Kanye West showed up to The FADER offices yesterday wearing a sweatshirt with Colin Kaepernick’s name on the front, white jeans after Labor Day and a “redesigned” (it’s the same) MAGA hat. So you can pretty much tell how things went from there.
Kanye was at The FADER offices for a meeting. I don’t know what the meeting could have been for but it turned into… something else. FADER obviously couldn’t fit all of the insane things that he said into one article (they probably couldn’t fit in a full novel, the man is a philosopher of fools) but they do have a small collection of Kanye’s madness for us to chuckle over and confuse ourselves with. Let’s get into it.
Kanye played the people at FADER some unfinished songs from his new album YANDHI… like… as in Gandhi? Oh dear god… Ty Dolla $ign was on some of the tracks, and so was child-misconducter 6ix9ine and also deceased rapper XXXtentacion who was once accused of kidnapping and abusing his pregnant girlfriend. Great crowd. He said that Rihanna is going to be sent a hook of a song so she can record it and that the album will be out on Saturday. Here’s a clip of him rapping along to himself:

He also asked the room of people if he should change some of his lyrics and “invited several people to his studio for followup discussions and input.” Dude, just call your talented wife Kim Kardashian if you need musical advice.
Kanye had a bunch of other weird shit to say. Thankfully for us, FADER made a list of “some” of what he said:
— About being the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend, Kanye shared that he would have preferred to have Louis C.K., who has admitted to jacking off in front of women without their permission, as host.
— For weeks, Kanye has been sharing updates about highlighting “positive” words in his pocket dictionary. He talked about several of these words and the way they informed his new music.
— He said that he would have “run, fought, or got killed” if he were a slave. (One of the new songs he previewed states multiple times “I’m giving up my slave name.“)
— He incorrectly stated that there were only 800 slaves in the 1800s. (That number is closer to 3.9 million).
— He also said that there are 2 million slaves in the U.S. now, referring to the number of people trapped in the private prison system.
— As part of a longer explanation about the word “artificial,” read out of his pocket dictionary, he said “a woman’s pussy count goes back to zero” after having any plastic surgery procedures done. This was related to the track he played with 6ix9ine.
— On his move back to Chicago, he said he’s meeting with Mayor Rahm Emanuel soon to discuss various projects, which may or not include a building a school/studio in the heart of the city.
— He also said he wants to build a flying-car factory in Chicago with the help of Tesla alums.
— He called Trump and Sandy Hook denier Alex Jones as “matrix breakers.”
A lot to unpack. Why does he need to explain the word artificial to people? We all know what that means. Like, you only learned it yesterday? Didn’t Kim explain it when you met? Artificial ass? Artificial face? No? I mean, I guess I’m glad Kanye is so excited to read, must be his first time.
I’m not even touching his slavery redux.
So, a 41-year-old grown man was in public spouting at the mouth about building a flying-car factory, how a Kardashians kooch “goes back to zero” every time she has an organ removed so her waist gets thinner (or whatever surgery procedure they’re into now), and inaccurate facts about slavery? If I did that, I’d either be dragged away to a mental health facility STAT or the food and drug administration would demand to know what kind of stuff I did so they can name it the most messed-up drug out there.
