AnonymousSo Kanye crashed because he was crashed out.Irony at its best!Elizabeth from Myrtle Beach, ScI was in a pretty bad accident myself recently. I was hit by what could only be described as a drunk driver, they haven”t found him yet. I had stitches above my eye and my arm was broken in 2 spots. The only thing I could think about was the damage and how I was going to pay for it. I heard on the radio that there is a place I could get great discount Volvo parts that I need. I was so happy with the deals I got.

deeprez_ from Arizona, AzMase once burned a Wu Tang flag, and Ghost punched him.”If you could feel how my face felt, you would know how Mase felt”-Kanye westRebeca from Spartanburg, ScI haven”t listened to this yet, i like stronger though :DNikki from Chicago, IlThanks Jesse, “Chi-town stand up!” And to the comment about Kanye West reppin” Chicago. I think he does way better than R. Kelly reppin” Chicago because he reached back,he”s helping Chicago artist who haven”t had much mainstreet success as well as discovering new Chicago artist. He”s helping Shawnna, Twista, Do or Die, Bumpy Johnson, Rhymefest, Lupe Fiasco and Malik Yusef and he”s introducing the world to GLC, Really Doe. Hustle and G.O.O.D. Music (2 Kanye labels and management companies) are going to put Chicago on the map in the near feature that people from Chicago won”t have to leave and go to NY or LA, etc. to pursue their musical careers.Evan from Pensacola, FlKanye West is a great solo artist. If you do not think so you obviously havent listened to many of his songs and if you think this is his best song, once again, you havent listened to much of his music. The song is good, but by far not one of his best. I am a big fan of music and kanye is in my top 5. You need to listen to Kanye”s first album The College Dropout. Even though he has a lot of featured artist, he is still a great solo artist. He is a lyricist. Listen to Spaceship, Never let you down, Family Business, and Last Call. All on his first album.Mariana from Charleston, ScEmmett Till was from Chicago, I”m pretty sure. The case made headlines also because his mother had an open casket for Emmett, despite–or because of–his mutilated face. The magazine Jet photographed it and put it on their cover, which more or less forced a lot of America to face racism in the country. And yeah, this song is amazing. Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, ScIf i remember correctly, emmett Till wasn”t from Mississippi. He had just gone down there to visit his grandparents. As a result, he didn”t know as much about the segregation that was going on in the South at the time. After all, the South at the time was one of the worst places for black people to live. segregation was rampant and if any of them said anything wrong or did anything wrong they could be brutally mutilated. feel free to correct me if any of this is wrong. Does anyone know where Emmett till was from? He didn”t live in the south. I want to say he was from Michigan, but I”m really not sure.Kristen from Aurora, IlHey what about his other songs? His song School Spirit mentions my school in Aurora.Jesse from Chicago, Ilsecond of all, Not since R. Kelly(save the jokes) has someone represented chicago in the R&B/hip hop world so proudly in their musicJesse from Chicago, IlFirst of all, Nikki, you summed up this song perfectly in jonathanlewisforcongress.com. Everything you said, I came to this website to say. you saved me the trouble. thanx.Jesse=CHI TOWNAllison from New York, NyThis song is Kanye”s best by far. You can hear in his voice how much he loves music. But although Kanye is a great producer (Jay-Z, Twista, keysha cole) hes not a great solo artist. Its a shame all his songs arent this goodsee more comments
