Sway Responds To Kanye West Rant, He Did Give Me My First TV
We already know that Kanye West wasn’t very happy about being ranked number 7 on MTV’s Hottest MCs in the Game list, and now Sway has issued a response to the matter.
Sway Calloway confirms that Kanye West was telling the truth about giving Sway his first TV, but he goes on to state that there is more than meets the eye with this story, and he’s ready to explain.
“That very TV, today, I still have that TV he’s talking about,” Sway explained. “Yeah, but it’s a lot about this story that Kanye West did not reveal. There’s more to the story ladies and gentleman. Typically, I don’t bring stuff to the surface. I protect relationships. Today, I’m going to bring that very TV that Kanye West was talking about to Rap Fix. And I’mma sit it on the set and let that TV co-host the show with me and I’m gonna tell the entire story of my first TV courtesy of Kanye West.”
Sway also took some time to explain exactly how the voting process works for the Hottest MC list, revealing that he doesn’t even vote at all.
“I don’t vote. I created the list. I created the whole concept and I thought after time it wouldn’t be right for me to vote for this very reason,” Sway explained. “What you’re hearing Kanye say. Because I’ve been so apart of a lot of different careers with a lot of artists, including Kanye, that I know when I vote people get really emotional about how I may feel…This is how we came out. We averaged out everybody’s list and made it one master list. People came up with their own ideas of who their top 10 is. We made it into one master list and then we started debating. Not everyone on the table agreed with every number of every artist.”
