It’s A Celebration, Snitches!

June 06, 2007

The occasion of the 30th birthday of Mr Kanye West made half of us happy (the handful of prodigal FADER staffers under-30) and half of us blue (the geriatric editors pushing 30-plus). While most of us probably won’t ever record a hit record or actually rap successfully in our own words, in English, we still look to Kanyeezy as part of the family: the golden boychild done good and a
yardstick by which we measure ourselves
. Given that, we’re more than elated to eat cake and drink champagne tomorrow night in honor of the Louis Vuitton Don, and you can bet your butt we’re holding on to our collector’s item Murakami-designed invite for, like, foreverever. If the postman didn’t swing by with one for you, fear not because the good folks at All Hip-Hop Dot Com are sponsoring a
to fly you to New York to attend the fete. All you have to do is answer three simple questions! See you at the party—we’ll be the ones circling the Rhymefest piñata and looking for fallen candy!
