T.I. talks difference between current and old Kanye West.
T.I. recently made an appearance on The Breakfast Club as part of the 20th-anniversary celebration of his second studio album “Trap Muzik”. During the conversation, the rapper was asked about his views on current and old Kanye West.
“Kanye was cool to hear man, I ain’t even gonna cap. Kanye was — how can I say — he was more conversational. He read the room a lot better,” he said. “It feel like Ye, y’know, he got to a point where he just stopped reading the room and just gave everything everywhere, y’know what I mean?”
T.I. then reflect on Kanye playing his earlier songs before their release: “He was just so excited playing it, and I’m listening, and when I heard ‘Jesus Walks,’ I said, ‘man he gonna either do really well or extremely bad.’”
Previously, T.I. criticized Kanye West for his support to former US President Kanye West. “Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye’ & his antics,” he wrote at the time. “Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this sh-t is next level, futuristic Sambo, Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django a-s sh-t Ye!!!! From what I can gather… This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen.”
“To all the people who follow Ye musically, socially, or even personally….who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated…. Let me make this clear… THIS SH-T AINT COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! THIS IS A PLAY TO PUT HIM IN A POSITION HE’D LIKE TO SEE HIMSELF IN…WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS.”
“Don’t follow this puppet. Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world,if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr.West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop,I’m officially DONE!!!! Trump & His Lil Cookie Boy.”
