Does Kanye West really think he is a god?!! Well during an interview yesterday on NY’s 92.3 NOW radio station he told New Yorkers not to buy Louis Vuitton until January all because the mega brand snubbed him in Paris recently. Kanye told listeners, “Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January.” Kanye said the head of Louis Vuitton, Yves Carcelle would not meet with him the last time he was in Paris and now he wants to show the French brand who’s boss by dropping their sales and showing them he has clout with buyers!
Don’t worry Kanye most people can’t afford LV anyway! So Kanye got dissed right…you would think he wouldn’t want to diss another innocent person…wrong…he kinda slammed Lenny Kravitz. His new rant occurred during his NYC concert on Sunday night. According to Page Six, Kanye talked about Lenny not realizing he was in the audience.
“It’s so funny when people compliment me and they say the word ‘genius’ as if that somehow separates me from other rappers in some way . . . I need you all to realize that Jay Z is a genius, and Drake is a genius . . . we are the modern day poets, obviously.”
He continued, “There wouldn’t be no song called ‘N****s in Paris’ without Lenny Kravitz, because he was the first n**** in Paris. Lenny has the best taste and the dopest crib in Paris . . . he designs furniture and he had been working on a clothing line for a long time . . . I said, ‘Wait a second, I’ve got a dream of doing a clothing line.’ You know what the billionaires told me while I was in Paris? They said Lenny wanted the same thing, like it was a joke. . . There wouldn’t be no Kanye West if it wasn’t for Lenny Kravitz. The only difference is I turn up on those n****s, I don’t give a [bleep] about looking cool or being cool, and this is no disrespect to Lenny.”
While an embarrassed Kravitz was heard saying, “He doesn’t know I’m here,” Kanye continued, “Have you heard anyone talk [bleep] about Lenny Kravitz? He’s a nice guy, he’s so well mannered. I envy people who are extremely likeable, I’m like, ‘Damn, I wish I could be likable like that.’ ”
Of designer Hedi Slimane: “He’s trying to tell the No. 1 rock star on the planet where the [bleep] he can go! [Bleep] fashion . . .I am going to tell you right now. I am the 2Pac of this kind of [bleep].”
