KANYE WEST: IS HE STILL RELEVANT?
As a person who grew up listening to R&B and hip hop for most of my adult life, I could tell when someone’s time is up in the spotlight. As a former fan of Kanye West, I was surprised to see that he was dropping yet another album. The good-ole days of “Through The Wire” and “Gold Digger” are gone for this Chicago native. In a recent MTV article by Charles Holmes, the washed-up rapper announces via social media, that he is dropping two new albums in June 2018. See link to the MTV article below:
I would like to share my thoughts on Kanye West and the evolution of his downfall.
It all started with the Taylor Swift incident at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards a few years ago. As you may recall, Mr. West interrupted Taylor Swift and shouted his opinion about one of Beyoncé’s videos being one of the best videos of all time. This action showed a lack of class for the hip hop star. This one incident started Kanye’s downfall.
One cannot notice that everyone who associates themselves with the Kardashians turns out to be a bust. Just look at all the sports stars who got with a Kardashian and see if they still have productive careers in their respective sport. Kanye and these other sports stars seem to get the “Kardashian Curse” which cripples their careers. Perhaps, the money is too good and they don’t need their careers anymore.
As you can see, Kanye has no more place in the hip hop world. It is time for the former hip hop megastar to hang up his rapping shoes and continue his career as a Kardashian associate. He is no longer relevant in the music industry.
