    Okay, I was on a Kanye relisten music binge recently and it's become clear to me that Ye is one of the best artists OF THIS GENERATION. What other artist consistently reinvents himself every time he releases a new album. What artist is ABLE to release music that not only inspires but resonates with the people on a such a deep and personal level. What artist has contributed so much not just to hip-hop but to music as a whole.

    I know a lot of you like to hate on Kanye because of his personality, his rants and his general persona as a whole but really who gives a shit when he gives us the music that he does. He's a genius. A genius in creating in music that transcends genres and becomes something else entirely.

    Yeah. I really liked MBDTF.

    Let's make a collective effort to not make any gay fish jokes for the sake of thread integrity. At least try. :tpi:

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Oh god. Rap. Ew.

    How about these fellows?

    Bon Iver - Creature Fear


    Damien Rice - The Professor & La Fille Danse



    Or maybe some Frank Sinatra. You know. Good music c;
    For those who know me, they know well that I'm incredibly obsessed with Damien Rice. He's fluent in over 6 languages, gives all (I mean ALL - he's lived on the street before while famous. He's super selfless and sings from the heart) his money to charity. He's the man.

    Awwwww no no no, he's ok if you're into that type of things but he's far from one of the greatest artist, you can't even put him in the same category as the likes of The beatles, Elton John, Pink Floyd or someone in the same genre Michael Jackson. You need a real lesson young one

    Let me say it this way... Is Kanye any good in comparison to Miley Cyrus, One Direction or Justin Beiber? Yes. In comparison to other contemporary musicians? Erm... Yeah, still bottom of the barrel, but at least it's not in the mulch. :)

    I really need to say this. I can't just let it slide...

    You look nothing like Nathan Drake...

    Au, contraire. They're all just terrible and neither is 'good in comparison' ;)

    Where all things matter
    One more plz lol
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Now back to reality xD

    Kanye West is talented, but as to saying he is the greatest? seems very inaccurate. I have two of his albums which is College dropout, and Late Registration, and those honestly were his best when he was at his prime. Now when I heard Yeezus, I never ever wanted to hear a song ever from him again. Kanye West is a genius, but all his rage on all of his shows make him look like a douche, which he isn't, hes just stressing out over stuff. Now as my favorite rappers, it would probably be

    1. Kendrick Lamar
    2. Logic
    3. Childish Gambino
    4. Jay Z
    5. Kanye West

    Kanye? Really? O.o

    I'd rather listen to Carter Burwell's music any day over Kanye's.

    Yeah, even "bad" has a gradation and I'm afraid that Kanye is a step higher than those three, however small that step might be - let's be objective here.

    You should probably take a seat next to SoulX


    Okay, I guess I can agree with that. I should probably say that I hate rap more than any other genre, including pop, so maybe that's the cause? But yup. They're all just terrible.
