Sidebar: “If I don’t win, the awards show loses credibility” – Kanye West at the MTV EMAs, November 2006.
<NationalReport> So far 2013 has not been kind to rapper Kanye West. The Grammy Award-winning rapper is reported to be “checked into the Heartbreak Hotel” after word got out that his alleged “secret” love affair with the dashing “openly gay” Givenchy fashion designer Riccardo Tisci, ended abruptly after Tisci recently dumped the foul mouthed egotistical rapper.
With Kim Kardashian’s baby shower scheduled just 10 days from now, getting the news of Kanye’s clandestine meetings with Tisci to enjoy hot pounding fecal-fetish sex on the eve of the celebration of the birth of her and Kayne’s supposed love child couldn’t have come at a worse time.
According to Jacky Jasper, Hollywood Street King and music insider West and Tisci have been dating since 2011, revealing the relationship as the reason behind Kanye’s “Nigga’s in Paris” extended stay in Europe.
Jasper states… “Riccardo was the designer for Kanye’s first tour. He and Kanye were hard core butt buddies since they first met.” Riccardo reportedly got tired of Kanye’s charades, and claims he is happily dating a new young hunky model these days.
What does a narcissistic man with a deep rooted God Complex do when his over inflated ego continually writes checks the wannabe gangster rapper can’t cash? The biggest reason Kanye has failed to find his niche in the music industry is because his music is not genuine. Kanye has about as much credibility as a wannabe white wigger rapper from the suburbs.
Clearly West’s passion for ghetto rap dominates much of his music, but without gangster street cred his music is just pathetic.
Though his parents divorced when West was three years-old both were successful and West was raised in an upper middle-class environment attending Polaris High School in suburban Oak Lawn, Illinois.
Enjoying a life of privilege, at 10 years-old Kanye and his mother Dr. Donda West, a Professor of English at Clark Atlanta University, and the Chair of the English Department at Chicago State University, moved to Nanjing, China, where his mother was teaching at Nanjing University as part of an exchange program.
It was a tough break for Kanye to be born of respectable and educated parents. To be able to travel at a young age and experience other people and their culture. To live in quiet and safe neighborhoods with good schools; never knowing the want of food, water, ammunition or other necessities.
West’s fate to be the black child who beat the odds of being born in an American ghetto to a crack addicted mother and whose father is uncertain would by most standards be seen as a blessing. But for a man whose soul soars when hearing and performing gangster rap having been born of an affluent family, living in respectable neighborhoods and attending excellent schools was an unholy curse.
Now that Kanye has been outed as a raging cross-dressing queen whatever chance he had to sell his persona as a gangster street rapper is over. Many in the music industry believe Kayne’s vision of being a rap artist has ruined him, but cite if he changed his genre to show tunes, or Broadway hits he may still have a future in the music industry.
