Kanye’s Interview in Spin Magazine

Kanye West's Feature in SPIN Magazine

The interview is up and Kanye is dropping some serious knowledge:

You think Graduation is blacker than The College Dropout? Way blacker. “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” — how hood is that record? “Good Life” is straight Steve Harvey, all day long. “Flashing Lights”? I never had a record that was that black. But it’s white at the same time. Certain things are so good it doesn’t have to be white or black. That’s what Graduation is. Take “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.” It’s a white sample, but everything I do to it is to make it as black as possible. So I’ma make the bass as black as possible; I’ma make the lyrics as intense as possible.

Are these choices strictly artistic, or are you thinking as a marketer, too? Can you separate those roles? I can’t. I’m a pop enigma. I live and breathe every element in life. I rock a bespoke suit and I go to Harold’s for fried chicken. It’s all these things at once, because, as a tastemaker, I find the best of everything. There’s certain things that black people are the best at and certain things that white people are the best at. Whatever we as black people are the best at, I’ma go get that. Like, on Christmas I don’t want any food that tastes white. And when I go to purchase a house, I don’t want my credit to look black. [Laughs]

But I prefer the term African-American Express.

The 2008 Grammy nominations will have been announced by the time this story comes out. What would you like to have happen this year? Um, I want to have the most nominations of all time? I was always the kid who, when asked how much money do you want, said, “Thirty trillion dollars!” […]

Who do you think your Album of the Year competition is? That’s what I’m saying: There is no competition! [Laughs]

    drinking alot of beer is pointless, unless I’m at a sporting event and that’s all available. it’s a waste of time and money. Plus I can’t have no decent convo with a broad in the club cuz I’m runnin to go piss every few minutes.

    Brews are only good for having something to hold in your hand in the club after you’ve gotten drunk off the pint of henny you went half on and smashed in the car before walking in.

    awwh shit, nation going in…

  61. I Fux Says:

    It must be good to be an NBA Player. MediaTakeOut.com learned that on Tuesday night, the Orlando Magic’s Rashard Lewis bought out the bar at popular Houston nightclub The Office.

    That’s right guys, he bought each and every drink for the 300+ people at the club – for the entire night. According to one of MediaTakeOut.com’s spies at the event, people in the club were popping bottles of champagne like it was nothing. And word is the night’s tab came out to a whopping $50,000.

    Shoot, Rashad should be glad that we weren’t there. We’d have ordered about 12 bottles of Chrissy, stuffed ’em in our purse – and kept it moving…

  62. Big Homie Says:

    Damn fux that Lauren London post. Ooooh man. And that pic you used. She is definitely wifey.

    How do you find your samples — for example, the sample of Steely Dan’s “Kid Charlemagne” on “Champion”? One of my producers, Brian “All Day” Miller, made that track.

    word.
    i grew up in an all black neighborhood, went to all black schools, and then went to UH, which, is the 2nd most diverse college in the nation (thanks orientation lol), but it still has white people, which was a big shock for me.
