Kanye West Speaks On Confederate Flag, Fashion & President Obama Calling Him A “Jacka**”

(AllHipHop News) Kanye West always has a lot to say about pretty much everything, and the Yeezus rapper shared his thoughts about a wide range of topics on Philly’s HOT 107.9 Morning Show with Shamara and Laiya recently.

On fashion:

I got the opportunity to create with Louis Vuitton and they only let it happen one time because it was the biggest boom. Everyone wanted those sneakers, and it was almost the moment when I got to sip the clean water for one time… I had ideas of running up in the Louis Vuitton store and knocking sh*t over cause they weren’t recognizing my ability to create and my connection with real people. They just let me do one shoe and said “you can’t do it again” and I said “no, I’m bout to turn up like Neo from the [Matrix] and ya’ll need to understand what’s about to happen here.” So when I did “New Slaves” I put my face on all these stores- these luxury brands throughout the world.

On his father:

My dad was always running up on stage and grabbing mics. My dad was definitely the dad who said “you understand when you play pool why the white ball hits the 8 ball,” but really he is psych major who is a Christian marriage counselor.

On wearing the Confederate flag:

You don’t ever know what I’m trying to do. Black people stopping other black people from getting checks. What black people don’t know is that racism is something that white people don’t even have to do anymore because we hate each other more than white people hate us. It’s like a real estate on racism- it works on itself. People got bills. Don’t nobody care about the Confederate flag on that type of level.

On being called a “jacka**” by President Barack Obama:

Just say you hate Kanye and there’s gonna be 30 other people who say they hate Kanye and that was kinda my position in culture and he kinda used that too “oh he’s a jackass” cause that’s how the world felt, but I don’t care if someone’s the President or not. I care about thoughts and how you’re helping people and what you bring to the world. My music brings joy to people. What I create brings joy to people… I think he shouldn’t mention my babymomma’s name because we both from Chicago. But no, I’m not gonna mention him no more I’m passed that. That’s out my thoughts. That’s lowering my priority of thinking at this point.
