Motivational speaker, entrepreneur, author, speaker, and internet personality Gary Vaynerchuk stops by the Power 106 Perrier® & Juice Studios for an exclusive interview with The Cruz Show. Speaking about artists and social media, Gary states, “Taylor Swift was real smart. She’s a gangster. Just so everybody knows, Taylor Swift is a gangster in a world that I play mental warfare. She knows how to do it. Kendrick Lamar knows how to do it.”
When Cruz asks if Kanye West knows how to do it, Gary responds, “One thing you’ll love about me, I don’t like talking when I don’t know what the fuck I’m talking about out. It’s funny, everyone watches Kanye so heavy — I haven’t dug deep enough to really know. First of all, all that putting music on Tidal and shit, I haven’t listened to the last three albums Kanye’s come out with. I see what he’s doing. I see what he’s doing for the culture. The answer is, straight truth, I’m not sure. But I know, if you’re putting out good deeds to build your brand and only your brand, then I think you have to be careful about that.”
During the interview, Gary talks about social media and admits to holding himself accountable more than anything he does in his life. He states, “If I slip once, I’ve given up all the leverage. I might as well have taken the $100 million a year. I’m leaving so much on the table not to slip up!” Watch above as he touches on Demi Lovato’s overdose and more!
