Ok I'm not much of a shit talker or a mass media follower, but I was watching some interviews with Kanye last night trying to figure out why his fans hold such a high opinion of him, and in particular, his intelligence.
What I found out was that this guy is delusional and weird af (not in a good or artsy way, but as a "something is mising in this guy" sorta thing), but does not seem smart, maybe a bit smarter than the average nig nog, but not exceptionally intelligent by any means.
So, if his music is shit and his personality is shit, why do I hear about him on this board so much?
This is coming from someone who does like NMH and Death Grips (rarely, but still), but I just can't find the appeal in Kanye's music and this isn't helped at all now that I know the guy behind it is a fucking retard.
>MEET YOU IN ARTEX FETUS
>ROMULUS AND REMUS
What I like about Kanye is that he is always trying to be the best and even though he's arguably the most respected rapper in the game he continues to make great albums with a chip on his shoulder and never settle with one sound. Kanye is a true innovator and artist.
If you ever need proof that this board is populated almost entirely by stupid-ass whites, just pay attention to how often this "hur dur it was 300 SPARTANS not ROMANS" meme comes up.
>He [Kanye] goes "YO I SPOKE TO OBAMA, AND I TOLD HIM: BARRY, MY NIGGA, YOU ARE NOT TAKING THE RIGHT MEETINGS DOG"
>What was pussy like in the 60s?
>Eve made Adam bite the apple and ever since then it’s been illegal to be naked
>I'm going to name records that you'll think are cheesy - but like, J-Kwon, "Tipsy." People would think that's like a lower-quality, less intellectual form of hip-hop, but that's always my No. 1.
>I knew when I wrote the line "light-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson" [from the song "Slow Jamz"] I was going to be a big star.
>I understand culture. I am the nucleus
How do people hate Kanye?
Nearly every line in that chorus (as well as the verses) are movie references. So it's more likely he was referencing the film 300, not making a secret code that is otherwise completely out of context with his own persona, let alone the tone of the song itself.
