Damon Albarn says Kanye West 'trapped' Paul McCartney in an 'abusive' collaboration

Friday, June 29, 2018

In an interview with French publication L’Obs, Gorillaz founder Damon Albarn got heated over what he says was an “abusive” collaboration between Kanye West and Paul McCartney, one that birthed Yeezy’s “All Day,” “Only One” and “FourFiveSeconds,” released in late 2014 and early 2015. According to Stereogum, who translated the already once-translated interview, the Blur frontman accused Kanye of milking the former Beatle for his work. “Do not get me started on Kanye West. Kanye West trapped Paul McCartney,” claimed Albarn. “I have a problem with this abusive collaboration: we’re talking about Paul McCartney, but he’s so precious! Kanye West thinks only of Kanye West, using a name to make headlines, saying ‘McCartney is in my song.’ In addition, he puts McCartney in the video of the song, but not in the song itself.”
