The album’s popping out February 11, I’m doing the style present February 11 at Madison Sq. Backyard, we’re dropping the album February 12th that morning. It’s like…
TAYLOR: [Inaudible]

KANYE: Oh, thanks so, a lot. Yeah. It feels good. It looks like actual Ye, Apple, Steve Jobs-type music. So my subsequent single, I needed you to tweet it. It’s a great Friday to drop it. It’s a great Friday tune. In order that’s why I’m calling you, that I needed you to place the tune out.
TAYLOR: Oh, wow. Like, um, what would individuals… I suppose it might simply be, individuals can be like, “Whyyyy is that this occurring?” They’d assume I had one thing to do with it, in all probability.
KANYE: Effectively, the rationale why it is going to be occurring is as a result of it has a really controversial line at first of the tune about you.
TAYLOR: …What does it say?
KANYE: So it says… and the tune is so, so dope. And I’ve actually sat with my spouse, with my entire administration group, with every thing and tried to remodel this line. I’ve thought of this line for eight months. I’ve had this line and I’ve tried to remodel it each which approach. And the unique approach that I thought of it’s the easiest way, nevertheless it’s essentially the most controversial approach. So it’s gonna go Eminem slightly bit, so are you able to brace your self for a second?

KANYE: Okay. All proper. Wait a second, you sound unhappy.
TAYLOR: Effectively, is it gonna be imply?
KANYE: No, I don’t assume it’s imply.
TAYLOR: Okay, then, let me hear it.
KANYE: Okay. It says, um,… and the humorous factor is, once I first performed it and my spouse heard it, she was like, “Huh? What? That’s too loopy,” blah, blah, blah. And then like when Ninja from Die Atwoord heard it, he was like, “Oh my God, that is the craziest s—. This is the reason I really like Kanye,” blah, blah, blah, that sort of factor. And now it’s like my spouse’s favourite f–king line. I simply needed to present you some premise of that. Proper?

KANYE: So it says “To all my Southside [N-word] that know me greatest, I really feel like Taylor Swift may owe me intercourse.”
TAYLOR: [Laughs] That’s not imply.
KANYE: Okay. Effectively, that is the factor the place I’m calling you, since you’re bought a military. You personal a rustic of mom—ing 2 billion individuals, mainly, that when you felt that it’s humorous and funky and like hip-hop, and felt like simply “The School Dropout” and the artist like Ye that you simply love, then I feel that individuals can be like approach into it. And that’s why I feel it’s super-genius to have you ever be the one that claims, “Oh, I like this tune loads. Like, yeah, no matter, that is cool, no matter.” It’s like, I bought like s— on my album the place I’m like, “I wager me and Ray J can be associates, if we ain’t love the identical bitch.”

TAYLOR: Oh my God! I imply, I would like to consider it, as a result of you understand, whenever you hear one thing for the primary time, you simply want to consider it. As a result of it’s completely loopy. I’m glad it’s not imply, although. It doesn’t really feel imply. However oh my God, the buildup you gave it, I believed it was going to be like, “That silly, dumb bitch.” Nevertheless it’s not. So I don’t know. I imply, the launch factor, I feel it might be sort of complicated to individuals. However I undoubtedly like… I undoubtedly assume that once I’m requested about it, after all I’ll be like, “Yeah, I really like that. I feel it’s hilarious.” However, um, I would like to consider it.
KANYE: You don’t need to do the launching and tweet. That was simply an additional concept I had. However when you assume that that’s cool, then it’s cool. If not… I imply, we’re launching the s— like on simply good Fridays on SoundCloud, on the location, s— like that.
TAYLOR: You already know, the factor about me is, something that I do turns into like a feminist think-piece. And if I launch it, they’re going to be like, wow, like, they’ll simply flip into one thing that… I feel if I launch it, truthfully, I feel it’ll be much less cool. As a result of I feel if I launch it, it provides this stage of criticism. As a result of having that many followers and having that many eyeballs on me proper now, individuals are simply on the lookout for me to do one thing dumb or silly or lame. And I don’t know. I sort of really feel like individuals would attempt to make it detrimental if it got here from me, have you learnt what I imply? I feel I’m very self-aware about the place I’m, and I really feel like proper now I’m like this near overexposure.
KANYE: Oh. Effectively, this one, I feel this can be a actually cool factor to have.
TAYLOR: I do know, I imply, it’s like a praise, sort of. [Laughs]
KANYE: I’ve this line the place I mentioned… And my spouse actually didn’t like this one, as a result of we tried to make it nicer. So I say “For all my Southside [N-word] that know me greatest, I really feel like me and Taylor may nonetheless have intercourse.” And my spouse was actually not with that one. She was far more into the “She owes you intercourse.” However then the “owe” half was just like the feminist group-type shit that I used to be like, ahhhhh.
TAYLOR: That’s the half that I used to be sort of… I imply, they ‘re each actually edgy, however that’s the one factor about that line is that it’s like, then the feminists are going to return out. However I imply, you don’t give a f–okay. So…
KANYE: Yeah, mainly. Effectively, what I give a f–okay about is simply you as an individual, as a good friend….
TAYLOR: That’s candy.
KANYE: I would like issues that make you are feeling good. I don’t need to do rap that makes individuals really feel unhealthy. Like after all, like I’m mad at Nike, so individuals assume, “Oh, he’s a bully. He ran on stage with Taylor. He’s bullying Nike now,” this $50 billion firm.
TAYLOR: Why are individuals saying you’re bullying Nike?
KANYE: As a result of on “Info,” like, I say, “Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, they line up for days / Nike out right here unhealthy, they’ll’t give s— away.”
TAYLOR: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I imply, that’s simply what you do, although. I imply, I wouldn’t say that it’s doable to bully an organization like Nike. However I imply… um, yeah, I imply, go together with no matter line you assume is healthier. It’s clearly very tongue-in-cheek both approach. And I actually admire you telling me about it. That’s very nice.
KANYE: Oh, yeah. I simply had a accountability to you as a good friend. I imply, thanks for being like so cool about it.
TAYLOR: Thanks. Yeah, I actually admire it. The heads-up is so good. You’d be stunned how many individuals simply do issues with out even asking or seeing if I’d be okay with it, and I simply actually admire it. I by no means would have anticipated you to inform me a few line in considered one of your songs. That’s very nice that you simply did.
KANYE: You imply like surprising s— such as you taking the time to present somebody a extremely, actually invaluable award after which they fully run for president proper afterwards? Like surprising in that sort of approach? [Laughs] [A few months earlier, at the 2015 MTV Awards, Swift presented West with his lifetime achievement award, followed by a rambling speech in which he acknowledged he had smoked pot beforehand and was going to run for president.]
TAYLOR: [Laughs] We’ve not talked about what occurred.
KANYE: I simply thought that was wavy. It was vibey. The humorous factor is, I believed in regards to the weed and the president, each of these issues I thought of within the bathe the day earlier than and simply began laughing like loopy. I used to be like, I gotta say that I had simply smoked some weed after which say I’m gonna run for president… So these are my bases of… I knew I needed to say the factor about going to love the Dodgers sport with my daughter and like getting booed and that being scary, and I knew I needed to say like me altering and serious about individuals extra since I had a daughter. And then I needed to say the weed factor. And then I needed to say the president factor. And every thing else was identical to off the cuff.
TAYLOR: Oh my God. It was undoubtedly prefer it stole the present… And then the flowers that you simply despatched me. I Instagrammed an image of them and it’s essentially the most Instagram likes I’ve ever gotten. It was like 2.7 million likes on that image of the flowers you despatched me. Loopy.
KANYE: It’s some connection or one thing that I feel is basically necessary about that second after we met on stage. There’s one thing that I feel is basically necessary about that, and the place humanity goes, or now the place me and Kim are, and having a household and simply every thing, the best way issues are touchdown. So it’s at all times… Relationships are extra necessary than punchlines, you understand.
TAYLOR: Yeah, I imply, I don’t assume anyone would hearken to that and be like, “Oh, that’s an actual diss” — like, “She should be crying about that line.” And I feel due to how loopy and unusual and fateful the best way we met was, I feel now we have to select our moments to do stuff collectively and ensure it’s solely actually cool stuff.
KANYE: Yeah, precisely. We will’t have it like be someone else’s concept that will get in entrance and so they’re like… As a result of when you’re like a extremely true, artistic, visceral, vibey sort individual, it’s in all probability laborious so that you can work at an organization. So how will you give a artistic artistic concepts and also you’re working in a home of non-creativity? It’s like this bizarre… So each time we speak instantly… Okay, now what if later within the tune I used to be additionally to have mentioned, uh… “I made her well-known”? Is {that a}…
TAYLOR: …Did you say that?
KANYE: Sure, it’d’ve occurred. [Laughs]
TAYLOR: Effectively, what am I going to do about it?
KANYE: Uh, like, do the hair flip?
TAYLOR: Yeah. I imply… Um… It’s simply sort of like, no matter, at this level. However I imply, you’ve bought to inform the story the best way that it occurred to you and the best way that you simply’ve skilled it. Like, you truthfully didn’t know who I used to be earlier than that. Like, it doesn’t matter if I bought 7 million of that album [Fearless] earlier than you probably did that, which is what occurred. You didn’t know who I used to be earlier than that. It’s effective. However, um, yeah. I can’t wait to listen to it.
KANYE: I imply, it’s enjoyable. It’s undoubtedly… You’re able to development. That’s all I can say.
TAYLOR: Uh, what’s the tune known as?
KANYE: Uh, it could be known as “Hood Well-known.”
TAYLOR: Oh, cool. Is it going to be like a single-single, or is it going to be a SoundCloud launch? What are you doing?
KANYE: Oh, this one proper right here is like f–king Song of the 12 months-type territory.
TAYLOR: Oh my God. Superb. That’s loopy. Oh my God. Talking of Song of the 12 months, are you going to the Grammys?
KANYE: Uh, you understand what? I used to be considering to not do it. However I feel that this tune… You already know what? I’m going to ship you the tune and ship you the precise wording and every thing about it, proper? And then we might sit and speak by it. But when the tune goes and f–king simply…
At this second, the video cuts out and it seems as if the cameraman’s battery died.
TAYLOR: … they only have a look at us and go… [Inaudible] …Even when we’ve made an unimaginable achievement, it’s tougher for individuals to write down down our names for some motive. That’s simply human nature. It’s envy. It’s asking individuals in our trade to vote for the people who find themselves already killing it.
KANYE: Yeah. It’s like so many individuals needed Meek Mill to win as a result of Drake was simply killing it for therefore lengthy, and so they have been identical to, “We simply want, like, Meek Mill to, like…” However I feel, you understand, okay… In order that has my thoughts going by loads of locations to problem-solve. I used to be speaking to Ben Horowitz — have you learnt this man? He’s a VC. Ben Horowitz out of San Fran. However he’s down with that.
TAYLOR: I do know that identify. I don’t know him.
KANYE: It’s identical to the San Fran clique, you understand, that sort of factor, like he stays down the road from Mark Zuckerberg and s— like that. So I used to be speaking to him and I used to be like, “Bro”… Like me, I’m in private debt. I’m in debt by a great like 20, 30 million, ever for the reason that trend, and nonetheless haven’t made it out of it. In order that’s a part of the rationale why I needed to go to Roc Nation and the touring offers developed, and it allowed the entire city to attempt to really feel like they might management Kanye and even speak to me like I’m common or have brokers do it, however they noticed they couldn’t. It’s like even in debt, he strikes round like he’s like a billionaire. I’m like, yeah, I’m a cultural trillionaire! I might need monetary money owed. So I informed Ben Horowitz, I used to be like, “You guys, you, Mark Zuckerberg or whoever, Tim Cook dinner, you guys have to wash that up.” So I’m sending Ben Horowitz my present steadiness. That implies that l’m not up 50, not up 100 million, not up 200 million, not up 300 million. No —detrimental 20 million, at present. I, Kanye West, the man who created the style of music that’s the Weeknd, that’s Drake — the man who created… Each single person who makes music proper now, favourite album is “The School Dropout.” Each single person who makes music. However I’m wealthy sufficient… Like, I went into debt to my spouse by 6 million engaged on a f–king home, lower than like a couple of months in the past, and I used to be capable of pay her again earlier than Christmas and s— like that. So, you understand, once I discuss Nike, the concept they wouldn’t give me a share, that I might make one thing that was so tangible, when Drake was simply rapping me into the motherf–king garbage can, that I might have one thing that was tangible that confirmed my creativity and expressed myself, that additionally might be a enterprise that I might have a five-times a number of on and really be capable to promote it for like 100 million, 200 million or a billion {dollars}, that was very critical. Each dialog, each time I’d scream at Charlemagne [Tha God] or scream at [radio host] Sway, that was actually, actually, actually critical. And it additionally was with my household. I felt like, look, if I’m simply the indignant black man with some cool crimson sneakers from Nike 5 years in the past, I used to be going to be visiting my daughter, versus be dwelling along with her. It will’ve been like, sufficient is sufficient. It wouldn’t have been cool anymore, as a result of it might have been a bunch of individuals, together with my spouse, that every one had not less than like 500, 400 million of their account. And you then get the indignant black man on the occasion speaking about “I’m the one which put Kim within the gown! I’m the one which did this!” Nevertheless it by no means realized itself. In order that’s one of many issues I simply talked to Ben… And I discuss it on the album. Discuss private debt and s—. Simply the concept like, “Oh s—, this dude with this f–king Maybach that makes f–king $50 million a tour nonetheless hasn’t lined it up or got here out of the purpose when AEG and Reside Nation wouldn’t give him a deal.” The debt began after “Watch the Throne” [West’s joint album with Jay-Z], as a result of I bought no deal. However I nonetheless was doing my artistic tasks alone, taking pictures a movie, doing a trend present, simply attempting to be very Disney, be very visceral, be artistic. And…
TAYLOR: I imply, I’m positive you’ve thought of this up and down, however I imply, is there a approach to monetize these in a approach that you simply thought would nonetheless really feel genuine however make them right into a multibillion greenback firm?
KANYE: Effectively, that’s what we’re going to do. That’s what we’re within the plans of. I’m 100% going to be like a multi, multi, multi-billionaire. I feel it’s enjoyable that I can like be like Charlie Sheen and be like, “Hey, like, I bought AIDS.” You already know, like…. To me, I informed Drake that the opposite night time. I used to be like, “Yo, Drake, I’m in private debt.” And for me to inform Drake, the f–king primary bachelor on this planet that may f–king rap anyone right into a garbage can, that lives 4 blocks down the road from my spouse and like mainly f–ks all of her associates, that I’m in private debt, it’s such a like placing down the sword or placing down the hand or opening, exhibiting the hand. That I don’t have my poker face on with any of you guys. I’m simply me. I’m only a artistic. You already know, every thing I did, even when it was mistimed, no matter it’d’ve been from a… It’s at all times like from a great place, and I do know that I’ll overcome it and I do know that the world will overcome it. As a result of, like, I’m going to alter the world. I’m going to make it… I’m gonna make individuals’s lives higher on some post-Steve Jobs, Howard Hughes-type shit. Like, I’m going to do issues with schooling. I’m going to do issues that assist to settle down murders in Chicago or throughout the globe. Issues that assist to settle down police brutality, to equalize the wealth amidst the category system. As a result of there’s a bunch of lessons of rich those who hate Obama as a result of he’s extra social and he needs the individuals who don’t have something to have every thing. And in my little approach, by studying the best way to design, design is one thing that’s solely given to the wealthy at present. The precise shade palette that Hermes makes use of versus the colour palette that Endlessly 21 makes use of — a shade palette is extraordinarily necessary. Colour is necessary. You already know, the information of proportions… you understand, the dimensions of our home versus the dimensions of another person’s homes, and simply the dynamics of that proportion. Like, I don’t need this dialog to go too, too lengthy, however I needed to present you a little bit of the place I’m at and the angle that I’m at and the best way… the truth that I’m the microprocessor of our tradition. Which means like, I can determine the best way to give Rihanna a Mary J. Blige-type album. I can determine the best way to get the style world to just accept my spouse, and thus the entire household. I can determine loads of inconceivable… I can determine the best way to make one thing that you simply’re carrying to the airport, 5 years after all the globe was like, “Cling that [N-word] alive and f–okay him, and let’s watch him die, slowly, publicly.” So, it’s loads. I figured that out for myself, so it’s loads of s— that we collectively, with the ability that you’ve and your followers, the ability my spouse has, the ability that I’ve, that we are able to do to actually make it the place it’s not simply the wealthy getting richer, however… You already know, make it not only a f–king charity, not singing for Africa, however change issues in a approach that individuals can expertise s— themselves, a chunk of the nice life. You already know?
TAYLOR: Yeah. I imply, they’re superb concepts and superb ideas, and I undoubtedly would love to speak to you extra about it. I do know it’s a must to do one thing proper now, however I really like that that’s the place you’re headed. And it’s been like that. I imply, after we went to dinner, there have been the rumblings of these concepts. I like that you simply’re at all times considering outward. And over the past six, seven, eight years, nonetheless lengthy it’s been since that occurred, I haven’t at all times favored you, however I’ve at all times revered you. And I feel that’s what you’re saying whenever you say like, you understand, “I could be in debt, however I could make these items occur, and I’ve the concepts to do it, and I can create these items or these ideas.” Like, I’m at all times going to respect you. And I’m actually glad that you simply had the respect to name me and inform me that as a good friend in regards to the tune, and it’s a extremely cool factor to do, and a extremely good present of friendship. So thanks.
KANYE: Oh, thanks too.
TAYLOR: And you understand, if individuals ask me about it, look, I feel it might be nice for me to be like, “Look, he known as me and informed me the road earlier than it got here out. Like, the joke’s on you guys. We’re effective.”
KANYE: Yeah. Yeah. Okay. I feel that’s just about the swap proper there.
TAYLOR: Yeah. Like, you guys need to name this a feud, you need to name this throwing shade, however you understand, proper after the tune comes out, I’m gonna be on a Grammy crimson carpet, and so they’re gonna ask me about it and I’ll be like, “He known as me and despatched me the tune earlier than it got here out.” So I feel we’re good.
KANYE: Okay. I’m gonna go lay this verse, and I’m gonna ship it to you proper now.
TAYLOR: Oh, you simply… you haven’t recorded it but?
KANYE: I recorded it. I’m nuancing the strains — just like the final model of it says, “Me and Taylor may nonetheless have intercourse.” And then my spouse was like, ”That doesn’t sound as laborious!”
TAYLOR: Effectively, I imply, she’s saying that truthfully as a result of she’s your spouse, and like, um… So I feel no matter one you assume is definitely higher. I imply, clearly do what’s greatest in your relationship, too. I feel “owes me intercourse,” it says various things. It says… “Owes me intercourse” means like “Look, I made her what she is. She really owes me.” Which goes to separate individuals, as a result of individuals who like me are going to be like, “She doesn’t owe him s—.” However then individuals who like thought it was bad-ass and loopy and superior that you simply’re so outspoken are going to be like, “Yeah, she does. It made her well-known.” So it’s extra provocative to say “nonetheless have intercourse,” as a result of nobody would see that coming. They’re each loopy. Do what you need. They’re each going to get each single headline on this planet. “Owes me intercourse” is slightly bit extra like throwing shade, and the opposite one’s extra flirtatious. It simply relies on what you need to accomplish with it.
KANYE: Yeah, I really feel like with my spouse, that she in all probability didn’t just like the “may nonetheless have intercourse” as a result of it might be like, what if she was on a TV present and mentioned “Me and Tom Brady may nonetheless have intercourse” or one thing?
TAYLOR: You must defend your relationship. Do what’s greatest. You simply had a child. You’re in the perfect place of your life. I wouldn’t ever advise you to f–okay with that. Simply choose no matter… It’s trigger and impact. One is gonna make individuals really feel a sure approach, and it’s gonna be a barely totally different emotion for the opposite. Nevertheless it’s not… It doesn’t matter to me. There’s not one which hurts my emotions and the opposite doesn’t.
KANYE: Yeah. It’s simply, once I’m pointing this gun, what I attempted to do in a different way than two years in the past, is like once I shoot a gun, I attempt to level it away from my face. So one is slightly bit extra flirtatious and simpler… I feel, so actually, meaning the dialog is basically: One is sort of a little bit higher for the general public and slightly bit much less good for the connection. One is slightly bit worse for the general public and higher for the connection.
TAYLOR: Yeah. I can hear it. Nevertheless it’s your targets, actually. I imply, you at all times simply go along with your intestine — clearly. However, um, superb. Ship it to me. I’m excited.
KANYE: All proper, cool. Thanks a lot.
TAYLOR: Superior. I’ll speak to you later.
KANYE: All proper, cool. Peace. Bye.
KANYE: [Talking to cameraman] We needed to get that on the report.
CAMERAMAN: I’m sorry. The battery on this factor died.
KANYE: It’s simply when it dies… You get some s— like Kanye speaking to Taylor Swift explaining that line? There’s gotta be three cameras on that one. We will’t miss one aspect.


It’s not clear if Taylor will deal with the matter within the close to future.
