Kanye West Needs Another Awakening

Kanye once said his greatest pain is to never be able to see himself perform live.  Perhaps the gay fish needs to take a long look at the pain of being seen with his douchebag friends.

Isn’t it Ironic Kanye?

This is probably the first thing I’m excited about for the new year.

Kanye West “Samples” Ralph Bakshi

Kanye West is not an artist. Whatever style he presents, whatever “new sound” he introduces, they’re simply not original. Even worse, it’s not personal. Just as mainstream’s streetwear king/ self-dubbed music genius previously sampled the hell out of a bunch of songs for Graduation– a sample-heavy album featuring 10 of 13 songs not being completely his own work, Yeezy’s newest video samples one of the works of my favorite filmmakers/ artists, Ralph Bakshi. See for yourself, the similarities between Kanye’s video for “Heartless,” and scenes from American Pop.

In the words of Mark Vallen on street artist/ Obey Plagiarist, Shepard Fairey, “it displays none of the line, modeling and other idiosyncrasies that reveal an artist’s unique personal style.”
