Kanye West returned to Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” this morning for the first time since 2013, and, as usual, it brought out the best and worst from the notoriously uncensored artist — from Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian’s relationship and details on his new music to comments on Amber Rose and Tyga. Here are some of the highlights from the nearly hour-long interview.

On Amber Rose’s recent comments:

She’s just soaking in the moment. If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, it wouldn’t be an Amber Rose … It’s hard for a woman to want to be with someone that with Amber Rose. She wasn’t sending me no pictures. I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim. But I just wanna be respectful, man.

On Tyga and Kylie Jenner’s reported underage relationship:

She’s just soaking in the moment. If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, it wouldn’t be an Amber Rose … It’s hard for a woman to want to be with someone that with Amber Rose. She wasn’t sending me no pictures. I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim. But I just wanna be respectful, man.

On potentially making an album with Drake:

She’s just soaking in the moment. If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, it wouldn’t be an Amber Rose … It’s hard for a woman to want to be with someone that with Amber Rose. She wasn’t sending me no pictures. I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim. But I just wanna be respectful, man.

On his new album:

She wasn’t sending me no pictures. I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim. But I just wanna be respectful, man.

On not speaking out about police brutality:

She wasn’t sending me no pictures. I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim. But I just wanna be respectful, man.

Update: A new clip, recorded live, seems to reveal Kanye confirming Tyga and Kylie Jenner’s relationship: “I think they’re in love, man. You can’t tell nobody … ” he says. The clip appears to have been edited out of the video Power 105.1 later uploaded (there is a visible jump in the video at about 29:10).
