I've never listened to much Kanye just because I'm lazy about listening to hip hop, but I've been hearing this album in my friend's car recently and I think it's more that he's self-consciously projecting the ultimate egomaniacal rapper persona. Obviously there are enough of people who try to do this than you can shake a stick at, but they're not doing it to make the same satirical artistic statement as Kanye. At least that's how I see it.
