Thought I'd clarify that this article was about the

TEN BEST SONGS (not beats) produced by Kanye West.

Production involves more than just a beat, and he did PRODUCE every single song on the list. Anyway...

that was the worst top 10 ive ever seen....like, in anything
Let's see your list!

Also thank you guys so much for checking out the list / article. I’m glad you are all posting your favorites since the point of the article was to outline how much great music Kanye has contributed to the world and how people should stop dissing him. Of course our lists aren’t going to be the same, he’s put out too much good music and we are different people who relate to different things. The point is he impacts most peoples lives, in a very positive way. So quit with the hating on Yeezy. Whether you agree with my picks or not is irrelevant. I don't care that's not what this is about.

First of all, he did NOT produce "Flashing Lights", so take that off the list. Second of all, how can these not be included?...

Q: How complete were the actual beat and arrangement for “Flashing Lights” when it was played for Kanye? What were some things that were done to the song in post-production?

A: The entire beat was complete when I played the track for him. All that we added to the track was a live string section on top of the synth strings. He ended up writing the song the same night I played the track for him.



sorry

Define: production

pro·duc·tion/prəˈdəkSHən/

Noun:
The action of making or manufacturing from components or raw materials, or the process of being so manufactured

As I stated earlier there are many other production related jobs other than constructing the beat. Who mixed the vocal tracks? Who added the strings? Who mastered the song?

Congratulations on Hudson writing the instrumental, he did not produce the entire song. Kanye has a production credit for a reason, and it comes first for a reason.

i believe just blaze did testify, only song on LR not produced by kanye
No, sir.

Testify is a Commn song from the album Be which was produced by Kanye.

You're thinking about Touch The Sky which was produced be Just Blaze.

That sole reason is that he is Kanye West, Kanye doesn't play any string instruments, and even if he did he would be credited as the person who played the strings. If you want tell me he vocally produced the song then he would get a credit for vocal production. Mixing and mastering of the song would credit him as an engineer. He didn't produce this man let it go, there documented evidence of Kanye playing tracks for dudes back in the day that weren't his, it's business. He's still a lyrical motherfu*kin wordsmith genius.

He also didn't do Big Brother, Can't Tell Me Nothing, And I really don't think he produced anything on WTT.

The issue I take is with the fact that people make this argument against half his tracks. People were saying the same thing about "Power" a few pages back despite him literally saying he spent roughly 5000 hours on the composition of the track. Of course E. Hudson is gonna take all the credit. You really think that sh*t comes out like that without Yeezy touching it? "Oh he added a couple of strings" YEAH RIGHT. It's fu*kin YE.

All I'm reading about here is Hudson sending Kanye an incomplete track, that never made it to airwaves in that version. Edited by Kanye during post-production (maybe even production) and crediting Kanye West as a producer. There is no version of Flashing Lights in existence Kanye didn't have a hand in the production in.

I'm aware he didn't do the song Big Brother. He also isn't credited for it anywhere. Unlike this song, where he is credited on just about every single writeup ever written about it.

what about be (intro) .. all of the lights? .. run this town.. this n*gga has too many great beats..

yeezus
Absolutely, so many good tracks. Person to go first with their list definitely can't win lol. Either way I'm happy about all the insight. All Of The Lights has been repeated so many times in this thread, I was unaware it was so popular.
