The dangers of letting Kobe in the studio

by

4 comments

Ever since he joined Twitter a few weeks back, Kanye West has kept writers like myself on the edge of our seats for what he'll say next.

Completely ignoring his back and forth with Justin Bieber, what stood out to me from his feed this weekend was a Twitpic he posted of himself, rapper Mos Def, producer Swizz Beatz and NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, in the studio working on the remix to his latest single, "Power."

Look, I can completely understand why Kobe Bryant's views on power and success may be pertinent to a song about power but has Ye forgetten about Kobe Bryant jeopardizing the careers of Nas and Beanie Sigel with his, thankfully, never released album K.O.B.E.

See, for everything Kobe knows about winning championship, he knows equally as little about making quality music. What could he possibly bring to that scenario? Maybe suggest Kanye rap a verse in Italian like he did. Or maybe suggest Tyra Banks for the hook? Say what you want about Shaquille O'Neal's rap career but he at least went platinum AND had a song with Biggie that was actually dope. And in terms of power, who's more powerful than a 7'3, 300+ pound human being nicknamed The Diesel?

Who doesn't belong?
