Kanye West checked in with fans on his official web site’s blog on Sunday (November 23), responding to criticism after he told DJ Semtex he doesn’t listen to rap, since his apartment is too nice for that kind of music. West writes:
I listen to Jeezy, Wayne, Jim Jones, Big Bro and Rick Ross in my car and in the gym. I listen to only built for Cuban Links and Nas when I design… but if I’m in the crib chilling after rapping on stage every day of my life… no i’m not turning on no rap music (incorrect grammar intended). If somebody works in Starbucks they don’t drink coffee at the crib. Go to Bossip and read the comments. People are really uptight about what I listen to in myyyyy home! I ain’t go lie… Some of the comments are mad funny though!!! Bossip is one my favorites!!! hahaaaaa … oh and I still love ybf too. Watch tha AMA’s tonight!!! Sing it with me…. How could you be so heartless!!!
Sidebar: I use all caps cause I’m lazy not mad. I type with one hand and hold the phone with the other.
Some of the posts from the sites he mentioned at kanyeuniversecity.com have since been removed.
