#KanyeJobTitles is Twitter’s Latest (and Hilarious) Roast

Kanye West being on this media blitz for his Yeezus album and tour has been a gift and a curse. It’s a gift because there’s no shortage of material from Kanye’s shenanigans (like when he was on Jimmy Kimmel), and curse because of the same reason. No one loves Kanye like Kanye and YAYYY high self-esteem. But the man’s ego might be bigger than all the arenas he’s performed in. Dude stays comparing himself to the greats in whatever way he can manage.

In one of his many latest rants, Kanye went off on Nike and said he’s gonna become the “Tupac of Product Design.”

WUT? That doesn’t e’em make any sense. Lawd. He’s also compared himself to Shakespeare, Michelangelo, Steve Jobs, Ralph Lauren, the French Revolution and Harriet Tubman in various interviews. And this is why the #KanyeJobTitles hashtag was created by @YoungSinick and @JamilahLemieux. And it’s awesome. Check out highlights below.

I am CRACKING UP! I love Twitter.

    Ok right now I can’t think of any suitable quips and quotes, except maybe “I am the Bear Grylls of sale racks”.

    The following link is a post on E!’s website, these people throw so much shade at Kanye on a weekly basis he should be living in the jungle, because his idiofoolery knows no bounds.

    Maybe it is because I am surrounded by a lot of Kanye/Kimye stans (in my apartment building, at work, traveling by the MTA) that I am starting to think that I am crazy for believing that Kanye isn’t a musical genius.
    Sure, he has talented. I can’t deny that fact. But, I don’t think that he is a genius. For me, he’s just a dude that makes beats.
    Maybe it is because he is a Gemini (I am one, as well) and I know that we tend to be some silver-tongued, bullsh*tters that can convince people that a small pile of turd is the Hope Diamond.
    Also, why does this muthasucka thinks that he is so influential and powerful (in regards to the fashion business) that his “boycotting” will do some damage? Doesn’t he realize that as long as the wives of prime ministers, A-List actors/actresses, famous models, dignitaries and other wealthy (not the nouveau riche suckas)people are buying clothes from these fashion houses, his actions don’t mean a d*mn thing?
