Kanye West has made ranting a signature staple of his public persona. For his new hologram video “New Slaves,” which debuted yesterday on buildings in 66 locations across the world, West colors his usual angst with black rage aimed at the rampant materialism and racism in society. You’ll note from the above quote that ‘Ye uses societal problems to justify his self-described asshole behavior. Whether you agree with his perspective or not, it’s always welcome when mainstream Hip-Hop artists try their hand at serious, relevant topics over the usual BS (and in Kanye’s case, he didn’t embarrass himself or the culture like LL Cool J a few weeks back with that “Accidental Racist” monstrosity).

Could have done without the self-indulgent, singing outro though.
