Kanye West Throws Away His Phone, And Then Tweets About How He’ll Have More “Air To Create” Now


So, uh…Kanye West just dumped his cell phone, and he wants you all to know about it. On Wednesday, he jumped on his Twitter account to tell his fans about the important life event.

“I got rid of my phone so I can have air to create…”


Of course, this message doesn’t mean all that much, considering he’s still doing phone-like things on his laptop. Or heck, maybe he’s on an iPad. Or maybe he used Kim’s phone to send out the tweet. OR MAYBE HIS PRESENCE IS SO STRONG, THAT HIS THOUGHTS JUST RANDOMLY CREATE TWEETS!

The important thing to remember here is that going without a phone shouldn’t be too hard for the rapper. He didn’t have a smartphone until 2011, and even then he only got it to win over Kim Kardashian’s heart.

During an episode of the now deceased talk show Kocktails With Khloe, West talked about his first phone purchase…

I got a phone because somebody decided they wanted to marry Kris Humphries. I wasn’t up to anything, and I looked on the internet, and there was Kim Kardashian with some extremely tall person, and I was like, ‘I need to call her or something.’

Now that he’s got the woman of his dreams, he doesn’t need a cell phone. Although, we don’t really understand why he needed to throw it out either. The only social media he had was Twitter. He didn’t have Instagram or Snapchat, so what the heck was so distracting?

Is Kanye a huge mobile gamer? I can just see him playing Words with Friends, getting mad that his own words aren’t being accepted, “This is bullsh-t! HOW IS APOLOGIN NOT ON HERE? SOMEONE OWES ME AN APOLOGEE”
