In “Good luck with THAT bruh” news… the ever outspoken Kanye West has vowed to keep a lid on it and not make newsworthy statements for at least six months.
During the Toronto stop of his Yeezus tour, Yeezy made the promise during one of his now famous concert rants:
“This might be the last time y’all hear me talk s–t for a long time. Might be another like six months. At least,” Yeezy said. “You’re just gonna have to run back the interviews and s–t if you wanna hear some realness.”
Of course Kanye is referring to his numerous instances of making the news for outlandish statements and controversial stances including getting into a war of words with late night TV show host Jimmy Kimmel, angering the Jewish community, and criticizing a laundry list of people including the CEO of Nike, the Grammys, and even his longtime friend Sway Calloway.
At one point in the rant, the “Bound 2” rapper even goes on to promise a somewhat softer and gentler persona in the coming new year by ceasing to speak negatively on those who get under his skin:
“I’m not finna be the dude that has all the opportunities in the world and just focuses on negative and complains about it,” says Ye. “This is the last time you’ll ever hear me say anything negative about anyone.”
Somehow the classic Jay Z line “We don’t believe you, you need more people” comes to mind here. That’s a mighty big proclaimation for anyone, let alone Kanye. You get the feeling that he just can’t help speak his mind. But hey, we’re all entitled to our new year’s resolutions, right?
