I think some of you guys need to log off and read a few books like Freedom From The Known by Jiddu Krishnamurti, Are Prisons Obsolete by Angela Davis, and The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander. We really don't have choices. We have options between bad and worst. Choice is a illusion in America. Our school system doesn't promote knowledge of self, the school system focuses on making sure we can perform tasks well enough to function in the work force. We are taught to go to school, get married, than get a house which all lead to debt...to pay for the debt we must work. The common American is no more than a indentured servant, trying to rid themselves of debt until they die. Like it or not, we are slaves. We follow man made rules, and don't question anything.
they white so they think the "crackas" on they side.

civil war basically made black men equal to white men so they could enslave them all. the American dream. the same 10 families who ran sh*t then, run sh*t now. u work for the same mfs yo great granddaddy did under a different umbrella

fu*k a Charlamagne....This dude making videos like people actually care about his stupid opinion....

Everyone on Earth is a walking contradiction. Just look at Pac. Dude rapped about respecting women one minute then rapped about treating girls like hoes in the next. All artists do it because they are struggling with the duality of the good lives they want to live and the ratchet lives they find themselves in. This donkey wouldn't know that cuz ever since he was Wendy Williams' flunky dude just rode coattails

Bottom line for the Kanye stans that dont get it is that Kanye keeps complaining about the "industry" and the "white man" and how he hates them and they keep abusing him

yet

he's obviously still going into these meetings with a big smile on his face closing more and more deals where the "white man" probably makes $4 off him for every $1 he makes.

His music is on some rebellious afro-centric shyt yet everything about his lifestyle is the opposite ( he spends all his money on euro-centric luxury goods, all his time at euro-centric fashion shows, keeps name dropping corporate brands in his music, trying to keep up with the kardashians)

this man IDOLIZES euro-centric culture obsessively in his life and on half of his music but on the other half he wants to "rage against the machine" and "uplift his community" , even if you think that's not contradictory, you have to admit it's counter productive. It's like someone trying to run a farm in Kansas while living in a penthouse in Manhattan.
"i aint even going to act holier than though cause fu*k it, i went to jacob with 25 thou, before i had a house and i'll do it again, cause i wanna be on 106 and park, pushing a benz, i wanna act baller-ific like its all terrific, i got a couple a past-due bills i wont get specific, i got a problem with spending before i get it, we all self-conscious im just the first to admit it"

this is why i dont see it as complaining (and why i completely disagree with char comments about this being contradictory). kanye's sentiments have stayed relatively the same throughout. it just looks like now more people are taking notice

he has admitted to being a "new slave" way before he made the song for it

so to me its not a matter of him rapping about one thing or doing another or him being a "walking contradiction", its more about the constant back and forth battle that most if not ALL OF US HAVE, the f!ght over what we want and what we want to be. good vs. evil, self conscious vs sub conscious

whether its i get around or dear mama

Its pretty simple to me. You cannot nickname yourself the louis vuitton don one minute then the next chastise corporations. There has to be a segue where you convey that at some point you had an epiphany and you discover your mistep. Bonus points for apologizing for perpetuating peoples gross overspending and consumerism by his lyrics.

He never chastised corporations. He chastised their influence on art. That point has gone over everyone's heads.

His point is pretty obvious considering that Jay Z is now ushering in a new era in music. One where corporate sponsors will support artists therefore impose their influence on said artists to appeal to a broader demographic. Kanye's protest is valid, idiots. It has nothing to do with how he spends his money.

where is Kanye saying that he hates the "White man"... where is all this racism against White people from Kanye and where can I find it?
Kanye never once said he hates White people. He's with a White woman. He has a half White baby. Are people serious with this sh*t?.....

White people like it when Black people are quiet and not verbal. They prefer us to act like monkeys in videos perpetuating every single stereotype....yet they don't find that racist. They prefer Kanye rap about gold diggers rather than new slaves. They fear a conscious Black man

We don't have a choice now. Can you still eat without making money? Can you have a roof over your head without money? In America? We are new slaves. Money is the master.

Yeezus is the only Kanye album I've liked. Black Skinhead, New Slaves and Bound 2 are the worst tracks on the album.
