i like kanye west, so i obviously was paying attention tonight when he announced the title of his new album, "so help me god." i also lurk this kanye forum that has like one million plus members, so it caught my attention when they brought up that kanye had changed his soundcloud username from "kanyewest" to "sohelpmegod." it garnered a lot of attention, and people kept a close eye on it in hopes he'd upload a new song or the entire album. unfortunately, he ended up deleting the account, probably due to the fact that he was trying to keep it secret but it was quickly exposed.
how do i play into this? well, my buddy salty and i make joke rap songs, as i rap under the moniker "yung sizzle," mocking your everyday mainstream "swag-rapper." i have my own soundcloud and have uploaded a few of the joke songs to it only to get a total of 34 plays. me being the obvious genius that i am, i changed my soundcloud handle to "sohelpmegod" when kanye deleted his account. fans of his had been refreshing the page every second in hopes to find new music, but instead, they were eventually met with yung sizzle, the greatest rapper of all time.
i am now up to 1,200 plays and counting in about 5 hours and have become somewhat of a meme on the kanye forum and, to a lesser extent, twitter and 4chan. maybe elsewhere as well, but i haven't looked. but yeah, p funny times.
tl;dr trolled a bunch of kanye fans and now my long-lived joke is blowing up.
