Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Kanye Acting Crazy To Push Black American Psycho Album?

Vice magazine has an interesting theory on Kanye West’s recent behavior. Basically, they are suggesting that he is acting crazy in order to promote his looming new album seemingly called “Black American Psycho.” Only thing is…Kanye never said that. Here’s what they say:

Remember when Joaquin Phoenix went off the rails? Back in 2010 the actor-turned-rapper fooled David Letterman (and the world) into thinking that he’d fallen off the track and ditched an Academy Award nominating and Golden Globe winning career for a beard, drugs and a lazy flow.

Except, they were wrong. Phoenix wasn’t who he claimed to be. He was still the same old guy. He’d just been exercising a lesson in extended method acting for an albeit average new film. With Kanye’s recent plethora of very public breakdowns, could he be heading down the same route?

Back last year a school kid convinced the internet that Kanye’s new record was going to be called Black American Pyscho. Although the site that the kid set up was later found to be a hoax, the unconfirmed name runs parallel with Kanye’s current persona. Is Kanye crazy? Or does he want everyone to think that he is? He announced in Paris that we can expect new material within the next two months. Could Kanye be setting up a hyper-characterization for his new record? Let’s take a look…

For the recent run of shows he’s been bounding about in a strait-jacket. I get that artists have to advance and Kanye wasn’t going to be wearing a pink polo forever. But, the transition from Yeezy 2’s to a strait-jacket doesn’t happen without reasoning. Kanye is a perfectionist so you best be betting your bottom dollar that he’s got a load of reasoning bottled away for the return back to his indulgent, conceptual solo efforts.

They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry! -illseed.

    • Immortal Technique on Fire – Infowars

      Maybe the best Alex Jones interview ever…next to KRS One’s of course!

      • I watched it twice…Def the best interview of all guests. Haven’t seen Kris’ yet

      • He has a few, and the crazy ‘chet is, he gives KRS the opportunity to promote his show that night & KRS was like “Ahh, UH,….the people know how to find it!”

        AJ would call him “KSR” and he never corrected him, etc., he was just humble & mind blowing.
        It was deep!

      • I.T. is a history buff….. he knows his history and how things start and grow into what it is today………….classic knowledge of self………

      • DJ7

        I think he out shined the Teacha… as for what to watch….Brother Polight vs Sara Sutin Seti debate….3+hrs of knowledge to build on… we need more of that

      • The Teacha’s style is for less educated, but I.T.’s style is for those that have a firm grasp on the specifics of history.

        Seti? Totally different aspect, but he be getting busy!

      • obaminator

        alex jones a faggot, he work for the damn government foolin people with his dumb info on how this government is so invincible while he eats their burgers and makes millions

      • Still a damn good interview, but I don’t follow him enough to have that opinion….he does open people’s eyes that would normally be closed.

    I wanna rob a liquor store in that mask in that second picture.

  • Blaq_Boi

    Say what you want about the man but you can’t f*x with the artist

    • fabbidavisjr

      He’s a genius with music, as a man he’s a jerk. Kind of like mayweather with boxing.

      • Genius? That’s a slight overstatement.

      • fabbidavisjr

        Just my opinion. I think Mayweather is a boxing genius not the best ever but a genius non the less. Same with Kanye. Compared to the average man making music Kanye is a genius.

  • therealjjohnson

    Kanye continues to perform these rituals on stage and pass it off as “art”.

  • It use to be all about the music, now it’s the scandals that’s selling the music.

  • He’s pretending to be crazy? Today’s new excuse….

  • Black Exodus

    The Music stopped years ago…it’s all about gimmick, look, the visual and entertainment value…the more controversy the better. Kanye has his “brand” also has a had a great career plus he gets it…Marketing 101! Good for him and his fans.

  • Taihair Djehuty

    If Ye is doing for pub for the album, genius causes he’s got us talking and reading about him despite how much we might be annoyed


  • As a black man, I can’t even relate to Kanye West.
