Kanye West X Access Hollywood: “Could You Imagine Waking Up To Tweets That Say “Die N***a Die”?



Kanye West sat down with Access Hollywood and spoke about his film, “Runaway,” and upcoming album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” which will be in stores November 22. He also discussed the media’s ability to create the enemy and whether his songs are directed towards anyone in particular. Here are a few excerpts


Do you ever feel like went away or were you soul searching?
Yeah definitely, soul searching. It’s difficult…could you imagine waking up one day, today 2010 where Barack Obama is president and literally there’s millions of tweets that say, “Die n*gga, Die!”? Could you imagine?

Something that wasn’t racially charged at all, it was more…okay this is right and this is wrong. To be thrown in the box of being a racist. Where literally, it would be white girls that say “Hey, I thought you didn’t like us!” Like I hate all white people now. The way the media tries to create the enemy wrestler, the Russian wrestler. They create these characters and you’re not even like a real person or have any dynamics..basically an enemy


It’s really stupid and harsh but the only thing about the media and that….I have the internet and I have my music and my voice is going to be louder and I’m going to WIN. I’m going to prevail and the right is gong to prevail. For the honesty, the truth, the creativity, and the person I am…a good person with good intentions with everything I do. If you look at it, it’s still good intentions maybe bad timing but regardless good intentions and it’s going to prevail.

Are songs directed to certain people and events on the “Runway” album?
It’s very direct and very extremely emotional. The “Runaway” piece at the end, it’s like my voice is being changed into a guitar. When I did that I was tearing up. Just humming the abstracted notes, I was crying just humming notes. And the notes were more expressive than the words.

Who is the song directed to?
In a way it’s funny. The songs just sound like they’re talking about a girl. It can also be talking about my relationship with society or my relationship with the fans or anyone who I let down. Or people that had to defend me or really love me or everything. I like leaving songs ambiguous a little bit, where it could be about other people or it could be about yourself. It can be a man’s anthem, but its a woman’s anthem also..let’s have a toast to the douche bags.
