Kanye West is full of information. Not much of it is relevant or good or coherent, but he sure has got a ton of it inside of him to let out. So when he spoke with David Letterman for his new Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, he talked about everything from Trump to his Khurch to his idea about wanting a future where children can “float.” He really dives deep into the crevices of that deluded mind and unearthed plenty. Including how he is no longer allowed to talk about something. I know! Kanye West not allowed to say nonsense? He has never taken that advice before. Why now? Hmmm… maybe because it has to do with the most powerful man in Canada. No, not the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau–I’m talking about Drake.
Drake and Kanye have slapped at each other occasionally. Drake rapped that Kanye “flopped”. Kanye allegedly leaked that Drake had a secret love-child. Drake allegedly “threatened” Kanye. Kanye dragged Drake for wanting to sample a song, or something? People even said that Drake banged Kim Kardashian and she was Kiki in that song he has where he sleeps with Kiki? Well, after all that mess, it seems that Drake had his people send Kanye a lil’ cease and desist-type situation because now he’s keeping mum about it all.
According to Pitchfork, Kanye spoke to David about an “artist” he’s not allowed to mention:
After prefacing an anecdote by referencing “an artist which I will not mention because I’m not allowed to mention him or any of his family members,” Dave interrupted Kanye to call that description “fairly provocative.” Kanye explained, ‘Well, we had a little beef last year.” He then quoted a favorite line from “Crew Love.”
I had to Google it too, Crew Love is a Drake song.
Kanye also got deep into talking about his illness, describing when he was hospitalized:
“You feel everyone wants to kill you, you pretty much don’t trust everyone, and they have this moment where they handcuff you, they drug you, they put you on the bed, and they separate you from everyone you know. That’s something that I’m so happy I experienced myself so I can start by changing that moment. When you are in that state, you have to have someone you trust. It is cruel and primitive to do that.”
Kanye also says while he’s “not advocating” that people go off their medication, he hasn’t been taking bipolar meds for eight months, and says it’s partly about the music and creative process:
“That’s just the reality. You know, if you guys want these crazy ideas, these crazy stages, this crazy music, and this crazy way of thinking, there’s a chance it might come from a crazy person.”
He also talked more about Trump:
“I got people that I work with—black, female, all different types of people—that love Trump, voted for Trump, scared for life to tell anyone.”
But Kanye isn’t one of those people who’s scared to say they support Trump! He’s also not one of those people who voted, as he tells David: “I’ve never voted in my life.”
What. A. Role. Model. Kids: stop taking your bipolar meds to be a better artist and stop voting for your futures NOW!
