Kanye West has been all over the airwaves lately. With each stop on hisYeezus Tour, West has stopped by local radio giving in-depth and passionate interviews about his music and hunger to do more in the fashion world. He touched on all of those things — and more — during his interview with MTV News’ Sway Calloway on Tuesday (November 26). But things got a lot more heated.
The “Sway in the Morning” interview, broadcast live on SiriusXM’s Shade 45, started off with ‘Ye talking about his creative aspirations in both music and fashion. But after Sway asked about Yeezy’s need for corporate support, things took a sudden turn.
“Why don’t you empower yourself and don’t need them and do it yourself?” Sway asked.
“How Sway?” Kanye barked. “You ain’t got the answers, man; you ain’t got the answers. I’ve been doing this more than you; you ain’t got the answers.”
Tell us how you really feel Kanye! Before you go back to the “N*ggas in Paris” work on your freestyle skills. We are sure Pusha T would lend you a helping hand.
Hip-hop music was built off of competition and Kendrick Lamar gave fans and artists alike a reminder of what it is like to take rap’s battlefield.
On Monday night, Big Sean dropped “Control,” a leftover track originally recorded for his upcoming Hall of Fame, and it featured Jay Electronica and a fiery verse from K-Dot. After proclaiming himself the king of New York (and the west coast) Kendrick name-dropped a gang of his rap friends, but he wasn’t so nice about it.
“I’m usually homeboys with the same n—-s i’m rhymin with/ But this is hip-hop and them n—-s should know what time it is/ And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale/ Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake/ Big Sean, Jay Electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller/ I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you n—-s/ Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you n—-s/ They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you n—as,” the Black Hippy MC rapped with an extra grit to his already gravelly voice.

It’s been almost 7 years since Cassie released her self-titled debut album. Her new mixtape, RockAByeBaby comes as a gift to her supporters.

G.O.O.D. Music is in building. Kanye West drops the top on the video for “Mercy” featuring Big Sean, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz, the first single off the upcoming Cruel Summer compilation. The slick, yet simplistic black-and-white clip was filmed in an underground parking garage, with each member of G.O.O.D. Music color coordinated in black. With a Lamborghini Murciélago in the background, the four rappers mean mug for the camera, with cameos from the rest of the family including Kid Cudi and Teyana Taylor. Swerve!
