This post has been a long time coming. I’ve mentioned in past comments many things I didn’t like about Kanye West. But I’ve never did an actually post about him. I never got around to it. I could have easily had him in a Tales of Buffoonery post. Well a few followers have told me they’d like to see a post about him,so here goes. Kanye West released his debut CD on February 10,2004. It was The College Dropout and critics were raving. He was on Roc-A-Fella records so of course Jay Z made sure he got plenty of press. many rap fans were excited to hear a new artist drop some socially conscious lyrics. It was something you don’t hear very often on mainstream radio stations. He wasn’t exactly Chuck D or KRS ONE but West did sprinkle his music with a few gems that made people think. In the song Murder to Excellence he touched on high murder rates in Chicago. He rapped:
“Is it genocide?
Cause I can still hear his mama cry
Know the family traumatized
Shots left holes in his face about piranha-sized
The old pastor closed the cold casket
And said the church ain’t got enough room for all the tombs
It’s a war going on outside we ain’t safe from
I feel the pain in my city wherever I go
314 soldiers died in Iraq, 509 died in Chicago”
In the song Diamonds from Sierra Leone he talked about civil war conflict in African countries. He said:
“See, a part of me saying: “Keep shining”
How? When I know what a blood diamond is
Though it’s thousands of miles away
Sierra Leone connects to what we go through today
Over here it’s a drug trade, we die from drugs
Over there they die from what we buy from drugs
The diamonds, the chains, the bracelets, the charmses
I thought my Jesus-piece was so harmless
Til I seen a picture of a shorty armless”
And over the years he’s touched on subjects like public education,CIA,slavery,cocaine ,Black Panthers and urban violence. And most people remember back in 2005 there was Hurricane Katrina. During a televised concert for Hurricane relief,Kanye said President Bush doesn’t care about black people. But Kanye is one of those artist that contradict themselves a lot. He us what I call “pseudo-consciousness”. He makes those who are really Pan-African,Afrocentric and socailly conscious look bad. He gives us all a bad name that speak out on these issues and want to see real change.He don’t think he’s really genuine when he says it. He may say things that make you think but it’s designed to make you think he’s deep. When he’s really far from it. One of the biggest contradiction is his choice of women. This man has horrible taste. It has shown me his slow progression into becoming a self-hating coon.One of his first girlfriend was a black woman named Sumeke Rainey. She was with him years before he became famous. But has he his career took off he dumped her. Then from (2004-2005) he dated Brooke Crittendon who was a reality show star. She was on the BET show Harlem Heights. That relationship fizzled after awhile. But what do you expect? Reality celebs don’t seem that stable to me. But then again,neither does Kanye.
In (2006-2008) he started dating interior designer Alexis Phifer. Many insiders say they were truly in love. They really understood each other. She was there to support him when his mother passed away. I guess he thought she was “the one” since he proposed to her. But in the end he called it off. I noticed that after his mother died his personality changed. He seemed to be withdrawn and in a depressive state. It all went downhill from there.
Kanye had really lost his mind when he started dating Amber Rose. Rose is a stripper/model/actress and attention whore. This racially ambiguous freak is the last thing Kanye needed to be with. But I guess he was in pain and need some comfort. And I’m sure this she-devil was more than willing to give him all he wanted. They dated from 2008-2010 although it seemed like forever. They were always on social media and gossip columns. Also he helped Rose gain more fame and notoriety. Which I’m sure was the whole point anway.
But I knew Kanye had sold his soul to the devil when he married Kim Kardashian. He had hit rock bottom when he hooked up with this creature. The tramp of all tramps. The modern day whore of Babylon. Kim is the representation of all that is wrong with this immoral,materilistic and decadent culture. American culture is filled with debauchery. And Kanye and Kim are the king and queen of degeneracy. Kanye makes me upset because he fell into the stereotype of the successful black man who ditches black women and gets a white woman. And yes she’s white. I don’t want to hear any crap about Kim being Armenian. Yes I know they are an ethnic group but I don’t consider her a “woman of color”. She’s just a whore that got famous doing a sex tape with a washed up R&B singer Ray J.
This is not a woman you marry. Kim is not a woman you bring home to your mother. Kim is the furthest thing from a virtuous woman. She’s just an attention whore whos has slept with many black rappers,singers,actors and athletes. And she’s wears fake braids in her hair and has a fake booty. Just a sad imitation of a black woman. Kanye should’ve just got a real sista in the first place. There are plenty of beautiful intelligent black women that would be more than happy to get with Kanye. But he fell for the trap.I had high hopes for Kanye. Many others did as well. He could’ve been a great voice for his generation. But he sold out for fame,fortune and white validation. He doesn’t speak for the oppressed at all. He is just a sellout puppet. He is useless in the fight for black liberation. Do not me fooled because he might sprinkle his lyrics with some consciousness now and then.
This picture(above) says it all. Kanye is finally truly happy. He has his father/mother in law Caitlyn Jenner,his white wife and mulatto child. And not a another black person in sight! He has finally achieved the Amerikkkan dream. Kanye has showed us what happens when you lose self respect,dignity and racial pride. The highest level of coonery!
