kanye-and-beck-1

Kanye West talked with Ryan Seacrest to talk about how he felt about Beck winning the “Album Of The Year” Grammy over Beyonce. After almost pulling the same stunt he did in 2009, Kanye stopped himself from confronting Beck as he accepted his Grammy award. West said the following:

“Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game…. I also wanted to stress to people that it’s not a black or white thing at all … We are one race. We are the human race, period.”

Kanye also mentioned that Taylor Swift, the girl who’s Grammy spotlight he stole back in 2009, approached him after the show saying she thought he was right to rush the stage in response to Beyonce’s loss. He also confirmed that the two may be working together very soon, after telling Seacrest “Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I’m down to get in the studio and work“. 

Yeezy Boosts

Kanye lastly gave some vague details about his new collaboration with Adidas for the “Yeezy Boosts”. The shoe’s release will have an accompaining fashion show, and 9,000 pairs are expected to be released. You can listen to Ryan’s entire interview with Yeezy below.
