Opinion: Kanye West is a top five rapper of all time, he has influenced or changed the rap game with each album he's dropped, and he's a master manipulator of the media.

I wouldn’t know because I’m not a fan of rap music.

Nowhere near top 5.

I'd have to disagree. He's consistently dropped classic after classic, he beat out 50 Cent when gangsta rap was popular, he created a new wave of artists with 808s & Heartbreak (Bryson Tiller, Drake, etc., just to name a few), and a lot of other things.

He’s an influential artist for sure but his fame is majorly exacerbating a mental illness which I’m guessing began before he was famous. It’s sad in some ways.

I'm not entirely sure it's a mental illness. It might be but I definitely think he plays his issues up a lot for attention.

There’s been speculation about mental health problems which I’ve read about. His Wikipedia page has a section about it. He had some type of psychotic breakdown a year or so ago. Fame definitely messes with some people psychologically.

Agree up until the last part. Kanye has lost a lot of money because of piss poor decisions

That’s a pretty safe bet. I’ll go with if Susan Barb becomes president I’ll leave the country.

I personally don’t like his music but I think he does inspire lots of people and I think his comments about slavery was stupid but I respect his opinions even if they’re stupid
