Rapper KANYE WEST has finally managed to get to ARSENIO HALL!!!
During his appearance on POWER 105.1 THE BREAKFAST CLUB in November, KANYE WEST said that ARSENIO HALL was fired from his original show, The ARSENIO HALL SHOW, for "Turning Up Too Much".
During his speech at the GRAMMY Nomination concert, ARSENIO HALL dismissed KANYE WEST's accusation that racism caused The Arsenio Hall Show to be discontinued in 1994.
ARSENIO HALL said;
"I just left my show, the white man didn’t do nothing this time, bruh. Save that for when the White man do do something. Don’t muddy the waters of racism with my bullsh*t, because it was not racism. I just left my show."A reason KANYE may feel ARSENIO was fired for “turning up too much” is the commonly believed notion that his controversial interview with NATION Of ISLAM Honorable Minister LOUIS FARRAKHAN in February 1994 upset CBS, where the show was aired.
In an interview with VIBE Magazine this past September admitted that the interview may have destroyed some of the love people had for him.
Mr. HALL was not finished with reprimanding Mr. WEST as he gave him and the media present a quick history lesson on the term “SLAVE”, and denounced its use in songs.
"I hate the word ‘slave’ used in songs. The f*ck outta here. Do you know what that word is? Do you know what that word is all about? Nobody can use ‘slave’ in pop culture. If you’re in the music business, you shouldn’t f*ck with that word. Too serious an era. Too serious a problem in America. There is no one that’s free to move around this country that should use the word ‘slave.’ Do you know what it meant to slaves?"-CCG
