Yesterday, in an interview with The New York Times, Kanye West likened himself to late Apple CEO Steve Jobs and a host of other greats saying, “I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve [Jobs] of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture.” To most, this was just Yeezy being his egotistical self; a certain Hip-Hop veteran thought the title fit — in perhaps the worse way possible, though.
On Wednesday (June 12), Dres of Black Sheep said that West, like Jobs, was homosexual on the preferred forum for slander, Twitter.
“Kanye… like Steve Jobs… is one of the most powerful gay men in the world…. God Bless Him,” tweeted Dres.
He continued, “oh… he’s not out yet…. my bad…. lmao,” before adding, “cmon y’all… i’m playin…. Steve Jobs wasn’t gay….”
The initial tweets have since been deleted, but it was followed by a rant that strays off from the potency of the original comment.
From what we gather, the Queens native has a problem with how G.O.O.D. Music’s general is representing the culture and how he influences the people. Opinions
Earlier in the year, Lord Jamar of Brand Nubian also threw a shot at West’s s-xuality. He upped the ante by taking his words to wax, though.
