Kanye West might have taken out the G-Unit general 50 Cent in the hyped 07’ album sale battle but he was no match for Stephen Colbert’s “Operation Humble Kanye.” Colber apparently didn’t take too kindly to Yeezy proclaiming himself “the voice of this generation.”
With A Colbert Christmas:The Greatest Gift Of All trailing 808s and Heartbreak in iTune sales, Colbert, the Comedy Central parody pundit, recently called Ye a “sunglass display mannequin” and urged fans to cop his holiday CD.
“I have to knock Kanye West’ album from the number one spot on iTunes and replace it with A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift Of All,” Colbert revealed during a recent episode. “This is war and I’m calling for a surge. Nation buy my album on iTunes this wednesday at exactly 5 p.m. This will propel it to the number one spot and possibly crash the national power grid, but Kanye will be force to admit that I am the voice of this generation of this decade of this wednesday at 5 P.M.”
Last night Colbert declared mission accomplished in “Operation Humble Kanye” as he sat at no. 2 and 808s dropped to no. 4 on the iTune charts. Colbert fueled the beef boasting that Al Roker declared him the real “voice of this generation,” and proceeded to invite Ye to fight on the show.-Michael Cohen
