Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West let the world know he has not yet peeped controversial remarks radio host Rush Limbaugh made about him and the recently leaked racist SAE footage.
Instead of giving a one-sided opinion, Kanye told a paparazzo he was not familiar with the comment at Los Angeles International Airport this week.
“I haven’t heard it. I’ve been out of town, man. I don’t know everything that’s happening. I’ma check it and let you know the next time I see you. All right, bro.” (TMZ)

In a radio broadcast this week, Limbaugh name-dropped Yeezus.
“If this had been a song by Kim Kardashian‘s husband and then sung this song at the Grammys, it’d be a hit,” Rush said in his radio broadcast this week. “Do we agree with that? That’s number one.” (“The Rush Limbaugh Show”)
Although disgusted after seeing the now-infamous racist chant footage this week, rapper Waka Flocka Flame said he was embraced during a performance for them last year.
“My initial reaction when I seen the video was, I was more hurt, more disgusted, because I knew those kids. I performed for those kids. They made me feel like a brother. Just to see what a person does behind closed doors is disgusting than hurt. I wasn’t angry. I was just disgusted. [Did I feel racism when I partied with them last year?] Not at all. I felt like I was part of the frat. I really felt like a frat boy when I was there, I really felt like I was down with the fraternity with SAE. I was SAE. You couldn’t tell me different.” (CNN)
Waka spoke out via a statement to defend ditching an April 25 concert at the University of Oklahoma this week.
“…All races partying, having a good time and enjoying themselves peacefully. That’s what Waka Flocka is all about. For that reason, I must say I’m disgusted and disappointed in the actions of the SAE fraternity at the University of Oklahoma and I will be cancelling my scheduled performance for them next month.” (Statement)
