Following months of his “streams of consciousness” aka “rants,” Kanye West vows to stay silent for at least six-months.
Last week, Kanye West wrapped up his “Yeezus Tour” in Toronto, and delivered a 27-minute “stream of consciousness” and promised to keep his negative thoughts to himself for at least six-months.
As Ye let some things off his chest, he said this may be the last time for a while that you hear him talk his shit:
“Everything I’m saying that’s not allowed, soak it in right now, this might be the last time y’all hear me talk shit for a long time. It might be another… six months, at least. You’re just gonna have to run back my past interviews… if you wanna hear some realness.”

He stated that he is focusing on his ideas and creative outlets that he has in store for 2014:
“I decided to completely focus everything in 2014 on all the new ideas and all the creative outlets.”
While he reflected on 2013, Ye wanted to let the fans know that he apologizes for nothing that he’s said over the past few months:
See there’s two type of people in the world: There’s dreamers and there’s haters. The only difference is one thing: Haters forgot about their dreams. Or better yet: Haters gave up on their dreams. If you’re thinking of doing anything, get your hands up in the air. If you think you can do anything… So right now, as I’m reflective about 2013, I want to take this moment to… I really started thinking about everything I said and I just want to take this brief moment to take time in front of you all. I started thinking about everything I said and I just want to apologize for absolutely nothing!
Kanye then addressed his issues with Nike, and vowed to never bring them up again, unless it is in a positive light:
“I’m not [going to] ever bring up Nike again. And the only way I’ll bring them up is in a positive light. Because I actually appreciate the opportunity to have been able to make my own shoe with them, and if I didn’t have the opportunity I wouldn’t have my deal I have with Adidas right now.”
During his “stream,” Yeezus also addressed the media, and his run-ins with the paparazzi, then snapped on a fan who interrupted him by telling him to take his mask off:
Let me explain the media thing because I want to get this point across. What I’m saying is like, 10 years from now there’s going to be people writing reports that were at this concert right now and they’re going to know and feel the passion, the creativity, the surrealness that went into this… You know, I’m actually cool with the paparazzi at this point. I have no rage for that shit. If it wasn’t the paparazzi, if it wasn’t for you, you know what I’m saying, they like…
(Someone cut off Kanye by telling him to take his mask off)
Don’t scream at me when I’m talking to you or you can get right the fuck out of here. I’ll kick you out and the show will be over and you can be yelling ‘Take your mask off’ in the car. Only when I get sued and I’m trying to give a deposition then the motherfuckers try and talk shit to me while I’m talking. I’m speaking, don’t turn this way. Don’t talk while ‘Ye talking. I’m talking, you listen. Shut the fuck up… Now you made me lose my motherfucking train of thought; throw my zen off. We’z about to have a miraculous, miracle, Deepak Chopra-level moment and your dumb ass gone fucked it up. But let me get back to my flowtation. (Let me get back to flow, let me get back to trying)
As he continued, noted by the HuffPost, Yeezy said he isn’t willing to change who he is, so he’ll just keep it quiet for a while as he explained that his fans are one big family and he is the “crazy cousin,” while joking that every family needs someone to play that role.
He added that he wants to just be positive, focus on his work, and go home to his family:
“I just really feel like I want to be expressive with my work, with my music. I want to be expressive with this opportunity I have with Adidas, and just go home to my family.”
