The People vs O.J. Simpson won big at Sunday night’s Emmy awards, but there were two acceptance speeches that stood out amongst the sea of speeches.
Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown both won for their roles as Johnnie Cochran and Christopher Darden, and during their speeches they gave huge shout outs to their wives, but they both had Jay Z on their minds.
Brown took home the Emmy for best supporting actor in limited series/movie for The People vs. O.J. Simpson, and praised his wife: “Contrary to popular belief, I got the hottest chick in the game rockin’ my chain,” he said.
And Vance, who won the Emmy for best actor in a limited series/movie, made sure Angela Bassett knew she was the one rocking his chain, “Last but not least, to the woman who rocks my chain — thank you Angela Bassett, this one’s for you girl.”
Of course there were people who needed an explainer when it came to the lyrics and white sites quickly hopped on it:
