A hip-hop artist hailing from Chicago, Illinois. Spawned from a member of the Black Panthers and an English professor.

Kanye West commonly comes under scrutiny from the media and people for the large amount of stupid shit he does/says.
All of this takes away from the fact that he is actually a very talented producer, writer, and rapper.

Before becoming majorly mainstream, Kanye had three very impressive, landmark hip-hop albums. He single-handedly produced and wrote almost every song on his debut album "The College Dropout". His first few albums are known for their creativity, soulful production, and creative use of Motown/Soul samples.

Although Kanye West may make a lot of dumb decisions in front of the public, and is sometimes considered racist and ignorant, he has still been one of the biggest impacts on the music industry in the past decade, he is a top-notch producer, a fashion designer, a music video director, and he is never afraid to speak his mind to his fans and the public (even though it commonly ends up sounding really dumb).

All in all, you can't deny Kanye West does some dumb things, but people tend to only see the bad in him rather than his impressive achievements.
1."Have you heard that song Family Business by Kanye West? It's really good."

2."Did you hear what Kanye West said about George Bush? Where does he come up with these things?!"

He is very talented as a rapper and producer though i feel there are better rappers that are rookies just like he is. The Game is also a great rapper. Kanye west does not talk much about drugs and sex. Many people like his song jesus walks but there are much better songs on his album.
Yo man have you heard Two words featuring Mos Def by kanye west. That shit is hot.

Decent MC, uses some clever wordplay and fortunately doesn't try to act like all thuglife. Brilliant producer. Would probably be more appreciated if it wasn't for his dynamic ego. Still better than most rappers on radio.
I'm trying to hit it earl-ay, like I'm in a hurr-ay.

A. a term used for overall dissapointment at a Tennessee music festival named Bonnaroo, in which Kanye kept 50,000 would-be fans waiting for over 3 hours on his late-night performance one year. As the night progressed, instead of talking to the crowd and explaining what was going on so they could watch other acts, Kanye blamed everything on the stage workers, who had set up hundreds of shows before Kanye ever was invited to Bonnaroo, thus alienating said fans from other potential musical experiences.

B. A term used to describe anything that is unsatisfying during said Bonnaroo Music Festival. Often times, groups of festival goers will chant "Fuck Kanye" sparatically, even 3 years after his failed performance.

C. Term used to describe anyone acting like a selfish ignorant dick mouth.
A. "Man, I thought this band would be better...they're actually pretty Kanye West."

B. Words of chanting festival-goers at every Bonnaroo since Kanye visited, starting the Sunday after his weak performance: "Fuck Kanye, Fuck Kanye."

C. "Quit being such a Kanye, you are ruining everyone's buzz."
