Is Kanye West Done With Rap?

Is Kanye West Done With Rap?

    With the release of his new auto-tune singing filled album, many rumors have started that Kanye West is done rapping, but are they true? The Observer newspaper quoted Kanye saying "hip-hop is over for me now" after a press conference in New Zealand [watch here] but Kanye quickly squashed that rumor.

    "What does that mean," Ye' asked. "Hip-hop is over for me? I never said that." Kanye says the paper took him saying he didn't listen to rap at his apartment, out of text. "That quote is like so wrong," West responded. [watch here] "I never said that. I still listen to hip-hop in my car. I listen to old Wu-Tang or something while I’m designing and stuff like that. I really don’t listen to new hip-hop albums that come out like that. I really don’t learn the lyrics the way I used to learn the lyrics when I was 18 years old and stuff like that. Even albums like Lil Wayne‘s album, which I love, I couldn’t recite the raps for you. I’m just not in that position. Maybe I’m just busy. It disturbs me that they paraphrase me." [watch here]
