Nor me. So I have no real evidence of how shit he is (or isn't).
Is the casual uber-baiting of west completely justified, or just bandwagon hopping by people who've also never heard hardly nuthin' he's done? I've probably slagged him too BTW...

On the one hand, if you played me a song by any of those 5 people, I would not be able to tell you who it is.
On the other hand......Adam West is on "Big Bang Theory" tonight!

I think I've heard a few Kati Perry songs all the way through, driving with my kid all those years ago when he had control of the music. I actually like her voice, but not her music or singing.

Update: Thanks to my kiddies, I have now heard complete songs by Katy Perry and Beyonce. Some of the stuff wasn't bad, most of it was awful.

I guess if you include that song with Macca, I have also heard a Kanye West song. Based on that song, I haven't been interested in pursuing it further.

I have, believe it or not, tried to listen to Run the Jewels and Kendrick Lamar. Constantly reading about how they're "geniuses" piqued my interest enough to stream some of their stuff via Amazon Prime. So far I can simply say it's not for me, although I think I might like an instrumental mix of Run the Jewels. But I guess that defeats the purpose.

I was VERY disappointed! Yelling "Get off your lazy ass" over and over just doesn't seem motivational.

I used to have Late Registration by Kanye. The first 4 songs were good but the rest were blah.

My technique only works 99% of the time. I'm sorry if you're a one percenter. Don't worry though, I send my flunkees over to Anthony Robbins. Maybe he can help you out.

I'm hacked off of these (circa) 10 year olds being paraded out as the 'new (insert genre) star'.

thank you very much, mr zappa

ah, i, brother k west, am very pleased to be here on behalf of the administration - the most powerful gubmint in the world, and, uh, mr duece invited me to come here tonight to create some balance, because there has been some things done by mr zappa that i think are unfair to our country

i think, from the beginning, to say that this is going to be balanced, when he has this lingerie up here, and makin' fun of children's toys, as a beginning, if this is what he has in mind ... i think he's wrong; it's people like mr frank zappa that kept the senate from being able to send arms to the democratic freedom fighters in afghanistan, and i, for one, am headin' out there myself, as soon as i finish up here tonight

and i want the elected official, mr bernie sanders the democrat, to remember that 'democrat' begins with a 'd' just like demon! and we'll remember you, friend, when it comes votin' time and hillary clinton and ted cruz despite his foreign name, did some help to back some things up

friends, these forms cost money and this money could be going towards a more powerful military; this money could be going towards driving out the illegal aliens; and instead, mr zappa wants to have a bunch of young, uninformed 18 to 21-year-olds votin' here, and spendin' your money

sunday - that's not fair, mr zappa - sunday night used to be a night in which americans would get together, they'd go to their place of worship, and they would share and i don't know why, on this night which is supposed to be valentine's night, there aren't more people that have a heart that have a love affair with america ... but instead, they're here on sunday night, worshipping this man who's demon-possessed!

and i'm comin' here tonight because i want to share with him, just the same way we're going to give spirit power to the democratic freedom fighters down there, our brothers that wanna have the freedom to be able to have a man like donald trump, to have a man like mr trump, restore america!

and i'm gonna ask the power and the joy of the power of the living king of kings and a lot of you here, you smut-minded, musical people say, 'king of kings, that must be kayne'

now, i'm gonna ask for the power,
i'm gonna ask for the glory
i'm gonna now, i'm gonna tell you a story
i'm gonna drive out the demons, friends
i'm gonna ask you help this badness end
come on frank, let's have a story
come on there 'n share the glory
do you feel the power¿ come on, put out the negativity ...

His song Genius is dripping with irony. Like many of his songs. Actually, the string arrangement in that song IS genius. Great lyrics, too...

You broke my heart into smithereens
and that took genius
