Exclusive: ‘Mercy’ Co-Writer Says Kanye West Gets Demonized

By  | 

Kanye West’s controversial album Yeezus has been the talk of the month. Critics world wide have had negative opinions about the rapper’s sixth studio album, but one person is stepping out and saying it’s not fair that West is being scrutinized.

While on the red carpet for the ASCAP Awards on Thursday night, HipHollywood caught up with Kanye’s friend and “Mercy” co-writer, Malik Yusef, who shared his thoughts on Kanye receiving so much backlash. “People over scrutinize Kanye because of the amount of energy he puts out, but we don’t scrutinize any other group of people not even a person as much as we scrutinize Kanye West,” Yusef explained.

“Kanye gets demonized for saying what we all say and what we all do and think in our living rooms … It’s amazing to me how people can be so small minded and shallow when it comes to things that they choose not to embrace,” Malik added.

Yusef also shared with HH that since becoming a father, Kanye has been on cloud nine. “He’s doing well, he’s very excited, he’s very happy. Him and Kim are in love obviously, they love the baby, I’m just happy to have a new addition to the fam,” the “Mercy” writer shared.

    Kanye sucks big time and can’t sing or isn’t a good entertainer who will last but for his racist energy and contempt for Jesus. He’s not worth spit and he’s going down. Too many people love God In all colors and resent Kanye, who is in love with himself and his baby but nobody else. He’s a thug and not worth our time but to watch him soar before he takes the road downhill… big bump for the slime.

          No your grammar isn’t shit, it’s you who is. Worry not, we won’t be friends. And that you would tell me to get his dick when you’ve already fondeled it and put it on your wish list with your teddy tells me your jealous. Hey, he’s got a guy he lives with in France, that wouldn’t be you. HA and he is a no talent ugly low life whose lovely mother would never have allowed him to act the way he does. He’s got a craft when you plug up your nose with enough drugs. But he’s a lousy artist and only a screamer.

        You are a follower of the dude who is shit and racist, oh, and Jesus too .. and you prove what I said, morons and low life’s are his followers and not the public. You’ll be one to help take him down. Keep up your rant and rage so he falls faster. And your grammer I missed, you have none. You’re steeped in substance and it’s who you are .. freak. But you are helping take him down proving who he really is and who his fans are .. twisted. Keep it up.

          “OPP other people’s poop…” Again, small minded and shallow. And don’t talk classiness. Your picture makes you out to be a call-girl, and a cheap one at that. And insulting other people’s names with cheesy 4th grade acrostics, yeah, thats classy. Kanye has reengineered music, and created new sounds. Not only that, but he has created very fresh and untraditional clothing style with large influences from Givenchy, Rick Owens, and Maison Martin Margiela. Kanye is fresher, more stylish, and more creative than you could ever dream of being. Infact, one of his outfits probably costs more than your car.

      Settle down, not like your people were held down and forced to work without pay and deprecated from your blood line. He wasn’t being racist, he feels white people judge him more than blacks and it true. He doesn’t hate god or think he is the one god. If you listen to his album he said I’m a man of god. And a thug? He is far from it, man had 808s and heartbreaks and made sampled soul and gospels for his old music, I guess you think all black rappers are thugs huh?

Your fool is not liked for his bad singing cause he can’t sing .. and you’re right it’s only his face that’s ugly for he’s a little guy who couldn’t do better than scream and swear. He’s nota rapper .. not like the good guys we all love .. bring us Usher and 50 cent and all the ones we like .. he isn’t it ..He’s a little loser guy with a lotta xmoney and a slut for his baby’s mommy. That’s who he is … his mommy had she lived wouldn’t have liked who he became .. she was a fun lady .. and you are just dumb. But forgive me when you challenge me next casuse I do have a life and you aren’t in it.
