With the North American leg of his Yeezus tour coming to a close, the King of Controversy Kanye West claims he is giving up his throne for at least six months. During one of his stream of consciousness speeches at his Toronto concert, the G.O.O.D. Music leader said he will stop making controversial statements for the first half of 2014.
“This might be the last time y’all hear me talk s**t for a long time. Might be another like six months. At least,” Ye told the crowd. “You’re just gonna have to run back the interviews and s**t if you wanna hear some realness.”
Kanye has made numerous headlines over the last several months. He “beefed” with Jimmy Kimmel, called out the CEO of Nike, told Sway Calloway he didn’t have the answers, criticized the Grammys for only getting two nominations, upset some people in the Jewish community, and compared his job to the work of police officers and soldiers.
The “New Slaves” rhymer goes on to say that 2014 will be a year where he focuses all his energy on new ideas, and he will not speak negatively about anyone again including Nike and the Grammys.
“I’m not finna be the dude that has all the opportunities in the world and just focuses on negative and complains about it,” added Ye. “This is the last time you’ll ever hear me say anything negative about anyone.”
