Video: Kanye Interview w/ Matt Lauer on The Today Show

Here’s the full interview that Kanye spazzed over. So now that I’m watching this, while I still think Kanye might have overreacted, I can somewhat understand why he was mad. Lauer was all “look at his face” (Bush’s) and what not. What is that? I guess you could say that he was just trying to get a more emotional response from an interview subject, but that was weird. At the end of the clip, Lauer directly addresses the Twitter tirade and plays the portion of the interview that Yeezy was really pissed about. #Awkwardmoments.

On another note, this Kanye album is fucking crazy.

    That’s what I’m sayin. Niggas worried about his blouse collection, but he still got that heat. LOL

  29. Jersey*made*me Says:

    I do find out a little odd that they didn’t play the George Bush doen’t care about black people clip,yet they showed a still shot of him taking the mic from the snowbunny,then they play the video as if the still photo wasn’t enough reference to the incident.

    It’s like they wanted to drive home the King Kong scaring the little white lady image.

  30. JDS just looks at her, looks at her... Says:

    I will say this though…

    Power >>>>>>>

    I was unimpressed with that song when it debuted in the summer, but that really is the centerpiece of the album. Be walking around the crib feeling like a lion listening to that shit lol

    Plus its the only other song besides Dark Fantasy, DIAND, & Blame Game that keeps my attention throughout.

  31. salvia_blunts Says:

    anybody ever listen to that rant at the end of TI’s “Ready For Whatever” since he got knocked again…and just laugh?

    no, no you’re not.

  32. Dewill Says:

    These white folks be tryin to make us look crazy as hell on tv… That dude know he was playin that old footage loud as hell while Kanye was tryin to speak about the situation… Then wanna shake they head like he’s a mischievous little monkey and shit…

    what kanye wanted to say was:

    “i shouldnt have said that shit on national tv but i was pissed”

    Awhile back some video footage surfaced of Kanye working on a beat that sampled a song from some Broadway play … i never got to see that vid b/c it was taken down before i could watch it…

    but for those who did, did that beat make the album ? just curious
