Why Kanye West = God?

post #1 of 378
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

Yesterday, I read in the paper that Kanye West launched a new album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy".

And the article described him as the "new king of pop"...etc.

At home i downloaded the album and i didn't find it good at all....after a while when i listened to it as a whole, i got better.

 

Just as a matter of interest, what makes him so god-like?

And why is "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" regarded as a great symphony(?) by almost all known critics?

Don't get me wrong, he is one of my favourite artists (Graduation, 808s & Heartbreak, etc.), but i don't see him as a god either.

 

 

 

 

Thanks Head-Fiers

I dont like his music, it has become very commercial. 

Probably its just marketing...

Kanye wants to be God like the rest of his label/gang. But let's see who will be god first. Him or Jay... beyonce?

I'm an atheist, so I don't believe in Kanye.

I haven't heard anybody calling him god-like or saying he is a god.  However, in my opinion, the reason that the critics thought this album was so amazing was because it was so different from every other album that has been released.  All the beats, and lyrics are far from the mainstream music that all the other artists are releasing at this time. Just my take.  I don't think it is marketing because the amount of marketing that went into this album other than twitter was very minimal.  His music is actually far from mainstream, compared to so many other people in his genre

What's so special about?

Strangely distorted but, it doesn't really sound extraordinary, imo.

lol.....don't get fixed on the god thing.

Just to see what Google would think of him, I typed in "Kanye West is a" and the results weren't too nice (and god didn't come up).  I've enjoyed some of his works, but by no means is he the ultimate/best/baddest musician around.  I'll have to try out the latest album though, but I'm not expecting anything god-like.
