Kanye West Joins G.O.O.D. Music Family to Perform ‘Mercy’ at 2012 BET Awards
The G.O.O.D. Music camp opened the 2012 BET Awards Sunday night (July 1) with their summer banger “Mercy.” Big Sean entered the stage on top of a giant all-white Lamborghini and was of course joined by the good company of Pusha T and 2 Chainz.
The crew donned all-white everything to rock the beginning of the awards show and kept it simple with glowing lights in purple hues and their bold lyrics — no other special effects or fancy revelry needed.
Kanye West surprised the audience when he appeared to rap his part, and closed out the set with his Hit-Boy-produced “Way Too Cold,” formerly titled “Theraflu.” In proper Yeezy fashion, he cut the music and gave fans a special a cappella verse of his new track “New God Flow,” stomping his foot with high energy.
He returned to the stage shortly after to accept the first BET Award of the night for Best Group as part of The Throne with his “big brother” Jay-Z.
“I wish Jay-Z was hear to say the politically correct thing,” West said at the mic while accepting his award. To his surprise, Hov appeared behind him and gave the Chicago native a hug before stepping forward. “I don’t know what he said but we worked really hard for this,” Jay-Z added.
