After releasing his two-part “Drink Champs” interview with Kanye West, N.O.R.E. claims he’s accomplished something that no one else has been able to do. On Sunday (Nov. 14), the podcaster said that he altered views and opinions of the Chicago star with his viral conversation.
While Kanye’s interview with “Drink Champs” trended on Twitter and broke viewership records for REVOLT, his unfiltered views on various topics that occurred over the course of his two-decade-long career were met with mixed reviews followers and some of the individuals he name-dropped in the conversation.
Big Sean, for example, was caught by surprise after hearing West say that signing him to G.O.O.D. Music was “the worst thing I ever done.” Just Blaze said that he was “confused and disappointed” to learn that West thought he was a “copycat,” and Talib Kweli questioned why the Donda emcee never told him that he wasn’t fond of his rapping during their multiple encounters.
Beanie Sigel, however, was happy to be publicly be raised by West. After Ye credited him for coining the Yeezy nickname and offered to cut him a check for the contribution, the State Property star said that the producer owes him “nothing but love” and consideration for a possible business venture.
“I’m not even thinking about a [monetary] number,” he told TMZ. “But I would love to do some business where I can earn some money, ‘cause I’m an earner. I never was the type to take just for a handout.”
N.O.R.E’s claim about his “Drink Champs” interview with Kanye is not the first time the rapper has showered himself with his own flowers. Just last month, he boasted about his accomplishments in the rap game, specifically in the year 1998. “I was the hottest rapper in the world! I could’ve held out, but I wanted a million dollars,” N.O.R.E. said on the “I Am Athlete” podcast. “In 1998? Who was it? Me, DMX, Big Pun, Cam’ron,” he went on. “I was the hottest at the time I signed.”
