Kanye West the Jordan of Music?

November 14, 2008

In a recent interview Kanye West claimed what Jordan is to basketball, Kanye is to music. No surprise from the hubris-inflated pop star. Par for the course. But then he went on to make the following claim:

I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade, I will be the loudest voice,” he said in an interview on Wednesday.

Kanye West–voice of this generation? What do you think?

    I would say his use of the word generation is suspect. He may be the voice of young black stars that have success and recognition in the music industry between 2006 and 2010 – but that hardly constitutes a generation nor does it span a decade.

    Exactly, ChipG.

    Could not identify his voice if I heard it. Like Trey says, he may dominate some small slice of the pie, but there are bigger fish to fry.

    “I’m just tryin’ to say…
    The way schools need teachas
    The way Kathy Lee needed Regis
    That’s the way I need Jesus”

    -Kanye West
