If you think Kanye West “turned up” in his Zane Lowe interview, just wait ’til you hear this one. During his busy press run in NYC — which also saw him chat with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez and Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg — Ye sat down with Sway Calloway (y’know, the guy whose first ever TV was a gift from Mr. West) for an interview on Sway In The Morning, and it was easily his loudest one yet.
The two enjoyed a friendly chat about A Tribe Called Quest, working with Jay Z and his ideas, before Sway quizzed Kanye about his frustrations with the fashion industry and asked, “why don’t you empower yourself, and do it yourself?” Eh-err! Wrong answer, Sway. And that’s when Kanye flipped.
Kanye: How, Sway!? You ain’t got the answers, Sway! I been doing this more than you! You ain’t been doing the education! You don’t have the answers, though, because you tryna give me advice about something. You ain’t spend $13 million a year tryna empower yourself…What’s the name of yo clothing line? We don’t know… I just told you I lost the money ’cause I didn’t have the knowledge of how to do it the right way!
Sway: Okay, so you don’t have money to do it. That’s yo answer. You ain’t gotta turn up, man. This ain’t no fucking show, man.
Cooler heads eventually prevailed. But having revealed he lost $13 million trying to launch his own clothing line, it’s no surprise Kanye’s mad.
