Kanye West - 'Hip Hop is over for me, I sing not rap on this album'

Kanye West - 'Hip Hop is over for me, I sing not rap on this album'
November 23, 2008 04:56PM


"The reason why I feel I had to give a little introductory speech before you heard the album is because this is not hip-hop music," he says. "Taking a sample, looping it and doing all that 'throw your hands up in the sky' thing has become such a clich?. Hip-hop is over for me. I sing, not rap, on this album. I now want to be grouped among those musicians you see in those old black and white photos - the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles. And I'm not going to get there by doing just another rap album full of samples. I've had to create a whole new musical genre to describe what I'm doing now and I'm calling it 'pop-art' - which is not to be confused with the visual art movement. I realise that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of a generation."

The current number #1 mainstream artist in Hip Hop (Lil Wayne not withstanding) at the height of his career has officially disowned the music genre and is in pursuit of developing a new genre he calls 'pop art'? Did the musicians Kanye reference felt the need to abandon the rock genre in order to 'take it to the next level' or did their contributions help redefine what rock music was? Of course at the end of the day Kanye is free to do what he want so:

SELLOUT OR GENIUS?

The album got a 5 star review in the Sunday Times today. Did they hear the same version I did or are they tone deaf?

terrible album was a hug fan of kanye until the graduation which was all right this has a few catchy songs but to do a full singin album when u cant sing is messed up. did he forget about t pain? that efect is cool to use in moderation, cher who orignated the sound must be happy anyways.

Current mood:
Has this sudden thing come from the death of his mam or what? It's a shame. It's a little bit ignorant turning your back on the genre that made him who he is today. Wonder how good he'd be vocally if he ditched the autotone bollox.

Current mood:
Just gave this album a few more listens and it's actually far, far better than folk give him credit for. Only listened to it with open ears for the first time basically.

There's no limit's to his talent. Honestly not. I don't like the whole "I'm through with samples" thing but I respect him higher now than I did last year. Even if the majority of artist's wanted to stray away from what they're known for, 99% of them wouldn't so fair play to him. I get the impression there isn't a field he doesn't think he could conqeur at the moment, not only a musical level. I see him being retired in a few years and focusing on something like politics or somethin along the lines.

Wouldn't put it past him. Top man.

In fairness though, the chaps speaking his mind. I bet half of the Music stars these days are stuck-up pricks, but they cover it up for their 'Image'. kanYe has never been afraid to speak his mind, and in a way that's quite admirable-large">!

I <3 Kanye!! yeh he comes across as a conceited mo'fo but f**k it, its the music that matters not his personality!
I love all of Kanyes stuff... old and new! Hiphop is brutal these days (lil wayne etc) it all sounds the same... at least Kanye is trying something different, even if its not everyones cup of tea!!

don't really like the music he's putting out now but whutever. he does his thing. he is not a musical genius but he makes nice pop songs.

Current mood:
I don't care that it isn't hip hop. It obviously isn't so I judge it as pop. But on those terms its utter shit. If Prince released this, at least the vocals would sound good, and it would probably get 1/5 stars from everywhere. Most music critics and alot of the public have totally lost perspective on this.

trend jumping. loads of mags missed musical trends in the 90s and got uber fucking scurred to shit because their weakness was shown so now anything a bit different and mainstream is hailed as genius. look at radiohead and prodigy ffs. people rave about them like they are better than butter or some shit. everybody is a faget.

It's absolute quality...

Still yet to get bored of it. Favourite album out of all of them.

He really has spat on the hand that has fed him for years though which I don't like but the album is sav-aj on a major scale.
