Picasso is dead. Long live Kanye. The American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, and fashion designer Kanye Omari West 'Yeezy' hails from Chicago, Illinois and plays many musical styles ranging from hip-hop to baroque pop and gospel.
West's outspoken views and marriage to television personality Kim Kardashian have always gained him significant media attention. Kanye first entered the public spotlight for producing Jay-Z's Blueprint. West's third studio album Graduation sold 1 million copies in its first week.
He was won 21 Grammy's and Late Registration (2005), The College Dropout (2005) and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010) listed on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
