Calloway, who was obviously and rightfully agitated, fired back with: “You ain’t gotta turn up. This ain’t no f—in’ show … I’m talking to you as a homie,” he said. “I’m tryna understand your world because when I go to your concert, I’m curious about what you’re saying … You ain’t gotta turn up on me. Man to man, dog…f— these mics, we can turn all this s–t off. You an’t gotta do this, it’s cool. I love you bro … Don’t try to embarrass us.”
After a while, West cooled down and apologized before likening the verbal squabble to an argument between slaves; he then explained why he was buggin’.
“The thing that compresses me is time versus money,” West explained. “Integrity, money and relevance, because as I work on clothing more, I’m not rapping as much. [If] I’m not rapping as much…I’m not having as much finances, I’m losing relevancy. The relevancy is part of my power that allows my brand to be big.”
