The Agony and the Ecstasy of Kanye West
A Fan’s Response to Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Cover Art
I am a huge fan of Kanye West. To the point that I often refer to him as Yesus because he is flawless, wonderful, and always right (at least in his own mind). So when a good friend of mine asked me on Facebook, “what did you think of [Kanye West’s] latest interview???” I knew I wouldn’t be able to do anything but write an essay on Kanye West and the egotistically driven torture he puts himself and and his fans through.
Here was my response on the Today Interview with Matt Lauer:

Blacks Call Everything Racist, The Sky is Still Blue
I don’t usually like to put other people on blast but I am sick and tired of every time a black man is in a photo with a white woman, niggas want to call it racist.
Case in point, Miss Jia recently blogged about this David La Chapelle photo that featured Kanye “Invite My Ass on Stage to Destory a White Girl’s Moment” West and Lady “I’ll Wear Anything to Take Away from My Face” Gaga.
Doc West, Man of Platinum & Lady Jungle
This is what Miss Jia had to say about the image:
it reminds me of the controversy a while back regarding THIS photo of Lebron James and Gisele Bundchen or THESE photos of Naomi Campbell. A lot of people felt that the images were considered “racist,” as they presented Blacks as savage animals. Hmm…
Her assertion that this image is “suspect” not only annoys me because A) she doesn’t recognize that LaChapelle was doing a homage to pulp fiction heroes, more specifically Doc Savage, Man of Bronze and B) Blacks are the first ones to start screaming “that’s racist” any time racial relations are portrayed. Especially if Blacks aren’t the “star” (which by the way ‘Ye is in this image. He’s he “hero” after all).
What kills me about Black youth calling every-fucking-thing racist is they have no fucking clue what real racism is! With all our bling worshiping, booty smacking and irrational demands (why is it the nigga that is most disrespectful demanding the most fucking respect?), we have forgotten as a people what is real racism looks and feels like.
For you niggas that was sleeping, THIS IS RACISM, THIS IS FUCKING RACISM, and THIS IS MOTHERFUCKING RACISM!
I would link back to her but I don’t want to help put money in her pocket for interpretation fail.

Drake isn't at the top but he could definately be one.
9. 50 Cent
7. Young Jeezy
6. Gucci Mane
5. Rick Ross
4. Kanye West
2. Lil Wayne
What the fuck at the list of hottest MCs of 2009 as decided by MTV. I agree with 100% with 1st and 2nd, Drake should not be number 3 (and I’m saying this as a huge fan). Also where the fuck is Eminem (I’m not even a fan and I realize his skill and appeal) and Nas (how the fuck did MTV ignore one of the greatest MCs of all time on this list?). Yeah Untitled aka Nigger was released in 2008 but Hero got them plays in 2009. This just proves to me that MTV is not only full of shit but have no clue what the fuck they are talking about if they seriously have Rick Ross and 50 Cent on this list. All 50 did this year was heckle Rick Ross and put out fucking video games. As for Rick Ross, are you fucking kidding? Ricky shouldn’t be on this list and Deeper Than Rap was fucking shit and sold the least of all the rappers on this fucking list so that nigga being number 5 is a fucking joke.
This is how that list should read:
9. Gucci Mane
7. Young Jeezy
6. Kanye West
5. Drake (He’s only this high because I want him)
2. Lil Wayne
One more thing, MTV fuck you for putting Raekwon the Chef on this list but never playing any of his music on your channel.
