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."

Dude with the smooth flow, killer beats, fearless nature, entrepreneurial spirit, and charisma/arrogance-by-design that has taken him straight to the top of the game. Doesn't pretend to be gangsta, is always honest in his rhymes, and has the Midas touch. Every song he writes or produces is good enough to be a single. That's why his debut album outsold 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
Nobody can touch Kanye West's skills as a writer/producer/director/performer.

“Yo Merriam Webster, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but Urban Dictionary has one of the best definitions of all time. One of the best definitions of all time!”
I'm Kanye West and President Obama thinks I'm a jackass.

The most fake "rapper" out there. He raps about nothing he knows about (living in the projects and shit). When he grew up in the suburbs, and got all his money from his parents. He is one of those "attention needing prissy bitches" that gets anything and everything he wants from money thats not his. He recently claimed he should be in the bible because hes as important as jesus. He blames everything on the "white man" when he also says everyone is equal...basically Kanye West is a living, walking, and talking contradiction and oxy-moron. I cant wait till the whole "Kanye" bullshit is over.
Kanye West = Walking, talking, lying, cheating, good for nothing rasist walking contradicion. Everyone else who is a fan of kanyes, is also one of these. Get a life and listen to music worth listening to.
