— Maya Angelou
- Kanye West from his new feature on “Sanctified”
This line is brilliant. Seriously. It’s such a good parallel.
- Ali was either loved or hated during his career. This is mainly because of his loudspoken nature and views that he would express without holding back. Nobody questioned his ability. Same with Kanye and his music.
- People now love Ali and admire his bravado and showmanship. Kanye hopes that people will come to respect his art, shows, visual effects, and general showmanship along with his music.
- Bit of a stretch:: Ali was vilified for years when he refused to fight in Vietnam. Now he’s celebrated for being brave.
Flat out, people love Ali’s bravado. They hate when Kanye does it.
