No matter what your personal feelings towards Yeezy, he is one of the greatest rap artists of our time. Having made his name as Jay-Z’s producer, he is an expert beat maker and that remains at the heart of West’s rap career. Think back to floor filler’s like ‘Gold Digger’ or ‘Jesus Walks’ and it is not hard to remember the talent behind the ego.
Much has been discussed of West’s 2017. Breakdowns on stage, fallouts with celebrity stars, closing down his social media accounts. This is not the behaviour we have come to expect from the Rap juggernaut. However, behind the scenes he has been getting on with business. With a back to basics approach to life it would appear, West is slowly getting back to his best. His first musical release since ‘The Life of Pablo,’ was ‘Dat Side’ with CyHi the Prince. Containing a simple beat and West’s trademark comic lyrics, we could be forgiven for thinking 2018 we could see Kanye West make his triumphant return to the limelight.
