The Breakfast Club Classic - Kanye West Interview 2013

  • Published: 23 November 2016
  • In this now classic 2013 interview Kanye West stopped by the Breakfast Club to be grilled by Charlamagne Tha God. As much as DJ Envy and Angela Yee tried to keep the interview on it's tracks Charalamagne just kept getting under Kanye's skin. He started things off by welcoming him as Kanye Kardashian. He also told him he hated Yeesuz and that he is very contradictory.

    Watch the interview for some classic quotes, his relationship with the paparazzi, Kim Karadashian being more relevant that Michelle Obama, how Yeesuz was received and much more.

          What’s crazy is how accurate he was back then. But everyone was looking at him like he was crazy. This definitely makes me think.

                                  Also Kanye West , ",DID NOT " you sell your soul to Satan and participate in santanic demonic rituals for fame and wealth, photograph countless times wearing that Hideous Demonic Unclean Evil Baphomet T-shirt.

                                    Charlemagne is blinded or he is intentionally working against what Kanye is saying about money and corporations. I donot agree with 100% of what he is saying however concerning money and how the corporations runs the game , i am 100% in agreement with what he is saying.

                                            Looking back on this interview, if Kanye articulated it better and didn’t sound like he was rambling it would’ve been received way better. I get it now. He was on to something. He killed this interview .

Charla said MLK and X didnt need money to change the world, but kanye is a artist in a producer type of way. Like steve jobs and disney he want to produce things to the world to make a change which he is doing now. Side note kanye should marginalized himself and keep produce art and etc but stfu lol
