5 Kanye West Quotes From Made in America About Love, Hate and Kimye
PHILADELPHIA - Forty-five minutes before Kanye West opened his Made In America headlining set with "Black Skinhead," electro house musician Steve Aoki amped up festival-goers with a fitting remix of The Chainsmokers' "Kanye" song, which features the lyric, "I want to be like Kanye, I'll be the king of me always." Midway through "Runaway," an autotuned Kanye gave a rousing 5-minute speech that touched many subjects: what he perceived as hateful criticism from media, the vision he has of everyone loving each other, as well as his public relationship with wife Kim Kardashian. "I've got love for everybody in the media and all the tabloids - I know everybody is doing their job," he assured the audience. "Before we go to the next song, I want people to realize what we do is we put our love, our heart, our pain, our struggle, our story, our lives in until 3 a.m. every night in the studio for this." "I'm not making it a black or white thing right now, but I'm telling you if you see a black guy anywhere, he had to work 12 times as hard, excuse me. So we're not going to have any black comedians going up on stage spoofing the people who are working hard to open doors not only for black people, but for any creators - anybody who wants to add a contribution to the world - beauty, truth, creativity, positivity and just helping the next man out with love, with love, with love, with love, with love." "There are so many [more] people at this stage tonight dancing to this music than anybody who has ever wrote something negative, so don't believe none of that sh*t, and just believe that sh*t when we drop it - when Travis Scott drops his sh*t, when Big Sean drops his sh*t, when [Lil'] Wayne drops his sh*t, when Kendrick [Lamar] drops his sh*t, when Frank Ocean drops his sh*t." "I ain't going to go on too long tonight because the last thing I want to do is f*ck up the curfew ... for my big homie Jay Z, my brother," Kanye said. "So don't worry, Hov, with love, with love, with love, with love. So when y'all leave tonight, I want you to leave with love."
