Kanye West's 'Rants'

    It sounds like someone's feeling a little guilty about his own actions lately... Kanye West decided to go on 'public rant' that was actually quite telling, at two London concerts this past week. Kanye begins by speaking about how the media feeds us things to distract us from what's really happening, and how they will label him as 'crazy' and 'deranged' for speaking out. Which in turn, is exactly what they did! (TMZ reported that Kanye West 'dissed Jay-Z's collaboration with Justin Timberlake, then screamed like a baby/lunatic at his next show.') Completely twisting the story around and avoiding all valid statements. It's not surprising, though.
 
    Anyways, Kanye West goes on to repeat throughout the video, "It won't be long now."
     In the second rant, Kanye repeats over and over, "Remind me again why we in this shit" as he speaks about the teaming up of corporations and the industry. "How many bottles of shampoo can we sell with your face on it?" and "Since when was music about the money?"

     Meanwhile, the formation on the backdrop seems to be repeatedly creating the shape of a horned figure..

   
     Now who really knows what the intentions are.. While Kanye may seemingly be 'speaking out', he's also one of the most influential rappers today and could simply be attempting to dis-inform the public, by confusing them into believing that he's against the powers that be.. Which then, in turn, allows us to keep gobbling up the lies that are being fed to us. At the same time, I truly do hope this is a breakthrough for Kanye.
