For a while, I was a little annoyed with Kanye for being so overly egotistical. But, no matter what, I have to respect him because he’s not afraid to express himself at all.
At Casio’s “Shock the World” event at Cipriani’s in New York City, Kanye perfomed an hour-long set, containing a freestyle similar to the “Pinocchio Story” bonus track from 808s & Heartbreak. In the freestyle, part of which can be seen in the video above, he talks about a wide range of subjects, including Michael Jackson, Y2K, the moon landing, the Second Coming of Christ, and, of course, the paparazzi.
It’s definitely worth a listen.
