I don't see your point. I like Pharell, and have since his early shit. Kanye is no Pharell.Kanye is a genius, OP probably also thinks Pharell is a shitty pop star and didn't produce most of the best rap of the 2000s (that wasn't Kanye)
Gold digger's alright sure, but like ALL of Kanye's decent songs, it's a rehash of a better one.He's a good producer and MC, just overrated (or unjustly hated on) by most people. I like his work, but don't love it...except Gold Digger. That's a gem.
I don't get it either. But then again I don't listen to popular music anymore. Admittedly the only Kanye song I know is a comedy red neck version of such a fucking ho which is just funny.I guess Kanye has been one of the few musicians that actually supports Drumph... But in the past, he's been an obvious douche... And in my opinion, the vast majority of the "good" songs he's put out have been shitty de-makes of otherwise good songs. He really doesn't seem to have that much talent to me in the first place. If you disagree, please change my mind with a link to an actually good song he's done. Or don't, I don't really care.
Full disclosure: I haven't listened to a whole lot of Kanye's stuff, and the only thing I like that I've heard is the first track off of the album Yeezus. I just ran through a number of other tracks and I honestly can't find one that I like.Kanye happens to be a very talented producer and rapper, and as such has channeled his energy into making highly respected and acclaimed hip hop music. The way he chooses to portray himself to the public is his own business, and he's not obligated in the slightest to portray his mental issues in any particular way. Not only that, but the way he talks about mental illness could very well be helping him progress, and could help people see their issues in a different light. There is no one standardized treatment for mental illness; everyone who is affected has a slightly different way of coping. The fact that Kanye is able to use it as a part of his public persona is irrelevant.
Also, can you blame him for being cynical? He is possibly the most scrutinized and mocked musician in the world (in some cases with good reason, to be fair). It must be difficult to deal with constant pressure and ridicule from all angles, and this could also be a way of dealing with that.
He also says bipolar is a superpowrr. I can't believe Kanye West said a troll line. BTW did you guys hear Kanye said Bush hates blacks, my fellow up to date broskis?Kanye: Wearing the MAGA cap makes me feel like I have SUPERPOWERS! That was a paraphrase of a real line that Darkscythe featured in that video.
