Kanye West slams Barack Obama in interview ?

The ‘Bound 2? rapper hit out at the Commander-in-Chief,
insisting he can’t do anything to ‘effect change’ without
‘money’ – though he then went on to proclaim ‘genius’ to
be ‘extremely cheap’.
Asked about the president in an interview with
Power106FM, he ranted: ‘You can’t effect change from
inside the White House like that …You gotta have the

‘Good ideas usually aren’t connected to money as much
…Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap.’
Kanye West – who has 12-month-old daughter North
with wife Kim Kardashian – then went on to warn his
critics not to slam him as he is on a ‘mission from God’.
He said: ‘Don’t worry about how I’m saying what I’m

‘You do not want to go against the power. I’m working

do. I’m here to help. I’m going to apply all the blessings

president likes to use that type of thing just to be down.’
‘People were fine with me being everyone’s punching

that’s going on… just say you hate Kanye and there’s
going be 30 other people who say they hate Kanye.’
‘’I’m not going to mention him anymore, I’m past that,
that’s out my thoughts. That’s lowering my priority of
thinking at this point.’

Obama previously spoke out about the ‘New slaves’
hitmaker to urge young people not to look to the wealth of
the rapper and his now-wife as an example of success,
and branded him a ‘jackass’ after he interrupted Taylor
Swift’s 2009 MTV Music Awards acceptance speech.
