David Bowie’s body isn’t even cold yet, and already Kanye West is talking about making an album of David Bowie Covers… Kanye style.

Hey I know. Why doesn’t Kanye just take all of David Bowie’s work, throw it in a trashcan, take a dump on it, then light the thing on fire?

Oh wait, he apparently is.

The media is referring to it as a “tribute”.

West, who refers to The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and the Beatles as “those musicians you see in those old black-and-white photos,” and who has said, “I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade,” and who said that his greatest pain is that he will not be able to see himself perform live and that he’s a genius and if the Bible was rewritten today, he’d be in it:

“I’m doing pretty good as far as geniuses go… I’m like a machine. I’m a robot. You cannot offend a robot… I’m going down as a legend, whether or not you like me or not. I am the new Jim Morrison. I am the new Kurt Cobain… The Bible had 20, 30, 40, 50 characters in it. You don’t think that I would be one of the characters of today’s modern Bible?” (source)

… is now going to piss all over Bowie’s work, because, you know, he’s such a Biblical genius.

Oh, I’m sorry, he’s going to be “adding his Yeezy twist to the classic hits”:

The Daily Star reports that the rapper wants to pay tribute to Bowie by recording some of his tracks but mixing them with his own twist.
A source told the Daily Star that “Some are straightforward cover versions with Kanye actually singing. On others he is rapping with his own lyrics over Bowie’s music.”
 The source also claimed that Kanye sees himself as Bowie’s successor in terms of musical innovation.
(HAHHAHAHAHHAAH… oh sorry, continuing:)
The insider also added: “[Kanye] is determined to carry on David’s work as a musical innovator. He says that the torch has been passed to him.”

A musical innovator? Successor? The torch?


Is that why, less than 24 hours after West’s announcement, Bowie fans are literally starting petitions to try and stop this from happening?

Is that why, when the Guardian reported Kanye as just such a musical innovator to make a Bowie cover album, commenter Anna Eldrid wrote, “‘Innovative’? Since when does it mean that your music sounds like it was sung into a $5 microphone, auto-tuned by your grandma and remixed in toilet-studio?”

Is that why people take the time to make whole videos just explaining how much he sucks???

    What a bag of crap Kan not come close to David Bowie’s talent. Your are so far off on this one. And to compare yourself to the Holy prophets in the Holy Bible, is evil.
    I loved David Bowie, and his original, imagination that made him successful. He did not have to rely on anyone else’s work, nor material.
    Kanye, it is clear you have NO respect for other artists, nor their legacy. You SUCK.

  • Chish

    Bowie, even at room temperature still has more talent (and class) than West
    could ever hope for.

            Compulsory license


            “Copyright law also allows for a “compulsory mechanical license”. Under the law, anybody can obtain compulsory mechanical license without express permission from the copyright holder.”

            “A compulsory license provides that the owner of a patent or copyright licenses the use of their rights against payment either set by law or determined through some form of adjudication or arbitration. In essence, under a compulsory license, an individual or company seeking to use another’s intellectual property can do so without seeking the rights holder’s consent, and pays the rights holder a set fee for the license. This is an exception to the general rule under intellectual property laws that the intellectual property owner enjoys exclusive rights that it may license – or decline to license – to others.”

        Don’t you have a package to plant some wheres fucks like you cry about gun and music

        yet love to blow little kids up HUH fuck twit

        • Disciple

          I really have no idea what you are talking about, I’ve never cried about “gun and music” I like guns and I could care less about popular music now that I’m a grown man. I’ve never heard a Kanye song and I don’t know who he is, I just clicked on this article because I was a Bowie fan in my youth.

          I don’t know what you mean by the rest of that comment. You shouldn’t get so angry when you are wrong about something, it makes you seem like a twenty year old kid, or a liberal.
