Kanye West, known for not holding anything back, did not disappoint in his awaited return to 105.1’s The Breakfast Club. Charlamagne started off on a positive note stating that he enjoys his two latest singles “Only One” and “Wolves” but did state that he did not like when Kanye felt the need to sing in autotune on “FourFiveSeconds”. Kanye agreed and replied that he wasn’t really a fan of autotune himself but he needs it to hit some trippy notes.
On his new sneaker project Yeezy 750 Boost, Kanye expressed that making them in limited quantity and so expensive was the decision of adidas.
“I didn’t want them to be limited, I wanted as many people to get them as possible. There was no limited amounts of college dropout… people should be spending that money on their families.”
To my surprise Ye’ stated that he was at dinner with Taylor Swift and ironically Beck‘s album began to play in the restaurant… coincidence? I think not. As he sat and listened he said to himself, “Man this is kind of good!” and admitted to never have listening to Beck’s music prior to the Grammy fiasco. Although Kanye likes Beck’s music he still asserted that he should have won the best rock album instead of album of the year.
Kanye has not been the only one in the media spotlight lately, his wife Kim has been right there with him. Upon being asked about people coming for her nude shoots, specifically with Paper Magazine, Kanye defends his wife and relates her to the iconic figure Grace Jones.
“Jean-Paul Gaultier used to shoot Grace Jones because her physique was so different and new. My daughter might end up having that physique so ima fight until that shape represents the highest level of class. Her (Kim) power is in her body. She can get naked if she wants to. If Adam never ate the apple we would all be naked.”
In light of the Amber Rose vs. Kardashian beef, The Breakfast Club could not wait to ask Kanye about his thoughts on the matter to which Kanye utterly disrespects his ex.
“She (Amber) was just soaking in the moment. If Kim had wanted to date me when I first wanted to date her there would be no Amber Rose. I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.” …Yikes.
“(Silence) I think that he got in early. I think he was smart… but I can’t speak on the man’s relationship.”
A bit wishy washy if you ask me but it seems like he’s not opposed to Tyga possibly being a part of the family.
Lastly, Mr. West stated that his album is about 80% finished with his upcoming project.
“It’s gonna be bars, songs, cookout music that just feels good. My last album was a protest to music. I was like ‘I’m gonna take my ball and go home’.”
Watch the rest of the interview to hear Kanye’s thoughts on Race, Class, Dame Dash and why he always defends Beyonce.
