Kanye West slams Barack Obama in interview ?
The â€˜Bound 2? rapper hit out at the Commander-in-Chief,
insisting he canâ€™t do anything to â€˜effect changeâ€™ without
â€˜moneyâ€™ â€“ though he then went on to proclaim â€˜geniusâ€™ to
be â€˜extremely cheapâ€™.
Asked about the president in an interview with
Power106FM, he ranted: â€˜You canâ€™t effect change from
inside the White House like that â€¦You gotta have the
â€˜Good ideas usually arenâ€™t connected to money as much
â€¦Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap.â€™
Kanye West â€“ who has 12-month-old daughter North
with wife Kim Kardashian â€“ then went on to warn his
critics not to slam him as he is on a â€˜mission from Godâ€™.
He said: â€˜Donâ€™t worry about how Iâ€™m saying what Iâ€™m

president again as he felt the politician â€“ who has
criticised the rapper on a number of occasions â€“ was using
his name to be â€˜downâ€™ with young people.
He said: â€˜I just think that weâ€™re pop icons, and the
president likes to use that type of thing just to be down.â€™
â€˜People were fine with me being everyoneâ€™s punching
bag for about five years â€“ â€˜This is the person we love to
hate, so if you want to distract people from everything
thatâ€™s going onâ€¦ just say you hate Kanye and thereâ€™s
going be 30 other people who say they hate Kanye.â€™
â€˜â€™Iâ€™m not going to mention him anymore, Iâ€™m past that,
thatâ€™s out my thoughts. Thatâ€™s lowering my priority of
thinking at this point.â€™
Obama previously spoke out about the â€˜New slavesâ€™
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 â€˜jackassâ€™ after he interrupted Taylor
Swiftâ€™s 2009 MTV Music Awards acceptance speech.
