I've always been at the mercy of the press, but no more... The media tried to demonize me. They wanted y'all to believe I was a monster in real life so you guys wouldn't listen or buy my music anymore. I feel like they were waiting for the opportunity to go in all the way on me, and when it came, they beat me to a pulp. Even now a lot of articles start their first two paragraphs about how much of an bad person I am.

I accept the idea (ideal) that perception is reality. When I say perception is reality I mean whatever you think is the truth is your truth. Some people's truth is Kanye is racist—It's not my truth, but I do believe it's my Karma... walk with me...

With the help of strong will, a lack of empathy, a li'l alcohol, and extremely distasteful and bad timing, I became George Bush over night. How deep is the scar? I bled hard. Cancelled [a] tour with the number one pop star in the world. Closed the doors of my clothing office. Had to let employees go.

For the first time, I felt the impact of my brash actions. People booed when I would go to concerts and the performer mentioned my name. Remember in Anchor Man when Ron Burgandy cursed on air, and the entire city turned on him? But this wasn't a joke. This was and is my real life.

There are people who don't dislike me... they absolutely hate me! I was chilling with this white girl, having a conversation, and she cut me off and said, ‘Hold up—I thought you didn't like us.' That's when you realize perception is reality.

I've been straying from this subject on Twitter but I have to give it to you guys raw now. If you Google "bad person," my face may very well pop up 2 pages into the search. Some people say, ‘Why worry about the haters?' This is bigger than just the concept of haters. I have a mission in life to bring truth and beauty through my music and the visuals that anchor around it.

The media has successfully diminished the "receptive" audience of (3rd person) KANYE WEST. Taking a 15 second blip, the media have successfully painted the image of the ANGRY BLACK MAN, The King Kong theory. I'm the guy who, at one point, could perform the Justin Timberlake on stage and everyone would be sooo happy that I was there.

People tweeted that they wish I was dead... No listen. They wanted me to die, people. I carry that. I smile and take pictures through that. I wear my scars. It's almost like I have to wear a suit to juxtapose my image. And I won't lie: It works.

I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that's so beautiful, and I want her to have it. If she won't take it then I'll perform it for her. She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows. She had no idea what hit her. She's just a li'l girl with dreams like the rest of us. She deserves the apology more than anyone. Thank you Biz Stone and Evan Williams for creating a platform where we can communicate directly. We're both artists, and the media and managers are trying to get between us. Everyone wants to capitalize off this in some way. I'm ready to get out of my own way. The ego is overdone... like hoodies.

I know there are family members friends and fans that have literally fought for me. There are people who have named their kids after me—can you imagine that next day in school. Even though I don't have kids, I am responsible for those who love and represent me and what they have to deal with on a day to day, defending "The American Psycho."

I watched Justin Timberlake at the Grammies lose every televised award including album of the year, which the Dixie Chicks won. I would have run on stage for Justin that night because Sexy Back (in my mind) was that important, that impactful to our culture.

It's not about race, America. No one in our position ever stands up and says anything anymore. I have given my awards to other groups multiple times on national TV; they never showed that this past year, during the massacre of Kanye.

Who's seen the play Wicked? I've seen it 4 times! Other than loving the music acting and costumes... it's my story! The Wicked Witch of the West basically is so convicted to tell her truth [that] when she does it, she is outcast by society and turned wicked.

With new-found humility, who am I to run on stage? I would never ever again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down. It is distasteful to cut people off as a general rule. What's the point of dressing tastefully if I'm going to act the complete opposite? Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child. When I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said GROW UP KANYE. I take the responsibility for my actions. I am not a bad person. Even in that moment I was only trying to do good.

But people don't always need my help. Beyonce didn't need that. MTV didn't need that. And Taylor and her family, friends, and fans definitely didn't want or need that.

These aren't regular tweets... this is stream of consciousness... I want you guys to know and feel where my head is at... It feels like the movie Heat, when you wanted Deniro to make it... You want the bad guy to make it.

These tweets have no manager, no publicist, no grammar checking [ed: they do now.]... this is raw. Humanity and Empathy are two of the four principles at facebook. Those were the two principles I was missing on that evening.

Why are there so many tweets? Well, this isn't a simple subject. There are layers to this beyond me running on stage. You've got the top layer: Kanye's rude! (If I speak in 3rd person it's because I'm quoting people; sometimes I forget to put [in] the quotations. You know my grammar.) You've got a layer of order... this is how things are supposed to go, this is how it's always been. etc; you've got a layer of-what is [it], reality? You really want this guy to die over an award show? Wooooooow... You've got the Media play... Who benefitted off of the moment? MTV? JAY LENO? BEYONCE? ALL FORMS OF MEDIA? TAYLOR? KANYE WEST? Who gained? Who lost?

Walk with me people... let's break this down for real now. I might get in trouble again. WHO BENEFITED, FOR REAL, PEOPLE? A year later where do we stand?

There's a layer of ‘hey Kanye said what I was thinking.' There's a layer of... Entertainment: We are entertainers and this is only TV, not the War. Why was it made into such a race issue? Taylor loves rap music... I love country music. TAYLOR LOVES RAP MUSIC... I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC. When I write songs like Heartless, I always say "is this melody good enough to be a country song or a broadway song?"

I've hurt, I've bled, I've learned. I only want to do good. I am passionate. I am human. I am real.

I wish I could meet every hater. I wish I could talk to every hater face to face, and change their opinion of me, one conversation at a time. I wish they all knew how much I really cared about music and pop culture and art and people's feelings. I wish they could accept that I've grown and only want to do good for the world. I want to help as many people as I can. I want to help starting with the music and ending with the smile. I want to win their hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses with a clean opinion.

It starts with this: I'm sorry Taylor.

nobody actually likes these people. there was just a snowball effect of people pretending to until they were super famous billionaires. I'm with abe on this one guys.

High schoolers and low IQ adults make them famous. Once they get rich and famous 95% of adults start irrationally hating them, to combat this other 5% (also known as the 2hip4u crowd) ironically start loving the crap out of them. Kanye isn't the worst trend to come along, some of his songs are good, but he's nothing special. Unfortunately everyone thinks you either need to hate him with the fury of 1000 suns, or worship the ground he walks on.

Maybe so.  But the line between "being nuts" and "coming across as nuts" is a fine one.  As Vonnegut says, "we must be careful what we pretend to be."

I'm not saying it hasn't helped his career.  But I was under the impression that you were saying he wasn't nuts but was only pretending to be nuts.  But if he actually is crazy, then that doesn't seem like such a good deal for him.

Would you sacrifice your sanity for being insanely wealthy?

I'm just saying that the line between nuts and pretending to be nuts isn't trivial.  At least not for him.

Not sure that wealth and "being nuts" are negatively correlated. 

Also, not sure that what you described necessarily = happiness and self-actualization, but it might depending upon the person. 

Money isn't a tool for everyone, sometimes it is an end that can never be achieved.  Sometimes it is a trap.

"Fame" is much more likely to be a trap and to lead to "being nuts" which is the most relevant issue.

I really don't think he's nuts, at all. He's definitely more bold than most people, but does that make someone nuts? He isn't risking life and limb. He isn't risking losing friends or family. He certainly isn't hurting career. So what's the harm? He confuses White America and makes them dislike him?

I don't think we've concluded anything about his mental health, nor are we probably in a good position to judge it.  I just think that there are some very obvious distortions to your life that are inherent in being as famous as Kanye is.  That clearly has consequences, although they are not the same for everyone.

On the contrary, white people love Kanye. Old white people hate him, but young white people love him. He's an angry African-American and white people eat that crap up because it entertains them and reduces the African-American culture. Most white people think African-Americans are all young, angry men. So when show ponies like Kanye have these public meltdowns it entertains young white people because it plays up the stereotypes they want to believe. It's similar to how in the 90s there was a "goofball" African-American stereotype (Steve Urkel, Fresh Prince etc) that white people loved to laugh at. Now they love to laugh at the "angry black man".

I really don't think he's nuts, at all. He's definitely more bold than most people, but does that make someone nuts? He isn't risking life and limb. He isn't risking losing friends or family. He certainly isn't hurting career. So what's the harm? He confuses White America and makes them dislike him?

(loved that storify, BTW)

On the contrary, white people love Kanye. Old white people hate him, but young white people love him. He's an angry African-American and white people eat that crap up because it entertains them and reduces the African-American culture. Most white people think African-Americans are all young, angry men. So when show ponies like Kanye have these public meltdowns it entertains young white people because it plays up the stereotypes they want to believe. It's similar to how in the 90s there was a "goofball" African-American stereotype (Steve Urkel, Fresh Prince etc) that white people loved to laugh at. Now they love to laugh at the "angry black man".

I think you thought this up yourself and now you think its true.

Mayweather is the highest paid athlete because he's made a career out of being the angry negro. White people and latins are paying insane figures to see him be beat and to shut his black ass up. Nothing is greater than being the negro heel. Why do you think he rarely fights black fighters(only 2 in his last 10 fights going back to 2006)? There's no money in that.

He didn't say ANY, nor did he mean any/all, nor did he say racist. I wouldn't agree with any of that. I don't know how anyone can deny that a large sector of the white public enjoys black people acting out. Blackface and cooning has been around since blacks have been here.

manziel is a better sports analogy IMO (probably because i don't follow boxing anymore).  very talented person with huge ego and backs it up.  people hate both of them because they are cunts.  the fact that they are so talented and can still make so many people hate them just shows how big of cunts they are.

kanye has more of the delusional god complex, and whines that people don't love him after he does cunty actions (which makes him a bigger $!#*), but it's similar.

I don't know about Mayweather.  I mean, that was definitely the case back when there was always a next great white hype being promoted forward and the country watched Friday Night Fights, but it seems like most white ppl have given up having a white contender and this is probably why the sport isn't as popular to the large masses as before.  White ppl have seemed to move to MMA, where, guess what, there are white ppl participating and it is popular as crap.  I guess, in short, I am saying that the color thing def seems to matter, but I don't think it is about seeing the black guy lose in boxing these days. 

Also, I like about half of Kanye's stuff because it is good hip hop.  My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is ridic good.

Kanye is great at what he does and is also stricken with major character flaws. When someone can have millions of fans, be awesome at his chosen life's work, become very wealthy and still find the need to whine about being misunderstood or not shown enough love or whatever. If he really loved himself, he wouldn't be offended so easily.

As far as the white people don't like Kanye thing. He benefits greatly from that. It gives him a continual thing to whine about. It makes him very wealthy. Millions of whites will support him and buy his records if for no other reason than to distance themselves from the mass of whites that don't like him. They will get on message boards and trumpet the Kanye party line about racists not liking him, etc. Support him through his crazy crap because "other people don't understand."

Kanye is a very talented very flawed individual. Nothing remarkable about him in the grand scheme. Some get rich and famous, some drink and drug themselves into oblivion. Just depends upon the breaks we receive along the way.

reread his post.

On the contrary, white people love Kanye. Old white people hate him, but young white people love him. He's an angry African-American and white people eat that crap up because it entertains them and reduces the African-American culture. Most white people think African-Americans are all young, angry men. So when show ponies like Kanye have these public meltdowns it entertains young white people because it plays up the stereotypes they want to believe. It's similar to how in the 90s there was a "goofball" African-American stereotype (Steve Urkel, Fresh Prince etc) that white people loved to laugh at. Now they love to laugh at the "angry black man".

I don't care if he thinks I'm racist, but I think what he says demeans the work of black men in a way similar to what Kimmel did. And there are far better candidates for "angry black man" in hip hop that lack the open vulnerability and insecurity that Kanye displays. But they aren't as popular because they aren't nearly as good.

Again, he would have a point if someone with the talent of Nelly had risen to Kanye's level. No one today, white or black, is pushing boundaries with music at the level of Kanye while maintaining enormous commercial success. No one really has in the past few decades with perhaps the exception of Radiohead (and IMO it's debatable that they should be considered to be on his level.)

You're trolling about the Kimmel stuff, right? Yeah, definitely.

Why do you keep talking about his talent like mainstream America takes that analytical approach? Is it not clear to you that he's talking about people who like Kanye songs they hear on the radio but still think of George Bush, Taylor Swift, and Kim Kardashian when they talk to their buddies about 'Ye? He's not talking about people who spent their money on 808s or Yeesus.

Of course Kanye isn't the best voice for angry black man, but he is for the people that Abe is talking about. His popularity makes him an easy target for people that Abe's describing. These people don't have an extensive hip hop catalog. That being said I feel like you are minimizing his anger, WTT seemed to me a giant middle finger to these people.

Did you read the tweets? I don't necessarily agree with everything, but it's an interesting perspective that at least affected the way I looked at the skit.

I think a general point the person is trying to make is that if Thom Yorke said something similar to what Kanye said, he wouldn't have been ridiculed the same way. I could be wrong.

I read the tweets and I had a hard time figuring who the author was directing her tweets at.  Who exactly isn't taking him as seriously as they should be?  Jimmy Kimel the comedian who routinely parodies celebrities?  My mom who can't name a single Kanye song?  Critics who are racist? Me?  I just have no idea who isn't showing Kanye West the respect he deserves.

The Thom York comparison is off.  Kanye West is a much higher profile name than Thom Yorke, in 2013 America at least.  When is the last time Radiohead was fodder for late night talk shows?  If Miley went out there and said something similar to what Kanye said, it would be just as big of a crap show.  Kanye West catches crap like the stuff Kimel did because he's one of the most famous people on the planet and he routinely says crazy, contentious crap.

Did you actually listen to the interview the skit was based on?  Cause it seems like you didn't.

He sounded like a pouty child.   Having a child read his lines is funny because he sounded like a child in the interview.  I don't see what is so complicated here.

Put Liam Gallagher in the same situation circa 2000(?) and the same skit would be funny.  You bringing race into any of this is ridiculous.

I did watch the interview (at least the first part), and I didn't think he sounded like a child at all. I saw someone extremely passionate about his work who feels he is wrongly ignored in certain circles, but not a child.

You definitely have a point about Gallagher 15 years ago, but I don't think people cared about his rants - I'm guessing he went on many rants about people making fun of him but they were brushed aside and barely noticed.

Well that's a difference in perception I guess.  I heard the interview before I knew what the skit was and about 2 minutes in I'm saying "stop whining that companies won't work with you and go make the crap yourself." he's mad that nike won't let him run their company, so what!  Start your own rough ridin' shoe company!

One of the consequences of being whiney, egotistical and difficult to work with is that people won't want to work with you.  Everything he was whining about is 100 percent a product of his past actions.

Is he whining?  It sounds more like just a stream of consciousness.

When asked about where the disjointed feel for Yeezus came from, he answers by saying it came from going to the louvre and furniture exhibits and learning about architecture and being frustrated that no one is taking him seriously as a clothing backer (?) and then he talks about Michael Jackson in the context of civil rights and then about his family's role in the civil rights movement then he talks about his truman showboat (i have no idea what he says there, is that a turn of phrase i don't understand? it's around the 10:20 mark) and about how he's evolved into a "product person" ranging from clothing to water bottle design to architecture to "everything you can think about" and then it's back to his role in the modern civil rights movement then it's back to his South Park photo and then he credits south park with rhetorical question about whether there'd be a giovanti (?) in the hood without his south park photo and about how people were mean to him about him wearing skinny jeans and then he credits himself for bringing real rap back and then talks again about how people are mean to him in internet comments and not giving him credit for bringing tons of product to humanity and then about how he reminds Pusher T to keep it real and brings it all back as some kind of extended metaphor for the pressures modern day artists succumb to in order to fit into the "culture," but he's trying to bust down that culture or at least find his own role in it in terms of how ahead of the leather jogging pants craze he was and how many dinners with Anna Winter he has and then asks how many people you see wearing leather jogging pants these days and brings it all home with how rap is the new rock and roll and Kanye's the biggest rapper/rock and roll guy in the world.

Somewhere in there he was upset that people classify his "motivational speeches" as rants.  It looks like there was some whining in there.  There was certainly some whining about Kimmel's skit on twitter.  The interview mostly seemed to consist of random stuff though.

And that's the story of how Yeezus's disjointed feel came about.

"Where my truman show boat has hit the painting."  Okay, so the painting is the walls that kept truman trapped in Seaside and Kanye's saying he's totally become free from the confines of modern "rap"/culture and just gone and done his own thing.

Just so we are clear Jimmy Kimmel doesn't speak for white america any more than Kanye does black america.  This entire episode illustrates that turning people into celebrity spokespeople for their race is unproductive.

When Jimmy Kimmel mocks Kanye's "leather jogging pants" comment it is a joke about class (low brow yuks at high brow absurdity) which is made more preposterous by the fact that a black rap star has inserted himself in to the stratospheres of the 1% and borrowed their tastes.

So yes there is absolutely a racial component to the joke, but some of that is the ridiculousness of Kanye (and Jay Z is even worse) wanting to benefit from an image that keeps them forever having emerged from a ghetto and trading/celebrating in the imagery of that setting (which is not even true of Kanye) while simultaneously trading the in the imagery and participating in the culture of the 1%.  There is a great ironic tension there.  Of course it is based in history, of course it involves race.

But there is something to Jay Z getting all butthurt about Harry Belafonte's comments about Jay's lack of interest in "social responsibility" while constantly using and trading on his past.

You're trolling about the Kimmel stuff, right? Yeah, definitely.

http://storify.com/pushinghoops/why-kanye-is-right-and-kimmel-emblematic <-good points here.

Why do you keep talking about his talent like mainstream America takes that analytical approach? Is it not clear to you that he's talking about people who like Kanye songs they hear on the radio but still think of George Bush, Taylor Swift, and Kim Kardashian when they talk to their buddies about 'Ye? He's not talking about people who spent their money on 808s or Yeesus.


Of course Kanye isn't the best voice for angry black man, but he is for the people that Abe is talking about. His popularity makes him an easy target for people that Abe's describing. These people don't have an extensive hip hop catalog. That being said I feel like you are minimizing his anger, WTT seemed to me a giant middle finger to these people.

I guess we'll just agree to disagree how we interpreted Abe's post, pretty dumb thing to have a disagreement about. Although he did post to clarify and agreed with my interpretation of his post.

I don't think these people like Kanye at all and don't buy his music. Basically, Abe thinks these rants make Kanye popular with racist white people, I say they make him less popular with racist white people. But it was very big of you to take the high road and stay out of this dumb disagreement. Kudos!

That pushinghoops link is rough ridin' absurdly stupid and borders on coonish. FFS it was a comic having a kid read what sounded like a childish rant, Kimmel was not reducing Kanye to grandpappy's little boy. I thought it was funny and I be damned if these panic artists call me racist. Do those jackasses know that Kimmel and Kanye are friends and Kanye's "outrage" was a setup? Kanye is one of the best lyricist of all time, if he was really pissed I'm guessing he would have come up with something better than Kimmel needs good pussy.

Also I was not taking a high road, we're both to blame for debating what we think a poster was thinking, we put much much more thought in that Abe post than he did. I wasn't calling you out, stop being sensitive I like your leather sweatpants.

Jay Z is a complete moron for engaging with Belafonte, and I don't give two shits about if Harry thought oscar Springsteen or Dan Lebatard's dad was more black than Jay Z. Sean knows full well that many black people think this about him and his music but his dumb uncontrollable ego get the best of him.

Now we can discuss the Jimmy Kimmel appearance.

They were both very obviously nervous/shook, especially Jimmy. He seemed legitimately confused/hurt/upset about the racial backlash he got from some extremist morons. Definitely not a set up like I initially thought.  I did LOL at Kanye say he would never and has never performed a publicity stunt, guess he forgot about his "feud" with fiddy.

The interview fell short for me, Jimmy was too shook to challenge Kanye and Kanye just cannot help but to take himself way too seriously. I think like Kanye does that he is a creative genius, he will be better off when he gets comfortable with that so he doesn't turn every media appearance into a monologue attempting to get everyone to believe that he is. I miss the pre Donda death Kanye.

Kanye's line where he said "If I say I'm not a genius I'm lying" LOL

It came off as pompous and he tried to make it seem like if he didn't say it, it was false humility. Perhaps talking about someone else would be good for him.

meh, it was a great line.

and accurate.  I actually liked that part of the interview, his line about all of Hollywood being falsely modest was good too. Personally I hate false modesty, its no different from any other form of insincerity. 

The interview went off of the rails right after that line.

No, I like him because I enjoy his music and he is very entertaining.  Sure, he's an egotistical maniac, but so are the other people who the public seems so outraged that he compared himself to (not the cops/soldiers, that was really weird).

If I were a hater, I'd say he already won them and it is marked down as he won them. He doesn't need to look at them to know he won them. He gets to be someone to deem someone else worthy. Thus keeping himself on the pedestal.

96.5 The BUZZ does this with their ratings every year. They act like they're going out of business and they send their fans into a frenzy and all of a sudden, their ratings are in the top 5 of KC. They have a history of doing it. He's crying wolf to hit a big payday.

The Alec Baldwin stuff is angry guy stuff.

The Kanye stuff isn't angry really, it is just an incredible ego.  Someone with that level of narcissism is likely to crash and burn at some  point.

See, I think Baldwin and Bale were being abusive assholes, not just being "angry guys". Kanye was being an bad person, but he wasn't being abusive.

And the greats have giant egos. It doesn't seem to correlate to crashing and burning. (I could be swayed w/ examples though)

I knew the Diet Coke was jealous of the fries
I knew the McNuggets was jealous of the fries
Even the McRib was jealous of the fries

Everybody was jealous of them french fries

Quote from:  Vince Staples
First of all, I knew wasn’t nothin’ flavorful gonna be cooked at something called “Saturday Spirit,” but I was really focused on gettin’ this done for the set. N*ggas don’t even realize Kanye ghetto gospel. I done played the beginning of “Dark Fantasy” at truce meetings and made real killers hug. N*ggas be thinkin’ bout they mamas. So when I hear gospel sh*t like “Father Stretch My Hands” and realize it’s coming from a Black Trump supporter with blonde hair, it’s hella weird. I guess it makes sense but anyway…

I go in there, hug Kendall, say hi to the family. Kylie called me every other rapper that night. I think she know too many cause I never heard of none of these n*ggas. She took like 8 snaps with me cause she kept calling me the wrong rapper. Eventually, I finally get Kanye away from the rest of them and I’m about to start workin’ on him. But I can’t just say ‘n**** you from Chicago tighten up.’ I gotta butter it up. So I tell him I’m working on a concept EP about if the Panthers were here today. So I’m trying to talk about some Huey P. Newton speeches but Kanye just keeps sayin “yeah yeah yeah” in that white man voice. Like it’s just…under while I’m talkin,’ “yeah yeah yeah.“ I guess that’s what he say now when he’s into something. But it just got in my head. I just started picturing Huey P sayin’ “yeah yeah yeah” onstage and I couldn’t focus. I started talkin’ to him about his daughter’s shoes but that somehow turned into a conversation about what would happen if Machiavelli owned Facebook.

So we go to the dining room for dinner. I volunteer to say grace. I started but they’re like – wait – we have to get the cameras ready. So they get their phones out, all the women start angling for the right picture on their phones…the food getting’ cold. Rob come downstairs, get a plate then take it back upstairs. They finally get their angles. Then Kim say “1,2,3, play” and just say “that’s exactly what I mean!” and laughs. Then the whole family just starts laughing with her and they act like they were talking all along. It was hella quiet just 30 seconds ago. I’m like oh, sh*t they really faked a whole family conversation for the camera! They took one bite of the food, turned the cameras off and left the dining room.

I was like gotta go cuz. It ain’t nothin’ real goin on in there. I was hungry but then I really got scared of the food. I started thinking about that picture of James Harden with Khloe like what is in them mashed potatoes? I snuck out, took an Uber down to Roscoe’s and tried to forget about it. Just pray for Ye, cuz.

First of all, I knew wasn’t nothin’ flavorful gonna be cooked at something called “Saturday Spirit,” but I was really focused on gettin’ this done for the set. N*ggas don’t even realize Kanye ghetto gospel. I done played the beginning of “Dark Fantasy” at truce meetings and made real killers hug. N*ggas be thinkin’ bout they mamas. So when I hear gospel sh*t like “Father Stretch My Hands” and realize it’s coming from a Black Trump supporter with blonde hair, it’s hella weird. I guess it makes sense but anyway…

I go in there, hug Kendall, say hi to the family. Kylie called me every other rapper that night. I think she know too many cause I never heard of none of these n*ggas. She took like 8 snaps with me cause she kept calling me the wrong rapper. Eventually, I finally get Kanye away from the rest of them and I’m about to start workin’ on him. But I can’t just say ‘n**** you from Chicago tighten up.’ I gotta butter it up. So I tell him I’m working on a concept EP about if the Panthers were here today. So I’m trying to talk about some Huey P. Newton speeches but Kanye just keeps sayin “yeah yeah yeah” in that white man voice. Like it’s just…under while I’m talkin,’ “yeah yeah yeah.“ I guess that’s what he say now when he’s into something. But it just got in my head. I just started picturing Huey P sayin’ “yeah yeah yeah” onstage and I couldn’t focus. I started talkin’ to him about his daughter’s shoes but that somehow turned into a conversation about what would happen if Machiavelli owned Facebook.

So we go to the dining room for dinner. I volunteer to say grace. I started but they’re like – wait – we have to get the cameras ready. So they get their phones out, all the women start angling for the right picture on their phones…the food getting’ cold. Rob come downstairs, get a plate then take it back upstairs. They finally get their angles. Then Kim say “1,2,3, play” and just say “that’s exactly what I mean!” and laughs.

No, I absolutely get that he's self-promoting. I do think you can both be dumb and also a rich, good self-promoter. Clams and I were talking about how we don't like his music. We've talked about that for ages.

Curtis has turned into a cryptonerd that has no direction other than the scammy nature of what he says he's invested in.  Tron.  To quote one of his tweets a few weeks ago, "I'm just busy buying more #TRON"

While Tron sits at $.02 after a 12% price increase the past 24hrs.

Sorry Curtis but crypto is going to deal you a worse deck than sports ever did.

He also took out Larsa Pippen and Drake in other tweets. Both have been accused of over sexualizing or grooming their young daughters. He's saying he doesn't want Kim and "Kris Jong-un" to do that to North.

The only work product of his that I am directly familiar with is the one song in one of 33's fantastic videos.  I could name only one Kardashian, before reading MIR's pics above, but now I know 2.  So, you can see that I am not an expert on anything related to Kanye.  BUT, I am willing to go out on limb with my limited information and say that I am pretty sure that he is mentally (and probably emotionally) ill.

if dave chappelle has to fly out to visit you to see if you are ok, you are not ok. that's just my imo.

Yes, very good litmus test.

He was hanging out with Dame Dash at the Cody, Wyoming Wal-Mart today.

I tend to side with 7 that he was having a bipolar episode (he does have an actual diagnosis) but he believed everything he said. Although I'm not dismissing the possibility that he was either drunk or pissed off, his wife and MIL released another statement without him again today. He is in Cody finishing up an album that's supposed to be released on Friday. I think that if he wasn't doing well, like a danger to himself, Dave wouldn't have left him there and Dame Dash wouldn't be taking public field trips with him.

Not as bad as his last meltdown but he's been going off for close to 24 hours. Says he's the new Moses and Nat Turner and his kids will own the masters.

Speaking of being pissed, the Clippers did not have a good time vs Nugget's.
