    [–] Most iconic kanye picture? bendythebrave 1 points ago in Kanye

    I mean the Kanye shrug from the taylor indecent is pretty iconic

    [–] UNPOPULAR KANYE OPINIONS bendythebrave 1 points ago in Kanye

    Yep! People think that Kanye only started changing the game with 808's. But TCD, LR and Graduation were all absolutely groundbreaking at their respective times. It's just hard to see that because we have evolved so far from that point.

    I think it might also come down to an age thing on this sub possibly? If TLOP was the first Kanye album you were around for the release of, you are always going to think New Kanye is better. But I remember buying TCD and I still go back and listen to that album at least 3 times a week in it's entirety and it has been around for nearly 15 years. Same for Late Reg. Also watching him play Late Orchestration live on the strings at abbey road was just absolutely unheard of at that time for a rap star. Im also being really assumptive about the age on this sub but I know alot of people are still in HS so they won't ever understand what it was like to see rap done with a fucking orchestra. It was just the wildest time. But if you weren't there for that whole inception ofc you are going to think New Kanye is better and I fully appreciate that.

    I don't think there is a better to be honest. Kanye's old stuff is better lyrically, his new stuff is better thematically.

    I've seen Runaway live quite a few times. It's quite interesting to parallel the first time to the last time.

    1st time: Full ballerinas on stage when he toured MBDTF. It was clean, sharp & 100% perfect.

    Then when he toured Yeezus his entire face was covered, he fucked around with the MPC a lot during, there was a 15 minute speech beforehand and after. It was just a beautiful mess. And I mean that in the best way.

    Two very different experiences but the one consistency - when that opening fucking note hits everyone LOSES it.

    This was a couple of months before Donda passed - "Hey mama can you see me!" - truly tragic. He loved her so much, the way his face lights up during that line. He just really wanted her to be proud of him. Even the nature of this performance and his overall aura on stage.. he was a completely different person before she died.

    Kanye is a total liability for them.

    "Can I add that he do spaz out at his shows"

    His performance would be incredible, but they will never do it.

    Exactly. Chris Brown beats Rihanna within a mm of her life and he's still selling out arenas, having docos made about him so we feel sorry etc etc. Kim makes a consensual sex tape, has it released un-consensually, turns it into a near on billion dollar empire but gets slut shamed hourly.

    Fundamentally it absolutely is sexism. Women being in control of their own shit still does not fly with a lot of people.

    [–] I'm sorry to say this as a huge Kanye fan bendythebrave 2 points ago in Kanye

    I think the reason is not bc of TS. but bc his albums after grad were all "concept" albums. And not as digestible to the general public.

    [–] I just listened to Kanye's song "Bittersweet Poetry" for the first time. bendythebrave 11 points ago in Kanye

    Such a gem of a track. It's a real shame it's not on spotify.

    Ya cut me deep bitch cut me like surgeraaayyh

    He wasn't just abusive towards Rihanna though. He also got her bludgeoned up face tatood on him. He's been charged with hit & runs, holding women hostage. He's not a good fella. And I'm sure if he did it to your ma, or sister, or auntie or grandma or any important woman in your life you'd feel differently.
