Kanye West has mastered the art of creating massive musical moments. With the jeen-yuhs documentary and Donda 2 swirling around the audio/visual mix at the same time, everyone’s eyes and ears are on Ye. Kanye West also saw a massive jump in his Spotify numbers amidst the hype.
The jeen-yuhs docuseries has given the public access to Kanye West’s rise, and it has been an eye-opening experience for even the most ardent followers of the rapper. Dame Dash recently discussed about his original expectations for Kanye West.
During a recent interview with Fox Sports’ Club Shay Shay and host Shannon Sharpe, Dame Dash reminisced on Kanye West’s great career. When they first met, Dash claims he never anticipated West to achieve the level of celebrity he has now.
No, I never expected that in a billion years … I didn’t expect it. I expected other people that were in my crew to be Kanye. I expected someone to do those things, but I didn’t know it would be him. But the reason why it was him is because he had the most respect for me. He’s the only one that listened completely. And still does – on certain levels.
Dash, who recently dubbed West as the new Michael Jackson, was instrumental in bringing the Donda 2 rapper to Roc-a-Fella early on. Dash went on to highlight how West’s Yeezy brand’s impact on the fashion sector helped him broaden his legacy later in his discussion with Sharpe. Take a look at Dash’s interview with Shannon Sharpe below.
