Audio: Kanye Calls Ryan Seacrest

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015


Kanye called into Ryan Seacrest’s show earlier this morning and touched on a number of active Kanye stories, including his faux-stage rush at the Grammys, his comments about Beck’s win and his upcoming Yeezy Boost release with adidas.

Here he is on his comments about Beck respecting artistry:

And when I said that thing about respect artistry, I think it came off the wrong way, and that was a mis-wording on my part because obviously Beck is one the most respected artists and respects artistry. But I felt — and this is my opinion and he’s his own man and he’s not wrong and we’ll still go play basketball and stuff [unless] he doesn’t want to do it — but I felt that even though the Grammys some times gives awards to people who you wouldn’t think should win in the category, as a respect to artists, we mention the other artist’s name in our speech. And that was the point I was making about it.

He also says he’s willing to work with Taylor Swift in the future and reveals that he is executive producing Rihanna’s new album. About the Yeezy release, he says that only 9000 pairs will drop this coming release weekend, but he promises that everybody will have a chance to buy the shoe in the near future.

Cipha Sounds Leaves Hot 97

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015


After 17 years, Ciph decides to leave Hot 97.

Official statement below:

Effective immediately, Cipha Sounds is no longer with WQHT HOT 97 FM. Cipha Sounds said, “After 17 years, I’m leaving Hot 97. I’m changing my relationship status from ‘it’s complicated’ to ‘single’. It’s been an amazing ride – from intern to weekends to morning show host to fill Angie’s seat in afternoons. Many years of incredible, life-changing experiences and enough amazing memories to last five lifetimes. The next move is already underway and I promise it’s going to be huge.”

Best wishes to the homie Ciph but I think he’ll be ok. I still need my “weekly” Juan Epstein fix from him & Peter though.
