Lmao!!!! He chose to put on and sashay around in the kilt, so deal with the consequences. While the photo above may seen totally innocent rapper Kanye West has reportedly ordered all photos of his appearance at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert in New York City stricken from Getty Images’ photo wires – for reasons unknown.
The image, which was posted in a style story about Yeezy’s head-turning fashion statement, has drawn some gay rumors from a rapper named Lord Jamar, who targets West’s “queer” style in his hugely homophobic new song, Lift Up Your Skirt. Jamar, whose lyrics include the line “Black man lookin’ half a f-g,” has said that West is contributing to the feminization of the black man in hip-hop culture. “It’s not just jabs at Kanye West,” Jamar told SOHH.com. “It’s anybody promoting the feminization — of the Black man in hip-hop culture. … We’re not Irish. We’re not Europeans. Rocking kilts and all that is just another excuse to introduce that skirt style. … This has nothing to do with sexuality, who they choose to be with and all that, I’m not even talking about that. I’m talking specifically about, what is hip-hop? And that’s not hip-hop. Rocking dresses with mean faces, that’s not hip-hop.”What is hip-hop is machismo, which may be why West has demanded that the skirt photos be pulled: Rap is an aggressive man’s game, though that might mean Kanye might be better off sticking to his guns and standing by the skirt. And besides: the rapper wore a skirt throughout his Watch the Throne tour with Jay-Z, so while his call for the photos to be removed might have nothing to do with Jamar’s bigoted call-out, the timing is nonetheless suspect. The fact that Kanye thought he could pull a skirt off like he was a tall, lean, European male model for Mason Margiela just baffles me. He looked like a douche bag.. Lol
