Ok so Kanye just won the award for best Rap award.

Now, it may just be me but I think that they may have done it to possibly stop another out burst like at the british awards (I think it was them I may be completely wrong but it was a big one)

I'm not saying he's not good enough to win just that I think it's going to be impossible for anyone else to win while he's around and not neccessarily because he's the best but just because it's him.

Thoughts?

(Btw, I don't listen to Rap/Hip hop at all really so I'm not sure who I thought should've won or anything like that, this is just a theory)

When you type shit you need to take a bbcode to bypass it. Quote the post and you'll see.

Lyrically he's one of the better rappers in modern hip-hop.

His arrogance is pretty bad, but it still doesn't change how he performs musically.

Damn i didnt get flamed yet.
but i dont really think rap is as popular as everyone is imagining.
its popular, but it isnt really dominating the music world, imo

famous artists that make quality music will get recognized no matter what genre

Kanye West, an amazing artist. As far as his personality on tv goes... no thanks.

No, the wold would be better off if people who were intolerant and have no respect for other people's opinions were gone.

fixed.

But then again, any decent rapper compared to soulja boy or t-pain or whatever will probably be consider god.


I dont even think he's a good lyricist tbh, he has the occasionally good line but nothing special, i love his beats though.

no it wouldn't. that is such a dumb thing to say you didn't even respect my opinion. *wormhole opens* whoa an equation! *looks inside* 18 divided my zero equals 32?

Yeahh....Kanye's really good. Graduation is a pretty good cd. Sure there's tonns of better hip hop out there now, but really do you expect any of it to get to the grammy's? The grammy's are only for certain people, Kanye's one of 'em. This year hasn't done too too much for rap either.

Also, people who point out typos need to GTFO.

And, I was explaining how it wasn't hypocrisy, not disagreeing with your opinion.

Did you see the American History X thread?

Hate breeds more hate.

And, these people said rap sucks without having a reason why, and in my opinion, that is the worst kind of hate.

I can agree that his production is far superior to his lyrics.

But I'll still stick to the fact that his lyrics are very witty, and not every song is about flashyness and bangin' ho's and killing people.

Ok so everyone's staying off the topic.

I was asking, do you think that anyone will win any award against him while he's around?

It depends. No one that is popular (there are underground rappers that can) really has a chance right now. His album makes fools of the competition.

That's not too hard to do, when everyone is rapping about the same stupid stuff. Every rapper talks about what a G they are, how much money they have and they say their name in every song, along with 'YO YO WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT"

Rap is a joke. It's nothing more than glorified spoken word. It's all hype.

Kanye West is an idiotic tool. "george bush hates black people".........Leave it to a complete dumbass to make an comment like that

I'm happy that he got it; I'm happy 50 cent didn't get it. Kanye deserved it more than the other nominees... and yeah people that say rap isn't music need to leave this thread.
