..i do not think much of kanye
The album cover is on the sick side. I do not call that ART I call it a sickness!
I like Kanye, love his music, but ever since his mother's death he's been sort of off on the deep in... We knew Kanye's mother was his stability, anchor and his shield. And now that she's gone he's been lost. Sometimes it looks as if he's fighting some unseen/unknown forces within.
There's a lot going on behind those eyes of his.....
Wow that Brother is a genius. In a time where creativity and powerful lyrics are rare is putting that dead stuff called Hip Hop to its last shining. He changed the second verse where he diss SNL for a more coded and more powerful verse.
The brown hero, live from Ground Zero
Machine gun flow, made her get a Ross Perot
And this is disestablishmentarianism
With my night goggles on, got military vision
And it’s still a very Christian way to think about livin’
When you prayin’ for freedom ’cause your mind been in prison
‘Cause they tryin’ to control every single big decision
You ain’t effin’ the system, then why the eff is you livin’?
Look, dawg, you can cop whatever suits you on
Three-piece, cuff links and the accoutrements
They been feedin’ us ish without the nutrients
So I’m back with another hit to let the truth be known
And your boy still fresh with the Gucci on
Them Italians sure know how to make what the moodies want
And they really can’t take what Doobie on
But I be on the same thing ’til you prove me wrong
Wow,props to Kanye man, i hope it will not be on the list of all those poet that the devil lead to death like Bob Marley,Jimi Hendrix,Tupac,Micheal Jackson and the list goes on!
..miles davis was a genius, kanye not so much
I think the Art matches the Title.. "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy"
I think quality of it is low.. it is technically underwhelming.. certainly not
up to the level of lyricism or his musicality.. and I can see why the record
label my have balked at it.. but I don't think that makes him crazy.. it's his
conception.. his art.. his perspective.
remember, it wasn't too long ago that a black person that wanted to put
their own picture on their album cover was considered "crazy"..
the same reason was given to them.. The Walmarts of the world won't
carry the record.. the oh-so-innocent citizenry aren't ready for that yet..
it' was bull then.. and it's bull now.. every other channel on TV has got
something murder-related show on it.. violence is in everything and
everywhere.. and that is far more dangerous than an artist rendering
a naked body.. even a naked white body over a brown one..
and make no mistake.. it's the colors that are the source of the beef.
