Kanye West Cites Nietzsche


Last year Kanye West was sued in Federal Court by a music producer who claimed Kanye stole the hit song "Stronger" from him.

The case was dismissed but the guy appealed and in his deposition on Friday Kanye argued that he copied 19th- century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, not Vincent Peters from the south side of Chicago...

Vincent Peters, known professionally as Vincent P claims he gave Kanye's business manager, John Monopoly, a copy of his song, also called "Stronger", in 2006 and seven months later Kanye released his version of "Stronger".

Both songs contain variations of Nietzsche's quote "What does not kill me, makes me stronger", both rhymed stronger with wronger and both make reference to model Kate Moss.

However, at Friday's hearing Kanye's lawyers called it ludicrous for Vincent to make copyright claims on rap lyrics derived from Nietzsche saying,
"it would create a dangerously low threshold for establishing copyright protection over otherwise commonplace words and phrases."

Am I trippin----or does Kanye have the ASHIEST mouth and the biggest chin you ever seen? He has one of those faces that's just screams "stomp on me"

sad that just cuz u dont like a person u go in on their personal appearance after being fucked up in a near death accident. ummm which didnt stop him from the launch his career his jaws were wired shut and he was rhyming and sparks were coming out of the mans mouth. talk about thru the worst of times he managed to be triumphant. so yea his mouth looks that way because of a car accident where he was nearly killed.

seems he isnt the only with a problem with his mouth @3:31 the whole world has one its just easier for people on here to say what they want cuz we are all anons lmao. its funny cuz people really act like they know these celebs and any mistakes they make they hate them yet any mistakes we make in our lives we want forgiveness and for people to get over them. how bout we all be held accountable for our mistakes and have someone hang them over our heads for the duration of our lives and careers! #letmeknowhowthatworksout4ya

Uhhh-Kanye...OOPs anon...Dont get it twisted...
Its everyday people who dont get a pass for their mistakes--NOT CELEBS! The people in my personal everyday life don't promote the Baphomet, whoring, and other ungodly nonsense to millions. Its not about past mistakes its about the here and NOW and what you continue to do! I lost SEVERAL family members---does that mean I am exempt from criticism? Obama himself called Kanye a jackass--perhaps he TOO should take into consideration that Kanye had his face broken and lost his mom. Right? Based on your endless copy and paste Kanye should be exempt from being picked on because of a 10-11 year old car accident and the death of his mom? Give me a break!

Apparently criticism doesnt bother him and it should not bother you either! Broken face or not, Kanye is still very much a narcissist and a jerk, my comment doesnt affect him in the slightest. The question is....why does it bother you?

Nietzsche, huh?

Very slick, Mr. West.

People get into car accidents and lose their mothers EVERYDAY. Yet they don't go around disrespecting others, wear satanic clothing, promote selling your soul, pick up random whores and make them celebrities and get inspired by illuminati devil freemasons (nietzsche)
You're lucky his ashy ass, huge mug is all I talked about!

You don't know what the Fuck People are going through. You only know about your own shit and the shit people share w you. Maybe because you live in a hidden corner of the world somewhere and that's why you don't meet many disrespectful people, but I live in a big ass city and witness people being disrespectful ALL THE DAMN TIME. I can't say they are selling Satan shit but hell I cant hole heartedly say that abt KW either, but the way I have seen average ppl w minor influence behave one would think they sold their soul.

Well, we all know Kanye hangs around two of the biggest thieves and frauds in the business. Jay and Beyonce Carter. And we all can see just how much in love he is with them. So it is very possible that Kanye stole someone else's work. As the saying goes....Birds of a feather flock together. Kanye has changed so much since he began hanging out with those demons.

Move along people nothing to see here, just typical Roc Nation behavior.

Nietzsches observations of the herd are just as true today as they are 130 years ago. shocking stupidity, and shocking wills to ignorance.
