If you’re even the slightest bit a Kanye West fan, chances are you’ve ranked all his albums at one point or another. It’s almost become an Internet meme at this point and people can get pretty passionate about their opinions regarding Yeezy’s greatest work. Recently the Verge sat down with comedian Aziz Ansari and asked him for his ranking of all Kanye’s records, and the top spot was kind of a surprise.
At the top he actually has a tie. “There’s a tie up top, Watch The Throne and [My Beautiful Dark] Twisted Fantasy,” he said. After that, another tie for second place: Yeezus and The Life of Pablo. “Then Graduation. Then College Dropout. Then Late Registration. Oh my god, it’s so hard!”
After running down his list of Kanye records from best to worst and telling his famous Kanye listening to Kanye music story from around the 808s era — come to think of it, he didn’t rate 808s & Heartbreak, what the hell? — Aziz is asked about his favorite rap verse of all-time, and offers up DMX’s “What These B**ches Want” which he describes as, “That really silly DMX verse where he lists all his ex-girlfriends.” Then he goes off the dome with the entire list. “There was Brenda, LaTisha, Linda, Felicia/Dawn, LeShaun, Ines, and Alicia/Teresa, Monica, Sharron, Nicki/Lisa, Veronica, Karen, Vicky.”
