TV and radio host Sway has been at it for over 20 years. He’s interviewed more musical acts than a sane man would try to count, and he’s done it — more or less — with a smile on his face. He’s basically a really nice guy.
But that didn’t save him from Kanye West‘s wrath when Yeezus stopped by the “Sway in the Morning”.
Kanye began: “I’m standing up and I’m telling you, I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney, Nike, Google — now who’s gon’ be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more? Or do you want to marginalize me ’till I’m out of my moment?”
Sway: “Or why don’t you empower yourself and don’t need them and do it yourself?”
Boom, cue the Kanye explosion: “How Sway?! You ain’t got the answers, man. You ain’t got the answers. I’ve been doing this more than you. You ain’t spend $13 million a year of your money trying to empower yourself.
Then, when Sway brought up his own clothing line, Kanye continues: “It ain’t no Ralph [Lauren] though. What’s the name of your clothing line? WE DON’T KNOW.”
Here at at SLAMXHYPE, we fully support Kanye’s “creative genius” rants, but he’s kind of shithead for this one.
Watch above, the outburst begins 17 minutes into the video.
