Yes, that Kanye West, AKA the most arrogant, trifling ass in the world. He’s the guy who literally refers to himself as ‘Yeezus’ and plans to run for president in 2020. He recently threw a temper tantrum over white people “commenting on black music”. Ring a bell?
In a recent tweet, Kanye unintentionally outed himself as a filthy torrent fiend.
West was only trying to show off a YouTube video he was listening to, but eagle-eyed followers – including electronic music producer Deadmau5 – spotted a few tabs in the background of Safari that show West was browsing PirateBay download pages for torrents of a popular $200 plug-in called Serum developed by XferRecords.
Serum is a synthesizer plug-in popular among electronic music and hip-hop producers… Sure it’s possible Kanye could claim it wasn’t his computer and he was just using it, but it’s hard to imagine why a musician of Kanye’s caliber (and with his bank account) would be in any studio stealing copies of a $200 piece of software made by a small developer.
Really Kanye? You couldn’t afford to spend $200? That’s probably the cost of, what, the diamond-studded shoelaces on one of your sneakers?
Quick reminder: West recently threatened to sue Pirate Bay for giving users unfettered access to his latest irrelevant album – which was only available on Tidal, Jay-Z’s even more irrelevant music streaming service. The level of hypocrisy going on here is hilarious. He cries about getting the short end of the stick, yet here he is, screwing over an even littler guy! At least if he runs as a democrat in 2020 he’ll fit right in with the other candidates (see Man of the People? Bernie Sanders Caught Red Handed Funneling Campaign Funds).
I know, I know. Nobody’s perfect. Apparently not even Yeezy himself. Oh, and before any rude white people start judging (myself included), I kindly ask you to consider this token of Kanye wisdom.
I love love love white people but you don't understand what it means to be the great grandson of ex slaves and make it this far.

Hey Kanye, what about if you’re kind of white but look black? No, I’m not talking about Shaun King…
