I want to start this letter by saying I am a huge fan. I love your music and think it has been very instrumental in the shaping of modern music as we know it today. I also don’t think you are a bad person at all. But Jesus Christ Kanye, you make it hard to be a fan.
This week was the closest I’ve been to ending our relationship. I didn’t stop loving you, and I’ll explain why later, but let’s focus on why I almost did.
This whole thing started when you dropped a snippet of a new song on twitter, with a release date of Nov. 29. Now this was big news because while you had announced your new album, “Yandhi”, before, this was the first tangible proof of it actually being real. It was also speculated that you would be performing new songs at your SNL performance, because the last time you performed for them, it was to promote your album The Life of Pablo. All of this had people including me very excited. Then the show started and you almost ruined it all.
Your first performance was literally the worst thing that I have ever seen. You and Lil Pump performed “I Love It”, and it was so, so bad. The singing in general was horrendous, you didn’t even sing parts of the song, and you were dressed up in the goofiest looking outfits I have ever seen, you as a sparkling water bottle, Pump dressed as still water. To be honest, the whole thing made me love you more because it was so freaking dumb, but you still hadn’t dropped the album, so I was starting to feel anxious.
The next song performed was new, pretty good, and had an okay message. It wasn’t anything special, but it wasn’t anything awful either. So nice job there. At the end of the show, you were allowed a special third performance. Even though it was an older song, “Ghost Town”, it still felt like you were going to drop the album.
Sadly, halfway through NBC cut you off and I had to watch the rest of the performance on Kim’s Instagram. It seemed pretty good, but then you took the mic and cut the music. I had to hop over to Chris Rock’s instagram to catch this, because Kim smartly stopped filming.
You took the opportunity to start spewing nonsense about free thinking and how supporting Trump is a smart, wise decision and a whole bunch of other stupid stuff. It made me mad because not only did you not give me the album you promised, but you also made a huge a** of yourself, and then the next day you topped it all in incredible fashion.
Instead of releasing the album a day late, you posted a picture of yourself in a “Make America Great Again” hat, stating that it represented unification of the nation, and you called for the abolishment of the 13th amendment. Before we dive into the absolute stupidity of the second part, lets focus on the MAGA hat.
This hat does not, in anyway, represent the “unification” of the country. It represents the opposite and will be forever seen as a dark and stupid part of our country’s history.
Now that being said, let’s tackle this whole 13th amendment thing. Kanye, no. The 13th Amendment is the amendment that abolished slavery. Abolishing that amendment is an absolute no go, you hair brained idiot.
Now, if you had said amend instead of abolish, we would be okay. The law still states that imprisoned individuals can be used for slavery, which I think is kind of immoral and archaic, but no, we aren’t talking about that because you said abolish.
You literally are calling for slavery to be reinstituted. You dumb, misinformed, brainwashed parrot boy.
I don’t know if you can ever recover from this Kanye. This whole Trump thing is going way too far, and you need someone to tell you to stop right now before you somehow make it worse. At the very least, you need to retract your brainless, stupid 13th amendment statement.
I hope you can fix all of this, but until then I cannot and will not support you and one more thing, I am not going to call you ye, you moron.
Sincerely, ya boi, Kolby.
