Kanye West I Thought Kim Was Leaving Me ... After 'Slavery' Comment

6/25/2018 7:43 AM PDT

Kim Kardashian was ready to pull the plug on her marriage to Kanye West after his "slavery" remark on TMZ Live ... or so, Kanye thought.

Turns out the biggest backlash Kanye faced after saying 400 years of slavery "sound like a choice" ... was at home. He says, "There was a moment where I felt like after TMZ, maybe a week after that, I felt like the energy levels were low."

Ye told The NY Times, he actually called several family members and asked, "Was Kim thinking about leaving me after TMZ?"

Obviously, they've worked things out.

BTW, the Times asked Kanye if he wanted to rephrase the statement about "slavery." He refused, saying ... "I never said slavery itself -- like being shackled in chains -- was a choice. That's why I went from slave to 400 years to mental prison to this and that. If you look at the clip you see the way my mind works."

Okay. It's definitely worth another look.

Swizz Beatz & Timbaland Beat Battle Was So Good We're Hitting the Road!!!

6/11/2018 4:02 PM PDT

Swizz Beatz wasn't kidding when he said his beat battle with Timbaland was "to be continued" -- the hip-hop icons are planning a tour.

The mega producers joined us on "TMZ Live" to talk about the stage battle they had Sunday night at Hot 97's Summer Jam concert -- and they revealed it was NOT a one-off. In fact, Swizz said it was so good, turning it into a full-fledged tour -- with superstar guests -- just makes too much sense.

ICYMI ... about a year ago, Timbaland accepted Swizz's challenge to a beat battle and when it finally went down Sunday, the crowd went nuts. Swizz said onstage, "This is to be continued. I ain't finished with the ass-whopping and I guess he ain't [either]." 

Swizz threw down another challenge and Tim accepted. We know this ... the more trash talking they do ... the doper their show will be.
