“Kanye’s a f**king idiot”, says Blur’s Graham Coxon


Kanye West has more than his fair share of haters, and here’s another to add to the list…

Blur’s Graham Coxon has called the rapper “a f***ing idiot” in a new interview.

The guitarist was asked what he thought of the hitmaker by The Guardian, to which he replied: “He’s a f***ing idiot, isn’t he? Does he even make his own albums?”


“All I hear is a loop starting, some bloke starts to sing or rap, and the loop finishes. There’s no shape to this stuff. And the lyrics just seem to be idiotic.”


Coxon thinks laziness is one of the problems with modern music: “People aren’t interested in learning instruments and putting effort and time into it. They want it immediately. It’s McDonalds, isn’t it? It’s convenient.”

We look forward to the collaboration.
