SWAY RESPONDS TO KANYE WEST’S HOT 97 CALL- IN RANT
Mar 2013 06

Kanye+West+SwayKanye West made a surprise call in to Hot 97 yesterday (March 5th) to give his reaction about coming in at #7 for MTV‘s Hottest MC’s in the Game list. He said about coming in on the list. “That was cool and everything. More than anything, I’m happy for Sean, but I feel like he should be on top 5. He’s bodying records, like the way he started off that “Mercy.”

On coming in at no.7, and thinking he is the top rapper in the world, he said, “Yeah, #7 bothers me. I think that [Lil] Wayne is the number one rapper in the world.”

He continued, [“I feel like in order for them to put me in number 7 they had to bring up things that they didn’t like. They didn’t like the Cruel Summer album. And, I’m like its a compilation. It ain’t all rappers on GOOD Music. I mean Cruel Summer got ‘Don’t Like (Remix),’ ‘Mercy,’ ‘Cold,’ all on one joint. And “Clique!” You can’t name 5 records like that on no album, but they wanted to diss me and be like ‘Oh, he did Cruel Summer and he can’t say he ain’t apart of it because he’s on 8 records.’ Ain’t nobody bringing up that “Diamonds” remix verse. It wasn’t no verse in a year that was fucking with that verse! It’s definitely not based on a body of work, but possibly it could be, like, overall rap-MC-swag, you know what I’m saying.”] SOUNDCUE (: 55 OC . . . what I’m saying)

  • Kanye then said that his fashion sense and relationship with Kim possibly had something to do with him not landing higher up on the list. He said, [“. . . when you come in, I had like the pink polo and the backpack and I’m checkin’ all the boxes of that Tribe Called Quest era and J. Dilla and all that, so they wanna champion it. They don’t like Givenchy Kanye. They don’t like Kanye in a kilt. They don’t like Kanye in a relationship. I don’t think it’s them really going bar for bar. I said, “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” Ain’t no bar, ain’t no bar in the entire past 12 months that’s hotter than that bar. That’s one bar! I couldn’t believe it. I gave Sway his first TV. He came over to my crib in Newark, NJ. I was living in Newark doing beats for Jay and Beans and all them and I was getting a new TV and I gave Sway his first TV. And really I didn’t really wanna even like call to talk about the #7 list, I just wanna tell everybody that I gave Sway his first TV. And he need to remember that. “] SOUNDCUE (:56 OC: to remember that)

LIL WAYNE AND SWAY RESPOND TO KANYE

Lil Wayne and Sway took to Twitter to respond to Kanye’s rant. Wayne wrote, “That’s the ultimate compliment coming from a humble,great,extremely creative,& superior genius…I appreciate that Yeezy!”

  • Sway tweeted, “#Swaysfirsttv OK the jig is up! @KanyeWest thanks 4 my 1st Tv BUT you still owe me the REMOTE! lol #Hottestmc finale on @MTVJAMS Thurs 10pm!”
