Kanye had another Yeezus tour show Sunday night — so you know another rant took place.
In a strange turn of events, rocker Lenny Kravitz was the subject of the rant as Kanye went on about fashion, Paris, and of course geniuses.
“It’s so funny when people compliment me and they say the word ‘genius’ as if that somehow separates me from other rappers in some way…I need you all to realize that Jay Z is a genius, and Drake is a genius…we are the modern day poets, obviously.”
“There wouldn’t be no song called ‘N****s in Paris’ without Lenny Kravitz, because he was the first n**** in Paris. Lenny has the best taste and the dopest crib in Paris …he designs furniture and he had been working on a clothing line for a long time … I said, ‘Wait a second, I’ve got a dream of doing a clothing line.’ You know what the billionaires told me while I was in Paris? They said Lenny wanted the same thing, like it was a joke.?.?. There wouldn’t be no Kanye West if it wasn’t for Lenny Kravitz. The only difference is I turn up on those n****s, I don’t give a [bleep] about looking cool or being cool, and this is no disrespect to Lenny.”
The NY Post reports Lenny was embarrassed by Kanye’s words:
While an embarrassed Kravitz was heard saying, “He doesn’t know I’m here,” Kanye continued, “Have you heard anyone talk [bleep] about Lenny Kravitz? He’s a nice guy, he’s so well mannered. I envy people who are extremely likeable, I’m like, ‘Damn, I wish I could be likable like that.’ ”
Luckily he didn’t say anything negative about Lenny…
