  • Not kan-ye
    Kan-ye you SUCK! You should be ashamed of yourself! After that absolutley awful performance G. Bush hates you even more! Maybe it is time for someone from outside the hiphop community to write and perform something of value. Enough with I's hate the white man attitude.

      Seriously what the fuck are you talking about? The amount of retardedness in your comment is baffling.

    • Anonymous
      Back then EVERYBODY wore skinny jeans, that's all they were selling, so what's your point. Gays and hipsters brought them back the thing is that the line between the two is real thin.

    I'm a fan but this was disrespectful. he comes there in $10,000 leather skirt talking about how much money he has while the other performers were all uplifting and sang shit that fitted the mood. It's not just Ye tho, any rapper would be out of place at an event like this.
  • DJ NITTI
    I'm upset with Kanye West and this is coming from a ardent Kanye West fan. Last night Kanye West embarrassed the whole Hip Hop culture. He was suppose to represent for all of us but walked out there looking like a fucking clown with a leather skirt on. Aside from the fact that his actual performance wasn't on par with his usual shows. This is why love him or hate him we, the Hip Hop culture, need Jay Z. Jay Z would've went out there and killed it and made us all look good. Jay Z is Hip Hop's ambassador. If not Jay Z then who? Lil Wayne looking like a gargoyle in technicolor leggings and space boots? Rick Ross topless, huffing and puffing on stage? We need Jay Z. I thought Kanye West would be next in line but last night proved he just isn't ready yet. If Jay Z would've got up there and did Empire State of Mind with Alicia Keys it would have been a wrap.

      You really shouldn't go through life being so paranoid. He's just an arrogant rapper who makes hit songs. If a Satanic/Illuminati organization is behind him then they are obvious incompetent. What's the point to planting a rapper who writes songs about walking with Jesus? Hahah.
    • Anonymous
      u obviously havent noticed his transition. How long ago did he release that song. and do u listen to all the lyrics from that song.... don't call people paranoid because your uninformed.
    • Cealix
      Ever since the combination of the internet and Tupac's death, you fucks have been over analyzing everything and converted them into conspiracies right down to the atoms. You people probably think Kanye is Ankey scrambled up to hide the theory that Ankey means A New Kings Eternal Year.
    • CEALIX is a pozer
      There are MANY conspiracy FACTS!! CEALIX do you know the definition of conspiracy you ignorant ass?? This message is for the AWAKENED people, not the SLEEPING SHEEPLE, I know YOU ARE smarter than this, no ones paranoid waiting for Kanye to come gettem, I'd smack the bitch right outta YE, I got Cali Weed that makes me more paranoid!! LOL Kanye straight up worships the devil, so do the Illuminati members, come on now, look at your $1 bill, it has there logo on our money. SOOOO much evidence, either you see it or YOU don't at this point.

      I bet you sleep with one eye open with your alarm clock set at random times because you don't believe you need to wake up a set schedule. I bet your peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are all organic, and your butter knives are all pointed in the same direction to about-face any other silverware in your drawers in hopes they don't merge and create a new world order inside of your house. You probably avoid paper cups because you think adding any liquids to them can create a chemical that'll cause you to think differently once consumed. And how does it feel to be connected to a network that can track your every page visit, you gullible twat? Kanye is masturbating to our conversation as we speak-ith.
