I can't take Charlamagne's thoughts so seriously because it's not like this album is a conscious/message album. It's alternative hip hop under a pop music umbrella. It's music meant to have fun with. Kanye is aware of every little thing he says in his songs, why not try to slip some medicine in the candy I can't be mad at that.
I mean...there are three major record labels and their names are UNIVERSAL, SONY, and WARNER. You can't really even try to say something meaningful in your art as a MAJOR LABEL artist without being in some way connected to corporate America. So I can't really fault someone like Kanye as some sorta hypocrite.
