Kanye West Ponders the Words 'Nigga' and 'Bitch'
After announcing the official tracklist for his G.O.O.D. Music compilation just yesterday, Kanye West took to Twitter to ponder the vocabulary used in Hip-Hop as well as his recent song inspired by Kim Kardashian called “Perfect B*tch.”
West has also used the word ‘b*tch’ before on the Watch The Throne album for the song, “That’s My B*tch.”
Contemplating vocabulary that is acceptable and unacceptable, West tweeted:
“I usually never tweet questions but I struggle with this so here goes… Is the word B*TCH acceptable?
“To be more specific, is it acceptable for a man to call a woman a bitch even if it’s endearing…
“Has hip hop conditioned us to accept this word? Do we love this word as much as we love the word N*GGA in an endearing way?”
With regards to how radio filters profanity, he wondered what it would be like they allowed cursing on American radio.
“What if there was no profanity… What if we decided to legalise profanity in a sense? In France they play songs with cursing on the radio.
“Excuse my French but I’m in France…
“I was recently questioned about the use of the word B*TCH in my music and initially was offended by anyone questioning anything in my music…
“I will admit that I sometimes go back an omit cursing from my records. I like to use profanity as a tool and not a crutch. I’m not tweeting to say what we need and what we don’t… I just wanted to think out loud with you guys today…”
Fans don’t have long to wait on his next choice of words for his lyrics. Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. music family’s Cruel Summer compilation is due on September 18.
