Ok I respect Kanye for some of the work he did on Late Registration......but the shit he's saying is makin him look like a fuckin lunatic...look at this:
As Kanye West gets ready to drop Late Registration on the masses, the emcee/producer took the time to let MTV know that he is much more than just your average producer or rapper. He is in fact an activist.
"I didn't set out to be an activist," he said to MTV. "I was born into it. My grandfather drove the first car in [some civil rights] marches [in the 1960s]. My grandfather said, 'We goin' in and we finnin' to sit down over here.' Like I said on the first album, my mother got arrested at 6 years old for the sit-ins.”
"My father was a former Black Panther," he added. "Now he's converted his life and he's a counselor. He's at a bunch of different jobs where his main goal is to help people and to teach, and my mother's main goal is to help people and to teach. And these two people made me. I have one of the biggest voices around, so I'm not tryin' to hurt people, I'm tryin' to help people and to teach. I can't find out some information and not tell you."
Kanye has said that his third album, tentatively titled Graduation, will get deeper into social commentary but for now Late Registration will be the avenue to make great music injected with socially relevant topics.
