Earlier today, Kim Kardashian-West announced the name of her baby boy: Saint West. Not too surprising, however, considering how the family has a penchant for shock, awe, and religious labels. This is just another foul against the religious the community…or is it?
Once again, ghetto style is cool everywhere besides the ghetto. Designer Jean Ratatouille apparently had a grand old idea to name one of his “looks”, in his APC clothing line, after the Jay-z and Kanye West song entitled, “Niggas in Paris”. He actually changed it a little, adding “Last Niggas in Paris”. (Please note that I did not replace any letters in the word “nigga” with any asterisks because I am black, I do not need permission, or a pass, to say/write the word “nigga”in its entirety.)
I will always be a fan of Kanye, I think he has every right to be as cocky as he is. He is a talented rapper and a very creative producer, I just think the album title is ridiculous. Not because it’s so close to “Jesus”, but because nobody gives themselves a fan themed nickname. I think it’s hilarious when Beyonce Stans (myself included) refer to her as “Beysus”, but the fact that Kanye coined himself “Yeezus”, thats priceless. Or should I say Priyeezus.Nope, doesn’t work with everything.
I think the album is pretty good, still not better than his first or his second, but I think Black Skinhead is an amazing song, Blood On The Leaves is brilliant (I could do without all the auto tune though) , and New Slaves nails consumerism. I don’t work for rolling stone, so that’s all you’re getting from me about this album. Good day to you sir.
