At my current place of employment, chalk board walls engulf the office.
People draw images, write great quotes, and use this as a canvas to express their creativity while at the 9 to 5.
Someone (who I don’t know) took it upon themselves to write this famous quote on the wall:
I’m gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had the greatest video of all time
Then this person continued by drawing a pair of Shaolin styled sunglasses that can automatically be associated with the creator of this infamous quote, Kanye West.
The following Monday, the quote had been erased.
1. It was offensive (to who? Taylor Swift. Not you)
2. Kanye West is a doosh (sp)
3. The office is not the place for that kind of expression.
If you’re not Taylor Swift then you shouldn’t be mad. Kanye West is a doosh, but we know that. And if the office isn’t the place for that kind of expression, take the chalk board dry wall down.
But I digress, Kanye’s latest single, “Power”, is essentially his comeback record.
Come back from what you may ask? NPR says it’s a return from “pop oblivion”.
Kanye West, as much as many of us may hate to admit it, has reached a level recognition amongst humanity where nothing short of genocidal tendencies would make him evil to the mass populous of people who stand behind the mad rapper.
He had at least 3 of the most influential albums of the ’00 decade. So, it’s hard to deny Kanye’s place in pop culture, even after Taylorgate.
This is not a comeback record, this is your run-of-the-mill first single from Kanye West.
Compared to past Kanye 1st singles, I’m not excited. But, I do want to hear what he does on his album post-808, so I’m still looking for the release along with the many other G.O.O.D artists slated to drop that day.
In addition to the fact that he continues his branding expertise by following up Graduation with A Good Ass Job. #Genius
No one man should have all that power, and no one single should either, Drake.
