Kanye West Has Always Been Ashy

Kanye West in recent months has been….erratic. Hes been pissed that Jay Z won’t bring his daughter over to play with his, that his clothing line didn’t take off, His wife was robbed, and its kind of debatable if anyone actually liked his most recent album. But the biggest issue this far is the debate over his statement that if he had voted he would have voted for Trump, and most recently his publicised meeting with Trump. People have been saying that Kanye West sold out and to many hip-hop fans this is a bridge too far.

But I’m here to tell you all a sad little truth about Kanye: Kanye was never “Woke” Kanye is, if anything always has been a big fucking Hotep. For those of you reading this who don’t know what that means, it's basically all those hyper afrocentric black people who only seem to care about Egypt, AKA the first part of Africa to slowly let itself get robbed culturally by civilizations in the mediterranean and eventually the Middle East. These are the people who claim they’re all for african empowerment, as long that leaves Straight Black Men leading at the top. They listen to charlatans like Dr. York, Dr. Seibei, Dr. Umar Johnson and Tariq Nasheed (Although it really does feel like that crazed misogynists advice on women seems to become more relevant as I get older…)

Anyway, when it comes to Kanye, the issue is that People keep on putting this image that Kanye was woke simply because...He said George Bush doesn’t care about black people? That's it? God, peoples minimum for wokeness is mighty light. Which honestly leads me to believe alot of this generation's concept of wokeness is “Just troll racist white people and we’ll consider you woke” But if we're being honest, the closest he came to being woke in his music was “Crack music”:
How we stop the black panthers? Ronald Reagan cooked up an answer. You hear that? What Jill Scott was hearin. When our heroes and heroines got hooked on heroin. Crack raised the murder rate in DC and Maryland, we invested in that it's like we got Merril-Lynched. And we been hangin from the same tree ever since. Sometimes I feel the music is the only medicine. So we cook it, cut it, measure it, bag it,sell it. The fiends cop it, nowadays they cant tell if that's that good shit. We ain't sure man, put the CD on your toungue yeah, thats pure man.
But once you go beyond that, he quickly goes into very non woke Territory. He shits on women:
What's the cause of the poor smell? She said "I just cleaned up baby I can't tell" Why every ghetto bitch gotta smell like Love Spell or that God-damn cucumber bath and body works, I can still smell the sweat the shit hardly works, what about Cool Water that shit probably worse
Bitches about Child Support:
18 years, 18 years. She got one of your kids, got you for 18 years. I know somebody paying child support for one of his kids, his baby mamma car and crib is bigger than his. You will see him on TV any given Sunday, win the Superbowl and drive off in a Hyundai. She was supposed to buy your shorty TYCO with your money, she went to the doctor got lipo with your money, she walking around looking like Michael with your money. Should've got that insured got GEICO for your money, money, money
Praises White Women:
He got that ambition, baby, look in his eyes, this week he mopping floors, next week it's the fries. So, stick by his side, I know this dude's balling but yeah that's nice, and they gone keep calling and trying, but you stay right girl, and when you get on he leave your ass for a white girl

Cause you will never get on top of this.so mommy best advice is just to get on top of this. have you ever had sex with a pharaoh. I put the pussy in a sarcophagus.now she claiming that I bruise her esophagus

And for a final measure, He straight up disavows his so called “Woke” past that you all praise him for:
And I’ll never let my son have an ego. He’ll be nice to everyone, wherever we go, I mean, I might even make ‘em be Republican. So everybody know he love white people, and I’ll never let ‘em leave his college girlfriend, and get caught up with the groupies in the whirlwind, and I’ll never let ‘em ever hit the telethon, I mean even if people dyin’ and the world end, see, I just want ‘im to have an easy life, not like Yeezy life. Just want ‘im to be someone people like, don’t want ‘im to be hated, all the time judged
My goal with writing this is not so much to say that Kanye was never the woke hero you wished he’d return to, its to point out that most of you we’re projecting like a motherfucker onto Kanye what you wished more rappers are like. Honestly, if more of you would just admit that Kanye was just talented but was a problematic as everyone else, maybe, just maybe Kanye wouldn’t have half the pressure he has on him. Half his fan base wants him to make more of the music he enjoys putting out, and you, the woke crowd are expecting Kanye to adhere to your agenda of being aware of social justice and the like. No wonder he wound up hospitalized

The problem is, all arguments aside, there are plenty of earthy woke rappers out here like…*sigh* J. Cole. but sadly Kanye is not one of them nor has never been one. So for the love of god, please stop hoping for “old Kanye” old Kanye was just Kanye without being a household name. And even that came with controversy. The age of the internet and thinkpieces will never let him live down what he once was, you won’t, I won’t. So let's get on with our lives.

  1. Kanye has problems for sure. People need to evolve beyond the quasi-intellectual fringes of black politics. The most loudest folks (like those mentioned above, and of course, Dr. Sebi is dead, but his "cures" live on) have very little to offer in terms of deeper intellectual examinations of most topics. Being able to call out egregious examples of white racism is low hanging fruit. But going further their views are all over the place with the silliness.
