Kanye West: Be-All, End-All You Can Be… All

Kanye Please is back!

“There’s nothing more to be said about music. I’m the fucking end-all, be-all of music. I know what I’m doing. I did 808s in three weeks. I got it. It’s on cruise control. . . . Man, we talked about music for God knows how long! Now let’s talk about how my f*cking sweater didn’t come back right from Korea. That’s what’s interesting me.”Kanye West, Details Magazine

I don’t know what’s more entertaining, reading shit like this or watching A-Rod deliver the most insincere apologies in the history of forced apologies.

Hall-of-famer Kanye West has closed the book on music. Music is done. There are no records left to break and no one will reach the heights Yeezy’s ascended to. Since Mr. West is the end-all, be-all of music as a whole—not just the hippety-hop–I guess niggas need to hold one of them LV 54.11s up to their ears for auditory entertainment going forward. I wonder what the fuck the Leather Louis told Mr. King, jr.

It probably told Kanye, “Hurry the fuck up with that record, nigga. I need you to design me some laces and find me a non-matching blazer!”

Three weeks on an album isn’t all-that impressive anyway. In the Motown-era some of that shit was done in a day without any artists having the luxury of being able to sample the fuck out of themselves.

“Damn, Otis. I told you we should have used that David Ruffin sample. Now the damn Four Tops done took our spot in this bitch.”

My mid-90s teen rap group Tha New Balance Ballerz made our debut record for a small indie label over one sleepover weekend at the rich white member’s house. He had a nice computer and a microphone with a popper stopper like in the real studio. We wrote and produced the entire shit from 4PM Friday to 11AM Sunday and celebrated with a Giants game later that afternoon.

My point? That shit is a solid XL record and took us 36 hours from beginning to end. Classic music comes from the combination of talent and care. While Kanye’s super-talented—far less so than he thinks—his love for the music right now appears akin to Bush’s love for the work of his presidency.

Question of the Day: Would you, the reader/listener, rather hear about the sweater that didn’t come back right from Korea than Kanye’s latest project?

I’m sure some of you would. For the rest of us that actually give a shit about the music Kanye’s supposed to be the king of—

Wait a fine Egyptian cotton-pickin minute. I thought Rihanna was the most important figure in contemporary music. That’s what he said this time last week. What the fuck is this man smoking?

Perhaps my confusion can be clarified with his sentiments on being the voice of a generation.

“If not me, then who? Someone could be a better rapper, dance better. But culturally impacting? When you look back at these four and a half years, who’s the icon at the end of the day? Who broke down color barriers? What other black guy would a white person use as a fashion reference?”

Okay, nevermind. I get it. Kanye’s Jackie Robinson and Rihanna’s Seattle Mariners-era Ken Griffey, jr. Cool. We’re good now.

Let’s then hope Rihanna keeps it Griffey and avoids the use of performance-enhancing substances in her recovery from the 30-day DL.

Questions? Comments? Requests? Think Kanye should be the Texas Rangers’ president? ron@ronmexicocity.com

    “While Kanye’s super-talented—far less so than he thinks—his love for the music right now appears akin to Bush’s love for the work of his presidency.” Hey Ron, GW Bush wants to know why its taking so fucking long to put his face on some money? Bush said,” How many wars do i have to start to get some respect up in this bitch?”

      hahahaha. bush is gonna get the -$50 bill!

    what a bag of vaginas!!!

    Damn. Before I finished reading, I thought to myself, “I thought Rihanna was The Beatles, early Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, B.B. King and Mozart all rolled into one” and then I saw this: “Wait a fine Egyptian cotton-pickin minute. I thought Rihanna was the most important figure in contemporary music.”

    So, if Kanye and Rihanna did a song together what would happen? Would it literally be the end of the world because nothing could come close to it? Would we enter some sort of parallel best-ever dimension? Would we be transported somewhere where his outfits don’t look gay? This is like some retarded Quantum Leap-meets-Star Trek shit…

      i think if you’re willing to do a line off the body part of kanye’s choosing, you can score yourself an invitation to such a place.

      • Pierzy

        Damn, why does he get to choose?? Ha! I’d rather buy a fucked up sweater from Korea than experience that shit!

  • BIGNAT

    he talked about the sweater because his confused afro mullet wearing bitch ass has nothing to talk about. he is laughing to himself that he made a album out of throw away hooks he could not think of any raps 2. he changed his name because to whatever it is because kanye can 2 easily be changed to kangay hahahaha. also ron ron you have picked up on what he meant on his second album. that when he get put on he will leave your ass for a white girl.

      damn, nat. is that what happened?

      i never seen a nigga so sad about creamer in the coffee. did he just find out he’s lactose intolerant?

  • Shawty J

    The Louis Vuitton Don needs the come back down from whatever he’s been puffing. End all, be all of music, BOY STOP. How’s he gonna brag about it taking 808s & Heartbreaks, I heard that album, and it’s a “L” at most, although apparently XXL gave it an “XL”, don’t know what they were smoking.

    I find Kanye’s egotistical self-contradicting nonsensical rants to be humorous. Kanye starting singing because he has nothing to rap about. He stopped singing after one album because he’s got nothing to sing about. Now he done jumped into fashion, and after he finds out how hard that is, he’s gonna quit that too. I consider myself a Kanye fan (of his first three albums to be exact) but I really wish he’d stop making up these egotistical statements to cover his ass and just admit his creative juices for music in general have died a little.

    “he is laughing to himself that he made a album out of throw away hooks he could not think of any raps 2.”

    Damn, Nat. You hit the nail on the head, because I listened to 808s & Heartbreak the other day and that’s exactly what it sounded like a bunch of left over hooks where he couldn’t think of any raps.

    kanye west is the most important thing to happen to music since michael jackson.

      *in unison*
      Ugh………..

      I predict sometime in the near future, he’ll get a portrait of his own face tatted across his whole back, & start eating his own feces because “no earthly nutrients are strong enough” for him.

      I swear to God, this nigga needs a scent of Summers Eve named after him.

      Maybe he’ll actually convince himself that his next record is so fucking fantastic that he won’t be able to top himself, ever. Then maybe he’ll back the fuck away from Hip Hop & finally design some kicks that don’t look like 1998 Fila prototypes. Let Louis deal with his bullshit shenanigans.

        Co sign on that Tony Grand, especially on the “unison” thing LOL

        Kangay’s head so far up his ass that he just magically turned himself inside out into a totally different human being; he thinks he’s a freakin alien with all this bs he talks about…like he’s the musical G.O.D. or something. Dude need to calm down…right about now, if he was to leave music it’d probably be better for hip hop…well mainstream anyway…wtf am I saying real hip hop nowadays is only in the underground anyway!

  • NM23

    Yo, Mex…this is the funniest shit Ive read all year…

  • giantstepp

    The arrogance of is this dude is un-fuckin-believable!! I dont wanna hear shit from his ass until he stands up to 50, period! Scared, mark ass, bitchmade, soft, shook, funny style ass nigga!

    “Now let’s talk about how my f*cking sweater didn’t come back right from Korea. That’s what’s interesting me”

    I think Kanye will be planning to open up his own sweat shop and hire some real Koreans that can do the job right.

  • sahara

    This dude don’t have a humble bone in his body. Poor thing is becoming delusional. Why do most of our “greats” (Marvin G, Micheal J, Donny H) end up to be nutcases? Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I think this another case of the “go-crazy nigger” pill being slipped to a would-be legend.

    “What other black guy would a white person use as a fashion reference?”

    I think this quote sums up that fruit’s target audience. Hip-hop n*ggas need not pay attention to Pee Wee Urkel any longer.

    • LEO

      LMAO HAHAHAHAH PEE WEE URKEL!!! THAT SHITS FUNNY AS FUCK!!! LOL…can we pleeeeeeeeease tag Kanye with that shit? pleeeeeeeeease?

  • Simple like ABC, 123

    “or watching A-Rod deliver the most insincere apologies in the history of forced apologies.”

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    A cousin… yeah right, hahaha!!!

    LV 54.11′s- I thought the exact same thing first time I saw them.
