In a newly released interview with Good Morning America, Kanye West has finally admitted that Sway had the answers all along. This comes almost 10 years after his infamous rant during a Sway In The Morning interview, where he tried to ridicule Sway over how to run his business ventures. It seems that Ye’s battles with Gap and Adidas have made him realize just how much Sway knows about the business world.
Back in 2013, West made an appearance on Sway In The Morning show and publicly lobbied for support from Fortune 500 companies — “Walt Disney! Nike! Google!” — to “stand up and let me create more,” as West tried to enforce that he was the “Number One most impactful artist of our generation.” Sway, in turn, recommended that West “empower yourself and do it yourself,” to which West responded — in one of his most viral moments, and that’s saying a lot — by yelling at the host, “You ain’t got the answers, Sway!”
And now here we are years later, and Kanye has officially taken a step back now saying, Sway did have the answers. With West now looking to drop his own goods after his breakup with Gap, ABC News’ Linsey Davis reminded him of that 2013 radio interview and the radio host’s advice to go the independent route.
“I will go ahead and say, Sway had the answer,” West admitted. “People are gonna be like, ‘No!”
