Chaka Khan Sets the Record Straight on Kanye West's 'Through the Wire' Sample

Chaka Khan has put her drama with Kanye West behind her, ending her touring career and expressing her contentment with her life.
Khan's drama with West stemmed from how he sampled her song, 'Through the Fire,' and sped up her vocals for his debut solo single, 'Through the Wire.'
Khan's change of heart came after realizing the influence of West on hip-hop and the rap game, leading her to let go of any grudges.
Khan revealed that West had called her after his car accident, expressing how instrumental she was in his healing process and seeking her permission to use the song.
Khan is focused on enjoying her 'rich-ass life' and spending time with her great-grandchildren, leading her to retire from touring and prioritize occasional dates over extensive tours.
