Kanye West: Media Tries to “Make Me Look Like Maniac” Because They’re “Afraid of Interracial Relationships” — SEE VIDEO
Kanye West blasted the media on Saturday, accusing outlets of letting racial prejudice guide their coverage.
The rapper’s latest rant took place as he wore a full face mask at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, where he demanded respect for being a “genuine creator in 2014.”
“Every media outlet, I don’t care who you are — TMZ, E!, Barbara Walters — don’t play yourself. Respect it as such,” exclaimed West. “’SNL,’ all you writers, Lorne Michaels. Respect it as such.”
“Cause when we standing face to face, you know who you’re looking at,” said the performer, going on to compare himself to everyone from Miles Davis to Prince to Missy Elliot.
“This ain’t no mother*cking spoof, so play this sh*t back at your motherf*cking meetings when you’re writing your jokes,” he continued. “Play this sh*t back when you’re writing your headlines for your tabloids.”
And then he got to the big point.
West said, “Write that mother*cking headline when you try to make me look like a maniac or an animal, because you afraid of interracial relationships, because you afraid of the future, because you afraid of a rapper that was raised by two educated parents.”
He then added, “Don’t think that I’m upset, because I’m actually very, very happy.”
The full speech also touched on corporate greed, his enemies, and his love for his competitors like Drake.
