As we told you earlier, Kanye West just joined twitter today. The internet is a funny place. Everything moves at a frentic pace, things are consumed and disposed of in hours, etc. The net never sleeps. Sometimes an image or pop culture moment is so funny or absurd that it inspires a host of parodies and discussion, and becomes bigger than the moment. Kanye is definitely no stranger to the net, seeing as he’s run his own blog for a few years now, but there’s some stuff he needs to be up on now that he’s joined twitter (again). Here are some of the best hip-hop internet memes and catchphrases of all time… OF ALL TIME!! Kanye definitely needs to know these.
