Kanye West-Love Him or Hate Him?

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...

College Dropout and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy are absolute masterpieces.

Graduation and 808s are meh IMO.

Lyrical genius. The guy is a flat out douche though, but he tells you that in his songs.

I'm not a big fan of Kanye's personality.

Also, he's mediocre at best as an MC.

But as a producer? Easily one of the greatest ever.

I've been a fan since I first heard him.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

This album blew me away. I never thought I would say that about a recent rap album either.

Like him as a rap artist, but don't like him as a person.

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.

As a human being is a complete d-bag, but as an artist is pretty amazing, easily top 10, I would not argue top 5, although I reward a little more for longevity.

I'm kinda like everyone else in here. His personality is shite and he can be a douche bag. But if we are strictly talking about music industry, the guy is talented.

Genius, bothers me when he gets into the angry black man mode though, but he's a true artist.

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.
