Between FX’s new series The People vs. O.J. Simpson and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Marcus Allen storyline this season, the O.J. trial has once again become American obsession. Kanye West even seemed to compare himself to the now-incarcerated former football player in a radio interview with Big Boy on real 92.3 today.
When discussing his upcoming album, West joked that the late Robert Kardashian—lawyer to O.J. and dad to Kim—is helping him from heaven.
“God is doing the...work,” he said. “My mom had [producer] Teddy Riley change his flight and come back to the studio. Robert Kardashian is making sure that all the deals is getting done. He’s still doing deals for controversial black people from up in heaven.”
