Baby No. 2 may be coming soon, but Kanye West has some business to attend to first.

Just a few weeks prior to Kim Kardashian's due date, the famous rapper traveled to New York City for Footwear News' 29th Annual Achievement Awards.

While accepting his award for Shoe of the Year thanks to the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350, West expressed his gratitude at his latest accomplishment. He also couldn't help but acknowledge the exciting family news coming sooner rather than later.

"I'm waiting on my son to arrive any day now and I look at my daughter and I look at my wife and she's rich and I don't plan on being broke," he joked to the audience Wednesday night. "I'm so, so focused on creating."

According to guests, West spoke lovingly about wanting to create joy in designing shoes the way his daughter North West creates joy by jumping up and down.

He also admitted that the design and concept first began after that all-too-memorable Taylor Swift scandal at the MTV Video Music Awards.

"After the infamous Taylor Swift moment, I did a little self-exile just to get away from paparazzi and have people not f--king with me constantly," he shared. "First thing I did was go to Japan" where the brainstorming started.

Shortly after the speech, Kim took to Instagram to share her support for her man's latest award.

"So well deserved!!!! Congrats babe on winning Shoe of the Year Award!" she wrote on social media. "I see how hard you work and how meaningful this award is! #Yeezys #Adidas."

As to his look for the evening, some were surprised to see the designer in casual attire for his latest honor. Sporting a black T-shirt and black jeans, West may have even caught some people off guard.

"I know a lot of you are thinking, ‘Where's his suit jacket?'" he told the audience. "But if my wife's not here, no suit jacket."

Before the night was over, the designer had one final message that any Yeezus fan would appreciate.

"Your job is to create while you are here," he shared with the crowd. "And if anything stalls that or gets in the way of that, we have to burn it to the f--king ground."
