Video: Kanye West is Interviewed for SHOWstudio

posted by Oscar October 6, 2015

Kanye West sat down for a rare, in-depth interview with SHOWstudio in which he’s asked questions from fans, peers, and friends.

In this sit-down we get a bunch of dope answers to all things Yeezy, and we get a great look into the mind of this enigmatic artist. Perhaps the best tidbit (or at least most newsworthy part for fans) from this interview is hearing from Kanye himself saying he thought Yeezus and 808s & Heartbreak were better than My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I think he’s got these backwards, but to each their own (and I know better not to start a debate with Kanye).

See that interview above.

Kanye West Free-Styles on ‘Power 106’

posted by Oscar October 28, 2013

Kanye went on Los Angeles’ Power 106 to appear on Big Boy’s show. Not only did he open up about his wedding, thinking Tupac is the best rapper ever (and wanting to be fashion’s version of ‘Pac), his favorite song, and being open to the possibility of releasing Yeezus outtakes, but he also did a free-style.

Yeezy initially was reluctant and says “I don’t know man, I haven’t freestyled in a long time…” but then he goes off and shows he’s still able work from the top of his head. Click on the image and skip to 1:09:30 to see it.
