Kanye’s Childhood Influence Reeks of Genitalia
Finally, we now know where the immortal, self-appointed King of Human Beings Kanye West got his inspiration.
And it has nothing to do with Teen Wolf-inspired shades, lasers, so-called racist white presidents, or dropping out of college.
In an interview that runs in the current issue of Style magazine, the critically acclaimed artist tells of a rather peculiar and almost Freudian childhood experience that would lay the framework that now supports his popularized off-beat style (disclaimer: the following may be offensive to die-hard Nintendo fans and experienced video game programmers):
“First beat I did was in seventh grade, on my computer,” West recalls. “I got into doing beats for the video games I used to try to make. My game was very sexual. The main character was, like, a giant penis. It was like Mario Brothers, but the ghosts were, like, vaginas. Mind you, I’m 12 years old, and this is stuff 30-year-olds are programming. You’d have to draw in and program every little step—it literally took me all night to do a step, ’cause the penis, y’know, had little feet and eyes.”
Can’t fault the guy for being too creative.
