"You know the Confederate flag represented slavery in a way," he said. "So I made the song ‘New Slaves’ (on his new album, ‘Yeezus’). I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. It’s my flag now. Now what you going to do?"

Kanye can’t be throwing tantrums around the entire globe talking about how people are stopping him from saving the world through art and design and then turn around and release a video that look like an intern at the public access channel made it using pirated Windows Media Maker software. 

If you wanna talk all that shit…….. fine…. but your work has to reflect it. 

Kanye West will tour Yeezus, he announced this morning. The 23-city North American trek will be his first solo outing in five years; Kendrick Lamar will be the sole opener. Tickets go on sale next Friday. (They’ll probably be tough to get.) For now, see a full list of dates below and at Kanye’s site.
