Apparently, Kanye West is tired of the world criticizing him for sticking his foot in his mouth. The rapper went on a 27–minute–long rant at his Toronto show, saying he'll stop speaking negatively for "six months, at least."
His oddly–musical stream of conscious described how West is looking forward to 2014, and even 2024. "I decided to completely focus everything in 2014 on all the new ideas and all the creative outlets," he said.
The rapper referenced the disagreements he has had with Nike, and promised to move forward from it with a positive attitude. "I'm not [going to] ever bring up Nike again. And the only way I'll bring them up is in a positive light," he said. "Because I actually appreciate the opportunity to have been able to make my own shoe with them, and if I didn't have the opportunity I wouldn't have my deal I have with Adidas right now."
West has become well–known in recent years for his controversial actions and statements. While he isn't willing to change who he is, he noted his need to keep it quiet for a while. He explained that his fans are one big family and he is the "crazy cousin." He joked that every family needs someone to play that role.
His rant might have gone a little overboard, but his sentiments seem positive. "I just really feel like I want to be expressive with my work, with my music. I want to be expressive with this opportunity I have with Adidas, and just go home to my family," he told his audience.
Will Kanye manage to keep his mouth shut in early 2014? We'll believe it when we see it.
