    Reggae legend/innovative producer Lee “Scratch” Perry is 81 years old and gives notoriously off-kilter interviews. In fact, he once called Island Records head honcho Chris Blackwell a “vampire.”

    His most recent chat with House of Strombo was no exception — only this time he touched on the subject of Hip Hop, which included his thoughts on rap gods Kanye West and Drake.When speaking on West, he said Yeezy has sold his soul and that of his late mother’s for wealth.

    “Him sell his mother’s soul to get rich … To get rich, sell his soul to, sell his mother’s soul, sell his soul to get the American dollars that is going down,” Perry said in his thick Jamaican accent. “Why should I listen to somebody that is so perfect and so unperfect and so stupid?”

    I sold my soul to the devil: that's a crappy deal
    Least it came with a few toys like a Happy Meal

    This game you could never win
    Cause they love you then they hate you then they love you again
    Get away from me misery
    Get away from me loneliness
    Get away from me fake bytches, I can’t take the phoniness
    Get away from me wack tracks
    I can only make only hits
    I’m an only child lost in the World
    Where do the lonely kids go when the bell ring?
    It's feeling like Hell rings
    Bringing me back down
    Checking my background
    Its ironic whats happening
    Imagine if I didn’t have the ends
    I wouldn't have so many imaginary friends
    I’m spaced out Dogg, I be on that moon talk
    Wonder if God ask Mike how to moonwalk
    I swear to momma wish me and my father talk more
    I stopped visiting around the time I was a sophomore
    I guess everything I hate about me I see in him
    And we ain’t finna change, so we’ll never agree again
    Till then I’ll be pouring out my soul
    Just a few things I see with my eyes closed - Kanye West (Eyes Closed)

    Dude is clearly old and may have Alzheimers or something. As well as the fact he is spiritual and different. With that said, they should have edited this down or just never put this out.

    Also some of the things he said makes sense but it's more so metaphorical :jbhmm:

    Lee Perry has always been an enigmatic personality.

    Definitely, and you get an immediate sense of this from his music. Read about his Black Ark Studio to get an idea.

    There's a lot to Scratch Perry that I probably never heard of, I'm sure other posters that are more familiar with him can talk about crazy stories about him.
