After hearing he's gonna perform all of 808s at the Hollywood Bowl, my first thought was that I'm now worried he's falling into a "greatest hits" mindset. Instead of pushing boundaries, it looks like he's taking stock of his influence so far and commenting on it. I'm not quite sure it will lead to better music, unfortunatley.

Then again, I was also worried about his output quality when Cruel Summer came out, and look what happened next.

I know I'm not alone when I say that's the Kanye album I'd least like to see performed in its entirety.

If it was MBDTF I'd get the scratch together to go. Money is no object in that case.

Obvs.

But honestly I'd fork out for College Dropout, Late Registration, or Yeezus as well.

I watched clips of Taylor Swift presenting the "Video Vanguard" award to Kanye, and his subsequent acceptance speech. For a guy who supposedly never smiles, he seemed to be having a good time, and a sense of humor about himself.

The speech was heartfelt and reflective and he even seemed to be getting choked up a bit. Plus he calls out MTV for being self-serving and exploitative.

Phenomenal stuff.

Another example in a long, long, long line of why people are wrong about him.

Was on the train home with two girls who attended the VMAs, they spent a good portion of the trip complaining about his speech.

"You know where I'm going with this...I'm dropping my new album in 2020!"

Kanye's problem is more that he can't accept it when he doesn't win a award.
He probably reckons he should also get awards for the best bluegrass album of the decade, the best mathcore album of the century and the best female vocal jazz performance ever.
