Kanye West graffiti in Union Square

The above graffiti—a reference to this thing, in case you’ve spent the last two years living under a Persian rug with cherub imagery—was spotted by NYC The Blog on a wall near Union Square. Kanye says:

Yo I’m really happy for your and Imma let you finish but uh…what you’re doing is graffiti writing. Every five year old with a sense of awareness has mastered the art of writing his/her name. So start using your talent for street art. Like this kid did.

Of course, by graffiti/street art standards, this is an unusually polite interruption.
