Why would anyone sign a petition against our dear old Kanye? This entreaty which spawned from the webs of 38degrees.org, an organization good at running petitions against things they find repulsive (such as the idea of a grammy-award winner doing a cover of his mentor’s song).
Led by darken raul himself, Peter Piranha. David Bowie would be glad Kanye deemed him worthy of a cover. They both share a love for creativity.
‘I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.’ – David Bowie
‘I have no interest in working with anyone who is too important or too good or too traditional to take a call at 3am.’ – Kanye West
The speculation which began in the carcass of a tabloid called daily star, stated a source from Kanye’s camp as saying,
“Some are straightforward covers with Kanye actually singing. On others he is rapping with his own lyrics over Bowie’s music,”
Following reports of claims on the internet, the idea of the Grammy winner doing a cover for some of Bowie’s hit singles seems seedy for some, while for others, it’s plain ol’hating. A rep from Kanye’s camp reportedly spoke to TMZ about the fakeness of the story. ”Kanye has no intention to do a cover or any cover or even touch any of Bowie’s songs in anyway, shape or form.”
Still, that didn’t stop over twenty-thousand people from turning on their wi-fi or data to post some very supportive as well as vile comments.
One fan said, respect his music and the comeback was harsh. A commenter responded, what music, That’s funny – you said that almost like you think he knows what music is. Nothing in his catalog suggests that he has a fucking clue. What he does “make,” is the ignorant rambling of Illiterate ghetto trash.
When Kanye was defined as a good rapper, the fan commented, “good” and rapper” are mutually exclusive terms – they’re actually diametrically opposed – there is no such thing as good illiterate ghetto trash babbling. . . it’s all just. . . the ignorant babbling of illiterate ghetto trash. When did being a lowlife hoodrat become something to aspire to rather than something to be overcome?
Daniel said, Many other musicians I could be fine with. It’s not the music we are against, it is the individual who only wants to further promote himself. And there is nothing of Bowie’s I want to here coming out of that POS’s mouth. If that makes me, and I’m sure many others who feel the same, ignorant and thick, then so be it!
A columnist with Bocar la doza stated. Releasing or not releasing a David Bowie tribute album, Kanye West still’s a talentless douchecanoe, the worst thing to happen to music and an insult. Harsh!
In Kanye’s defense, vibes stated,
There is no Kanye West: Tribute to David Bowie album. It never existed, ever, even as a twinkle in someone’s eye. In a statement to TMZ earlier this morning, a representative for Yeezy rubbished The Daily Star’s claims. Yet even before Kanye’s team responded, there was no tribute album.
An “anonymous source from The Daily Star” is essentially a warning that what you’re about to read is one gigantic lie.
According to independent,
David Bowie liked hip-hop, specifically West’s latest collaborator, Kendrick Lamar
“For his new album ★, “we were listening to a lot of Kendrick Lamar,” his long-serving producer Tony Visconti told Rolling Stone.
We love Kanye too.
