look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
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 gay fish who is an expert at fucking up at the VMAs, and as of September 13, 2009, is officially Taylor Swift's bitch after what he did to her. His songs tend to cause bleeding of the ears, diarrhea, and Lou Gehrig's Disease. Most likely seen being walked down the street on all fours on a leash by Taylor Swift, with a muzzle to quiet the bullshit that tends to eminate from his mouth.
Guy 1:"Dude did you listen to that new Kanye West song?"
Guy 2:"Kanye West making a new song? After what happened? Naw, man. That cockstain hasn't made a song since before September 13. That was probably just him gagging on gay fish dong."
