Kanye West is currently sitting down for a conversation on Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI, in which a wide variety of topics were, and are discussed at length.
For one, he apparently denies providing Pusha with anything, saying
“don’t pull me into the conversation.
I didn’t [give info to Pusha T].
I’m a family man, I got better things to do.”
Though he doesn’t namedrop Drake, he does say some suggestive comments seeming to implement the Scorpion rapper.
“People hang around your family and be in your house and then they get mad about a beat and send purple demon emojis.”
He also appeared to address Jimmy Kimmel’s “Does Donald Trump care about black people” comments.
“He cares about the way black people feel about him,
and he wants Black people to like him in the way they did before.
He wants to do the things necessary to make that happen.
He wants to be the greatest president,
and he knows he can’t be the greatest president without the support of black people.”
Clarifying his infamous slavery comment, Kanye attempts to add some context, claiming that it sounded like a choice
“the spirit of Kanye West, which I think is aligned with the spirit of Harriet Tubman, which I think is aligned with the spirit of Nat Turner.”
He proceeds to speak on how speaking in English is a form a slavery, as it’s not even his native tongue of Swahili.
“I am not crazy, but I can definitely go there if pushed,”
he admits, explaining he has ways of controlling it.
“I have the luxury version of mental health.”
Still, that doesn’t stop him from adding his own insight, claiming “we all have undiagnosed mental health issues,” he says.
“The biggest stigma of being called crazy is you instantly get written off,
that you don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“I want to take this moment right now to say I’m sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment,”
“I’m sorry to people who felt let down by that moment.”
Yeezy’s apology literally brings one of the hosts to tears, as she says
“your voice is so powerful, you have the ability to make changes for the African American community.”
Kanye responds by asking “can I have a hug?”
