Kanye West’s Latest Rant Takes A Turn For The Happy (Video)
We’ll post the video when it hits the internet (UPDATE: Video is added below), but last night, Kanye West performed a set at this year’s Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas; as expected, the Chicago emcee/producer got on in a new “rant”…this time, it seems that he’s a lot more positive. It began after his live rendition of ‘Runaway’:
This is the part that gets me in trouble… Everybody has a right to their own opinion, so why do I get in trouble for speaking mine? It just makes me feel like the media doesn’t want anybody to express no real motherf—ing opinions.
I think I’m just lazy… When you have to put up some kind of facade, you have to think a lot about what the lie is. F— that, I’d just rather tell the truth. But the media wants you to think I’m a bad guy. Like bad in the same way as people who kill other people.
Y’all just have to understand how happy I am right now in all actuality… I’m just happy to see my daughter’s first smile and how happy I am to see my beautiful wife, who is here with me, and we’re going to celebrate her birthday again at Tao tonight.
As you can see from the excerpts, it wasn’t the typical stream of what-the-hell-is-he-saying consciousness that folks have some to expect from Mr. West (ex. Wireless Festival)…on the contrary, all he wants to do is inspire. He even provided the audience with warmth when the subject matter turned to his family.
The best part: he finished his speech in under 10 minutes!
