While Kanye's self-love might be enough for him, there's still thousands of people worldwide that pour their heart for the "Can't Tell Me Nothing" crooner.
The newest So Amazin intern, Ari, happens to be one of these die hard Kayne fans. As soon as she was asked who some of her favorite artists were, she mentioned Kanye and focused mainly on him. Almost two years after the release of The Life of Pablo, Ari seemed to still be blown away by Kanye's line in "I Love Kanye"
We asked Ari to tell us exactly how she felt about one of her favorite rappers and her outlook on what he's done for not only hip-hop and music in general, but for the culture. Here's what she had to say about the autotune pioneer:
Who would make a song bashing himself, talking about how much better of a person he was in the past compared to present day? Then ending it saying he loves himself? Kanye would.
The real question here isn’t who would do it, but who would think to do it. Kanye is a musical genius, a trendsetter and risk taker. Kanye rolls the dice in this business. He is the reason newer artist such as Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Playboi Carti and many more are able to have a career in rap. He allowed music to be different. When Kanye first stepped into the game he was seen as a joke trying to make it while wearing pink polos and argyle sweaters. Rap was very masculine and “gangster”. Kanye changed that the second “The College Dropout” was released in 2004.
In my generation it’s hard for an artist to stay relevant. New artists come out every other month. Hit songs come and go, but Kanye is one of the few artists I know who has been able to stay at the top all these years. Every time he releases new album it gets attention from people of all ages. Whether you dislike Kanye because of his driven ego, media publicity stunts or tabloid marriage, there is no way you can say his music is trash. Every album and song is completely different. Throughout the years, Kanye changes his flow, which sometimes drives people crazy. . Try comparing his “Kon the Louis Vuitton Don” mixtape to his most recent album “The Life of Pablo”
"My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" was dropped when I was only 10 years old and still remains one of my all-time favorite albums. Whether I’m at school or in an environment with an older crowd I will always catch some people wearing a pair of Yeezys or oversized clothing inspired by his collections. No matter where you are or what age group you're talking to, everyone knows Kanye West. Everyone knows who he is, what he does, and that his name will forever be imprinted in the music industry.
