Kanye West

BEING A RAPPER IS DANGEROUS

... Just Like a Police Officer

First Tom Cruise, now Kanye West is comparing his profession to BEING AT WAR ... saying just like soldiers and cops, HE PUTS HIS LIFE ON THE LINE when he goes to work.

Yeezus made the statements to Saturday Night Online this weekend, saying rapping is very dangerous work -- "This is like being a police officer or something ... or like war or something."

"You're literally going out to do your job every day knowing that something could happen to you."

But Kanye says it's not JUST the physical risks (he says he could slip on the stage) ... KW also risks getting his feelings hurt -- because people could watch a show and decide they don't like him.

Yeah, just like a cop or a soldier.

Far from me to wish someone to die. But someone who is arrogant, self-serving, tool box and he doesn't get killed in a wreck. And then you have Paul Walker who donated time and money to millions of people and he has to die... What is wrong with this picture.

By no way am I agreeing with him.. But if being a rappers so easy why don't you do it. I'm not gonna try to explain the music industry to you just know it's not what it seems most rappers aren't millionaires & more than half are in debt.

What Kanye is trying to say, is that because he knows he has a lot of haters he fears for his life. He's not saying that he is more important than police or soldiers.

I think what he is doing is making a comparison to his life and what happened to Tupac. That for haters every time he steps out he could be a target for a mad hater.

He isn't the only black artist that lives in fear and believes that the Illuminati exist. As for all the crap that he says rather that go down that "thug" path he expresses himself in a different way.

I was blown up and wounded in Vietnam and almost died. How dare he compare what he does to what we did? He has body guards around him to protect him and we had no one, but our selves and our brothers to cover each others asses. **** him and the limo he came on.

Yeah Being a Rapper is Real Dangerous.

Kangay be talking about all the STD's Ray-J gave Kim from that dirty Back-Door Sex Tape they made. And now Kim gave Kangay the same STD's. Ray-J Waxed Dat Axe.

Being a Rapper is dangerous if you choose a woman who will do anyone.

Kim certainly does not care if her men are attractive, never did. All she wants is more money and now she has the Insurance Policy
to head South.

If he keeps blowing hot air like this, those venues he raps at won't be half empty, they will be completely empty!
