his music is mediocre at best, mostly just trendy hits for the radio, but that's besides the point. that cocky motherfucker went as far as saying he was the spokesperson, and i quote "voice of this generation". he then proceeded to use this analogy- he is to music like michael jordan was to basketball.
"I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade, I will be the loudest voice," he said in an interview on Wednesday. "It's me settling into that position of just really accepting that it's one thing to say you want to do it and it's another thing to really end up being like Michael Jordan."

MJ? nooott even close, kanye.
i have to admit, i love kanye and his crazy antics... entertainment for sure. i can definitely understand why he's hated, but i take him for his entertainment value and just like to hear the crazy lines that seem to endlessly spew out of his mouth.
