I mean, seriously…
I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER. I USE TO USE IT TO BUILD UP MY ESTEEM WHEN NOBODY BELIEVED IN ME. NOW THAT PEOPLE DO BELIEVE AND SUPPORT MY MUSIC AND PRODUCTS THE BEST RESPONSE IS THANK YOU INSTEAD OF “I TOLD YOU SO!!!” IT’S COOL TO TALK SHIT WHEN YOU’RE RAPPING BUT NOT IN REAL LIFE. WHEN YOU MEET LITTLE WAYNE IN PERSON HE’S THE NICEST GUY FOR EXAMPLE. I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM. I NEED TO JUST GET PAST MYSELF. DROP THE BRAVADO AND JUST MAKE DOPE PRODUCT. EVERYTHING IS NOT THAT SERIOUS. AS LONG AS PEOPLE THINK I ACT LIKE A BITCH THIS TYPE OF SHIT WILL HAPPEN TO ME. I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I’M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I’M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE.
So naturally, the gameplan is to act like a huge douche on a national stage and flash your ego in the process. As was evidenced when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech to basically say she sucked. Which she probably does, but at least her last album wasn’t a shat-out auto-tuned piece of shit. Seriously, I don’t really give a damn about Taylor Swift, just someone probably covered by a crappy emo cover band on a Tuesday night at The Bluebird. But Kanye, after 808s and Heartbreak, you can’t talk shit about other people in the music industry. ‘Cuz that album was straight garbage.
Yeezy’s just getting annoying. If he was just an ass all the time, it wouldn’t matter. But he’s a goddamn dramatic ho. About everything. He constantly says stupid shit. And I don’t exactly expect rappers to enlighten me, but Kanye really doesn’t have much to offer when he starts talking, which is far too often.
If he’s gonna act like he’s checking his ego, he needs to act on it. You’re either an IDGAF artist or a conscious artist. Can’t have it both ways. When you try, you just look like an enormous tool.
