Yes, Kanye is one of the most creative and prolific artists of our time.
To quote an anonymous CB'er...
That's pretty messed up. Offensive as well. And wrong. Its like a 'get off my lawn' trifecta.
haha yea seriously, He is the most creative and prolific artist of our time ? This is the worst musical era since the 80's . By the way I can name a bunch of more talent and prolific artists in the 21st century .
Start off with John Frusciante , I got a whole bunch more for you too, unless hip hop is all you listen to ?
See this is the reason why your comment was so wrong. Does my recognition of Kayne West as one of the most creative and prolific artists (and by the way, I said "one of", which you seemed to miss) of our time, you think somehow that hip hop is all I listen to, and you think somehow that's relevant to the conversation.
To back up my claim, let's look at his wikipedia article:
As of 2013, West has won a total of 21 Grammy Awards, making him one of the most awarded artists of all-time. About.com ranked Kanye West No. 8 on their "Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers" list. On May 16, 2008, Kanye West was crowned by MTV as the year's No. 1 "Hottest MC in the Game." On December 17, 2010, Kanye West was voted as the MTV Man of the Year by MTV. Billboard ranked Kanye West No. 3 on their list of Top 10 Producers of the Decade. West ties with Bob Dylan for having topped the annual Pazz & Jop critic poll the most number of times ever, with four number-one albums each. West has also been included in the Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world as well as being listed in a number of Forbes annual lists.
In its 2012 list of "500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Rolling Stone included three of West's albums?The College Dropout at number 298, Late Registration at number 118, and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy at number 353.
The Pitchfork online music publication ranked My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy as the world's best album of the decade "so far"?between 2010 and 2014?on August 19, 2014, while Yeezus was ranked in the eighth position of a list of 100 albums. During the same week, the song "Runaway" (featuring Pusha T) was ranked in the third position in the publication's list of the 200 "best tracks" released since 2010
If you don't like his music, you don't like his music. I cannot stand the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I literally hate nearly all of their songs (except Love Rollercoaster..for some reason) that I've heard, and I've heard just about all of their songs. But I don't pretend that they're not an extremely talented and extremely influential rock band. I just don't dig them.
To not acknowledge Kanye's impact on modern music in the last 15 years, you might as well say the world is flat and thunder happens because God's bowling.
