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.  

#delusional.

Smh, this dude has serious talent and he's smart, very smart, but he seems to have forgotten that he's a rapper. His new motto appears to be Any attn is good attn. Which is NOT the case, he should get back to the music and eff the rest of the BS.

How disgusting is Kanye? The fact he compares his job to a soldier or police officer makes him look like a complete idiot! As a soldier our salaries do not justify to the amount of danger we put ourselves in everyday, and for Kanye to compare his million dollar show and the fact he may or may not slip on stage seriously pisses me off. Kanye seriously needs to follow a soldier for day in Afghanistan then come back to make his rediculous comments. I am so embarassed for him because of who he thinks he is.

Luckily, no one has taken anything he says seriously in quite some time anyways. Just attention-seeking ramblings :)

Dude, anything could happen to anyone when they step outside the house; but its nothing the like risks soldiers and police officers take. Do they have personal bodyguards following themselves and their families 24/7??!! No, they don't Mr. West! You are delusional, egotistical fool and don't deserve the air and press time you get!
