Yeezy Taught Us: The 10 Things We've Learned From Kanye West In 2013

by Eddie Cuffin

2013 is officially the year of the Yeezus. Kanye has blessed his fans with a new album. Not every song is a club banger or lyrical masterpiece, but the production is just wow. We haven't heard an album that puts together so many various samples into one cohesive work.

It has been an eventful year for Kanye to say the least, his album dropped and his celebrity girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, gave birth. It was more of a slip and slide than traditional labor, but who cares -- it's not our baby anyway. It is almost impossible for Kanye to stay out of the headlines.

Kanye's year has been a significant one and there are many lessons we can take away from this man. Here are the 10 things we learned from Kanye in 2013:

It's perfectly fine to name your child after a compass direction.

Recently the A-list couple, Kanye and Kim Kardashian, added a new addition to the family: a baby girl. This baby girl received quite some attention and had already headlined many publications before even being conscious. The only thing left to do was to give her an outrageous name and, voilà, we have the perfect media story in the works.

There were many rumors as to what the name of the baby would be, but a couple a days after the birth, Kanye and Kim shocked the world with the name they chose. Every parent wants to set their children on the right path, but it looks like Kanye's kid has only one direction to go and that's straight to the top (and a little to the left). North West is the official name of the baby, some people like it -- but we feel they should've gone in a different direction.

No one should be forced to have sex with their pregnant girlfriend, that's what Canadian models are for.

While your girlfriend or wife is pregnant, it is perfectly okay to be by her side and take care of her. However there comes a time when a man's needs just kick in. No one wants to be railing out their pregnant girlfriend while their unborn child is properly prepping itself in the womb.

I mean just imagine all the wild noises that baby will hear, also it's hard to picture having your dick face to face with your unborn child. Kanye showed us that if you need to get the job done while letting your child grow unscarred, it's best if you find yourself a Canadian model.

It's better to be a d*ck than a swallower.

Who the hell wants to be known as a swallower? There are plenty of sheep in this world and as we move more toward a more materialistic environment, the flock seems to be growing in number. It's time you stopped worrying about what the crowd is doing and start realizing that it is time for you to be a leader.

Set yourself apart from everyone, do what truly makes you happy and don't worry about the opinions of others. Everyone is different and everyone likes what they like, there's no need to fit in just so people will accept you. You'll end up being a two dimensional stiff with nothing productive to offer this world.

'Make sure you have sweet and sour sauce handy when eating Asian pussy.'

It's 2013 and it's time you start eating the box. We men need to step up to the plate and realize it's not only about getting our own. Why not have our partner get hers as well? If you want head, then recognize it's time you give to get. Don't be selfish, let her get hers no matter what it takes -- so add seasoning if you need to. What's better than adding some sweet and sour sauce on that Asian pussy?

Chief Keef can't handle his liquor, but these b*itches can't handle him.

We live in a superficial world where money and fame open doors. Chief Keef isn't old enough to drink, yet his new found fame has provided him with plenty of opportunities. In particular, with women as you don't have to be old enough to drink to get girls -- all you need is a little catchy hook and a music video to go along with it.

Don't be the person to have a $2K purse with nothing in it.

This is particularly true for our generation, we are infatuated with showing off our wealth. This causes us to buy things we don't need with the money we don't have. Some people are so superficial that they only judge you by the brands that you wear, these shallow people are influencing others to follow in their paths.

Such actions lead to people buying things they cannot truly afford, just to show off or to prove to people that they are part of the 'in' crowd. What's the point of having a $2K purse that's empty anyway?

Keep it 300 because it's 3 times as real as keeping it 100.

People always tell you to keep it 100, but this is clearly not enough for Kanye. It's time to step our games up and keep it 300. Kanye is telling us that we need to bring ourselves to a new level in order to further develop as humans. Why not keep it 300? If you keep it 300, then you're keeping it like the Romans, with 300 b*itches -- so bring on the Trojans and enjoy.

It's perfectly fine to go on a Twitter rant once in a while.

Sometimes we go long periods of time without expressing ourselves and this can be detrimental, as it leads to a lot of pent up emotions. Kanye has told us that there is no better way to express your feelings than by going on a Twitter rant. Why not express all that bothers you at one time once in a while?

This way no one will expect it and when it does come, people will actually listen. So keep those thoughts inside and then just explode all over Twitter and let the world know why you're mad.

Don't rock 'Forever 21' if you just turned 30.

We all can't be young forever and this is something we struggle with on a daily basis. No one looks forward to getting old and frail, yet it is a natural part of life, so just accept it. Kanye is telling us to act our age and embrace it. There is a problem if you are 30-years-old and still partying in the club on a Thursday. Just remember as you order that bottle of champagne, you don't look less thirsty. It's time you settle down and figure out what you truly want to do with your life.

One good girl is worth a thousand b*tches.

Kanye is just reiterating the wise words of quality over quantity. What's the point of having over a thousand girls if none of them are up to par with your true standards? Don't sell yourself short and remember that you will get what you deserve. Work hard and don't be so thirsty for the first girl you see. Maybe Kanye should've taken this advice himself, as his girl isn't the best pick up -- I mean she did become famous from a home video.
