Not strange. I just don't find that any black person today post civil rights era have any audacity or right to call someone else a sellout being that like 90% of them are sellouts themselves. It's like the bad cop trying to arrest the criminal.

I just think he became a lost soul after his mom died. He suddenly got obsessed with darkness, and occult symbology...Some sinister stuff. Then to concur with you, he went and had serious relationships with insanely gorgeous women, that I know most black men would never be comfortable being in love with i.e. an ex stripper, and an ex sex tape star.. Going against traditional hip hop laws/beliefs. I don't know how this dude thinks, but at least he's a genius so he deserves a bit slack? Plus, he knows them better than we do...maybe they actually are mentally stimulating, and capable of loyalty and true love. Who knows?? But from what I've seen on TV, I'd definitely have to pick their brain, in person, to hopefully discover any hope in them lol

Yes, obviously taking the words of Dr. King and twisting them to say "free at last, thank God almighty they free at last" to add to his filthy lyrics about [email protected] is a form of selling out.

But after Lil Wayne and the Emmitt Till debacle, this is a continuation of the disrespect to the icons for commercial success.

I have come to the conclusion that these rappers are the true "sellouts", and do not speak for the community at all.

I want to see his daughter, I'm positive she is so adorable! With Kim as her mom... And of course beautiful coloring from Papa... I hope they do not give her some weird name like Apple, Blanket or Jowntasia

not a sellout for the way he dress or travelling or anything, or even who he chose to date... not at all , hes a sellout for all that bitching and moaning about racism and black people yet he goes mainstream dumps his girl and only dates white n bright now. but who k nows, kanye seems to have fallen apart after the death of his mother.

What? I like Jigga but the only White in him is his eyeballs. Beyonce on the other hand is a totally different story. That Ho is beautiful and light skinned like myself.

"North" is an especially weird name in my view.

And will make her prone to silly direction jokes all the time.

North West, really Kanye?

Agree! Kanye is the same man who wrote 'Jesus Walk'. He has clearly gotten off the path he once walked & changed his messages completely since his early albums. From this we can conclude he's a sellout NOT so much too BP but himself. All we can do is pray for some of these celebrities & those who embody all their messages because they are doing an injustice too themselves. Our icons however will always be respected for their contributions.

I know right, Pretty dissapointed about that. It's like some weird competition amongst celebrities... But Nori sounds cute, they should have stopped there.

Kanye keeps his ignorance flowing, this time attacking a paparazzi for trying to take his picture.

Of course he would be upset if there was not a line of them trying to get his picture.

"Nori" would be much better than "North".

Sounds like Hangover Part IV where you wake up after drinking yourself into a blackout, and realize you were so out of it, you named your child, North!
