LOS ANGELES - When Yeezus calls, you answer!
Kanye West has been staying out of the spotlight for the past year after making headlines for the cancellation of his Saint Pablo Tour and hospitalization. This happened after his wife Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint. Plus, his friendship with Jay-Z fell apart so he’s had a pretty tough year.
Thankfully, it looks like Kanye West is acting the perfect amount of strange to make us feel like he’s back to his old self.
Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley told the story of receiving an unexpected call from Yeezus.
“12:30 at night and I was just like, ‘Hello?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, this is ‘Ye.’ I kinda just kept trying to put it together. Long story short: He was just like, ‘Man, come out to L.A. whenever you’re out in L.A. and we’ll get together.’
[He said], ‘I just want to let you know that I admire you. I really like what you do. I hate to see that you’re underrated.’ Just going through these things like he actually watches me play. That’s what I was thinking in my head, ‘He knows a lot about me.’ He wasn’t reading off a paper or anything. He was just like, ‘Man, I just think that you can be up here, and they just don’t see you like that.’ I was just like, ‘Man, I 100 percent — I’m with you. I understand. What can we do? Help me.'”
Alright ‘Ye, now get back to the studio so we can all get the pep talk you just gave Mike Conley!
