Kanye West Blasts MediaTakeOut, Says His Music Is "Perfect"

Kanye West says that the site is "so fuckin' full of shit."

During one of two performances this past weekend at Atlantic City, New Jersey's Revel, Kanye West took a break from his show to put MediaTakeOut on blast. The notoriously outspoken rapper said that the site, which often reports on his personal life, is "fuckin' full of shit" and that they try to make everything negative.

"If you have something to give the world, a lot of times, the press just tries to take everything negative. Just look at MediaTakeOut, they so fuckin’ full of shit. Show your motherfuckin’ face so I can smack the shit out of you! Making up shit every day," he ranted. "I am flawed as a human being. I am flawed as a person. As a man, I am flawed. But my music is perfect! This is the best you gon’ get ladies and gentlemen in this lifetime, I’m sorry. You go back to Beethoven and shit, but as far as this lifetime though, this is all you got."

    Why does kanye west always have to say some dumb shit. I truely believe Kanye makes the best rap music these days. not the best lyrisct by any means but his last 2 albums were definatley fire anyone who disagrees is basing there opinion on the man not the music.

    kanye is very talented no doubt, but his music is by no means "perfect". has he ever heard his album he made called 808s and heartbreaks? my point exactly. I just wish he wasnt such a douch bag.

    • nickrazor2000

      Oh Khyle, you poor little thing. I think you may be a chick so i will take it easy on you, but he sang the whole album in auto tune, it was an epic fail. you obviously have horrible taste in music, sorry babe

    Its ok for Kanye to be like this cause what musician, producer, athelete or any profession where you are competitive does not think like this. If you dont think youre the best then you wont be sucessful. Media takeout blast people everyday and Kanye should expect hate of the business he is in.

  • Anonymous

    He said his music is perfect, but he never said in who's opinion. That could be his own and he'd be entitled to it. If his music is her perception of perfection, so be it. Everyone is quick to jump on his ego and call him an asshole, but he lives his life, does as he wants and makes the music he must be happy with. Why can't people understand and respect that?

    Fuck this fag. I want to punch him in the face so bad and I would pay money to fight him. He is too full of himself, what part of u is perfect u fag? U are not in top 50rappers of all time maybe top 20 producers of all time. Gtfoh out here u bitch ass nigga

    this nigga is like the first dude to take that site seriously, what a puss. he just gave them more traffic. Also MTO is owned by WSHH, so now worldstar won't put up his videos.


    Kanye's right and MTO commenters are 100 times worst than DX commenters. It's all a bunch of losers that make a comment then follow it up with "Follow Me on Twitter!"

    I'd rather go deaf then hear this weirdo rap, and he hasnt made a halfway decent beat since "Late Registration", far from perfect IMO But keep telling yourself that Kanye, positive re-enforcement and all

    I cant wait until mto gets sued by someone for all the fake bullshit they make up. Kanye is a great composer with his production but i wouldnt say hes perfect and he doesnt write a lot of lyrics. He didnt write jesus walks just to name a hit he has but hes one of the best producers in the business.

  • Anonymous

    His Music really is perfect from a technical standpoint tho. Ask any composer that does classical music to analyze MBDTF and they will tell you that Yeezy did everything right. Every note is on point. Thats EXTREMELY RARE in music today. NON EXISTENT in Hip-Hop. Most of the shit you hear on the radio has no basis in actual music theory but Kanye's material does. He said it in an asshole way but if you look past that you can understand where he's coming from. He puts in work behind them boards.

    Anyone who says Kanye is in the top ten anything knows little about the lineages of emcees and producers, many of whom Kanye will never, ever be greater than. Kanye has a place but that place isn't at the top.

    • Dick B

      I know I'm not the person you are directing your argument towards, but I wouldn't have Kanye in my top ten rappers or producers either (not saying that it's wrong for someone to have him in their lists though because musical opinion is usually subjective). I think Kanye West is a very inconsistent rapper, he can be pretty good at times and seemingly heart spoken, but he doesn't surpass the greats before him or even some of the ones in his own time - because when you put him head to head with others he isn't quite there. He just doesn't match up to someone like Jay-Z (in his prime) or so called legends like 2Pac. Now in terms of production, that's up to more debate. I can understand if you just happen to like a certain producer's production style more than the next. He's accumulated a pretty decently sized discography in this area, but nothing's that groundbreaking or very original. In fact, he's gotten lots of help on his productions. To me, he's shown he can be a very good artist, but he has fallen off lately and I don't feel he's better than Pete Rock or J Dilla, ect.

    • Anonymous

      Why not? Because there is some secret rule that prevents new artist from surpassing old artist even if the new artist outclasses the old artist in every way? From quality, to acclaim, to consistency, to success and accomplishment? Why cant Kanye be top ten anything? I know plenty about Hip-Hop's history and I would easily throw Kanye into the top 5 of either category. Thats just based off of facts alone. Explain your logic. Unless of course it isn't logic and your comment was based off of close minded ideology.

      @jay kanye is a cold ass producer but to say his raps is up at the top is crazy. Did you know Kanye doesnt write a lot of his lyrics? He has a lot of ghost writers and he actually buys peoples whole songs. He bought Jesus Walks from Rhymefest.

  • Jacc

    I might be retarted or whatever, but I never liked Kanye.

  • jerryl

    Honestly Kanye you used to have perfect music. Like every beat you made from 01-07 was incredible. Be, College dropout, Late Reg, Gradation, the Blueprint ones, and every feature. It was unique. The sampling was incredible. The new stuff though? Its not amazing. ITs still good for todays music...but the old beats and songs were better. This way by Dilated people? Slow Jamz? That shit was amazing

    • jerryl

      I heard MBDTF. I think it was good...but it wasnt the old Kanye production. I understand musically it took more talent..because it wasnt as much of samples as it was insturments....but I still think theold stuff was better

    • Dick B

      I completely agree with you other than the fact that no music can be considered perfect because it's all subjective and everyone has their own tastes/opinions.

    LOL@ Kanye's ego. I didn't think it was this big. He is not a top ten rapper, nor is he a top ten producer.

  • gm

    yo epinz how u gna say he aint produce classic stuff? most of common's BE album was him and that whole album was classic, not to mention stuff hes produced for jay including the majority of the blueprint and other stuff thats hes done for mos def and talib

    • epinz

      be was produced by dilla..kanye produced a track, the intro, imo the best song on the album...im talkin bout a full album. not just one or two songs, even three. phaell did all of "hell hath no fury" and dre did all of "dogystyle" just as examples. pretty much, he hast produced a full body of work for someone else that could be considered "classic". not the bullshit nggz pass off as classic today, but all time. his own shit yea, everybody else?!?! not so much

  • JM

    LMAO. Kanye is so arrogant, but I 100% agree with him on MTO. That site is bullshit, ful of ignorance. Almost as bad as WSHH.

  • Hip Hop Fan

    I use to be a huge Kanye fan but these days he is so big headed and his ego has clouded his ability to make hits that people can relate to. Seriously, his new track Mercy is typical mainstream and materialistic bs. I hope this dude goes back to making hits like he did on his first three albums but I doubt he will. Kanye finally sold out.

  • epinz

    ok, how is kanye the best producer when he hasnt produced a full classic fo anyone else outside himself?!?!?! rza, pete rock, dj premier, dr dre, the neptunes, shit, even just blaze has produced a classic from top too bottom for another artist...dr dre is the best of all times.."strait outta compton", " no one can do it better", "nggz4life", "easy does it", "the chronic","dog food", "doggystyle", "the firm", "chronic 2001", "slim shady lp", "the mashall mathers lp"," grodt", "the documentary".....name another ngga with that kinda impact. and he won producer of the year in 2000. not hip hop producer, "the producer of all music". aint no produncer even comin close to impacting the game like dre did/does....my personal favorite is pete rock, but dre is the undisputed greatest hip hop producer of all time

    • Anonymous

      No Dre has a co-producer but in the early days he never Diddy does have a team.

    • grinchoi

      He didnt produce all of those. He has a production team that does most of the actual production. Dre is the executive producer just like Puffy is and overlooks the project. He produced the old shit but none of that new shit you named

      @ dwag huh?!?!?!?! who told u he didint?!?!?!

    • Dick B

      I disagree that those albums are better than 99% of the rappers out today's stuff, it's basically on the same level. To me Kanye has fallen off, he's lost his trademark style(s) I think. And MBDTF didn't appeal to me, I don't care if it is critically acclaimed. It seemed to me he was being very pretentious and coming off like that project was suppose to change the way we think about music. I'm not a fan of hip pop, which is what that album was.

    • blaw

      @Dick B. MBDTF is a critically acclaimed album and known as one of the best in our time so i don't know what you're talking about there. 808 and WTT weren't as powerful as his first three but still better than 99% of what rappers put out today.

    • Dick B

      @Jay - No, he's not. WTT and 808's are garbage albums (in my opinion), I didn't particularly care for MBDTF either. But anyway if you were to compare Kanye's discography (including productions) to Nas' discography, I'd definitely take Nas any day.

    • Jay

      Kanye is more consistent than Nas.

  • bennmetht

    not that this matters but I am white, and love his music so not all whites hate on him...I found evry album he has done to be pretty fuckin good compared to what else was released in that year including 808's....his produceing is amzing and his lyrics are better then most for sure...and for the record he never says he was beetoven

    • @blastoff

      at the end of the day whose really producing? whose really writing? NO ONE

    • Blastoff

      All of you goons talking about production need to read the liner notes. Kanye doesn't do have the work on his albums. He hires expert producers and musicians to orchestrate for him. You might like the music but this dude stop being the producer after Dropout and hired people who know how to make it bang. It's the Dre recipe.... hire people to do it for you and take all the credit. Do your research dum dums.

  • SDK


  • amchri3

    I know most people will disagree but honestly there are not too many artist whose catalog is better or just as good as Kanye West's catalog. He may not be the best lyrical rapper in the game, but he is the best artist. I mean seriously Late Registration, College Dropout, MBDTF, and Graduation are some of the best hip-hop albums from the generation Y (If you don't know what generation y is google it.) time period.

  • dkhsdf

    bruh you aint in the same breath with beethoven he could actual play an instrument and read music so he wasnt as limited as sample driven modern day producers are. music with words also is more classic the things you refer to in yours wont be important forever. i dont know if your music will last as long as his. i agree media take out is full of shit but your sound has grown so much and you keep trying to out do yourself to the point where it sounds to cluttered. like the sound i cant stop great sample but why the extra pattern at the end. it didnt make it enjoyable to listen to.
