Con-Ye Sells Us Out

‘My Eyes Are Now Wide Open…I Am Distancing Myself From Politics’

Lefties are all aglow … their boy is back on the plantation.

“My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative,” the 41-year-old rapper tweeted Tuesday to his millions of followers

Candace Owens’ statement on the affair

Right before the post, he told his followers that he had “nothing to do with the Blexit t-shirts, referencing a report that surfaced over the weekend about West reportedly being involved with the line of apparel. The term refers to encouraging African-American voters to “exit” the Democratic party, a shortened version of “black exit.”


His line of shoes is floundering

Exclusive: Kanye’s Sudden Political Backtrack Stems from Looming Business Disaster, Fashion Industry Report That He’s “Wacky” and “Edgy” with High “Negative Qualities”
Kanye is about to release three new styles of sneaker through Adidas. His current Yeezy’s aren’t selling. Now it’s Christmas, and he’s got to make his deal with Adidas work.

Second, on November 23rd comes an album postponed from a few weeks ago called “Yandhi.” The prior album, “Ye,” was a bust. “Yandhi” has to actually sell copies. Right now, he’s lost his base in the black audience and most of the white audience. “Ye” sold 60,000 actual copies, 250K all in with streaming. That doesn’t pay for first class trips around the world.

    Perhaps…its one of his other personalities speaking out! 🎃


  2. Okay, I just commented about Kanye on the previous post, then found this one.

    Maybe I’m missing something. How has Kanye sold “us” out?

    This is nothing about Trump, Kanye emphasized. He said his other issues like prison reform yata yata were still important. He wants to back off politically and focus on creativity, he said. Nothing I read suggested this was because he was succumbing to blackshaming or financial pressure.

    But basically, he said, Candace used his Blexit t-shirt design, associating him with the Blexit movement, without his permission. I can see how that would make one sour. So if there’s anyone in this who might be all about the bucks, it looks like Owens.

    Like I said, maybe I’m missing something.

    It works both ways. That restaurant owner who chased Sarah Sanders and family out of her place, then followed her to the next eatery to harass her there also got an earful. She was president of the local business association. The other owners got LOTS of criticism and correctly blamed her.

    Personally, I’d prefer entertainers kept their politics to themselves and just let us either enjoy or ignore them based on how entertaining we find them.

    As frequently demonstrated, without a script (or off-script) most actors and/or entertainers are unable to string together two grunts to form a fart. And when they manage to do so, they actually believe everyone else cares. DiNiro, Streep, Gaga, Dunham, you all listening?
