After ranting about only being ranked number seven on MTV’s “Hottest MCs In The Game” list, G.O.O.D. Music leader Kanye West referenced giving MTV host Sway his first television set.
Sway confirmed the story on Wednesday afternoon, promising to detail the full back story on the next edition of his show Rap Fix.
Delivering as promised, Sway performed throughout the show next to the actual TV set that Kanye gave him. Sway told the infamous story, starting by saying, “Please welcome my first TV, given to me by Kanye West. We go so far back together.”
Sway continued, “This is my first TV. We met in 2001. Back in 2001, me and Kanye West would hang out from time to time… Kanye is one of the most talented visionaries we have in this business. So, him inviting me to see his house? Of course I did it.”
Sway wrapped up the story detailing how the television set became his property. “When I opened the bathroom door, which was probably the size of a closet, the first thing I saw was this hunk of a TV sitting in Kanye West’s sink. I thought it was abstract art. I asked ‘Ye, ‘Yo, what’s up with that TV in your sink?’ He responded, ‘Yo dog, it’s 36 inches. This TV is too small to put in my living room. It’s embarrassing. So I hide it in my sink because the TV is embarrassing.’ Being from Oakland, I asked Kanye, ‘What are you going to do with the TV? You going to throw it away?’ He said, ‘Yep.’ I said, ‘No you not, homie. You grab one end of the TV. I’ma grab the other.’ We took the TV to my car.”
