An Old Kanye West Secret Tape Surfaces, And He Sounds Plain Ridiculous
This is an old story but a Kanye West secret tape has surfaced and made its way to celebrity gossip blog Gawker. You just have to listen to it to understand how mad-angry he was just after he had brutally interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. It was supposedly recorded just after the ceremony, and West sounds like an angry cat ready to jump at everyone’s throat. The people around him haven’t been identified, but many are first laughing, then they are questioning his unbelievable anger. Here is the transcript:
‘I’d rather just let the [inaudible] speak for itself. You know, it’s like, I was happy to be in a situation where people couldn’t say, oh, I was trying to promote my own song. For the times that I’ve, like, defended myself… [Tape break] I’m pushing the envelope! I wrote my fuckin’ ‘Run This Town’ verse for a fuckin’ month! When I heard Eminem’s verse on the Drake shit, I went back and rewrote my shit for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I fuckin’ care! You know what I’m saying? And that’s what I’m saying. Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé. As long as I’m alive! And if I’m alive, kill me then! Kill me then! As long as I’m alive, you gon’ have to deal with it. ‘Cause there ain’t gonna be no more motherfucking Elvises with no James Browns.’
Is there any logic there? Because he wrote his verse in 2 days, Taylor Swift can’t win?? He makes such a big deal of this that I conclude he usually scamps a song in a hour. The only connection between both idea is a racist one: me, a black guy, working hard –> this white girl can’t win, the no more Elvis without James Brown allusion later goes in the same direction, but Kanye is not racist, right? He continues:
‘[A female voice asks, “Why are you so angry? What’s the anger?”] Because my mother got arrested for the fuckin’ sit-ins. My mother died for this fame shit! I moved to fuckin’ Hollywood chasing this shit. My mother died because of this shit. Fuck MTV.
It ain’t no love. What the fuck was Pink performing? Don’t nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the fuck Pink perform two songs and I didn’t even get asked to perform “Heartless.” “Heartless” is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don’t know that Pink song! But I noticed that she’s pink! They put me in a fuckin’ room and [inaudible – maybe “projected it”].
[A male voice asks, “How the fuck did Eminem get the Best Hip-Hop song in 2008?”] Eminem won Best Video! Rap Video! Yo, when he wont that shit, I was so happy. I was so happy I [unclear – “ran all this shit,” maybe]. I said, “Nigga, I’m gon’ do this until y’all put a bullet in my head. I’m runnin’ up to y’all, put a…” [tape cuts].’
Kanye West is a very troubled guy, he mixes everything, his mother died following complications after plastic surgery and he dares to talk about sit-ins in the same sentence! ‘My mother died for this fame shit’, So the whole civil right movement was for them to be famous? He is confusing human rights and fame, he thinks that the only recognition a black guy can have is fame, this is sad. Plus the ‘until y’all put a bullet in my head’ is troubling, he sounds like a sort of Tupac/Martin Luther King wannabe, but he is none of them.
He is probably not happy that this old rant has surfaced, and whoever leaked it probably doesn’t want any good for Kanye! He is so melodramatic it’s becoming ridiculous, does he even realizes he sounds like an little girl with an inferiority complex and a huge ego. Plus ‘I moved to fuckin’ Hollywood chasing this shit’ is actually a shameful confession: Kanye admits he is a fake, he isn’t an artist, he just writes songs to be famous.
