Devo Springsteen Claims Executives & Artists Ridiculed Kanye West Until He Cried

(AllHipHop News) DeVon “Devo Springsteen” Harris is one of the people that helped launch the music career of his college roommate, John Stephens, who now goes by the stage name John Legend. Harris is also the cousin of G.O.O.D. Music founder Kanye West.Devo Springsteen co-wrote several tracks on Legend's 2004 Platinum-certified debut album Get Lifted. The producer/songwriter also worked with West on the Grammy-winning "Diamonds from Sierra Leone" track off 2005's Late Registration.

During an appearance on the Bedroom Beethovens podcast, Springsteen spoke about Kanye West trying to make the transition from a record producer to a recording artist at the beginning of his career. The University of Pennsylvania graduate used the conversation to express how some people in positions of power can undervalue talented individuals.
"When you believe, you have to just believe. You don't know how many people would say to even [Kanye], 'You're not a real artist,'" stated Springsteen. "I know people have heard stories like, 'Oh, they didn't want to sign him.' No, it was worse. They would ridicule him. Executives, artists, etc. would ridicule this guy until he was crying. And he would still say, 'I'm going to be the #1 artist in the world.'"

For the bid, he’s seeking guidance from Elon Musk and has picked a preacher from Wyoming as his vice presidential candidate. “Like anything I’ve ever done in my life,” says West, “I’m doing to win.”

In the chat, ‘Ye also admits that he’s never noted in his life and just recently got himself registered to vote in Wyoming. He has also admitted to contracting COVID-19 back in February and that he was skeptical about a vaccine being developed for it. He calls it a “the mark of the beast.” Kanye having Coronavirus was accidentally revealed by Royce da 5’9″ during a chat with Lupe Fiasco on Instagram Live recently (watch the clip below).

Kanye also said that he envisions a White House model based on the secret country of Wakanda in Black Panther.
On Trump and Joe Biden:

“It looks like one big mess to me,” he says. “I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.”
“I’m not saying Trump’s in my way, he may be a part of my way. And Joe Biden? Like come on man, please. You know? Obama’s special. Trump’s special. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special.”
“Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”
On God’s role in electing Presidents:
“Let’s see if the appointing is at 2020 or if it’s 2024—because God appoints the president. If I win in 2020 then it was God’s appointment. If I win in 2024 then that was God’s appointment.”
On Coronavirus cure and vaccine:
“We pray. We pray for the freedom. It’s all about God. We need to stop doing things that make God mad.”
“It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed… So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven. I’m sorry when I say they, the humans that have the Devil inside them. And the sad thing is that, the saddest thing is that we all won’t make it to heaven, that there’ll be some of us that do not make it. Next question.”
On abortion:
“I am pro-life because I’m following the word of the bible.”
On having Covid-19:
“Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it. I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!” (laughs)
On his campaign slogan:
“Well my second album is called Late Registration. I got a rap … The other thing is, my campaign is Kanye West YES, not YEP, not YEAH. YES. YES. YES… When I’m president, let’s also have some fun. Let’s get past all the racism conversation, let’s empower people with 40 acres and a mule, let’s give some land, that’s the plan.”

This rapper sh*t so gay.” -Young Thug’s Instagram StoryBefore You GoThe new record came from a collaboration with late rapper Pop Smoke. Pusha used his verse to flame Drake and reference a past 2018 incident during a Toronto concert.“You know reality bites/It’s chess not checkers/Those empty threats only sound good on your records/If the patois is not followed by blocka/It’s like marked for death Screwface, without the choppa/Let ‘em rush the stage when you made like Sinatra,” Pusha begins, potentially referencing Drake’s use of the dialect and a 2018 incident when several men rushed the stage during Pusha’s Daytona Tour show in Toronto. Adding, “Only to find the blade, flyin’ back through LaGuardia/I might even buy a home out in Mississauga,” in a clear reference to a city near Drake’s hometown of Toronto.
