Jay-Z Comes To Kanye West's Defense: 'He Didn't Kill Anybody'

Jay-Z thinks his friend Kanye West is getting a raw deal for hijacking Taylor Swift (photosTaylor Swift photos)'s acceptance speech at last week's MTV VMAs.

"Kanye is like my little brother. He's just a super-passionate person," the 39-year-old tells BBC Radio 1. "Of course it was rude because it was her moment, but that's what he believed."

"It's really an awards show and I think it's a bit of a blow out. I think it was rude, but the way they're treating him I think it's been blown out of proportion."

"He's on the cover of every paper. He didn't kill anybody. No one got harmed."

"I think he's passionate and he needs to watch that. At the end of the day, we'll celebrate him for his passion rather than vilify him, because the thing which causes him to make great records is what also makes him step out of line."

"He was inappropriate, it wasn't fair to Taylor at all. Move on. But I don't think he should lay low. He's very intelligent and he's been that passionate from his first record, he used to jump on the table when we were recording the first 'Blueprint' album and I'd be like, 'Yo, this is not the time for that.'"

"If he had changed since his first record, it would be different but he’s always been like that."
