It seems as though that nowadays Kanye West is a moving target and the subject of many people’s ridicules and scorn. But do you think this all matters to him? Probably not. Kanye West has acknowledged the fact that he is well aware that people judge him for things he’s done in the past. He has become well-known for his outspoken views on certain subjects and it’s not exactly what he is saying, it’s HOW he says it. But let’s not forget though…there is a reason why he is in his position of influence. As we think back and remember when Jay-z dropped his classic ‘Blueprint’ album, Kanye West was the architect of that project. If it wasn’t for hits like ‘Takeover’ and ‘Heart of the City’, Hov’s masterpiece of an album may not have come about. And how could we forget about Kanye’s debut album The College dropout which brought us so many unforgettable classic tracks such as ‘Jesus Walks’, ‘All Falls Down’, & ‘Slow Jamz’ just to name a few. So you start to wonder how this all ties in to the late, great legendary James Brown. That’s a simple one! Just as Kanye is viewed now, at the height of his career James Brown was a multi-talented artist, as well as, an extremely complex individual. When you take a look back at Brown’s historic career, you’d see that his run-ins with the law, his thought-provoking lyrics and the energy he put into his live performances clearly put him into a category of his own. So before we start to get ahead of ourselves and go on a bashing spree towards Kanye, let us put this all into perspective. Kanye is musically nothing short of genius. His sense of fashion and way with words are indeed unique to go along with that. Last but not least, when Yeezy is on that stage, he brings a memorable performance every time. So watch the attached videos below and see for yourself that Kanye is not a bad person, just a little misunderstood… and all this is reminiscent of one of the greatest performers of all time… Mr. James Brown!
