Leonard Cohen has posthumously called out alleged genius Kanye West with a poem he wrote before his 2016 death called “Kanye West Is Not Picasso.” The poem appears in Cohen’s new book of poetry, The Flame, and is going viral on Twitter after Americana artist Amanda Shires tweeted out the poem early Thursday. “Kanye West is not Picasso. I am Picasso. Kanye West is not Edison. I am Edison. I am Tesla,” the poem begins. Cohen then continues, “JAY-Z is not the Dylan of anything. I am the Dylan of anything. I am the Kanye West of Kanye West. The Kanye West of the great bogus shift of bulls**t culture.” Honestly, it sounds like something Kanye West would write.
