Kanye

Now you guys know that I've been trying to scale back my Kanye-related coverage just because obviously he hasn't been taking it very well. But seemingly every time I turn around (just like the song says), this douche has gone and done something else ridonkulous. Yesterday, or actually a few days ago, it was him wasting everybody's time at Live 8, now I hear, via Straight Bangin', that he's recycled one of his old ass "freestyles" that he's been using at every show he ever did for the past couple of years now and even once "performed" on "Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry" for this new "Gold Digger" song of his featuring either Ray Charles or Jamie Foxx - possibly both.

Which causes me to wonder: Was Rhymefest busy that week or something? As dedicated as he is to rap music (Would you rather he NAT do this?!), you'd at least expect him to wait a week so that he might get some new rhymes that he didn't actually write, but no. That undeserved Grammy of his must be really going to his head. Still Too Stupid for College could be a very interesting album.

You know, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but hate him or love him, you gotta respect the fact that he's out there doing what he does best (in my personal opinion): Good Music. Quite frankly, if anyone on here believes he's that wack, then you are probably already got a record deal, sold millions of records and won a lot of Grammys, so you have room to talk. Wait, who are you guys anyway? Point blank, it sounds like a bunch of jealousy and haterism which both neighbor each other on a very thin line and if he's as wack as you all would like us to believe, let's see you do better. Holluh!!!

Just my two cents... I can't say that I feel one way or the other about his musical style, and I think his theories about the U.S. Government/AIDS in Africa/crack connections are just bizarre. But I do like his song "Through the Wire" and one line in particular: "Thank God I ain't too cool for the safe belt". If this song in any way inspires anyone to wear a seatbelt while in a motor vehicle, I say give him all the airtime and the media that he can possibly drum up.

I was lucky because my parents both worked in hospitals, and growing up I heard emergency room stories over dinner. Gruesome, yes, but because of that I always wear a seatbelt. So, when I got in my car after lunch for the 1.3-mile, 4-minute ride back to work, I automatically buckled-up. And when the 83-year-old man with Alzheimers got confused, crossed the center divider of the road, and hit me head-on with his much larger car, I survived. Terribly injured, but alive. And with time and hard work, I recovered and I'm back to 100%. Without the seatbelt I'd be dead.

Not everyone is raised to always wear a seltbelt. Sometimes they learn after someone close to them is killed or injured. And sometimes they learn after hearing about someone else who was killed or injured. I think in this case, it's better to learn from someone else's personal experiences, than from your own.

Thanks for the opportunity to comment.

Personally I was trying to figure out what he did to you all? All the "REAL ISSUES" in the world and your going to focus your attention on hating one Artist? WTF? Sad thing is you found a little over 500 people to sign your corny little petition! This can't all stem from him getting heated cause he didn't win a Grammy could it? Have you ever lost something you knew you should have won? Get over it and stop hating on Kanye! Let me guess you probably went to college thinking you were going to be something special but NOPE your broke stuck paying your laons off. While he's out doing his thing without a college degree. Gets right under your skin I bet! Believe it or not his style is all over rap/R&B now! Probably produced your favorite song! LMAO!!

man this site rules :) i thought i was the only one who hates kanye west...

you know what though? i respect him for what he has done with his life - it's admirable that he has/had goals and strived to achieve them...

what pisses me off the most about this guy is that he thinks he's the greatest man to walk the face of the earth. he didn't win an award? well, boo fucking hoo. life isn't fair bitch, get used to it. im sure he will win a ton of other meaningless awards in the future because he is popular.

im not a big fan of his music style but i would be more open to listening to his stuff if he didnt come across and an arrogant whiney bitch. i saw an interview with him at the VMA's where he was asked about the Suge Knight shooting and he looked like he was "disrespected" so badly that he was about to cry...

dude - it's a fucking question - either answer it, or say "you know what, it was really unfortunate that situations like that had to occur, but we just move on.. blah blah blah" - you don't have to be theatrical about it. i remember seeing other interviews with him where he takes himself so seriously its really quite sad...

you are a musician/artist - you're not curing aids or cancer... get off your high horse, come back to reality and then maybe you won't have this shitty rep...

K.West makes music not noise & I feel that's were Hip Hop has been going anyone can make a track with a hard knocking bass line & talk about rims & candy Paint I think that's wack... Kanye doesn't need a jersey & a gun to sell records he has class.. does it with style

Posted by: Anthony | Aug 30, 2005 1:02:47 PM

Hate Hate Hate. Nice way to get people on your site. The truth is that there are very few lyricist that don't recycle their rhymes. Who cares anyway, all words are old and have been used before. All that matters is how the music makes you feel when you in the club dancing with a lady or cruising down the ave with the top down. Or in your case super gangsta bout to do a drive-by. Some people hate, real man get money.

Posted by: Tem | Aug 30, 2005 10:27:16 PM

Why you y'all be hatin on Kanye! What has he done to you guys that you have to focus all your attention on him instead of you guys trying to make it. If you guys really wanna show him why don't you do what he's done, o wait I forgot your probably not that talented, so stop hatin on Kanye.

Posted by: Savir | Aug 30, 2005 11:37:23 PM

Get a life! You put all this energy into hating one man when he don't give a damn about you. Can you please leave this young black brother alone? So what he is arrogant. He has every right to be because he is good at what he does. Do you have a hate website for Jay-Z too? He calls himself JAY-HOVAH, the GOD of rap. What about 50 cent? You can try to ban him from the Grammys but it would never work because God don't like ugly

Posted by: jlove | Aug 31, 2005 1:16:54 AM

I think you lack the sense of the craft of hip hop. if you actually took a second to listen to kanyes songs, you would notice that he speaks about positivity, ending animosity, with a creative delivery. he's only living a dream that alot of young urban kids try to achieve. if you believe in that voicing the truth and making a mark is true than why do u hate on Kanye? maybe its the obvious.. u hate him cuz u aint him..
one love

DAMN I hate corny-ass Kanye West who thinks that he's so damn strong and fly!How the hell could you call yourself a real man after doin the many bitch stunts he has done such as the notorious grammy bitch-out.He's the worst kind prick and its so annoying that nobody in rap is really pullin up his skirt about it,just because he made a jesus song.Oh by the way last time I checked jesus said we should give up all our riches and jewels and become selfless if we want to worship him,so all that muthafuckin platinum and jewels he stay singin about is pure hypocrisy.He truly thinks he's wise and deep but he's not,he's a scroyum sac with about the same intelligence as one.People really should pay attention at how disgustingly arrogant,small-minded and bitchy he is when theyr're tryin to big him up just because he talks about jesus.He's insincere and uses faith as a crutch to behave like a dickhead.

I THINK YOU ARE A STUPID AND IGNORANT MAN TO MAKE A STATEMENT LIKE YOU DID ABOUT GEORGE W. BUSH. IF IT WAS NOT FOR GEORGE W. BUSH YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE RECORDS AND PUT OUT YOUR "WORD" FOR THE WORLD TO HEAR- HE MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO BE ABLE TO DO JUST THAT. OUR TROOPS, BLACK AND WHITE, ALL FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM EVERYDAY- THE FREEDOM FOR YOU TO MAKE AND PRODUCE GHETTO RECORDS AND MAKE SUCH IGNORANT STATEMENTS LIKE YOU DID!!!

Posted by: JOHNNA JACOBS | Sep 3, 2005 11:45:42 AM

Hahaha, there are some low lives on here. I cant believe yall would waste time to make a whole website about hating a rapper. Damn, shows how much pussy yall get. Kan prolly get more pussy than u ever though of. Damn is he really that caught up? LOL. But yea, yall some fuckin losers. As far as im concerned u can take this website and use it as toilet paper. But im sure this site was made by a couple of LAMES who still live with their moms at the age of 27. FUCK YALL, THE ROCS IN DA BUILDIN!

The waste is reading comments from ignorant people like Trend with shit for brains.

Posted by: Dave | Sep 4, 2005 9:53:30 AM

hi there y'all.

i'm just a hater-hater.

i gotta say, you really make your point about how weak a performer kanye is, when you use the word gay and fag.

yeah, that makes _him_ look like a real douche-bag, alright.

guess you told him, and his, uh, critical acclaim and nationwide success and sudden elevation to rolemodel and activist. boy howdy.

foo'.

Kanye West is, without a doubt, the most over-rated producer and MC ever. I think of him very much like Puff Daddy, or whatever the fuck he calls himself now. The fact is, Kanye West has about 30 real songs (strictly from his two albums, and excluding the skits), and if you look at the credits, most of these songs were actually written by other individuals. These people include Chaka Khan, Ray Charles, and John Barry. Now, if you look at the likes of people like DJ Premier, Pete Rock, and the RZA, you will find that they produce new stuff without completely relying on samples for their respected groups. As I did more research, I discovered that roughly half his songs are taken from previous individuals/ groups. How can he be a great producers when not only does he not produce his own stuff, but when he takes samples, he pretty much leaves them the same or simply speeds up the singers voice (ex. would be Chaka Khan's voice in THROUGH THE FIRE, not through the wire). An example of good production when taking samples was the Beastie Boys' Paul Boutique. So, to claim Kanye as a "great producer" is a comment made by those who are not familiar with old school jazz, funk, and R&B. Also, I don't know how anyone can really say he is a great MC. I mean, they are relatively weak, not saying he is horrible, but he is no Nas, GZA, Common, or Talib Kweli. At best, he is simply average. What angers me is that people over compliment him, and now he is (and even the most ardent lovers cant defend this)completely full of himself. He thinks that he is "the greatest MC and producer ever". Thats just ignorant, plain and simple. One thing must be said, he is not horrible. Other than his attitude, I really don't care for him. What irritates me are all the people who claim him to be the best producer and MC. These individuals are the morons and thus the problem, not him. He is better than numerous mainstream individuals (insert morons such as Mike Jones, Jay-Z, Cam'ron, 50 Cent, etc.) But if you really know hip-hop, you would know he is worlds away from the likes of Gang Starr, Jurassic 5, KRS-One, The Roots, or K-Os.

Please stop all of the hating, its really uneccesary. So he's arrogant, who cares, at the end of the day he makes great music, and there are definately worst people in the rap game to hate on, like those who rap about smackin bitches and beating hoes.

Posted by: Paige | Sep 6, 2005 10:51:14 AM

You guys really need to grow up. Kanye is a great producer, even though he does sample from other music (good musicians borrow, great musicians steal), and he is an average rapper with simple, yet positive rhymes that kill most of the modern rappers' "Nines and Dimes" mentality. Just sit and listen to most of his songs and tell me the lyrics do not dwarf lyrics a la "G-Unit or Mike Jones" He is changing rap no matter how much you petition or hate on him. Yes he's arrogant and feels like he's the greatest, but why can't he be. His first CD I feel is not as lyrically great as Talib Kweli or as flowing and complicated like Nas, but the producing works with his style that is positive, humorous and simplistically intelligent that makes it a must have. Believe me, I have everything from Twista to Tu-Pac to Usher, and Kanye West is one of the greatest growing rappers to come out that is also breaking free of the mold of Gangsta/Club rapping. Who cares about Tecs and Gauges or drugs and hoes, Kanye is doing great things by changing up the game for the better. What makes a great rapper is not the ability to spit lines easily or how well they can rap, its the thought put into the lyrics and the intelligence of the rapper. He's definitely no Tu-pac or Talib but he's good enough to be numbered amongst them. He might just happen to be the next great, no matter how much you try to stop him.

No, Kanye is not a horrible rapper, nor a horrible producer. And, i think i may have said this before, he may be one of the best mainstream hip hop artist in our current generation. And i dont really dislike the man (his arrogance is annoyance, but can be ignored), but what i hate is the fact that numerous people state that he is the best rapper and producer of all time. The point is, there are numerous other rappers and produces which are leagues above him. They offer better lyrics, and more creative bets. Because they do this, they show the intellegence and thought of a true great artist. Yes, his lyrics are positive, which i even enjoy, but there are other people with better rhyming skills that put out positive lyrics too. And there are better producers who put in more time and thought to make a great beat. When about 50% of your beats are taken from other albums, that shows a lack of not only effort and thought, but also love for music. If Kanye is able to change the face of hip hop from music which concentrates on women, cars, and jewelry, than i will be forever thankful for that. And i will not hesitate to call him a key figure in the face of music. But with his lack of rhymes, and stolen beats, he will never be a great mc or artist.

Ok, fair enough. Now that makes sense, more sense than this whole ban Kanye from the Grammys thing. However, I have an off topic question for you, what are your favorite MCs. I'm trying to get a better diversity of albums and artists and I would like to know of some really good ones. Also, never say never.

Posted by: A fan of rap | Sep 8, 2005 6:49:59 PM

WOW...i got to this sites by searching for Kanye on Google.....what the hell is this? You must have so little of a life...friends...and self confidence to dedicate a whole website to hating Kanye West. I would maybe understand if it were a websites against George Bush..or something of that matter...but Kanye West..one of the greatest rappers..and probably the only REAL and MEANINGFUL rap artist. And you say Kanye doesn't deserve a grammy? Ok, then, you know you're right..someone like DMX or 50 because you know their few billion songs about how he's so gangster, all his hoes, his cash and all that stuff that really means something. YEAH. RIGHT. KANYE IS THE ONLY REAL ARTISTIC RAPPER. AND JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO LIFE AND NEED TO DEDICATE ALL YOUR TIME TO HATING SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER DONE ONE THING WRONG....DOESN'T MEAN THAT PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY.

who fuckin writes this anti kanye site? guys obviously got no fuckin life.....kanye is one of the best music makers in the world right now...fuck off...
