'Poet' Kanye West
Kanye West thinks of himself as a "true poet".
The 'Gold Digger' singer, who had a troubled 2009 following his storming of the stage during the MTV Video Music Awards acceptance speech from country music singer Taylor Swift, claimed his work just keeps getting better.
He wrote on his blog: "It's funny how so many rappers get worse as their careers stretch out but true poets get better.
"We will follow in the footsteps of Maya Angelou, Gill Scott Herron and Nina Simone.
"Their work improved with time. They documented what was happening in culture. That is our responsibility as the modern day artists and poets, to accurately present what is happening now."
The 32-year-old star also urged his fans not to believe everything they read in the popular press.
He added: "Let us look past headlines and deal with just a bit of reality in this new decade. We have our own outlets now."Posted on 5 Jan 2010 07:30 to category : Music News
