Kanye West Rants Against Jay-Z and Music Business
The mainstream major label rapper was giving a performance in London when he took a break to criticize his former collaborator's latest collaboration. "Remind me again who's the original super-fly? And I got love for Hov but I ain't f***ing with that 'Suit & Tie'," he said according to ASB.
He then went on to criticize the mix of business and rap with a long ranging rant which was quoted by the site. "I hate business people. People get on the phone with me and tell me, 'What kind of business can you do, though? What type of business are you doing? What's the numbers? How much did you sell? What's the radio spins? How much shampoo can you sell with your face on it and s**t?'
"Remind me again why we in this s**t. Can you remind me again why we in this s**t? Since when [is] making music about getting rich? Since when [is] making art about getting rich?... Remind me again why we in this s**t. Remind me again why the Grammys couldn't suck my d**k."
"Can I sell a drink for you please? So you can help me put on a better show. Please corporations. Can you please support me? I swear I'm a nice n**** now. I swear I'll put the pink polo back on. I swear to you. Please."
No word yet from his camp if he plans to discontinue his official online store which carries a variety of Kanye West branded merchandise.
