I can't even begin to understand why Kanye West has a right to say Beck is killing music...
I know it's pretty obvious, but wth, does /mu/ prefer Kanye or Beck and why/
Beck is a good guy, has some great fucking lyrics. Kanye bitches about how rich he is and how many bitches he gets. I'd love to hear a Kanye song where he's the sole writer, but he's actually not very talented at that and uses a whole team of people to create his music for him, then he slaps his name on the final product. His music is directed toward sensation and goes for a cheap laugh via one-liners, while Beck's music, at least for me, is pretty cerebral and covers more than a one-dimensional culture.
reminder that beck literally made a song based around one line on a throwaway kanye song
>My freshman year I was going through hella problems
>'Til I, built up the nerve to drop my ass up out of college
>My teacher said I'se a loser, I told her why don't you kill me
>I give a fuck if you fail me, I'm gonna follow my heart
The way I see it, the problem is that he actually cares too much about the music industry. He sees everything as an industry. He's a genius at publicity. He looks at shoes and sees an industry, he looks at a coat and sees an industry, he hears a cool drum beat and thinks about the industry. He like, represents the music industry.
OP here, to make myself clearer, I said Kanye has no right to say that Beck is killing music.
I hate kanye to death. I hope he rots in hell.
Reread what I said: "I can't even begin to understand why Kanye West has a right to say Beck is killing music..."
you retards are hilarious sometimes. delusional the lot of you
>kanye makes a shit song
it's supposed to be shit he did it on purpose!
>kanye's shit lyrics get torn apart
lol 2deep4u he's being ironic
you people will justify anything this guy does
friendly reminder that he likes making clothes more than music
Beck has inventive stylizations, god tier lyricism, and is a pretty alright dude except for his retarded cult religion. Kanye is always putting out the same shit, can't stop talking about himself and his dick, and is a total cunt to everyone, all the time, constantly. So Kanye is a shit musician that is toxic to the industry, and Beck is a pretty alright musician that is friendly to the industry.
Where's the contest?
Thats what every single 16 year old says about "(insert pop artist they don't like here)" with no basis for having this opinion. Absolutely doesn't apply to Kanye in the least bit, if you like his music or not.
i find your dismissal of an entire culture as one-dimensional at best ill-informed and at worst completely disingenuous
but then it's not your culture so you probably don't have much choice about how much cherrypicking you do
beck isn't in any way intrinsically deeper than kanye, just wearing some sandals and being a bit fey doesn't make you a poet
beck is not a studio engineer, he's not working out how to get a good snare drum
and before you say neither does kanye, you're wrong, even when he has someone else mixing for him he's an insufferable interfering control freak
i dont even like kanyes stuff that much but if you try making this about skill youre going to lose
