Kanye West the man who criticized black men for turning to white women after becoming successful on his 2005 “Gold Digger” single and then embracing the fame whore non-talented Kardashian Klan and most recently selling overpriced t-shirts on his utterly ridiculous APC clothing line. West has decided he should be the one to call out money-hungry corporations and ‘sell-outs’. Read the story from The Huffington Post below.
Pusha-T was the guest of honor at his “My Name Is My Name” album listening party Wednesday night in Brooklyn, but all eyes were on the man standing next to him: Kanye West.
After asking the DJ to wait before starting the next track, West got on the mic and delivered one of his fiercest rants to date, expressing his support for Pusha-T by ripping some of the usual suspects (“corporations”) and taking aim at some new supposed trend biters (people who wear camouflage prints, people who “put numbers on the back of their t-shirts”).
West admitted he was “a little off that [Grey] Goose right now” and warned attendees he “might get a little loose right now.” The rapper delivered a spirited defense of Pusha-T’s credibility, which is unsurprising given Pusha’s position within the G.O.O.D. Music camp as the pulse of what’s bubbling up in the hip-hop underground. West’s speech was, however, undoubtedly a distraction and defined the media narrative surrounding the night. (An Instagram photo posted earlier Wednesday teased a “KW” appearance, and it was pretty much a wrap after that.)
The place was packed and cops had swarmed the building. Rumor has it that even 2 Chainz and Pharrell Williams couldn’t get in. VIdeo of West’s rant and a full transcription were posted immediately after the event by Miss Infos Mikey Fresh.
