It’s been months since Kanye went public with Kim Kardashian, and his fans are everything BUT pleased. The socialite quickly hit the scene with Kanye right after her divorce with Kris Humphries, causing many to speculate JUST how long the duo have actually been together.
Kanye fans swallow a lot of things. i.e. his recent appearance in a leather skirt (any other person would be bashed IMMEDIATELY), his outspoken nature and “i’m the shit” attitude, why? Because the man makes great music, but this Kim thing has been the toughest pill yet, so much so, that his fans are making him choose between
Kim and his MONEY.
An article from sfexaminer.com, revealed:
“Kanye West used to have as much music biz clout as Jay-Z, but that was before Kim Kardashian. The New York Daily News quotes unnamed sources who say that his “popularity is waning and he has become tainted with too many appearances on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,’ pictures in the celebrity weeklies, and a girlfriend unwelcome in the world of high fashion.”
Part of the audience reportedly walked out on West’s performance during the 12-12-12 benefit concert, and his upcoming show in Atlantic City, N.J., is anything but sold out.”
Kim better be careful, women who start F-ing up a man’s paper don’t last long. What will be even more interesting is seeing exactly how Kanye is going to handle the blow to his pockets. More than likely, he’ll do something insanely brash and the Kanye hype will come shooting back.

Most hip hop fans are on either side of the mainstream-underground split, but A$AP Rocky thinks he can transcend that phenomenon. Rocky expects to be on the radio with his new album “LongLiveA$AP”, but it won’t be the bullsh** you normally hear on the radio.
“I’d put out some whack, slow sh**, straight up. I’ll just put out a song saying nothing – call me Pootie Tang,” joked Rocky to Billboard Magazine. “Putting out that motherf***ing tastemaker music that we do. we change the sound of mainstream. the mainstream isn’t gonna be that bullsh** that you hear on the radio all day. The mainstream’s gonna be that A$AP — we’re gonna change the whole world with this sh*t. I have a dream! I’m the trill Martin Luther King, straight up.”
A$AP Rocky has a lot to live up to following his fantastic “LiveLoveA$AP” mixtape, but considering the quality of the first single Goldie, most fans have faith.
