First of all, I hate him as a rapper, producer and person. He is the biggest arrogant twat i have ever known. He thinks he is bigger than... pretty much everything. However although he himself thinks he is amazing (unwarranted), and cannot rap for shit, calling himself the messiah of hip-hop etc, saying that Jesus Walks is the best song ever, this is not the thing i hate most.
What i hate most is that:
1. People agree that he is the messiah of hiphop - he cannot rap for shit. Some would say he is a decent producer and i cannot deny it, although i would not agree, but what i would say is, College Dropout and Late Registration are 2 of the worst albums i possess (d/l and only so that i can hate on them)
2. He thinks it's cool to drop out of college - why is it cool? If he thinks he's hood for dropping out of college, then what planet is he on. I would have much more respect for him if he was educated, and HAD gone to college.
3. His unbelievable arrogance.
4. His popularity; his music is basically pop, and he gets huge acclaim for it. Why? WHY? I really don't understand it. I almost cry when i hear people say that a song such as 'Gold Digger' is good. It's appalling. He IS saying she's a Gold Digger; that's the whole point of the song.
My friend has a theory that any song, with a shit, repetitive beat, and barely any verse with tons of bridge, hook and chorus, can do well, and after initially doubting it, i see no reason to disagree. I could name hundreds, the best example being 'My Humps' Even the verse is ridiculously uninventive; 'I met a girl, down at the disco, she said hey, hey hey hey let's go!'
I bet that took a load of thinking up, then,
'My Humps, My Humps, My Humps, My Humps, My Lovely Lady Lumps...' It's death in the medium of song, and that is essentially what Kanye is doing in most of his songs. Maybe he is unique, but for me unique in a bad way.
I am possibly saying all this just because i hate most popular music, and i hate crossover; if someone is a rap artist, rap, don't do it for the money. There have been artists who have managed to stay good and make tons - Pac, Biggie, Dre (to an extent). So why does Kanye do pop and call himself a messiah. They already have Usher, Britney... They don't need another popstar.
I hate Kanye West. He deserves to die...
A gay fish.
Kanye West is a gay fish, not a motherfuckin' lyrical genius.
I think youll find this describes Kanye pretty well.
Racism’s Double Standard, By Rudy Gersten
September 19, 2005
Kanye West is a racist. Not that this should come as a newsflash to anyone who has ever listened to his music. West’s new album Late Registration just debuted at number one on the billboard charts, selling 860,000 copies in its first week. But the press has largely given the hip hop star a pass for his outrageous comments during an NBC telethon for Hurricane Katrina victims. As most Americans now know, the hugely successful rapper claimed that the government was sending troops to New Orleans not to help those in need but to “shoot us” and accused President Bush of not caring about blacks. But the fact that West is himself a racist must not be overlooked, or, as is the case with the mainstream media, completely ignored.
You won’t find any criticism of West on MTV, which has aired numerous documentaries in the past attacking hate speech, including questioning white rapper Eminem’s anti-homosexual lyrics. But MTV and other outlets apparently have no problem with West’s referring to whites as “the devil” or his claim that when a drug dealer buys Jordans and a “crack head buy crack…the white man get paid.” Funny, I don’t recall getting any royalty checks from local crack sales last month.
In a hit song off West’s new album, he degrades a black man who leaves his woman for “a white girl.” And in a recent interview with Stuff Magazine, West said...
Kanye West says: On hurricane Katrina, "George Bush doesn't care about black people." (Ignorant/Retarded/Racist) "They've given them permission to go down (to New Orleans) and shoot us (black people)." (Ignorant/Retarded/Racist)
Good rapper who also happens to be an arrogant prick most of the time. Also believes rubbish like AIDS was purposely introduced to Africa by the U.S. Government. Has shitty taste in music.
Kanye West loves John Mayer and Maroon 5.
Racist rapper. Blames 'the white man' for everything. Incredibly weak raps.
Yeah I got the Kanye West CD....but it's bootlegged.
Call him what you may. An asshole, a genius or a gayfish (even though its terribly old now). But one thing is for sure: the mainstream music industry needs him, and that is why he's so valuable. Anyone with any knowledge would know that Kanye has made one of the biggest impacts on hip-hop. The College Dropout was the mark of a new era in hip-hop. He was never the soulful rapper, he was the different one. From his high-pitched samples, all the way to working with John Mayer and Adam Levine. What people don't see is this: he started a foundation to help kids get through school, blamed himself for his mothers tragic death, and all people can look at is the Taylor Swift incident. Kanye may not be the best person in the world, but without him, music simply wouldn't be the same.

Griffin: YES! KANYE WEST!
*Griffin turns on radio in 2010*
Griffin: Gayfish, he dissed ma girl Taylor.
A rapper who thinks Ronald Reagan created cocaine and AIDS to destroy the civil rights movement. Nowadays makes the claim that "George Bush doesn't care about black people." Even rappers like 50 Cent
think this is an idiotic and ignorant claim, however.
Also assumed to be a black supremist, judged by his beliefs.
Kanye West should really stop rapping about political shit he knows nothing about, as should Eminem
"All people are equal, see, but, um, black people are more equal th-than, others." - Kanye West
