"Yeezus"

Kanye’s First Misstep Is A Result Of His Insistence On Being Different

For better or for worse, everyone knows who Kanye West is and everyone has their own opinion of him. He hasn’t made it the easiest thing in the world to be a fan of his over the years. But if there is one thing that irrefutable, it is his ability to craft the leading Hip-Hop album of any year. Ye’s first few albums are all treated as classics. The College Dropout was his coming out party, as a rapper anyway. Late Registration cemented his position as a chart topper and an MC to watch. Graduation was a show of consistency. 808s & Heartbreak was innovative, popularised Auto-Tune and helped birth the new generation of music artist. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was a response to critics and a masterpiece. Again and again (and again and again) he proved doubters wrong and built his reputation as a genius, within music if not in fashion or politics. Even outside of his solo music, on Watch The Throne, it wasn’t remotely controversial to say Kanye West outdid JAY-Z. In 2013, two years after WTT and leading up to his next solo album, things were going as they usually did. There was the news that Daft Punk were scheduled to be working with Kanye. Travi$ Scott came out and said the LP was amazing. 2 Chainz agreed with him. Fans were in hysteria at any piece of news. In May, Ye tweeted “June Eighteen”, which was all anyone needed to be sent into a frenzy. Famously, this was on the same day as the late Mac Miller was set to release Watching Movies With The Sound Off, Statik Selektah was set to put out Extended Play and J. Cole, originally scheduled for a June 25th release of Born Sinner, pushed his album forward to go head to head with Ye in a show of friendly competition.
