Kanye West Defends Drake in New Jersey

blame it on JES7 February 16, 2014

During the Newark, New Jersey pit-stop of the second-leg of his Yeezus tour, ‘Ye laid out yet another epic rant, following one he had made while in Pennsylvania. However, in this rant, Yeezy brought up the topic of the latest Rolling Stone “fuckery,” defending Drake and saying that the media is trying to pit artists against each other.

Those magazines keep trying to put niggas against each other. We love Drake, we ain’t letting that shit happen no more.

The rant also included Nike/adidas talk, words about the Air Yeezy 2 “Red Octobers,” his thoughts on Macklemore making a clean sweep at the GRAMMYs and more.

Macklemore knows what it is, he tried, he made some good music, he’s a good kid, but y’all know what it is. Giving me two nominations is like giving a waiter a two dollar tip. Macklemore know what it is.

In other Kanye news, Hudson Mohawke played an alternate version of “Bound 2” (which many are calling “Bound 1”) during a recent show in the UK.
