Kanye called New York’s Hot 97 radio station recently, after MTV named him #7 on their "Hottest MCs in the Game VIII" list, and he wasn’t that happy about it. According to an MTV report, Kanye had a bone to pick with the selection panel’s criteria, and their hip-hop purist attitude.
“What happens is with these types of things ... as soon as you come in like, I had the pink Polo and the backpack, then I'm checking all the boxes of that Tribe Called Quest era and J Dilla and all that, So they wanna champion it," Kanye said. "They don't like 'Givenchy Kanye,' they don't like Kanye in a kilt, they don't like Kanye in a relationship."
If you're right, Kanye, then maybe it's not your relationship that's the problem, maybe it was seeing you with Kim at a Givenchy show that really tipped these tastemakers over the edge.
