Quote of the Day: Kanye West

"I think white people are allowed to say bling. They are allowed to say old-skool black slang, like hottie and homie. If you say a slang word too early, it's like you're trying to be black. So as long as the slang is a little played out, you’re all good."
Hip hop star Kanye West, as quoted by the New York Times' “On Language” columnist, William Safire, Sunday June 10, 2007.

Kanye? He ain't street, he was never street. Slang is from the street, not just from black culture. He's a pop star. They may well have asked Tatyanna Ali.
