    Wish he did this more often, I still consider him to have fallen off around 2013

    he never really fell off though, he still has plenty of good songs. he just doesn't focus on music anymore which makes sense considering he can just buy shares in a product, talk about it on social media and about 3 years later he's made 60-100 mill.

    How did Kanye sell out lol, he's still one of the most creative artists, if he sold out he would be making pop songs like Em or some s---

    i prefer his first 3 albums, and Dark Twisted Fantasy was good too. after than he was chasing fame more than making good music.

    If he was chasing fame he could easily make a Graduation 2 and fill it with Good Life's. Yeezus is not the result of a man chasing fame.

    If anything Kanye did the opposite of selling out. He went on to make riskier music

    Probably the biggest sellout of all time tbh

    Yeah Ice Cube for sure, even if you discount all the movies and s---, from Death Certificate to Raw Footage is a very weird career trajectory

    Well the quality doesn't necessarily correlate with selling out
