Kanye Responds To EW’s Top Album Honor

On Monday, Entertainment Weekly crowned Kanye’s The College Dropout as the top album of the decade. Apparently, our post gave Ye a sense of nostalgia. Above, is his response to the accolade.

Heads Up: Stephon Johnson

    its a cool choice not sure if its the right one, when are we gonna STOP ranking shit though? It just so happens that the album dropped when hip hop reached its PEAK of popularity. Congrats to Kanye and to Hip Hop but im sure there’s over a million readers of that magazine that beg to differ.

  • dmc

    KANYE, that was a classy response. About time you didn’t let ur EGO get in the way and blow up on that. HOWEVER…The Marshall Mathers LP sold over 10 million copies, and as of 8/2009 has sold 19 million units worldwide. Fastest selling rap album…ever. How come you didn’t mention that but you mentioned “The Blueprint” which isn’t even Jay-Z’s best album (Black Album). Get off Gay-Z’s dick Kayne. Remember, “Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers don’t.” And to the haters: THESE ARE FACTS.

    He mentions The Blueprint because he produced 5 songs on the album and that placement opened up to the industry as a producer on the rise.

    Nice response by Yezzy to the article. Also nice to see him acknowledge Dame Dash. Just seeing Entertainment Weekly talking about hip hop is a good look. Personally I would have put Fif’s debut at the top of the pile based on the fact that to produce and rap takes talent and we saw Yeezy’s talent very early so we kinda guessed that he would only get better and he did. Even after GRODT blew up, no one expected the type of success (musically and otherwise) that Fif has enjoyed.

    Fuck that shit. 50 and Eminem got the best album of the 00’s!!!!!

  • ballybadman24

  • jimmythegent

    the reason 50 cent wasnt on there is becuz it of the decade. starting from 2000. so if a rapper came out wit a classic album in 2008 u think he wud get album of the decade! no!..50 came out in 03. He’ll get album of the century tho watch lol

  • monkeyseemonkeydo

    “Apparently, our post gave Ye a sense of nostalgia”

    Is that a joke?

  • koa29

    If u think about it, why do people hate on drake so much when in reality he’s somewhat like kanye? As far as not really having a “hard” past (besides kanye growing up with a single mother).. just a guy with a heart for hip hop..and ppl hatin like they hated on kanye when he first came out, now look, he blew up..drake will too..

  • deezy

    wheres eminem at? marshall mathers lp? i dont know about all this.. i would even say 50’s get rich or die tryin’s better than kanye’s shit… i know i know kayne is a genius but we’re talkin about The ACTUAL best rapper alive.. eminem.. marshall lp is a bonafide classic.

  • DILLINGERman

    @ DEEZY….YOU WOULD SAY? NIGGA GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN SHITSSSS ON THIS ALBUM!! THAT SHIT WAS THEEEE BEST ALBUM SINCE IT CAME OUT!! NO ONE HAS PUT OUT BETTER MATERIAL THAN THAT SHIT YET!!! CLASSICCCCC

  • JC

    ^gtfo dickriders and give respect where its due. riding that mmlp so much is probably the reason it wasent included.

    Yeezy good job man, and no drake is not another kanye, material , production and style is different, drake being wooorse
