Kanye West’s Amazing ‘Storytellers’ Episode Gets Abridged

Rapper Kanye West had too much fun telling stories on his recently filmed episode of VH1’s Storytellers telling stories and many of his rambling comments had to be edited for time. The many subjects West touched upon included Chris Brown, O.J. Simpson, Radiohead, Michael Jackson and Michael Phelps. Here are some quotes that were either shortened or cut completely.

On Chris Brown:

“Can’t we give Chris a break? … I know I make mistakes in life.”

On Michael Jackson and Michael Phelps:
“Michael Jackson, amazing. Michael Phelps, amazing … He’s a real f—in’ person; he makes mistakes.”

On O.J. Simpson:
“O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?”

In addition, West performed 14 songs and confessed that Thom Yorke of Radiohead, a favorite band of West’s, had snubbed him backstage at the Grammys. According to Kanye, “So when he performed at the Grammys, I sat the f— down.”

According to executive producer of the series Bill Flanagan, “A lot of the stories that Kanye told went long. I tried to get to the essence of his comments.”

We can help sum it all up. “Amazing,” perhaps, is the word he’s looking for?
