I don’t really like anything about Kanye West but his ability to trick people into thinking they have purchased something of value is unparalleled. Kanye released a plain white t-shirt that costs $120 and they sold out. With that kind of mark up I believe Kanye has not chosen the correct career. Kanye shouldn’t be rapping, Kanye should be coercing people on the midway to throw darts at balloons to win a “Cliffhanger” collectible plate or to toss rings over bottles to win over sized stuffed animals made by Chinese children. With his ability to manipulate people into making such foolish purchases I seriously believe Kanye could have been the first billionaire carnival worker. Kanye West is the world’s greatest carny and we are all his rubes.
