Jul 3 - Kanye West Says "No" To Rappers
 

 
Kanye West Says "No" To Rappers
July 2nd, 2007 | Author: Andres TardioKanye West is ready to graduate. With his LP dropping, West recently spoke on a few things and said a few things that could get him in trouble.

This time around, he decided to not let any artists on the album, aside from a Jeezy adlib. Why?

"I don't have any rappers on my album...Not just because I'm trying to make a statement of being an MC — I want people to get into my album and zone out. You never asked Marvin Gaye, 'You have such and such doing a background track?' I do have an ad-lib from [Young] Jeezy. That's because he has that line, 'Hey Snowman, can I get an ad-lib?' So I asked for an ad-lib. Where the rappers do appear is on the remixes," Kanye told MTV.
This past weekend, West paid tribute to Princess Diana by performing at a concert thrown by Prince William and Prince Harry. The rapper joined the likes of Lily Allen, Elton John, Duran Duran and Diddy.


Although he had a short set, which included "Gold Digger" and "Stronger", West said he would do his best to perform for the huge crowd at Wembley Stadium in London.

“We've only got 7 minutes but we are gonna rip this stage in half. This one is for Diana,” he told the audience.


Controversy doesn't leave West alone. As he performed "Jesus Walks:, viewers could hear the word "ni-gas" in the intro to the song. On "Touch the Sky", West said the word "sh-t" in one of the verses.

According to MTV in the UK, this could potentially hurt BBC and other channels that had the concert on live.
Graduation drops this Summer.

No guest rappers? Not a fan of that idea, I'll of course have to hear the album before I can actually judge, but I personally don't think Kanye is a very good rapper, hopefully he's improved.

^^^ I like the idea. Maybe a verse from Common would have been good

Sometimes an album can have so many features you can't call it a solo effort.

i like guest spots too but he said they will be on the remixes so maybe he plans on bringing out a remix album.

i'm a huge fan of the idea of not having guests...albums today have like 3 solo tracks and 13 guests....

i'm just not a big fan of Kanye West, unfortunately...

Good. No guests. This will make him prove himself as a credible STANDALONE artist instead of some manufactured product to be consumed by all of the sheep.

yep like fab's new album has features on every track and the album was wack...fab fell off hard. and i was major dissappointed. but kanye dont need no help from other rappers he's a real musician...he actually cares about his production, he cares about his message, he cares about if people can really relate and understand what he is saying most rappers dont give a sh*t there in the studio to make hits thats all...they say anything that sounds nice on track then they make paper...kanye is trying to give the fans something to hold on to i mean you can't listen to tracks like white girl, cake, i get money, and say i can relate to that sh*t...cus most folk can't relate to that sh*t...it jus sounds good..and most rappers stretch monetary value and dont know how much weight there really talken about why there lyrics are jus face value..like if they talken about guns they say heater, gun, etc. etc. they dont say make and sh*t usually...same wit drugs they always say 8 ball but that aint that much money but they still say they got ki's and sh*t..if they dealt as much weight as they said they wouldn't need to rap..

I dunno if you have ever said it before but when a rapper has guests on his album n*ggas complain about "the good ol' days" when a rappers album was that rappers album and not a compilation so when a rapper finally keeps his album his album, people doubt that it will be any good. n*ggas....

I would generally agree that rappers should carry their albums, have few or no guests, but while Kanye might consider himself a rapper first and a producer second, I think he has said that he's been rapping longer, I think he's a far better producer than rapper, so I'd put him more in the Dr. Dre/Pete Rock category. So, I'd rather have a "Chronic" or "Soul Survivor" type album, at least based on his previous albums, it is possible that he's taken a big leap as a rapper, I'm not writing the album off by any means, I'm looking forward to it, since he's been trying some different stuff, in terms of production, since his last album.

i could see him doing something similar to Diamonds (Remix) on Late Registration where it was just Jay-Z on it. Jay has been on both of the previous albums and both songs were very well done, so hopefully hes on it again. The no rapper thing seems like bullsh*t also, because didn't kanye come out and say that him and Com had a song called "The Glory" that was gunna be on Graduation. I still think some rappers are gunna make an appearance.

I personally think Kanye is a good rapper and capable of holding his own on a album by himself. Alot of people dont like him cause he wont shoot nobody or pitch a onion to a fiend and actually raps about his life but its refreshing sometimes. His first album is crack. His 2nd has its shining moments, so Imma be waiting for this one.

I'm all for what he raps about and what he tries to do, it's the execution I have an issue with.
