In an upcoming interview that will air on Trevor Nelson’s BBC radio show next week, Jay-Z once again addressed Kanye West’s antics during the 2009 VMA’s but also spoke on rapper 50 Cent.
During the interview, Jay-Z stated that he believed was rude for snatching the microphone from country singer Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech for Best Female Video.
West felt the award should have went to Jay-Z‘s wife, Beyonce Knowles for her hit video “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).”
Although Jay-Z agreed that West was rude he stated that Kanye West “wasn’t wrong.”
Jay-Z seemed to become a little irritated during the interview, when Nelson suggested that Kanye was picking his battles and would not have grabbed the microphone from a rapper like 50 Cent.
In a recent interview, 50 Cent stated he would have assaulted Kanye West in the same situation.
“I wish he could come take one of my awards so I could black his eye in front of everybody,” 50 Cent stated.
“I think he would have done that if that was 50 Cent,” Jay-Z told Nelson during the interview. “No one is scared of 50 Cent. I want everyone to be clear. No one is scared of 50 Cent.”
50 also recently took a shot at Jay-Z when he name checked him and labeled him as “Urkel” in the video for “Flight 187.”
Jay-Z also revealed that he chastised West for interrupting Taylor Swift’s speech, which caused worldwide uproar.
People ranging from celebrities to President Barack Obama and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter have weighed in on the controversy.
“I just think that that’s what he believed,” Jay-Z told Trevor Nelson. “I thought it was rude I though it was inappropriate and I told him as much. But I don’t think he was wrong.”
Jay-Z is currently gearing up for a performance on Friday, October 9 at Penn State University.
