Kanye - proving yet again why he is an a-hole
Posted by: JoeM

"Rapper Kanye West attacked by Parkinson's UK charity over 'inexcusably stupid' shaking lyric on track from new album Yeezus,

Kanye West has been accused of ignorance and stupidity after the rapper mocked Parkinson’s disease sufferers on his new album.

The track "On Sight", from the album Yeezus, includes the lyric: “Soon as I pull up and park the Benz / We get this b***h shaking like Parkinson’s.”..."

[www.independent.co.uk]

Is that the only 3 syllable rhyme for "park the Benz" that this creten could come up with?

Kanye is talented, but Kanye is an a$$, and it has nothing to do with his color.

There are lots of talented people, of all colors, who are also a$$ es.

Right...
For example, I think $tevie is an a$$, and I neither know nor care the color of her skin.

I want to contribute to Kanye West's fame, so I will continue to spread the word about Brother Kanye by posting to and creating new threads so the light that is Kanye will never go out due to indifference or ignorance.

The serious question to ask here is why, in an album filled with disturbing and rude and misogynistic imagery, we are supposed to fixate on the Parkinsons line and condemn West for using it?

Could it be that the public relations people at Parkinsons UK have found an opportunity to promote their cause by publicizing an album that most of us are not going to listen to, let alone buy, which means they are in fact calling attention to it, to use it for their own purposes, use Kenye West for their own purposes.

West isn't my favorite person by any means, but manipulating the media with outrage over one line by a person whose career has been a series of offensive lines seems really opportunistic to me. This is what West does. Some of you who are taking offense at this are the first ones to condemn "PC" "thought police" when it suits you.

I just think what passes for "talent" these days is hilarious.

And what I call talent - this guy doesn't own. Sorry, don't get upset - just my personal opinion.

I'm not upset. If you want to sound like my father talking about the Rolling Stones, that's fine.

And (edit) I think your dad and I would get along just fine. And I mostly agree with him about the Stones, outside of a few songs. What does he think about Kid Rock and Bieber? ;)

Vanilla Ice sucks, too.

At least he recognized that rap was not for him, and picked up a hammer and went to work.

Marky Mark also recognized that rap was not his thang, and went right to movie making.

<<Marky Mark also recognized that rap was not his thang, and went right to movie making.>>

He maimed a guy first, though, right?

[en.wikipedia.org]

At 16, Wahlberg approached a middle-aged Vietnamese man on the street and, using a large wooden stick, knocked him unconscious (while calling him "Vietnam @#$%& @#$%&"). He also attacked another Vietnamese man, leaving him permanently blind in one eye.

Unfortunately my father is no longer around to be subjected to pop music. I'm sure he'd be quite unimpressed with most if not all of what's out there today.

I liked Marky Marks' hit song. That is a great exercise song. Listen to it again, he kills it.

I agree that Kanye is that thing that people are mentioning that eliminates waste materials. I also believe that people have a right to like what they like. I just want people to "own" what they like or don't like. If I sat here and called Pink Floyd talentless hacks I'd be ridiculed (of course for good reason). But that would be "my" opinion. I'm not a big Kanye West fan, but he is talented even if it's not represented in a lot of his songs.

But I bet I'd be impressed with what he was impressed with.

Thank you, JoeM. It's been almost 25 years! He was way too young when he left us.

If you like jazz and classical, then yeah. And the occasional foray into the worst examples of corny country/western, but we try to forget about that. eye rolling smiley
