All his verses in 2012 were on point.



Plus, he had one of the most consistent verses in "Birthday suit"

it's 2013 and niccas clearly cannot tell the difference between a dope and wack kanye verse.

wack kanye verse=self-written

dope kanye verse=written by someone else

Kanye is great at what he does. He is not the most technically adept rapper. He knows how to put a high quality hip hop album together. I believe that is the most important ability a rapper should have and he has it.

you're confusing being a great rapper with being a great artist.

kanye is an incredible artist... but that has more to do with his production, the guests he features on his tracks, the ghostwriters he employs for his better verses, the visuals he picks for videos, the way he markets his stuff.

but kanye, as strictly a rapper (he he writes his own !!) is not very good.

Where is the logic here? Some of you are saying he can rap but acknowledge he has ghost writers?

I haven't !!ed with Kanye since College Dropout. Truth be told he ISN'T a good rapper. He needs to stick to making beats. Not only that, his antics make me dislike him even further.

But.... I will give credit where credit is due. He is a monster on making beats, but I've never liked him behind the mic.

Anyone with an unlimited promotional budget and ghost writers can come off as if they can rap. The argument would be much closer if he wrote his own !!.

You're putting him in the same box as Dr. Dre, just cause Cons said he wrote some !! for him doesn't mean he doesn't write his own lyrics in general. Cons doesn't know who's written for Kanye, he couldn't even answer that at the Breakfast club when he got put on the spot. Kanye credits his co-writers regardless so there's no secrets that Cons and Rhymefest have helped him pen verses. It's just now that it's coming out of Cons angry mouth that people want to pretend Kanye don't do !!.

yeah. as I said in my post I know he isn't the best when it comes to technical skill. but there a lot of rappers with good technical skills that can't make good albums. I was just stating his strength as a rapper and artist. More rappers/emcees should focus on that. That is the skill that will make a rapper memorable in the annals of music history.

nobody's saying ye doesn't write his own verses.... but clearly one can tell the difference between what kanye does and doesn't write.

i mean, even when his verse is trash he finds a way to include an incredible guest artist who either steals the show, or provides an amazing hook that completely distracts from whatever corny !! he spit.

that, or he employs someone like common or pusha to write him an incredible verse and everything just comes together perfectly.

either way, kanye as an artist doesn't miss the mark much. i'll never take that away from him. his production and guests are ALWAYS on point. i'ma fan of his albums.... i'm just not a fan of his self written verses.
