He who has proclaimed “I Am a God” on an album called “Yeezus” is not particularly known for his humility.
Nevertheless, Kanye West admitted to experiencing a twinge of modesty at the recent BET Honors. As he took the stage to accept a Visionary Award, West stated: For the first time in my life, I understand what it’s like to feel humbled.
As the spirit overtook him, West went on to wax philosophically about the nature of racism and slavery. He told the somewhat captive audience that “on the micro” there seem to be different races, “as opposed to the macro which is the human race.”
Perhaps his wisest sentiment of the glitzy evening was something to this effect: Just because we’ve made it big time doesn’t mean we aren’t slaves.
“Au contraire,” continued he who hangs out at Le Louvre in Paris: We’re slaves to the idea of being cool.
