    "In many ways, commercial art has moved into a sort of barren, hyper-capitalist wasteland. Clicks are agnostic and the machine keeps moving. What makes it confusing for us, and probably emboldening for Kanye, is that he’s so often been pilloried for being right. I’m thinking of things as charged as “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” and as seemingly innocuous as him insisting, years before she was given serious attention by critics, that Rihanna was one of the central artists in music. He’s been vindicated over and over. Which is why, when people observe that Kanye has “always been like this,” they’re being glib and not exactly correct. Yes, he’s always been outlandish and self-aggrandizing and not particularly in touch with the granular details on any issue. But his public performances used to be driven by ideas, or at least songs, that were daring and inspiring. Right now there’s a cold, Trumpian vacuum at the center of everything."

    Good shit man.

    "Right before Weekend Update, Kanye West slipped into a water bottle costume, grabbed his 18-year-old collaborator, and rapped on national TV about getting his d-ck sucked." LOL I'm dying

    @WPG you want to argue about the music itself, let’s do it. Please tell me what’s wrong with yikes and ghost town because I think those are great songs

  10. There are legions of Kanye and/or Trump fans online and in the real world who bemoan the supposed “biases” of any critic or listener who likes the album less than they do. These appeals to an imagined objectivity, where “objectivity” really means “more reflective of my worldview,” have existed as long as criticism has existed.

    Nice. You've definitely gotten a lot more graceful at tying your reviews into the political climate.

    Yeah I'm not too sure about this. The Bush and Taylor Swift incidents were just as unfounded as his contemporary comments on slavery. Sure, you could frame it as sticking up for artistry and deprived people in need, but you could also argue he was just being an uninformed asshole about it. You are applying the latter frame to his current actions, but if you read between the lines his public appearances are, aside from going against the grain, him sticking up for self-empowerment, and defying public norms and expectations, and seeking constructive collaboration with Trump to get things done. It's just a matter of which perspective you want to take.
