I’ve decided to weigh in on the Kimmel/West story because Kanye was my gateway artist to the rap genre and an inspiration.
Ultimately I’m disappointed in Kimmel because he really didn’t know what he was talking about. Rappers are the rock stars of today and Kanye West is on top. And if Kimmel had actually watched the interview he would have had a much better understanding of West’s frustrations with high fashion. Because of these things I don’t think West’s reaction was totally uncalled for, even though it was a bit much.
