Kanye West Tells Steve Harvey His Tour Starts in September
Kanye West was up early after last night's Met Gala to call into Steve Harvey's radio show and over the course of 20 minutes, Yeezy brought his eccentric Twitter account to life. Speaking passionately about wanting to change the world, fashion, The Life of Pablo, meeting with The Walt Disney Company and much, much more.
Most excitingly, Kanye announced that he will be going on the road in support of The Life of Pablo and is planning on hitting the pavement later this year. "My tour game is strong. My tour game is unprecedented. We're gonna go out in September, I believe. We're working on the ideas now. I'm trying to inspire these kids the way Disney inspired me, the way I saw the original Star Wars. Everybody know, they know, the people that run Hollywood know! They know what it is!"
When asked about how the idea for "Ultralight Beam" came about, 'Ye revealed that his relationship with Kirk Franklin started years ago and it wasn't a totally spontaneous happening. "Me and my dad went to visit Kirk four Christmases ago, that was just the beginning of the relationship. You can't just call Kirk Franklin out the blue and he's like, 'Okay, cool!" Yeezy said jokingly. "We were blessed to be in the same room when the Ultralight Beam came through I us. I can't explain that song in notes...I can only explain that song in feeling....This all came together a week and a half before the album [dropped]."
After saying that he didn't read a single review of his epic fashion show, Yeezy spoke on his Adidas clothing line and its future. "That first season, I wasn't in charge of none of those prices. Mark my words; I am coming for their neck. I'm about to drop these prices in a way that I can connect to the Kanye that I was when I was 14 years old and my mom could barely afford it."
Kanye also spoke about Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose and Taylor Swift and racism. Listen to the full interview below.
