Kanye West remains one of the most controversial figures in the world. This team, Ye appeared on a new episode of the “Drink Champs” podcast, and didn’t hold his thoughts back at all, on a myriad of opinions.
Kanye West Calls Out Big Sean And John Legend
Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music record label has been dominant over the past decade. Ye ended up signing artists that went on stars such s Pusha T, Teyana Taylor, Big Sean, and John Legend. Sean and Legend are no longer with the label, and now, Ye bashed the two, in this new Drink Champs episode.
West Says The ‘Worst Thing’ He Ever Did Was Sign Sean
Regarding Big Sean, Kanye was asked to choose between Pusha T and Sean. He then proceeded to claim Sean’s name, and speak on him, in a negative light.
“Oh, I love this!! Let me tell you. I already decided that when I die, on my tombstone it’s gonna stay, ‘I deserve to be here because I signed Big Sean. I’m saying that the worst thing I’ve ever done is sign Big Sean.”

Kanye Says Big Sean And John Legend Got ‘Used By Democrats’
Kanye also brought in Legend’s name into the conversation, where he believes that the singer and Sean both got “used by Democrats.” This refers to when Kanye was running for president, last year. Ye even believes that both of his former artists are “sell-outs.”
“Nah man, they let that—I know this man mana, bro. You know what I’m saying? I changed this man family and both John Legend and Big Sean when I ran for office got used quick by the Democrats to combat they boy that actually changed they life. And that’s some sell-out sh*t and I don’t rock with neither of them and I need my apology.”
John Legend Recently Spoke Out On Kanye And Donald Trump Being Similar
Kanye’s comments about Legend may be as a result of what Legend recently had to say, about Ye. In a new interview with author, Danny Golberg, Legend spoke on Kanye’s 2020 presidential run, and believes that Kanye likes former president Donald Trump, due to both of them being narcissists.
“I don’t see Kanye as a political person at all. We never talked about politics. He had never voted before 2020.He saw in Trump the kind of underdog narcissist that he sees in himself.”
Back in 2o18, Legend even reached out to Kanye, about being concerned about his support for Trump. Ye even went on to post the screenshot of that text message conversation. Ever since then, it appears that Legend and Ye’s relationship ended up turning sour.
“Hey it’s JL. I hope you’ll reconsider aligning yourself with Trump,” said Legend, at the time. “You’re way too powerful and influential to endorse who he is and what he stands for. As you know, what you say really means something to your fans. They are loyal to you and respect your opinion.”
