    wow this is exactly what Michael Jackson did when he wanted attention or had a new album out. Every other day he was in the news doing something. Always staying on people's mind worst than any internet news feed. It's all about publicity and it smells like Kris Jenners doing. Well played. well played, indeed. "Lets use his illness or say he has a mental disorder to get more publicity just like Kim got with her sex tape! Wow

    Kanye drops his most aspiring and greatest albums when he’s going through it with life or is under pressure, back in the early 2000’s no one wanted to sign Kanye and he got in a car accident that almost killed him and he gave us The college dropout, after the success of dropout, no one thought Kanye could top it with another classic album and that it was only a one time thing, then he gave us Late Registration, in 2005 50 cent was the biggest rapper in the world, no one believed Kanye could outsell him, guess what Kanye did? He outsold 50 and gave us Graduation, after the death of his mother and the break up with his fiancΓ©, Kanye gave us the legendary 808’s and heartbreak, which is the blueprint that all rappers today use, after interrupting Taylor in vmas and the world shunning him for it, even oboma called him a jack ass lmao Kanye gave us arguably the best hip hop album of all time My beautiful Dark twisted fantasy.
    After the world finally accepted Kanye back, he gave us the mediocre and outdated album watch the throne with jay z, after the commercial success of WTT and his engagement with Kim K he gave us another mediocre album cruel summer with his label g.o.o.d music, Kanye was finally happy again, but TOO happy, he had nothing to be mad or sad about, so he said fuck it, ima be a rich person mad at corporations, then he gave us his not so commercially successful album to date Yeezus ( I personally love Yeezus, it’s in my top 3 kanye albums but I can see why it didn’t do so good in sales and why it had no radio play and why people hated it)
    Then after songs like I am a god and black skin heads, people labeled Kanye as crazy and has lost his touch with the fans. Kanye said fuck it and pursued fashion, and his Yeezy brand became a success and everything was going his way, and so he gave us the mediocre The life of Pablo ( again I love Pablo, but like everyone else I disliked it at first but it really grew on to me) 2018 Kanye wears the MAGA hat and is buddies with Trump and the hip hop community turns their backs on him and is ridiculed non stop by his peers and β€œfriends”, and so he gave us the personal Ye and kids see ghost, what I’m trying to say is when Kanye is at his most vulnerable and it seems like the world is against him, he drops the greatest shit in the planet, so I see all these shenanigans surrounding him as fuel for him to make a masterpiece..
    If you read all this pls subscribe lol it really took a decade

    He isn't incoherent. You people are just too stupid to follow. And also most people want him to be mentally ill cause it better suits their reality. Only reason cause they are worthless failures compared to who Kanye is, so it is easier for them to make up a reality where he is crazy. Fact is that's the sole defintion of crazy - making up a reality for yourself which is easier to cope with. Don't @ me /endthread
