Steve worked for Kanye during two separate events (New York Fashion Week and the Met Gala) spanning 2016 and 2021. Quickly drama ensued when Kanye accused Steve of flirting with Kim Kardashian and filed a lawsuit for defamation. Steve went on to create an award-winning documentary about the situation to share his point of view. This conversation dives into Steve’s interactions with Kanye, his development within the entertainment industry, and thoughts on the future of Hollywood.
