From TorkilSkorgen 02/26/2017 03:02
You either love him or hate him. Some people hate him with passion and think he's a horrible artist, while others think he's a misunderstood genius and the best artist ever. I'm not really any of the extremes. I think his 2000's albums (especially The College Dropout and Late Registration) are pretty good, though he definitely reached his peak with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. But since then the quality seems to have gone down. Yeezus and The Life Of Pablo were honestly disappointing (though I think The Life Of Pablo is better than Yeezus). His lyrics especially has been dummed down recently. His unlikable persona doesn't help much either, but he seems to be very self aware, and embraces his douche persona to the full. He's a great producer too, and I especially likes the way he uses samples and autotune.

When it comes to music, I care about the music first and foremost and on that end, Kanye West is an excellent artist. Sure, he's not the best rapper/lyricist or anything, but he holds his own on the mic and is definitely one of the best producers out there.

The fact that he chooses to change his sound from album to album is admirable... the fact that he still manages to release a ton of great songs, while simultaneously expanding the scope of what hip-hop can sound like time and time again, is awe-inspiring.

A total game changer and inspiration to a generation. Really opened my eyes to the entire genre of hip hop. While some of his lyrical content is keeping me from giving him a perfect score, his production almost always makes up for it. He has my vote for one of the best discographies in music history.

As hard as he sucks as a person, he is without a doubt my favorite rapper. 7 great albums, 3 of which are perfect.

Kanye might be arrogant and quite the asshole, but as long as he keeps making great music (MBDTF) we'll allow it.

Kanye has been very inconsistent in his discography, but there is no doubt that he has a good amount of genius in him, making MBDTF, College Dropout, Yeezus, and Graduation. Probably the best producer currently for rap, but doesn't have a stable discography in order to make him the greatest right now.
