Actually he's a horrible rapper. Down right painful to listen to.

i like Kanye but his albums are overrated. College Dropout only had 8 good songs & Late Regisration about the same. First half of Late Reg. is great second half terrible except one song. Gold Digger & Diamonds are forever song is garbage. Just cause they but Gold Digger on video & radio everybody gotta ride it.

Kanye has pretty good production, decent to below average lyrics (which he gets alot of help with), and a god-aweful flow. He lacks the total package to put him among hip-hops elite.

Besides... he more of a pop artist than a serious rapper. I like my hip hop sugar free.

i actually like kanye west. i just downloaded his album a couple days ago & i used to absolutely dispise rap so downloading an entire album of it is a big step for me. anybody who doesnt like goldigger is pretty much dead inside.

Just consider Kanye a "gateway drug." Once you try the real stuff you'll wonder WTF you were wasting you time on him for.

took the words right out of my mouth. He's a good producer, i'll give him that, but more than anything he's a good market. He's not a talented rapper, and his lyrics suck, horribly. What he IS good at is marketing his image. His music is a product, not an art or an expression of individuality.
