Kanye feels so real

Kanye West loves his work, you know. And do you know why? Because he's real, dammit. And he's not just real, he's further along the scale of real than anyone:

"I feel like my lyrics are, if not THE, then equal to, the realest lyrics out," he says. "I connected with so many people without talkin' about guns and drugs. ... It's harder to go to work 365 days than shoot a person in one day."

Presumably he means "harder" in the "not wearing a shirt in cold weather" sense rather than difficult, as it's hardly news that shooting a bloke (which, as Phil Oakey pointed out, takes seconds) isn't quite as involved as an EU-regulation defying 365 day shift.
