Kanye West

15 years ago by Dan Leroy
This has been touted as the year's most anticipated release -- less because of what Kanye West has achieved as half of Roc-A-Fella's hitmaking house production team, and more because of what he represents: The long-awaited bridge between hip-hop's over- and underground, he's a guy who admits that he wants...

Kanye West Doubles Down on Donald Trump and Finally Breaks the Internet

10 months ago by Cory Garcia
On Wednesday afternoon, it felt like the world stopped for a few hours. Hot sports takes were put on the backburner, crime junkies temporarily forgot about the arrest of the Golden State Killer and the hype over Infinity War briefly went silent.
