Though his apparel is ghastly, his Yeezy Boosts are played out (sorry, hypebeasts — are you copping or reselling?), and his tantrums are out of hand, I'm still a fan of Kanye West. Call him a "designer" or don't. But what aspiring designer wouldn't use the infrastructure of megabrand Adidas to push out their idea of fashion? Rant or rave about his music — his plea to The Grammys for genuine black music representation was the truth. And yes, his Twitter fingers really should ease up, but he's Kanye being Kanye. It's entertaining.
Despite his belligerent ways, Kanye is still one of my favourite artists/producers. The plight of the artist is an expressive and emotional one, and as a creative person myself, looking to Kanye gives me a feeling of hope that I will eventually come up in the fashion game by being unapologetically me.
