Kanye Tells Crowd at Netflix Premiere: “I was offered $100 Mil by Apple But I Ain’t Never Got A Meeting with Tim Cook”

Kanye West made remarks after last night’s Hollywood premiere of “Jeen Yuhs< the three part Netflix documentary about him, produced by Future.

With many of his friends and celebrities in the crowd, Kanye– rather, Ye — had a lot to say about his philosophies.

At around 4:50 in the below video, Ye claims: “Larry Jackson offered me $100 million put “Donda” on Apple but I ain’t never got a meeting with Tim Cook.”

Jackson is Global Creative Director for Apple. Cook runs the place. It’s likely that Ye overstated the offer by around $100 million. His album, “Donda,” is on iTunes and sells for $14.99. So what is he talking about? He does not know.

Guests at the screening included Taraji P. Henson, Usher, and DaBaby. Ye defended the latter, who has been roundly criticized for making homophobic comments at his shows.

Last month “Jeen- Yus” premiered at Sundance. Kanye demanded final cut of the film that he doesn’t own. He didn’t get it. The directors of the doc told the New York Times he didn’t even watch it. “It wasn’t his process.” He sent underlings to take a look.

Yesterday Kanye, who suffers from bipolar disorder, posted to Instagram in all capital letters:
“THE WORLD IS RACIST SEXIST HOMOPHOBIC AND CRAZY PHOBIC AT OUR CORE ITS CHEAP AND DISMISSIVE TO SAY IM OFF MY MEDS ANYTIME I SPEAK UP PHOBIA IN THIS SENSE DOESN’T MEAN BEING AFRAID OF IT MEANS NOT GIVING POWER TO LETS BE MORE CONSCIOUS AND NOT WRITE EACH OTHER OFF SO EASILY”

In the video below, Kanye also says he won’t be the “house” N word.

Happy Saturday.
