Trying to understand a person like Kanye West is like trying to understand the stock market, he changes everyday sometimes unexpectedly and says things that can break the internet in seconds blowing up social media. The rapper who was born and raised in Chicago with an impressive rap career that he built by himself often times feels that hes misunderstood. From the perspective of people like you and I he may seem arrogant, full of himself, brutally honest, maybe even a little crazy. But the man in my opinion is just trying to shape culture and change the world. I’m honestly not a Kanye West supporter, I like his music and sometimes I find his attitude really funny, but I wouldn’t vote for him for president. Aside from his character West has influenced hip hop in a lot of ways and he has many hits he continues to make to this day. Coming into the genre he didn’t fit the status quo of the general rapper of the time, he was middle class college dropout who was artsy and different than most. He finally succeeded with his album drop “The College Dropout” and became and instant star. His constant change in individuality and identity often makes it difficult to give him a sense of self. Although Kanye has a very interesting personality, he opened the door for a lot of artists today and paved the way for pop culture and music in many ways. He will definitely be a huge name for many years to come.
