Thread: Official 2010 Kanye West Thread

    Man, Kanye is two steps ahead of y'all idiots with this brilliant PR strategy of "stirring up controversy" by alienating his entire fan base. All those farmers, coal miners, and neo-Nazis he's trying to appeal to are really gonna boost his album sales, and they'll definitely buy tickets to his live shows.

    Just yesterday I ran into a 73-year old vet with a MAGA hat at the gun range and he was all "Hey you know where I can find some of them Yeezy 700s?"

    Ever the achiever, he found an even worse take than "Donald Trump is maybe good."

    I've wondered if some wealthy republican donor gave Kanye 7 figures for a couple tweets just to distract the news cycle a bit. Kris Kardashian has made millions with selling indirect ad space on social media and kanye probably needs the money if all his clothing ventures were as much of a significant money pit as rumoured.

    This actually makes a significant amount of sense given the dual need of debt relief and press attention for new projects.

    I've gone from predicting Kanye will play Coachella to expecting a performance at a Trump rally.

    Yeah...at first I thought he could bounce back to headline some festivals, but this has spiraled out of control. "Slavery was a choice"...yikes. At this point it feels like we're headed for another hospitalization more than another album. Best case scenario for him is that festivals are holding off on a signature on an offer to see where he's headed mentally and if he can clean this mess up. Worst case for him is that he's not even in consideration. If anybody signed him before this mess, you can bet they are scrambling to see how to get out of it.

    Conflating blind contrarianism with being a "free thinker" really does require a special level of stupid.

    He may be in a position of not being able to secure or afford insurance for his touring (https://www.billboard.com/articles/c...wsuit-resolved), due to his last questionable cancellation and subsequent lawsuit of his insurer. In this case, promoters would make him personally liable if he doesn't perform. If he still has a smart professional team behind him (yeah I know) they may be holding off until a promoter steps up and doesn't require this or he's able to get insurance.

    This is a compelling thread arguing Kanye is doing a piece of performance art mirroring one from the 70s. I totally believe it after reading. Not sure it makes it acceptable, but does change my perspective a bit.

    I hate that I believe this cause even if true, what he's doing is dangerous.


    Edit: I also don’t believe in his intelligence to pull off a desired positive outcome because he is too self absorbed and self centered to make the goal about the greater good as opposed to wanting people to say “Wow kanye is smart”

    Right, agreed - I don't think it's a good idea. I could believe he thinks it's for the best (in the same way that so many people after the election were like "WE HAVE TO LISTEN TO BOTH SIDES" before realizing that there are a lot of terrible people not worth listening to). He just hasn't thought it through.

    In a way, it's comforting to view what he's doing as having a purpose rather than the ramblings of a guy who has gone off the rails. And it did at least give me pause for a moment, like: "I'm rejecting this concept outright, which is exactly the point he's trying to make." But he has too big of a platform, and what he's doing is only having the reverse effect of fueling the coyote's rage, rather than taming it. Maybe there's a way to do it and actually calm the coyote, but he's not figured that out.

    The idea that this is all part of a performance art piece with greater meaning than what appears on the surface is fan wish fulfillment. Even in the unlikely event that this all means something more, it's still awful.

    It's okay to let him go.

    Here's the $$ amount and how he hid the money.

    http://www.tmz.com/2018/10/11/kim-ka...lls-huge-loss/

    In 2013 Kanye bought a Bel Air house for $9mil
    In 2017 a Ukrainian billionaire bought house from Kanye for nearly $18mil(record for the neighborhood)
    In 2018 billionaire dumped house months later for $14mil

    Flipping mansion to international buyers is one of the easiest ways to launder money.

    Turns out Republicans are okay with celebrities having political opinions if that opinion is to bring back slavery...
