Kanye Tops List For ’50 Genuinely Horrible Albums By Brilliant Artists’


The online debate was heavy when Vibe magazine and Billboard decided to release a top 50 rappers ever list, now Rolling Stone is coming with their own list.

This time, the list does not consist of the greatest rappers or anything of that nature, as they look at some of the worst work done by great artists. Kanye West was just shaded barely out of the top ten greatest hip hop artists by Billboard and Vibe, but he takes the crown for Rolling Stone‘s “50 Genuinely Horrible Albums By Brilliant Artists.”

They wrote: “They are certainly the worst works of his career, and it would be easy to pick Jesus Is King or Donda as the single lowest moment. But we’re going with 2018’s Ye because it marks the beginning of the most disastrous artistic and personal collapse in the history of popular music. Clocking in at a mere 23 minutes, the chaotic, half-baked album was cut in Wyoming right around the time he told TMZ that slavery was a ‘choice’ and started wearing a MAGA hat in public.”

“The uproar over his slavery remark caused him to rework many of the Ye lyrics over a frantic two weeks shortly before the album dropped,” Rolling Stone continued. “Which explains screeds like ‘Just imagine if they caught me on a wild day/Now I’m on 50 blogs gettin’ 50 calls/My wife callin’, screamin’, say, ‘We ’bout to lose it all.’” The Kanye scandals of 2018 seem almost quaint compared to his recent issues, but he’s never made music less vital than this.”


The pointed review was the only Hip Hop act in the Top 10, but not the full list. Lil Wayne’s 2010 album Rebirth also made this list at No. 24, while Run-DMC’s Crown Royal in 2001 came in at No. 27. Outkast’s Idlewild was a surprise for fans at No. 46. Others like Prince, Madonna, and The Jacksons also found themselves criticized.
