G.O.O.D. Music leader Kanye West isn’t afraid to let people into his personal life. The hip-hop star has shared his thoughts on a range of topics from supporting President Donald Trump to dealing with the fact he’s not atop the rap chain anymore.
In a rare Q&A, Kanye explained why he can accept not running the music charts anymore but finding dominance in other entertainment fields.
“Losing “ruler,” “king,” “crown.” And it was this thing where it’s like O.K., you’re not the No. 1 rapper, Drake’s the No. 1 rapper, but you’re the No. 1 with shoes, or this or that. And it’s like yo, no more No. 1s. What’s the No. 1 tree over there? Just be one of them. All of them are beautiful. If you cut one of those trees down, what would it be worth? Those look like $400,000 trees, just one of them, and look at how many of them are.” (New York Times)
Yeezy also talked about feeling like there’s a group of high-profile but super low-key Trump supporters in the world.
“I felt that I knew people who voted for Trump that were celebrities that were scared to say that they liked him. But they told me, and I liked him, and I’m not scared to say what I like,” he said. “Let me come over here and get in this fight with you.” (New York Times)
Earlier this month, Yeezy shocked hip-hop fans by announcing an end to the publicized Drake and G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha-T feud.
I’ve never been about beef I’m about love lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone so this is dead now
