Kanye West’s Verbal Vendettas
Kanye West has a verbal vendetta, and this time it is directed at President Obama.
Kanye West, known for his outlandish comments and lack of a verbal filter, is at it again.
We all remember at the 2009 VMA’S when Kanye West rudely interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech to express his distaste with Taylor winning over Beyoncé for best video. Kanye West was recently quoted talking trash about Justin Timberlake’s comeback single “Suit and Tie” in which his business partner and longtime friend rap artist Jay Z was also featured. “I’ve got love for Hov but I ain’t f–king with that ‘Suit & Tie,” West said.
Also, we cannot forget in 2006 when West expressed his views on the former President George Bush during the tragedy of hurricane Katrina. West stated on NBC that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” which started a controversy in the media.
Here Kayne West is again lashing out at the president and other people on his verbal vendetta check list.
“I don’t give a f–k what the president’s got to say,” the rapper intoned in a freestyle-like screed that also included digs at Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, the Grammys and “business people”(huffingtonpost.com).
I personally love Kanye and his music, but has Kanye gone too far this time?
