Kanye West’s Album Is Really Black

December 21, 2007 / Posted by:
In an interview with Spin Magazine, Kanye West is proud of the fact that more black people bought this album than any other he has made. He said that the album is indeed "blacker."
He said, "Way blacker. "Can't Tell Me Nothing" — how hood is that record? "Good Life" is straight Steve Harvey, all day long. "Flashing Lights"? I never had a record that was that black. But it's white at the same time. Certain things are so good it doesn't have to be white or black. That's what Graduation is. Take "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger." It's a white sample, but everything I do to it is to make it as black as possible. So I'ma make the bass as black as possible; I'ma make the lyrics as intense as possible."
The self-proclaimed "pop enigma" went further into the "black-white" thing. He said that he loves to eat black food at Christmas time and doesn't want black credit when he's going to buy a house. When asked what white people food was he said, "White-people food? You know what it is. You never ate fried chicken and said, "This tastes white." It's America. People know the stereotypes. I play to the stereotypes. I believe in the stereotypes. And I submit to them. [Affects a black, Southern accent] "Man, black people sure can cook some chicken! And I'ma get some black chicken."
He goes on and on and on, but I have to stop. This black-white thing's got me craving a black and white cookie. Damn.  
I didn't know Kanye could get even more annoying. We get it Kanye, you're black!
