Kanye West: Best Album of the 21st Century, or Nah? Jay R the Superstar | Nights

Kanye West: Best Album of the 21st Century, or Nah?

As heard in the past, Kanye West refers to himself as a creative genius. According to GQ magazine, West’s album; My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy -released in 2010- was named the best album of the 21st century. In the article, this is rationalized by the impact that the project has had; it also explains how powerful all of West’s projects have been.

“It could’ve been any one of the seven albums West released this century,” GQ says. “A portrait of a man seizing the spotlight, drowning in it, and then somehow finding a way to turn that harrowing experience into art. Anybody who wants to be famous or make music for a living—or do both at the same time—should be forced to listen to MBDTF first. The rest of us are free to enjoy it for the bloody, hard-won, titanic achievement that it is.”

In 2010, the album was reviewed by HipHopDX’s Editor-In-Chief at the time, Jake Paine; where it earned a 4.5 out of a 5.

“From nine-minute douchebag manifestos, to enlisting an A-list Grammy ensemble to piece-mealing his album out to the masses every Friday. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy defies logic and it ignores convention. Whether it’s acknowledging his mistakes, measuring his might, or fantasizing of wifing Kristina Rose, Kanye West finds a way to relate to all. He’s not forcing his hand, just reminding us that the biggest star we appointed in the last five years can still recognize our own fantasies, insecurities and desire for colorful music from his spaceship,” Paine wrote.

What is your opinion? Do you believe that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy deserves the tittle of best album?

Jeezy reveals cover art to “Seen It All: The Autobiography”; Illuminati or not?

     As Jeezy uploads a video via Instagram that slowly reveals the cover art for his forthcoming album, Seen it all: The Autobiography; fans are going crazy with Illuminati talk. The video slowly exposes the symbols on the artwork, and one such symbol is the notorious Eye of Providence. He then captioned it the “Realest album of the year.”      The album drops on September 2nd, already it has been revealed that the lead single and title track, “Seen It All,” features Jay Z and Cardo on the beat. The album is also expected to feature, T.I., Future, Game, and Wiz Khalifa on it.      As fans suspected that Jeezy was undeniably a member of the secret society, he denied any connection to the group. “Do not get art and creativity confused with ignorance,” he stated. “I am a hard-working, God-fearing man. I have no idea what an Illuminati is and really don’t give a damn ‘cause it has nothing to do with me. I just wanted to do something bigger. It’s kinda a dark album, so I just wanted it to have that mystique about it, something to keep as a collector’s edition.” Jeezy finished off by saying, “When you open that album and play that album, then we ain’t gon’ have this conversation. ‘Cause that music is A1.”
