    “the Mozart of contemporary American music"

    Michael Jackson, led zeppelin, Madonna, Elvis, The Beatles. All are names synonymous with the history of Music. Each are artists that have stood the test of time and left their mark on music, not to mention have influenced generations of aspiring musicians.

    Kanye will be there, no one in any area of contemporary music can boast such quality and even more so diversity. His production is unmatched in terms of consistency and whilst he isn't the best rapper he continues to put more relevant lyrics into his music than nearly anyone else.

    When he first started producing for the likes of jay z and on the release of his first lp you could say a lot of his beats were similar. Fast forward to now and lps like dark twisted fantasy and cruel summer show an artist at the peak of music, also not forgetting his album with jay z.

    I bet everyone here agrees but time will prove me right. :)

    I liked the bit where he walked into a sign.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    How about when he interrupted Taylor swifts award speech or slagged off president bush on live tv making mike Myers very uncomfortable.

    I like Kanye but this seems excessive. Also Cruel Summer is decent but not amazing.

    Gah, I hate that. "Stop taking pictures!". Look mate, you live in the public eye, you've made an obscene amount of money as a result, and this is about the only thing you have to worry about.

    Have to disagree with that. It's never nice to be followed around 24/7 by paparazzi who want to take pictures and know about every detail in your life, no matter how big and famous a celebrity you are. I'd say it's a pretty big thing to worry about.

    I'd say it is a big thing to worry about alright, but it's the price of fame. I'm sure there's plenty of folk (not me, personally) who'd trade their anonymity for the life of luxury he leads.

    Don't want paparazzi following you about? Release your music anonymously and don't get a reality TV 'star' preggers.

    Nah, he's famous for his music. Not famous for being famous like a lot of these cunts. The latter group being the ones that cannot complain about paparazzi.

    My favourite Kanye song is that one where he makes a massive hash of Daft Punk's Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, and without any sense of irony includes the line "do(sic) anybody make real shit anymore?"

    Finally someone who agrees. Kanye is a living legend. RIP Kanye 1977-2009

    He's talented for a gay fish. But he's no legend.

    He also has a lovely girlfriend.

    Who is devoid of any talent and is famous just for the sake of being famous. And also:

    - Makes sex tape which just happens to leak as a show about her and her family starts airing
    - Gets married to NBA player for money, publicity and to drive up ratings on her show, starts divorce proceedings within a few months
    - Puts name to line of credit cards targeted at young teens

    Yeah she's a keeper alright.

    She dives for cheese pasties
