Artist Biography Kanye West
In the span of a few years, from 2001 to 2004, went Kanye West from hip-hop beatmaker to worldwide hitmaker, as his work to produce stellar Jay-Z earned him a major label recording contract as a solo artist. He shows a dapper fashion sense that set him apart from most of his rap peers, and his confidence, as it often came across is, even egotistic, albeit amusing. This flamboyance, of course, good press, something West enjoyed plenty of during his sudden rise to celebrity. West also a flamboyant personality mark. Soon his beats were accompanied by their own witty raps on a number of critically and commercially successful releases. He was a treasure of media, appearing and performing at practically every major awards show (and win against them, too), delivering theatrical videos to MTV that has been made in itself, and any mouth off happened to cross his mind.
