Just to preface, I do not own any of Kanye's albums, and am, in general, not a big rap fan. And, Kanye, is exactly the reason I don't like it. Maybe he can rap, but on SNL he tried to sing.
Embarrassing is probably the word I would use. Or...off key. Terrible really.
I don't understand how he got so big. To me, he's completely unbelievable. I don't trust the words, I don't believe they are from his heart. I hear them and see his "act" on stage. I think it's all from his head. I can see him trying to create emotional moments but deep down, I just don't believe it.
I'm really diggin' Jay-Z and Coldplay's mix up, Viva la Hova, so maybe there's a chance I'll find some rap worth listening to, but this "no gucci to buy, no louis viutton to put on, no YSL..." crap is just "heartless".
