You have to try and explain how Kanye West is not the best musician of this century

This guy here has produced what is easily the best album of the last 10 years "My beautiful dark twisted fantasy" If you haven't listened to the whole album then you can not judge.
He is a genius and you can see that in all of his work since the college dropout, He has worked with a lot of other artists and every single time you can see his genius.

His flow is unbeatable and the instrumental work to his songs are amazing.


Tell me that he is not in the top 5 musicians of all time

Too obvious. I'm not failing you however, as it was at least nicely formatted.

I suggest you actually read the coursebook again and try some more of the practice tests.

You are obviously trolling but nonetheless I kind of agree with you, we are just talking about the 21st century right?

But his flow is not unbeatable his rapping is average at best and he is not one of the top 5 musicians of all time.

I can't wait for elitists to drop into this thread

I own the album. I do have to give the man credit for his good sense of building textures and catchy melodies, but honestly:
1. the instrumental piano intro for All of the lights is such a weak little piece of music, packed with cliches, his instrumental work is NOT impressive.
2. Unbeatable flow? Listen to MF Doom, P.O.S, Sage Francis, Mos Def for far better lyrics and better flow.

Not the best musician of this century. Not even close.

Well, I really could not care less. Kudos to you that you can be honest with a rap artist being your favourite on a forum like this. I do not agree with you and I don't think many will.

Good for you however.

The whole Grammar Nazi thing is so old now

Anyway, no one has given me a reason yet?


How can you argue with subjective views?

Bob Dylan is a better musician. He's done folk, rock, blues and pop. Mixed different styles and managed to be the best songwriter in each of these genres. In my opinion.
He's also won prizes for his lyrics and poetry, plays harmonica, piano, guitar yada yada.

What else do you want to hear?

I could mention 200 musicians I'd rate higher than Kanye West. But it's all subjectivity. I could argue a person doing an album worth of songs with just one chord (any except the Em) and he could be the best musician ever as he manages to write the exact music I like the most. That wouldn't make it objectively wrong, nor would it objectively right in any way.

But I'm digging too deep in a troll thread now.

Right, Kanye West isn't even in my top 5 favourite musician/bands. You can't deny how good he is though, this is the whole point of the thread, everyone knows that he's the best but won't accept it

He can only write hip-hop and he's not particularly good at any instrument. There.

I think Horsedick.MPEG is the greatest rapper in the world. When his album dropped at Tower Records, muthafukas got killed!

I think that Kanye is ****ing amazing as well. I don't think he's a particularly great rapper, but as a songwriter and producer, absolutely brilliant. And yes, a total douche. Whatevs
