After making an unexpected appearance at the Odd Future Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival a week ago, Kanye West appeared on Philadelphia’s Hot 107.9 this morning and offered his admiration for Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator. Kanye gave props to Tyler for his ability to clearly convey ideas in his music videos.
“When [Tyler] has an idea it just—exactly what’s in his head comes out,” Yeezy said “He can say it really clearly, concisely… I like how that man can just get his point across and how he has that skill set. He knows what he wants to do and that’s the reason why the universe responds to him like that. He just threw a carnival in L.A. where 10,000 people came out.”
Also in the interview, Kanye also addressed the controversy regarding his use of the Confederate flag on his tour merchandise, criticism from President Barack Obama, his concept for the upcoming “Bound 2″ video, his admiration of Ma$e and why he compares himself to variety of legendary creatives such as Walt Disney and Steve Jobs.
