Last year, Paul McCartney and Kanye West had one of the more out-of-left-field musical collaborations, which included the tracks 'Only One' and 'All Day'.

According to Sir Paul, Oprah Winfrey warned him to stay away from 'All Day,' because of 'Ye's repeated use of the n-word in the track. However, the former Beatle said that West's language didn't bother him at all.

"People like Oprah, who’s a little conservative about that stuff, said, ‘You shouldn’t do it, even black people shouldn’t use that word. I said, ‘Yeah, but it’s Kanye,” McCartney told the BBC. “And he’s talking about an urban generation that uses that word in a completely different way.’ It’s the context. So I was actually pleased with it."
As for the 73-year old's general feelings on 'Ye:

"I love Kanye, people say he’s eccentric which you would have to agree with but he is a monster… he is a crazy guy who comes up with great stuff."
It's hard to disagree with that.
