Yo Jay Z, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Taylor Swift will be Kanye West‘s best collaboration of all time. OF ALL TIME.
Yeezus has called into Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show to further explain the Grammy’s controversy he landed himself in, and to reveal what may be the most ultimate dream team the industry has ever seen. On whether he’s considered collaborating with Taylor swift, Kanye West said:
“Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in. Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I’m down to get in the studio and work. I don’t discriminate, I don’t have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album. I that think everyone loves music whether they love hip-hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you’re Beyonce, whether you’re Taylor Swift, whether you’re Jay Z, whether you’re Beck, whoever, and they can be reciprocal with that, I’d like to be involved with that.”
THAT’S A YES, PEOPLE. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
Perhaps this collab will be Tay’s true chance at cracking the Hottest 100? Can’t bloody wait.
West also elaborated on his Grammys move against Beck. Attributing the ballsy move to “voices in my head” goes down far nicer than his first crack at explaining the move. You’re okay, Kanye, you’re okay:
“You know, I felt like just the whole Grammys, right when that happened, everybody was looking at me and then people started screaming, “Kanye! Kanye! Go do it!” Ok, that didn’t really happen, these were voices in my head. So the voices in my head told me go and then I just walked up like halfway up the stage. You know, what I really wanted to do is just joke around about what had happened before, but I just really didn’t want to take away from Beck’s moment or the time he’s having to talk…So I just walked back down because you know, it was kind of a joke like the Grammys themselves.”
On his post-Grammys rant, regarding the “artistry” statement: “I think it came off the wrong way, and that was a mis-wording on my part because obviously Beck is one of the most respected artists and respects artistry.” Ye also added, in his defence: “It’s very hard for Kanye West to not be very true and vocal to what he feels.”
Fkn oath, ‘Ye.
