The 23-year-old spoke about rejecting Kanye West for a collaboration:
“I remember even getting hit up by Kanye to go to the studio. Anyone else in my shoes would’ve done it. I couldn’t be bothered.”
He added that it wasn’t a sense of superiority that he turned Kanye down, but because of the “pressure to create on call.”
“I like the physicality of living with someone, sleeping next to them, eating with them. And eventually we might make a tune. I turned down so many opportunities where I could maybe be rich right now…. Ugh, why didn’t I do it?”
King Krule’s upcoming album, The Ooz, is set to release on Oct. 13.
