Apparently my grandmother isn’t the only one who mentions basketball players right after reminding everyone of the days when one particular race was rounded up and sent to labor camps. Because Kanye West performed in London this weekend, and his mind works the same way.
West was performing at the Big Chill music festival Saturday night … when he went on one of his signature rants … this time focusing on the hardships of being so painfully misunderstood
“I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m f**king insane, like I’m Hitler. One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did.”
Moments later, Kanye suggested that he needed to be the MJ of music, “Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It’s so much f**king going on in music right now and somebody has to make a f**king difference.”
I don’t mean to be pedantic but Hitler also used his power to make a difference. So in that sense Jordan and Hitler are very much alike. Also, Jordan moved a lot of shoes, while Hitler moved a lot of Jews. They’re like two sides of the same coin.
