He tries so hard to sound smart and articulate but ends up just sounding like an idiot. What a tool.

Kanye is insane, but the interview annoyed me a couple of times too with his own hypocrisy. He calls himself Charlamagne the God, but refers to Kanye as egotistical?

He also at one point drops the n-bomb casually, and then later says you can't turn the confederate flag positive just like you can't turn the n-word positive? Huh?

Yet he still makes great music and has people like the OP making threads about him not matter how looney or a tool you all think he is.

Yeah, but they both made good points. Charlamagne wasn't kissing his ass like many interviewers do musicians. Kanye sported a Confederate Flag because its controversial. It's not completely unlike how some pink rockers wore swatzikas. People like associating themselves with negative symbols.

But I see Kanye's points about rappers and/or minorities being marginalized and restricted from expanding into larger areas of consumer culture.


That said, he sounds ridiculous saying he and Kim aren't there yet financially, to keep their kid safe or secure. I totally agree with him when he says that it would be mutually beneficial for clothing companies to allow him more creative control or to take him more seriously. He's an artist and wants to have as big as an audience as possible and has proven successful in all his ventures. But claiming its all for his children sounds like an excuse I hear obscenely rich families say for themselves when excusing greed. He's aware of people being slaves to consumerism yet he not not only promotes material wealth, he wants to part of the problem that says expensive cars and clothing determines your value as a human being. But hey, if he's the one at the top, pushing that, that's progress right?

Yeah, Kanye's not stupid. He wears confederate flags to keep his name in the news, which further serves as free advertising for his latest album. Kinda like Miley doing a weird VMA performance and getting naked in videos to remind people she has an album.
I liked Yeezus. Charlamagnes crazy to say it was wack.

I wholeheartedly agree with everything Charlamagne said. Look up "narcissist" and "hypocrite" in the dictionary and you'll find pictures of Kanye, you won't find his picture next to "genius".

Best part is when he says the George Bush moment and the Beyonce/Taylor Swift moment were going to be written about in history books.

Guy thinks entertainment gossip is history.

I like Kanye's music. But he sounds like he's going to cry because Nike told him that his shoes weren't quite ready to come out. He does get his a-- handed to him during this and it's refreshing to hear someone not kiss a celeb's butt in one of these interviews.

Here's another recent one where he went nuts on Sway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grMSA5WlN8s#t=49

It's pretty clear that he wants desperately not to fade out. And for most artists to do that they need to branch out into other areas in order to stay "relevant." And his only chance to get into another successful career is while his rap career is still hot.

I wonder how much of it is an act and how much of it is Kanye truly being an egomaniac that just so happens to be one of the most talented producers on the planet. I can't stand his personal antics but his latest album is the synthesis of several different styles of music from the past decade. He's this generation's Dr. Dre.

Didn't W write a memoir about his presidency and list the Kanye moment as 'the worst moment in his term'

Didn't know he put Chief Keef on his album. Kanye is talking about how the combined fortunes of himself and the Kardashians is not enough to keep his daughter safe and yet he sees no problem with having a piece of shit on his album who promotes gang violence in Chicago, raps about selling drugs, and brags about his music making the murder rate go up.

Kanye West declares that vanilla is now the number one favorite flavor of ice cream because he was photographed licking some.

Let's be honest too, his relationship with KK is bound to put him at the center of any and all publicity, she's a tabloid queen.

Kanye's really interesting. It goes without saying that he's a great producer and has a terrific ear, but he's absolutely terrible as an MC. I've said it before but don't get why so many critics give him a pass on his ridiculously sophomoric, misogynistic and phoned-in lyrics. In general, too often people give rap artists passes for idiotic, despicable crap and Kanye is exhibit A. I'm not easily offended, but when people are putting out dumb-ass shit like "The New Workout Plan" and critics are calling him a "genius" I think we have a problem. "Yeezus" made my head hurt it's so stupid, self-justifying and clueless. It's a shame because that album is unbelievably well produced.

Google Play is currently offering Yeezus for free (as well as Chvrches' album). Just FYI.
