Kanye West did a one hour gig at Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim Upfront event last night, and say word, Mr. Kardashian previewed some new songs from his forthcoming album. One song, presumably called “Awesome,” sees Ye returning to the-previously-declared-dead Auto-Tune.
And just like the lord giveth, the lord also subjects you to his freestyle rants. It’s the pesky paparazzi that catches Yeezus’ ire this time.
“I ain’t no muthafuckin celebrity… There’s one thing about me, I’m a terrible, terrible terrible celebrity. I don’t know if you really know there’s one thing about me but I’m the worst kind of, the worst kind of celebrity. All I do is make real music. All I do is sit in the studio and make real shit. And that’s it. And that’s muthafuckin it. That’s muthafuckin it!
“So I don’t want no people runnin’ up on me with cameras, trying to like sell pictures and shit to magazines, asking me dumbass questions, throwin’ me off my focus and shit. Harrasin’ you all muthafuckin day. I ain’t no muthafuckin celebrity.”
And if you were hoping for some funny SNL skits from Kanye, guess again. Ye’s “goddamn life” isn’t a “muthafuckin’ joke!”
“It’s so funny. Somebody asked me, ‘when you do SNL, are you going to do a skit about the paparazzi and shit. And like humanize yourself? I ain’t hear to apologize to no muthafuckas man. It ain’t about me humanizing myself. At one point did I become un-human where I had to turn myself back. Or maybe I was demonized, or maybe I was treated inhumane and not human in that type of situation. I ain’t no muthafuckin celebrity. I ain’t runnin’ for office. I ain’t kissin’ nobody’s muthafuckin babies. I drop your baby and you muthafuckain sue me and shit. I’m trying to make some music that inspires people to be the best that they can be. And I don’t want nobody else to ask anything of me! Don’t ask nothing else of me.
“Muthafuckas chasin you down, about to make you crash and shit. And all they want is for a nigga to laugh and shit. Hell nah, I ain’t doin no muthafuckin SNL skits. This is my Goddamn life. This ain’t no muthafuckin joke.”
Ye’s SNL appearance might end up being his second most uncomfortable and awkward TV appearance since the infamous “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” incident. Either way, we’re tuning in May 18th!
