While most of Kanye West’s peers tout him as a “genius”, legendary Compton rapper/producer DJ Quik doesn’t agree.
During a recent interview for Noah TV, he opened up about his thoughts on Kanye’s latest album, The Life of Pablo, essentially saying it doesn’t live up to the hype.
“Kanye so scared, he don’t even know what to do with The Life of Pablo. Let’s just keep this sh*t all the way f*cking 100,” Quik says.
It appears Quik is referring to Kanye changing the album title multiple times before release, as well as the consistent updates after its initial release… and the rollout in general, being that he said it would only be available on TIDAL and no where else, only to change his mind weeks later.
Later, the rap legend goes on to say that Kanye’s fame has surpassed his talent, before taking a swipe at his marriage to Kim Kardashian.
“His celebrity supersedes his talent right now? Yes. Come on, he’s a Kardashian now, what the f*ck?” Quik says. “This is a challenge. This isn’t a diss, it’s just a challenge. Make your best music, because fans aren’t stupid.”
