In the second half of his explosive 3.5-hour interview on N.O.R.E and DJ EFN’s Drink Champs podcast, Kanye West addressed his ongoing battles with his mental health, cancel culture and his 2018 meeting with Donald Trump.
One of the biggest talking moments from the part two was Ye’s comments about bootlegging porn from Reddit. The Yeezy founder briefly talked about the power women have and how attention validates their existence. He then went on to reveal he steals ‘Only Fans’ content from Reddit.
“Let me tell you, OnlyFans. Women, when they were doing it, it wasn’t particularly for power, it was more attention,” he said. “‘Cause in general, a woman wants their flowers, they want their attention. With men, we lower our power for just desire. Men, we just be horny. And then we gon’ text these girls or DM or whatever. I get my OnlyFans off of Reddit. I bootleg the OnlyFans,” The room immediately erupted with laughter after his unprovoked revelation.
Ye added, “All these OnlyFanners gonna be so mad at me: ‘You, as an artist, would you want people to bootleg that shit?!’”
During a 2019 interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, West opened up about his addiction to porn.
“Playboy was my gateway into full on pornography addiction,” he said. “My dad had a Playboy left out at age five and it’s affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life. From age five ’til now, having to kick the habit, and it just presents itself in the open like it’s okay, and I stand up and say, ‘No, it’s not okay.’”
On the first installment of his time on Drink Champs, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West discussed a wide range of subjects—including his relationship with Big Sean, rivalry with Drake and divorce from Kim Kardashian.
