There’s always a lot of arguments about hip-hop and rap legends. Who deserves to be titled the G.O.A.T.? Many hip-hop and rap artists are very successful and I don’t think you can talk about the greatest rapper of all time without considering Kanye West.
Kanye has come out with many albums during his career, the most recent being, “The Life of Pablo.” This is probably the best album that Yeezy has released. The flow, style and lyrics of the songs featured in this album are very unique and give a bit of insight into the life of Kanye. This album had several thousand digital downloads and is predicted to be number one on the Billboard top 200.
However, this isn’t his first album that’s been number one on the Billboard top 200. His albums, “Graduation,” selling 957,000 copies in the first week, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” which won a grammy award for best rap album, “Watch the Throne,” a collaboration with Jay-Z, which received seven grammy nominations and was certified to be platinum, and “Yeezus,” which received two grammy nominations for best rap album, are among a few of the reasons why Kanye West should be seen highly when talking about Legendary rappers. He clearly knows what the people want, having several grammy nominations and several number one albums.
Kanye has accomplished so much in his rap career, more than a lot of other rappers his age. Even though the media may make him look bad sometimes by making up fake stories and false accusations, all the feats he has accomplished throughout his career can’t go unnoticed. He put hours of work into his albums and got the recognition he deserved. He may be 39 years old, but I’m sure he’s got more planned for the future.
