Kanye West is opening up about a number of different subjects in a brand new and very informative interview on "The Breakfast Club." The rapper sat down with Charlamagne, DJ Envy and Angela Yee to talk about everything -- and there was no holding back (in true Yeezy fashion).
Ye talked about Amber Rose, Kylie Jenner & Tyga's relationship, whether his wife Kim Kardashian and Beyonce have beef with each other, his recent dinner with Taylor Swift, Beck and his Grammy-winning album, a possible Drake collaboration album, Mike Brown, and so much more. And he did it all with a smile.
On Amber Rose:
"If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, there wouldn’t be an Amber Rose." He added, "It's very hard for a woman to wanna be with someone that's with Amber Rose. I had to take thirty showers before I got with Kim."
As you'll recall, Amber made some bold statements on "The Breakfast Club" recently regarding Kanye's sister-in-law Kylie and rapper Tyga. She said that the rapper "should be ashamed of himself" and called Kyle a "baby" who "needs to go to bed at 7 o'clock and relax."
Meanwhile, Tyga went on "The Breakfast Club" to deny any romantic relationship with Kylie at all. Well, Ye IS Kylie's brother-in-law after all ... so what does he think of the situation?
On Tyga and Kylie Jenner:
"I think he got in early, I think he was smart. They are closer in age than a lot of relationships that I know. I knew Tyga was smart."
But, ultimately said that he said that he "can't speak on nobody’s relationship."
Kylie wasn't the only Kardashian Kanye commented on. His wife Kim popped up in the interview numerous times, and The Breakfast Club asked him a burning question that a lot of people are dying to know the answer to after circulating rumors: Do Kim Kardashian and Beyonce have a problem? He put those rumors to rest.
On whether Beyonce and Kim Kardashian have beef:
"No, they love each other. They respect each other. When Beyonce's working on an album, she has like pictures of Kim on the wall, because Kim represents powerful women. Kim be playing '7/11,' playing that video, playing it for our daughter. They definitely respect each other."
Side note: Kim isn't the only female on Beyonce's wall -- don't worry, kids.
But back to Beyonce. It seems like every time Kanye gets up to interrupt someone's acceptance speech, it's always on behalf of Queen Bey. Ye has kind of become her unofficial advocate for winning awards. But why? Kanye explained what Beyonce has that makes her deserving of winning honors like a Grammy for Album of the Year.
"I think Beyonce is a great representation of an artist working hard, and trying her best and getting the results from it."
But, what about Beck? Did Kanye even listen to his Grammy-winning album? Actually, a little bit! And it was while he was out to dinner with Taylor Swift.
On his dinner with Taylor Swift/Beck's Grammy-winning album:
"The other day I went to dinner and sat down with Taylor Swift, and ironically they were playing the Beck album." He continued, "Maybe they did it on purpose so I could finally hear it. But I was like 'man, this is kinda good.' I ain’t even gonna lie."
Kanye added, "I bet you the album is really good. I'm gonna listen to the album, and maybe it was potentially an album of the year. But the Grammys are still ... they have a commercial component to it. And they want to sell commercials."
Sooo, has Kanye talked to Beck after Grammy-gate 2015? He says, "I got his number, and I was supposed to call, but I just keep forgetting."
Oh, to be a fly on the wall (or in the phone?) when THAT convo happens.
So Kanye talked about Beyonce's album, and Beck's album ... but what about HIS album? After "FourFiveSeconds," "Only One," and "Wolves," we are dying to hear more. Yeezy explained that the record is about 80% finished and he's trying to finish it up ASAP.
On Kanye's new album:
"[The album is] music that just feels good. My last album was a protest of music." He continues, "This album is just embracing the music, embracing the joy, and being of service to the people. I just hope that people like it and enjoy it. That's it!"
Speaking of "Wolves," Kanye revealed that the song originated from the idea of a possible Drake collaboration album! Ye said that the album ultimately never happened ... but that doesn't mean it won't happen sometime in the future.
On Kanye's new "Wolves" song:
"The 'Wolves' song came from a conversation that me and Drake had, where we was gonna do an album together. And the album was called Wolves."
While we wait for a Kanye West/Drake collaboration album to be born, we'll just keep listening to Yeezy's "Wolves" song on repeat. "Wolves" will appear on his new upcoming album ... but that's not all that is making the album. Kanye's new record will include issues like Mike Brown.
Come to think of it, Kanye was pretty quiet during the Mike Brown/Eric Garner ordeals. But Kanye explained to "The Breakfast Club" exactly why.
On not being vocal about Mike Brown:
"Yea, my dad would e-mail me and say 'Stay out of it.' And my dad is like, a thousand times smarter than me and a thousand times more social than me. He literally lived at a homeless shelter. And he e-mailed me and told me to stay out of it. That's my only parent, so I have to listen to him ... sometimes. I think he was just trying to be protective of his son. You know, I can't run in front of every bullet."
But rest assured, Kanye will talk about the subject on his new album. He says, "I'm always gonna talk about what's going on. It's definitely gonna be in it."
