Main thing many people are concerned about his when is he going to drop a new project? Well he even goes into his album and states that he is about 80 percent completed with it and it will be a surprise release.
Speaking on dating Amber Rose before Kim Kardashian:
“It’s very hard for a woman to wanna be with someone that’s with Amber Rose. I had to take thirty showers before I got with Kim.”
Some things Kanye states during the interview, in regards to the Yeezy Boost:
“See I didn’t want them to be limited actually, that’s something that the company did. I really want as many people to get them as possible. I don’t want to price to be $350. I don’t want to play like this sneaker culture game and all this so they be reselling this for high prices and stuff. I just want people have what I make. Like ain’t no limited release to College Dropout or limited release of Graduation.”
Hearing Beck’s album for the first time with Taylor Swift:
“The other day I went to dinner and sat down with Taylor Swift and ironically they were playing the Beck album, I was like man, this is kinda good I ain’t gonna lie [Laughs]. I hadn’t even heard it [before the rant]. I bet you the album is really good. I’m gonna listen to [it] and maybe it was potentially Album of the Year.”
Kim Kardashian posing nude in magazines:
“She could get naked if she wants to. It’s not illegal. And think about this, if Adam had never ate the apple we would all be naked.”
Working on a documentary about Minister Louis Farrakhan:
“Right now I’m working on a documentary with [that is] about him, his music — he’s a classically trained violinist — and he’s also one of the most humane people. And now, the same way that my wife was stamped with the sex tape, the minister was stamped with [bigotry], and it’s important that while he’s still alive he has the see the people appreciate his message cause if you ever hear him talk, it’s about humanity. It’s about one race. Soon as you hear his name, people’s faces change. They have this perception. It’s a lot that I can learn from him.”
On keeping quiet on the police brutality of Ferguson:
“Yeah, my dad e-mailed me and said stay out of it. Now, my dad is like a thousand percent smarter than me and a thousand times more social than me. He like literally lived at a homeless shelter and he emailed me and told me to stay out of it—that’s my only parent so I have to listen to him sometimes.
“I think he was just trying to be protective of his son. I can’t run in front of every bullet, you know. I just can’t run in front of every single bullet.”
What people can expect from his new album:
“Bars, cookout music that just feels like— my last album was a protest to music… this album is just embracing the music, embracing joy, and being of service to the people. I just hope that people like it and enjoy it.”
“I think 80%. I’m trying to get it finished, and get it to the people as soon as possible.”
If he is plotting a surprise release:
“Release dates is played out so, the surprise is going to be a surprise. There go the surprise. [Laughs]
