Exclusive: Charlie Wilson To Kanye West “Sit Down And Be Quiet”
When Kanye West and Charlie Wilson get together, magic happens. The duo, who has teamed up on a number of musical projects, never seem to let fans down with their dynamic hits. But when it comes to life outside of the studio, Wilson doesn’t always agree with what the 36-year-old says or does.
While on the red carpet for the taping of BET’s Annual Celebration of Gospel, HipHollywood caught up with Wilson to talk about his relationship with West. When asked if he thinks it’s fair that the rapper gets criticized for his unfiltered mouth and larger than life ego, the 61-year-old explained that he the first to shut Kanye down.
“When he does something wrong, I’m the first one to tell him that he is wrong, ‘Sit down and be quiet. I don’t care if you don’t like it or not,’” Wilson told us.
“I don’t embrace some of the things that he [Kanye] does and some of the stuff he does, I do embrace; which is music. He’s good at that. Sometimes it gets a little out of hand and sometimes he just says ‘I’m just gonna do this kind of music just to inspire people.’ Ok then say that,” Charlie added.
The former lead vocalist for The Gap Band did go on to say that Kim Kardashian’s husband-to-be is incredible at his craft. “I know people get tired of hearing him say he is a genius, but he really is a musical genius. He’s sick with it.”
