‘True Poet’ Kanye West Blogs About His New Music

Now, folks, just because it’s a new year doesn’t mean Kanye West won’t be lobbing more OOC zingers at the masses via his blog. Why, just this morning the Grammy-nominated rapper posted a new entry—in all caps, naturally— where he compared himself to “true poets” like Maya Angelou, Gill Scott Heron and Nina Simone, while pointing out that “so many rappers get worse as their careers stretch out.” (But not Kanye!)

Oh, yeah—somewhere in there was the info that he’s working on his next set of tunes, with “the same dedication that Kobe has on the court.” Mind you, that sort of got eclipsed by his rant about telling us to “look down upon those who masquerade as truth tellers and objective fact givers.”

Why Kanye and Courtney Love haven’t teamed up and opened a joint Twitter account at this point is beyond us. Sift through Kanye’s full blog post below the jump.

For those who need their Kanye fix sooner rather than later, his VH1 Storytellers live album will be released tomorrow.
