We Not Playing: The Poetry of Kanye West

The Grammys

If they want real artists to keep
coming back
they need to stop playing

with us.
We ain't gonna play
with them
no more.

Because what happens
is when you keep on
diminishing
art

and not respecting
the craft

and
smacking people
in
the face...

you're
disrespectful

to inspiration. And
we
as
musicians
have to inspire
people

who go to work every day...

Like no,
we not playing
with them no more.
