Paul McCartney Talks Collaborating With ‘Crazy’Kanye West, Says ‘He’s a Monster’Who ‘Comes Up With Fantastic Stuff’

Yeezy’s most significant fan!

Sir Paul McCartney is a massive Kanye West supporter, despite the rapper’s controversial persona.

Throughout the BBC Radio four Mastertapes series. the 73-12 months-outdated Beatles legend opened up about collaborating with West for the hit song “FourFiveSeconds,” which also characteristics Rihanna. “I love Kanye,” McCartney said. “People say he’s eccentric, which you’d have to agree with, but he’s a monster, yeah.

He’s a crazy guy that comes up with great stuff.

He inspires me.” McCartney exposed that they’d worked with each other briefly before West spent some time on the song and came back with drastic modifications. “You just work with him and you depart him for a minor although and allow it marinate and hope he will get back to you,” the British star mentioned. McCartney also had a hand in the beat for West’s song “All Day.” “It’s a excellent record, but when I got it, and I heard it, really a handful of people said, ‘You can not be linked with this. There’s like forty ‘N-phrases,’” he recalled. “I said, ‘Yeah, but it is Kanye and he’s speaking about an urban generation who makes use of that word in a totally different way,’ so I was really pleased with it.” Yeezy supporters also hilariously baffled McCartney for a new artist back in January 2015, when he collaborated with West for the rapper’s song “Only One.” Of course McCartney has been close to for decades, first as a member of the iconic group The Beatles just before going solo. “I was depressed at the time,” McCartney advised BBC Radio of when The Beatles split in 1970. “It was quite depressing because you have been breaking from your lifestyle-long friends.”
