SOHH Whatcha Think: What Caused Kanye West's Twitter Rant + Who Tried To Rob Mike Tyson?!?
Thursday, Jan 5, 2012 8:00AM
After seeing 50 drop that "I don't think I'mma live much longer" tweet recently, I should have known Kanye West, his former "nemesis," would eventually follow suit. And while Mr. West didn't predict his own death, he did go on a 3-hour Twitter rant in which the music icon discussed nearly everything under the sun.
Kanye is making boss type moves, apparently. During his tweet-fest that began late last night, the rapper even revealed he had been asked to play an interesting role in the upcoming "The Jetsons" movie.
During the course of his frantic tweeting, West also announced that he was in talks to become the creative director of "The Jetsons" movie, based off the popular 1960s futuristic animated TV show of the same name. "I was just discussing becoming the creative director for the 'Jetson' movie and someone on the call yelled out.. you should do a Jetsons tour!," West tweeted.(NY Times)
Ok cool. Cool. I remember you had some Jetsons paintings in your crib in that "Heartless" video (which by the way, is something only an artist could get away with, chicks ain't checkin' for grown a** men with regular jobs that have cartoon characters on their wall. That sh*t ain't ordinary, bruh). But things got a little odd when he discussed what could possibly be compared to comic book super-villain ensemble The Legion of Doom.
Indeed, sources tell THR that West is looking to build a sort of "Board of Directors" to handle his business dealings going forward. In his tweets, West writes of wanting to "put creatives in a room together with like minds that are all waaaay [sic] doper than me." Referencing his fashion line DONDA, West writes that he's looking to assemble "a team of architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, AnRs, writers, publicist, social media experts... app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionist ... doctors, scientist,teachers."(The Hollywood Reporter)
Yeezy I respect your artistic mind, but one big room fulla dudes? Throw in a basketball and now you are kinda sounding like this guy ...
But anyway ... Yo, someone tried to rob Iron Mike Tyson. According to reports, a burglar crept up in Mike's swanky hotel room, looking for the come up. Luckily Iron Mike was in bed, sleeping like a baby.
A tip-toeing intruder has been dubbed the world's bravest (or most stupid) burglar - after he broke into Mike Tyson's hotel room as the ex-boxer was sleeping. The raider fled the suite at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas after Iron Mike woke to the sound of rustling. It was a lucky escape for the thief, who could have been on the end of Tyson's powerful right hook had the heavyweight been fully alert.(The Daily Mail)
That sh*t cray. How should Mike handle this? When faced with tough decisions, I like to seek the counsel of actress Loretta Devine; she plays everyone's mama, so she always knows just what to do.
