Sign the Ban Kanye West from the Grammys Petition Today

"Who gives a fuck about a goddamn Grammy anyway?"

Thats an excerpt from the immortal Public Enemy song "Terminator X to the Edge of Panic." Why do I quote that? If we don't give a fuck about a Grammy, then why didn't we want Kanye West getting one? The reason we dont give a fuck about a Grammy is precisely because Kanye West won one. The Grammy is meaningless when undeserving people win. If the Grammy was given to people who actually deserved it, then I would care who won it. The Grammy would mean something. But since Kanye won, the Grammy loses its meaning. It's just another meaningless award given to undeserving people. The people who gave K. West a Grammy...who gives a fuck about what they like, right?

I write this post in response to "non-hatemail" sent to us.

You should update the site to keep kanye away from the grammys. You
need to tell everyone how many grammys he won, and big of a dickbag you are.

So I say: I don't know how many Grammys he won, nor do I care. Who gives a fuck about a goddamn Grammy?

It also should be noted how teh ghey the "non-hatemailer" was:

-Love,

Dan

Wow, never before have I seen such a great display of someone incredibly jealous and outraged at another man's success. I hope you spend lots more of your life condemning Kanye West while he lavishes in the luxury that his hard work and success have afforded him.

Hahaha, the losers who run this site are hilarious. They try so hard to point out another black man's flaws, when I'm secretly they are dying to emulate his ever changing style and success. This entire website is basically a tribute to Kanye....and makes fun of every dick-riding hater who confuses taking advantage of opportunities with being arrogant and a biter. On another note, can they start another website for next years grammys so Kanye can win a few more off his new CD? Cause it seems this one worked pretty well. Its like that and I'm out.
You lame ass internet kids playin on your computers all day making websites bashing people more successful than you.....keep drinkin up on the haterade...it might clear up your horrendous acne.

Wooo sounds like we got a bunch of bitches hatin on one of Chicagos finest! Next thing you know you little haters are gunna say Common is fake. The only fake bitches i see on the web site or the one who made it. Kanye could drop all u little haters with a simple 16 bars. But then again i wouldnt expect you dick monkeys to know what that is. So how about you take ur punk asses sum place else and... well no better yet... stay here and talk sum more shyt... be happy to know that u make all of us laugh.

Wow... wat a bunch of bitches...

My question is, why are people so upset at this site? People who get so worked up defending other men scare me a little bit. It reminds me of people who bash Kobe Bryant when they were never laker fans, and they hated him to begin with. Shut the fuck up already! I feel that Kanye is alright, but of what you brothesr say is true about him biting and using ghostwriters, it definitely puts him in a different light in my eyes. Cool site, and apparently it seems that I am the only cat that can take a joke. Keep doing your thing.

If I'm not mistaken, jay-z bit off of biggie his whole carrer. everyone samples old songs.. that's just the nature of beatmaking. look on the credits to any rap album.. you'll see recognition being given on almost every track for sampling. what makes kanye so different? he perfected it? (he did, by the way). ya'll are just diickriders.. seriously tho, ya'll are on kanye's balls like sweat. just sit back and enjoy good music. ya boy is the most entertaining motherfucker out right now, one of the most talented, and he's doing his own shit. when a kanye song comes on you know it's fire.

there is a HUGE difference between having some other dude write your shit and sampling an old song. look back at the legends...look at how many of them dissed rappers who didnt write their own shit vs. how many of them dissed producers who sampled own songs.

and perfecting the art of having some other guy write your lyrics is nothin to be proud of.

Kanye's 'College Dropout' was a masterpiece. the album of 2004, and quite possibly a classic. if not then at the very least a play-through. you guys take one song in question, jesus walks, and down his whole career for it. He had 20 other tracks that earned his album critical acclaim. he's produced songs for everyone, and has took sampling to the next level. every producer has his own style, and kanye's just happens to be borrowing from other people to create something of his own. hate all you want but he's not going nowhere for a minute so like it or turn it off.

Posted by: reese | Apr 30, 2005 11:49:19 PM

reese, if you think that "im too dumb for college" is a masterpiece and a classic, well then i might as well stop debating. its like trying to convince a chingy fan that their hero is gay...as easy as it should be, its almost impossible.

no homo on all this mess, btw. nhjic.

I'm glad Kanyegate is up and running.

All i can contribute to this discussion is:

"Late Registration"-July 12, 2005

Another great Kanye West album for y'all to hate on some more. Sad thing is, no matter how much you hate on it, it will still be one of the best selling selling records of the year, even though it comes out in July. No matter what you say, you can't argue with how the general public feel about the man.

So, in your mind, Ray Charles' "Album of the Year" didn't mean a thing. Watch what you're saying you ignorant clown.

> So, in your mind, Ray Charles' "Album of the Year" didn't mean a thing. Watch what you're saying you ignorant clown.

unfortunately, it really doesnt.

if someone like kanye west can win an award by just re-recording a rap song, then the value of that award decreases.

the easier something is to get, the less value it has. simple economics, really.

the simple fact is that a grammy award doesnt change anything about ray charles. what if he hadnt won? would that diminsh him? i dont think so.

the general public = idiots

these are the people who elected george w. bush and made paris hilton famous

>if someone like kanye west can win an award by just re-recording a rap song, then the value of that award decreases.

to prove this point, why don't YOU re-record a song and see if YOU win a grammy. The point is, I think that, even if it isn't his song, a little more went into it than just re-recording. It wasn't like he just re-recorded the song and then, POOF, here comes a grammy right out of his ass. That's not how it works, b/c if it was then everybody would be winning a fuckin' grammy.

Posted by: dbaca | May 14, 2005 8:07:07 PM

^youre right in that not everyone who re-records a rap song wins a grammy.

however, not every person that lipsynchs wins a grammy, and milli vanilli won one

You all are talking so much shit about rappers that don't write their own shit. well you must hate Dr. Dre and X-Zibit because Jay-Z wrote lyrics for both of their albums.

Posted by: Brian | May 26, 2005 10:11:46 PM

jay didnt write for xzibit. at least i dont think.

dr. dre did get shit written for him. the difference lies in 2 things:

1) dre produced his own shit, and
2) dre never claimed to be the best ever

i mean, seriously, any "greatest rapper of all time" discussion throws dre out from the start cause he didnt write his own shit.

Posted by: djxplicit.blogspot.com | May 27, 2005 6:10:01 PM

well i'd say until u win a grammy u can't judge any1 else who does so, particularly not sum1 who deserves 1 as much as kanye west did! can't w8 4 late registration or next years grammys when we see kanye walk away with another!

Posted by: bobs | May 29, 2005 3:37:00 PM

Who gives a fuck about yall!! not me ya'll just mad cuz that nigga is makin his money, he gets hoes, and hes much better then ya'll. The only thing you can do is to bash him. Fuck you, You don't know shit about that man. He was the best one at the Grammy awards, and the BET awards, and every award show hes been to. Don't hate on him. He is still gonna be makin his money rather you like him or not. You can't run him down your words ain't on his level. Thats small talk to him. He can careless about your stupid ass words. Listen to his songs most of them talk about bitches like you... FUCK YOU!!! I LOVE KANYE WEST

Posted by: Ayesha | Aug 9, 2005 1:27:42 PM

You guys are so, so sad. Don't hate on Kanye just because he's got more insight than most of these sad ass rappers and all you stupid-ass wannabe thug kids posting on this site. He deserved the Grammy. More than damn near anyone I've ever seen win or not win one. So quit posting and drink your daily dose of Haterade.
