Following on from Kanye West's rant at the Grammys, in which he said the fact that Best Album was given to Beck and not Beyoncé was an afront to "artistry".
But Fiddy begged to differ.
“[Beck] produced the record, he wrote the record,” the rapper told People. “There’s 11 producers on Beyoncé’s album - Kanye, being a producer and a writer should see that, but you get jaded."
West's argument that multi-instrumentalist Beck shouldn't have won the Grammy was hotly contended. It came after West pretended to invade the stage as a joke.
Explaining that the “voices in his head” made him do it, West tried to make it up to Beck. “So the voices in my head told me go and then I just walked up like halfway up the stage.”
He added: “I was asked my opinion and I was given a platform. And when given a platform, it's very hard as we know – and I'm going to talk in third person like I'm a crazy person – but it's very hard for Kanye West to not be very true and vocal to what he feels.”
West said he hoped him and Beck could “still go play basketball and stuff.”
