Kanye West joined N.O.R.E and DJ EFN’ for an interview on “Drink Champs.”

During the interview, Ye’ discussed a variety of topics including his infamous ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt, Drake being the ‘best rapper of all time,’ beef with Diddy, Meek Mill and he also made some controversial comments about the passing of George Floyd.

Following the interview, N.O.R.E has become the talk of social media, as many users felt he did not “challenge” nor give Ye’ any “kick back” regarding his comments. While on the show, Kanye says Georgo Floyd died from fentanyl rather than from being asphyxiated. “If you look, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that,” the rapper said. Those comments sparked a lot of outrage.

In an extended clip, N.O.R.E did however address some of Ye’s antics in the media lately. He says, “but when you wear the White Lives Matter shirt, it kinda takes away from everything from Black people. Because what it is is the same way you wear the confederate flag, and we’re like, ‘Damn.’ And I know you. I love you. I f**k with you, you my brother. So I take this. And I’m a real n***a. And I’m a real n***a in the streets every day. But, even me, I question, like, why would you try to… Like, even when you said, George Floyd […] ‘I can prove that somebody wasn’t on his neck.’ We don’t even care about that, Ye.”

“We Black people,” N.O.R.E. continued. “We… we’re Black Panthers. We’re the people that you gotta f**k with. You… we f**ked with you when it was time to say that we f**ked with you. We wanna continue to follow you. We do. You are Ye. But when the White Lives Matter… We know white lives matter. We know that. But Black Lives Matter… When we are getting killed every f**king single day, we have to notice that.”
