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."

A racist mediocre rapper but above average producer/media whore who has absolutely no flow and who's style of music can be best described as pop. Doesn't like George Bush.
Kanye West is a blatant racist, but no one says anything about it because he's black.

Verb- to Kanye West: To effectively end one's professional career by one's own actions in a specific and unforgettable fashion (e.g., Coming up on stage and interrupting another performer's awards show acceptance speech).

Remarkably, said actions may rally masses of less-educated individuals in support of the Kanye-er, thus insuring the offender another opportunity to embarass him/herself on national TV.
"Whatever happened to <insert celebrity name here>?"

"Don't you remember when he punched that old lady at the supermarket?"

"Oh yeah he really pulled a Kanye West."

or

"Oh yeah, he really Kanye'd that one."
