OH MY GOD I LOVE MINDY
White folks are being white folks and using “New Slaves” to support their own tired racist tired ideology. They liken it more to “All Falls Down” than to “Crack Music”. Hell, they haven’t said shit about ”Crack Music“ yet.
And don’t get it twisted, artists are saying the same shit ‘Ye is, and have been for years. Kanye isn’t the only one, and he sure isn’t one of the best at it. What bothers me is that Kanye is the only one (lets face it) that you can find on the playlists of white America. None of us would be surprised if we found “Stronger” on Paul Ryan’s P90x workout playlist, follow?
They’ve given this nigga so much press they have to write about him now. They like “Gold Digger” so much they have to listen to him at parties (you ain’t got no fuckin’ Yeezy?). Labels have to play at least two of this man’s singles on the radio (so you see why they worried). His shit gets out there. So it’s a problem when he’s saying real shit, and it’s still not coming across.
So for those who don’t know:
“New Slaves”is not some self-reflective song condemning ”rampant materialism in the black community”.
It is attacking that very racist myth that permeates through all levels of white power structures. Fashion. Press. Government. The church- Catholic and Baptist. Middle-class, upper-class, and lower-class America.
This is not about Kanye’s obsession with fashion, it is about being reduced to nothing but a black man obsessed with fashion by the white fashion industry, white media, and white America.
People are thinking ‘Ye is back on his College Droupout shit, but he never fell off it. It takes the man screaming into a camera and throwing it on walls across the globe for them to finally listen to what he’s saying. He’s not on some new “dark” creative tip. Being black in America was always bleak to ‘Ye. Oh, but this time he didn’t use a sunny Lauryn Hill sample.
But they still don’t hear you tho
and you know, fuck VIBE too, who still bitches that Kanye can’t be a “Backpacker” ‘cause he rocks leather Givenchy bags. Y’all lookin at the wrong things. And you really think Yasiin doesn’t spend good money on his wardrobe? I’m tired of that shit. Really doe.
Just waiting for Pitchfork and Rolling Stone to join the party. Just waiting.
Listen. Kanye West is a rich asshole. He’s always been about wealth and luxury, even when he didn’t have it. He does know that no matter what he does, he will always be reduced to Luis-Vitton-fiending negro.
This goes to show that a man can shout a truth at the top of his lungs on the roofs of buildings around the world to the thousands, and his words still lay on deaf ears. They’re not going to listen if they don’t want to listen.
*If ‘Ye needs to be called out on something, it shouldn’t be his expensive tastes. It should be the”Champagne wishes/thirty white bitches” shit he still spews. Or the fact that he still thirsts for critical white approval. But you can’t hear that struggle in any of his songs. You should critique his strange fetish for white symbols of status and wealth. Call him out on saying shit like he’s a “proud non-book reader”. Call him out on signing Big Sean fuck
so I was watching Johnny Bravo
