You know, some days, especially in this political climate, you scroll through whatever your daily sites are, and you just put your head in your hands and say, “Not today, Satan.”
But other days, you open the internet and you’re like this:
And today was one of those days for me, because according to TMZ, Kanye West recording his next record atop a mountain, which is just too hilarious to me. West has a known god complex, actually saying things like, “Whoa by 50 percent [I am more influential than] Stanley Kubrick, Apostle Paul, Picasso… fucking Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent, more influential than any other human being,” and, “I am God’s vessel. But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.” And that’s why I fucking love him. Anyone who can shamelessly be so absurd, so extra, so ego-maniacal and still make some of the best music our generation will ever produce is my kind of people. (I’m a Leo, sue me.)
So to get to read today that he is — likely trying to one-up Drake, who reportedly made most of Views alone at the top of Toronto’s CN Tower — holed up on a mountain in Wyoming making the world’s next favorite bangers and likely filling that God vessel up to the brim with ego and beats was a gift. There has been no official statement, but his wife Kim Kardashian has been making public appearances solo, and TMZ‘s sources estimate he’s been locked in creative tunnel vision at the Wyoming retreat for about two weeks — which has also been reflected in his social media absence.
So leave him be, please. I need summer jams ASAP.
