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.

    We are truly living in the age of Idiocracy when a total idiot like this is celebrated by his fellow idiots as a genius.

                      Idc how much money he got. This dude is straight dumb. I really dont know how kanye has any fans. His music is trash for over 10 years and has sounded like a complete NUT for over 10 as well. If you like this fool as a person I would recommend getting mental help

                                It's not surprising that Kanye West supports Donald Trump. They're both the losers.

                                    First came out in 2016 Kanye West ideas and his point of view was new to me but i kinda understood were he was coming from. He is better at creating than explaining. but now it's 2019 and looking back it all so much clearer Kanye West was ahead of his time

                                              Kanye, my hat is off to you for being calm and mature. CTG has gotten on my nerves in this interview. He just don't understand and when you don't understand you need to stop talking...Ugh!

                                                  This interview sounds really bad in 2019 😬 sounds like Envy and Charla were trying to tell him to stay in a box, that he's thinking too big, and to settle for less. Ye is saying he wants to help everyone and cause systematic change, Charla and Envy is telling him to think about himself and his family. That things are good enough. Not saying Ye ain't a lil crazy but...

                                                    Long story short - Ye is saying in order to beat Goliath - you have to become a Goliath too. Charlemagne was saying, but David beat Goliath though. Kanye kept on talking as if he’s already Goliath, so Charlemagne was tryna bring him down to Earth like, “Naw, bruh. You’re aspiring to become Goliath. However, we the people love you as David.” Kanye’s rebuttal is, “Agree to disagree.”

                                                    Honestly, I can understand both perspectives.

                                                    Furthermore, even when Charlemagne said, “Why don’t you do it on your own?” - without a Big Corp (backdoor endorser of the 13th Amendment) - He was saying, “Fine, Ye, then become the People’s Goliath.”

                                                      Kanye was in fact 10 years ahead of his time

                                                        Working in the corporate world regarding mergers and acquisitions I must say Kanye knows of the gatekeepers of every industry. They make it harder for new brands and businesses to arise through political legislations. So he is correct that the few billionaires do control all industries like coal fashion etc.
                                                        I can tell these interviewers are very uneducated.
