Kanye West recently popped back into the news with a rage fueled rant geared towards Charlamagne Tha God and Sway Calloway, among others. Seems like West is far from over, and shared another insightful monologue at his Yeezus show in Newark last night (Feb 15).
West began by addressing Drake and the recent incident involving the OVO rapper and Rolling Stone Magazine.
“Sidebar: you keep on talking about Drake and shit and I’m gonna tell you what it is with these magazines,” Kanye said. “They always be trying to pit niggas against each other and that ain’t going down no more. So tonight it ain’t none of that, we love Drake, we love every motherfucker that put their heart into this motherfucking music. If anything, we gonna go after motherfuckers writing that negativity. Before that prints and shit like that they need to check with me and him to see if it’s okay before they get ran up in they motherfucking office. It only costs 250 to beat your ass,” he sang in an auto-tune manipulated voice.
West later went on to discuss the YEEZY 2 sneaker release, Nike as a whole, and his new partnership with Adidas.
“And don’t think I’m upset because I’m actually very, very happy,” he said. “The idea that those Yeezys sold out in eleven minutes, yeah that’s good for my ego. But the problem is that there’s 20,000 of ya’ll, so that’s not good for my people. And the reason I made the decision between Adidas and Nike, is because Adidas said ‘I can make more product for more people.’ I’m not here to be some type of novelty that you put in a glass box. So you could say that you’re the company that released the Yeezys and then can’t nobody get’em so you get them fake ass, all red everything else that you’re dropping. You be seeing that shit. You like fuck it, ‘I’m gonna get the Jordan part 800’s and shit. Least they all red from a distance, or if I’m in a club and it’s real dark this girl gon’ think I got on the Yeezys.’”
