Musicians are complex people. Being a musician personally, we beat to our own drum. For some of us, keeping a steady beat seems to be near impossible. Kanye West is one of those. The man, regardless of personal opinions of him, is quite talented. Most might be shocked to know that since 2000, he’s won a whopping 21 Grammys. Also, he’s had “pop” success on the Billboard Hot 100 – that only happens every so often with rappers.
As science puts it, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” In the case of “Mr. West,” for every accomplishment, he seems to misstep. Mainly, West’s mouth gets him into a world of trouble. Taylor Swift is the biggest faux pas. But there’s also former President George W. Bush, the infamous “Famous” video, and a near mishap with Beck. Sigh – Mr. West is one of a kind.
