I love his song "Gold Digger", but I am not black so I have to sing to myself when no one else is around. At least that what my girlfriend tells me.

Good luck to him.

Kanye is ugly as hell, uneducated, and a nasty black mf. He thinks bc he has money, it makes him speciall, but he is still dirty trash. Talkin shit about women and blaming actions of his own ignorant race on the president! Whenever he talks, its all hatred, stereotypical stuff that has no validity. I'm sure the girl he's marrying IS a gold digger because he has a wretched disposition, nasty face, and an ignorant mind.

A very smart guy-one of the world's best hip hop artist, very smart. I dont have anythng negative to say ab out Kanya West. I just wonder if Alexis is the girl he talks about in his song from his debut album saying "She coundlt afford a car so she named her daughter Alexis" The hip hop community doesnt give an articulate tell the truth on your on terms artist very often.

Tuscon please accept my apology on the behalf of okkkk who wrote in a very confrontational response to what you said. I am African American and am ashamed by how confrontational and ready to fight and argue my race is. So sorry that okkk took your light hearted comment and tried to beat you with it.

Okkk grow up, stop being so defensive and hoping to tell someone off which makes you fall into stereotypes.

First off its nobody's business what he think she is, he obviously loves her and want to marry her so just let it be. Kanye isnt one of my favorites but i listen and buy his records, and that aint got nothing to do with anyones race, he has good music, I like it, and all yah haters just mad, if it has that type of effect on you how about you put an album out and see how many people relate to it and buy it, dont knock his hustle....Kanye doing his thing.......And his comment he mad about the president, I have only one objection, its not just black people he dont care about its poor people. WHAT HAS HE DONE FOR US LATELY.....
