Kanye Promises To End Rants in 2014
Will we hear less of Kanye West’s infamous rants in the new year?
Mr. West announced his new years resolution is to go at least six months without being negative or complaining about anyone – which he has had a lot of practice doing in 2013. While in Toronto for one of his last ‘Yeezus’ tour stops, the rapper went on a nearly 30 minute rant (yes, 30 minutes) to proclaim it would be his last for some time.
“I just really feel like I want to be expressive with my work, with my music. I want to be expressive with this opportunity I have with Adidas, and just go home to my family,” he told the crowd. “I decided to completely focus everything in 2014 on all the new ideas and all the creative outlets.”
As for his rivalry with Nike, the rapper says he’s done taking shots. “I’m not [going to] ever bring up Nike again. And the only way I’ll bring them up is in a positive light. Because I actually appreciate the opportunity to have been able to make my own shoe with them, and if I didn’t have the opportunity I wouldn’t have my deal I have with Adidas right now.”
Hmm…sounds to us like Kanye’s previous speeches might have gotten him into some trouble with the same corporations he denounced on his album Yeezus. While we appreciate his passionate personality, we’re proud of his bold declaration to take a break from making seemingly unnecessary waves and focus that energy into creating what we love from him– amazing music and visuals.
