The Clipse's Pusha T recently offered a take on his G.O.O.D Music boss Kanye West getting into a blown out feud with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel last month.
Clearly in support of Mr. West, Pusha explained why Kanye reacted the way he did.
"People just really need to understand that he's really no nonsense," explained Pusha. "He's very passionate about everything he's telling to the people. Nine times out of 10, he's enlightening you or showing you the way. I feel like when someone makes light of it, he may take it to heart. I'm Team Kanye. I don't really care about the other guy." (Rap-Up)
Asked for a take on Kimmel poking fun at rap pal Yeezy during his recent in-depth interview with BBC Radio 1, Miami rapper Rick Ross had a less than friendly response.
"I really didn't watch all the interview. I just saw some of the Jimmy Kimmel sh*t. F*ck Jimmy Kimmel. You know we riding with the culture. So, Jimmy Kimmel he ain't welcome here no more. You understand it? People who cross that line they not welcome no more. But as far as Kanye, I just love his passion. And I feel anybody that love what they do you gotta respect someone that is that passionate about what they do because homie a hundred mill you can just sit back and really don't give a f*ck, but he actually cares about the culture. He puts that much passion into it." (MTV)
It looks like Kanye West has had a little change of heart. Just days after the rapper went on a Twitter tirade bashing Jimmy Kimmel, the new dad deleted all the posts from his account. ICYMI, Kanye slammed Kimmel on Twitter last week after the late night host spoofed a recent interview the rapper gave to BBC Radio 1?s, Zane Lowe. Kimmel hired two young kid actors to re-enact West's interview with Lowe, but the "Black Skinhead" rapper was not pleased with the video. "Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years," Kanye wrote on the social media website. "Jimmy Kimmel, I don't take it as a joke ... You don't have scum bags hopping over fences trying to take pictures of your daughter," another tweet read. On Thursday night, Kimmel addressed the issue on Jimmy Kimmel Live, sharing with his audience that Kanye called him an hour before going on air. (Hip Hollywood)
Mr. West hopped onto his Twitter page last week to spark the Twitter feud.
"JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS," Ye tweeted September 26.
"JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON'T TAKE IT AS A JOKE.... YOU DON'T HAVE SCUM BAGS HOPPING OVER FENCES TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR DAUGHTER"
"JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES ... OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD P*SSY IN YOUR LIFE..."
"YOU CAN'T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY... IS THAT FUNNY?... OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD IT BE FUNNY???"
"SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F*CKING BEN AFFLECK...#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!"
"I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY'S WEDDING"
"WHO YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME WASN'T YOUR FAMILY WHEN I WAS ON THEN PHONE WITH YOU 5 MINUTES AGO, YOU MANIPULATIVE MEDIA MUTHERF*CKER."
"SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!" (Kanye West's Twitter)
