Kanye West’s Voice on Kris Jenner’s Show Has Me Perplexed
We all know that the Kanye West of now is a completely different man from the Late Registration and College Dropout Kanye. We need to get used to this version of him putting out Yeezus. He’s angrier, edgier, and wayyy less relatable. And he’s dating Kim Kardashian. And he’s a father. Things done changed!
But how much have they changed? VERY. There’s been promos about Kanye’s appearance on Kris Jenner’s show because he’s supposed to show his daughter, North West, to the public for the first time. Honestly, I think that’s the only reason folks want to watch. I ain’t gon lie. I wanna see her too, just not enough to sit through an entire interview with Kanye and his Not Yet Mom in Law.
I did, however, see a clip of the Jenner-West sit down and I was hella perplexed as I watched and listened. See the 1-minute segment below so you can see why.
Ummmm… is it me or does Kanye West sound like he’s never sounded before? What is this super prim and proper voice coming out of him? When did his voice get so high pitched? Who is this strangerbish in Mr. West’s body?
This is WEIRD as hell. Am I tripping? I mean, what he’s saying about loving Kim is cute and stuff but THIS VOICE! What is that? This ain’t the Kanye we’ve known in ANY way. He is so different and it’s odd. The voice coming from his mouth ain’t what it used to be. What happened??
Don’t believe me, just watch his speech from 2008 GRammy Awards and tell me that man on Kris Jenner’s show sounds the same.
SEE?!?! He sounds completely different! Voice, tone, inflections, pitch, dialect. EVerything. I get code-switching but this ain’t it. He’s talking like he’s in a sketch comedy skit that only he knows about. What happened to this SWAGU? Now he sounds like he’s supposed to be leaving stuff to Beaver. DAFUQUE?? Chile… BYE!
I miss old Kanye. Because everything he does now makes me hit him with the blank stare.
Chile… womp. Anywho, what do y’all think about this NEW NEW Kanye with the WASP voice?
