Kanye West Sits Down with Charlamagne Tha God for 2-Hour Interview

blame it on Shake May 1, 2018

Ever since he escaped the Sunken Place and reactivated his Twitter account last month, Kanye West has taken his fans (and detractors) on an emotional rollercoaster.

From the promise of new music—including a solo project, a joint effort with KiD CuDi, and Ye-produced albums from Nas, Pusha T, and Teyana Taylor—to insane cosigns of right-wing pundit Candace Owens and expressing his love for Donald Trump. He even trolled us with a bullshit song (“Lift Yourself“), before attempting to explain his missteps on “Ye vs The People,” with T.I. playing the part of The People.

At some point during the barrage of Twitter updates, Kanye sat down with Charlamagne Tha God at his Calabasas home for a quick nearly two-hour interview that touched on everything from mental health and family to his musical career and relationships with Jay-Z and Barack Obama.

“There will be mistakes, there will be flaws in the way I communicate. Because we’re human beings, we’re flawed,” he says. “I’m not media trained. I’m not studied in that. I’m not trying to say the right thing. I’m just trying to say exactly what I feel out of love.”

If you’ve got about two hours to spare, press play on the interview below. If you can’t watch the embed, thanks to stupid rules, you can view it on Ye’s new site, WeGotLove.

As a bonus, Kanye also shared a behind-the-scenes clip of him and T.I. talking about their recent collaboration.
