Is Kanye West actually crazy?

Approx Reading Time-8The mental workings of Kanye West have been well documented, especially at TBS, but this vid locates the true source of Yeezus.




We know two Kanye Wests. There was once Mr West, but now there’s Yeezus. But where, and more importantly, how did the two sides of his personality split?

Youtube sages Wisecrack have a theory. The idea of the self, the mirror image of our souls, and how we twist the idea of what that idea is. In Kanye’s case, the ‘media-self’ he has created, has become him due to the environment that he inhabits.

So who is to blame? Is he just an actor maintaining an image? Or does he face the same challenges we do to become accepted?
