It’s definitely #YeezySeason alright, but not all the tears are tears of joy.
In case you missed this interview (because let’s face it, the only ones we reeeally want to watch are the ones where he is spazzing on people), last week Kanye sat down with BBC’s Zane Lowe (the same for an intimate talk about everything under the sun from family, his signature adidas kicks, new music and of course racism.
In the interview, ‘Ye was uncharacteristically emotional, even breaking down in tears at one point when speaking about fashion professor Louise Wilson, who has recently passed. Lowe had to take an interval so that West could gather himself before continuing the interview. We would really loved to have been a fly on the wall in that studio to witness what was said/done during that break. See below
The interview wasn’t just good for waterworks. Yeezy also spoke openly about his personal frustrations/depression in the past year, saying that he has grown and seen the error in some his way. SOME. In the interview he calls Drake “the best rapper” doing it and also expands on his working relationship with Beatles legend Paul McCartney.
Everything you expect from a ‘Ye interview, minus the scared interviewer secretly reaching for the security button. You can watch the full interview below:
