When you took the stage on Def Poetry Jam that night, and spit those genuine, heartfelt words, I witnessed your specialness that Damon had emphatically told me about.
Kanye has and will always be an artist who will always speak his mind. Even though he may come off as brash and cocky we have to ask, would he have made it this far without having that unwavering confidence in himself. His words and lyrics are always heartfelt by many and he has an uncanny ability to blend sounds, beats and lyrics to deliver truths that the masses can relate to. This special quality is the characteristic that Damon spoke so highly of and its the same quality that Russell is speaking of !!!
