Kanye West

From Encyclopedia Dramatica
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Kanye West Autism Speaks.png

Kanye West aka Yeezy, Ye, (or whatever else he's currently calling himself) is an American rapper, designer, self-diagnosed bipolar attention whore and an actual 2020 USA Presidential candidate.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, and raised in Chicago, on the playground is where he spent most of his younger days; Chillin out maxing and relaxing all cool and all shooting some b-ball outside of the school...

Srsly though, West was raised in Chicago, and grew up around gangbangers and playas. We don't have much to say about his young adulthood years since that's BORING SHIT, LOL.

Kanye West has been at the forefront of much IRL and internet drama, and as a result, we here at Encyclopedia Dramatica are humbly taking on the vital public service of explaining his discography, musical career and political life to plebians such yourself. "Yeezus just rose again..."


Musical career

So, flash forward from West's youth, all the way up to the year 2000. It's the dawn of the Nu-Millennium and the new beginning of an endless age of shitty mass-produced pop music. Kanye West begins "producing" music/recordings for musicians on the rap label Roc-A-Fella Records; notably Jay-Z and Ludacris.

West next decides he wants to start making his OWN music, and goes to work on his first official studio album (technically it's called an LP, guiis!!). "The College Dropout" is released in 2004 and followed by his "Late Registration" and "Graduation" albums. Forming a trilogy, these 3 pop-hip-hop albums feature some of West's most accessible music, as well as singles "Jesus Walks" and "Gold Digger".

"808s and Heartbreaks" is released in 2008 and is notable for being the only Kanye West album to feature no explicit lyrics whatsoever, (well, it was, up until 2019's Jesus Is King album) and for its EXTENSIVE usage of Autotune. (Though to be fair, West used Autotune on the songs because his jaw was broken during the recording sessions for the album.)

And then - it all goes downhill... West goes on MTV's VMA, and tells Taylor Swift, to her face, that she shouldn't have won her award. He follows this up with random twitter beefs between him and "South Park" creators after being outed as an aficionado of "fishsticks" on said show.) West even got called out by then-President Obama, who called West a "jackass". West, however, not to be discouraged from "PRODUCING ART", locked himself up in a cabin in Hawaii, secluded himself from the outside world, and came back with the ideas for his much-praised 2010 album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy".

This album was followed up with 2013's "Yeezus" album, an industrial-style hip-hop album. The album cover for "Yeezus" was literally a coverless audio CD case with some red tape on the right side of the case. No, seriously, that was the "ART" that the self-proclaimed "Closest Thing To Einstein" came up with for his album. The "cover art" for "Yeezus" quickly became a meme, with many a custom cover artwork made based on it.

"The Life of Pablo"/"SWISH"/"So Help Me God" followed the Yeezus album. This album's releases were constantly postponed, renamed, and remixed before it finally arrived on the scene in 2016. Drama surrounded the release of "The Life of Pablo" as it was an online-only release, and was exclusive to Jay-Z's "lossless music streaming" site TiDAL. More e-drama ensued as West pulled the album several times after the official release date to re-remix, remove, and add tracks to the album. Truly "A LIVING WORK OF ART". This was followed by 2018's "Ye" album, which is so short in duration that it puts the black man to shame.

2019 began a shift in West's usual musical themes toward Christianity themes, as he went full-on-religious. He founded a gospel music group called "Sunday Service", began holding regular services across the country, and released his most current album, "Jesus Is King". Time will tell if this lasts.


Kanye and Politics

LOL, no


   
 
If my grandfather was here right now he would not let me back down! I don’t know I’m fittin’ to lose after this. It doesn’t matter though, cuz it ain’t about me. It’s about ideas, bro. New ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth,...

And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.
 


 
 

—West at the 2015 MTV VMAs, announcing his plans for a political career

Kanye West has long been "outspoken", and politics is no exception. West however, has gone from letting folks know "George Bush doesn't care about black people" in 2004, to pursuing the Presidency of the USA in 2020 2024 2020.


   
 
Blacks are 90% Democrats That sounds like control to me 🤔
 

 
 

Kanye West in early 2019, dropping Street Knowledge on his twitter audience.


Mista' West had planned to IRL-troll politics by srsly running for Prez of the USA in 2020; After meeting with Trump, West decided to postpone his run to 2024, simply because he believes that Trump will get elected for a second term in 2020. Word on tha streets, previously, was that he would probably run as a Republican or Independent. UPDATE: He gave up on The Donald and is running in the nutty year that is 2020 after all!!


Up until mid-2020, West was a known Trumper, having even met multiple times with (USA) President Trump from 2016-2018. 1. As of current times, West no longer wears the fabled red cap of Trumpers, while still claiming Trump to be “the closest president ... in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”

On July 4, the year of our Lord 2020, Kanye West shocked the political landscape (at least as much as one could after 2016) with a big, girthy, announcement. West had decided to run in 2020 after all - against "Creepy Uncle Joe Biden" and incumbent USA Troll-In-Chief "The Donald". His new political party, "The Birthday Party" (fronted by Mr. West, his Wyoming pastor and nobody else) was also announced. While most of the world has laughed the campaign off as a stupid joke, Kayne seems to be taking very srsly. If he wins though, it'll be the biggest political troll since 4chan and Pepe the Frog memes catapulted a reality TV star an internet/twitter troll named Donald Trump to the White House in 2016. That's highly unlikely though since he missed the filing deadlines to be included on a number of state ballots as an independent candidate.
