Kanye west fears kim Kardashian may divorce him after racist comments on black people

The rapper opened up about his fears

Trouble in Paradise: West expressed fears over his marriage
Trouble in Paradise: West expressed fears over his marriage

Kanye West has revealed that he feared wife Kim Kardashian would divorce him over his controversial “slavery is a choice” comments.

The No Mistakes rapper told how he had doubts over the future of his marriage following his social media outburst in a new interview with The New York Times.

West explained that he had a “real conversation” exploring the possibility of divorce following the controversial comments.

Earlier this year, the 41-year-old came under fire after saying that “400 years of slavery is a choice.”

He made the comments during an interview in the TMZ newsroom, which was met by some significant backlash.

Speaking about the conversation with Kardashian, he explained: “There was a moment where I felt like after TMZ, maybe a week after that, I felt like the energy levels were low.

“I called different family members and was asking, you know, ‘Was Kim thinking about leaving me after TMZ?’ So that was a real conversation.”

At the time West made the remarks, TMZ staff member Van Lathan was quick to stand up to West about the view he pegged as “free-thought.

“The reason why I feel like that is because Kanye, you’re entitled to your opinion, you’re entitled to your thoughts, you’re entitled to believe whatever you want but there is fact and real world, real life consequence behind everything you just said.

Lathan said: “I actually don’t think you’re thinking anything. I think what you’re doing is the absence of thought.”

West was quick to apologise for “hurting” Lathan, however, he was met with words of warning form the staff member who told him to be “responsible” because his “voice is too big.”

Kanye West’s 10 greatest ever tracks ranked

10. Jesus Walks
1/10 10. Jesus Walks The College Dropout saw Kanye arrive, fully formed, ready to take the hip hop world by the scruff of the neck. The remarkably assured debut showcased his talent (not to mention enormous ego) and featured killer tracks like Jesus Walks. One of the most urgent, strident moments on the LP, the track is full of the kind of messianic imagery that would come to feature heavily in material throughout his career. A mark of what was to come.
9. Love Lockdown
2/10 9. Love Lockdown 808s & Heartbreaks marked a pretty dramatic departure for Kanye, with the rapper stripping things back and dialing up the auto-tune for the 2008 album. The deeply personal and introspective work was influenced by the death of his mother and the end of the rapper’s long-term relationship with fiancé Alexis Phifer. Heartbreaks remains his most candid record to date and Love Lockdown is a clear highlight. The track showcases his talent for songcraft and highlights a tender side to the performer. While the album is arguably one of the most unsung of Kanye’s career, the production values would come to inform the new wave of commercial hip hop that followed too.
8. N**** In Paris
3/10 8. N**** In Paris Jay-Z collaboration N***** In Paris marked one of the biggest successes of Kanye’s career in 2011, achieving ubiquitous radio play despite never being released as a single. Inspired by the pair’s experiences at Paris fashion week and the excess and gauche wealth associated with it (“I ball so hard muh’f**** wanna fine me… What’s fifty grand to a muh’f**** like me”). It’s equally irreverent as it is incandescent, referencing the Olsen Twins and sampling Will Ferrell comedy Blades of Glory.
7. Hey Mama
4/10 7. Hey Mama A standout track from 2006 album Late Registration, Hey Mama pays a moving tribute to Kanye’s mother Donda West. The track is packed with endearing lines like “You work late nights just to keep on the lights/Mommy got me training wheels so I can keep on my bike,” and the emotional candour is pretty impossible to resist. Donda sadly passed away in 2007 following complications from a heart attack. Fans paid a touching tribute of their own in 2017, when they streamed the track 700,000 times to mark the 10th anniversary of her death on ‘Hey Mama Day’.
6. Real Friends
5/10 6. Real Friends 2016’s Life of Pablo was a mixed bag to say the least. It’s an infuriating and frequently impenetrable work, often overpopulated with disparate musical ideas. Occasionally though inspiration and beauty emerge from the chaos — Real Friends is one of those moments. The track transports the listener into a world of insubstantial, throwaway celeb culture, while also contemplating themes of loneliness and existentialism (“Spillin’ free wine, now my tux is ruined/In town for a day, what the f*** we doin’?”). The Kanye we encounter here is oddly isolated and vulnerable and the track makes for one of the most compelling moments in his entire back catalogue.
5. Homecoming
6/10 5. Homecoming While Daft Punk-sampling Stronger might have brought more commercial success, Homecoming forms the highpoint of Kanye’s more pop-centric album Graduation. The simple, jaunty piano chord sequence and understated central hook is performed by Coldplay’s Chris Martin, who co-wrote the track with West during an impromptu jam at London’s Abbey Road Studios. The song, as well as fellow album tracks Flashing Lights, Can’t Tell Me Nothing and Good Life launched Kanye to new levels of popularity.
4. Gorgeous
7/10 4. Gorgeous Built around a simple, downbeat chorus refrain, Gorgeous represents one of the starkest tracks in Kanye’s career. Lyrically the song is concerned with themes of racial oppression and inequality (“At the airport they check all through my bag/and tell me that it’s random), with anger bringing out some of the most eloquent and expressive Kanye verses ever put to tape. It’s also notable for featuring the vocal talents of Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon and Kid Cudi, who is preparing to collaborate once again with West on another upcoming album due for release on June 8.
3. Through The Wire
8/10 3. Through The Wire Anyone hearing Through The Wire — his first ever single released in 2003 — knew that they were dealing with a serious talent. Kanye unleashes his flow over a breezy groove, sampling Chaka Khan’s Through The Fire along the way. Staggeringly, the song was recorded while Kanye had his jaw wired shut following a car accident in 2002. Despite his physical limitations at the time, it was the sound of a once-in-a-generation star being born.
2. New Slaves
9/10 2. New Slaves Kanye famously paid homage to grime with a fiery (literally) performance at the 2015 BRIT awards and the genre’s influence can be heard on the effervescent New Slaves. The central synth hook recalls the harder edges of classic albums like Boy In Da Corner, while the urgent and vociferous lyrics, fuelled by palpable sense of historical and personal injustice, put Kanye’s delivery front and centre. The way the track flicks suddenly to the expansive, triumphant second section is indicative of Yeezus’s restless creativity, with the pinballing musical ideas never letting the listener settle. One of ye’s very finest moments.
1. Runaway
10/10 1. Runaway Runaway sees Kanye raise a toast to the “d***** bags”, the “***holes” and the “scumbags”, representing the greatest anti-anthem in the rapper’s oeuvre. The track sees him examine his public persona, consider his reputation in the media and reflect on his high-profile controversies — not least the incident with Taylor Swift at the MTV Media awards in 2009. The simple, descending piano motif at the heart of the track is the perfect accompaniment to West’s reflective, self-criticising verses and Pusha T — currently taking over the internet with his Drake diss track The Story of Adidon — also makes a stunning contribution. As the nine minute track plays out with a combination of urgent strings and vocals saturated in auto-tune and distortion, it’s clear that West has created something truly special. It’s the standout moment in the career of a divisive but always unmissable musical talent.
10. Jesus Walks
1/10 10. Jesus Walks The College Dropout saw Kanye arrive, fully formed, ready to take the hip hop world by the scruff of the neck. The remarkably assured debut showcased his talent (not to mention enormous ego) and featured killer tracks like Jesus Walks.
