Kanye West Considers Himself A Poet And Tells Fans Not To Be ‘Brainwashed’ In First Rant Of New Year

Rap-Up: Kanye West kicked off his new year with an all-caps blog entry. He thanked his fans for their support over the past six years and revealed that he’s back in the studio making music, vowing to perfect his craft.
“It’s funny how so many rappers get worse as their careers stretch out, but true poets get better,” he said, citing his latest inspirations. “We will follow in the footsteps of Maya Angelou, Gill Scott-Herron, and Nina Simone.”

Mr. West also cautioned his fans against allowing the “powers that be” to “brainwash” them into believing everything they read. “Let us look past headlines and deal with just a bit of reality in this new decade,” he advised.
