I’ve never understood the media’s default acceptance off Kanye West: genius. The evidence says otherwise.
1.) He married a Kardashian.
2.) He says things like this (while defending his 45-minute toast to himself):
And what I talked about in it was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the ’60s, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name. I said that in the toast.
Ye shall overcome.
You know, God is infectious—God flowing through us and us being little-baby creators and shit. But His energy and His love and what He wants us to have as people and the way He wants us to love each other, that is infectious. Like they said in Step Brothers: Never lose your dinosaur. This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur. Meaning that even as I grew in cultural awareness and respect and was put higher in the class system in some way for being this musician, I never lost my dinosaur.
3.) Intelligent people, truly intelligent people, don’t have to advertise their smarts.
Because I don’t like walking around with people thinking I’m doing uncool shit, because there’s nothing I’m doing that’s uncool. It’s all innovative. You just might not understand it yet. But it’s cool.
No it’s not.
