can someone please explain to me exactly how Kanye was the most influencial artist? n dnt talk about songs that he produced... please explain to me how the G-Unit mixtapes wasnt the most influential thing that happened in the 2000's? EVERY new artist you see today was influenced by a mixtape, I reali dnt see anything special that Kanye did other than outselling FIF in the US in 2007 n basically opening the fldgates for wack rappers that wouldv neva made it in the early 2000's of hiphop, stop dicckriding n give proper facts, sh*t if you talk about rap n produce than even Pharrel n Timbo had an influence, wtf did Kanye bring to the table that was new?

You make a very strong case... Everything except 808's I loved.

Just to get by and the remix .... Still crazy as fu*k till this day!

You would have to put Jay right there beside him though truthfully.

I swear this the last time I'm responding because people don't know what they talking about



If you look at the HIPHOP record book almost every record is owned by Eminem how doesn't that effect hip hop? That's like saying stats don't matter in basketball




And you need to change your title because you don't know what running hiphop means just because you influenced hiphop don't mean you ran it running something means you was biggest name and was the most successful and once again the only year kanye was the most successful was 07

in 2004 he brought a different direction towards hip hop, having singles like All Falls Down and Jesus Walks when hip hop was still on the baggy clothes/jersey trend with a completely different set of singles popping at the time. Dude was on his own swag and people followed after(Lupe Fiasco, J. Cole, Blu, Fashawn) all these everyday man rappers are all products of Kanye's influence on mainstream hip hop. He also influenced the sampling game when he used a different method of soul sampling which was quickly imitated by several producers. Different than RZA and Pete Rock and anyone else who doing sh*t at the time. then in 2008 he released 808s which brought a new direction to hip hop again, rappers like Drake and Kid Cudi completely changed their focus on music and started rap/singing over cloudier beats making their emotions known. 40 said his whole style is based off Say You Will off Kanye.

that's all pop culture, the actual genre took no change to Eminem or G-Unit going damn near diamond every album. that's like saying Nicki Minaj is running hip hop right now when all she's gotta do it sell a lot without influencing or contributing anything.

Eminem ran Pop music and was the hip hop representative in popular culture. He didn't run hip hop. It would be like saying the Beastie Boys ran hip hop in the 80's and Vanilla Ice ran hip hop in the 90's. Yes the sales are there but are they a driving force behind the genre. No. They capitalize of the demographics of the sales territory and that's it. They far from run the genre, they are more so allowed to contribute and capitalize off of it

People be giving Kanye more credit than he deserves. I like kanye, but damn, the stuff that you guys are saying that he influenced was already there, it just wasn't mainstream. So, yes, he made it mainstream. Big fu*king deal. The man does make some good music, so I give him credit for that.

let me clear this up for you

IMPACT =/= INFLUENCE

what you just mentioned is IMPACT on the pop culture, that has NOTHING to do with hip hop

let me guess, if Eminem appears of Keeping up with the Kardashians he's influencing rap?

take your trolling elsewhere

you are a hip hop artist, but being popular among the masses isn't effecting the genre. like i said, if eminem came out in a reality show he'd be making impact on the pop culture but it would have nothing to do with hip hop.
