The one thing I admire about Kanye West is the fact that he raps about real issues and important things that actually matter.
In my opinion, Hip-Hop/Rap - whatever you want to call it, has killed itself over the last few years because the artists are just repeatedly telling us about all the women, guns, drugs etc that they own.
Quite frankly, Im bored of it.
Kanye West has real talent, and this, along with The College Dropout, proves it.
"Gold Digger", "Roses", "Diamonds...", "Hey Mama" and "Gone" are among the highlights in this exceptional collection of bright, fresh and innovative songs.
In my humble opinion, this is what Hip-Hop should be about, not the glamorous bore it has rapidly become.
If you want real talent, real music and just damn good tunes, you'd be well advised to purchase Kanye's work.
This, along with the previous album is what Hip-Hop has needed all along.
Long Live Kanye
