When you think of Kanye West nowadays, you usually think headache. From his ongoing problems with Kim Kardashian, to example after example of wild comments or moments, Kanye has become someone most people love to hate.
Let's not forget to acknowledge the musical talent that he is. Kanye has produced and rapped in a long list of hits. Diamonds From Sierra Leone is probably my favorite rap track of all-time. Kanye's sample work in music production is second to none in music history. The 808s and Heartbreak album was unique and different from anything being produced in the genre at that time. Now so many artists are creating a similar style of music. Ye's influence has even reached the shoe game. Yeezy's have been one of the highest selling sneaker products of the past decade.
I fully get people's exhaustion with Kanye, but just wanted to quickly remind everyone of the upside.
