The correspondent asked West whether "he went a little bit hard on Wiz this morning."
"I said what I had to say," Yeezy replied. "I said what I had to say. I ain’t saying nothing else. I told you I said all I had to say. Don’t ask me no more questions about it."
But before the conversation ended, West asked the correspondent his name and said, "Charlie, man. Good meeting you. I didn’t mean to talk to you heavy. A show of respect to you and your family—to all y’all."

Kanye West slammed Wiz Khalifa on Twitter today (January 27) after the Pittsburgh rapper questioned the new title for West's forthcoming album. West changed the title from SWISH to WAVES and Wiz Khalifa found it disrespectful to Max B.
"Oh niggas must think I’m not petty cause I’m the best that’s ever made music," West writes in a series of posts. "Like, oh that’s Ye and I can put his wife’s initials on my twitter @Wizkhalifa."
Wiz Khalifa responded, saying that the reason he wrote a post saying, "hit this KK and become yourself" has nothing to do with Kim Kardashian, West's wife.
"KK is weed fool," the Pittsburgh rapper, who is known for rapping about marijuana, writes in a series of posts. "Reason's why your not wavy. Go bacc to Swish.I been smashed the idea of that album even existing. I got joints to roll @kanyewest."
West creates a list of 17 reasons that Khalifa should not have questioned him.
"Bro first of all you stole your whole shit from Cudi," West writes, referencing his frequent collaborator and former G.O.O.D. Music artist Kid Cudi. "Second, your first single was corny as fuck and most there after."
West then posts a meme of Kardashian crying with the the title of Wiz Khalifa's "Work Hard Play Hard" song and comments on the skinny jeans Khalifa is wearing in his profile picture before continuing the list.
"3rd no one I know has ever listened to one of your albums all the way through," West writes and then blasts Khalifa for having a child with Amber Rose, West's ex-girlfirend. "4th you let a stripper trap you. 5th I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years. 6th don’t ever come out the side of your neck at me. 7th I am your OG and I will be respected as such. 8th I made it so we could wear tight jeans. 9th me and Cudi created this shit. 10th don’t you ever in your fucking life speak sideways about a nigga that’s fighting for us I do this for all of us. 11th I showed you respect as a man when I met you. 12th You wouldn’t have a child if it wasn’t for me. 13th You own waves???? I own your child!!!! 14th Nigga it’s called creativity #youshouldtryitsomeday. 15th Nigga I tried to call you and you changed your number. 16th don’t even hint at mentioning me my family or my wife I am your OG. 17th I think you dress cool I wish I was skinny and tall."
After the list, West expresses a sense of appreciation for Khalifa bringing more attention to the forthcoming album.
"Thank you for the extra promotion #WAVES available February 11th."

Kanye West changed his album title from SWISH to WAVES last night (January 26).
Wiz Khalifa took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the new name.
"Please don't take the wave," the Pittsburgh rapper writes in a series of posts. "Max B is the wavy one. He created the wave. There is no wave without him."
Max B's style is known as "wavy." Wiz Khalifa shares a few videos of Max B's songs and explains the Harlem, New York rapper's influence on his own career.
"He's the reason I sing on all my songs," he says. "That's the wave. If theres nothing wit that sound ITS NOT WAVY."
Kanye West acknowledged industry executive Andre Harrell and Max B's influence on the project. Harrell founded Uptown Records and has served as a mentor to Puff Daddy.
"All respect to Andre Harrel and Max B #Waves," he says.
"Yea aight," Khalifa says, quoting West's post.
Max B was convicted of murder conspiracy and robbery charges in 2009 and is serving a 75-year prison sentence.
