Except the ones he doesn't create...which is pretty much all of them. Not to mention he's a terrible emcee and is overrated by his fellow rappers and fans. So no, I wouldn't call him a musical genius, in any sense. There's too many good hip-hop artists out there like El-P, Nas, and Wu-Tang to call a hack like Kanye a genius.

Don't be ridiculous, he was a producer before he became a rapper.

In Kanye's defence, 'Slow Jamz' is the only modern R&B song that I think has any merit at all. And that's down to his production.

Hahaha As proggy said, he started as a producer. So who do you think makes all his music...come on now.

I understand he was a producer before he was a rapper. I'm not knocking him for that (and I think he was damn good at it too). He didn't create all his own beats, though, and if you're gonna call Kanye a good hip-hop artist for being a good producer, then Rick Rubin is an AMAZING hip-hop artist. Never mind the fact that he's an overweight, middle aged white man with less emceeing skills than my deaf grandfather.

i wish he would only produce and let the good guys do the rapping for him.

He could still have plenty of credit and recognition if he did it under a new title, like what danger mouse did with 'gnarles barkley, or like madvilliany'

win-win

He definitely not more materialistic. 50 cent is the king of rapping about money. Take his new song for instance...I get Money.
