Rock and roll hall of famer calls out kanye west (again) for being a ‘poser’

David Crosby is celebrated musician, songwriter and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. He played and sang on some of the most acclaimed albums of the 1960s and ’70s with his bands The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash (and occasionally Young). But now, he’s making headlines for being kind of a grump.

In an interview with HuffPost Live on Friday (June 26), Crosby was asked about remarks he made about Kanye West on Twitter earlier this year, calling the musician “an idiot and a poser.”

Have his opinions on Yeezy changed in the past three months? Nope. Not even a little bit.

“Kanye West can’t write, sing or play, so I have trouble with him as anything but a poser,” Crosby said before dumping on Kanye’s production skills. “That means he sits in a chair while the engineer does the work.”

Ouch, man. It seems a bit unfair, considering the countless accolades that’ve been bestowed upon Yeezy during his 11-year ascendence to critical and commercial superstardom — so many that they need their own Wikipedia page, in fact. And sure, Kanye told the entire Glastonbury crowd Saturday night that he is the “greatest living rock star on the planet.”

But we’re inclined to agree with him. Don’t worry, ’Ye. We got your back.
