Kanye West is an American born rap star that originaly found his fame rapping to the beat in inner city USA. After making a break through in the music industry Kanye has gone on to create several top awards. Kanye is currently engaged to Kim Kardashian.
On Wednesday night (February 24) the “Black Skinhead” rapper, who has won 21 Grammy trophies, claimed that the Grammys have always given the shaft to black artists. “I know so many cool artists whose hearts have been broken by the [Grammys’] politics including mine. We need to fix this. I feel the Grammy awarding system is way off and completely out of touch.”
There’s something strange going on with Kanye West as of late, given his increased penchant for verbal tirades on Twitter and in person.
On Tuesday night (February 23) the “Jesus Walks” rapper took to his social networking platform to take aim at music producer Bob Ezrin’s kids after Ezrin accused him of “not advancing the music industry.”
He’s been an avid supporter of Adidas and even has his own Yeezy line with the athletic brand, so when Kanye West heard rumors that his sister-in-law Kylie Jenner was working with rival label Puma he lost his cool.
Initially, the outspoken rapper tweeted, "1000% there will never be a Kylie Puma anything. That's on my family! 1000% Kylie is on Yeezy team!!! Puma we gone give you your measly million dollars back!!! Never try to divide the family!!!”
He’s no stranger to profanity-laced rants, and it sounds like Kanye West had a fully-fledged toddler-style temper tantrum at “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend.
The “Love Lockdown” rapper is heard in an audio clip calling SNL staffers “white motherf*ckers” while also saying Taylor Swift is a “fake a**,” and repeatedly shouting “Don’t f*ck with me!” and threatening to pull out of his performance.
He’s been pretty active in the Twitterverse as of late, and Kanye West's latest rant contains something of a confession.
Following his remarks about being the best musician alive, the “Jesus Walks” hitmaker tweeted, “Man, I was thinking about when I commented on the idea of ‘taking the rap throne’… That statement hasn’t been sitting well with me… That’s a dated mentality. I’m not on that. Every rapper is somebody’s favorite. Some rappers got the club. Some got the radio. Some got the conscience. Some got the streets. Everybody has something they do the best.”
The 38-year-old rapper launched yet another Twitter rant in the early hours of Monday morning (February 15), telling fans that he cannot achieve what he is destined to unless he has some financial backing.
