Kanye West Coded Sexy Mario Level


Posted February 18, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

G4's Ty Colfax and I often argue over whether Kanye West is talented or not. Ty maintains that West is not talented at anything except producing. Ty says Kanye is a bad singer, a bad rapper, is full of himself for no reason, and dresses funny.

I think Kanye is pure genius. Truly. The weirder Kanye gets, the more awesome he becomes, like Sun Ra or George Clinton. I think West's latest album is some kind of strange work of genius that people will still listen to in 30 years. Today, however, I think I won The Kanye West Argument altogether: West says he coded something called Super Mario Bros.: The Penis Remix as a kid.

Here's the money quote from an interview in Details by way of E! Online:

"My game was very sexual. The main character was, like, a giant penis. It was like Mario Brothers, but the ghosts were, like, vaginas. Mind you, I'm 12 years old, and this is stuff 30-year-olds are programming. You'd have to draw in and program every little step—it literally took me all night to do a step, 'cause the penis, y'know, had little feet and eyes."


That's not all, though. Kanye also has a humorously high opinion of himself.

"I have, like, nuclear power, like a superhero, like Cyclops when he puts his glasses on."

"Put this in the magazine: There's nothing more to be said about music. I'm the f--king end-all, be-all of music.”

"Oh my God, I'm one of the greatest rappers in the world. I'll get on a track and completely ee-nihilate that track, I'll eat it and rip it in half. I wouldn't have to think of it.”

And there's so much more. Hit the link below for more Kanye awesomeness. But first, settle our argument: Is Kanye full of genius or full of fail?
