Kanye West

“George Bush doesn’t care about Black people.” Those are the infamous words that made Kanye West a household name. The producer/rapper’s criticism of President George Bush’s handling of Hurricane Katrina during a nationally televised benefit concert in 2005 was an awe-inspiring act of fearlessness. From that point on the masses became familiar (hate it or love it) with that very audacity and impulsiveness that Kanye delivers in his music and in the flesh.
