Ye Stirs The Pot On ‘Drink Champs’ – Slanders Big Sean & Just Blaze (Both Respond), Still A Proud Trump Supporter, Says Kim Is ‘Still His Wife’

Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) sat down with N.O.R.E. & DJ EFN for a new “Drink Champs” podcast episode. During their chat, the Chi-town native shaded Big Sean & Just Blaze, touched on his political beliefs (yep, he’s still reppin’ for Trump), said his estranged wife Kim Kardashian is still his wife, and he also revealed he left his longtime label, Def Jam.

 

Highlights inside…

N.O.R.E. warned us – Ye was coming!

And to everyone’s surprise, he actually showed up. He rarely misses an oppotunity to stir (and smoke) the pot when he knows he’ll be among superfans…

Kanye West is no longer Kanye West. Last month, a Los Angeles judge approved Kanye’s request to legally change his name from Kanye Omari West to just Ye. No middle or last name.

So yeah, Ye sat down with Noreaga and DJ EFN to chop it up on “Drink Champs,” a podcast that also airs on Diddy’s REVOLT. It was like watching old friends catch up. Ye was seemingly happy and N.O.R.E. was giddy throughout the interview as they both sipped Henny and sparked up blunts.

When asked if he would do a VERZUZ battle, he joked he would need four people to go up against him at one time. When asked if he would do one with Jay-Z:

“Nah, cause that’s my boss. I would never go against Jay,” he said.

The G.O.O.D. Music founder slammed his former artist Big Sean during the interview. He said signing Big Sean to his record label was the “the worst thing I’ve ever done.”

“When I die, on my tombstone it’s gonna say, ‘I deserve to be here because I signed Big Sean,'” he said.

Ye also went in on singer John Legend, who has been vocal about his disgust with the rapper for supporting Donald Trump. Turns out, Ye was pissed at both of them for their lack of support during his 2020 presidential run.

“I know this man [Big Sean] mama, bro. You know what I’m saying? I’ve changed this man family,” he said. “And both John Legend and Big Sean, when I ran for office, got used quick by the Democrats to come at they boy that actually changed they life. And that’s some sellout sh*t, and I don’t rock with neither of them, and I need my apologies.”

Peep the clip below:

Big Sean caught wind of Ye’s comments and wondered why his former boss didn’t say what he had to say to his face when they were around each other AFTER he taped the interview:

“I just got asked to be on the next Drink Champs so I’m assuming Ye talkin crazy,” he tweeted.

And he came with receipts:

Bloop.

“I can’t wait to go on drink champs now!!!,” Big Sean, who recently left G.O.O.D. Music, tweeted.

During the show’s “Quicktime with Slime” segment, Ye was asked which producer was superior: Swizz Beatz or Just Blaze?

“Well, Swizz Beatz, definitely, because Just Blaze is a copycat, you know. He get credit for The Blueprint, and I did the first half of The Blueprint, and he just copied my half. I mean look—look where I’m at today and look where he at today. So that should show you…”

Peep the clip above.

Word got back to Just Blaze, so he took to social media to react and served up a mature and civil response:

In a message posted to his Instagram, Just Blaze said when Ye spoke on about him during the interview did not align with “previous interactions” they’ve shared. And he also said he’s happy for what the Jesus Is King rapper has been able to accomplish during his career.

“Respectfully, I’m happy for him and the fact that he has succeeded in the ways he wanted to, but not everyone wants to be where he is,” he wrote. “Everyone’s definition of personal success is a bit different. I’m quite happy where I am creatively, with my family, and my life in general. We were a part of history together and I wish him well and continued success.”

Good for him.

Despite Ye & Kim Kardashina’s ongoing divorce, he still refers to her as his wife.

While talking about Kim K helping him organize his things, he referred to the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” alum as “my wife, because she’s still my wife, ain’t no paperwork.”

Oh. You’ll recall, Kim K filed for divorce from the Grammy winner in February after six years of marriage and four children. So, there’s paprwork – it just hasn’t been finalized yet…IF they both decide to go through with it.

As for his political beliefs, he’s still a proud Donald Trump/MAGA supporter.

“I still got a red hat on today. I’ll let y’all know that. I might not got it on, but I’ll let y’all know where I stand,” he said.

No surprise there.

While talking about his 10 contracts with Def Jam Records, he revealed he’s no longer signed to Def Jam after 17 years and 10 solo studio albums. DONDA was his last album that was released on Def Jam Records. Last September, Ye took to Twitter to air out his frustrations with UMG (which owns Def Jam). You can catch up HERE.

The “Heartless” rapper also touched on cancel culture and why he’s not phased by it.

“They can’t cancel us all…I love it, I’m above it. I’m running to get canceled,” he said.

During the rollout of DONDA, Ye caught backlash for bringing out DaBaby and Marilyn Manson during his album listening party in Chicago.

“All the #Me Too—like, when I sit next to Marilyn Manson and DaBaby, right after both of them got canceled, for five songs, you know, it’s like they can’t cancel a song,” said West. “They’ll hit you with the accusations or somebody who you was with 10 years ago. And also, there’s women who’ve been through very serious things, pulled in alleys against they will—that’s different than a hug, but it’s classified as the same thing. It’s power and politics. You know, power-hungry maniacs and just control. This is 1984 mind-control we’re in.”

Sighs.
