In an interview Kanye West gave to Power 105.1's morning show in New York, he finally commented on the quality of Beck's album Morning Phase, which he infamously declared just a few weeks ago was undeserving of the Grammy for Album of the Year.
"The other day I went out to dinner, sat down with Taylor Swift. And ironically, they were playing the Beck album....I was like 'Man, this is kinda good.'"
The hosts of Power 105.1's "The Breakfast Club" inquired whether West thought that the restaurant put on Morning Phase intentionally because he was in the restaurant. He also admitted he had not heard the album before that night.
"I bet you the album was really good. I'm going to listen to the album and maybe it was potentially an 'Album of the Year.'"
On the criticism he received for his actions at the Grammy Awards, he said "I deserved it. That was completely hypocritical."
It wasn't clear from the interview whether it was just this current Beck album that West hadn't heard, or any Beck album. He previously said "I love Beck, but he ain't have Album of the Year."
