I'm not sure if it would or wouldn't, but it would definitely be the horsefeathers thread

pretty sure that's not what i said

however, the thread for the people who hate kanye so much that they need another thread to avoid any references to him probably has more people with horsefeathers taste than the one with people who like or are otherwise indifferent to kanye

Wouldn't surprise if parts were recorded today also, from what was played at MSG yesterday some of it was recorded in the last week.

Eh; here it's just people griping about him in the music thread. I'm more weirded out like when I see people repeatedly posting bizarrely virulent anti-Kanye things or FB or Twitter or whatever. Like they have this vendetta against this musician like he's their arch-nemesis or something.

I love making fun of things I don't like, but then there's just weirdly going out of your way to not like something. I look at it like the Kardashians; I hear more people railing against them like they're destroying humanity and representing the downfall of America than actually knowing anything about the Kardashians...because it's really easy to mostly ignore the Kardashians.

Because it's mostly only racists who hate him and his horsefeathers "music"?

how many times does one have to listen to music they dont like before deciding they dont like it? i know that album enjoyed massive critical acclaim and that's great and all. i've tried many times though and i horsefeathering hate it.

you can't make me try again david.

Kanye's a sampling genius and if you hate his music you're effectively saying you also hate all the artists he's sampling too: Smokey Robinson, Can, Nina Simone, King Crimson, Aphex Twin, Bon Iver, James Brown and on and on and on

you're basically saying YOU HATE MUSIC

The way people talk about Kanye, good or bad, really just highlights how it's still really horsefeathering weird when white people talk about hip-hop, even though it's horsefeathering 2016.

fair enough. you've listened to it and given it a fair shot and don't like it.

my point of view is kind of (and this is kind of steam of consciousness coming from what tree said) that it's just weird that there is so much vitriol for him personally when his worst crime is saying some crazy off the wall horsefeathers (and he does have a penchant for this, no doubt) and smashing some paparazzi guy's camera (and possibly stealing some khakis from the GAP). being dismissive toward his music is just insane to me. I get it if it's just not someone's cup of tea, but the dude has put out multiple ALBUMS (not songs) that are considered classics in his genre with wide critical acclaim. he mostly produces his own stuff, produces for others, writes his own lyrics, etc. he is objectively hugely talented. some are talking about him like he's horsefeathering chingy or wacka flocka flame or something. he a massively influential artist. saying his stuff doesn't qualify as music just rings to me as though it's coming from a "hip hop/rap isn't music" point of view.

yes, he has controversial (and even dumb) opinions, but so do lots of people that don't seem to get near as much out-of-hand dismissive hate (or, at least, that other people who say they hate kanye would claim to like).

i am on my phone and am not going to take the time to reply to everyone properly right now but bullet points:

ONE david is spot-on

TWO i didn't say white people disliking kanye gave me a squicky feeling, i said white people crowing about how much they dislike him gave me a squicky feeling. if you don't like his music you don't like his music, but going out of your way to shout out how how much you hate the guy is a bad look

THREE that said you better not like eminem if you don't like kanye. probably just don't like eminem either way

Try not to cringe when a white dude tries to explain why Kanye is not a good MC. It's impossible if you have a soul.
