“He Made Graduation” memes and comments have skyrocketed on TikTok after Kanye’s recent controversies.
The hashtag #kanyewest has over 19 billion views on TikTok.
In this article, you’ll learn the meaning of He Made Graduation on TikTok and Kanye West memes about it.
What does He Made Graduation mean?
He Made Graduation refers to Graduation, the album that Kanye West made and released on September 11, 2007.
Fans use the phrase to defend Kanye from his controversies.
The idea is that the making of Graduation (album) outweighs every controversial thing that he’s ever said.
The album includes songs like “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”, “Stronger”, and “Good Life”.
It’s inspired by indie rock, house music, and stadium tours.
Stronger is the most popular single in the album—on YouTube, the music video got over 420 million views.
During the first week of sales, the album sold over 950k copies and became number one on the US Billboard 200.
Kanye earned his third Grammy Award for Best Rap Album and his third nomination for Album of the Year.
Rolling Stone and USA Today listed Graduation as one of the best albums of 2007.
He Made Graduation comments are prevalent on TikTok because of Kanye’s recurring controversies.
In 2018, he said that slavery is a choice and more recently, he denounced the BLM movement as a scam and made several anti-Semitic remarks in various interviews and on Twitter.
But of course, without context—what Kanye said might seem illogical and disagreeable.
His “slavery is a choice” remark actually refers to society being “mentally in prison” (source: The full interview with TMZ).
On the other hand, BLM misused part of their donations for other purposes like acquiring real estate for transgender people and helping s*x workers instead of black people (source: The Greatest Lie Ever Sold).
Even more recently, Kanye said that he loves everyone and that every person is of value—including Hitler.
Parts of the interview went viral on social media and Kanye West was banned on Twitter after posting a Raëlian symbol (a swastika inside of a Star of David).
