My, how the times have changed: This time a year ago, let alone three months ago, Kanye West wouldn’t be caught dead in a radio station. But over the last week, we’ve seen Kanye make the rounds as he promotes the Yeezus world tour. This morning, he appeared on Los Angeles’ Power 106, where he discussed a variety of topics and even freestyled.
Among today’s revelations:
– Kanye said there are five songs leftover from Yeezus that he may put out later this year.
– “Lost in the World” was written about his fiancée, Kim Kardashian.
– He and Kim plan to get married next summer. “Two words: fighter jets,” he added.
– He admitted “Me and Kim are in the exploitation business.”
– “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” is Kanye’s favorite song.
Replay the full interview below. Scroll to the 1:07:00 and 1:14:00 marks to see Kanye freestyle. He also rapped along to “Otis” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” (1:43:00).
As Vulture points out, Kanye also spoke his mind during a concert in Las Vegas on Friday night. Though he covered usual topics like racism and classism, along with the controversy surrounding Barneys department store, the 10-minute discourse was more of an inspirational pep talk than an angry diatribe. Long story short, Kanye wants to be your life coach:
I want you to believe that you can do and be anything. Yeezus is that sonic cocaine that get a nigga hyped up. Yeezus is that espresso. Yeezus is a new type of drug… High off life. High off confidence. High off self esteem. High off believin’ that you can really live your mother fuckin’ dreams! That’s that Yeezus.
And they try to take the power away from the most powerful leaders. They try to distract you. They tryin’ to distract you from the truth and the truth is inside you. Don’t believe nothin’ you see ’cause you constantly being lied to. ‘Cause you constantly being lied to. The truth is inside you. And don’t believe nothin’ you see ’cause you constantly being lied to. The truth is inside you. The truth is inside you. The truth is inside you. The truth is inside you. The truth is inside you. The truth is inside you.
