"You're fired. Go home," Kanye typed to the engineer. "Stop texting. Go find God. Come back after you found God."
SZA took some time out of her busy schedule to defend Kanye for the firing.
“Unpopular opinion: You don’t get ‘off the grid’ quality of artistry without some extent of forced labor. Sacrifices have to be made for greatness. Everybody tiptoeing these days afraid to cross boundaries or to be exposed. But at the end of the day, your favorite song, your favorite shoe, your favorite garment, your favorite drink wouldn’t be created if everybody in the process was in a comfortable state. Labor takes its toll. Somebody at some point sacrificed something unwillingly for it. It’s not just the willing ones, sometimes we just need to dig our graves in order to feel alive.”
