Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
I think Kanye is a fantastic artist, some of the shit he did on his last two albums production wise and artistically is pretty amazing. But when he does interviews like the radio 1 with Zane Lowe the other day that's being talked about, how can he expect to be taken seriously and then complain about not being taken seriously? I mean, it was entertaining as hell, and he came out with some pretty good stuff, but when he gets asked a question about his music and then it ends up in an out burst about race and class and discrimination etc, he comes off as very childish. He says people are irritated by him calling himself a god and the best artist on the planet because he's black and if a white person says it then people would be fine with it, that's such a deluded and ridiculous thing to come out with especially when the question had nothing to do with his response.
I do understand the frustration, because that video above is very irritating to watch, and he is attacked by the media a lot, but like was already said, he is s smart guy, but his temper is ridiculous and if he learned to control it he'd be much better off.
