Please Tell Me You Know Who Paul McCartney Is..
Late last week there was a song from the much anticipated collaboration between Kanye West and former Beatle, Paul McCartney. Let me repeat that, Paul McCartney. SIR Paul McCartney. You know, just an iconic figure in the music industry for the past, I don't know, 50 years or so? The dude has more money than all of us combined? The man who wrote "Hey Jude" for crying out loud! Ahem. I digress. There was some confusion, or as I like to call it, lack of intelligence and maybe even respect for music with some of Kanye's fans. After the song was released there was appropriate praise. The track titled "Only One" featured West singing with a massive amount of auto tune and McCartney adding some keyboard playing. It was alright.
Fans took to the internet and started tweeting how immaculate Kanye was for discovering such a new talent in McCartney. Uh, excuse me? Paul was pretty busy making some of the most successful and influential music in the history or recorded audio when Kanye was still in the womb. One tweeter said "I don't know who Paul McCartney is, but Kanye is going to give this man a career w/ this new song!!" Good God. Career? McCartney will have the most successful music career of all time, Kanye can only hope to hold a candle to his, maybe besides the career of The Rolling Stones or Michael Jackson.
