Charlie Wilson Says He Tells Kanye West To "Sit Down & Be Quiet" Sometimes

Charlie Wilson On Kanye West: "When he does something wrong, I'm the first one to tell him that he's wrong, sit down and be quiet."

Charlie Wilson, who has collaborated with Kanye West multiple times, says he can tell West when he disagrees with the Yeezus emcee. 

"I'm not patting him on his back," Charlie Wilson says in an interview with Hip Hollywood. "When he does something wrong, I’m the first one to tell him that he’s wrong, sit down and be quiet. I don’t care if you don’t like it or not. I don’t embrace some of the things that he does, and some of the stuff he does, I do embrace, which is music. He's good at that. Sometimes it gets a little out of hand, and sometimes he just says, ‘I’m gonna do this kind of music just to inspire people.’ Okay then say that." 

Wilson appears alongside Kanye West on West's "Bound 2" off the rapper's 2013 album, Yeezus. Beyond this selection, Wilson and West collaborated on "All of the Lights," "Lost In The World" and "Who Will Survive In America" off West's 2010 album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

In February, Charlie Wilson spoke with HipHopDX about his longevity and influence. "I look back, I look at it as kind of a cool deal," Wilson said at the time. "When we was recording records as The Gap Band, I didn't have a clue that we'd be around or that we would inspire so many people. I didn't ever think that I would still be here. First of all, I didn't think I would make it this far. Let's just get that straight. I thought that I would be dead a long time ago, but God had a different plan for me."

    You represent your self, fool. Sitting in the house expecting some tv nigga to "portray you in a good light" FOH with that weak shit. You're just like the those black guys too.

    I'd personally love to watch that.

    Don't believe it, not for one second. Kanye says what Kanye wants to say, when he wants to say it and how he wants to say it. We all know that!

    Kanye can say whatever the fuck he wants.. it's called Freedom of Speech

      I have listened to the interviews, the rants etc. He wants the white man to accept him and he's throwing tantrums about it instead of building his own shit. You couldn't give me a single intelligent quote yourself but you're on here defending him, fuck outta here, sorry I made you sad about it take a kleenex nigga and go back to your room or finish sweeping. He has no one around him to tell him when he's wrong or going about things the wrong way, no one just a bunch of leeches and users, and that's worse than having a hater any day, which btw I'm not but I won't have bias view.

      Listen to the interviews yourself, dipshit. That's why there are notable rappers/moguls saying that he knows what he's talking about.

    • airYeezy

      and Kanye does say smart things if you listen to his interviews.. but the majority of people are too dumb to understand what he says

      We know that, we just want him to say something intelligent so they don't think we're all like him.
