Kanye West (voluit Kanye Omari West) is een Amerikaanse rapper/zanger/producer. Hij heeft ook een eigen platenlabel (GOOD Music).

Hij is bekend geworden door het produceren, onder andere van het album 'The Blueprint' van Jay-Z, en diverse hitsingles van o.a. Alicia keys, Janet jackson en Ludacris.

In 2003 maakte hij zijn eerste singles, in 2004 verscheen zijn eerste album 'The College Dropout'. Sindsdien heeft hij nog 3 albums uitgebracht: 'Late registration' (2005), 'Graduation' (2007) en '808s & Heartbreak' (2008).

In april 2008 verschijnt American Boy in de Top 40, wat zijn grootste hit in ons land wordt. Op zijn lijst van Top 40-hits prijken, naast deze samenwerking met Estelle ook producties samen met Chris Martin, Jamie Foxx, Ne-Yo, Katy Perry en Jay-Z.

In 2015 verschijnen twee samenwerkingen tussen West en Paul McCartney. Eerst Only One en vrij snel daarna ook FourFiveSeconds, een akoestische track waarop ook Rihanna te horen is. Die laatste wordt, na een afwezigheid van ruim twee-en-een-half jaar in de Top 40, zijn 11e hit. Het nummer komt op de tweede plaats en is daarmee de hoogst bereikte positie van West. In 2016 brengt Kanye West het album The Life Of Pablo uit, waarvan Famous de eerste single wordt.

Kanye krijgt te kampen met geestelijke gezondheidsproblemen. Zo breekt hij zijn tournee abrupt af. In 2018 dropt hij twee albums (Ye en Kids See Ghosts). In september schieten de aantallen op YouTube omhoog als hij de track I Love It uitbrengt, een samenwerking met Lil Pump.







Songtekst

[Kanye West:]
(Look at you [x14])
(Look at you [x8])
(Ladies and gentlemen, la-ladies and gentlemen)
(And I want to show you how you all look like beautiful stars tonight)
(And I want to show you how you all look like beautiful stars tonight)
(And I want to show you how you all look like beautiful stars tonight)

And I always find, yeah, I always find somethin' wrong
You been puttin' up with' my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at findin' what I don't like the most
So I think it's time for us to have a toast

Let's have a toast for the douchebags,
Let's have a toast for the assholes,
Let's have a toast for the scumbags,
Every one of them that I know
Let's have a toast to the jerkoffs
That'll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can

She find pictures in my email
I sent this girl a picture of my dick.
I don't know what it is with females
But I'm not too good with that shit.
See, I could have me a good girl
And still be addicted to them hoodrats
And I just blame everything on you
At least you know that's what I'm good at

See, I always find
And I always find
Yeah, I always find somethin' wrong
You been puttin' up with my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at findin' what I don't like the most
So I think it's time for us to have a toast

Let's have a toast for the douchebags,
Let's have a toast for the assholes,
Let's have a toast for the scumbags,
Every one of them that I know
Let's have a toast to the jerkoffs
That'll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can

R-r-ru-ru-ru-run away
Run away from me, baby

(Look at, look at, look at, look at you)
Run away from me, baby
(Look at you, look at you, look at you)
Run away
Run away from me, baby

[Pusha T:]
24/7, 365, pussy stays on my mind
I-I-I-I did it, all right, all right, I admit it
Now pick your next move, you could leave or live with' it
Ichabod Crane with that motherfuckin' top off
Split and go where? Back to wearin' knockoffs, huh?
Knock it off, Neiman's, shop it off
Let's talk over mai tais, waitress, top it off
Fools like vultures wanna fly in your Freddy loafers
You can't blame 'em, they ain't never seen Versace sofas
Every bag, every blouse, every bracelet
Comes with a price tag, baby, face it
You should leave if you can't accept the basics
Plenty hoes in a baller-nigga matrix
Invisibly set, the Rolex is faceless
I'm just young, rich, and tasteless
P!

[Kanye:]
Never was much of a romantic,
I could never take the intimacy.
And I know I did damage,
'Cause the look in your eyes is killing me,
I guess you've got another advantage
'Cause you could blame me for everything.
And I don't know how I'm a manage,
If one day you just up and leave
Yeah, I always find somethin' wrong
You been puttin' up with my shit just way too long
I'm so gifted at findin' what I don't like the most
So I think it's time for us to have a toast

Let's have a toast for the douchebags,
Let's have a toast for the assholes,
Let's have a toast for the scumbags,
Every one of them that I know
Let's have a toast to the jerkoffs
That'll never take work off
Baby, I got a plan
Run away fast as you can
