    I didn't know he is actually bi-polar. It makes sense now, how he is overly confident of what he is saying. But at 11:26 you can see how easy it is to leave him without arguments. I don't care, I just hope people are not really taking him seriously. It seems like he wants to be another John Lennon, but he is not.

    I have heard of many artists that didnt get the proper recognition because of being too ahead of their time. Kanye West is more than a HipHop Artist and a producer. He definitely fights for a lot of causes and the hiphop community can't keep up with his ideas.

    “Express themselves without fear of judgement” AMEN 👌🏼👏🏼👏🏼🙌🏼💗❤️💜 I LOVE KANYE ! REAL RECOGNIZE REAL AND I LOVED HIS SIMULATION about the two year old. GREAT WAY OF THINKING. I wish I could talk to him in person! Kim is very blessed to have this man in her life because I feel like he opens her eyes to everything. I have a fiancé who opened my eyes to everything. I used to be very closed minded but I’m really glad there are people in this world that open other peoples eyes. Without him I feel like I might have been still very closed minded. And Everyone can have their own opinions too I feel like Kanye is all about free thinking and having free thoughts and I feel like he is wondering why PEOPLE HATE ON PEOPLE ABOUT HAVING THEIR OWN OPINIONS AND EXPRESSING THEMSELVES. Why can’t we all just respect people’s thinking and opinions? Where is the love? (Black eyed peas) lol We are all different. I am Hispanic and I support trump tbh. And I felt like what Kanye had said that I “can’t say it out loud” and I felt like people will hate me and judge me but at the end of the day who are they to judge me? No one !!! Only God can judge me -(Tupac )lol so yeah this comment is me expressing myself without fear of judgement.

    Jimmy man, stop trying to bait Ye’ into making negative comments towards our president. Have you not any morals left in you that you constantly have to find ways to encourage divisiveness amongst the people. It’s nice to see men who still upholds their values in the face of adversities, unlike you Jimmy.

    I don’t see how you guys think Kanye is that complicated. Look past the stigma of Kanye and you’ll notice his message. Kanye is fighting for free thought and he’s challenging the conventional social stratosphere.

  • Ferdinand Zebua

    I resisted watching this video for four days. Now that I've watched it I don't regret watching it.
    [do not click; long rant, waste of time to read]
    _I think_ I can see now where he's coming from [with regards to his ideo-political statements & positions etc.] and I appreciate the core call-to-action of embracing love over pride and shunning fear in favor of courage. His condition as self-confessed _and_ as analyzed by 3rd-party mental-health professionals is of course not entirely safe nor ordinary, but on the other hand to the core of it _every one in the world is a little bit crazy_ in one way or another. I think I appreciate what he's trying to do with his music and his fashion design and his artistic endeavors overall. And I didn't know at all that he went to Art/Design school until I watched this very interview. I still _do not_ think he is the "Extraordinary Genius" that _some_ of his most (literally) ardent supporters think he is but he's got some ideas I can get behind.
    Philosophically speaking he's got some good ideas but I still think he has so much more potential. It might be dangerous consider his diagnosed bipolar state but I think he should consider diving into academic philosophy more, and not just western but also eastern, not just northern hemisphere but also southern hemisphere, contrast Greco-Roman to Florentinian Enlightenment and compare it to Buddhist & Zen philosophies, the mystics of the Mediterranean compared to the mystics of unexplored Borneo et cetera. He's already got a lot of his plate (in his mind that is) so I'm not too sure that adding more to it would be a good idea or not but if he's gonna go all out like he's gotta go all out if you know what I'm saying.
    And that's that as far as my opinion goes. I still haven't listened to most (if not all) of his music, I still haven't bought any of his shoes or fashion design, and I still do not plan on putting down money on any of Ye's stuffs. I also still think that Trump should not be allowed to do whatever the hell Trump wants to do, but Trump doesn't and neither do any of us really if you really think about it. And I shouldn't even really care about any of this I'm not even American lol. But I can't deny that all this have touched me in some way and I come out of watching this interview deciding that I am not going to totally shut out Kanye from my mind anymore. And that, to me personally, I consider that progress.

  • MrHo16
    MrHo16 7 hours ago +1

    Kanye brings some very valid points to the forefront in this interview. The ideal that we should encourage individualism and different modes of thought is absolutely true.
    However , what he said about slavery and the way that he promotes contrarianism (promoting an opposite viewpoint simply for the sake of being different) is seen by many intelligent people as off-putting and in many cases completely wrong. We can understand his desire to be different but let us not forget that there are facts and there are falsehoods. One of the things Trump cannot stop doing is promoting falsehoods. From lying about things he's said that have been recorded for the world to see to denying the present crisis of climate change and more, Trump promotes contrarianism too.
    Being a deep and innovative thinker has nothing to do with standing out. It has to do with utilizing knowledge of the past to build something beneficial for the future without sacrificing your good morals.

    What on earth was he waffling on about?

    • alice johnson
      alice johnson 6 hours ago

      This is basically what he is alluding to. Kanye is a very smart guy. There are huge amounts of corruption going on among senior politicians (more democrat mostly) and in Hollywood (sexual assault and pedophilia). These elites are very powerful. These are the people controlling crime like drug and sex trafficking including of children. Think about this logically to run these organisations you need to have politicians paid off and you need to able to run things on an international scale (global organisations and businesses with lots of money already). You cannot run global crime activities as a small local guy. This is also true of the arms trade. How do they logically create demand for weapons and guns? Create overseas conflicts by paying politicans who support war.
      Big business also controls the media. All of these combine to mean that what people see through the media and what people believe is an illusion. Trust in the media is at an all time low because they have been caught lying so many times people can no longer believe them. The Clintons are presented as good people but they raised a billion for Haiti where local politicians have said they haven't seen this money spent in their island, meanwhile they have complained about the sharp rise in children being trafficked by NGOs on the island.
      Smart people like Kanye who mix in elite Hollywood circles are aware of all these things which is why he says its an illusion - what is reported in the media is not what is really happening. Kanye supports Trump because he is cracking down on corruption. That's why the media hate Trump so much because they are complicit in this disinformation campaign (look up the CIA's project mockingbird where the CIA Director said our mission will be complete when everything Americans believe is false).
      To illustrate what I mean 6 weeks ago 3,000 pedophiles were arrested in a few days. Why didn't the media report on this? Like I said elite circles are tied up with child trafficking, media and big business. Kanye knows but his career would be ended if he said these things directly instead of using alluding to it. Google anything I have said if you don't believe it and do your own research.

It's the warped school systems that have eliminated survival skills, auto. shop, welding, carpentry. Kids can't even look at an analog clock and tell what time it is, nor read cursive writing. This is the first time I've heard Kanye sound normal. I have a totally different perspective now.
