Okay, a lot of you know more about music and whatnot than me so…Kayne…
Genius, right? Incredibly influential over the last decade, maybe THE most influential artist in pop and rap, right?
This is a different question than “do you like him.” I just asking “who has had a bigger influence on music in the last ten years?”
It seems like whenever Kanye does something Kanye people- most often chunky white people I’ve noticed- wade in to slam him, I always post that he may act like a jackass sometimes, but nobody has done more to shift music and its relation to the culture at large than Kanye. A lot of people think that this is crazy. I don’t (obviously) I feel like he has influenced everybody from Jay Z to Adele, has changed the very foundation of rap in a lot of ways and is really pushing the bounds of what it means to be an artist, but I’m also not a music guy, so I have trouble backing these claims up.
