Kanye West Graces VMAN, Spring 2011

 

Everything you could possibly want to know about Kanye is right there on the record. There is no truer portrayal of him than the lyrics to “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” It’s his poetry, his art. To focus on anything but that would be a sad insult and a pointless redundancy. But to work with Kanye and create something out of those lyrics, a concrete poem, a piece of art, is more emblematic than any quote could ever be. These are his words. This is a portrait of the artist as a man.

These pics are dope, but I can’t help but wish that they were more artistically symbolic of the above quote.
