Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West explained the importance of music and how penning his now-infamous “Famous” song turned therapeutic during a concert this past weekend.
Performing at Paradise International Music Festival in the Philippines Saturday (April 9), Yeezy took a moment to delve into his personal life.
“That [2009 VMAs night] night when I went onstage was the beginning of the end of my life. You know what night I’m talking about. When I just said what everybody else was thinking. … I had to fight for every day of my life when the whole world turned against me for saying out loud what everyone else felt. But that’s the job of an artist, of a true artist, not to be controlled by financiers, not to be controlled by perception but only to be controlled by their truth. What you see, what you feel and say what you f*cking feel. … I fought to make [‘Famous’] the first single off of [T.L.O.P.]” (NME)
