Kanye West's New Song is Genius

For those of you who don’t know, Kanye West released a new song this week and a lot of people are upset about it. It’s called “Lift Yourself”, but most people are calling it “Woop Diddy Scoop” or “Scoop Poop” or “Oh my god what is this”. Personally I love the song so I decided... Read more »
