Kanye West - 10 years of creative genius. My YouTube playlist

I've been a fan of Kanye West for nearly 10 years now. To me, he is the most outstanding creative musical artist of the past 10 years. Many of his videos are really incredible with great production design. His songs are awesome too ranging from funny to personal to social commentary to noisy gangsta-type hiphop. And to top it off, he's no puppet - his work is all his own creativity.

Today I put together my ultimate Kanye West youtube playlist. It features my favourite songs of his plus I've also put in some great live performances and songs by other artists that Kanye features on.

Please check out my playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL488BE4F2A795B61A

I'd be interested to hear what you think? Any songs you particularly like/dislike? Songs I should include that I haven't got there? Other thoughts on Kanye?

Love all his stuff. 808s and Heartbreaks and BDTF are two of my favourite albums of all-time. Lost in the World, Street Lights, Runaway and Heartless are my favourite songs.

Re: Kanye West - 10 years of creative genius. My YouTube playlist

Kanye is good, and he just might be the best new artist of the 2000's. But I think that's less a function of his greatness (a great artist should be able to stand on his own and not need to feature another artist in order to make a great song.

True greats did little sampling and don't depend on duets or cameos to make a hit. Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and many more.

Re: Kanye West - 10 years of creative genius. My YouTube playlist

I think Kanye and Eminem have only rapping in common, which is actually 2 different styles of rapping but both venture off into 2 different categories. Kanye does more dance and club beats and Eminem goes off into his own little joke world. Kinda not comparable.

Sam Stosur - Casey Dellacqua
Marion Bartoli - Serena Williams
Jelena Dokic

Vladimira Uhlirova

Genius and Kanye remind me of the "Fishsticks" South Park episode
