The Young Money Entertainment CEO thanked his family, fans and friends, for standing by him during his long, tumultuous career.

"This award right here, I must give this award to the people who refused". "Recently, I did a freestyle for the BET Award cypher addressing and condemning rappers who unabashedly abuse women and those who stand up for them and even call them legends", Mensa said. Backed by his daughter Reginae Carter and his mother Jacida Carter, the "A Mili" rapper shared a testimony of how former officer named "Uncle Bob" saved his life when he shot himself at age 12. He bust in the door. He saw blood everywhere.

Wayne said that Uncle Bob still refuses to quit to this day despite having two amputated legs. "However, I vehemently reject the trend in hip-hop of championing abusers and I will not hold my tongue about it. I never knew, I talked to him the other day, I never knew EMS was on the scene". "I care about bringing awareness and holding people accountable for their actions". He said, 'You get whatever you gotta do and you make sure this child make it.' Not only that, that day, Uncle Bob was a homicide detective. During his acceptance speech, Wayne said that Uncle Bob wasn't on detail at the time of the incident, but "he just heard the call and came".
