Kanye West also asks Bruno Mars to sing on a song he’s producing with Puff Daddy and 88 Keys.
Kanye West has apologized to Beck.
"I would like to publicly apologize to Beck, I’m sorry Beck,” the Chicago rapper-producer wrote on Twitter today (February 26).
West also apologized to Bruno Mars on Twitter today.
"I also want to publicly apologize to Bruno Mars, I used to hate on him but I really respect what he does as an artist,”West wrote. "I also would love for Bruno to sing this hook on this song 88 Keys / Puff and I produced… I even asked Tyler to shoot the vid."
In November, West discussed Bruno Mars at the Yeezus tour stop in Brooklyn, New York.
West addressed the crowd and recalled a phone call he received from Rick Rubin encouraging him to leave MTV's Video Music Awards after he performed. He also discussed Bruno winning a majority of the awards at the program and stated that recognition in the streets trumps any award an artist can receive from a network.
“When I went to the MTV Awards, Rick Rubin hit me, he said ‘Are you performing at the MTV Awards,’” Kanye at the time. “I said ‘Yeah.’ He said ‘Look man, just do your mothafuckin song and leave. Just do your song and leave. Just do your song and leave.’ Cause sure enough I’m sitting down trying, I’m trying to enjoy mothafuckas performing and shit…And then they start giving out awards and shit. And Bruno Mars win all the mothafuckin awards and shit. You know, I was just thinking about what Rick Rubin told me cause I don’t give a fuck about no TV show. But what I care about is if you an artist and you work hard as fuck and the streets say that you deserve that shit then can’t no mothafuckin networks try to gas everybody up. So, they can sell some [product] with the prettiest mothafucka out.”
