The Very Best of KanYe West

So here is the first of the final 3 Best Of’s from myself. There are a few other artists I would have liked to of covered, but other things are more important now that I am back at University - plus these 3 will definitely make up for it. Since hearing The College Dropout back in 2004 I have been KanYe’s biggest fan and it’s safe to say it’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride. He completely changed my view on Hip-Hop and music in general when I was 14 with his unique sampling style and ingenious wordplay, which has gradually made him my favourite Rapper/Producer of all time. Granted he has said some ridiculous things over the past few years, but you have to take them with a pinch of salt and appreciate a master at work. I wasn’t a massive fan off 808s (although I understand why he did it), but The College Dropout, Late Registration and Graduation are 3 of my favourite albums of all time and whether you like him or not; nobody can deny the impact they have had on the world of music. I was lucky enough to be a Moderator on his official forum (KanYeLive) for a year and have seen him live 5 times now, which has allowed me to see and meet some of the most passionate music lovers around. KanYe is one of the most important people in my life and if it wasn’t for him then I wouldn’t be writing this blog or listening to half of the music I do now. He is simply a modern day genius and will go down in history as one of the most influential and iconic artists our generation. Tracklist and download link after the jump.

Next: Michael Jackson.
