The superficial deafening of name dropping demonstrates how far removed Kanye is from his original fan base. He used the system and Hip Hop to build up an empire on false propaganda and an artificial flow just to rub elbows with Marc Jacobs and Anna Wintour? You have stripped every authentic hair on you to become an elitist that only cares about his leather and fur coats. Children in Chicago don’t have blankets or Christmas trees this year, but you have more pressing issues with your sewing machine. Mr. West lately seems Narcissistic and complex to anyone with clarity and perception.
When Kanye West told the world that “George Bush Doesn’t Care About Black People!” the world laughed but agreed with him for speaking up for minorities. Now, Kanye West has his entire clothing line based on the Confederate Flag. I agree it is form of heritage in South Carolina, but we lost the Confederacy and most of the bodies that became “Strange Fruit” have that same flag flying in the background. However, even after pretending he didn’t understand the confusion, over his clothing line has a song using the Billie Holiday song that she wrote when she saw her first Lynching and it haunted her. So where is the real Kanye West?
I miss his style, beats,and love for his culture.
