Kanye West Says His Music's Profound & Addresses Profanity Complaints

Kanye West says he is on a mission with his music.

Kanye West, whose Yeezus album became available for free on GooglePlay yesterday (December 26), recently spoke about his attention to detail when crafting lyrics. 

"[My lyrics] are already studied with a magnifying glass," West said in an interview with rickeysmileymorningshow.com. "I don't think there's a person who dissects their lyrics more than me.

"This is a mission that I'm on," West continued. "I was on 'Ellen,' and she was like 'It's cursin' here.' I think it's more profane to have an album with no profanity that's not talkin' about nothin' than to be as profound with profanity." 

West said that his comment regarding the matter was impressive. 

"I mean, it was cold because it was an alliteration also," West says. "The p-r-o and then the f and everything. It was too cold. Too fresh." 

An alliteration is "the use of words that begin with the same sound near one another," as per merriam-webster.com.

Kanye West appeared on "Ellen" earlier this year and premiered "Bound 2," a selection off Yeezus, on the television talk showYeezus was a runner-up for HipHopDX's Album Of The Year, ending behind Run The Jewels' self-titled debut album.

    I've never heard of anyone surprising themselves with how awesome they are all the time. Does he brush his teeth and then think to himself "Holy shit...aint nobody else brushing their teeth like I'm brushing mine. It's pure genius that I brush my teeth counter clockwise and I've been doing it like that since day 1 but I just didnt realize it! Goddamn I am amazing!"

    Gucci Mane realest rapper outthere: - this nigga throws bitches out his car - shoot niggas dead - beat niggas up. Gucci aint no fantasy nigga like: - mobb deep, - nas escobar lol nigga only had a ticket for parking his car wrong - 2pac never gangbanged - rick ross

  • LEON

    That was pretty dope. haha...

  • Really?!!?

    I like how you cite the definition of alliteration for your dumb readers...

  • Gucci The ROAT

    Gucci mane is the blueprint of a real nigga and heres why GUCCI MANE is the realest rapper and heres why. 1) all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. 2) Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. 3)Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. 4)Nas raps about how he is a queens thug but he wasn't. 5)Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. 6)When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. GUCCI MANE KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!

      It's really an accomplishment for you to be able to type all that out with Gucci Mane's chode shoved so far down your throat. It's a wonder you can see the computer screen around his belly.

      If you say something smart or profound, there is still no need to gaz yourself over it, it still makes you look like a douche. Profound people don't run around trying to convince people about how clever they are. Now Have a nice day and eat a dick "lil nigga". And don't bother answering thanks.

      Well, actually, it isn't 'right after something was said'. I'm pretty sure he said that shit on Ellen back in November, more than a month ago, so you point falls apart. Furthermore, he was bringing it back up to prove a point about his "mission". Now shut the fuck and gon about your business, lil nigga. Let the grown ups talk.

      I ve never commented on anything I ve just said like it was some next level shit No. Especially with something as trivial as Kanye's "alliteration". Bigging up yourself right after saying something just makes you look like a douchebag. Do you understand now or should I go on ? Have a nice day.
