It's been a very busy week for award-winning rapper Kanye West and South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson (R). One suffered a very public case of political Tourette's during a joint session of Congress while the other's bout with verbal diarrhea occurred on-stage Sunday night at the MTV Video Awards. And now both blabbermouths will team on West's new album entitled "Wilson & West: Fuck All-A Y'all." The album includes a song the two are co-writing, "Da Obama Drama," about the Congressman's "You Lie!" outburst during the president's health-care-reform address in the United States House Chamber.
West outdid his uber-narcissistic, foot-in-mouthed-diseased self Sunday by rushing the stage and grabbing the mike from a stunned teen pop sensation Taylor Swift, during her acceptance speech, to imply that fellow nominee Beyonce, who made "one of the best videos of all time," got robbed.
But the rapper, an outspoken black artist and Obama supporter, said he respected what Wilson did even though he doesn't agree with him:
"Yo, crackaz got balls! My boy's just representin' da hometown 'hood is all... for real."
And Wilson, the Confederate flag-supporting former aide to the late South Carolina 'Dixiecrat' (read: racist) segregation-supporting Sen. Strom Thurmond, oddly sang the rapper's praise in return:
"Kanye's a fine boy, and doing a job that's better suited for those people. He's a colored who knows his place....the recording studio."
The bizarre pairing took an even stranger turn when tennis champion Serena Williams warned the two that they better produce a hit with this album or "I swear to God I’m fucking taking this ball and shoving it down your fucking throat."
