The Good: If it was rap music made post-2000, and it was good, there was a pretty solid chance Kanye West was involved. Jay-Z, Common, Kid Cudi and John Legend have all experienced 'Ye's golden touch. Better though are Yeezy's own hits. He's sold over 25 million digital singles of tracks like 'Gold Digger,' 'Heartless' and 'Power' and millions more in albums.
The Bad: Kanye's mouth often gets him in trouble, whether it's bullying praying mantis-like country music star Taylor Swift at the VMAs or saying that President George W. Bush "doesn't care about black people."
The Disparaging Words: "Jackass," said President Barack Obama, after the VMA incident.
