Kanye West Reveals He Scrapped His New Album After Slavery Controversy

‘We just sat there and really honed in on the words because now it’s all headlines, it’s like every bar can be used,’ the rapper says in a new interview.

Kanye West scrapped an entire album after his ill-advised TMZ interview, during which he suggested African-Americans chose to be slaves and confessed he was hooked on opioids.

The rapper came under fire for stating 400 years of slavery was “a choice”, a comment that led to a live confrontation with a TMZ staffer, who made it clear he didn’t appreciate Kanye’s remarks and was disappointed he made them.

“But then (on) Tuesday morning, they come in, and they lost their job… That’s why God put that on me at age 40. I had never been diagnosed until… 39 years old. I think everybody’s got something…. but like I said, on the album… that it’s not a disability… it’s a superpower.”
