During an interview with Shade 45’s host Sway Calloway, Kanye didn’t like the advice the host had to offer up and Kanye was quick to yell at him, saying he ‘ain’t got the answers’ — ouch! Not only did the two men bump heads, but they battled it out on the airwaves. LISTEN.
Mr. West has spoken! Kanye West, 36, sat down with Sway Calloway‘s Shade 45 radio show on Nov. 26, where he voiced his frustrations with the fashion industry — and the fact that they don’t take him, (and his clothing line), seriously. When Sway told the rapper to “empower” himself by launching a new line, Kanye totally flipped out.
Kanye West Snaps On Sway Calloway — His Latest Rant:
Kanye discussed the troubles he faced, saying, “It’s very difficult to get high-end, respected fashion people to work with someone that’s considered to be a musician. It’s very hard to get the good people,” he said. “It’s hard.” Next, the rapper began to discuss his collaboration with Nike and his anger at how the company tried to marginalize him — and he grew very passionate, (which you can hear below around the 17:00 minute mark). “I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh,” he said. “Walt Disney, Nike, Google — now, who’s going to be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more? Or do you want to marginalize me ’til I’m out of my moment?”
Sway responded and insisted that the YEEZUS rapper should “empower himself” by creating his own line without the backing of a big brand — and that’s when Kanye totally lost it! The rapper yelled, “How, Sway?! You ain’t got the answers, man!” He continued: “You ain’t got the answers, Sway! I’ve been doing this more than you! You trying to give me advice on something?” he continued. “You ain’t spend $13 million of your own money trying to empower yourself!”
Kanye West Apologizes To Sway Calloway:
Although Kanye was screaming, Sway wasn’t intimidated by the rapper’s rant. “Listen bro…I’m asking you a question. We here talking as civilized people, I’m trying to understand your world,” he said. “You ain’t gotta do this.”
Kanye began to calm down and the two were able to make amends. “I love you, man,” Sway told Kanye, as he responded with an apology. “I’m sorry,” Kanye said.
While we understand that Kanye is very passionate, we weren’t expecting him to flip out on the host! What do you think of his rant? VOTE.
