Kanye West’s latest album release shows that we are still anti-Kanye, but what are the lessons that can be learned from him?
Kanye West has become a lighting rod in recent memory, both for his artistic inclinations as well as for his views on societal issues. Although he continues to march to the beat of his own drum, the combination of his musical choices and his opinions has often sparked debate and created controversy, with everyone weighing in on everything from his blackness to his sanity.
As the video series reconvenes, I am joined by my buddy and new contributor to the platform, Dade Diner-o-g, to discuss the reaction to Kanye West’s Jesus is King album as well as why there seems to be such hostile and negative commentary around him. We also discuss the possible root cause(s) to the negativity and whether there is value inherent in Kanye’s rhetoric so long as people are willing to listen before jumping to criticism.
