Samsung Galaxy Presents JAY Z and Kanye West At SXSW

Has the dad life made Kanye West a different dude?

In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, ‘Ye conceded that last year’s Grammy interruption – in which he stated that Best Album winner Beck didn’t “respect artistry” – was a mistake.

From Billboard:

“I’m fine to apologize for inaccuracies,” West says. “You know, I send flowers for inaccuracies. I talked to Beck’s wife, and I think I had a point about Beyonce’s album, but I think I was inaccurate with the concept of a gentleman who plays 14 instruments not respecting artistry.”

Yeezus bestowed his apology upon Beck back in February with this tweet:

Meanwhile, Yeezy channeled his penchant for being outspoken in a more constructive way this past weekend at Hot 107.9’s annual Birthday Bash event in Atlanta.

From MTV:

’Ye recently admitted that he made a conscious decision to not speak out about the death of Michael Brown, after fielding so much criticism for his past remarks, but he couldn’t stay mum this time.

On Saturday he delivered a very passionate and explicit freestyle where he addressed the issue of racism in the United States.

“See that’s the magic of racism, it works on itself/ We hate each other, screw each other, kill each other when we can’t kill nobody else,” he rapped. “See that’s the magic of lackin’ resources, it works on itself/ 500 n—as gettin’ pop-pop-pop-pop-pop-pop-popped/ And North Carolina didn’t help/ See that’s the magic of racism, it works on itself.”

Unfortunately he messed up the placement of Charleston, but the intent was there.

It’s always great to hear new verses and concepts from Kanye. Where’s that new album at, doe?
