Perfect. It’s like they always say, rap what you know.

Congratulations, of course, to Mr. West for finally arriving at his popstar indulgent costume moment. It is a rite of passage for anyone climbing the fame ladder. It took 50 Cent six years to invent Pimpin’ Curly. The Beastie Boys were successful for eight years before making the “Sabotage” video. In just four and a half years, West has transformed himself from a regular human being with a narcissistic hunger for international recognition to fill the void of his standard-issue “life” into a famous human being whose narcissistic hunger is fulfilled enough that he can “have fun” with it (in the pursuit of even more recognition and all-consumingly-desirable attention). Brava.

    Very misleading post. This a guest appearance by Kanye on someone elses track. The track is by 88 Keys.

      Yes, extremely misleading, Videogum. After all, you acted like Kanye West dressed up like an old man and rap about Viagra. In reality, he dressed up like an old man to perform in a 88 Keys music video and rap about Viagra.

    Alright, I can’t seem to find it anymore on youtube, but kanye did a remix of rich boy’s song “throw some D’s” a few years back and in that video he also (inexplicably) was dressed up as an old man while rapping about breast implants.

  6. Yeah Kanye is da man. I’ve been on his music since tha 8th grade, i been hook on his shit ever since.
