Former boxing champion Mike Tyson thinks rapper Kanye West is “nuts”, but admires his ability to lead.
Tyson, 50, said the 39-year-old rapper might be a little “misguided”, but insists he’s not as bad as people think “when you see him smiling,” reported Female First.
“Kanye’s nuts. There’s no doubt about it. “[West is] on the right path. He might be a little bit misguided and offensive, but he has more than belief... He’s really not the bad [expletive] you think he is when you see him smiling,” Tyson said.
Iron Mike also described the Gold Digger hitmaker as “a leader”, and said that his late mentor Cus D’Amato would have “loved a guy like him”.
“Cus D’Amato would love a guy like him… a guy that leads. I was a quiet guy. Even if it’s false confidence, Cus would turn that into reality. To be a leader, you have to have delusional faith that you can do things that are almost impossible,” he said.
