Kanye West is a character and says what he wants.
From his strange slave comments to his support for Donal Trump, Ye' definitely doesn't sugar coat anything, and Fat Joe can attest to that.
Joe, who worked with Ye' on "Pride N Joy, remembers a time when he was in the studio with him, writing lyrics for the song, and Ye' approached him and express surprise he wrote his own lyrics.
"I sat down to do a record with Kanye West, we did the joint 'Pride N Joy,' and when I pulled out my paper, and started writing he was like, 'You write music?' This was five years ago,"
"He was like, 'You rap?' I was like what do you mean, we’re making a song together."
Apparently, Ye' didn't think Joe wrote his own bars, and had a team of mafia goons to assist with his lyrics and delivery.
"Oh, I just thought you were like a mafia don that they come give you different raps and you chose which one you say"
"I'm like, 'Get the fuck out of here. I've been rapping my whole life. What the hell are you talking about.' I never had no help."
What does this say about Ye's lyric writing process?
