President Obama Calls Kanye West A "Talented Jacka$$"

 

It's been nearly three years since Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards, but some things are never forgotten.

 

President Obama called Kanye a jacka$$ at the time and not much has changed since September 2009.

 

Obama repeated the same statement to David Samuels of The Atlantic during a brief interview recently when asked which rapper he preferred most, West or Jay-Z.

 

“Jay-Z,” Obama says. “Although I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.” 


When reminded that he once referred to Yeezy as a donkey's rear end, Obama said his feelings hadn't changed.


“He is a jacka$$,” Obama continued. “But he’s talented.

Kanye is a pop tart with a great musical gift but he isn't a great representation for the CHI. When I think of a great rep for the CHI Common comes to mind not Ye! If you want that that real life hardcore street rap from the CHI look no further than LEP Bogus Boys it don't get no realer than them comimg out the city of wind!
