Rapper Kanye West allegedly considered giving one of his albums Hitler’s name
On Thursday, CNN revealed not only Kanye West’s infatuation with Hitler but also his attitude toward the Nazi dictator. CNN focused exclusively on the instances in which Kanye lauded Adolf and the Nazi party during their initial investigation. A former employee of TMZ also said that Kanye’s comments regarding slavery being a personal choice were cut from the viral video. It is the same TMZ staffer who argued forcefully against West’s sensational allegations. But that’s only the beginning.
Apparently, Universal Music Group and Def Jam Recordings were at disagreement with Ye over the title of his album, as reported by CNN. After its release in June 2018, West insisted that from then on, that was the proper manner to address him. CNN’s Chloe Melas says, however, that Kanye indeed planned to call the album Hitler. There was a really tense moment when Kanye agreed to call the album “Ye” after a prolonged disagreement over the album’s title.
According to the article, many employees stopped feeling safe around Kanye West because of his repeated adulation of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party. Toxic work environments developed among employees who were repulsed by Kanye’s bigotry. As a result of his actions, several of Ye’s closest colleagues abandoned him. They agreed to remain silent, but now some are speaking out against him.
The mental illness argument that Kanye West was clinging to before these revelations has been thoroughly demolished. If what has been said about Kanye West is genuine, he does not suffer from any mental illness. Many years have passed since he first considered giving such a contentious speech. Even if the provocative nature of the album’s title belies his true character, his actions reveal much about him. There is a good reason why no sponsors still want to work with him.
It is important to remember that whatever happens to Kanye West, he is solely accountable for. In a short of weeks, he managed to obliterate his entire legacy. Returning him to public life, even if only to sell clothing, will take considerable time.
