‘You Ain’t Got the Answers, Man!’: Kanye West Explodes on Radio DJ

‘I am Shakespeare in the flesh’

Kanye West Goes Berserk on Interviewer: ‘You Ain’t Got the Answers!’ (Mediaite)

During a SiriusXM interview Tuesday morning, rapper Kanye West flipped out on interviewer Sway after being challenged on his assertions about how difficult it is for a black artist to get corporate backers willing to take a risk on his creative ideas.

West has made headlines in recent weeks for his in-concert rants about various fashion designers and companies who’ve shunned him or ignored his attempts to break into the business. According to West, major corporations like Disney, Nike, Google, etc., don’t “step up” and help finance some of his projects involving fashion, art, and technology.

Appearing on Sway’s satellite radio show, West likened himself to Shakespeare, asking if companies will “step up and be the Medici family” and patronize his ideas while he’s still at the top of his game.
