I've only heard a couple of his songs. give me some real opinions on Kanye's music, not Kanye, just his work
His work is to hire dozens of people to come together and produce music, write his lyrics, and then put his name on the final product.
If you think its any different, you're delusional. I'd love to hear a track by Kanye that doesn't have other writers, but that'll never happen because that's not where Kanye's talent lies. His talent lies in marketing.
Naw, he definitely has ghost writers. Remember when Kanye insisted that Nikki Minaj wrote that verse for Monster? Such a blatant lie makes the entire house of cards fall down.
Gorgeous has pretty good lyrics. I heard Kanyes ghost writer died after that album, which us why the lyrics on Yeezus are a joke.
Only cause the beats are kinda "industrial" sounding. Couple songs (On sight, Black Skinhead) kinda sound like DG songs, but songs like Hold my liquor, Blood on the leaves and Bound 2 sound nothing like DG. My first couple listens of yeezus i didn't like it but now I think it's one of his strongest albums.
All Falls Down
His albums are best listened to in chronological order, Ye expects you to know who he is and it really adds to the lyrics when the context is given, this is especially true on 808's and beyond.
College Dropout is kind of retarded sometimes but it's solid; Late Registration is beautiful (and also retarded sometimes); Graduation is fun; 808's is by far his most accomplished and seminal work; MBDTF would be better than 808's if it wasn't for the dogshit mixing; Yeezus pulls at straws.
The new singles aren't even worth checking out.
