Kanye West Gets Challenged in Breakfast Club Interview
Ever since “genius musician” Kanye West began his interview tour on BBC One Radio everyone has wondered if and when he would go on The Breakfast Club radio to be challenged by celebrated hater Charlemagne the God.
The long awaited interview was unleashed onto the world yesterday and Mr West was attacked on just about everything you’d imagine. He faced questions on his arrogance, his recent emphasis on money and corporations, he recent video for “Bound 2″ featuring his fiance Kim Kardashian and more.
Oddly enough, the man held his own, speaking many truths to people who were only interested in fluff. When Kanye breaks down the history and billion dollar financial state of Benz, Nike and Apple and all the interviewers can say in response is, “can’t you just go make some hats with your own money?” you know that West is preaching to the wrong choir.
Admittedly, I’m a Kanye stan. Musically his brilliant and a love that he has more to say than popping bottles in the club and turning up. We live in a world where its impolite to pat yourself on the back no matter how successful you are. Kanye bucks that unspoken rule and I love that. As he put it, “[They] want me to BE great, but never SAY that I’m great.”
If you want some thought provoking truth in your life, check out this full interview…temporarily dismiss your preconceived hatred for Kanye’s ego and arrogance that ALL rappers already have in ALL of their music…Imagine that Kanye West is Caucasian if that would help you respect his words more…But I guarantee you can not step away from this interview thinking this is a man who is as ignorant or ill-informed as those that are interviewing him are.
LeSean Thomas’ Cannon Busters
This interview confirms and solidifies why I cannot stand this man. Instead of using this opportunity to push away the image of arrogance and narcissism, this fool willingly embraces it and showers under it’s rain. His relevance in our lives is proof positive that “god” does not exist.
It’s simple Kanye was basicly trying to say that socioeconomic status is real power. That’s why he is letting you know that with all the millions and influence that he and Jay-z has they still don’t run shit the way black people think they do. The thing is closed minded indoctrinated people won’t be able to get what he is trying to say becuase most people live in a mental prison and don’t even know it. My favorite line was George Bush = oil money vs Barack Obama = no money. That spoke volumes to me. I have said this before, reguardless if you like his attitude or not you can’t deny that this guy is a very aware individual. I totally get you Kanye!
quest for knowledge
I listened to this interview earlier today and the one that he did with Sway. Both interviews were interesting to me because they helped me understand more of Kanye’s thought process which for the longest was not clear to me at all. Granted some of his actions in the past I don’t agree with, but I can at least say okay I understand what the man is saying when he talks about big corporations and how we are slaves to them. My only beef is this, Kanye acts like the CEOs of these big corporations were always at the top and didn’t work their way up the ladder to get to the positions that they are at now. Maybe I’m taking this out of context, but I get the impression that he almost expects Nike for example to hand him everything on a silver platter because he is God’s greatest gift to society. Many of these billionaires worked very hard for their money (take Steve Jobs for example since Kayne loves referring to him) and Kanye just expects them to automatically give him a ticket so he can be where they are.
There’s nothing wrong with acknowledging your accomplishments and how talented you are, but dude can’t you be humble even for just a few minutes? I think he also needs to work on how he relates to people. He asks for respect, but he doesn’t always show others respect. Dude totally went off on Sway for no reason. What I will say I like about Kanye though is he isn’t afraid to speak his mind and that I do admire about him.
Unfortunately, his going away party can’t come soon enough. Every website I frequent somehow finds a way to push this jackazz into my daily browsing. His face can even be seen on the Huffington Post every damn day. Who would have ever thought that “Black Royalty” now lays at the feet of a video-sex-tape-hoe affectionately known as “Kimmie Cakes” and a narcissistic clown who sees himself as “Jesus”..?
