Kanye West Talks Tyga, Amber Rose and His New Album With The Breakfast Club

Yeezy weighs in on Kardashian family rumors.

UPDATED ON : FEBRUARY 20, 2015 / 07:08 AM

Infamously vocal Kanye West stopped by The Breakfast Club and "gave a lot of information," addressing all that social-media noise about his wife, Kim Kardashian, and sister-in-law, Kylie Jenner; making an album with Tyga and one with Drake; and why he didn't speak out about Michael Brown.

The recent media storm surrounding his personal life stirred when Amber Rose visited the station and derided Tyga's relationship with Jenner. She went on to continue the conversation on Twitter, getting into a back-and-forth with Khloe Kardashian that included Rose calling Kim a "whore."

Yeezy didn’t hesitate to make it clear where his allegiance stood in the ongoing tiff between the Kardashians and Rose.

“She’s just soaking in the moment,” he said of Rose. “If Kim had dated me when I wanted, there would be no Amber Rose." The "Bound 2" rapper revealed that he had to take "30 showers" before entering to into a proper courtship with Kim following his relationship with Rose.

As for Tyga's relationship with his little sister-in-law, he said, "I think he got in early, I think he was smart... They closer in age than a lot of relationships I know." The two (Tyga and Jenner) maintain that they are friends.

Kanye went on to say that he's executive-producing Tyga's next album. 


Yeezy also addressed his and Kim's seemingly strained relationship with the Carters. He insists that Beyoncé and Kim aren't beefing. "Naw they love each other," he said. "They respect each other. When Beyoncé's working on an album, she has a picture of Kim on the wall." According to 'Ye, Kim represents the powerful women that inspires Bey's music. 

When the conversation switched gears to music, Kanye revealed that his new song, "The Wolves," was born from a chat he had with Drake when they were going to do an album together. He admitted that while he'd still do an album with Drizzy, the early conversation around it created some tension with Jay Z before they recorded Watch the Throne.

As for why he was quiet on such a palpable national issue as Ferguson, "My dad e-mailed me and told me to stay out of it, that's my only parent, so I have to listen to him. ... I think he was trying to be protective of his son. I can't run in front of every bullet," Kanye said, adding that he does speak about it in his music. "I'm always gon' talk about what's going on, like Marvin Gaye said."

His next album, the Yeezus follow-up, doesn't have a release date, however. "I'm trying to get it finished," Kanye said. "I'm trying to get it to the people."
