    Be arrogant. Don't ask questions Don't answer if it's not saying it the same way or another question. Exhaustion is why he released his album tired having nobody with no heart

    For that kid from Chicago who's worried about his future (Timestamp 10:39) due to Chicago's gun violence, I can say this, Psalms 91: 11 "For He (God) will give his angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands, they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone." When you are scared, TRUST in God. You cannot protect yourself, but God can. And know this, you will not leave this earth, till your plan (destiny) has been fulfilled. I know Kanye West understands the seriousness of the issue of violence in the inner cities, especially Chicago. People will have to change and people have to love and care for each other. That is the only way violence will end. Also, I think of this Bible verse from Isaiah 41:10 to encourage you, "Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand." Do not give in to fear. Your life is in God's hands, not yours alone. I know it's easy to say, but learn to put your trust in God first, at all times, and every day. Isaiah 54:17 says "No weapon formed against you shall prosper." So know that God is in control of your life always. Hope you read this and are encouraged. To overcome fear, start reading the Bible daily.

    An intellectual creative person thinks outside the box inside a world that lives inside a box. Most people are surface thinkers and haven’t even tapped into their potential because they are employed by those who have.God made all of us creative, but about 75% critique the ones who have pursued and succeeded in it.

      what was he supposed to say? i think it was very empathetic to just listen and understand, instead of saying some bullshit motivational stuff that isn't really gonna help him. he was visibly shook over the story and brought it up one year later. he grew up in chicago himself, he knows how bad it is and didn't want to sugarcoat it. it's fucked up

    INFECTA 3 months ago

    As a day one fan am terribly disappointed with how crap of an answer he gave the young man from Chicago who’s admired you his whole life and is going through it. Not a hug, handshake, even something about what helped him MAKE IT OUT. Instead he gave an essay of a response immediately after though to some random chick who’s pain in life is sketches.

    • Listo Calisto
      Listo Calisto 3 months ago

      INFECTA stop making it so overdramatic. The other questions asked about his views and he was there to give answers about this and make his opinions and views clear. The guy from the hood asked for help and that kind of help that is needed there, Kanye simply cannot provide. So there was literally nothing to talk about. Simple as that. Everybody knows the problems Chicago has and those kind of problems can’t be fixed in the slightest by Kanye. People like you wouldn’t be here criticizing his reaction, if he gave a 10 Minute answer about what needs to change and how horrible things are. But that simply wouldn’t have changed a single thing. That’s literally what he said. Why spread fake hope to make it seem better afterwards? Nah I don’t feel that at all, that’s being a hypocrite

      INFECTA 3 months ago

      @Listo Calisto Listen, I hear that but basically that is like saying I aint got the answers and technically speaking he could have given that kind of response to every single question asked there, technically he would be right - he isn't God he doesnt have a final say so on any single thing asked but of all the people to take that very dismissive stance with it's the one kid from your own old hood that you basically decided to tell "well, no fake hope - I aint got the answer - and thats real" WTF if thats the case every single celeb who's ever made it out the hood should never come back and go schools hold events etc cause they know that they can't change the whole hood - kmt man I can't explain it enough in a RU-clip comment but as of the day I watched this I simply CANNOT make excuses for Kanye anymore and sadly am no longer a fan or supporter - that was straight BS

    • Listo Calisto
      Listo Calisto 3 months ago

      The thing is his problems are bigger than anything Kanye could say there. So no need for fake hope. He said it himself. He’s not gonna give some answer that makes it look good afterwards, because it’s not gonna be.

      at the end of the day my guy realize that this life is evil and in the end you are born alone and you go alone. We are black men in America. There is no other thing to say to that young man other than fight the great fightand do your best to survive. it's sad but its a harsh reality .. Kanye is the realest nigga ever for telling him it is nothing I can say. He isn't perfect and dosent have the answers to life and the struggles because he makes great art and a lot of money. Hes another human being figuring it out as he goes like the rest of us. We put to much hope or expectation in people who work hard everyday like we do to attain what it is we want in this life. Be real..

    Oh wow. This really opened my eyes. I hate it, but I love it at the same time. I watched and listened and I thought of my own son... he is really trying so hard to make me think like...yeah like YOU! He wants me to push my kids to work hard to make me proud. And yeah, I am a proud mom, but what I want even more is for him to be proud of himself. He wants to be bigger so that’s what he needs to do. The same way I have to fight for my dreams to come true. And I know what my dream is. And before I get there I must have a straight plan. Thanks for your lesson Mr. West.

    kerry fournillier 4 months ago

    Point is Kanye West was telling his audience and the viewer it all boils down to information...your talent is good and unique to you but the more information you seek after concerning your gifts and talents of those who trailblazed paths before you , the more success oriented and driven, the more inspired, the more aware, the more knowledgeable you become to navigate the challenges of life.He was not name dropping for the sake of braggadocio but rather showing how he surrounds himself with elite artists, musicians, painters, designers, photographers, inventors, entertainers and like a sponge absorbs, learns and uses their accomplishments to springboard his own creativity..

      Lenny DC it ain’t about being a smart man, it ain’t about being a bitch. The guy was talking to one of his idols about something important and he just poured out, sometimes shit like that is uncontrollable ESPECIALLY when you’re in a large crowd. He’s human too, not everyone’s perfect. Hell, Ye is a perfect example of that

      FriendsWit DaDealer Month ago

      @Lenny DC you sound like a dumb smart individual. Kanye grew up around gun violence like this kid. So the kid figured he could relate to what he was going through and receive words of encouragement from a person he looks up to. You talking about an artist that has since 2004 on the couch of 106 & Park had poignant things to say. All the way to his "rants" on stage. Also Kanye started the show by saying and I'm paraphrasing "ask me about anything you want to know". Theres absolutely nothing wrong with that kid from Chicago asking Kanye West advice about his fear of death at a young age.
