Kanye is void of any originality
No wonder the album sounded forced and rushed, it never came from his heart.
this leaves a huge question mark on his previous works, wonder who else he jacked
Not only does he employ countless ghost writers, he now jacks art, concepts and sound
Another producer turned artist exposed as a thief
For the most part, Kanye's vision and ambition outweighs his actual talent (he's a competent beat maker though). He even said that in a 808's N Heartbreak interview, where he was talking about alot of his antics come from him overcompensating. That's a trait of most narcissist though, they're very image conscious and they often demand credit and admiration for abilities that they don't posses (i.e. Wale, Diddy, ect.). They're okay with the smoke and mirrors, as long as it helps them to have the image they're tryna project, even if they lack the actual abilities.
I remember watching the Kanye/Swizz Beats beat battle the summer of 07 around the time Kanye was promoting Graduation, and he played 2 instrumentals that he didn't even make. Down N Out, and Diamonds From Sierra Leon. But to his credit, he was never one to not list the actual beatmakers in the credits. But Steve Jobs did coin the phrase, "good artist copy, great artist steal" or something like that, so I don't know lol.
