A popular African-American Rap/Soul/R&B/Hip-Hop musician whose radical, largely short-sighted and unfounded racial/political views are the object of much controversy.

In attempt(s) to 'cover' for his lack of musical originality, Kanye West will often invite other more talented musicians/artists to perform and/or record on his records.

It is also believed by some that Kanye West is purposely controversial and overly head-strong to the point of being unfounded in his political/racial views, largely because his lack of outstanding creativity in the area of music has left much to be desired in generating publicity toward his art.

All consensus aside, Kanye West remains well-known in pop-culture, possibly due to his increasingly outspoken 'chip-on-his-shoulder' form of communicating social ideas which has generated a notable amount of media exposure.

It remains to be seen exactly what mark Kanye West will have left on society when he will eventually reach the close of his career, as it is believed by many that Kanye West appears to be at a loss as to whether he desires to be a musical artist or a didactic revolutionary.

His music can usually be found beside other artists who have established a much richer reputation of actual talent whom he has invited to become co-artists on his projects.

"Kanye West is so fly!"

"After Kanye West's heated words about George W. Bush's apparent hatred of ethnic peoples on the Hurricane Katrina special, Co-Host Mike Meyers was left at a loss at how to react to the awkwardness and sheer impropriety evoked by West."

One of the best rappers who mostly talks about life such as,"Yeah, we almost got jacked but we we're smart" not like this,"Yeah, we uh...beat the living crap out of this guy".

The legacy will live forever.

Unique,powerful, and last but not least handsome
He talks less about pimps and cars and more about real life experiences that many people can relate. Which without a doubt makes him one of a kind
