Kanye West is a Moron
Is this really the best we have to offer?
Kanye West is a moron. There isn’t any room for debate on the subject; he is a complete ass, and has been for some time. I have heard, in recent days, excuses ranging from a troubled childhood to addiction issues. To whit I reply…..bullsh*t. He is an idiot. This is what happens when you take a mid grade performer with only marginal talent and turn him into a pop icon. You put him up on a pedestal, surround him with adoring fellow morons, throw a spotlight on him. How exactly are we surprised by this? This is what our mainstream music offers up, and like lemmings, we drink it in.
Our standards have gone directly into the toilet. Rap music used to scare us, and justifiably so. Public Enemy’s Fear of a Black Planet terrified middle class white parents.
It was brutal; it was scary, and most of all, it was real. This was the life these men lived. There was an integrity here. These were angry kids trying to open the eyes of a generation. You have to wonder what Chuck D would say about West’s antics. The’New king of Pop’ he calls himself. Has the genre truly fallen so far? Of course.
Rap music, as a whole, is about how much bling you wear, and how well you are able to rap about how great you are. How hood you are. What was once a music swimming in revolution has now become commercial dribble, and the likes of Kanye West are the excrement it leaves behind.
In an ideal world, this idiot would lose his record deal and his celebrity status. Lord knows he doesn’t deserve it. But he won’t. If anything, this will give a boost to the new ‘king of pop’ and his record sales. The only fool greater than this one is the one who buys his next album.
This is our kids role model?
