Kanye West gave his first interview on Thursday, following the controversy surrounding his epic feud last week with Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose, which has since been settled. The rapper revealed new details surrounding the incident, and explained why he may have overreacted. Listen to the audio below!

During a Thursday phone interview with Big Boy on the radio show Real 92.3, West first explained how his reconciliation with Khalifa came to be. He said their mutual musician friend, Malik Yusef “got us on the phone. He’s very close to Wiz. He’s also very close to me. We chopped it up, squashed it.”

During their Twitter battle, Khalifa mentioned “KK,” his personal strain of marijuana known as “Khalifa Kush,” but West assumed the abbreviation was in reference to his wife Kim Kardashian. The rapper noted in his interview that this misunderstanding was the reason he brought up Rose and Khalifa’s 2-year-old son into the conversation. “I just saw my wife’s initials and reacted,” West said. “Because that’s my family.” He added, “People think because my wife’s on TV, or because she’s been in an ‘SNL’ skit… It’s open season or something. No, that’s the mother of my kids, and I’m Ye.”

West further maintained, “At the end of the day, I’m gonna hold my wife and family down.” He added, “I was happy we got it cleared up and sh*t is good now. It was great to have closure and just talk.” And finally, West confirmed the selfie that Kardashian and Rose took together is “a real picture,” noting, “They were at Kris [Jenner’s] house” when they snapped the photo.
