As if it wasn’t strange enough that Kanye West actually decided to do an interview to react to his placement on our “Hottest MCs” list this year, he thrilled listeners by claiming that he’d given moderator Sway Calloway his “first TV” back in the day, before hanging up on the call. Sway responded to ’Ye by bringing that ancient TV (which he dubbed “Sharpeezy”) to “RapFix Live,” and this week the good folks over at Sharp took it one step further, gifting Sway a brand new 90 inch flat screen TV (with the remote!)
“Sway in the Morning” is broadcasting live from SXSW all week, and reps from Sharp showed up with a surprise gift on Thursday morning (March 14). This 90” AQUOS monster is “the largest LED TV on the planet”–so thanks Kanye for making that possible, on Sway’s behalf–and they even decided to give him a remote that would work with the original 12-year-old, 36” Sharpeezy (since Kanye didn’t include that). Looks like Sway won this one.
