Arsenio Hall Is Not Feeling The Kanye Comparison

In a recent interview Kanye West likend himself to Arsenio Hall stating that his rants could possibly lead to an ill fate if he were not in such a secure financial standing. However, Arsenio is not feeling the comparison and is adamant that Kanye has got it all wrong.

“I could use my voice but what’d happen if y’all don’t buy no other albums? People gonna say ‘Oh he like Arsenio Hall and he was turning up to much and now you fired.’ But when you got money can’t nobody fire you,” Kanye said in an interview with Power 105.

Arsenio responded stating that Yeezy was wrong about Arsenio losing his former show and the host also added that he’s not down with the “New Slave” term either, “I hate the word slave used in songs. Get the f**k out of here. Do you know what that word is? Do you know what that word is all about? Nobody can use slave in pop culture. If you in the music business you should not f**k with that word. Too serious an era, too serious a problem in America. There is no one that is free to move around this country that should use the word slave. Do you know what it meant to slaves?”
