Audio allegedly featuring a furiously bitter Kanye West, said to be taken from the night he hijacked the stage from Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMA Awards, has made its way online. In the recording, the person alleged to be K. Widdles continues to rag on Swift, telling a table full of friends that his mother “died for this fame shit” and talking about the injustice of having to sit through two Pink songs.
According to Gawker, the leaked recoding (below) was made while Yeezy was out for dinner with a group of musicians at the Corner Bistro in New York’s West Village after the awards ceremony. No-one else present has been identified, though Ye has confirmed that Mos Def was in his company after the awards that evening.
On the tape, the man says that his ability to write a verse in two days somehow equates to the injustice of Tay-Tay winning an award over Beyoncé:
“I’m pushing the envelope! I wrote my fuckin’ ‘Run This Town’ verse for a fuckin’ month! When I heard Eminem‘s verse on the Drake shit, I went back and rewrote my shit for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I fuckin’ care! You know what I’m saying? And that’s what I’m saying. Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé. As long as I’m alive! And if I’m alive, kill me then!”
He then claimed that his mother died “for this fame shit”, adding, “Fuck MTV”, before whining about Pink being asked to perform twice:
“What the fuck was Pink performing? Don’t nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the fuck Pink perform two songs and I didn’t even get asked to perform ‘Heartless’. ‘Heartless’ is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don’t know that Pink song! But I noticed that she’s pink!”
We can’t say for sure if this audio is for real but it sure as hell sounds like the one and only Yeezus. Take a listen to the full audio below and make up your own mind.
