Yes, Kanye is one of the most creative and prolific artists of our time.

haha yea seriously, He is the most creative and prolific artist of our time ? This is the worst musical era since the 80's  . By the way I can name a bunch of more talent and prolific artists in the 21st century .

Start off with John Frusciante , I got a whole bunch more for you too, unless hip hop is all you listen to ?
Oh man, you love the Froosh too!?


Curtains is one of my favorite albums EVER


TP my good man

yup frusciante is the man

check out this interview , he touches on what art should be all about in the first question

Yep, Frusciante is awesome and totally underrated. Another artist that is just as good and equally underrated but never complains.....Steven Wilson.

Frusciante is such a talented dude but man is he out there. His solo stuff is wild and the Chili Peppers will obviously never be the same without him.

His guitar playing is ridiculous but what always got me was his epic high harmonies. Some of the harmonies on the RHCP choruses are just flat out silly to listen to.

Whoever said Beyoncé is a performer, not an artist, hit the nail exactly on the head.

Now most people with ears know that Kanyes music is better than Becks. But that's all I'm interested from Kanye-Music. Usually when he voices his opinions in real life the fact that he is an egotistical, self centered, controlling baby comes to light pretty quickly. Which is upsetting because his first album, College Drop-Out, had a lot of uplifting and positive messages.   
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

Yeah, Kanye strikes me as a very self-centered, egomaniac who has no respect for others. He's also been known to make some fairly racially insensitive remarks towards caucasians.

He does have talent, although he certainly is not any sort of generational talent. Certainly not on the level of many other greats.

Bottom line is, while used to kind of sort of like his music, I refuse to listen to him now out of principal. That, and his music has deteriorated from his earlier works. Beck is a far greater at what he does than Kanye is at what he does. It really is sad to think there are people who think otherwise.

Kanye really needs to just go away, screw him.

The thing that bothers me most about Kanye is that he truly believes he is a genius and values himself and his opinions too highly. That limits his scope and only reinforces his weaknesses in a vicious cycle of increasing narrow-mindedness.

Kanye's elite talent is his work ethic. He tops out as mediocre in anything related to music or art in my book. Which is fine. But he doesn't realize this and he's obnoxious because of it.

haha yea seriously, He is the most creative and prolific artist of our time ? This is the worst musical era since the 80's  . By the way I can name a bunch of more talent and prolific artists in the 21st century .

See this is the reason why your comment was so wrong. Does my recognition of Kayne West as one of the most creative and prolific artists (and by the way, I said "one of", which you seemed to miss) of our time, you think somehow that hip hop is all I listen to, and you think somehow that's relevant to the conversation.

To back up my claim, let's look at his wikipedia article:

Quote
As of 2013, West has won a total of 21 Grammy Awards, making him one of the most awarded artists of all-time.[2] About.com ranked Kanye West No. 8 on their "Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers" list.[237] On May 16, 2008, Kanye West was crowned by MTV as the year's No. 1 "Hottest MC in the Game."[238] On December 17, 2010, Kanye West was voted as the MTV Man of the Year by MTV.[239] Billboard ranked Kanye West No. 3 on their list of Top 10 Producers of the Decade.[240] West ties with Bob Dylan for having topped the annual Pazz & Jop critic poll the most number of times ever, with four number-one albums each.[241] West has also been included in the Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world as well as being listed in a number of Forbes annual lists.[3]

In its 2012 list of "500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Rolling Stone included three of West's albums?The College Dropout at number 298,[242] Late Registration at number 118,[243] and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy at number 353.[244]

The Pitchfork online music publication ranked My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy as the world's best album of the decade "so far"?between 2010 and 2014?on August 19, 2014, while Yeezus was ranked in the eighth position of a list of 100 albums. During the same week, the song "Runaway" (featuring Pusha T) was ranked in the third position in the publication's list of the 200 "best tracks" released since 2010

If you don't like his music, you don't like his music. I cannot stand the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I literally hate nearly all of their songs (except Love Rollercoaster..for some reason) that I've heard, and I've heard just about all of their songs. But I don't pretend that they're not an extremely talented and extremely influential rock band. I just don't dig them.

To not acknowledge Kanye's impact on modern music in the last 15 years, you might as well say the world is flat and thunder happens because God's bowling.

Back when he did that thing to Taylor Swift, I thought it was all about publicity. I now believe he's legitimately lost a handle on reality.

It's a cover, that's probably the reason.

must admit, I celebrate Beck's entire catalogue.  ages like wine.

I remember first buying Midnight Vultures and hating all of it.  Now I can't get enough of that entire album...  Very few artists create albums with that quality, that's why I feel his music is transcendent.

I am not a big fan of the chilli peppers either, but John Frusciante is one of the greatest musicians of the last 30 years, that's why he left that band. He is a superior singers and musician to anyone in that band.

Just saying there are a lot better and more talented artists in the music industry than Kanye. He was the one saying it should be all about art .....

Agreed. Posting bliilboard and rolling stone quotes just further diminishes credibility if you want to make the argument that someone is a great artist. Those sources and the Grammy committee just reinforce the music industry profit machine, they do not promote or reward great musical artists
