Kanye West: Nathan Thinks He's Awesome, Matt Thinks He Sucks




Here's a transcription of a Skype conversation I (Nath) shared with The Dwarf's Editor-in-chief, Matt. I was a little disgruntled at the amount of hate leveled at Kanye after news of his 2014 tour dropped, so I reached out to him. Much to my chagrin Matt said he thought Kanye 'suck[ed] balls' so we decided we'd duke it out to determine the career validity of the chi-town shuckster in question. This is raw unedited chatter, also:



[17/02/2014 2:49:59 PM] Nathan Hewitt: I feel like I need to say this haha
Kanye is brilliant
[17/02/2014 2:50:06 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Late Registration is a masterpiece
[17/02/2014 2:50:33 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Like he's a total dickhead but yeah
[17/02/2014 8:54:43 PM] Matt: ha ha
[17/02/2014 8:54:48 PM] Matt: I reckon he sucks balls
[17/02/2014 9:32:58 PM] Nathan Hewitt: No man I'm not having this
[17/02/2014 9:33:00 PM] Nathan Hewitt: hahaha
[17/02/2014 9:33:09 PM] Nathan Hewitt: I am not having this
[17/02/2014 9:33:11 PM] Matt: bring it fucker :P
[17/02/2014 9:33:26 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Have you heard 'Heard 'Em Say'?
[17/02/2014 9:33:50 PM] Matt: I've heard that shit song on the motorcycle
[17/02/2014 9:34:14 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Granted, his newer stuff has to be taken with the understanding that his old stuff was genius
[17/02/2014 9:34:36 PM] Nathan Hewitt: but the lyrical content, the production, the instrumentation you hear in his earlier albums (which was all championed by him) is bloody crazy
[17/02/2014 9:34:45 PM] Matt: genius gets thrown around too freely :P
[17/02/2014 9:34:47 PM] Nathan Hewitt: It's contemporary hip-hop at its finest
[17/02/2014 9:35:06 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Genius does get thrown around too freely, and I liken a genius to somebody who is divisive
[17/02/2014 9:35:44 PM] Matt: "Kanye West - Heard 'Em Say ft. Adam Levine"


[17/02/2014 9:35:52 PM] Nathan Hewitt: That's the one
[17/02/2014 9:36:00 PM] Nathan Hewitt: You won't find contemporary hip-hop better than that.
[17/02/2014 9:36:02 PM] Matt: Is that the guy from Maroon 5?
[17/02/2014 9:36:07 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Yup it is
[17/02/2014 9:36:12 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Maroon 5 is a whole other thing haha
[17/02/2014 9:36:54 PM] Nathan Hewitt: youtube.com/… take this though


[17/02/2014 9:37:05 PM] Nathan Hewitt: He's using exactly the same model as Jagwar Ma
[17/02/2014 9:37:06 PM] Matt: That song's a bit crappy
[17/02/2014 9:37:12 PM] Nathan Hewitt: It's not crappy haha
[17/02/2014 9:37:21 PM] Matt: Can't sing live? ha ha
[17/02/2014 9:37:46 PM] Matt: First comment:
[17/02/2014 9:37:48 PM] Matt: "He sounds like SHIT in this video"
[17/02/2014 9:37:57 PM] Nathan Hewitt: HAHA what a dick
[17/02/2014 9:38:15 PM] Nathan Hewitt: go listen to Police Truck and tell me there's a difference
[17/02/2014 9:38:29 PM] Nathan Hewitt: It's exactly the same deal. It's fearless.
[17/02/2014 9:38:50 PM] Nathan Hewitt: That guy doesn't know what he's talking about
[17/02/2014 9:38:58 PM] Matt: That's a good live performance
[17/02/2014 9:39:07 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Exactly!
[17/02/2014 9:39:23 PM] Nathan Hewitt: It's exactly same model Jagwar Ma uses
Guy rocking the mic, guy(s) rocking the gear
[17/02/2014 9:39:32 PM] Nathan Hewitt: And he's a lot more on point than the Jagwar Ma singer I tell you
[17/02/2014 9:40:01 PM] Nathan Hewitt: How is this not punk as shit?
[17/02/2014 9:40:17 PM] Matt: Totally, it's much better than that first track
[17/02/2014 9:40:32 PM] Matt: It reminds me of Saul Williams a bit
[17/02/2014 9:40:41 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Exactly!!!
[17/02/2014 9:40:49 PM] Matt: Have you seen him live?
[17/02/2014 9:40:58 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Saul only in videos


[17/02/2014 9:41:11 PM] Matt: He does this song even better live
[17/02/2014 9:41:32 PM] Nathan Hewitt: totally agree
[17/02/2014 9:41:36 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Yes yes!
[17/02/2014 9:44:09 PM] Nathan Hewitt: I want to see Saul real bad.
[17/02/2014 9:45:09 PM] Nathan Hewitt: I just think that Kanye is a douchebag but he's so so so real. Unlike Lorde, he is always risking shit. He's always out of his own and our comfort zones
[17/02/2014 9:45:31 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Like 'Touch The Sky' was competent and poppy but his new shit is challenging as. So much so that I'm not even sure I like it
[17/02/2014 9:45:43 PM] Nathan Hewitt: but that's important I think. People need to stop being safe.
[17/02/2014 9:46:09 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Like who does what Kanye does?
[17/02/2014 9:46:10 PM] Matt: Safe is boring
[17/02/2014 9:46:17 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Safe is the worst.
[17/02/2014 9:46:22 PM] Matt: Beats me, I think he sucks.
[17/02/2014 9:46:26 PM] Matt: :P
[17/02/2014 9:46:34 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Haha man this is cutting me
[17/02/2014 9:46:50 PM] Matt: Find me another song like that live one
[17/02/2014 9:47:14 PM] Matt: I'm into that. Screaming into a mic.
[17/02/2014 9:47:31 PM] Nathan Hewitt: Haha I got you


[17/02/2014 9:49:20 PM] Nathan Hewitt:
probs won't like this but it's pretty fierce
[17/02/2014 9:49:30 PM] Nathan Hewitt: forgiving the totally weak as piss setting
[17/02/2014 9:50:56 PM] Nathan Hewitt:
