Face it, rappers enjoy being in the spotlight. Being lucky enough to reach stadium status and, having tens of thousands of people rapping your lyrics, is more than likely an intoxicating feeling, therefore releasing a more intimate performance to the public isn’t that far fetched an idea.
The Louis Vuitton Don isn’t really one to hide his body parts. A few years back he sent nudey flicks via Myspace and rapped about it in his “Runaway” single (“I sent this b-tch a picture of my d-ck. I don’t know what it is with females/But I’m not too good at that sh-t”), plus made mention of his new lady love’s claim to fame in “Clique” (“My girl a superstar all from a home movie”). When news of the leaks of two potential tapes came about, West wasn’t as eager to have his performance displayed for the world to see, and had his lawyer send out a cease and desist letter, to turn off any potential oppourtunists from cashing in on his conquests.
Like most moves in the Hip-Hop game, West isn’t the first –and probably—won’t be the last to produce a few freaky flicks.
