Kanye West On The Dangers Of Being A Rapper: "This Is Like Being The Police Or Like War" [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

The rap game is dangerous business. According to Kanye West, it ranks right up there with our American soldiers putting their lives on the line in war or the men and women in blue who protect our city streets.

 

West was giving an interview to Saturday Night Online over the weekend when he made the comments.

 

 

"I'm giving my body on the stage and putting my life at risk," Kanye said. "I think about when I'm on the 'Can't Tell Me Nothing/Coldest Winter' moment. That mountain goes really, really high. And if I slip you never know. And I think about my family like, 'Wow, this is like being a police officer, or like war.' You literally going out to do your job every day knowing something could happen. Something can happen to you verbally from the press bashing you. Something can happen to you from people not like you anymore, or you can actually slip on that stage. But it's like we walking this tight rope and fighting for creativity, and fighting for ideas, and fighting for thought."

He's readin' a lot now. He's like Nas now. It's like the 1st days in your philosophy Class when you hear about Socrates,Plato & all. If u don't shoot it out to the public it will kill u. Only problem is he can't control the knowledge he's acquirin'. He good thou'.

It's a risk for everybody out here going to work whatever they do. I understand what he's saying in reference to what he does b/c he's in the public eye but really come back down to earth. I agree with you @Vinny Vindetta.
