Kanye West called into HOT 97 today and spoke on some things.
Kanye West called into HOT 97 today and spoke to their on-air personality Nessa about a few things. We don't have audio from their phone call just yet, but HOT 97 has tweeted out some of the highlights as have some listeners. We'll update this page with the audio when they release it.
During the phone call, Ye shuts down a rumor that he threw people out of Chuck-E-Cheese, and says he's never even been inside one. Unrelated, but he also apparently said this golden quote: "I'm completely boring. All I do is go to the studio everyday. I'm ridin' through the 'burbs with no woes."
Another highlight, although we don't have a direct quote, is that Kanye hinted that we could expect new music (from SWISH?) to celebrate North West's birthday-- which is June 15th.
We'll keep you posted.
Edit: Audio has arrived. Listen to the full convo below.
"I've been doing a lot of features and everything, and right now I just wanna take some time to really focus on my album, focus on this next collection, focus on North's birthday, just focus on my family, and then re-charge and energzie and then bring something of value," Kanye says. Not sure if that really means we'll receive new music for North's birthday, that may have been misconstrued by listeners, but it does mean he's hard at work on SWISH. Nonetheless we can always hope!
He also says of SWISH: "Work on it slowly, make it a art project, deliver the innovation that I know I can and that I’ve consistently done since 808s and Dark Fantasy."
