Kanye is the redefinition of Hip Hop’s thug. I said it and I will be blasted for it but consider what the thug mentality brings to the Hip Hop and urban space. It is a true “I don’t give a fu*ck” attitude followed by action. After all its nothing if not real. Kanye did not start off a thug, rather like almost every rapper he just wanted to get on and say his piece, his way within the confines of what was cool amongst his crew and the urban community at the time. The key difference is as Kanye grew and became more influential, he expanded and pushed barriers. If this has been by design or if he truly doesn’t give a f*ck remains to be scene. For now all we can do is watch the show that is Kanye and appreciate that we are watching a master, better yet an icon at work.
I am not one of those die hard Kanye fans that I personally find annoying and small minded. Everything he does is not epic. But the truth is after we are gone there will be generations looking back and name dropping him as a cultural, forward thinking icon.
No drugs or bodies have been pushed or bodied but it would be hard to say Kanye isn’t killing everything right now. Even his detractors have to acknowledge him (ask the president).

Very few are creating visually artistic music videos on consistent in Hip Hop like Roc Nation (Not sure if Kanye is still signed under Jay but whatever). This video does not fall short of that standard. The imagery is powerful and the message is designed to be discussed no doubt. Its time to let the art speak for itself.
So what do we think?
