Kanye West Says Farrakhan Told Him Not To Apologize


(AllHipHop News) Kanye West seemingly threw some shade towards Jay Z, Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jordan, as he discussed a conversation with Minister Louis Farrakhan.

In new concert footage, Kanye says that he spoke with Farrakhan and was told that he should not apologize about comments he made about Jewish people.

“When I talked to Farrakhan the other night, he told me not to apologize. I ain’t finna apologize,” he said from a concert. “What I wanna tell y’all is that, uh, I’m not like Jay Z. That’s my big brother. I look up to him. And I’m not like Oprah. That’s my big sister. And I’m not like Michael Jordan.”

Exactly what Kanye was trying to say is unknown, even though contextually, it doesn’t sound flattering.

The comments come on the heels of Kanye West stating that “Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people.” in an interview. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) chided the comments and called them “classic anti-Semitism.”

The concert footage is below.

The original video is below, of Minister Farrakhan defending Kanye West.

    No he didn’t.

    some of what kanye said makes sense and he should never apologize for saying what he believes is true but he also should know that talking about these/ those powerful people will keep him from ever getting into those Fashion deals & situations he’s been ranting so much about.

    Kanye didn’t throw shade at them. He was just explaining that he’s not them. He’s not the ‘go along to get along’ stay quiet and don’t disturb the waters type dude. That’s why he prefaced his comments by saying that those are his brothers and sister

      The journalist knew that….but they are too damn “click hungry” to state it

  • Oknas

    Kanye is talking about conformity.

    Wow, everyday I wake up Ye be on more BS. Now he’s with the leader of the beanpie bow tie mafia. Guess Kaye the genius didn’t read any Malcolm X books so Malcolm could of saved him from all this. Does Ye know the white woman used to be off limits until the bean pie mafia deemed it bad for their business.

    Whether you like Kanye or not, he is a champion for the people without the voice or the courage to say what they really want to say. I applaud him for standing up to “the powers that be”.

    • Malik

      Kanye aint championing nothing, don’t get too carried away.

      All this rant is as a result of LV not allowing him further his career as a fashionista under its watch. It aint got nothing to do with you or me.

      At the end of the day he apologized to George Bush but what he said back then was legit like what he’s saying now.

      So give it a while, he will apologize for this comment too.

      • You Know

        Lets see how far they go to blackball Kanye LOL

  • All black men are rapists

    i dont see how his comment was disrespectful to jews.its not like he was lying.everybody knows jews stick together.and those gooks and chinks are tight as well.blacks will never be as tight as other races because of the willie lynch programming that has been in place for hundreds of years.

    if you read between the lines, he’s saying those are the blacks with jewish connections and they have or will apologize for their remarks if they get out of pocket but hes not them. peace

    • DollasTX

      nah fam that aint waht he’s saying cuz kanye got jewish connections too … he’s simply saying … I AINT ABOUT TO WALK AROUND HERE AND JUST NOT SAY NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING

      one more fact … BLACK PEOPLE CAN NOT BE ANTI-SEMITIC – the so-called TRUE JEWS are of black decent not the ashkenazi’s that you reference

      • drac215

        Jesus let us know that origin and none of that matters bro, so all that race stuff is garbage. God is everyman but everyman is not of God. We have choices and I choose to be a child of God. If kanye really wrote Jesus walks and believed the song truly, we wouldnt be having this conversation right now bro. Remeber the first shall be last and the last shall be first, if you understood this you wouldnt be bigging up any race. peace

      • Behonest

        Only imporant post in here. Rest of this shit is dumb, get out of here with that bullshit. You know Jesus aint a racist, i dont get how people take away hateful messages from his teachings. You aint reading right man.

      • DollasTX

        YOU WENT SOMEWHERE ELSE WITH THAT …

      • You Know

        Kanye is manipulating the jews in charge, & they hate it
