Kanye's first three albums (The College Dropout, Late Registration, and Graduation) were all classics and are something that every rap fan has to listen to. His fourth album (808s & Heartbreak) was average, but that was when he started going downhill because of his depression that was caused by his mother's death. His fifth album (My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy) was also average, but this was where we first saw how egotistical he had become. His last two albums (Yeezus and The Life of Pablo) were just garbage and noise with no creative lyricism or unique beats. I miss the old Kanye! - rapaddict97
When was this scumbag ever good.
The 1st 3 albums (College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation) were amazing, his next 2 were good but... (808s & Heartbreak, MBDTF) he became a bit egotistical, his last 2 were kinda lame compared to his old stuff. He's still decent and hasn't gone downhill too bad. - AlphaQ
