What happens when one of hip hop’s greatest and some silly little Indian kid from Georgia go head to head in an email/IM battle?
My little cousin Darwish, brother of Harris (whom someone of you may know from my standup) is quickly catching up to Harris in terms of ridiculousness. Last week, he finally discovered Kanye West’s music and went nuts. He started a firing off a ton of IMs:
Dar: Aziz Dar: Kanye West is ridiculous Dar: HAVE YOU EVER HEARD AMAZING??? Dar: IT REALLY IS AMAZING Aziz: Yeah, he’s great right? Dar: when he goes around bragging Dar: now I know why Dar: wow Dar: JUST WOW
10 minutes later…
Dar: aziz I think this is like the 10th time ive listened to amazing in a row Dar: i was just like browsing and I found it it Dar: and boom! my head was just auto bobbing Aziz: go download Flashing Lights, that’s probably my favorite Kanye song Dar: who’s someone else good? Aziz: You ever listened to any Wu Tang? Dar: no but i’ve heard of him Dar: he raps a lot about karate right?
Kanye knows of Harris and Darwish through my standup so I emailed him Darwish’s IMs.
woooow! new fans yeeeessss!!!! more people that don’t hate me
BUT 10 minutes late I received this from Darwish:
Dar: AZIZ Dar: FLASHING LIGHTS Dar; is straight rip off from a NeYo song Aziz: what? Aziz: kanye stole it?? Dar: uh… yeah Dar: omg Dar: Listen to “Miss Independent” by NeYo Dar: wats kanyes email? Aziz: what you want to email him? Dar: idk its pretty messed up Aziz: i’ll email him for you
I email Kanye :
Uh oh. You may have spoken to soon. I told him to get “Flashing Lights” and now he’s upset, he’s ACCUSING YOU OF JACKING BEATS!!! Do you care to respond???”
nooooooooooooooo! that song came out afterwards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I forwarded the response to Darwish:
Aziz: I think you owe Mr. West an apology! Dar: oh tell him his song was better anyways and ask if he likes Akon
Official Goal for 2009 - Get Darwish, Harris, and Kanye in the same room together. That would be the photo to top all photos.
