Kanye West stirs up more controversy with part three of his interview on Drink Champs.
The 45-year-old fashion mogul and rapper, who now goes by Ye, spoke with hosts NORE and DJ EFN about several topics during the nearly 45 minutes conversationincluding his theories about the death of George Floyd, how Jews control media and entertainment, Drakesuccess in hip hopand much more.
Yes, who recently attended the premiere of conservative commentator Candace Owens’ new film, The Biggest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLMsaid he believes Floyd’s death was caused by fentanyl and not by suffocation from a police officer’s knee.
“I watched the George Floyd documentary that Candace Owens released. One of the things his two roommates said was they want a tall guy like me, and the day he died he said a prayer for eight minutes ,” the rapper said. “They hit him with the fentanyl. If you see, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that.”
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter in May 2020 after he knelt on Floyd’s neck, ultimately resulting in the man’s death.
Ye also compared Floyd to the late fashion designer Virgil Abloh. “This white company Louis Vuitton is now making statues of him as a martyr and we don’t know exactly why [he died]they said it was cancer,” he said.
That Drink Champs the interview follows a whirlwind of controversies Ye has faced in recent weeks, including his removal from Twitter and Instagram for a string of anti-Semitic posts, along with backlash from his “White Lives Matter” shirt at Paris Fashion Week.
Elsewhere in the lengthy chat, Ye argued that he is not anti-Semitic because he is also Jewish as “the blood of Christ.” He also lashed out at Jews who control the media and entertainment, blaming “Jewish Zionists” for sensational articles about his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson.
“Jewish people have owned the black vote,” Ye said. “Either it’s through the fact that we wear the Ralph Lauren shirt, or it’s that we’ve all been signed to a record label, or that we have a Jewish manager, or that we’ve been signed to a Jewish basketball team, or that we’re making a movie on a Jewish platform like Disney. I respect what the Jewish people have done and how they brought their people together.”
The rapper also claimed that four concerts he had planned at Los Angeles’ So-Fi Stadium were canceled by stadium owners following his “Death Con 3” tweet.
“They have been with me too long,” Ye said. “They’re putting the crazy narrative out there.” He added: “Paparazzi take a picture of you, you don’t get any money out of it. You are used to being cheated by the Jewish media.”
Ye also touched on Drake’s successful career in hip-hop, calling the Canadian MC “the greatest rapper of all time. “I don’t apologize for that,” said the rapper, who previously dated Drizzy.
