Kanye West’s Amazing ‘Storytellers’ Episode Gets Abridged

February 27th, 2009 // 14 Comments

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?

    why are black men coming to chris brown’s defense? Why any gender, race, religion, etc. defend a man who beats on a woman? On the way to the grammy’s–one of the biggest nights in their lives (not that jsut any ole night will do to beat on someone). Give me a break ass—-.

    LeslieD, please don’t generalize. Not all black men are like this. Many MEN (no qualification on race here) would make comments like this because many MEN are blind, chauvinistic a-holes. I personally know some black men who frown on men who would lay their hands on a woman.

    Perhaps the word Mr. Bill Flanagan was attempting to muster was “arrogant”, not “amazing”, as you have rightfully presumed. I just dont think his music is mind-blowing, and I dont get the obsession around him. Kanye West is at best, mediocre. Sure, he’s probably an amazing “producer,” but ebonics is not “the voice of this generation”, atleast not mine!

    Ok you say his music is mediocre. I see how that is an opinion but it can be facted that it really isn’t. check out the album sells. You say he is arrogant, which yea makes it seem wrong, but put it in a sense of high self-esteem or self-confident then it doesn’t seem so bad.
