Kanye continues his media run with The Breakfast Club this morning. This one is another fascinating interview as you can imagine with both parties involved. Charlamagne Tha God is probably the most confrontational radio host out and he has been especially critical of Yeezus since the summer. Add that into the mix and we have a few contentious moments (see: 16 min., 24 min.), but we get even more out of Kanye West above all.
'Ye really goes in on classism, his frustration in the clothing world, the "rich people problems" as Charlamagne says, and more along these lines. As a close follower of these interviews and hearing 'Ye address these topics already, I learned even more about his perspective and where he's coming from. His frustration of being boxed in in a whole nother industry is something I feel a little more clear about after this interview. It's a must-watch for anyone who's still not fully there yet too.
A couple of brand new topics were touched on as well, namely Kanye's new "Bound 2" video that is up there with the Confederate Flag that has received the most criticism towards 'Ye. Kanye explains why he wanted it to look as phony as possible right around that 24 min. mark too. If you were also curious as to what Kanye and Kim thought of the "Bound 3" spoof that went viral yesterday, see that they can laugh about themselves below.
Lastly, did anyone else find it ironic and comedic that, perhaps the most open-ended question of the interview yielded the most simple answer from Kanye (towards the end):
"What is the end result for Kanye West? What are you looking to be?"
"If it was a movie, a combination of.. Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Michaelangelo... that's it."
If 2 Chainz's songs aren't enough to get you to like him, his interviews should do the trick. The artist recently dropped in at The Breakfast Club to discuss his new album, accompanying cookbook, leaving DTP, and the attempted robbery in San Francisco.
The 38 minute interview shows an artist who doesn't take himself too seriously, laughing at jokes about his price of $100,000 for a feature and his moniker, Tity Boi. Watch the full interview above.
Big Sean was in the Power 105.1 studio for an extensive interview with the Breakfast Club crew covering a variety of topics, including a future collab with Eminem, thoughts on "Yeezus," and his relationship with Travi$ Scott.
On Eminem, Sean was boastful of the legendary emcee's comments on his latest album, "Hall of Fame", saying "I ended up playing my whole album, front-to-back, straight through, and [Eminem] said, 'I haven't been this impressed in so long with someone's album. I knew you could rap.'" He hopes to make an effort at collaborating with Slim Shady in the near future, but couldn't really say anything about it for certain.
"I can tell you this. There's gonna be a Big Sean Eminem song," he said.
As far as the hot topic album of the summer, Big Sean's thoughts on "Yeezus" were positive but not gleaming. He admitted that it was not his favorite Kanye album, he ceded that title to "Late Registration." He does think that the new direction is significant, however.
"As far as the album goes, it ain't my favorite Kanye West album, but I think it's fresh," he said.
