Kanye West Has Second Thoughts About Using Profanity

Hip Hop

Kanye West is always one to do what he wants when he wants, but the rapper recently questioned himself about the use of a certain word in one of his recent tracks.

Kanye admits that he is unsure whether the word “b*tch” is “acceptable” and edits his songs so he doesn’t offend people. The hip hop superstar claims that he occasionally reviews his lyrics to ensure there is no unnecessary swearing as he prefers to use expletives as a “tool” rather than just to shock.

To make sure he was doing the right thing he tweeted to his fans and friends for some advice.

He tweeted: “I will admit that I sometimes go back an omit cursing from my records. I like to use profanity as a tool and not a crutch.”

Kanye’s admission came after a fan questioned him on the use of the word b*tch.

He wrote: “Initially was offended by anyone questioning anything in my music.

“I usually never tweet questions but I struggle with this so here goes… Is the word B*TCH acceptable.”

“Is it acceptable for a man to call a woman a bitch even if it’s endearing.(sic)”

Kanye then tweeted a link to Lupe Fiasco’s new video for ‘B*tch Bad’ and added: “Is it ok to use bitch as long as we put BAD in front of it? Like you a BAD B*TCH. (sic)”

“I’m not tweeting to say what we need and what we don’t. I just wanted to think out loud with you guys today.”

As you may know by now Kanye made a track called ‘Perfect B*tch’ for his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, since then many have questioned the usage of his slang towards his lady or rather any women in general.

What do you guys think?
