Before Kanye came up, mainstream rap was run exclusively for faster rap from people from the ghetto. He was the first middle class rap star, and he spoke about issues that people from outside the ghetto could relate. Suddenly it was ok to talk about stuff other than gangsta shit. A couple of years later, he released 808's & Heartbreak, an album more melodic than anything else hitting mainstream, with very minimal and overall sad feeling. Most rap fans agree that Drake wouldn't have had that big of a hit if 808's didn't paved the way.
Honestly you can see Kanye's influence in almost every current big name: Kendrick, Cole, Joey, Krit, Chance... all were Kanye fans before they became successful, each getting more influence from one of Kanye's styles.
TL;DR: show it was ok to be middle class and emotional.

>Show that it was ok to be middleclass and emotional as a Black hiphop artist.
FTFY.

White artists were doing that schtick awhile before, especially Weezer.

People underestimate how significant of a change Kanye ushered into hip-hop. Too bad his ego got a hold of his artistry.

No, I got that but your TL;DR and your post draw similar but ultimately different conclusions that may be inaccurate.

Nah man, people agree with your point and wanted to help you with your TL;DR that was honestly bad and fucked up.
Then you get all hufflepuff about people not applying context to your TL;DR, which the entire purpose of TL;DR is to get an understanding of what you're saying without context.

TL;DR
you're the one with autism

>Kanye taught middle class people that it was okay to be an untalented rapper like him
Thanks Kanye, so influential
