    He alludes to the fact that Kim's robbery was a larger plan to mess with him. The ego on this guy is unreal so narcissistic

    the ignorance that charlemagne had when he said, "he's been President for a year and nothing good come from it"... eh? Ignorant.
    But Ye? Love Kanye.

    This was a huge eye opener for me. Ye isn't about working for the company, he's about owning it. I like the why do we always have to be reminded of slavery idea. Although history is important. Above all he never at any point in this conversation co-signed Trumps political policies. He just likes that he's an outsider and I think that that is one of the few aspects to be admired about his presidency. He's right Obama was too perfect and it annoyed a lot of us non-conformists. Like A LOT! He straight out said he would've preferred the Trump campaign with the Bernie Ideas! Enough said. My heart as a Ye fan was 💔 pre interview. I was so disappointed and put off by the shit the media was saying, I put off watching this for a while. It unbroke my heart! 💜

    Charlemagne is so out of touch with President Trump it’s sad. Kayne had his breakthrough. Your turn! Open up your ears and listen. Open your eyes and see. The Democratic Party is built on enslavement. “No don’t become a CEO of your own company, rely on the government for your needs. Here is your welfare. We need your votes.” They want you teaching your children to be a victim from the moment they come out the womb! Kayne DO NOT worship false idols. Do not buy into that false new age stuff. Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior.

    Love how he carefully takes his time to study the question before answering. His level of understanding is way too deep. He’s a true artist you can just see it in his expressions . He knows a lot and if we have someone like this we should definitely bring him closer . Listening to him is very refreshing.

    1:45 "That didn't make no sense" LOLOL Kanye, write a book about your ideas instead of giving weird sound bites like this. It will be revolutionary. Get someone to proof it and to edit it before publishing. Document the process. I'm serious. You should hire me, but you're not smart enough to.

    Fun fact: When you can deflect a question with an amazing and thought out answer...... to a completely DIFFERENT question, that's called "pulling a Kanye". :)

    GREAT interview, BUT, Charlemagne... You let Kanye off the hook when you asked him if he felt like Trump cares about Black people. You shouldn't have let him dance around that. Lol.
    Bottom line, though- This is some of CtG's best work. Maybe his BEST interview. 💯

    By the way, 57:15 is interesting, what he says about Obama could be 100% true for Jay Z too. It looks like Kanye is a wildcard / unpredictable piece in the major chess game of the Carters. Jay Z is buidling a legacy for himself and Beyonce and Kanye is just too much of a liability for his business, so it looks like he chose business over friendship sadly

    The fact that he has to refer to his mental wellbeing as 'mental break thru' and not a 'mental breakdown' shows he has still not come to terms with it. He is still in denial. There is no shame in having mental health issues. Most of us will suffer from it at some stage in our lives.

    • K T
      K T Month ago

      +B Menzella I never said he's not proud of his mental health issues now. When you are in the acute phase in a break down, a person 's mental coping mechanisms are at their lowest, and they have usually spiralled downwards or out of control. Therefore its called a 'breakdown'. During the recovery phase, with the right person or people to talk to, it very well may be a break through. But the acute phase of when it is occurring is a completely different mindset to when you are back on an even keel, and see light at the end of the tunnel. Or as Ye calls it his 'break through'. Oh and I did watch the video in its entirety. Right till they were walking along in the dark on the land he's bought.

    I got here via a comment on reddit linking how this was an example of how he is "super f'ed up upstairs" but I found this far from the truth. Yes there is some unconventional thinking here I would say but it is very very interesting and backed up with clear intelligence and honesty. Some of the concepts are perhaps difficult to at first grasp but perhaps that is because he hasn't put a complete picture in words to what is a very complex thought process. I like the music but I would love to read a book on creativity and business from this man, I think with the added detail you can make in a book it would be a great read with a lot to learn from and think about.

    I used to have no respect for Charlemagne. I must say seeing him have an actual meaningful conversation and also show sincere concern for someone is changing my perspective on him. I love seeing my black men grow from little boys to men. Kanye as well. I thought he was a little bit off but I realize I need to be more open minded. He is a smart man in a world full of dummies. I will never be happy about him marrying a Caucasian and potentially having all he built go to the very race that hates us but hey... we’ve all made horrible mistakes.
