He may be conceited, arrogant and his mouth can go full speed with nothing to no good talk but he’ll always have a fan and admirer in me.
Wait, Did I just use conceited and arrogant separately in one sentence? Yeah, I’m definitely talking about Kanye West.
I think I was in college when I first listen to Gold Digger and add The College Dropout to my playlist. Fast forward to 2018 that I have most of his singles on repeat when I needed to play something good when I’m relaxing, travelling or just needed to start a groove with myself in the shower or when I’m with my friends.
I know all of his songs from The College Dropout to the Life of Pablo.
I recently watched his 8 minute video for Runaway and geez, that was probably one of the best music videos / short films that I’ve ever seen. I did not recognize Selita Ebanks till I look it up on Google and I know I just added another reason to be crushing on Mr. West.
Which leads me to be creating my first #ManCrush post! I’ve created a blog about my Hollywood crushes on my blogspot account ages ago and I know that I needed to have a touch of Kanye on my current blog and share how I see him not just as Kim K’s husband, Taylor Swift’s
then and now arch enemy, the creative mind behind the Yeezy shoes or that loud mouth rapper who did the OST for The Hangover trilogy and created some of the best collaboration with Jay Z, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.
He is a fearless influencer of modern Art and Fashion
He is an artist that is not afraid to break the stereotype of one being well loved, received and respected, but the one who earns the credibility of a talented artist despite the ups and downs of publicity and mainly playing the bad guy in the mainstream scene.
He can run his mouth but there is no doubt the guy is hella talented and has a strong point especially with his crafts.
He is mad about making and expressing his art.
He is a music producer
In 2004, he founded GOOD Music (an abbreviation of Getting Out Our Dreams) that has the following rappers on their roster. Current Artists: Big Sean, Pusha T, Desiigner. It also produced music for Common, Kid Cudi and John Leggend.
He has a good genes for fashion
He collaborated with the following fashion brands NIKE, Louis Vuitton, A.P.C and Adidas on both clothing and footwear and his most notable work is his collaboration with Adidas in 2013 that resulted in Yeezy.
Kanye also launched Yeezy clothing on October 2015 and it showcases ready to wear style from military to flesh toned color clothing.
What I adore is Kanye is married to Kim Kardasian whom I share the same level of admiration and same goes to the entire Kardashian – Jenner. KUWTK is my favorite reality T.V show! I love the fact that they were all supportive of Kanye and the launch of Yeezy Season 3 is one of the dopest fashion shows in the new era.
The way he loves Kim is everything
Them two creates a beautiful family
He is funny, sarcastic and he does not smile. Not just for anyone.
On why he never smiles in public– “Back when I was working on Yeezus,” he tells a reporter at High Snobiety, “I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything. I looked at all these people’s photos, and they look so real, and their outfits were incredible, and they weren’t smiling. People, you know, the paparazzi, always come up to me: ‘Why you not smiling?’ And I think, not smiling makes me smile. When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling because it just wouldn’t look as cool.”
We both love Franz Ferdinand – One of his favorite bands
“He said once in an interview that he prefers finalizing a song in post production more than having sex – Kanye West”
He promotes self love, wellness and inclusion.
He will run as President, 2020.
I can go on with my list of reasons why I adore this guy and see him not just a rap artist but an artist.
Some may not agree with me, but I believe in his vision and how he stays authentic from his indie and mainstream path. He considers any story line to be a form of publicity that help his market, good or bad they are all for public relations. The wider the audience, the better.
He turned out to be a loving husband, father to his family and his music continuously evolves that still does not compromise the audience when he does see fit.
Whatever and however people see Ye’, there is no doubt that he is someone to count on for pure entertainment and one who can go extreme in the name of art and music.
I am a fan for a long time and his music still gets me all the time.
So, let me share my top 5 songs of Kanye West that never fail to put me in the feel good – mood~
This should do it for now. We still have the first quarter of this year to know and learn more about Ye’ that I may still add on this list.
But for now, let us all agree that he taught self love in a whole millennial way.
Yup, that sure is Kanye 🤦🏻♀️❤️
Till the next!
The Moody Mina!
