Love him or hate him, Kanye West is one of the most innovative and visionary artists out there. With his unparalleled flair for music and his dividing opinions, his business canny and crazy narcissistic moments, he remains a great hustler who fought his way to the spotlight with sweat, blood and tears.
Some call him crazy, others worship him as the Medici of our time, but in the midst of all the noise, let us not forget that accomplishing what Kanye West achieved is not given to everyone. People didn’t walk in Kanye’s shoes, they didn’t fight his battles and they didn’t make him any favor. If we can’t appreciate how far this man has come and how much he has contributed to the artistic scene, then we don’t deserve him in the first place.
Ellen DeGeneres, yet again, led the way and took a moment to make a wonderful tribute to Kanye, honoring him on her show through heart warming lyrics and beautiful words of admiration.
