“And I’ve got to a point that Michael Jackson did not break down. I have reached the glass ceiling. As a creative person, as a celebrity” – Kanye in an interview with BBC1’s Zane Lowe.
Oh no he didn’t!
Now I don’t claim to be a professional music critic but from where I stand Kanye you’re no where near MJ. Michael Jackson created the sound of a generation, he changed dance and choreography as we knew it, and he basically made the music video a thing. Don’t you just make rap songs?
And here’s another reason I find you completely annoying, you said that about yourself! Yuck. Now if a music critic or someone made that claim about you i would disagree but I would think “okay this person really thinks Kanye has done a lot in his career and respects him”, but it’s hard for me to take this praise seriously when it comes from Kayne himself. I’m not saying Kanye doesn’t make good music or that he hasn’t accomplished a lot in his career I’m simply saying I don’t think he’s surpassed Michael Jackson and the fact that he’s claiming such things makes him sound arrogant. Which we all know he is.
