Yesterday, Kanye West unleashed a twitter rant on the subject of creativity.
Even though I’m not the biggest fan of Kanye’s personality, I appreciate his music and highly respect his perspective on creativity. Many of his tweets were inspiring. While most of the things Kanye says is arrogant and bait-shit crazy, in this particular instance, Kanye offered a real conversation on the power of creativity.
Check his tweets out:
While reading his tweets, I was like:
Regardless of how you may feel about the hip-hop artist, Mr. West made several valuable points that are worth noting. One of the most convincing points he made in his barrage of tweets is that “as a creative your ideas are your strongest form of currency.”
Often as creative individuals, we take our ideas for granted and allow people to take advantage of our artistic abilities. Being a creative individual who has encountered business professionals who have attempted to delegitimized my value as an artist, many of the points that Mr. West made resonated with my soul.
