It looks like Arsenio Hall is not happy with Kanye West.
Arsenio presented the nominees for “Best New Artist” at the Grammy Nominations Concert tonight at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. After his presentation, HipHollywood was able to ask him about Kanye West’s recent music.
Arsenio, who is know for his great relationships with hip hop artists, both old and new, did not seem to be too happy with Kanye. This is what he had to say:
“I hate the word slave used in songs. Get the F*ck out of here. Do you know what that word is? Do you know what that word is all about? Nobody can use slave in pop culture. If you in the music business you should not f*ck with that word. Too serious an error, too serious a problem in america.” Arsenio said passionately. “There is no one that is free to move around this country that should use the word slave. Do you know what it meant to slaves?”
West recently brought up Arsenio’s name in a negative manner during a interview with the Breakfast Club on Power 105.1. During the interview, when asked by Charlamagne why he was so materialistic and why he thought he needed money to have a voice, Ye replied,
“I could use my voice but what’d happen if y’all don’t by no other albums? … People gonna say ‘Oh he like Arsenio Hall and he was turning up to much and now you fired.’ But when you got money can’t nobody fire you.”

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs
If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.
1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.
In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary.
2. He’s funny.
Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.
3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.
In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.
4. He’s a rapper.
His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle.
5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.
The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
