Kanye West Defends Drake Against Rolling Stone

Kanye West and Drake

Kanye West is jumping to Drake’s defense after this week’s Rolling Stone controversy. During his “Yeezus Tour” stop in Newark, New Jersey, on Saturday, the outspoken rapper slammed the magazine for trying to create a rift between them.

Drake reportedly criticized Kanye’s album Yeezus in the issue. “There were some real questionable bars on there,” the Toronto MC was quoted as saying. “Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.”

Drizzy later tweeted, “I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone.”

But ‘Ye has sided with Drake, defending him during his concert. “I’m gonna tell you what it is about magazines,” he told the crowd at Prudential Center. “They always be trying to pit ni**as against each other and that ain’t going down no more.”

He continued, “So tonight it ain’t none of that. We love Drake. We love every motherfu**er that put their heart into this motherfu**in’ music. If anything, we gon’ go after motherfu**ers writing that negativity. Before they print some shit like that, they need to check with me and him and see if it’s OK before they get ran up in their motherfu**in’ office.”

“It only costs $250 to beat your ass,” he sang.

Listen to Yeezy defend Drizzy and put the media on blast.

    Right? I feel where both of them are coming from, but they’re acting like they’re on the brink of a revolution. It’s just an interview.

    @Chloé Magnolia, it’s an attack on the media and the negativity it breeds. These “ladies”? Media’s already got you adopting the trendy transphobic/homophobic slang the ladies and “ladies” of reality tv (Rhoa, Tamar Braxton, Love & Hip Hopetc) stole from the gays and have you thinking is hip. Wouldn’t you agree media powerful?

    Stay sleep slave. It’s levels to these mind games the media sets up and it seems you’re not up to the task of navigating them.

    @T, Cool it. Obviously the media manipulates the public, you don’t have to be a genius to see that. Your ass was condescending as hell with that reply. All I said was that I think both of them overreacted.

    @Chloé Magnolia, that’s not all you said. You didn’t acknowledge the media manipulation. You just implied they were acting out of turn for no reason. You consigned the media by omission. I just wasn’t with trivializing the issue. That’s how the media disarms the masses now with “humor” you gotta call that bullsh*t out early

    My apologies for the condescension,

    @T, I appreciate the apologies.

    I didn’t acknowledge it, because that type of stuff speaks for itself. When Kanye starts talking about running up in people’s offices and Drake mentions the “magnitude” of a cover, I feel they’re blowing things out of proportion.

    Magazines have to sell and we’ve all been around long enough to know that one day they praise a man, just to throw dirt on his name the next. It’s not that deep.

    But, once again, I really do appreciate the apologies.

    @latonya, yeah, you need to cool it as well. What’s up with all of you trying to be as rude as possible when you slightly disagree with someone?

    Come back when you actually want to have a conversation.

    At the very least, it’s good to see that Kanye is intelligent enough to know when he’s being manipulated (that paparazzi altercation notwithstanding). Props to him for being mature enough to realize that Drake was not trying to shade him on record.

  6. bye

    Bitch bye. The media can be scumbags, but Rolling Stone aren’t going to fabricate quotes like that. Hence why he said “the interview portion” – it’s pretty obvious that he said it and RS recorded it, he’s just angry because he got caught slipping.

    Any artist who has been around for as long as he has now, should know that it’s journalists’ jobs to get the best quotes and they’re not going to omit it just because it may hurt someone’s feelings.
