Kanye West talks about the profanity & profundity in his lyrics in a recent interview, before being impressed with his own statement.
Kanye West recently declared at the Toronto stop of his "Yeezus" that he would stop talking shit for six months, “You’re just gonna have to run back the interviews and shit if you wanna hear some realness," 'Ye said on stage. We'll have to wait and see how this pans out, but in a recent interview for the Rickey Smiley Show Kanye was relatively low-key when it comes to shit-talking.
Kanye seemed to be in very good spirits when the Ricky Smiley crew shot him a series of "This or That" questions. Following which, Kanye shared a few words on his lyrical ability and his affinity for cursing.
"[My lyrics] are already studied with a magnifying glass," Kanye said, before adding, "I don't think there's a person who dissects their lyrics more than me."
"This is a mission that I'm on," West explained, referring to Yeezus. "I was on 'Ellen,' and she was like 'It's cursin' here.' I think it's more profane to have an album with no profanity that's not talkin' about nothin' than to be as profound with profanity."
After making the statement, 'Ye was impressed by his own alliteration. "I mean, it was cold because it was an alliteration also. The p-r-o and then the f and everything. It was too cold. Too fresh," Yeezy stated.
