Kanye West

Ye is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and fashion designer. Born in Atlanta and raised in Chicago, West gained recognition as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records in the early 2000s, producing singles for several artists and developing the "chipmunk soul" sampling style. Intent on pursuing a solo career as a rapper, he released his debut studio album, The College Dropout, to critical and commercial success. He founded the record label GOOD Music later that year. West explored diverse musical elements like orchestras, synthesizers, and autotune on the albums Late Registration, Graduation, and 808s & Heartbreak. His fifth and sixth albums My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Yeezus were also met with critical and commercial success. West further diversified his musical styles on The Life of Pablo and Ye and explored Christian and gospel music on Jesus Is King. His tenth album Donda was released to continued commercial success but mixed critical reception.
