‘I Shoulda Made the Team’
15 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Talk about holding a grudge … Kanye West is clearly still pissed at his 8th grade basketball coach –who didn’t put Yeezy on the squad … despite the fact West claims his try-out was Jordan-esque.
Kanye opened up about the hoops snub on “The Breakfast Club” radio show … telling Charlamagne tha God that he vividly remembers hitting every free throw and every lay up … but got screwed by the coach.
“I looked at the list and I wasn’t on the list … and then the coach just gave me the Kanye shrug.”
He continued, “You not gonna have somebody hit all the shots and you not gonna give him that credit.”
He’s also using the metaphor to explain why he always goes so hard for Beyonce — essentially saying she’s the 8th grader who’s making all the shots … but never gets the respect from the coach.
