A few weeks ago, while visiting the Breakfast Club at New York’s own Power 105.1, Kanye made reference to (among several other things) Arsenio Hall’s departure from his original late night show back in 1994. Kanye said that Arsenio was “turnin’ up too much” and this led to his termination and ultimately, the show’s cancellation.
Well, Arsenio felt that statement needed to be clarified. And boy, did he clarify. While I haven’t found myself enthralled by Arsenio’s new late night show, I have to agree (and frankly, admit that I’m impressed) with his direct and intelligent response to Kanye.
Much like Andreas Hale proved in the post that precedes this one, you can’t always spew conjecture without expecting to get checked by those who know better.
