Kanye West - "My album will enter the history books."

Ever-so-modest Kanye West has declaredMY ALBUM WILL ENTER THE HISTORY BOOKS. I wonder if he'll still feel that way one day when he goes into a store and sees it in the Bargain Bin.

ohmigod! just because he denounced king, er, president bush and stated the way many blacks feel, do you guys have to hate on him? he's a smart, savvy guy who happens to be popular. your dislike of him doesn't negate his right to be "arrogant" (i wonder, in a white star, would that arrogance be called well-placed confidence?).
anyway, i thought you guys over here would be relieved that people are listening to a young black man who isn't all thugged out...

oh, and neocon, i thought that "neocons" DIDN'T like people that fed starving thousands... encourages dependency and discourages personal responsibility, doesn't it?

Have you listened to the original version of Gold Digger on the cd? I wouldn't exactly call him a very respectful icon to be proud of. If a white star sang a song like that, he certainly wouldn't be called a smart, savvy guy. Pretty disgraceful if you ask me... Of course, you didn't so...

elle- its just like a lib to make race the key issue. i dont care if a star is white or black. his lies and arrogance are annoying, just like the other white, black, male, and female stars in hollywood who automatically blame the president for everything. if they actually truly cared about saving people, they would stop blaming the bush administration for every unfortuante occurrance and donate their own time and money to help the downtrodden, not just an occassional fundraiser or million dollar check.

also, what conservative christian, protestant or catholic doesnt give money to their church to hel feed thousands all around the world. i am conservative and just last week i participated in a food and toy drive to help feed those less fortunate. conservatives do not have a problem with helping feed the starving, its when hypocrites come out and jump all over the government for not doing enough.

"its just like a lib to make race the key issue."

yep. just like a black liberal from rural louisiana... don't know where i got the idea that people saw race in this color-blind society; couldn't possibly have been from my liberating personal experiences in the backwoods South. as far as blaming the bush administration, i don't bother with that personally... i've already labeled that a lost cause.

"Have you listened to the original version of Gold Digger on the cd?"

yep. particularly listened to the lines where he noted how some brothers who make their way up with sisters' help eventually... well, you know, that race thing again. and i've also listened to what he has to say about the ghastly materialism and vicious homophobia in hip hop culture. so he's not always PC (isn't that a good thing :-). doesn't mean he's not smart and popular.

I never said he wasn't smart and popular. Smart is not something I would measure and it's obvious he is popular. I'm just not sure if he will enter the history books on the same pages with the likes of BB King, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, etc. And can anyone really ever live up to Marvin Gaye? no, no, no...

But then again, I'm not young and hip anymore. My kids remind me of that every single day. So I might be betting on the wrong odds.
