So the tea has been spilled guys. Sit back and get ready for this crazy Kanye story.
Remember in “Real Friends,” when ‘Ye rapped “I had a cousin that stole my laptop that I was fuckin’ bitches on/Paid that nigga 250 thousand just to get it from him?” Well, that actually happened.
Lawrence Franklin, the “Black Skinheads” cousin gave a pretty detailed interview to the Daily Mail about the situation, about Kanye, his mom and more.
“I was at my aunt’s house when the family member who had the laptop called me, a friend of his, and my uncle to the kitchen where he opened the laptop to show a video of Kanye in clear view having sex with a fair-skinned black woman,”
Kanye gave the laptop away as a gift and it was lent to another family member. And that’s when it got messy.
It sounds crazy right? Your own cousin stiffing you for $250,000. Well after that Franklin claims Kanye stopped trusting. This all apparently happened in 2012, between his mom’s death and when his entered a relationship with his now wife, Kim Kardashian West. According to Franklin, after the exchange the family member began “to buy himself the life he dreamed about.”
‘The sex tape episode started his decline—he stopped trusting people.At the end of the day if a member of your family had taken you for a quarter of a million dollars—so they can complete their own ambitions—who can you trust within your circle?”
West obviously hasn’t forgotten the situation. He cited the situation again in his track “No More Parties in L.A.,” “And as far as real friends, tell all my cousins I love ’em/Even the one that stole the laptop, you dirty motherfucker.”
Frankline also went into detail about ‘Ye’s grief of his mother’s death due to plastic surgery, his marriage to Kim K and more. Supposedly, this is what contributed to his breakdown and hospitalization.
We have yet to hear from Kanye about the interview but he’s never shy to comment.
