Kanye West Refutes "Chanting" Allegations

Kanye West has used his blog to refute reports that he has taken to chanting "spiritual songs" in order to cleanse his space of "ghosts and spirits". Kanye allegedly utilised the practice to improve his singing, and presumably remove the need for an Auto-Tune.

Amongst the expensive trainers on his product-laden blog, Kanye spluttered: "OK NOW THIS IS JUST STUPID! DUDE, DID YOU READ MY BOOK?? DO I SEEM LIKE A CHANTER??!! DO I EVEN HAVE TIME TO BE SITTING AROUND DOING THAT??? WHY YOU GOTTA MESS UP MY VACATION WITH STUPID SHIT??? YOU COULD'VE WAITED TWO MORE DAYS... HAAHAAAAA"

The rapper also took the time to share his New Years Eve plans ("I JUST WANT TO CHILL, HOOP AND WATCH SOME MOVIES!") and revealed the reason for the consistent capitalisation of his messages: "I'M TYPING IN ALL CAPS CAUSE I'M LAZY NOT ANGRY!!!"

As ever, The Quietus encourages you to have a read of John Doran's repeated run-ins with the shy and retiring West.
