The Oklahoma native has previously said that he sometimes has to tell Kanye to “be quiet”.
In a past interview, Wilson discussed their working dynamic, commenting: “I’m not patting him on his back. When he does something wrong, I’m the first one to tell him that he’s wrong, sit down and be quiet.
“I don’t care if you don’t like it or not. I don’t embrace some of the things that he does, and some of the stuff he does, I do embrace, which is music. He’s good at that.”
He added: “Sometimes it gets a little out of hand, and sometimes he just says, ‘I’m gonna do this kind of music just to inspire people.’ Okay then say that.”
