Kanye’s a man of many words. Making his rounds in New York at the close of Fashion Week — including a surprise performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon — Kanye West went on quite the rant at an album listening session for G.O.O.D. Music artist Pusha T when he was asked to speak about his protégé’s new project.
In a speech that lasted nearly three minutes, West addressed his concerns of the moment: culture vultures, corporations, and sellouts. While taking a few jabs at “biters” of trends — individuals who sport camouflage prints and T-shirts with numbers on the back — West pulled it all together by complimenting the visions of his creative company DONDA and Pusha T for his new music and partnership with designer Virgil Abloh, for their urban fashion line Pyrex Vision.
“Everything is Pusha T. Pyrex Vision, that’s Pusha T. Fear of God, that’s Pusha T. This n—a the heart of the muthaf—ing culture for you culture vultures,” West shouted. “This the only n—a spitting that wild muthaf—ing hip-hop sh– right now, that’s why I stand next to this n—a. I don’t give a f— about none of these corporations, none of these f—ing sellouts. This muthaf—ing Pusha T. This is the f— we make. We make good music, we make good music. We don’t give a f— about how much goddamn money you make, we make good music.”
