Kanye West Says Farrakhan Told Him Not To Apologize


(AllHipHop News) Kanye West seemingly threw some shade towards Jay Z, Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jordan, as he discussed a conversation with Minister Louis Farrakhan.

In new concert footage, Kanye says that he spoke with Farrakhan and was told that he should not apologize about comments he made about Jewish people.

“When I talked to Farrakhan the other night, he told me not to apologize. I ain’t finna apologize,” he said from a concert. “What I wanna tell y’all is that, uh, I’m not like Jay Z. That’s my big brother. I look up to him. And I’m not like Oprah. That’s my big sister. And I’m not like Michael Jordan.”

Exactly what Kanye was trying to say is unknown, even though contextually, it doesn’t sound flattering.

The comments come on the heels of Kanye West stating that “Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people.” in an interview. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) chided the comments and called them “classic anti-Semitism.”
