New Kanye West Interview Explains Nothing

May 1, 2018 / Posted by:

If you’re tired of getting your daily dose of Kanye West in 280 characters or less, then you’re in luck. Kanye’s released a 145 minute interview he did with Charlamagne Tha God of Power 105.1. Sitting in his stark white house (one that chuckleheads on Twitter have described as looking like what an “unseasoned house” might look like), Kanye talked to Charlamagne about his current mental state, President Obama, Jay Z and his treasured Twitter account.

Not for nothing, I literally hit the play bar in the middle of the interview and got a random sampling of Kanye saying “I think negative gets too much of a negative wrap”. That’s a good indication of the sheer depth of Kanye’s intellect. And yes, he does consistently refer to himself in the third person as “Ye”, thanks for asking. Shall we proceed?

In case you have better things to do today than watch Kanye’s eyes unpredictably roll around his noggin and his bottom lip desperately try to escape it’s fate of getting turned into hamburger by his diamond grillz, here are some brief highlights.

Kanye on his current head space:

“I think I’m in a stronger place than I ever was. After the breakdown—or I like to say, the breakthrough.”

Kanye on Barack Obama:

At one point, Kanye reminisces on meeting President Obama, and being called a “jackass” by the president. “You know, he never called me to apologize.

(Thanks, Obama!)

Kanye on Jay Z:

We good. We tweetin I mean texting each other positive energy.

*Charlamagne* Have you seen each other?

Uh…, I haven’t seen him but I can feel him.

Lol, oh Kanye! Kanye also said that theTaylor Swift moment” at the VMAs led to his breakdown, and thought the doctors in the hospital were going to drug and kill him. Here’s the full interview.

Kanye needs one of those leashes you sometimes see on wild kids at the airport or at Costco, but for his mind. He’s all over the damn place. For example, this morning I was ready to report on Kanye’s tweet where he posted a picture of the doctor whom he blamed for his mother’s death. She died of complications while recovering from elective plastic surgery. Kanye said he wanted it to be his new album cover.

And while I looking into this on Twitter, I spent several minutes too many, trying to figure out the meaning behind this tweet:

By the way, that business with the doctor is sorted out. He wrote a response asking Kanye to please not use his picture on his next album and Kanye is A-OK with that.


Perhaps Eli with the drip can explain that one as well as what ever happened to the plan to save Chicago. It’s not mentioned on his newly launched WeGotLove website, which only seems to feature GIFs from Kanye’s interview. Poor Chicago, we barely knew you.
