Nearly 10 years later, Kanye admits Sway did have the answers

Kanye West is willing to admit he was wrong when he famously told radio host Sway Calloway that he “aint got the answers.”

The rapper made mention of the 2013 interview when discussing the downfall of his relationship with Gap and Adidas. 

“It was all kind of a disregard for the voice of something that I co-created. I co-created the product at Adidas. I co-created the product at Gap,” Ye told ABC News. “That means that I was there for some specific agenda, not for Yeezy Gap to be everything that it could be, or this dream that I had about what the Gap could be. It’s time for me to make my own thing.”

He then admitted, “I will go ahead and say, Sway had the answer.”

For some backstory, Ye vented to Sway in 2013 about the struggles he faced getting support from major corporations in the fashion industry. The host then encouraged him to push forward without the backing of those big businesses, prompting the now-viral response from Ye: “How Sway? You ain’t got the answers, man! You ain’t got the answers!”

Like the 2013 clip, Kanye’s admission has sparked many reactions on social media.

Kayne’s full interview airs Thursday night.
