Kanye West: “Ya’ll be Calling My Daughter’s Name Weird”


This time, the rapper has slammed those who joke about his daughter North’s name. He thinks the unique moniker is “innovative and fresh”, and believes those who call it weird are simply being closed-minded. He says he’s tired of people not understanding his creative side:

”Ya’ll be calling my daughter’s name weird, like, her name should be like some name that you’ve heard before and all that. I don’t like to say that it’s weird when it’s innovative and fresh. Like I hate that, like, creatives are beat down so much and are put in a position where they can’t even speak out loud, that’s the reason why the world be ugly, because there’s millions of beautiful colours in the world but the world is only controlled by one colour.”

The rapper adds that he doesn’t understand why his family have to take so much abuse when all he is attempting to do is give something back to people through his creativity:

”I’m in my own zone. I can’t walk around trying to defend myself, chime in on everything. I fight for the people who see those colours, who understand it, and I take the hit constantly. I have the bravery to take the hit, people to call me names, call wife names, call my daughter … We take the hit, but when it’s said and done if you look at the past 10 years, have I contributed more or took away more from the world? From music, from stage design, or just from wearing dope a*s coats at the airport?”

Kanye says he’s happy to step away from the spotlight for a while so he can focus on the important elements of his life, such as his family and design projects:

”I gotta focus on the kids, I gotta take them to tap class and all types of gym class. I really wanna go away, like I been doing a lot of features, right now I just want to take some time to focus on my album, my next collection and North’s birthday. Just focus on my family and then be able to recharge and reenergise and bring something of value.”
