Kanye West - Opinion Dividing Rapper Releases New Album Life of Pablo
Love him or hate him, there's only one Kanye West. The self-proclaimed musical genius might divide opinions but it's impossible to deny the mammoth influence of his eight album discography. Changing the face of hip hop in the early 2000s with his critically acclaimed debut The College Dropout, he's proceeded to take over the airwaves with later records like Yeezus (2013) and is now counted as one of the most influential musicians of the 21st century.
With every album, his sound grows and evolves alongside his ego. His most recent release The Life of Pablo (2016) has garnered the star even more critical acclaim - not least thanks to bombastic singles 'Famous', 'Father Stretch My Hands' and 'Fade'. With over 100 million digital downloads and 21 Grammy awards to his name, it's safe to say he's not going anywhere anytime soon. Grab Kanye West tickets at StubHub to see him in concert.
Kanye West - Multi-faceted Artist at the Top of his Game
After kickstarting his music career penning songs for celebrated stars like Ludacris and Alicia Keys, Kanye Omari West decided to chase his own deep-rooted ambition of rap stardom. In 2002, a near-fatal car accident brought about an epiphany and he promptly recorded his breakthrough single 'Through the Wire' with his jaw wired shut. The impressive feat endeared him to hip hop fans across the globe and set in motion his debut album The College Dropout - an instant smash hit. Named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, the record won Kanye his first Grammy Award and set the mark for an onslaught of chart dominance.
Reeling from the death of his mother and from breaking up with his fianc�e, Kanye recorded and released fourth album 808s and Heartbreak in 2008. It proved the pivotal point of his career, Kanye said at the time: "Hip hop is over for me now. From now on, I want to be seen alongside only the musicians you see in black and white photographs - Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles". At the time it received a lukewarm reception but the highly emotive, alternative hip hop album is retrospectively looked upon as one of the greatest modern musical masterpieces - and without it we'd have no Drake, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and more.
His sixth record Yeezus, previously hailed as his magnum opus, has only been trumped by his latest effort The Life of Pablo. The latest in his daring line of discs and one of the biggest records of 2016, the critically acclaimed album has left many wondering what else Kanye has left to achieve.
