It took me the majority of this week and the Thanksgiving holiday to digest what fully went down on Sway’s Shade 45 Morning show a few days ago.
Well, the interview started off normal with veteran music journalist, Sway Calloway, running down the list of accomplishments the avant-garde rapper has attained, but you can definitely sense that chip on Kanye’s shoulder from a previous run-in interview with Charlamange Tha God and The Breakfast Club.
The interview begins with Kanye doing his typical rant of how corporations are marginalizing his creativity because of his brand as a rapper, and as Sway attempted to not interrupt Ye but get a few questions in, all hell broke loose when Sway asked why the rapper couldn’t “empower himself” in regards to his fashion line.
YOU AIN’T GOT THE ANSWERS, SWAY! You ain’t spent 13 million dollars of your own money trying to empower yourself!
Sway definitely was not having it and kept it 100 with the rapper, reminding Kanye that he was still on earth and that the interview would happen with or without any of the studio mics and cameras.
During the rest of interview, Ye pulled the “Woah is Me” card but surprisingly was able to clear up why he went so hard and somewhat sincerely apologized for his outburst.
