What Kanye Wore: Atlantic City edition

We're still trying to figure out what Kanye West is rocking on stage right now. During his show at Revel in Atlantic City, 'Ye is wearing what we will either call an albino Teen Wolf or Abominable Snowman outfit. It also started to snow inside of the arena. Could this have any relation to Cruel Winter?

He transitioned from "oh, he's just being Kanye" to being an outright jerk in this moment.
It should be noted that quality of music also went downhill after this.

Personally, I don't blame Kim. I do think Amber fed into his ego though. Further edit...not blaming any female for his behaviour, but I think his pre-Amber girlfriend kept his ass in line more and didn't encourage his douchiness as much. Everyone since seems to want to ride on his coattails/notoriety. At times, everyone's ego needs to be reigned in.

AMEN. I still listen to the masterpiece that is My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Power gets a listen through everyday from me. So powerful.

It did go down after MBDTF though.

Cruel Summer was a compilation album and while Kanye's production work can not be flawed, most of it's failures as an overall piece can be directly attributed to the unwanted and unnecessary presence of Big Sean and Teyana Taylor.

Watch The Throne was a successful both on a critical and commercial level, it helped to establish Kanye, "The Brand" and cement his iconic status in rap. Noted musical critic and lacefront theorist Blue Ivy even wrote a book on the album, granted that was mostly at her father's request but still...

So as you can see Kanye's musical output although admittedly polarising thematically, is still considered high quality. Typical complaints about his music are not that he has 'fallen off' exactly but more that he doesn't sound the way people want him to sound.

Might I put it to you, that the extraneous circumstances that Kanye Omari West currently finds himself in (his mistake relationship with That One Kim Kardashian) may have somewhat negatively coloured your opinion of him and thus I argue you are unable to form a fully objective opinion on the quality of his work?

LOL...I need to get some more sleep, clearly

While I was not the biggest fan of 808s, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Watch the Throne were amazing.

you're so wrong about his quality of music going downhill after this.
so wrong.

You're kidding right? This was well before MBDTF and that album is pure genius.
