Kanye West has been a busy guy in the studio, spending time with his family and preparing for the arrival of baby number 2, but he still made time yesterday to hop on the phone with Ebro and Nessa at Hot 97 to clear up a few rumors!
While word on the street was that Kanye kicked some kids out of Chuck E. Cheese, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper laughed when responding to that one, adding that he hadn’t even been in a Chuck E. Cheese in quite some time. “I mean, you saw evidence of where we go! We rent out the whole stadium!”
After talking about his creative process and the zone that he’s in, he addressed the criticizers of his daughter North West‘s name:
“Y’all be calling my daughter’s name weird, like her name should be like some name that you’ve heard before. I don’t like to say weird when something is innovative and fresh. I hate that fact that creatives are put down so much and put in the position where they can’t even speak out loud. That’s the reason why the world be ugly. It’s millions of beautiful colors in the world, but the world is only controlled by one color. I fight for the people who see those colors, who understand it. And I’ll take the hit.”
On who he’s got in the Finals:
“I’m not taking sides. I’m from Chicago. I’m good friends with LeBron. I would like to be really great friends with Steph. I think he would be an awesome Yeezy athlete. I think he need to get rid of them Under Armours right quick. The world would love to see Steph in some Yeezys.”
When he and Kim will announce the baby’s name:
“Uh, not on this conversation!”
