In 2013, Kanye West had much-discussed interviews with Sway Calloway and Charlamagne Tha God. During West’s most recent Yeezus Tour stop in Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center, the rapper criticized the radio show hosts while discussing his 10 years as a solo artist in the music business.
“Ten years of this shit,” Kanye West said during the performance. “If I go to a radio interview, shut the fuck up. If you’re on your talk show at night showing a picture of me walking with my girlfriend, shut the fuck up…What have you done with the past 10 years of your life, Charlamagne? Sway? What did you do? Fuck these niggas names is? I am Yeezus.”
In November, Kanye West screamed at Sway Calloway during an interview. “You ain’t got the answers,” Kanye West said to Sway Calloway when the radio show host suggested that West create an independent clothing line. “You ain’t got the answers. You ain’t got the answers. You ain’t got the answers, Sway. I’ve been doing this more than you.” In December, Sway Calloway addressed the interview. “I love Kanye West,” Sway said on MTV’s “Rap Fix Live.” “That’s my little brother. If you got a chance to see the interview, it got really intense. I will admit to that. But everything Kanye said, I think is true. In fact, I believe in everything that he’s trying to do. I think we all should listen to the message that’s in everything he said in the interview.”
In November, Charlamagne Tha God referred to West as a “walking contradiction” during the rapper’s interview with New York radio station Power 105.1.
