After all the blame was thrown at Pearl Jam, the organizers at Bonnaroo - and after all the inane posturing and whining like a little-girl with a skinned knee - the truth finally comes out about why West was late Saturday night.
From the MTV website.
Ush had been in Japan but flew in especially to hold Jeezy down. Later, when the MC was doing his sing-songy delivery — "I put onnnn. I put on for my city! On, on for my city!" — the crowd erupted again when Kanye West came out to perform his part in "Put On."
"You got that big fame, homie, and you just changed, homie/ You can ask big homie, man, the top so lonely," Kanye rapped. The fans responded by shouting out Kanye's ad libs: "So lonely, I, I, I, I-I-I-I-I-I-I!"
"I put on for my city. Tell them catch up!" Jeezy yelled after West's verse. Jeezy then let Kanye give the people a taste of "Can't Tell Me Nothing."
"Two years ago I brought out Jay-Z — this year I brought out Usher and Kanye," Jeezy boasted. "Catch up, n---as! I put on for my city!"
Well, consider this a first ( and perhaps a last ) since I have just used MTV as a credible source of news. But, since Kanye is nothing but a marketing tool created by MTV, it's only fitting that I use said 'news' source.
So, there you have it. Kanye West shifted his set around, THEN went to Atlanta on the night he was scheduled to perform, came back and was like, "why is this not working?!?!?! Why can't you all just make this happen!?!?!?!? I'm Kanye Fucking West!?!?!?!?!? I'm going to blog about this so hard on my Mac AirBook and have all my 'fans' tell me how great I am so that I can feel validated and special!!!!!"
Yeah, you should read those 'comments' on Kanye's blog. Really makes you feel better about yourself knowing that you have your own identity.
