Would of been if they didn't silence big chunks out every other word, the commentary was the funniest with Ant & Dec constantly checking Kanye was not going to run up and stop them, and referencing Taylor Swift.

Beats... I used to listen to old kanye shit just for his production, it's kinda like 'yeah bruh, you can rap whatever the fuck you like over this... I'll still bob my head' I don't think many people listen to Ye for his lyrical content or even delivery. Guy just makes fire beats.

Edit: which is partially why I don't really fuck with dude anymore. Beats are still nice production wise but not really as much my thing as his earlier work.

he doesn't really produce beats anymore -- if you check the credits, it's usually several lesser assistants co-producing the track (like Mike Dean, Malik Yusef, Kid Cudi sometimes, and like Arca or some shit)...even that Pusha T track was "co-produced" with another dude...like, what the fuck does that even mean?  the beat's pretty simplistic, did one do the snare while the other worked the hats?

imo it's late registration not dropout. That's one of the best albums ever made to me

And JF; have you never collaborated with other musicians before? It's pretty straightforward what co produced means

He's pop now, fortunately the pop cycle rotates pretty quickly, his music has fallen right off (even his good stuff was very derivative) his rhymes are more vacuous than ever, just the meltdown/divorce and further ridicule in the 'fashion world' that he is so desperate to be part of to come now.

Mike Dean is not really a lesser assistant, check his discogs, he is a fucking classically trained stoned genius and pioneer of the southern rap sound out of Houston in the 90's. He's getting paid mad grip to work with Jay and Ye, and it's not like he has anything left to prove, so why not?

Idk if Kanye ever really fulfilled the typical role of a producer. There's some interview out there where he said whenever he felt he wasn't good enough to create something (i.e. chop up a sample or make a decent bassline) he'd just call up Q-Tip or No I.D. or whoever and get them to do it. Sounds more like he was a creative director who knew what he wanted, but not how to do it himself. I'm guessing that that's something that continues through to this day with all these "co-producers". 

 

As for his music in general, he hasn't got much by way of introspective lyricism, he has some classic club bangers, but even when people say that Late Registration and College Dropout were "great", I can't help but cringe. Impressive for a pop rapper sure, and changed the landscape of popular hip hop (for the worse) definitely, but being influential and standing out in a sea of mediocrity aren't nearly enough to make something great IMO. As for Yeezus and MBDTF, ugh. If you asked me, I'd say that the only great album by Kanye with consistently great production was "Be" by Common, I still keep that in rotation.

Anyway that might have come off wrong. It's just... Co-produced is a completely normal thing in the music world. I don't think it takes away from yeezy's talent. It adds to it IMO. LeBron just became the all time assists leader in NBA front court history. That's not because he's a bullshitter, it's because he's one of the greatest to ever play

Co-produced in the Kanye sense means that the other guy came with the song, he did some minor tweaks, and they were cool with it because they got good payola, and because a co-writer credit on a KW record is good looks in terms of getting more well paid work in the future.

But normally its what G.Rod said.

There were a lot of interviews about the working process on MBDTF, Ye had a floor of a hotel booked out, the guys co writing the tracks and his technical crew Mike Dean etc. were holed up in there banging shit out and Ye would come through and pick what he wanted and tweak what he wanted, taking an editor/director role. It's not a secret or anything. Ye doesn't feel that this approach diminishes him artistically, he ultimately determines what the output is. Actually you could say he is more of a producer in the traditional sense of the term, rather than just a beatmaker. But whatever, I think he lost the plot around 808's. I take it you're a fan.
