No, definitely not for real.
Kanye West wants Mark Zuckerberg's help, and he needs an answer by tomorrow
Aparently also has a clause a lowing the band one attempt at stealing it back with out recrimination.
I'd never buy under those terms as you don't fuck with the Wu Tang Clan.
that was just someone fucking around with photoshop, but it was pretty funny...
Trump thanks Kanye West for tweet
Good grief. Jumped the shark.
Kanye West Suggests Slavery Was a "Choice" in TMZ Visit
It fits with his Self Made Man philosophy. Slavery Is A Choice might be the end of him though.... It's going to trigger some interesting discussion in the US though, with the facts firmly stacked against the Randians. Hopefully will flush out a few more nutters.
For God's sake Jay-Z phone him and tell him to shut the fuck up.
'"Don't be a dick" fail
Either he is in the grip of some form of self-destructive breakdown .... or is just a pig-ignorant moron of seismic proportions.
Personally, I'm veering towards the latter.
A wholly shameful and pretty digusting to spout out, even by his ever diminishing standards. He deserves every bit of criticism he's receiving, and more.
The best part of this debacle was the response from the man who articulated, in the moment and to his face, what was wrong with what he was saying. I haven't seen the whole interview but it seemed as though the presenters were not prepared to challlenge him on it.
Apparently they are 'rules' about how non black people should approach this subject.
How Non-Black People Can Talk About Kanye While Staying in their Lane
Hes losing it or lost
Potentially dangerous ammunition for the racists out there. Usually the type who can't stand rap/hiphop etc will now be quoting Kanye.
glad I listened to the whole interview before making judgement on the sensationalised headline.
Go on ...
I've been calling bullshit on this clown for about ten years. I'm not remotely surprised he's gone down the alt-right rabbit hole, he's been at Donald Trump levels of brainless narcissism for a long time now.
Indeed. Stay in your lane, white people.
His music is shit anyway. At least Prince could get away with all the eccentric stuff because he was talented. Kanye West however is about as interesting to listen to as my washing machine spinning around.
Tbf it's a pretty big lane...
'he's not prince' is a bit unfair, I mean who is. I enjoyed his stuff around the Jesus Walks era and he is undeniably a talented musician and rapper.
It's an apt comparison. Morrissey's increasingly provocative views (of which he is fully entitled to express, of course - and be called out upon, too)) is a source of great disappointment. He is, without doubt, one of the finest songwriters of his generation and with The Smiths, one of best frontmen too. Sadly though, over time he seems to have become very bitter and self-absorbed; the witticisms and barbs have become less humorous and soured more with resentment and ignorance. A great pity.
Comparing Kanye West to Prince is like comparing Pink to Patti Smith. It's just not on.
It wasn't a Prince v Kanye off. I could've chosen anyone tbh.
Point is he doesn't get a pass because his music is toilet.
Maybe you're in the wrong lane. The markings can be ambiguous.
He raps like a man who has never heard actual rapping, but only had the concept explained to him very briefly by someone who didn't know a lot about it. Some of his lines are hilariously stupid, or would be if the cunt responsible for them hadn't somehow got himself venerated as some kind of cultural juggernaut.
Listening to Kanye West is like hearing about this amazing new guitar hero and then going to one of his gigs and seeing a man actually just playing Guitar Hero.
His first album is great, and he has taken hip hop in a different direction from the utter shit we are presented with in the last decade or so.
However, it has been clear for a while now he's mentally ill. And for certain he has narcissistic personality disorder, but this is camouflaged by working in the rap music industry which has a higher than average percentage of absolute nobheads
A black popstar's ludicrous egotistical comments get far more attention and condemnation than a white popstar's ludicrous egotistical comments. I wonder why that is?
Separate names with a comma.
