Kanye West says he couldn't have sex with Kim Kardashian until he took 30 showers to rid himself of the stench of Amber Rose.

Kanye taped a segment with "The Breakfast Club" Thursday and made it clear ... he's no fan of his ex, who is now calling his wife a whore.

Kanye was obviously talking metaphorically, but his point was clear ... Kim found him unappealing at first because of his relationship with Amber. 

And then Kanye stirred up a hornet's nest, making it clear to the "TBC" DJs that Tyga is in deep with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner. Kanye said ... "I think he got in early. I think he was smart."

And check out this audio. Kanye says when he went to dinner the other night with Taylor Swift the restaurant was playing Beck and it's the first time he ever heard the album! As for why he trashed Beck at the Grammys ... Kanye explains why Beck actually needs to thank him.
