Ye’ is now a lost-one: Gone Full-MAGA, Co-Signing Trump on a song!

And I’ll never let my son have an ego

He’ll be nice to everyone, wherever we go

I mean I might even make him be Republican

So everybody know he love white people” – Kanye West from the ‘New Day’ off the ‘Watch the Throne’ (Released in 2011).

I really didn’t want to comment on Kanye West, because what is there to say. He swallowed the “red-pill” and taken it so hard. It is hard to say anything else. If it is marketing scheme or pure love of Republican values? Who knows at this point?

I do not know about his brotherly love, I knew he met with Donald Trump on the 13th December 2016 and has continued from there. Who knows what really went down, as he has since then collected memorabilia and become brothers. Whatever that means for Trump who always needs some loyal snooze-buttons to further his agenda. As long as they steal the spotlight or not praising the President’s massive ego. Because that hurts him and then he will throw that person under the bus. Right now Ye is on the Trump-Train. For whatever reason that might be.

However, it is hard to make sense out of it, I had a feeling when he returned to Twitter, and was poetical and trying to mystic. That he had some sort of marketing plan behind it. Not like he would drop a project without any sort of foreplay. That wouldn’t be Ye. He needs the whole machine behind him, the orchestras and the whole company delivering the needs to played on every radio, be on the screens and be in talks of the town.

Now he steering into controversy. That must be because the beat he created to the recent song with T.I. sucked. The beat was boring and pale. It will not turn into fine wine, let me tell you that. It was neither soul or the beats we recognized from the past. Maybe it general laziness or that the controversy supposed to overshadow the quality of the song.

When Ye drops line like this on the ‘Ye Versus the People’, which was released yesterday:

I feel a obligation to show people new ideas

And if you wanna hear ’em, there go two right here

Make America Great Again had a negative reception

I took it, wore it, rocked it, gave it a new direction

Added empathy, care and love and affection

And y’all simply questionin’ my methods” – Kanye West (Ye Versus the People, 27.04.2018).

It is hard to hear these bars, these lines and take it as nothing. Because the man in the past didn’t sound like this. We all change, like I have had a personal political journey with life. But I have my reasons for my changes. Its been from a liberal to more socialist view, because of the visions of benefits for society. I wonder what is his reasoning for rocking it? What did he do, other than the meeting? Did he say to Trump to hire Ben Carson for having a brother inside the Cabinet? Because there aren’t any or much positive political policies for Ye’ kind or African-American Community, either less and harder policies hurting these communities. If it is immigration wise or if it economical. These communities are hit hard, also the suspension of government funded programs and so-on. There aren’t much or anything Trump has done to make better for Ye.

Therefore, I have to take some bars from College Drop-Out that was released on 2004:

Now niggas can’t make it to ballots to choose leadership

But we can make it to Jacob’s and to the dealership

That’s why I hear new music and I just don’t be feelin’ it

Racism’s still alive, they just be concealin’ it” – Kanye West (Never Let Me Down from the College Drop-Out, Released 10.02.2004).

It’s hard to hear the same man praising Trump and his agenda. A man that has no scruples to misuse White Supremacy, Anti-Immigration Slogans and let the state misuse ICE-Agents against own citizens. To get the support and Co-Sign from Ye. That is not easy, that is hard. Especially, when Ye used spit like this. It is hard and weird. No matter what reasons, it is hard. He has changed and Trump gave him a reason to do so, I guess. But at this point in time, the Republican’s are concealing their racism. They are doing it with the Dreamers, Muslim-Ban and everything else they can hit on minorities.

Therefore, it is weird to have Ye on this side of the political spectrum. It is like he is blind, because the President is praising him for his efforts. Taking a cup of tea in the Twinkle Tower in Manhattan and sipping the Kool-Aid. Who knows, but is not intelligent.

Even some bars from the Late Registration:

Went from bein’ a broke man to bein’ a dopeman

To bein’ the President, look there’s hope man

This that inspiration for the Moes and the Folks man

Shorty come and see his momma straight overdosin’” – Kanye West (Crack Music from the Late Registration, 30.08.2005).

I don’t know if he plans to drop inspirational bars like in the future, because he switched to Luxury Rap and self-involved material long time ago. Just like Lil Wayne has to spit about Codein, Sex and Haters. That is just the game for these guys. However, there has been a social conscious side of Ye’, it is still there, but a dramatic shift in topics and defense.

See that’s the problem with this damn nation

All Blacks gotta be Democrats, man, we ain’t made it off the plantation” – Kanye West (Ye Versus the People, 27.04.2018).

It is the narrative that has shifted, the defense of his acts now. Instead of being social conscious, he is now taking a very ordinary defense of Trump. It is like if we don’t like him, we have to be democrats. But that hasn’t been the direct issue, if it was the older conservative party, it would still have cracks, but it would have made more sense. That is why Powell and Rice was in the Bush administration. An Administration Ye’ spoke ill about, which did far less damage to the African-Community, than the current one. Even if the Bush Administration didn’t care much, they didn’t stop vital programs for the inner-cities and the poorest communities, in the same fashion as Trump. So the issues are really something significantly changed within the artist and person, Kanye West. Which wasn’t there in the past.

He is not the guy I used to listen too. Ye is gone full-MAGA. He will soon have talks directly with Tomi Lahren, be on Diamond & Silk, Hannity and whatever else craziness. Maybe even be on Fox & Friends and also InfoWars. Because why not? The hat shouldn’t be enough. If that is all, then it was easy treat from the President, instead of giving Ye something good for the time and energy. He is giving low-cost attribution for the Co-Sign and only one losing Ye. A fair trade for the President, indeed. 

That is a victory for Trump in all of this, he get a Co-Sign and it cost him nothing. Not even 130k pay-off. Just barely minimum and a signature. Better then the rip-offs of Trump University. Ye took and shake his hand, thought he was brilliant and moved to become a supporter. If so. Kudos Ye, your not as socially conscious as I thought you were, your spirit wasn’t as enlighten as I thought. Because, the possibility of getting caught in the world-wind took you and now, you were let astray. Peace.

Cry havoc: Kanye creates more fuzz than actual news!

trumpkanye-1481643069-640x427

This are one of these days where I see more articles about the meeting between President-Elect Donald J. Trump at the Trump Tower with the rapper Kanye West. What should be news that more and more people connected with either Big-Oil like the Standard Oil babies ExxonMobile, grand wizards of the economy, hedge fund infused billionaires and others are packing their offices to find ways of ravaging the faucets and gooses, while the workers are tripping and wonder what they voted in.

The American People been duped by a sales-man with such vigour and bravado that he claimed Hillary Clinton’s connection to the big business and Wall Street; while him two seconds and near the swearing-in are handpicking more Goldman Sachs officials than fish in a barrel.

With this in mind the visit of Kanye West at the Trump Tower is just a suggestion, from the man in 2011 on ‘Watch the Throne’ LP on the song ‘New Day’ wrote:

“And I’ll never let my son have an ego

He’ll be nice to everyone, wherever we go

I mean I might even make him be Republican

So everybody know he love white people”

Therefore, the truth of the matter is that this is not really a thing. If so, this is made-up to undermine the key aspects in the wind. The Goldman, the swamp swirling around the nest and dropping loads of golden eggs for the big business to use.

That the cabinet either filled with the ones that was to be cleared out of Washington D.C. or the populist agenda with men like Jeff Sessions and Stephen Bannon whose despicable worldview can destroy any kind of men has belief in decency left in the American Experience. Therefore, the scenery of this Alt-Right, White Supremacist in power should not overshadow the greedy-guts that are nominees for seriously grand opportunities.

Where bankers, where big industrialist and self-loathing interests combined with the infused tolerance for business over policy can conquer the republic’s works. As the lax-tax and corporate loopholes will be covered into a level where it isn’t a few bigger whole like a Swiss-Cheese, instead more like common water leaks like from pipes connected to the faucets.

The faucet is the sales-man on the top, the President-Elect Trump that gives all the donors of the Republican Party a feast, also the men and woman who can offer something in return; so the nomination is a future-buy in for a coming return on investment. The portfolio is more of government funds and taxes together with the estimated earnings on foreign affairs as the kickbacks through the political funded monies can return to the bankers and the industries that offered their nominees.

So we shouldn’t worry about Kanye is hanging out with the President-Elect, when the view of the man and woman handpicked to secure the coffers, misuse the immigrants as scarecrows for their economic policies to enrich themselves and their top 1 %, while leaving leaves and empty promises behind.

Therefore, American people be proud of you and yours have created! This is what you will become and what that is ahead, the President-Elect is surely going to have a blast and you as the citizen of the grand Republic going to left behind with the bill. Pay it either directly or to the rich-men is coffers or as a benefit for what you already had.

Certainly these noblemen who is handpicked by the Trump isn’t going to let you off the hook easily, they are in to cash-in or they are nominated to departments they back-in the day didn’t believe in like Ben Carson or Rick Perry. However, when they get a government position it’s all smiles and glory, even if they got no clue about the organization or its mission. Because that is not needed, because the President-Elect does not know what he is entitled to do either.

We can grin and wonder why Trump meet with Kanye, other than a publicity stunt of some kind, as the Republican blasted Obama for meeting Common at the White House, but no one is screaming vicious when Trump met with Kanye, since that is just so COOL!

Well, the reality is that the Republican party can stick it, for the pain and suffering they will give their own in the will of little government, little tax and massive army, the taxation policies as well as the prospects of Alt-Right policies to make enemies out of neighbours who are citizens as much the next one. Certainly, the Trump administration got work ahead, not only with themselves, but also with the Republic it will run. Peace.

CNN’s documentary ‘Brother’s keeper’ is a must see for any fan of hip hop.

This is the story of two brothers who has made a careeer on making rap about drug dealing. Then as the greatness of their albums. In 2002 the classic album ‘Lord Willin’, then in 2006 ‘Hell Hath No Fury’ and last album in 2009 ‘Til The Casket Drops’. The group is based on the brothers on Terrence Thornton aka Pusha T and the older brother Gene Thornton aka Malice(now No Malice). The rest is told in this documentary.

 

Mack the more – Grammy’s 2014 (mine kommentar til tragedien)

Ikke ofte gidder jeg å kommentere eller skrive om Grammys eller Oscar utdelinger. De er så betente og politiske at det halve kunne ha vært nok! Idag gjør jeg en liten helomvending. Ikke fordi det er overraskende hvem som vant i de fleste delene av Hip Hop sjangeren på Grammy’s 2014. Det var forventet når du så på de utvalgte låtene og album.

Best Performance – “That’s right, O Kay Kay!”

Jeg er langt fra fan av disse som vant 3 av 4 Grammyer. At Macklemore & Ryan Lewis vant for Beste Performance foran Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Swimming Pool’ er uforståelig. Ikke minst også låtene Eminem’s ‘Bezerk’ som viser råheten til Em, produksjon av Rick Rubin og gjennomtenkthet med inspirasjon fra Beastie Boys! Uforståelig, at Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ‘Thrift Shop’ blir ansett som en bedre låt! Det er bare helt banalt. ‘Thrift Shop’ har sin greie og den slo sabla godt an, men alle vet at det var bedre ifjor? Til å med de som tildelte prisen vet dette innerst inne.

Beste Rap-låt: “Fuck You Pay Me”

At Macklemore & Ryan Lewis vant over disse sangene er også uforståelig. Coup d’etat er det blitt! Drake ble som også i forrige Beste Perfomance nominert med ‘Started from the Bottom’. Ikke at jeg er fan av Drake heller, selv denne låten synes jeg faktisk er god! Den viser talentet til Drake. En annen låt som laget til Asap Rocky – ‘Fucking Problems’ som også er med 2Chainz, Drake og Kendrick Lamar. Denne låten er også slagferdig og en god radiolåt. Den var også utslagsgivnde igjennom for Asap Rocky! Jay-Z ‘Holy Grail’ og Kanye West ‘ New Slaves’ var også nominert. Disse viser bare enda mer hvor feil det var å gi Grammyen til Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ‘Thrift Shop’.

Beste Rap-Album: “Lost Ones”

Her er den siste og mest tragiske som skjedde på Grammy’s 2014 at Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – ‘The Heist’vant for beste Rap-Album! Noe så tragisk. Tragikomisk. Urovekkende og helt feil! Drake var også nominert her med albumet: ‘Nothing Was The Same’. Som var bedre album enn debuten. Så fortjent kunne dette ha vært og det mer enn Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Drake var bare ikke hvit nok, selv om han var tidligere en skuespiller fra Toronto. Jay-Z med ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ måtte også falle, dette er mer forståelig. Hadde ikke forventet dette albumet på listen. Derimot så forventet jeg at Kanye West og ‘Yeezus’ skulle være der! Ikke at jeg kjøpte albummet, men at det var spesielt for musikkåret 2013. Det var den definitivt. Det mest sjokkerende var at Kendrick Lamar og ‘Good Kid M.A.A.D City’ – GKMC er en klassiker. Er sikker på at sammenligne album om ti år vil Kendricks debut album på TDE/Aftermath/Interscope med Dr.Dre bak spakene. Det er helt utrolig at dette albumet ikke vant en Grammy!

Unnlatte album og låter: “Forgot about Dre”. 

At J.Cole både album ‘Born Sinner’ og låtene ‘Crooked Smile’ ft TLC og ‘Power Trip’ ft Miguel. Burde ha vært med på de tre listene. Pusha T en del av Clipse som gav ut sin første solo skulle lett ha overskygget flere av de nominerte album – dette med tanke på hvor bra albumet ‘My Name Is My Name’. Låtene ‘Sweet Serenade’ ft Chris Brown og ’30 Acres’ ft The Dream. Skulle let vært med på nominasjonslisten til Grammy! Bubba Sparxx kom ut med nytt album i året som var ‘Pain Management’. Der han gikk tilbake til røttene, men med independent realese istedenfor stort plateselskap ble utgivelsen forbi i stillhet. Selv om den selvskreven for min del. Også Cory Mo sitt album ‘Take it or Leave it’ burde ha vært med og låten ‘Hold up’. Chamillionaire med ‘Reignfall’ burde ha vært blant låtene som skulle ha vært nominert. Kanskje også sammen med DJ Khaled sin låt – ‘Never Surrender’. Talib Kweli’s album ‘Gravitas’ burde også heller gjemmes vekk. Man kan vel ikke forvente annet.

Takk for meg. Peace.

Anbefaler: J. Cole – ‘Born Sinner’

Etter å ha likt mixtapene ‘The Come-Up’ og ‘The Warm-Up’. Så kom første albumet ‘Cole World – Sideline Story’. Som var hans første på plateselskapet til Jay-Z, som er Roc Nation og er i samarbeid med konsert selskapet Live Nation. Dette hip hop albumet ble utsatt fordi den ikke hadde en god radio hit før ‘Workout’ kom ut. En låt som Nas ikke likte. Derfor har det nå på neste albumet(Born Sinner) kommet en låt som heter ‘Let Nas Down’, som er super kul. Dessuten blir man ikke lei låtene, selv etter flere gjennom lyttinger på vei til jobb eller heim. Første singelen ‘Power Trip’ med Miguel. Er en skikkelig slager som er passende for radioen og hyggelig å høre på.

Vel, jeg kunne skrevet mange pene ord. Ufattelige pene ord. Men de ville ha vært min subjektive mening om albumet. De ville ikke spilt noen rolle. Det som betyr noe at du bør du streame albummet eller sjekke det ut. Til slutt skaffe dette. Dette albummet har vært så rå bra for min del at jeg ikke har brydd meg om Kanye West og hans ‘Yeesy’. Første album siden ‘808&Heartbreak’. Fordi jeg trenger ikke lytte til dette når man har et gjennomført og behagelig komponert sanger. For å vise hva han er god til hør på denne:

Når du har hørt denne. Så kan man tenke seg om. Deretter må jeg også bare vise deg denne også:

Da har du kanskje hørt på 3 låter fra ett album som er enten 19 lang eller 21 om du skaffer deg delux edition. Så da bør du forstå at dette albummet er vært å få tak i! Kos deg.

Sleezy og billig.

Hvor lavt skal man synke og få oss til å le av en musikkvideo. Dette er nesten som booty Wave fra Onion News Network(ONN). Desverre er denne musikkvideoen fra Cash Money/Young Money/Universial Records. Altså fra en av de største aktørene innen musikk som er der ute. Nesten som om Roc Nation eller Atlantic Records slipper:

«En vasete sannshetssøkende fengende sexfisert musikkvideo med politisk krittikk av samtiden».

Når det skjer(før 2014, please!), kan da noen ringe meg eller i det minste sende meg en mail! Uansett, denne musikkvideoen er redigert og mekket Hype Williams. Siste store musikkvideo var «All of the lights» av Kanye West. Noe som var en spesiell video med litt stil. Nå virker det bare som han har tatt det beste fra Big Sean’s «Dance» og mikset litt “Booty Wave” inni suppa av musikkvideo. Hvor ble det av Mobb Deep ft Nas «It’s mine»? Hvor du ser smooth filmatisering og rå rap tekster samtidig! Er det for mye å be om? Må alt bli så sleezy og billig. Ikke minst hvor mange ad-libs skal en rapper få lov til å presse ut av kjeften før noen reagerer? Ja Nicki, du er ikke Young Jeezy.

Nicki Minaj tok av med første albumet, det neste er på vei(Roman Reloaded). Denne singelen viser dette. Selv om det er forferdelig sak, så må jeg vise den. Fordi jeg har allerede kritisert den! Noe annet ville være unaturlig. Samtidig som jeg legger til de andre videoene under. Hvis du har tid til å se dem alle. Skjønner du sikkert greia. Ikke? Da ønsker jeg lykke til og håper du stemmer FRP(mohahahaha). Peace.

Nicki Minaj – Stupid Hoe:

Før alle videoene som er nevnt så kommer først Booty Wave. U dig?

Booty Wave:

Nå du har sett den jeg sammeligner med Stupid Hoe. Her er resten!

Kanye West – All of the Lights:

Big Sean ft Nicki Minaj – Dance:

Mobb Deep ft Nas – It’s Mine:

 

PS: Synd å se at Hype Williams har solgt seg helt ut. Nå er det vente på Mr.Boomtown videoer. Peace, yet again!

Bun B ft Drake – Put it Down:

En parodi som er bedre enn orginalen.

Det er av å til at man kan si at parodien er bedre enn orginalen. Har eksempler slik som Top Gun med Tom Cruise VS Hot Shots med Charlie Sheen. Må også ta i denne sammenhengen Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves med Kevin Costner Vs Robin Hood: Men in Tights med Carey Elwes. Dette er jo fordi humoren og parodien er morsom uten at du har sett orginalen, men for de av oss som har sett orginalen å husker deler av dette, vil ta parodien.

I denne omgang skal jeg ta en parodi og ekte musikkvideo. Ikke ” Weird Al” Yankovic som har gjort dette til en karriere. Der den nyeste(fra Weid Al Yankovic) er parodien av Chamillionare’s «Ridin’»  og parodien heter «White and Nerdy». Rykte om noe Lady Gaga, men har ikke sett eller hørt an. Uansett, skal ta en parodi laget av Affion Crockett som har vært en del av SNL(Saturday Night Live) og har kopiert DMX, Jay-Z og Kanye West, å tatt de på kornet.

Denne gangen parodiere han en av hovedartistene i Young Money/Cash Money – Drizzy Drake. Som har just slippet sitt andre album med singelen «Headlines». Her er forøvrig den:

(Husk det som skal parodieres er både videoen og teksten!)

Han har jo både måten han gjør ting som kan blir gjort narr av. Lil Duval som er en komiker(noe du skjønner) og  er en del av Grand Hustle/Atlantic. Har dedikert denne til Drake:

Vel hvis ikke det var humor nok, her er den deiligste og nydeligste parodien på lenge. Klarte ikke å holde meg seriøs når jeg så den, så se an:

Vel, god helg og ha en hyggelig adventstid. Peace.
