Kanye West has been in rare form lately. It seems like everytime he opens his mouth in public these days, he’s tearing into someone (Justin Timberlake) or something (The Grammys), but something ‘Ye said when he called a radio station recently has us worried. Does Kanye think his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian is affecting his career?

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.

Or...maybe it was the kilt.
