Kanye West expresses his anger towards MediaTakeOut and says his music is perfect while performing in Atlantic City. Is Kanye West putting out the best music right now?
Music can never be perfect dumbass , Neither can a person. Number Two, There’s no more artist development in the Industry anymore. Record companies just want a bunch of Talentless Acts On the street to brainwash the Culture. So Really What Competition Do You Have Kanye West?
It was a yes or no question that requires a YES!
he is deff putting out the best music by far, no ones touching him
@chasemillions Oh u mad bro?
@chasemillions damn my guy you sound like an extreme hater like ye fucked your girl or something and who said music can’t be perfected if flows can be perfected why not music? Nobody right now putting out better quality music than ye shit what was the last weak song he dropped??? Ill wait
How he can be putting out perfect music when none of his music is touching his earlier stuff? Was MBDTF better then College Dropoff?????? Also lets be honest both Nas & Kendrick are putting out the best music right now. Nas is killing every verse he’s been on. All three of his singles, Nasty, Don, and Daughters are smashes. Kendrick all three of his tapes his ep, mixtape and album are dame near classic. Do u think Kanye is touching Kendrick lyrically??????
No, he’s not touching Kendrick lyrically, but no one matches the words to the beats like Kanye, aka everything that encompasses the music. AKA what he’s been doing since day 1 aka what no one is fucking with him on
lmfao to the kendrick lamar comparisons.
but yes, not just now, always
Somebody name Kanye’s 20 greatest beats and then let’s find out how many “associate” producers were on those tracks with him and how much those tracks sound like the original music he sampled it from. Most of it sounds identical to the original track.
Kanye has a great ear for taking music that isn’t hiphop and then introducing it to hiphop by simply rhyming over it and changing very little of it. when I read his credits its like 4 or 5 producers on 1 track for a lot of his most recent work.
Kanye is a great all around artist but he is by far the most overrated producer in the world and if his music is perfect, he has a ton of other people as well as the original artists to thank for it. Again, I’ll wait for someone to post his 5, 10, 15, 20 greatest songs and beats and then we can begin to dismantle that bullshit.
Be sure to look up the credits and samples before you post it so you don’t get embarrassed.
Kanye is a slick rapper who says some funny shit, but he is no where near the best lyricist in the game, if you think Kanye is lyrically nicer than his partner in “The Throne”, you need your head examined.
Seriously, Kanye hasn’t put out a bad album yet. YES!!!, Kanye is putting out the best music right now.
Yes he is putting out the best music right now. Lyrically he is slept on, nd just overall the amount of different angles he comes from, I would give it to him. Jay the GOAT tho idk…# imjustsaying
@on blast you have a point but sampling is the essence of hip hop in fashion designers sample all day everyday in art you have to draw basic inspiration from your predecessors to create a nuance in the medium . there is nothing new under the sun every now and then the universe gives us genius moments where you invent something new in an art form but those genius moments are fleeting he is not the best .
side bar WWT 2 has and jay -z 2tracks from dre 2 tracks from swizz ye pharell jahill beats hit boy ryan leslie ski primo 9TH WONDER pete rock
@onblast are you “blasting” kanye cause he actually gives credit to people who work on the songs? do you watch interviews when they say artist give ideas, input and lines then they get credit on the songs? have you ever heard someone say they didn’t get enough cred for working on a Kanye record? You are assuming that because someone gets a line credit that their work level was the same as Kanye’s which makes no sense.
I recognize most of Kanye’s samples when i hear them, and i think wow this dude is crazy with it, how did he come up with this perfect pattern around this sample. Everyone has the same music available to them and nobody is putting together quality samples like ye. Calling him overrated isn’t wise. Who exactly is the best producer? MOST producers have a sound you go to them for, when you go to Kanye that sound is more diverse. Once again not sure what your criticism is, there are videos already breaking down his samples which usually makes people appreciate it more. Thats artistry not overrated.
Yeezy should not even be worrying about media takeout… whos telling him about all that shit. only women.. cause far as i know.. only bitches be on media takeout
LMFAOOOO @ Kendrick Lamar even being mentioned on this post.. in comments to be in this conversation..
First off.. Are we really debating who sells more, purely the lyrics, production or ALL the above?
1. I mean if we really want to get technical right now, if KanYe was to put out a album without leaking any of his shit (like My Beautiful dark twisted fantasy, which in my eyes HE LEAKED way too much of his shit).. it would sell like crazy.. He could sell 1 million albums right now..in 2 weeks.
2. As far as the beats and production? Is that really even a question Nigga? I mean it’s not even close.. #imjustsayin
3. Lyrically KanYe is on a another level… besides the fact that he can make a raw Hip Hop Record.. the Nigga can come out with the most Commercial bubble gum shit and still be just as effective.. and even at that.. Think about some of the records this nigga has been on in the last 3-6 months??? It’s a fucking landslide win for KanYe.
The ability to mention… ” Can a Young nigga get money anymore with Kim Kardashian in the rap.. and it come out tight.. Can’t be denied ”
KanYe West >>>> ______________ + Kendrick + Nas
@Narco… In my opinion a great sample is something Havoc did for Shook Ones Part 2. There was a video that came out about 2 years ago where they finally found/broke down the sample he used from a Herbie Hancock song, the beat he built around it is completely different and the sample is only noticeable after the beat is broken down.
That, in my opinion is true talented sampling and true talented beat making.
What Kanye does is take sounds that he is exposed to (a lot of time just by being overseas) and raps over them. He also uses several other producers on the song and that’s a lot of input to just give one person “genius” credit. Kanye has a great ear for music, but there was a point in time I said Rick Ross had a great ear for music too.
Ofcourse I’m not criticizing him for giving credit to other producers he works with, that doesn’t even come across in my first statement. I am saying there are far better producers that do more work on their own, sample songs and build their own beats around those samples. Kanye is simply a guy who hears music and is able to rap over it and make it sound good, all credit to that…. but that is not “genius” by a long shot, that’s adventurous and it pays off for him well.
I still want someone to take the challenge, give me your top 5, 10, 15 etc Kanye beats and let’s see how similar they are to the original and how much he didn’t build anything around it and just raps over the beat, and let’s see how many producers are on the one track, dude is highly overrated.
Can the N*gga go back to Paris(His Song) and Stay and take Eurotrash Kardashian with him. j/k Thats the great lyricist Song Not Mine…. People need to let it go his time has been up its like the New Generation has already came in and pushed him out. Yes rappers get pushed out fast our tolerence grows thin for them because they almost always get beside themselves and their community. They sell out quicker than any other Genre and does our loyality when they shamelessly sell their souls. They always forget where they come from and there real fan base. Before Kanye turned pop he had the ear of the streets. Now most are bought and paid for before they even begin. Its a manufactured Business the music industry…. You guys say Lyrically he is the best and he raps about womens skin colors and how much money he has….. Basically you all are Garbage if you dont have his money and if your a black chick and your dark you are basically worthless he is not attracted to you, You are not the best….. LOL Lyrically that makes him the best. LMAOOO You people are so brainwashed you are Nutts…..Black men in Rap lyrics are more racist against their own then the Klu Klux Klan…. Best Lyricist. LOL Yall need to get your life. I mean OMG can we say White Hot in 2004 but sometimes the public need to let some rappers go accept they are not cool anymore and move on. I mean Hey Ja Rule was Hot, Nelly was Hot, 50 was Hot but now its time to let Kanye go out. Its like all these publicity stunts Scream Desperation yes we liked some of your songs but hell we liked all of the songs from all the rappers mentioned. Over rated is a understatement. The music industry has already replaced him. The Duets with Jay Z and him are the only reason why his music is getting mentioned and such world wide attention. Nobody cares and people are more disgusted by his forced on the public relationships than his music. He is more Controversial off stage for his mommy and Daddy issue type behavior than his music. George Bush Dont Like Black People…. Uhmm Think Again Kanyes Lyrics he sounds like he is the One that dont like Black people…. A Colorstruck Negroe criticizing someone of not liking black people… Oh and his publicity stunts with the overbronzed Los Angeles own version of overhyped Media manufactured Eurotrash on his arm. You can sense the desperation from the both of them…. LOL
He is the lamest lyricist. All he does is rant about how great he is and how not black his girlfriends are GTFOH with that predictable clown. When you listen to his lyrics he becomes offensive to black women so yeah just listen to his boring beats I’d rather hear Will IAM…. Hype and attention. Do we really wanna see him or his manufactured Porno star girlfriend or whatever. The most interesting thing about the Kardashians is that Black people are either to dumb or Shallow or maybe glamoured by other nationalities to see how they use them over and over and over. That many black men havent been used so much for money since slavery…. It cant be that serious for their men to have a non black lady that bad. I say Rick Ross is Whats up today…. the next up to bat… Lets see if the money power and fame make him sell his soul….
* Anybody can steal a song that they like that was already previously recorded. Big Deal. Nicki Minaj had a better verse then Kanye On Monster…. Fabulous has way slicker lyrics. Drake producers gave him beats that are just as good and equally as creative.
Supamum and Natasha:I agree with both of you. As I was surfing the bgsoolhere, I left a harsh comment on someone’s blog because they were complaining about the looting. They couldn’t understand why people couldn’t wait for help…nicely. How conveninent of this person to forget that these people had been waiting for help for days without outside communication: no TV’s, cell phones or internet. Oh, and don’t let me forget to mention without WATER, FOOD, AND MEDICAL ATTENTION!! There was no leadership or law enforcement. This equals anarchy, the total deterioration of soceity. No one was telling them that help was coming…someday. I also explained that if I had been in the same situation, I would have looted to feed my 7 kids, without a second thought. (And I am a law abiding citizen.) There are people that will follow their political parties blindly and disregard the blatant evidence of their parties’ deliberate decisions that cause harm. I cannot and will not do so. We all have the same blood running through our veins. We all deserve respect, dignity and humane treatment, regardless of our: income, race, religion or political party. It seems that there are many people that cannot do this. They have become cultish in their political beliefs. I am: a human being, a woman, a Christian and a mother. These people describe themselves as their party first, forgetting that humans make the world go round not the donkeys and the elephants. I was unaware of the Aussie’s that were stranded. I hope that they are able to escape the disaster area and return home safely as soon as possible. Unfortuantely, it seems that they also have been caught in the middle of politics. Ticklebug:I am glad that I was able to help you see things in a different perspective…csc5502d:I visited your blog. I too was ostracized and alienated due to prejudice. But unlike you, it has given me empathy and compassion. You are being fueled by your anger and feelings of injustice and “victimhood”. You say that you are not racist, but you spewed alot of venom towards the black community. Before you throw some poison my way, suffice it to say, I am not black, but I have been treated with the same racism. I know how it feels to live and deal with White America. My children attend a school that consists of 94% caucasian. They have lived here since they were 4,3,2, and 8 mos. and the other two were born here. They are still called racial slurs on an everyday basis. They have learned that not everyone has the ability to see a human being, some see color or other ethnic traits. Still, they do not cause others the same pain. They do not continue to perpetuate the racial divide that is eminent in America. And for that I thank God.
I used to be a big fan of this guy; huge fan. Something is going on with him, something on a “war with yourself” level. Anyways, he’s wrong. The best music is coming from a young righteous brother named Kendrick Lamar. No if, ands or buts about it.
Perfection..like beauty is subjective. I hate when he makes comments like this. His genius is definitely in the left brain because he is a poor communicator outside of his rhymes. He’s on my top ten for ppl I wldnt want to have a convo with. His music is consistently “good” and that’s no easy feat. I do think his beat production is crazy but yes its overrated. He pulls a lot of good sounds/composers and samples together. He wld make an awesome DJ. But since he can’t play keys or read music..I can’t give him perfection. Not at least from my stance. Lyrically I love his wordplay but his content is slipping away. I don’t feel inspired or moved by it. The jewels in his verses have dissappeared. He about “that life” now. The rawness and purity of a man becomes extinguished at that level. I still rock wit kanye I just hate that he’s lost his mind…or found it.
Jeffrey:Why is it that the focus in America is on the few ignorant and poor that thgouht of looting TV”s (when there wasn’t any electricity to use them)? Obviously, people seemed to forget that looting usually follows emergency situations. Remember the power outage on the east coast 2 years ago? Many stores in my old neoghborhood in NYC were looted icluding: Duane Reade, Gem and Mr. Sports. These consisted of a pharmacy, a convenience store and a sports store (full of Nike’s and Timberlands). Those are just a few that I named. Unfortunately, when there are disasters of any kind, looting occurs. Psst…: It even happened at Ground Zero 9/11/01. Yup, there are people that react that way. Just like many cheat on their taxes (and/or their spouses) and rationalize it. Some people run red lights. Others think it is ok to go to the neighborhhod bar, drink a few beers and/or shots and then get behind the wheel. Therefore, risking someone else’s life. In each case, the person rationalizes their actions. Maybe, that can help you understand the looting. Let me give you another example: the country is in turmoil with a war on another land and a natural disaster and some business owners think it’s alright to price gouge the gas prices. Do you understand what I mean? They don’t think it is highway robbery, but you may not agree… I hope my explanantion helps.

your ass been blasted
Yall stupid, fuck kanye with his faggot ass… All you niggas that listen too that shit is a bunch of Dick lickers…
I think West is just another self-centered, arrogant, racist jackass who thinks that the world revolves around him, and he proved it with the Taylor Swift disgraceful incident.
He thinks he is so wonderful, but too bad, but he’s al little more “sub” than average.
Lol get off this nigga dick
I like your comments choo choo. U went there. LMAO. But what do u think about exprobation officer taking on identity of the real Rick Ross name and making hits? Real Rick Ross was not a rapper or in music industry.

Kanye West.. One of the Illest beat kings of all time,for me,I think “Good To You” by Talib Kweli (where he samples Al Green,is his dopest of all time (or so far!).. However,he stains his musical ingenius by his fucking Ego! So let me say enuf with Yeezy for now.. I just want to tell the world about one of the most soulful and gifted “ProduSir” that hip hop has ever been blessed with.. The Mighty,Great and Late J DILLA (nee JAY DEE)! Ladies and gentlemen,this man made music that touch the soul (to its core).. Evidence of that is heard thru joints like Common’s “The light”,”Love is..” and “So far to go”, Busta Rhymes’s “Live it up” and “You Can’t Hold The Torch”,Q Tip’s “Move” and Janet Jackson’s “Got til its gone”(uncredited).. These classics are just to name a few that Mr Yancey crafted.. He even went as far as using spoons,tables and unusual percussion to polish nd create new sounds.. He made music authentically,and for that I name his The MOST GIFTED producer of all time!!!! R.I.P
I dont care about kanye west. What i care about is how sick many of you are. Heres a quote from in my opinion the greatest rapper of all time whats life as a rap star without god? This is truly sick, a man disrespects god and thats ok. Calling your own music perfect is ignorant, disrespectful and sick. K so his music is perfect right, lets roll with that. Well i know plenty of people who dont like his music and dont even like hip hop music at all.
Michael Jackson, Tupac, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis the fucking beetles have all had far more impact on music then he could ever imagine but at the same time none of these artist where anywhere near perfect.
ROFLMAO! Kanye West’s “music is perfect”?? FFS — West’s “music” isn’t even MUSIC! It’s garbage. No one I know even listens to it voluntarily. (We have to be stuck in an elevator or something to listen to it.) The guy’s ego is frighteningly “off”. I hope he eventually grows a brain and then is forced to listen to his own recordings and read the drivel that is currently coming out of him (like diarrhea). It’s only fair that he be tortured, as he is torturing all of us now.
He calls that shit music?
@response to LK
I’m sorry to be “that” guy but “All of the Lights” is my favorite Kanye song. There is a difference between sampling and writing a song inspired by another. Ye may have taken a short motif from Conti here and there but coming from a music history major, this is how music has worked since I don’t know, like maybe the Baroque era.
In short, give Ye his credit when he actually creates something fresh.
Kayne wore a dress on stage. Dude is a fag and perfection don’t exist lil homies. Be real with it.
I would say Ye is the greatest music mind in hip hop. Yes he samples, yes Consequence used to write his rhymes, yes he has many people co producing his tracks, but still no one manages to blend hip hop with soul music, club music, euro music with raw lyrics and do it in a way that is appealing to the masses. No one is able to combine all these elements of music and lyrical form in the way that Ye does.
Jay-z said “Went on MTV with du-rags, I made them love you.” Ye almost singlehandedly changed the fashion game in hip hop. If it weren’t for him, dudes might still be rockin throw backs. Well Kanye made it so that rappers such as Big Sean, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lupe Fiasco, etc etc have been able to have a rap career. If it wasn’t for Ye, the game would still be full of studio gangstas.
Ye brought common into the mainstream, resurrected Pusha and Q-Tip’s career… catapaulted JOhn Legend’s career… made Big Sean, made kid Cudi… big part of THE BLUEPRINT (greatest hip hop album of all time). Does tracks with hip hop greats, i.e. RZA, Pete Rock, Raekwon…
Kanye has also been one of the only artist in hip hop who is not an industry puppet. He makes the music HE wants to make and he says whats on his mind and how he feels. Dude is strictly about the music, he doesn’t do endorsements, he’s not an image conscious commercially driven rapper and he takes risks.
If it weren’t for Kanye, I don’t know where hip hop would be.
Best comment on this post. I’m amazed at how well you summed up Kanye’s impact on Hip Hop today. Beautifully said. 100% truth.
Kanye, you’re a f*cking retard. You don’t make good music let alone perfect music cos I cant stand the sound of it. If it was perfect I’d want to listen but because there’s an arrogant delusional prick making it, I can’t bear it. Perfect not by a long shot
With a jaw like that you can tell he’s a bottom feeder
