his haters want to think of him as a pop artist, but if pop were more like him then i think the world would be a much better place. he is one of the few dudes in the mainstream who manages to be insanely experimental and bring influences from a large range of places and still be making head nodding bangers that manage to hit the charts. an okay rapper, good lyricist, great producer and manages to bring that all together to make some of the most game changing albums in pop-rap.

Say all you want about Kanye's ego, but he is a great artist. Look at how far he's come! He's been able to transform himself from a pop act to experimental hip hop. Remember "Stronger"? Yeah, I do too. But if you were to listen to Yeezus in 2004, you wouldn't believe your ears. This metamorphosis is something that a lot of legendary artists did sometime in their career: the Beatles, Beach Boys, David Bowie, Marvin Gaye, etc. Is he "the best?" I don't know about that, but he's a damn good artist, and it's a shame that people rate his performance based on how he acts off the stage.

An absolute TRAVESTY as both an artist and a human being. He is completely pathetic on any (and every) level. Such a shame that so much money and time goes into promoting this waste of oxygen.

Oh wow, and here I thought the members of discogs were above whining about award shows. Kanye's a really talented producer and listenable rapper, whom no matter how much people wish wasn't true, happens to be one of the biggest creative forces of the 21st century. Think I'm over selling it? Well to bad, I think he's awesome and could care less about his media portrayal.

EDIT: When I say most creative, I mean popularity wise. He's been able to do all sorts of stuff and still be "Mainstream". Just look at Yeezus, industrial rap was not the style of rap I thought I'd here on the radio, pretty impressive

This man would be wise to learn what "respect" truly means before bandying the word about in such a frivolous manner.

Quite possibly the worst artist (if you even want to call him that) out there today. Talentless waste of space. He also has a terrible voice and his so called rapping is just plain horrendous.

Kanye West has always been someone that I have has mixed feelings about. But all I know, is one thing about him is that he is a brilliant producer. His productions to his work are phenomenal. Click on the little play button on the video to the right of you and listen to it. "Late" is a perfect example of what I have to say about him. Is that not a beautifully crafted piece of production work. Let's be honest; it's brilliant! It is filled with loads of emotion that tear you from the inside. That's what I call good production. But you see, this song also proves my other point; his lyrical flow is as whack as no one's business. I actually don't blame Roc-A-Fella for wanting him to JUST be a producer. Because he is a horrible rapper; but his production is one thing I have to say about him. Another problem of Kanye West, is how many whack artists he collaborates with. Just to name a few: Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Young Jeezy, Paul Wall, etc.

So basically, if you can get past Kanye West's horrible singing and rapping, then he is a great artist. But if you just can't, he pretty much sucks and he's a sellout. Let's put it at that.
