KanYe also named Man of the Year

Best rapper alive right now. If Nas would come out of hiding and Lil Wayne & Eminem would stop selling out, we might have competition.

Kanye West is a producer, not a rapper. He should just do instrumentals, because his 'skills' on wax is BSBDDS. Highly overrated, both musically and lyrically/verbally as an artist. He benefits from rap music being in the worst condition (quality wise) ever. I'm not tryin' to hate, just pointing out the obvious.

KanYe West made Kid Cudi. He is an amazing producer. He made most of the beats in Jay Z`s "black album" his flow might not be the best in the game but his lyrics alone hold their own. He talks about the real shit. Uses similes and metaphors like he is a Literary Professor. With this album he finally started innovating the game. Just like how he helped Kid Cudi do it with his album. Finally getting us away from this lil wayne/eminem bullshit.

Top 10 rapper of all time.

Top 5 in my book.

Billboard, Time, Slant Magazine, Pitchfork Media, and Rolling Stone also named it the best album of 2010 in their year-end lists.

There we go. Vibe & Spin did aswell.

Pitiful. Album was ok at best. Clearly nothing more than a popularity contest here.

Is this suppose to be a surprise? Kanye stays proving time after time why he's the greatest of the generation.

Yo. thread starter. you should make a thread about the list of people Kanye has made mad.
