Kanye West Actually Should Throw a Fit at the Grammys This Year - Jack Hamilton - Entertainment - The Atlantic
"This is fan-effin-tastic." is what I said on Twitter about this article last night as I was traveling back to South Bend from Chicago.
"Hip-hop is an art form invented by a politically and economically ravaged underclass (which, by the way, remains pretty goddamned ravaged) that's risen to become the most globally significant cultural movement of the post-Cold War era. It is the living definition of what music, on its very best of days, is able to do, and if that's not deserving of prestige, we might loudly ask: What the hell is?" is what Jack Hamilton said in this article. It's just one of the many things that he says very right about an artist that deserves a little less hate and a little more recognition.
