Let me start off by saying that I sympathize with Kanye. I want there to be a counter-balance, of sorts, because I feel sorry for him. Supposedly a musical genius… and other people besides himself actually seem to think so.
His music’s not for me, but when it comes to me and music, I like the generic crap I grew up with, and happened to hear on the radio countless times. I’ve no understanding of music, and the nuance that goes into it.
Now, the dude says he’s Bipolar. That may explain some things. I don’t think he’s “stupid”, but definitely not a ‘great thinker’. He’s also narcissistic, of course. I just think his brain isn’t fast enough to to formulate an understanding of certain things, and since he’s constantly talking, he’s just spewing out a lot of nonsensical stuff.
I don’t know.
Also, I’m sure his upbringing had to do with it. I understand him and his mother were close and she probably… like, praised him too much or praised him too little.
