I may not be a huge fan of Kanye’s music, but his words? That’s a completely different story. His words are like little bits of treasure that spew forth from his mouth whenever he deigns to open it up at us lowly mortals. Somehow, everything he ever says is always the best thing that anyone’s ever said. He’s a powerhouse of wisdom, a fountain of knowledge and truth. In short, he’s glorious.
That’s why I was so pleased when he tweeted some heavy thoughts yesterday. No one can make you think like Kanye can.
Here’s what he had to say:
I usually never tweet questions but I struggle with this so here goes… Is the word BITCH acceptable? To be more specific, is it acceptable for a man to call a woman a bitch even if it’s endearing? Even typing it in question form it’s still feels harsh? Has hip hop conditioned us to accept this word? Do we love this word as much as we love the word N-GGA in an endearing way? correction, Here’s the age old question, would we refer to our mothers as bitches? Would’ we call our fathers n-ggers or better yet N-GGAS? If n-gga is such a positive word, why do we feel so uncomfortable for white people to say it, even with a hall pass? Is it ok to use bitch as long as we put BAD in front of it? Like you a BAD BITCH. Perhaps the words BITCH and N-GGA are now neither positive or negative. They are just potent and it depends on how they are used and by whom?
I was recently questioned about the use of the word BITCH in my music and initially was offended by anyone questioning anything in my music. Stevie Wonder never had to use the word bitch to get his point across. I will admit that I sometimes go back an omit cursing from my records. I like to use profanity as a tool and not a crutch. I’m not tweeting to say what we need and what we don’t… I just wanted to think out loud with you guys today…
Now that all the thought holes in your brain are all plugged up for the day, I guess just go get a juice box and watch Dinosaurs on Netflix or something. And maybe when your mind isn’t so blown, we can try to discuss Kanye’s philosophizing, all right?

That was justified by utter stupidity,:/.. How do you make sense of none sensical ranting?
Personally I prefer ‘Bich’ :~)
He’s nothing but a talentless monkey. He sounds like he talks out of his ass. I’ll criticize his music all day. If he tried to get into a real music conversation with me he wouldn’t stand a chance. He would be confused as soon as I say C major diminished 5th. I could teach ANYONE how to program a one measure beat and hit repeat. No talent hack needs to find a new profession
Kanye West is perfect.
He’s a perfect example of something.
Its not an illegitimate question. No question should be. The reason people dont bring things up anymore or dance around everything is being showcased right here on this website, with the condescending article and sheep like responses. Grow up or shut up, you can disagree all you want, but I wonder if the attitude of this article and the responses that followed would be different if it had been a celebrity this site ass kisses instead of west.
At least he bothered to ask the question, whereas most people don’t bother to address it. Yes, this bitch is crazy. (See what I did there? I called Kanye a bitch). And, yes, he is a drama queen. But he is still infinitely less annoying than Kim Kardashian or Miley Cyrus’ effing haircut.
mind BLOWN. He should take a page out of Jay-Z’s book.
“Here’s the age old question, would we refer to our mothers as bitches?”
I hope I don’t have to grow up or shut up with this opinion but I don’t like hearing bitch or the “n” word in my music, no matter who the so called musician that is using it, sheep like response, I think not, my real long standing opinion.
I completely agree, Webs.
And if I meet that Kanye, he’s going to catch my handbag upside his face.
