“Yet I had come this far, still looking like Milhouse and sounding like Kermit the Frog.”
Jensen Karp, Kanye West Owes Me $300: And Other True Stories from a White Rapper Who Almost Made It Big

“An easy way to see the difference between that style and ours is to listen to a Marky Mark interview, then compare it to an interview with Mark Wahlberg. Or listen to an Iggy Azalea song, then imagine the voice she uses when she gets pulled over by cops.”
Jensen Karp, Kanye West Owes Me $300: And Other True Stories from a White Rapper Who Almost Made It Big

“And in turn, Kanye was treated like the ugly stepchild of Baseline Studios. He was too eager and too dorky, lacking the restraint and tough-guy persona that ruled rap music and, more specifically, New York City, for decades.”
Jensen Karp, Kanye West Owes Me $300: And Other True Stories from a White Rapper Who Almost Made It Big
