Jon Pareles On Kanye West

Jon Pareles of the New York Times has a sensational piece on the new album by the ego formerly known as Kanye West.

This is one of the best pieces of music criticism I've read in ages.

I think JP has missed the point - has he never heard or irony or self mockery - of course boasting is at the heart of 'toasting' and hip hop - and that's what its about - cos he has much to boast about AND all that whilst mocking the status symbols and trappings of 'celebrity life style' Louis V - champagne for all :) Love him -
