Kanye West has had many viral moments. He is a viral machine. However, his Sway interview back in 2013 is without a doubt one of his greatest viral moments. The now legendary “YOU AIN’T GOT THE ANSWERS SWAY!” outburst is one of the most iconic interview moments in the history of journalism. If you have never seen the classic Sway x Kanye interview in reference, see it in its entirety below.
Now nine years later Kanye is changing his tune. After deals gone bad with Gap and adidas, Ye is now backtracking and claiming Sway did indeed have the answer all along. Sway suggested to Kanye back in 2013 to “take a few steps back and do it yourself” meaning to go independent and sell apparel to consumers directly which Ye now intends to do.
Watch Ye’s Good Morning America soundbite where he confesses Sway was right all along below.
