I respect your opinion. However, for me, 808s & Heartbreak is one of Kanye West's best albums. I still get goosebumps from listening to hits like "Street lights," and "Welcome to Heartbreak" to this day. Don't even get me started on "Pinocchio story." Rarely do you hear artists put that much heart into their work, you can tell this shit came from the soul.
1. He wasn't singing....so what was he doing? I kinda see where you are coming from, but you are wrong because Young Jeezy clearly rapped traditionally on the album.
2. The album wasnt that deep. Kanye is a selfish ego maniac. 808's and heartbreaker marked him falling off.
3. He put the most heart, the most genuine emotions in his first couple albums.
