Chaka Khan has a bone to pick with Kanye West. When she let him use “Through the Fire” as a sample for his 2003 song, “Through the Wire,” she had no idea what his plan was.
“[Kanye] didn’t mention that he was gonna speed it up, you know, three times its normal speed,” Chaka said. It resulted in her sounding like a chipmunk. The legend learned her lesson that day. “Had he, I would’ve had something to say. But since I didn’t think of that, believe me, I think of it now. I ask, ‘How are we gonna do this?’” she said.
For the record, Chaka said that she and Ye still haven’t discussed the situation.
