Kanye West Gets Conceptual All Up On His Blog

Kanye launched a new blog last week, and it ain't so easy on the eyes. I guess the new concept shouldn't come as a complete surprise. After all, Kanye is really good at doing what people least expect him to do. The first thing you see on the page is a picture of a section of Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam, which can be found on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Directly underneath it is a block of capitalized text, something that's seldom seen outside of modern art museums. I can just hear the jokes starting to form: "Ima let you finish and all, but Kanye's blog is one of the best blogs of all time."
