Kanye West looks like a chipmunk. And he is conceited.
Maybe 50 is better, but I'd have to be able to understand the words that come out of his mouth to decide.
But I don't like rap, generally.

True. But he's the only one I know of who cried publicly when he didn't win...

Idolized by which rappers and what do you mean by "the wrong reasons"? I do agree with you though, that there are better rappers than both Kanye and 50 on the mic, but that's no reason to write either off as artists (I'm talking about Kanye more than 50 here).

Idiots everywhere respect him for his emceeing skills when in reality he couldn't rap his way out of a paper bag. But these are the same people that made Lil Wayne popular, so I don't judge too much by them.

lol, wow, one of my favorite albums...

regarding the previous post: I will ,once again, agree with you that Kanye is not the best of lyricists but I wouldn't say he's garbage. Compared to some of Lil Wayne or 50's rhymes, Kanye could be the bloody John Lennon of hip-hop (in terms of writing ability)..here are a few brilliant excerpts.

Lil Wayne "Playing with Fire":
And I feel caged in my mind it's like my flow is doin time
I go crazy inside but when it comes out it's fine like wine
Wait
Watch
See I get betta with time like a watch
Osch be gasch posh spice husband
Couldn't kick it like I kick it ***** I kicks it

50 cent "21 questions":
If I feel off tomorrow would you still love me?
If I didn't smell so good would you still hug me?
...
And always remember girl we make mistakes, to make it up I do whatever it take
I love you like a fat kid love cake
You know my style I say anything to make you smile

Kanye West "Brand New" (a feature on a Rhymefest track):
They don't want to turn they speakers up they claim I ain't deep enough
All that talkin' I feed off of - keep it up
I'm relaxin' my feet is up - I'm leavin' you haters
Like when Shaq left the Lakers just to "Heat" it up
I state the stats to stunt - I don't need to front
I make black history e'ry day - I don't need a month
The survey says - by the streets according
Kanye's just important as Michael Jordan
Was to the NBA when he was scorin'
Ralph Lauren was borin' before I wore him and..
(chorus)

Kanye also changes his flow around on the track making it more of an interesting track to listen to than most anything by 50 cent who uses a monotone.

Kanye West is better in my opinion. 50 Cent is pretty much mainstream, fancy beat and meaningless lyrics, with a few exceptions. Kanye, on the other hand is simply a musical genius. He creates all of his own beats, this makes for a great sound that flows perfectly with his lyrics.
