Kanye West took to twitter to respond to Bob Ezrin’s newsletter about his music and #TLOP album. Ezrin goes on to say “West isn’t on the same producing level as Timbaland and Rick Rubin and that his songwriting “is sophomoric at best.”
“Unlike other creators in his genre like Jay-Z, Tupac, Biggie or even M.C. Hammer for that matter, it’s unlikely that we’ll be quoting too many of Kanye’s songs 20 years from now,” Ezrin writes. He didn’t open up new avenues of public discourse like NWA, or introduce the world to a new art form like Grandmaster Flash, or even meaningfully and memorably address social issues through his music like Marshall, Macklemore and Kendrick.” West’s most notable achievements aren’t musical, Ezrin writes. “Instead Kanye’s greatest achievements have been in the form of excessive behavior, egomaniacal tantrums and tasteless grandstanding,” Ezrin writes. “What he is a true artist at is living his life out loud – and shoving it down the throats of the rest of us whether we give a shit or not. He’s like that flasher who interrupts a critical game by running naked across the field. Is that art???” Thoughts???
Last night Kanye attended a party hosted by Yo Gotti at 1OAK he released new music and also spoke on Taylor Swift and Amber Rose watch the video below:
