WHY MTV WON, AND WHY Y’ALL LOST

Other people are saying that it was all entertainment and think it was scripted. Myself, I think Kanye is easily the most entertaining and polarizing figure in music right now, hands down. He is to this generation of hip-hop listeners and press what KRS-ONE was to the generation before that; a figure so immensely talented, yet so willing to say and do bizarre ass shit all the time based on whatever their ego was feeling that day. They’re not driven by money, or fame, or any of that shit; Kanye West, just like KRS is pretty much about whatever satisfies his ever-growing ego. But that’s another topic that I’m sure is up to debate.
