Spokesman For Ex-CIA Director George Tenet Recalls Meeting With Kanye West

Kanye West wasn't lying when he said on "Clique" that he made small talk with former CIA head George Tenet.

From Jay-Z and Warren Buffett to 50 Cent and Joan Rivers, Hip Hop has managed to bring seemingly polar opposites together over the past few decades. Now, it turns out Kanye West had a chance meeting with the former director of the CIA George Tenet.

On "Clique," Yeezy raps, "Yeah, I’m talking business, we talking CIA / I’m talking George Tenet, I seen him the other day / He asked me about my Maybach, think he had the same / Except mine tinted and his might have been rented.” 

In an interview with Wired, Tenet's spokesperson Bill Harlow recalled the time ex-director encountered Mr. West. Harlow continued that the two merely bumped into each other at an event and chatted briefly, but said there was no talk of Maybachs as Kanye alluded to in the song "Clique."   

“They bumped into each other,” Harlow said. “They chatted briefly. There was no discussion of Maybach. The next thing you know, it’s recorded history. I think it’s poetic license. [Hip Hop]’s not his genre. [Tenet]’s more of a Bruce Springsteen guy.”

      2nd anonymous, the way you think is the same way racism and oppression operate- I know a lot of people who go to college but still rep the streets. It is just absurb to exclude someone from hip hop because they or their mother has an education. Kanye dropped out of college to begin with and was clear about it in his debut album, which contrary to your opinion was a decent hip hop album. I am happy you mentioned the word 'anti-establishment' maybe you need to work on your established stereotypes.

      Ok I see my comment got the elitist hip hop stans panties in a bunch. Hip hop is on some street shit, last time i checked, it was created by those lil ghetto kids ya'll love to hate but jack all ya'll swag from faggots. BTW I ain't on welfare, i got my own business, and im making money seeing the world if you wanna know what my lifes like. If you don't see how Kanye talking to CIA is NOT HIP HOP, THEN YOU AIN'T HIP HOP. HIP HOP is ANTI ESTABLISHMENT. FUCK YOUR COLLEGE EDUCATION, I CAN GET THAT AT THE LOCAL LIBRARY FOR A LATE FEE COCKSUCKER. I BET YALL SOME GROWN MEN WEARING SKINNY JEANS AND SUNGLASSES AT NIGHT THINKING YOU FRESH BECUZ KANYE THINKS ITS FRESH. THE DIFFERENCE. HE GOT MONEY,AND YOU'LL BE IN DEBT, AND ON YOUR KNEES, FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES. BOW TO THE KING FAGGOT OR EAT THE GUN.
