*Kanye West has pissed off some residents of New York City with plans to stage a free concert in front of the iconic Flatiron building as part of NBA All-Star Weekend.

The rapper is set to headline a gig at the Flatiron Pedestrian Plaza in Manhattan on Friday the 13th, but plans to build a large stage and close off roads around the area is not going over well with the local.

Members of a community group sent a letter to Mayor Bill de Blasio to oppose the concert. Nick Athanail of Community Board 5 tells 7online.com: “We’re concerned with the precedence that this sets… We understand events like this make a lot of money for the city, but we think they need to be planned in a rational way. And we think public input is required for that.”

Emil Lissauer, a spokesman for New York City’s events office, tells the New York Post, “The city is committed to ensuring safety at all events while minimizing traffic disruption and impact on local residents.”

Also mad at Kanye…Brandon Browner of the New England Patriots, who called the rapper a “sucka” and said he would’ve beaten his ass if he were Beck.

Browner is reacting to West’s suggestion that Beck should give his Album of the Year Grammy award to Beyonce, then later ranted that the Grammy voters have “disrespected artistry” by choosing Beck over Bey.

“Kanye West is a sucka! Everybody don’t listen to Beyonce,” Browner said, according to TMZ. “Second time he tried to steal somebody shine. First time it was a 15 yr old girl.”

He continued, “Kanye try and play that I’m weird because of my genius. Non of the greats pull that stupid ish. Meaning Marley, Mike Jack, Tupac, Jayz etc.”

“Peep who he tried Beck and Taylor Swift. Real tough guy. If only I could’ve been Beck for one night. Kanye would be rapping thru the wire.”

      I am waiting for the next time he pulls something like that, he might get his ass kicedk the next time. He would never have said that to a black person if they had won. Beyoncé should be the one who does it. Wonder how she feels about the whole situation.

      He’s just another black entertainer sending the wrong messages to many youth in the black community. I don’t see anything positive about him as a person or an entertainer. His genius equates to pure ignorance.

      Actually, people do get it. Dumbye is where he is, not because of any genius gene he has. He is where he is because our standard for musical excellence and decency has been lowered to the point of no return. Stevie Wonder is genius. Prince is genius. BB King is genius. Andrea Bocelli is genius. Dumbye is a crapper who, without auto tune wouldn’t know what to do with himself, and who has hoodwinked a whole generation of dunderheads that what he does is special. He declared himself a genius and a god, and some people drank the Kool Aid. Seems like you are one of those people.

    I want to kiss Brandon Browner and give him whatever he wants just for speaking out against this kanye clown; enough people looking at a Black man in a negative light if not shooting them dead for nothing, and this fool gets on global TV for at least the third time that I’ve witnessed to act colored and disgrace every other Black man doing it right – if they let this idiot do a show anywhere, free or otherwise, show up and boo his ass back to wherever he came from – I second the fact that everybody don’t listen to beyonce; lots of people prefer real vocal talent, I’m not the only one and I know it – I understand if kanye is still grieving the tragic loss of his mother, most likely without the therapy he obviously so desperately needs, and now for God’s sake he’s surrounded by the kartrashians, more madness, and while I feel sorry for the baby, I do not excuse him for what he has done, and if only the whitecoats can show up at the next event where kanye walks in and hit him up with some Demerol, Thorazine, something, and take him to a facility, that’s better than watching him get beat up because that’s what’s gonna happen, as we can see I’m not the only one sick of him … and who called him a genius anyway; I have heard him and that’s why I don’t understand what the first Grammy they gave him was for and I swore the 21 was a misprint, I know rap ain’t what it used to be but that’s sad … and he wants to be Jesus; don’t say he does not need professional help …

    I seriously believe Kanye is mentally ill. Kim probably sense it too and is just trying to deal with him because of the child and he opens doors for her and her family.

    Brandon and rj, both of you said it better than I EVER would have. I can’t wait for the morning, noon or night , that someone comes to lay his out. His mother dying has always been people’s excuse for him acting a fool. He’s a genius at being an ass-hole. . . . No real talent there. I wish they’d ban him but, I laugh when I read that he doesn’t get an award.

** FEATURED STORY **

Chas Bronxson’s ‘Dear Beyoncé’ Hilariously Highlights the Perils of A Super ‘Stan’ / WATCH

Published

on

Chas Bronxson1

*Written by Chas Bronxson, a songwriter and podcast curator on Chuck D’s Rapstation Network, Anthem Tongue Radio; “Dear Beyoncé” is a harmonic and humorous look at the bygone era of ‘stans’ in a catchy musical tribute to Beyoncé.

A melodic R&B earworm of a song presents a hilarious glimpse into an obsessed character whose letter to Bey is colorfully played out in a musical short that won Best Music Video at the 2018 Annual Poconos Film Festival.

The song originated in 2011 when composer and songwriter Chas Bronxson was listening to an old sample by a rapper named Justin Warfield called “Season of the Vic.” He randomly said, ‘Dear Beyonce’ and rhymed it with ‘what I’m say...’ under the track and ran with it, creating a harmonic and humorous twist on the modern ‘stan’. The song and video sat for years as Bronxson focused on his label; producing other artists such as young Haley Smith (“I Miss My Daddy”) and developing his own projects.

Fast-forward. Seeing the variety of TikTok videos and comedic, music-laced spoofs taking off all over the internet during the Pandemic Shutdown, he decided the creativity of “Dear Beyoncé” would find a current audience. As well, with so many internet and self-made social media celebrities, he realized the age of the superstars and the sometimes rabid fan bases that followed them was declining. He understood that while fame is relative and seemingly everywhere, for some, there’s always that superfan. He released the video on September, 4th, 2020 (Beyoncé’s birthday).

Posting the video on his social media platforms, the short immediately garnered well over half a million views, 14,000 likes, and over 500 enthusiastic comments and shares within the first few days of the post. This encouraged Bronxson to release a free download of the radio edit of the song on his website Chasbronxson.com.

For the video, he offered his turn at humor and hi-jinx stating, “A flat music video tribute would be boring to people who aren’t into Beyoncé, even though the tune itself can be appreciated by anybody.” For music lovers in general, the forthcoming EP offers jazz, instrumental, acapella, afrobeat mix, and the uncut “Letter to Beyoncé.” Overall, the musicianship composition and songwriting skills stand out throughout the various versions of the song.

True Beyoncé fans who catch the ‘audio easter eggs’ with subtle Beyoncé references of over 20 of her songs and films win a cash prize. Meanwhile, in anticipation of Bronxson’s upcoming EP, he is offering a free download of the song on his website Chasbronxson.com.

*Cardi B fired back at Wiz Khalifa’s recent Twitter Q&A about the 2021 Grammy nominations.

Wiz made time earlier this week to answer questions about the awards show and how many (often Black) artists are snubbed. 

“As a Grammy nominated artist I know how it feels. N***as always think its unfair until they get their turn,” he wrote. “Just keep workin and that time’ll come through … I felt like I got throughly robbed for ‘See You Again.’ Haven’t been bacc since, but when tha time comes ima have a joint rolled and dope ass speech ready. And it’s Taylor Gang Or Die.”

One fan responded by noting that the Recording Academy doesn’t know “sh*t about music,” because Cardi is a Grammy winner, while Nicki Minaj is not. Wiz  responded: “Most self made artists have this problem.”

Cardi responded to Wiz’s remarks by posting a screenshot a DM he sent her four years ago, in which he congratulated her on her emerging success.

She went to question why he was entertaining “tweets that pit successful women against each other.”
