Kanye West Tells the Music to Stop At Grammys (Video)

Kanye West was accepting his Grammy for best rap album when the music began to play, signaling to end his speech.

West said "C'mon, you're going to play the music on me?" But the music didn't stop.

West wanted to finish his speech and continued, adding he was thankful for the support he received following his mother's recent passing, and requested "it would be in good taste to stop the music then."

The organizers finally listened and stopped the music, and West completed his acceptance speech.

And here's a look at this performance at the 50th Grammys:
