Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is going to give the world a deeper side of himself in an upcoming four-part interview series slated to premiere next week on BBC Radio 1.
Based on a 50-second teaser, Mr. West does not hold back on letting out his personal thoughts.
“It was good, that suit was like, I would have worn something different if I could look back right now. Exactly, but not for black music though. No flip flops for black dudes. Wear some hot a** Jordans on a beach. … You know, Dark Fantasy could be considered to be perfect. I say I know how to make perfect but that’s not what I’m here to do. People are going to look at this interview and say, ‘Hey, I understand what he’s talking about.’ People are going to look at this interview and say, ‘I don’t like Kanye. He looks mad, I don’t like his teeth.’ We the real rock stars and I’m the biggest of all of them. I’m the number one rock star on the planet.” (BBC 1 Radio)
Back in August, Kanye appeared on the “Kris Jenner Show” and unveiled his daughter’s face to the world.
Kanye West has been called many things, but these days the best description — according to him — is family man. The 36-year-old rapper appeared on Kris Jenner‘s daytime talk show “Kris” on Friday to discuss his relationship with Jenner’s daughter, Kim Kardashian, and their new addition, North. He did bring plenty of joy to Jenner’s show, as she beamed while displaying North’s photo for the audience. North, who was born June 15, has her mother’s eyes and father’s cheeks, according to Jenner. “The thing I think about as a dad is just protection. That’s my only goal, to Kanye said his goal is “to protect my daughter. That’s my instinct.” “To give my daughter as many opportunities to just be a child. Of course, a big thing that plagues us is this idea of the paparazzi chasing a 5-year-old around and screaming at them. … You have enough things to deal with and to learn being a new parent and you add that on top of it, and it becomes really intense.” (Fox 6 Now)
During the same interview, Yeezy told Kim K’s mother just how much he loved her.
“Being in the limelight, you have to have a match, or someone that’s equally yoked,” he told Jenner. “It’s difficult, because there’s people that you would date who would try to date you to maybe be more famous, or people who would want you to be less famous than you were, and just not accept who you are in life. And when I would be on the phone with her, even at my lowest moments, she’d give me energy and remind me of who I was. And I needed that support at all times.” (“Kris Jenner Show”)
Recently, G.O.O.D Music’s Pusha T spoke out and revealed he has already grown accustomed to Mr. West letting out his emotions publicly.
“First of all, when he asked me for the mic I almost fainted, then. I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, you want a mic?'” I purposefully had the mic far away because I didn’t even feel like talking. I just wanted to listen to the music. He asked for the mic. So then, I had to go get it. I was like, okay hold on a minute. Here we go. Just listening to him, man, he always sits around and has that braggy attitude about what’s being done in music. What he’s going to do in music. What we’ve done. Things we’ve created. ‘We made this. We made that.’ So it’s really not new to me. People just don’t know that. Until he goes on one of his wild rants. That’s when y’all get it.” (Hot 97)
