Too bad he cant freestyle and his beats and raps are canned as beans.
I'm constantly amazed that Jay-z has anything to do with him(which lets be real is his only thread to that world).
sorry Kanye hater here.
Talib Kweli and Mos Def still killin it tho.
Who cares if he can't freestyle? Nobody really even freestyles anymore, they all write their shit before.
Kanye did get big because of Jay-Z, but he has been thr biggest name in hip-hop, and even just music, for like the past 5 years.
"Beats and raps canned as beans" I'm not even sure what that means, but he's pretty much the best producer out there.
