A review of Kanye Wests Glow In The Dark tour has angered the Chicago artist to demand the reviewer to kill yourself!
In the review, which is in Entertainment Weeklys current issue, gave the rapper a B+ for his performance in Seattle and deemed him a nut.
In a response on his blog, West responded by saying, What’s a B+ mean? I’m an extremist. It’s either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, f**k you and the whole f**king staff!!! I know I shouldn’t dignify this with a comment, but the reviewer threw a jab at all the artists.
The Glow In The Dark tour comprises of West, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams and N*E*R*D*, and Lupe Fiasco. Generally, Kanye’s portion of the tour has been applauded for its creative ingenuity.
The review wasnt entirely negative, but reviewer Chris Willman offered his opinions of other artists stating, Pharrell Williams is no great singer and Rihanna needs to ramp up the charisma.Entertainment Weekly is widely regarded as one of the most respected and widely read publications for music, movies, television and other forms of leisure activity. According to magazine.org, the magazine was No. 16 in overall domestic circulation and revenue.
[Editors note: Kill yourself is intense Hip-Hop slang and not usually indicative of actually wanting somebody to commit suicide.]
Below is the entire blog post.
Yo, anybody that’s not a fan; don’t come to my show. For what?! To try to throw yall to cents in? Yall rated my album s##### and now yall come to the show and give it a B+. What’s a B+ mean? I’m an extremist. It’s either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, f### you and the whole f###### staff!!! I know I shouldn’t dignify this with a comment, but the reviewer threw a jab at all the artists. I just wanna know when was the last time you enjoyed yourself. If you can’t have fun and loose yourself at this tour it’s a good chance you’re a very miserable person. I actually feel sorry for you guys. Your job forces you to not have fun anymore. Grab a drink, holla at some nice girls, and party b####!!! You don’t know s### about passion and art. You’ll never gain credibility at this rate. You’re f###### trash! I make art. You can’t rate this. I’m a real person. I’m not a pop star. I don’t care about anything but making great art. Never come 2 one of my shows ever again, you’re not invited and if you see me… BOW!!! This is not pop, it’s pop art! Chris Willman, kill yourself!
