“You ain’t got the answers Sway!!!”
After Kanye West basically had his a-s-s handed to him, courtesy of Charlamagne that God from the “Breakfast Club” Tuesday morning (Nov 26), he was probably feeling some type of way, and it seems like he took his anger out on DJ Sway Calloway in a subsequent radio interview on Sway’s Sirius XM show “Sway in the Morning.”
Here’s what happened (at the 17-minute mark in the video below) when the rapper started to explain his troubled relationship with Nike and other powerhouses in the fashion world, whom he thinks won’t give him a chance:
Kanye: “I am Warhol. I am the No. 1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now, who’s going to be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more? Or do you want to marginalize me?”
Sway: “Or, why don’t you empower yourself and don’t need them and do it yourself?”
Kanye: “HOW SWAY?!
Sway: “Take a few steps back –”
Kanye: “YOU AIN’T GOT THE ANSWERS, MAN!”
Sway: “Kanye –”
Kanye: “I been doing this more than you!”
Sway: “Come on chill out, bro! Kanye, relax.”

What you just read there was Kanye West going OFF on one of Hip Hop’s most respected DJs, for really no reason at all.
“Yeezus” eventually calmed down though and apologized, after Sway made him realize the error of his ways, reminding West that he would still ask the same questions with or without the microphones, because they go “way back” like that.
If you’ve got 30 minutes to kill, the entire interview is definitely worth a watch. CHECK IT OUT UP TOP!
