Impressive lyrics like

" I'm a motherfucking monster....."

"Suck My Dick".....

Are really grand and ambitious!

I'll take Karma Police Alex for $200

Typical hip-hop apologist.

Way to miss my point.

It's easy to cherry pick lyrics like that to make your point. Except that it totally ignores the fact that Kanye has penned his fair share of brilliant lyrics.

By all means start the list. I would like to see these brilliant words (not Lyrics as those belong to people who actually sing).

I am sure you have heard the expression :

" One Bad Apple Spoils the Whole Bunch"

Is it possible to cancel out the vile rotten half of an Apple and make it ripe? Or does the vile rotten half overtake the brilliant ripe side of the Apple?

Would you eat that piece of fruit?

This is how I feel about all Rap and Hip-Hop.

Ha! That is hysterical.

Message heard loud and clear. Anyone who criticizes Kanye lyrics is dumb.
