Dear Kanye,



It's understandable that you were upset. I mean, after all, you're a famous 'musician' and everything. You spent a lot of time on the track "Tell Everybody That You Know," and it must have been pretty infuriating to hear how much better it was after I spent 5 hours remixing it. After all that beef with 50 Cent, you probably still feel a little defensive, not to mention self-conscious about your 'singing.'

But what about my feelings? It was mean of you to send your e-henchmen after me, and take down my remix from multiple Web sites (including this blog). You could have just emailed me! I wasn't trying to hurt your feelings, I was just making the song better! For everyone!

Now that you get paid thousands of dollars to 'perform' it seems you've forgotten what it was like back in 'the day' when you were swiping samples and pushing the limits (assuming you were ever cutting-edge enough to do so).

I hope we can still be friends, Kanye. I would hate for this to turn into some kind of prolonged, media-driven feud.

Love,

Dan B

"It's our responsibility as musicians to keep pushing each other," West said. "We will be the new Beatles, the new (Jimi) Hendrix. I want to be Elvis."

-Kanyelvis at last night's AMAs...I guess "pushing each other" is a highly subjective concept, especially to someone who's recently been sued for infringing on someone's copyright

I third that request to repost pic. In the words of Flava Flave, "you can't copyright beats!" Obsolescence is inevitable for Mr. Kanye, too bad he can't be Elvis. But you, BANG, WHY DOES THE MEDIA HATE YOU?
