Kanye West has been a polarizing figure in the media. Between his outburst about George W. to his Taylor Swift incident he has had a target on his back. While I don't agree with a lot of his antics the guy can flat out rap and produce great beats. I think his albums (minus 808s and Heartbreak) are absolute gems in the hip hop pantheon.
Music Board what do you think? Yes, No, He's All Right...

This guy is a piece of shite. He shows up to shows late, leaves early, never says anything to the crowd, not to mention the Taylor Swift thing. That was one of the most indecent, disrespectful, shitty things ive ever seen a musician do. I dont respect this nutsack in the least bit and i honestly could never make it past his obnoxious selfcenterdness to give his music a chance. I could never support such an egotistical sociopathic assclown.

Ever since i heard 'through the wire' ive been a huge fan. Ive seen thousands of shows in my life and his glow in the dark tour was one of the best shows ive ever seen. Sure the dudes an egomaniac and tends to be a douche, but that matters little to me.

I like him, but I do think he is wildly overrated by critics. The Pazz and Jop poll has named a Kanye album the best of the year of three separate occassions, more than any other artist (though the poll didn't start until 1972 or 73).
I actually like how incredibly arrogant he is. Larger than life isn't really a negative for a pop star.
