When it all falls down

It’s weird to think that as recently as a few years ago Kanye West was the rapper who felt the black woman’s pain. In addition to his penchant for teh ghey-looking shirts and tiny jackets, he had songs that spoke sympatheically to the black female condition.

In “All Falls Down,” he brilliantly (by Kanye West standards) broke down how black women are driven by their own insecurity to buy expensive shit they can’t afford and to give their bastard children silly names no one will ever take seriously and so on and so forth.

And here I thought it was because they were a buncha ignorant sluts.

I don’t know if he’s trying to purposely shed that image or what, but in the past few years he’s had his share of incidents in which he’s run afoul of the sister-girl community.

The first clue that he might be full of shit should’ve been when he accidentally left his box of pr0n, which he travels with, on the set of a photo shoot for you guys’ favorite magazine Rolling Stone and it turned out to be all black man on white woman interracial sex.

Admittedly, I don’t keep any black girl pr0n in my own special suitcase, but then, I’ve been pretty upfront about my own seemingly irrational prejudices. If I shot a rap video, the whole thing would be like the Polow Da Don portion of the “Throw Some Ds” video.

Most of Kanye West’s videos, meanwhile? Not so much. In the video for “Touch the Sky,” he sort of goofed on the idea that black women would throw a bitch fit if the models in his videos were more of a reflection of his actual tastes in women.

The real clincher for me though was when he gave an interview to Essence magazine in which he referred to mixed black women (like manna from heaven, except when they’re fat) as mutts and claimed that if it wasn’t for race mixing, there’d be no video girls.

Damn.

A backlash would almost certainly be in order except for the fact that you know how it is in hip-hop. Black women love to play right into the so-called misogyny as if it’s no big deal and then try to play the feminist role as soon as it’s politically or financially expedient.

To his credit though, Kanye West seems to be taking this all in stride. Indeed it seems as if this whole “color struck, sex obsessed asshole” schtick, which he totally stole from me (the two of us have a long history together – nullus), could be a fertile new artistic conceit for the rapper.

His video ho anthem “Wouldn’t Get Far” with The Game was one of my favorite songs all last year, but I think he took it to a whole other level still in this new freestyle over, what else, the beat to Rich Boy’s “Throw Some Ds,” in which he discusses buying his hoes breast implants.

Who else is all of a sudden kinda excited about Graduation?

  • http://XXL Big Gee

    Point well take BOL. These chicks definitley play the blame game as soon as someone really exposes them for their true colors. B*tches will b*tches when they refer to themselves like that with their friends but as soon as a nicca says it, Its all of sudden a problem. THROW SOME D”S ON THEM HOES…

  • Misha

    I have been reading you for quite some time and have thus far refrained from commenting. However I couldn’t hold it in anymore. Your column reads like the rantings of a man that hasn’t even benn close enough to pussy to even smell it since he came out of one. Take a class or something or like Isaiah Washington, go into rehab for woman hating.

  • Atl’s own

    wat, this is not entertainin’ at all!

  • Incilin

    is this all true? It sounds right and makes prefect sense, but how come I didn’t ever hear about these indicidents (like the Rolling Stone porn thing) before?? I think you should repost this and have the links because it almost sounds like your making it up. But yeah, Kayne has some definite race issues.

  • Tyler

    Yea’ Bol, another great angle on a new situation. I have been tryin’ 2 hate K 2 tha’ but dude keeps coming wit’ it and that’s not sayin’ dat all his shit is hot or he is the best producer ever like he says he is cause he is still over rated but he does spit heat.
    I love that D’s on it remix he flipp’d which ‘dat song is bangin’ no matter what D’s they talking bout. But yea’ who in they right might don’t like a “Grey Bitch” from time 2 time. I mean my motta is “it’s all Pink Inside” but yes Black Women are the Queens and the White Women are some really nice play things. I am all about the swirl, ya’ dig it makes for a more interesting world. Peep the musical race mixing going on at:

  • Avenger

    Kanye is a good producer and a average mc at best(some times he is down right bad. But this fool is a insecure bastard of a human being he does so much arrogant stupid shit like he can get away with anything and he might as well come out the closet already.
    Let’s see

    1. fashion crazed
    2. throw bitch fit temper tantrums
    3. can’t relate to women as a man because he is too familiar with their emotions he needs some testosterone.
    4. color struck I don’t think so soon he will simply be experimenting with everything if not already like many rich white men in corporate america.
    Kanye is has a Diva complex

  • Dollar Wells

    Kanyeeeeeezy must be talkin’ ’bout throwin’ some double Ds in that B.

    Very meta.

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

    Kanyeezy just speak the truth and how he feels about things…sorry he isnt politicaly correct…i feel what dude be doing and i respect him as a person, artist, and producer…Graduation should be pretty hot…he said he is taking his time so that his presence and music would be appreciated when he does step in the spot light…cant say the same for these artist trying to see how many albums they can put out in a year…

  • honkey t

    Bol, you oughtta check your self before you wreck these boys in here…

    I know you mad, Bolly, cos you ain’t got touch since aiesha and real women like Misha are stylin’ all over ya, but there’s no need to get these young ones on yr ignorant tip. Real women have self-respect and won’t respect some internet gangstas talkin’ bitches and hos.

    A real man knows how to treat a woman and ain’t afraid to admit it. Why do you think your favorite rapper’s covered in bling?? Its cos he don’t have the confidence and self-respect to get the girls without it. Hating women is just cos y’all don’t have the balls to realize you hate yrselves.

    kanye west is ignorant. i am a young black almost grown woman. and i got niggas on my jock always. and i know alot of dark skinned beautiful woman and girls. good post bol.

  • http://www.myspace.com/angelsometimes Cthulhu

    I thought Polow was pretty gully doing that shit in the video, fucking awesome if you ask me. His verse is awesome too for some reason. Is he known for liking white chicks or something? Because damn his statement was pretty clear. Those chicks were white white white too, not chinky eyed maybe-part latin/asian/indian like me but like, ugly sorority girl white. I think that’s the only problem with black guys using white video chicks: they get cheap ass ugly looking white chicks who aren’t half as pretty as the black girls in the video alongside them. That chick on the hood of the car with the bubble gum? Hot, extremely hot. The white chicks with Polow? Hardly cute. It could lead one to assume that either only mediocre looking white chicks want black guys [not true trust me] or that the black guys can only afford cute rate white chick video girls. I think those girls were straight out of the nearest Birmingham community college though.

    Don’t try to drag another nigga down with you just cause YOU clearly have issues with black women.

    You really hate black chicks don’t you

  • BlackBoy

    WOW the ONE black chick (I’m assuming) to post a comment here ACTUALLY inadvertently defends Kanye by attacking Bol and nothing about how Kanye writes a freestyle about treating women like cars with upgradable features?

    Damn, sistas are in trouble. black girls lost. (so far, Bol=1, black chicks=0)

  • BlackBoy

    …plus it’s pretty obvious Bol’s had his heart broken by a black girl who left him hanging for a tall ball player-looking nigga in school.

    awwww…. don’t feel bad, Bol. You probably have a chance with her now that that other guy has probably left her with his two kids…. don’t give up.

  • jrs-one

    uhhh fuck Kanye.I doubt he’ll sell as much as his first 2 on this next one, cuz of all his arrogant shit he pulled off since the last, like dressing up like Jesus and bumrushing some English dude cuz he didnt win best video of the year

  • jon jon–23

    I have always thought there should be more dark skinned women showcased for their beauty, and Kanye does have a point. Name 1 rap video with a majority of dark skinned chicks in it. As far as him calling “some” women whores; that’s just like black kids acting, dressing, and being ignorant, calling THEMSELVES niggers/niggas and then getting mad when other races agree.

  • dat coonz oimp bitccccccccccccch

    to give their bastard children silly names no one will ever take seriously and so on and so forth.

    I just wanna say this blog is one of the best hip hop blogs around. so keep that shit up and fuck the haters Bol.

    now as for this whole Kanye West thing….I think you’re making too big a deal off what bitches he’s dipping into… he’s famous now! let him have a piece of everything. I know that if I suddenly became famous and really really rich I’d be fucking little 10 year girls and midgets and cats and all sorts of freaky shit… shit, I’m rich, who cares!! I can get away with it!!
    so I think that’s pretty cool, and keep up the good work Kanye

  • Golden-Honey

    I have lots of love for Kanye but damn I’m considered a mixed breed which in his case would be a (mutt). But what the hell I feel like I’m the best of both worlds. Shit being Black & Puerto Rican is the best to me, because I think I wouldn’t look this good if I was just black. Men can’t stop telling how pretty I am!!

    The Bush family is linked to 1930-40′s Hitler Nazi Germany. Arnold Schwarzenegger is an open “nigger hating”, nazi sympathizer and admirer. The United States constitution is being secretly suspended, masterplans for marshal law are being implimented, the media is under great censorship and dictatorship, the federal reserves are privately own by a small consortium of german and english families, and the jews still controlling and pimping entertainers, actors, musicians, American politics, and the world. But it’s more important to be intertained and disgusted by the continuation of the ‘nigger-bitch-cracker-interacial-who’s homosexual’ divide and conquer syndrome. It seems that hate take presidence in the conscience and conscious of most Americans. In spikes joint, ‘do the right thing’, what was the most important monologue delivered in the movie by the actor Samuel L. Jackson? If you do not know I rest my case, sadly.
    (by the way Prince’s video ‘working up a black sweat’ was great just for that.)
