Kanye West: Rihanna’s the World’s Greatest

Rihanna is so important to our culture … to pop music… I feel like she is the most important artist in music and has the most potential. Her taste level and her age … she has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time.” Kanye West, “On-Air with Ryan Seacrest”

Save the umbrella. Save the world.

I’m just as sorry as anyone to hear that Rihanna caught a beatdown from Chris Brown for any reason. However, to call her the most important artist in music and to say that she’s following a trajectory to be the greatest artist of all time indicates that a certain college dropout’s fro-luster product may not have been FDA-approved.

Either Kanye’s been fuckin with the sheen can from the back of the Korean store or homeboy didn’t take his pills the other morning. Y’all know how Martin Louis the King, jr. gets when he ain’t had his medicine.

Young Buck couldn’t be more confroosed than I right now. Here I’ve been assuming all the while that Kanye thought Kanye was the most important artist in all of music. How were any of us to know he’d long since placed all his eggs in the bun-and-cheese basket of a non-producing, non-writing songbird out of the Caribbean’s Beyonce-shaped sugar cookie cutter?

[Blogger's Note: I did not come here to be a sugar cookie getter.]

Somewhere Mariah Carey‘s in a dark room doing a massive line of the uncut off of Nick Cannon’s vice-clenched scrotum.

I thought overstatement of this magnitude was generally reserved for posthumous releases. Kanye re-writes the rules wherever he goes. Usually one would have to die during or before their prime to get a nod like that. Now, all it takes is getting slapped around by a lesser artist.

Note taken.

Shit. I’m gonna get my little sister a microphone and Pro-Tools for her birthday. Then I’m gonna become her manager and convince her to stand in front of Gucci Mane next time he’s playing a local community center or some shit. She can be the female Tupac, except with all the benefits of still being around and shit.

Didn’t Kanye go on record saying Beyonce is our Tina Turner? Where does this leave Rihanna in his twisted little celebrity ranker? Is she supposed to be Mahalia Jackson? Perhaps homegirl from The Sound of Music? I don’t know what to believe at this point.

I’m also more interested in where this leaves Kanye in his own personal scope of the entertainment hierarchy. Notice that shag-hawk aside, he didn’t make a scene at the Grammy Awards this year. Maybe he’s resolved himself to his throne atop music’s Mount Olympus. Mr. West is Plug-in Jesus. The rest of these mere mortal sangers, rapsters and so-called musicians that need his shaghawk-accented awesomeness can call themselves “artists.”

–Of which Rihanna is clearly the greatest. Please excuse me while I rethink my entire musical life.

Negro, please.

    Question.

    Who made Koonye spokesman?

    Ain’t this the same dude trying to sell red rubber skippies?

    The only thing big about Rhianna’s career is her forehead.

    Regardless of anything, these rich naive kids are passing around the Bumpy Johnson.

    Rihanna may have some good songs but one of the greatest? No where close.

  • bongolock

    shout out to dylan!!

    hahaha

  • Vicious Seiger

    Rihanna… Rihanna possibly the greatest of all time? Either Drama West is campaign like Obama to get in her pants or he has been doing to much cocaine & weed laced blunts. In this day and age of artistry he somehow formulated the idea that she is over Alicia Keys, Beyonce [hey, she has better music than Island Girl], India Arie and Keyshia Cole? And that’s just some of her female counterparts we’re not even talking about her male compatriots. Kanye, do you really want Jay’s and Chris Brown’s Sloppy Seconds? Yeah you do. Rihanna the greatest… hot damn you’re funny, Kanye.

  • Marco317

    Damn Jay-Z to hell for bringing us Kanye, Rick Ross and Jeezy. Mr. Valtrex-User, u should do a negro please on DMX gettin in trouble in jail and threating to “beat up a inmate for respect” and not wanting to take his medications ….

  • amar

  • Jon Dog

    Kanye West is a joke. Who could even take this dude serious? He was better when he was talkin’ “through the wire”.

  • sealsaa

    You expect anything less from the ‘tard who compared Soulja Boy to Nas? And decided to do an album entirely sang in auto tune? I’m not suprised by anything Kanye says or does nowadays.

  • marz

    when KANYE first came out he was making nerds look cool. now he just makes nerds look like nerds.sorry lol………….

  • Shawty J

    Kanye doesn’t know who the greatest is. And the reason why he’s not rating himself is because he wants to be a “designer”, whatever…

    “Shit. I’m gonna get my little sister a microphone and Pro-Tools for her birthday. Then I’m gonna become her manager and convince her to stand in front of Gucci Mane next time he’s playing a local community center or some shit. She can be the female Tupac, except with all the benefits of still being around and shit.”

    ROFL

  • geico lizard

    Mahalia Jackson is the singing voice you hear when you walk into the gates of Heaven(if you believe in that kind of thing). Kanye is on Ri Ri side and Jay z is trying to kill CB.

    I think in a fair fight Cb would beat up Jay z. You need some pure cambodian breast milk to dunk those sugar cookies in Ron.

    • big dick cheney

      Of course Chris Brown would beat the shit outta Jay-z. wait come to think of it, Jay was takin karate classes for a minute or two wit Billy Blanks.

    Look, what Kanye soft ass needs to do is stand up to 50. Im sick of his ass letting 50 bust shots and he continue to look the other way as if his ass aint geting bust on (no homo). Ron Mex I say we start a movement demanding his punk ass to stand up to 50!! Until then, we dont wanna hear shit from him.

  • Worley

    Forget all that. Let’s talk about Anita Baker’s big grandma booty. Better yet, Negro Please Magic Johnson for acting like he was happy to be there with his wife. You KNOW that n*gga wanted to go back stage and holla at Gramma.

    • geico lizard

      MTO had a picture of Oprah in some sweat pants and she has a fat ass to match those big ass titties.
