ABOUT THE BOOK Love him or hate him, Kanye West is one of the biggest rap artists in history. With numerous Grammy Awards and six platinum albums, West has diversified the face and sound of rap music. Before Kanye took rap by storm in 2004, the rap scene was almost completely dominated by gangster rap. Kanye's middle class background and preppy image breathed new life into what had become a one-dimensional music genre. Kanye's rise to fame did not come easy. His mother, Dr. Donda West, had always hoped Kanye would graduate college and pursue higher education. Professionally, Kanye struggled to be taken seriously as a solo rapper, even after he successfully collaborated with notable rappers like Jay Z. As soon as Roc-A-Fella music signed Kanye, though, he began churning out platinum albums. Once Kanye was firmly established in his music career, the only person getting in the way of Kanye West was Kanye West. His public temper tantrums, though interesting at first, have slowly whittled away at his professional image. His petulant behavior has garnered him enormous amounts of negative attention from the general public and people in public office. Two United States Presidents have criticized Kanye West's attitude and actions. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Kanye Omari West was born June 8th, 1977, in Atlanta, Georgia.
