Another day, another Kanye rant.
The Motherf*cker stood up for his friend Drake, who may or may not have said some unpleasant things about Yeezus in a recent Rolling Stone interview. During his Saturday Night ritual at Jersey’s Prudential Center, Kanye alerted fans that he wasn’t going to fall for the media’s okie doke of “pitting n****s against each other.”
“Sidebar: you keep on talking about Drake and shit and I’m gonna tell you what it is with these magazines. They always be trying to pit niggas against each other and that ain’t going down no more. So tonight it ain’t none of that, we love Drake, we love every motherfucker that put their heart into this motherfucking music. If anything, we gonna go after motherfuckers writing that negativity. Before that prints and shit like that they need to check with me and him to see if it’s okay before they get ran up in they motherfucking office. It only cost $250 (thousand) to beat your ass.”
Kanye also commented on the Red Octobers being released after leaving the sneaker giant. He ain’t eem mad.
“The idea that those Yeezys sold out in eleven minutes, yeah that’s good for my ego. But the problem is that there’s 20,000 of ya’ll, so you know what, that’s not good for my people. And the reason why I made the decision between Adidas and Nike, is because Adidas said, ‘I can make more product for more people.’
“I’m not here to be some type of novelty that you put in a glass box. So you could say that you’re the company that released the Yeezys and then can’t nobody get’em so you get them fake ass, all red everything else that you’re dropping. You be seeing that shit. You like fuck it, ‘I’m gonna get the Jordan part 800’s and shit. Least they all red from a distance, or if I’m in a club and it’s real dark this girl gon’ think I got on the Yeezys.’”
