“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
Ladies and gentlemen it is time I do a story on the very talented but confused Kanye West here on “Music Inner City News Magazine”.
I try not to bash African Americans on my sites but in this case I have to get it in. Not bashing West just giving my views.
Guess people really started to wonder what is really going on with West when he jumped on stage and surprised everyone including Taylor Swift a few years ago and took the microphone and said Beyonce should have won a award and not Taylor. That was just flat out wrong for Kanye to do that to Taylor. Ever since then I have grown to like Swift. Not really her music, just how she handled that event.
Since then West has continued to say and do things that make me and others wonder what is wrong with this dude. It is obvious something is wrong mentally with Kanye. It just is. So a question has to be asked. Does Kanye West need a doctor. Does he need therapy? I say yes.
Is it a mental problem or is it a emotional problem or is it a financial problem with him? For goodness sake, he has came out and said Bill Cosby is innocent. He has said he is the best artist in music history. He blasts his ex lady Amber Rose and so on. For sure West is a rapper who is one of if not the best rapper in the history of hip-hop/rap music. This is for sure.
But something is very wrong with the brotha. Recently he tweeted he is $53 million in personal debt. He went on to say…are you ready for this ladies and gentlemen, that instead of opening a school in Africa, “fellow rich people should support him!! He was directing this to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg who West begged him to give him $1 BILLION!! SAY WHAT????
He also said he would take support from Google co-founder Larry Page or from other Sillicon Valley rich folks. This shows that Kanye has a very serious problem. Or is it just a act for publicity? I think he needs therapy. And needs it now. This is my opinion.
He is a father of two little kids with Kim Kardashian. He should get the help now before his children realize something is wrong with daddy. Do it before it is to late. I just mentioned only a few of his outburts over the years. On social media and in interviews. He will go off like a fire cracker at any time during a interview. The person doing the interview has to be ready for anything when they deal with West.
Rap artist Rhymefest who has worked with Kanye a lot of songs has recently pulled away from working with him. He said “my brother needs help, in the form of counseling. Spiritual & mental. He should step away from the public and heal”. Real talk!!
I agree with Rhymefest. West should get help now. Hell recently he went off on Taylor Swift AGAIN saying “Hell I made the bitch” WHY would he say that about Taylor? What in the hell has Taylor Swift done to him? Is West a HATER against Swift because she has obtained hella Grammys and American Music Awards etc? I say yes!! He is a hater against West. That is stupid and crazy.
So in ending, I am tired of Kanye West going off on people. Some say he has not got over the passing of his mom who died a few years ago during a simple breast procedure. He and his mom were very very tight. But what ever the reason is, I join others who are starting to say it is not publicity when it comes to West and his outburst. This very talented fella should check himself in and get badly needed therapy immediately.

If you was a fan of the “Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air” you know it was a very very funny program that made Will Smith a superstar and a household name. I watch the re-runs on TV and it is still a funny program.
Smith was a big time rapper with his childhood homie Jazzy Jeff and they won Grammys for their music led by their monster hit, “Parents Just Don’t Understand”. A TV program was started just for him and it blew up and sorry to say, when that happens……the haters show up.
This time the hater was a person that was a part of the doggone program, Janet Hubert. For years she has went public putting Will Smith on blast and has even written a book of her experiences on the program. The female has a damn problem and you know what it is readers? JEAOLOUSY!!!! Pure and simple.
What Ms Hubert has failed to see FOR YEARS is that “THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR” WAS A PROGRAM MADE FOR WILL SMITH!!! He was the star. JANET HUBERT WAS NOT THE STAR! For some unknown reason she continues to blast Will in very negative ways in the public. This time calling him a “asshole”
She left the program because she wanted more money like she was the damn star of the show! Funny things is you do not hear or see other members of the cast blasting Big Willy. It is ONLY Janet.
She needs to get over her jealous feelings against Will. Smith is most likely worth $500 million, what is Janet Hubert worth? Where has her career gone? I don’t like to blast my African American brothas and sistas here on “Music Inner City News Magazine”
BUT I am just TIRED of reading articles about Janet Hubert talking negative about Will Smith!! Will Smith is a Hollywood mega-star and she is not. She should move on with her career and leave Smith alone. Gordon Curvey

As a person who is in the music industry for more than twenty years I am shocked at what happened at the Grammy Awards I watched on CBS. What are people thinking?
How on earth did The Suburbs beat out mega star Eminem for Album of the Year? His “Recovery” was the year’s best selling album. I cannot put in my brain how Slim Shady lost to The Suburbs. Something is very wrong there.
Also nothing against my African American sista Esperanza Spalding BUT how on earth did she win Best New Artist? What!! I had never even heard of her. She won the award beating Drake and a young talented young fella who has taken the industry by storm and even has a movie coming out, Justin Bieber. What!! How can that happen?
Shout out to the legendary Mavis Staples for finally winning a Grammy after decades in the industry. I was so happy to see her win. Also another legend Sir Paul McCartney won his first Grammy in 31 years for Best Solo Rock Performance for “Helter Skelter”. A song his former group, you heard of them…The Beatles first recorded in 1968.
And if you don’t know, Lady GaGa arrived to go down the red carpet in a big giant egg!! I am not lying folks she did!! You have to give it to GaGa. She is a for real entertainer with her own style. Unlike many many artists.
But I just cannot get over The Surburbs and Esperanza Spalding winning awards. Unreal folks. Gordon Curvey
