Journalists have traced the source of Kanye West's ego back to his mother.
Donda West was talking to the press ahead of her appearance at the Baltimore Book festival this weekend.
"I do think that Kanye is a voice that can definitely be used and should be used not only in hip-hop but across the arts, period.
“I think he is broader than a genre. … I think he has a calling to reach a number of people. Kanye keeps it real. He touches the people.
“You never know how words can save a person's life, physically or otherwise. People like Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi or, in my view, Barack Obama, or Jesus Christ — people whose job it is to tell the truth — I see that in Kanye."
Stop. In the interview with the Baltimore Sun, West's mother had the foresight to pre-empt this news story. Speak:
“Now, people like you are gonna go, 'Oh, Kanye's mom said he's like Jesus!' but … when you have a gift, you didn't get it by yourself. … Your truth is your truth.”
Hear ye, hear ye:
"Let's get lost tonight
You could be my black Kate Moss tonight
Play secretary, I'm the boss tonight.
And you don't give a f**k what they all say, right?
Awesome, the Christian in Christian Dior
Damn they don't make 'em like this anymore
I ask, cause I'm not sure
Do anybody make real shit anymore?
Bow in the presence of greatness
Cause right now thou has forsaken us
You should be honored by my lateness
That I would even show up to this fake shit
So go ahead go nuts, go ape shit
Especially in my pastel, all my bape shit
Act like you can't tell who made this
New gospel homey take six, and take this, haters."
We found this earlier.
