On Drink Champs, Kanye West discusses Cancel Culture, Drake’s feud, and more
After releasing Donda, Kanye West appeared on REVOLT’s Drink Champs podcast with co-hosts N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN, where he discussed a wide range of topics. In addition to Donda (which is apparently getting an upgraded edition), his split from Kim Kardashian, the 2009 VMAs, his feud with Drake, the Balenciaga underwear line, and Damien Hirst’s work as an artist (as well as being “shadowbanned” from Twitter), his new choppy haircut (“harder than wearing a Trump hat”) were all topics of conversation.
First, let’s check on Ye’s COVID vaccination record. West admitted to the hosts, “I’m half-icnated.” So, that’s all right.
On another occasion, West stated that he would need “about four people to go against me at one time” if he wanted to take on Verzuz. If he were pitted against Drake, he said he would win because Jay-Z is “that’s my boss.” Alternatively, “at some point, I can just be going against myself.”” But he did praise Drake’s music later, saying that “he added something to the algorithm” because it was “massively accessible.”
Weezy went on the defensive later when asked if Drake’s home address had been made public by someone who had seen it advertised while West was building the house. It’s like a monument in Canada, everyone knows where it is! “Googleable”
Big Sean, the former GOOD Music rapper who announced last week that he was leaving the label “to start getting a bigger cut,” was also a topic of conversation for Ye. Sean signing was “the worst thing I ever did” and “when I die, on my tombstone it’s going to say I deserve to be here because I signed Big Sean,” West said in an interview with Rolling Stone. Is Big Sean involved in a dispute? John Legend and Big Sean were “used quick by the democrats to come at the boy that actually changed their life… that’s some sellout shit” by West when he ran for office, he explained.
While sitting next to Marilyn Manson and DaBaby after they had both been cancelled for five songs… There is no way they could cancel us all.” There will be no cancellation of Dave Chappelle’s show because he’s a great comedian, NORE said. Continuing, West said, “That’s what I’m saying.” “They’re going to accuse you of having sex with someone ten years ago,” he says. Moreover, there are women who have been subjected to traumatic experiences, such as being dragged into alleys against their will. This is not a hug, but it falls under the same umbrella as one.
