- Kanye West is sharing poems on his Instagram
- His Instagram has become a place of concern for many fans and friends of the rapper due to the content he posts
- West has recently come under fire for a music video he shared beheading Pete Davidson, his ex-wife's new boyfriend
Kanye West is causing more concern on his Instagram account, but this time the attacks aren't toward his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, who has recently been declared legally single.
Kanye West writes dark poem
Kanye West is making sure the world knows he's a true artist and is refusing to explain his art and letting it "speak for itself". The art in question this time is a dark poem that details his own death.
On Tuesday morning, the 44-year-old rapper posted the poem to his Instagram page, which raised some red flags for his fans and followers.
West starts the poem, "No one wanted to tell me I was DEAD / And only people that would talk to me were in my head. No one wanted to tell me I was DEAD / Only people who loved me visit in their dreams instead."
The poem took an even darker poem when he writes the line, "I found out one day at the newsstand in purgatory there was a front-page article of my murderer's story. I was so surprised at what it said / This info is for the living / And surprise… You’re DEAD."
Although it's clear there are some parallels between this poem and his messy divorce from Kim Kardashian, West captioned the photo, sharing that he wouldn't explain it.
"I feel already compromised that I have to justify my expression after over 20 years of art that I’ve contributed to the planet," he wrote. "Men not allowed to cry, celebrities not allowed to cry. I will not explain this new piece for the explanation destroys the mystery and magic of true love and puts it in a box that can be counted."
He went on to say that "art is subjective" and that "Someone’s truth can be another person's lie."
"We don’t all have to feel the same because we are not the same," he said.
This comes after West attacked Pete Davidson, Kardashian's new boyfriend, on his track "Eazy", on which he not only said he'd like to "Kick Pete Davidson's ass", but the music video that was released was problematic.
In the video, a claymation West beheads a claymation Davidson, but Kanye said the video was just "therapy" for him, and he was just utilizing his "freedom of speech".
He further defended himself and said, "Art is not a proxy for any ill or harm. Any suggestion otherwise about my art is false and mal intended."
