Kanye West isn’t shy about telling you exactly what’s on his mind. When Yeezy discovered that MTV ranked him the seventh hottest MC of 2012, he immediately called up New York’s Hot 97 to share his feelings. During his rant, which mentioned people not feeling “Givenchy Kanye” or his relationship status, Ye also pointed out that he had the hottest line of 2012. His Kris Humphries diss. “I don’t think it’s them really going bar-for-bar: I said, ‘Lucky I didn’t have Jay drop him from the team!’ ” he said, quoting a line from his track “Cold. Ain’t no bar, ain’t no bar in the entire past four months hotter than that bar. That’s one bar! I come from this battle rap; that’s how I grew up. I’m from Chicago.” It was highly entertaining, I’ll give Ye that.  Check out what else he had to say: “I feel like for them to put me at No. 7, they had to bring up things they didn’t like, like they didn’t like Cruel Summer album. And I’m, like, ‘That’s a compilation. It’s not all rappers on [it].’” Of course the media had to share in the blame:  ”What happens with these type of things and the people that review it, when I come in and I have the pink polo and the backpack, I’m checking all the boxes of that A Tribe Called Quest era and all that, so they want to champion it. They don’t like Givenchy Kanye. They don’t like Kanye in a kilt, they don’t like Kanye in a relationship.” The irony of Kanye bringing up that line. Humphries was alerted on Wednesday that as the Nets are on their playoff push, Kris is the odd man out of the rotation. Guess Kanye didn’t have to get him dropped from the team, his play did. On the bright side, that means he’s free and clear to show up for his court date for his divorce proceedings from Kim Kardashian. Maybe if he had focused more on his game instead of fighting her he wouldn’t be the forgotten one on his day job. :shrug: If you want to hear more from that interview including who Kanye wants you to know he bought a TV for, take a listen.
