Kanye West SLAMS ex-friend John Legend as a 'sell-out' in podcast interview after singer called rapper a 'narcissist'
KANYE West fired back at his former friend John Legend for calling him a "narcissist" when discussing his political views.
The Voice coach made the comment in reference to the rapper's support for former President Donald Trump.
Kayne clapped back at the singer's statement while appearing on the Drink Champs podcast with Philip Lewis.
During the interview, the Donda rapper dissed the All of Me singer along with Big Sean while reflecting on his decision to run for office.
"Both John Legend and Big Sean when I ran for office, got used quick by the Democrats to come at their boy who actually changed their life."
He continued: "And that's some sell-out s**t. And I don't rock with neither of them. And I need my apologies, I ain't saying they're going to change but n*****s they scared."
Earlier in the interview, the Chicago native also made a remark about rapper Big Sean saying: "The worst thing I ever done was sign Big Sean."
Big Sean followed up with a response to Kanye, tweeting: “Was just wit this man, he ain’t say none of that!!! And this was after the interview! I’m dying laughing at you @kanyewest"
While John hasn't mentioned the dig, he did air out his feelings earlier in the week about his former friend.
While talking to author Danny Goldberg for his book Bloody Crossroads 2020: Arts, Entertainment, and Resistance to Trump, John revealed why he thinks Kanye, 44, supported Donald Trump during his political campaign.
The All of Me singer said: “I don't see Kanye as a political person at all. We never talked about politics. He had never voted before 2020.”
He further theorized why he believes Kanye supported the controversial president, stating: “He saw in Trump the kind of underdog narcissist that he sees in himself.”
Kanye also took a swipe at long-time nemesis Drake during his sit-down with the podcast hosts.
The rappers have been feuding for years over Drake's insinuations that he once slept with Kanye's ex Kim Kardashian.
Kanye took the opportunity to touch on their beef, commenting: "When people went to go get Hitler, they didn't go straight for Hitler, they set up fake tanks, they set up this…
"So [Drake] gotta do stuff like light a fire blocks down the street from you.
"He gonna go and DM every single girl in your family, every single girl around your family… all your n****'s girls."
The Yeezy mogul went on: "So it's like away games and home games. This is professional rap. This is the first time we in a place of professional rap.
"If he throws out a ball right here… only you and I know what's going on. It's all psychological."
Elsewhere in the packed interview, Kanye insisted he is still with Kim, before revealing he boasted on a group text to Kim, Jay Z, Drake, and other notable stars that he's "worth more than all of you combined".
Kim and Kanye were married for nearly seven years before the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star filed for divorce
The former couple share four kids together: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
