Kanye West doesn’t need to produce another piece of music ever again because his personal life will keep him in the public eye for decades. And I doubt he’ll ever stop doing stupid shit. Case in point: a brand new BBC documentary titled The Trouble with KanYe will be discussing, you guessed it, the trouble with Kanye. And it’s really nothing new since the audience will once again be treated to his love for antisemitism from former business partner Alex Klein, who alleges when they parted ways, Kanye transformed into Hitler 2.0 with words that ensure he will never be invited to a synagogue for the rest of his days.
According to Deadline, the new doc is set to premiere on BBC Two, and I doubt there will be any new information that leads us to believe Kanye isn’t as unstable as a cheap motel Wi-Fi connection. In fact, one thing the doc leans into is his antisemitism. Alex recounted a heartwarming tale about the time he partnered with Kanye to create the overly priced Stem player, which looks like a birth control case for Jane and Judy Jetson.
It was a potential match made in hell because, with its hefty price tag during the height of the pandemic, nobody had extra funds to support Kanye or his product. But that wasn’t what drove a wedge between Alex and Kanye’s partnership. As always, it was Kanye’s big mouth, which comfortably houses antisemitic phrases, and after one of his tirades, Alex knew it was time for them to part ways. But not before Kanye had an opportunity to tell Alex he wished he could say goodbye with a love tap to the face.
Klein created West’s Stem Player for his Donda 2 album but the pair broke contact following West’s prior antisemitic remarks, according to Klein, who claims this led to West’s outburst, which is revealed in the doc.Speaking to the LA Times last year, Klein also said West “tried to call me racist when I gently told him that attacking a whole race of people wasn’t good for him or Stem.”
