Kanye Admits He Can’t Rap

kanyeezy.jpg 

From his interview in the March issue of Playboy:

"I’m nowhere near as good as Jay-Z, Eminem or Nas. So I compensate … with star power, sheer energy, entertainment, videos, really good outfits and overwhelmingly, ridiculously dope tracks. Justin Timberlake isn’t the best singer, but he’s a true star, the entire package. The main thing I use to make up for my lack of rapping skills is my content, my subject matter." 

He ain’t lying. I remember when I couldn’t stand this guy, but damn if he’s not entertaining.

    If he writes the stuff he recites I’ll say he’s definately nice though. I dont know, he’s a good songwriter at the least even if he doesn’t have the most clever punchlines or analogies, the total package is good, just like certain rappers cant turn good lyricism into good songs/albums, kanye’s the opposite (though I wouldn’t say he’s a bad rapper at all). I still listen to the things that come out his mouth he’s no Jay Z or Nas though I agree with him on that.

  2. distinkt Says:

    I’m glad he admitted it. Most people like 50, lil wayne, etc., still think they’re hot, when they’re just entertainers now. Kanye sees that if it’s funny or controversial it will sell better than a Sadat X album about the real life problems of the ghetto or something with an actual focus.

    I wish more people read that article. Then again, they would probably take it as him being humble.

  3. reign check Says:

    Kanye’s whining about an Album of the Year Grammy was just a conquest for press
    But there was no album of the year award to be won by Mr. West
    He had to settle for Rap Album of the Year at best

    U2 treaded softly, treating the Grammy Awards as just another night
    Yet Kanye acted like if he didn’t win an award he would lose his life
    But why act so ignorant and so much like a fool and cause so much strife

    No one is questioning Kanye’s talent and lyrical wit
    But God doesn’t like His children taking advantage of His blessings, and He will put you down quick

    Music is not about winning a Grammy
    Your work shall speak for itself
    If Kanye is a true genius
    Then why is he still trying to convince himself

    Kanye is a good musician but his mouth too often gets in his way
    His fans are gonna soon get tired of his temper tantrums
    At least that’s what I “Heard Em Say”

    and why is dude trying to pull that quincy jones era MJ look and shit? what a fucking joke.

  5. thekid10705 Says:

    Word up Ye’, I’m with you on that one….I can’t front though I’m a fan..It’s wierd, I wouldn’t put him in same category that I consider “hip hop” but he’s on his own shit and he’s going for his..So I can’t knock him but I don’t think he had to come out and say that..Maybe he’s a bit insecure with all the hype..Who know’s?…

  6. e dubbs Says:

    I dont think he is saying “he cant rap” but he is admitting that he knows he’s not one of hiphops elite lyricists. I do think he is one of hiphops elite artists overall when you consider his music, performance abilities and video’s. He’s one of the few artists that actually keep me interested.

  7. cbrizzle AKA 80'S BABY Says:

    YE’ I FEEL U DOG. BUT WOW U FUCKING THE GAME UP TO SEND A POSITIVE MESSAGE AND BE DATING A WHITE GIRL (AS THE RUMORS SAY) I GUESS I AM OLD SCHOOL. BUT THE CAT DEFINITLY CALLS FOR ATTENTION. WHATS BETTER THAN THAT. BUT DONT FRONT U KNOW HIS CRAZY ASS INFLUENCED AT LEAST ONE OF YOUR OUTFITS

  8. KingML Says:

    Cant rap, cant dress, cant shave his chest, next thing he wont be able to get rid of hepatitis.

  9. G Off Says:

    Kanye can be one of the most egotistical artists out there, but you can always tell that he has a lot of insecurities that he is compensating for and sometimes he will amaze you with the level of honesty that he can bring to the game.

    Not every basketball player has to pretend they are the best in the NBA to feel good about themselves or be successful, it’s a concept that is unique to hip-hop.

    I just hope people remember statements like this when they accuse him of being arrogant.

  10. click click Says:

    Im not gonna lie, his beats are fire. But his style is like a fruity Micheal Jackson.

  11. luis' little sibling Says:

    >> I’m glad he admitted it. Most people like 50

    wtf nigga? 50 cent is a lyricist, get yo facts straight. former underground master who is now enjoying crossover success. dude is a leader, a conquerer, a hiphop living legend, the epitomy of the word “hiphop”. yall niggas just haters! haters! haters! haters! acting like bitches. yall dreaming yall could have half of his charisma, TALENT, power, money, fanbase, endorsements and respect.

    GGGGGGGG UNIT!

  12. luis' little sibling Says:

    and kanye doing his thing. but don’t diss 50 cent cause yall insecure and shit. jealous bitches! jealousy is a motherfukka.

    in the words of fat joe : J.O.S.E. (Jealous Ones Still Envy)!

    GGGGGGGGG UNIT!

  13. Demiks Says:

    I’ve been saying this since College Dropout, except so many people wanted to disagree. Nobody wanted to remember when Rhymefest was mad at Kanye for not giving him writing credits, they all blocked it out. Now that he said it himself, case closed.

  14. Honey Says:

    Um…Kanye has a black girlfriend…where are you all come from with the Pammy Anderson rumors…didn’t you guys see Kanye and Brooke at the Grammys….

    I LOVE Kanye ….Rhymefest and Kanye did their thing..but correct me if I’m wrong, Rhymefest hasn’t gone aluminum yet has he? But it appears Rhymefest and Kanye are cool, I mean Kanye did Rhymefest’s first single from his album.

    I gotta big up creativity….being from the South, I got mad love for creative artist in the vein of Oukast and Dungeon Family…I big up the Bay area and their Hyphy movement too E-40 is one of the best in the game..underrated…

    Kanye is witty ..his persona is something he created as an entertainer…its no worse than 50 cents a**hole persona…..I’m really tired of hearing 50 talk about getting shot 9 times (yawn)..

    When is Shyne coming home…I’m ready to hear something from that kid? Ditto for Jay, Kanye…Fabulous (now that he’s on Def Jam)…whats up with Budden??

  15. cant touch dis Says:

    KANYE IS A FAGIT

  16. Spell Check Says:

    >> KANYE IS A FAGIT

  17. joecritic Says:

    this guy is so fake talks about black guys who gets with white girls when they get rich then ge gets with a white girl yea this guys good and he needs to come out the closet cause he knows hes gay

  18. FactMan Says:

    He is NOT with a WHITE girl. Pam Anderson rumors were around because she was in his new video…The dude has a black girlfriend named brooke. Here is a photo: http://www.concreteloop.com/archives/2006/02/grammy_arrival_pics.html

  19. HOLLYHOOD (FUTURE AFTERMATH ARTIST) Says:

    HE JUST WANTS SOMEBODY 2 FEEL SORRY 4 HIM. BECAUSE OF HIS LIL “STOP AND GO” INCIDENT (THE CAR CRASH). HA

  20. MaddenMaster Says:

    Damn I been away too long… At least Kanye Honest and I seriously don’t think he’s that bad……….. He’s just fucking gay!

  21. mo Says:

  22. Laughin@yaniggas!!! Says:

    Damn, how this nigga get Corny QUICK AS HELL?!! Damn, I guess he got us tooo souped and now were tired of him? Oh well, —and he is not with Pam, well he was for the but thats about all I KNOW of!!!Actually, Im MORE ANGRY at the VIDEO!!!-He swore he was doing some TOP OF THE LINE SHIT-! WaCK WACK! I liked his First video, Thru the wire, it was straight up real! Real scenes, with the crack heads, family, chillin wit his peps, and etc! And it was probably his cheapest video! HE IS TOO MUCH! He need to bring it down a couple noches..

  23. Laughin@yaniggas!!! Says:

    Oh -and he CANT RAP, at least to me!!! His BEATS ARE FIRE, the same fire he gon feel when he is told he got Hep B lolololoooooooo-im jus f’in with him!! gotdam-loloolooo

  24. EGOCASTER » KANYE ADMITS HE CANT RAP Says:

    […]  I wonder why this guy has a career in the music biz, but I cant hate. Right? Courtesy of Nah Right No Comments » […]

  25. babyG Says:

    one of the most recent real things he’s said. He’s so ridiculous though with the whole I’m the greates shit. at least here he’s sounding somewhat less-high.

    Also I have to agree with what he said but the fact that producers can now make their own beat, release bull shit and sell it as “the new wave” makes them the biggest threat of all. I blame people like jlo and other who always have to have a slash behind their name… you can’t really be a jack of all trades and expect to be any good at any of them? They all really need to relax with the mad hunger for fame… the sad part is the shit actually works!

  27. DP Says:

    At some point, folk are going to realize that Kanye is constantly on the hustle. He has attention deficit disorder in that he has a constant need for attention. No one who knows hip-hop should be able to deny that College Dropout and then Late Registration both raised the bar for what Hip-hop can be musically. There are perhaps 10-12 hip hop artists in HISTORY…living OR dead who can shine OVER a Kanye track. Kanye is slightly above average….say..somewhere between Fabolous on the low end and Ludacris on the high end, in terms of word play. Where he SHINES is in his willingness to attack subject matter out of the norm.

    Kanye is a business, man. He pulls these stunts…does these videos…says these things because he is a man with behind the scenes talent who lives to be on stage. Knowing this, he constantly does things to make you look. Like all children who need attention…the moment we start ignoring him…will be the moment he will sit his attention starved ass down somewhere and just do what he does best….

  28. eskay Says:

    >>somewhere between Fabolous on the low end and Ludacris on the high end

    woah woah, hold up Fab on the low end? Fab is waaay better lyrically then Luda, no? I love Luda and all but his wordplay can’t fuck with Fab. and let’s not even mention him in the same paragraph as Kanye.

  29. Laughin@yaniggas!!! Says:

    The big debate should be “WHY DA FUC THIS NIGGA GOT ON a “Coming to America” jacket on w/ the white unbuttoned shirt sticking out at the ends looking crumbled as hell!!! DAts the debate, should I PITY DA FOOL

  30. Laughin@yaniggas!!! Says:

    lol @ DP with the diagnosis of ADD he need to add the H for Attention Deficiet Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) hahahahh!! Getcha Doctor phil…dat nigga is Too AMPED!! I dont think anybody can Sleep on that nigga’s BEATS!! But somebody else is gon take his shine away, while he running around STILL tryna prove something, which I’m not quite sure of!

    Example for emphasis:

    I realized the nigga had a mental problem when i saw him on BET rap city w/ dat nigga J-whoever hosts it, was interviewing him. YO, Kanye went on one of his “I REALLY GOTTA SAY THIS SHIT>> talkfest about old school hip hop…yall know” so J-wuteva, was tryna cut him off cus they had to play videos and go to commercial and shit..Tell me why, Kanye went WILD>>>
    This nigga was like “YO, Stop cuttin me off, this is important”..then he started talking to the guys in the background who be making hand movements to hurry up, and he was like “Yeah, and You in the back, all that hand motioning is really messing me up, its annoying, just let me say wut I gotta say”

    I mean it was Funny as hell and I thought they would never play Kanye again! lol…-He aint really have nuttin to say like I predicted-
    Basically,He is too ahead of himself..

    ummmh are you serious with that comment????? i mean honestly i agreed with damn near everything else you said but god damn if thats not one of the most off the wall remarks ive ever heard, you are seriously gonna say a) kanye is better than fab lyrically????? shit he shouldnt even be mentioned in the same breath as f-a-b-o or ludacris if your talking about WORDPLAY. kanye is an ILL PRODUCER and he writes some enteraining interseting raps but they are not impressive lyrically at all, i am completely baffled that someone could honestly say kanye is a better lyricist than fab. and i dont even check for fab or luda and i do like kanyes music better but thats just cause of his beats and guest appearances but he cant even come close to those dudes lyrically

  32. Takeitoutside Says:

  40. Down South Enlightenment Says:

    yall buyin that bull-ish? cant u see he just makin another statement so that he stays in the spotlight. but damnit if he aint speakin the truth ha ha ha. nigga is consumed with gettin attention. thats what he wants. and that outfit that he was rockin at the grammys has got to be a halloween costume that his designer gave to him as a joke and forgot to tell him. and he was serious bout it too. the gloves were over the top. why couldnt he be classy and just do what nelly jay-z thing. they were conservative. he was just whack….but thats what makes him an entertainer. aint that some -ish…..lol

  41. Equality Cipher Says:

    “I compensate … with star power, sheer energy, entertainment, videos, really good outfits and overwhelmingly, ridiculously dope tracks.”

    “The main thing I use to make up for my lack of rapping skills is my content, my subject matter.”

    Isn’t this the same thing MC Hammer use to say?

    “Kanye is slightly above average….say..somewhere between Fabolous on the low end and Ludacris on the high end, in terms of word play”

    Jesus Fuckin’ Christ, Kanye West is no where near above average, what are you listening to? Fabolous, Ludacris (has his moments), are slightly below average rappers.

    Canibus, Chief Kamachi, Black Thought, Jay, JAZ O, Pharaoh Monch, Eminem, Nas, AZ, Mos, Common, fuckin’ GZA, Rae & Ghost, Rakim, G Rap, are above average rappers.

    Kanye is an above average producer, but he has no lyrics. Shit, Lupe Fiasco has more spit than Kanye. I’m not saying I don’t enjoy Kanye’s music from time to time but let’s not get fuckin’ ridiculous, slightly above average, please.

  42. HOLLYHOOD (AN AFTERMATH ARTIST) Says:

    SHUT UP BITCH!

  43. posta child Says:

    Kanye is not the best. He does have flow though. Plus, he is handling business behind the scenes also.

    Luis needs his dumb ass banned. Everything is not about .50 . He is a show. No more talented than the Backstreet Boys. So thing. He won’t be winning any battles. The only people he impresses is 13 year olds or those who act like them. He lacks real talent. Fact. He lacks character. Fact. He lacks awareness. Fact. Like those who on his dick like vice grips 4 no real reason except they are in love with the image that has been sold to sell his cds that are more useful as coasters for drinks.
