Kanye West Talks Wiz Khalifa Beef, Drake's Pool & Amber Rose's Selfie With Kim Kardashian

Yeezy spills all the tea on some of the hottest topics surrounding him this past week.

Kanye West called into Big Boy's Los Angeles radio show to discuss some of the hot topics surrounding his career. He offered up some of the latest information for his seventh-studio album, So Help Me God SWISH Waveswhich is as-of-press-time untitled, with one week to go until it drops.

"I wanted to get people's opinions on how they felt," West said on his wife Kim Kardashian's recent poll pertaining to what Yeezy should name the new album.

He also wants to use something fairly unknown to us mortals for his "album of the life"- ultra light beams.

"I'm tryna open up hearts, minds," he chuckled. "When I was sitting in the studio with Kirk, Kirk Franklin, and we're just going through it, I said this is a gospel album, with a whole lot of cursing on it, but it's still a gospel album. The gospel according to Ye. It's not exactly what happened in the bible, but it's this story idea of Mary Magdalene becoming Mary."

'Ye couldn't get through the interview without discussing the most buzzworthy feud of the past week- his Twitter spat with Wiz Khalifa over the possible title, Waves. According to West, mutual friend Malik Yusef was the one who aided in helping the rappers squash the beef.

"My brother Malik Yusef got us on the phone. He's very close to Wiz, he's also very close to me," he said. "We chopped it up, squashed it. For people who felt a way about the kids comment, I didn’t mean it in a harmful way. I just saw my wife’s initial and reacted, cause that’s my family. People be thinkin'... [Kim] is open season or something... that’s the mother of my kid! And I’m ‘Ye. I don’t want to act like I’m the toughest...I just wanna show that I'm a man at the end of the day."

He also addressed the validity of the picture of former-flame Amber Rose and Kim K., which was taken at momager Kris Jenner's house.

Azealia Banks Appears To Side With Alabama's Abortion Legislation

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Azealia Banks appears to side with Alabama for their controversial legislation on abortion, which prohibits nearly all abortions at any point in a woman's pregnancy.

The "Anna Wintour" artist took to her social media page to write that while she believes abortion is "gruesome," she also feels that it is "evil" to have a late-term abortion.

"I actually see this as a blessing," she wrote regarding Alabama's legislation. "Conservatives could care less about petty racism and more about having control of medical industry $ and endeavors... I’m actually fine to really start limiting abortions in favor of other ways to prevent pregnancy. The problem today is that abortion is being used as a form of contraception rather than a last- resort option for terminating pregnancies."

She continued her caption by writing that stem-cell research is also a dangerous problem, and she is more in-favor of stopping "the deep state black embryo stem cell mars dwelling close Scientology ass liberal robot chicken plan," which is where she "draws the line."

"Abortion is not a right, it’s a luxury provided by modern science," she wrote. In a comment, she continued with "I’m not a Christian quack but everyone is a liiiiiiiitle too strong and Loud about demanding the state off abortions as a right when it is not a right. It is a privilege of modern science just like a sex change surgery or a gastric bypass sleeve."

Musicians such as Rihanna, Diddy, Snoop Dogg and more have reacted unfavorably to the ban.
