Why I Hate That I Like Kanye West

There aren’t many artists that I know that really get under my skin. I’m talking for the good and the bad. Let’s see – we’re talking Chris Brown (bad), Rihanna (good then bad), Ne-Yo (really good)…and then, and then there’s Kanye West. Sure, most of might dismiss him because he comes off like the cockiest mo-fo you’ve ever seen. No doubt. I don’t disagree with you there.

But that would be too easy.

Because Kanye is one of the only artists who likes to lead. Sure he samples. But as much as he takes he also gives back. What catchy Kanye song didn’t make the other band more famous? I mean Daft Punk must be thanking their lucky stars that Kanye wanted to sample their song Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

His collaborations with pop artists like Murakami or KAWS and his willingness to try out new beats makes him a pioneer. A trendsetter that doesn’t give a flying f*** what other people think. And for that very reason..I hate that I like Kanye West.

I think this begs a bigger question. Can we love the artist but hate the man? Can we separate the two?

How do you feel about him?
