Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West left "106 & Park" viewers scratching their heads yesterday (April 9) after giving hosts Terrence J and Rocsi Diaz the silent treatment during an interview.
While coming out as a surprise guest for Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz's interview, Yeezy followed through with silence and head nodding.
Kanye West has shied away from the media as of late, but he made a surprise appearance alongside his Def Jam labelmate 2 Chainz on Monday's "106 & Park."

2 Chainz used the opportunity to boast about how much he respects Ye's talent.
"I feel like Kanye is the best producer in the world," the rapper said. "The way that he sees things is just different from anyone else, so it's just an honor to be in the studio with him at the same time and just kinda clashing worlds. My resume is filled with street credibility music, trap rap, and he kind of brings color and images to what I'm doing, so he'll definitely be a part of my project." ("106 & Park")
No stranger to silence, Ye has previously done mum interviews.
This isn't the first time Kanye exercised his right to remain silent. In 2011, Kanye did a silent interview with New York Mag where he only answered questions by shaking his head yes or no. After falling out with "The Today Show's" Matt Lauer, Kanye has refused to do any interviews, citing the media takes what he says out of context. (Global Grind)
