Kanye West talks permanent diamond teeth, Jay-Z, and being a spoiled brat!

kanyewest3 Kanye West talks permanent diamond teeth, Jay Z, and being a spoiled brat!

Kanye speaks with Vanity Fair:

LISA ROBINSON: Looking back on last year’s MTV Awards, when you interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech—you said Beyoncé was robbed, and a lot of us agreed with you. How do you feel about it now?

KANYE WEST: Well, it was very punk rock and revolutionary and idealistic and very angry in a way. But the timing was in poor taste. And the other two things I’ve learned since then are humility and empathy—to be empathetic to other people’s feelings. To care about how much this must mean to someone else, and not to think that my ideals or my righteousness are more important than someone else’s feelings.

L.R. What did you want to do with your new album?

K.W. I wanted to take it back to the essence, like the soulful people who brought knowledge—like RZA and Q-Tip. At a certain point, you need to find a better way to do it; it’s like people [in basketball] who dunk and hurt their wrist and come down on their knees too hard. Your knee’s gonna give out at a certain point. Some of my social and public-persona knees are starting to give out. I still want to run the games. I’ve just got to not get kicked up quite as hard.

L.R. You also have an entirely new, elegant look; you told me you thought that the traditional hip-hop look was tired.

K.W. Yeah, people always dress like they’re headed to the gym.

L.R. Why did you have permanent diamonds drilled into your bottom teeth?

K.W. I just like diamond teeth and I didn’t feel like having to take them out all the time.

L.R. What do you think Jay-Z has done for you?

K.W. Man, everything—served as a big brother, the blueprint, our reality. Someone to look up to.

L.R. What do you think you’ve done for him?

K.W. Just served as a burst of energy at all times—light and energy. Just a person who’s constantly seeking information that Jay can use.

L.R. You’ve had a tough time since the death of your mother, in 2007. Even though you’re always in recording studios, this past year you retreated from the spotlight. How are you these days?

K.W. Extremely happy. And you know … people obviously know I lost my mother, and it was shocking. On one hand, I never really dealt with the loss, but in not dealing with the loss, I also didn’t completely deal with the responsibilities that my mother used to take. She was such an amazing, well-rounded person, and I was a spoiled brat.

L.R. You were?

K.W. Yeah, and my mom used to balance my spoiled-bratness by just being one of the most awesome people. She was a teacher, and to be a teacher you have to care about people—you can’t just care about yourself. I just cared about myself. I thought the fact that so many people in the world—a million in the first week [of a record release]—cared about me, that that was enough, but it’s not enough. The best thing I can do now is carry on my mother’s legacy. I need to recapture the hearts of the world just to show people how great my mother was, to show people that Donda raised a good guy. My responsibility is to make music that’s progressive, that makes me happy, that makes everyone happy. My job in society isn’t to be mad. My job is to present good music.

Looking kind of slim in that picture Kanye. Is he eating these days?

Such a good look.

At least he learned his lesson. Its great he mentioned his mom because I thought he never took in reality of his mom passing away. I never heard of him shedding 1 tear but this is great. Keep it up!

He does look a lil skinny though.. lol

Oh and I guess I say “FIRST” whatever that does lol

#3 what in the hell are you talking about. Put what on her? SMH

There is something different about him. I’ve noticed it since he resurfaced. It’s some grown man shit. And I effin love it.

He’s always been a slim dude. And Black is a slimming color. And the way those pants are cut…thats probably intentional. I like it. But then I admire fashion risk takers. That’s a nice pic of him. Something different in his face to.

Kanye is a fruit of the highest caliber. C’mon wearing women’s blouses and sh*t. Any man that’s wearing womens clothing is not right in the head, and it’s far from stylish. And as far as his music goes, half if not 80% of his sh*t is sampled from old skool music. Can’t really call that original if someone else built the foundation.

I can never respect a man that starts a freestyle off …. ” I sold my soul to the devil, I know its a crappy deal, it came with a few toys like a happy meal.” , Seriously you gotta be kidding me.

I see a little hip hop history is in order for you niggas. Cause some of the shit you just typed is ignorant as fuck!!

First hip hop song ever made was a Sample of Good Times by Chic. Rappers Delight. They didn’t change shit about the beat. NOTHING just rapped over it. Nigga thats how Hip Hop was built. Since the beginning of Hip Hop Time, producers have used samples. Name one rapper who has never rapped over a sampled beat and I will give you my first born child if you can….You can’t Nigga!!…thats what Hip Hop’s foundation was built on. So why shit on Kanye cause he is continuing a Hip Hop Tradition. SMH Your favorite rapper right now probably has more than one sample on his latest record.

Secondly, you niggas need to quit hollering that devil worshiping illuminati bullshit…I can’t even begin to tell you how stupid that shit sounds coming from us. Eminem rapped about Killing his wife, did that mean he was actually going to do it? You niggas is DUMB! Beyond Dumb

It’s funny how when people attempt to “drop knowledge” or “give lessons” they speak from what they THINK to be right. Rappers Delight WAS NOT the 1st Hip-Hop song. The 1st Hip-Hop song ever RECORDED was King Tim III (Personality Jock) by the Fatback Band. It was actually released months before Rappers Delight. I guess that blows your so-called Hip-Hop lesson out the window.

As far as the Illuminati and the devil goes. You chose not to believe it if you want. But I can guarantee you it’s as real as the air you breath. But hey what do I know I’m just a dumb nigga right?

It’s called RESEARCH people try it and you might be amazed at some of the things you learn, if you pull your head out your arse and open your mind.

he has the devil in him.. DUH… about 70% of the world does that’s why its crap now….. because Y’ALL, yah i can actually say y’all now lol (got baptized), keep sinning shacking up having babies before your married, having sex before your married going off at the tongue, not going to church.. the list goes on and on…. and i don’t agree with this behavior at all, and when they say “hip hop is a lifestyle” it truly is because y’all sure make what y’all hear on the radio into a reality. Is this gonna change heeeeeckkkkk no, definitely not, because most of the time there isn’t any going back… Y’all all need help…. well MOST of y’all yah i might judge a little but like they say, i’m one step ahead of you. Do YOU know where you’ll end up tomorrow?
