Always in the 1st person by Joey-Zero Always in the 1st person by Joey-Zero
This was obviously inspired by my rant a few journals ago about Kanye's overbearing 'confidence' and semi-outrageous claims about his position on the world scale.

I figured it would be hypocritical of me as an artist to say that he should let his art speak for him, and have me blabber on about it. So I decided to do a piece to reflect my opinion. I'm mostly fucking around, and chuckled a little bit when I put that "me" pattern together. Plus I think I nailed the likeness pretty well.

Bottom line: I respect the dude, I love his beats (for the most part) and you have to respect his audacity. His attitude is just a little annoying though, you have to admit.

Here's the journal:

I found the image I used for reference on google, and it says "Junko Kimora", so I think that's where the credit would go for the original pic.

Yeah he's definitely annoying guy but I just love music he creates. And I must admit that he is one of the best artists nowadays.
Nice work ;)

I remember in an interview once, Kanye mentioned h ued to do alot of drawing and anime was his inspiration (Stronger music video, was criticially referenced to the 1988 classic animated film "AKIRA") I wonder if his skills have improved now? I'm just saying, as an artist, I'd be a gay fish as well if I haven't relieved any emotional stress or expressed myself via an outlet, but I do dig his music, respect his person.

This is really awesome. He's a guy people love to hate, but when it comes down to it, he's got real talent

HAHA! As both a Chicagoan- AND a Kanye fan- this one grabs me. I kinda agree tho, even though nowadays, Kanye looks to' up from the flo' up. Just saw him on the cover of Vibe looking like he was posing for his mugshot, yo. Not dope. But yeah- I love this. lol.

He is conceited (damned Geminis!), but I agree, his beats are awesome, though his latest album makes me want to jump off a bridge.

I'm not a huge fan of him either. I've said some shit about him a few journals ago, and I think he's arrogant as fuck-all, but I figured I'd do a piece to say "hey, you're a dick, but you can make decent beats!"

We think the same thing about him. We can say exactly the same thing about Pharell Williams. He started with a fresh concept but now he's just a fuckin clown (that's just my opinion)
