Kanye West versus the world

When you think about ignorance, there are many names that come to mind. Once you add arrogance to the equation, Kanye West should be your first thought.

Go to Google, search for arrogance and look at the images that come up. Early in the results, you’ll see a picture that reminds you why you have a problem with West; there’s a photo of him taking the microphone from Taylor Swift at the VMAs.

Whether it’s that special moment, or his near repeat with Beck at the Grammys, or my personal favorite – “You don’t got all the answers Sway!” – there are no shortage of reasons to dislike Kanye West.

It seems like West picks a fight with someone on Twitter every week and last week took the cake.

Bob Ezrin, legendary producer, recently commented on West’s music in an interview, simply pointing out that it wouldn’t stand the test of time.
Guess how that went over.

West took to Twitter to further assure everyone that nobody has made as big of an impact on music as himself. In a series of tweets, he criticized Ezrin’s credentials, making it clearer that West shields himself from music history.

I wanted to write an entire article about this feud, but it’s as simple as this: Bob Ezrin co-produced Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”, was the sole producer on Kiss’s “Destroyer” and several of Alice Cooper’s best albums. Kanye West made “Yeezus.”

It gets old after a while, to hear someone who’s convinced themselves that they are the Shakespeare of their generation. If you know West, you know I didn’t make that up.

As for as his disrespect towards other artists, like Beck and Taylor Swift, I think everyone misses the common theme – it’s always in defense of Beyonce. Watch out, Jay Z. I think Mr. West has a slight crush on your wife.

When you think about it, though, there really isn’t a better fit for West than Kim Kardashian. Watch an episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” sometime, if you can stand it. These two were made for each other.

Kardashian took to Twitter to defend her husband and brag about how he’d literally fight the world for her. Well, good news, Kim! He’s doing it, but it’s for himself.

Now we have to face the thought that West is actually planning to run for president in 2020. Remember when you saw the candidates for this election and asked yourself , “does it get any worse than this?” Now we know, don’t we?

Do me a favor. If you’re active on Twitter, send this to Kanye West. If I’m lucky, maybe he’ll do a rant about me. I could really use the credibility.
