Kanye West is one of the most brilliant rap artists of our time!
From pissing off the president of the United States, interrupting acceptance speeches and blasting the GRAMMYs, in the last most recent years, I personally can’t think of a rap artist with a buoyant personality, who has made it cool to be “the bad guy”. Honestly, no one can do it like Kanye, so in essence of Kaye Week, I like to reflect on one of my favorite / most memorable moments of Kanye West.
It was during a live TV fundraiser for the victims of Hurricane Katrina that Kanye West ignored the teleprompter and went AWOL for a minute on former President George Bush. Kanye called out the media’s portrayal of Katrina’s black victims and then said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” Standing on his right side was funny guy Mike Myers, who stared motionless into the camera which were soon cut. This pivotal moment in Yeezy history was the birth of Kanye West being Kanye West, giving a lengthy time line of events, all portraying his boisterous personality and telling us what was on his mind. What’s wrong with that?
Although Kanye West comes off as the big bad, you got to admit, he is very strategic with his vocal outbursts. The same week Kanye went off in front of millions of viewers, he released the Late Registration album, which went on to sell 3.5 million copies. That’s brilliant bishes!
