Kanye West stopped by Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” and SiriusXM’s “Sway in the Morning” on Tuesday, but only one radio show got him heated. When speaking to his friend Sway Calloway (the one who he gave a TV to), a very passionate ‘Ye lost his cool and flipped out.
“I’m standing up and I’m telling you, I am Warhol,” said ‘Ye. “I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney, Nike, Google—now who’s gon’ be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more? Or do you want to marginalize me till I’m out of my moment?”
Sway responded, “Or why don’t you empower yourself and don’t need them and do it yourself?”
But Kanye didn’t take too well to the question and barked back. “How Sway?! You ain’t got the answers, man. You ain’t got the answers. I’ve been doing this more than you.”
When Sway told him to “chill out,” he said, “You ain’t spend $13 million a year of your money trying to empower yourself.”
Sway explained that he has spent hundreds of thousands on his clothing line, to which Kanye said, “And it ain’t no Ralph [Lauren] though. What’s the name of your clothing line? We don’t know.”
After Sway calmed him down, ‘Ye apologized for his outburst. “I love you man. I’m sorry.”
Kanye also explained how he wanted Big Sean to take off some of the songs on his album Hall of Fame. “It upset me as a hip-hop artist a bit. Now he gon’ turn up on this next one,” he said.
When Sway asked who would be No. 1 on MTV’s “Hottest MCs in the Game” list now, he said, Drake.
Watch both interviews below. Kanye’s confrontation with Sway starts around the 17-minute mark.
