View Full Version : What's everyone's opinion on Kanye West?

I feel like there's no artist more polarizing than Kanye West right now. This guy's attitude, persona, and music makes you hate him or love him. He's indisputably one of the greatest artists of our generation in my opinion, since his albums have influenced waves of new artists.
What do you guys think about him? Hate him or love him?

I'm not sure how I feel about him. I never hated him or loved him. the only memories I have is that he interrupted Taylor during the awards show. Although this topic was so buzzed about in the media, all I took from this incident was his abrasiveness and his overall persona. Now that he is married to Kim I feel like he is just going to be climbing up that social ladder so he must be doing something right? (haha).

He'd retarded, no offense to his fanbase. He takes pride in "not reading books" and loves himself way too much he's become the symbol of narcissism today. Also the fact that he named his daughter North West is probably one of the stupidest ideas he's ever done.

This is about his personality though. As a musician he's alright. I even like some of his songs. He's nothing too innovative or something like that though. Gives himself too much credit.

I like his music, strongly dislike his personality. Taylor Swift wasn't the only person he interrupted during an award show. I can't remember who it was but he lost Best Video and he ran up on stage and said he should have won because his video cost $1 Million.
He also lost Best New Artist to Gretchen Willson at the American Music Awards. He didn't interrupt her (he knew she would kick his ass big time) but he went off about it backstage.

I'm not a fan of rap, and even so, his music seems pretty mediocre at best.
His personality, however, is absolute crap
Yes disgustingly arrogant, and is just...an ass through and through.

I can't say I really have an opinion- I just don't really care about him either way. He's just...Nothing to me? Does that make sense?

I think he makes some good music, I like his old songs than the new ones though. But as far as influence is concerned, if he influenced a lot of new artists of today, I think that's kinda bad since in my opinion, no artists in the rap industry exists today if you would take the old school rappers out. I mean the old ones are still the best. Rappers today just release songs that have words that rhyme but do not really mean anything. No offense meant for fans of new rap artists. Kanye is cool but about influence? I would still stick to Pac and NWA.

I'm prеtty surе thаt his buffооnish publiс pеrsоnа is аn еlаbоrаtе piесе оf pеrfоrmаnсе аrt. Rаppеrs аrе muсh likе соmеdiаns in thаt thеir publiс pеrsоnае аrе wild еxаggеrаtiоns оf thеir (usuаlly quiеt аnd nеrdy) sеlvеs. I hаvеn't mеt Kаnyе, but I'vе mеt а fеw оthеr оf my hip-hоp hеrоеs, аnd еvеry timе, thеy turn оut tо bе sоft-spоkеn, bооkish аnd thоughtful, nо mаttеr hоw thuggish оr militаnt thеir stаgе pеrsоnа might bе.
