** His infamous line off of "Famous": "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous." Although there are sources saying Kanye included the line with Taylor's permission, there was still inevitable backlash that was galvanized by Taylor indirectly addressing the controversy in her acceptance speech for Album of the Year at the 2016 Grammys when she mentioned people that would try and take credit for your success.

Kim later released a video which showed that Kanye had consulted with Taylor before the line, and she had signed off of it, which drove deeper wedges between the two's fandoms.

* EightPointEight: Despite getting 9's and 10's from just about every other major publication, [=AllMusic=] "only" gave ''My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'' four stars out of five. Of course, given [=AllMusic's=] penchant for changing their review scores every few years[[note]]They initially gave Music/KidA a 4 star rating[[/note]], it's very likely the album's score will be changed to "5 stars" by the end of the decade.

** Kanye heroically saved the world from the [[http://carlsagansdanceparty.wordpress.com/2009/09/18/heroic-kanye-saves-the-world-at-video-music-awards/ evil machinations]] of Taylor Swift and her clandestine backers.

* [[MemeticMutation Memetic Mut]]-[[InterruptingMeme Yo, TV Tropes, I'm really happy for you, and I'mma let you finish,]] but [[Memes/KanyeWest this page]] has one of the greatest meme lists of all time!''' His outspoken nature inspired quite a few.
** Kanye's characteristic grunt, "Huh?"
*** "HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN?"

** Just guess.
*** Apparently, [[EnforcedTrope it doesn't seem to bother him]] because he did it ''again'' when Beck won the 2015 Grammy for Best Album.

In 2009 Taylor Swift won an MTV Music Award for Best Female Video. During her acceptance speech Kanye barged onto the stage and declared that Music/{{Beyonce}} (who also had a video nomination) had one of the greatest videos of all time. That this incident caused him to become the target of extensive mockery doesn't seem to bother him]] him, because he did it ''again'' when Beck won the 2015 Grammy for Best Album.



* SweetDreamsFuel:
** "Heard Em Say" is one of, if not ''the'' most endearing and lullaby-like songs he's ever made, helped out immensely with [[Music/{{Maroon 5}} Adam Levine]]'s singing.
*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7Bu3tp4lLg Then there's the original music video]], which has Adam as a Macy's security guard letting Kanye and his three kids inside to basically live there and run around the store having fun. Even better is the fact that the store is ''alive''. Suits dancing, bed cars, it's just a child's dream.
** "Spaceship". The beat is absolutely blissful, as is Kanye's singing in the chorus.
*** ''The College Dropout'' is largely this, probably the fluffiest album Kanye will ever make. Along with "Spaceship," special mention goes to "Slow Jamz" and "Family Business."
** ''The College Dropout'' may be beaten by ''Graduation'' in terms of how fluffy the production is thanks to it's futuristic synth-driven sound, strings, and arena style with many of the songs including melodic singing. Examples of such are "Good Morning," "I Wonder," "Good Life," and "Flashing Lights."



* TrollingCreator: He outright says it on "I Am A God" ("As soon as they like you, make 'em unlike you"). He deliberately changes his style after each album, generally very successfully, [[LoveItOrHateIt but your mileage will almost certainly vary.]]



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Rick Rubin came in and stripped down a lot of ''Yeezus'' into what it is now, leaving many contributors' work on the cutting room floor (all of them still retained credits, however.) It can be fun to imagine what things originally sounded like before Rubin came in, especially because the 16-song demo version he was given by Kanye was ''three-and-a-half hours long.''
** ''The Life of Pablo'' has this in spades. After multiple title changes and alternate tracklists, it's easy to imagine how the album could've come out different.

* VindicatedByHistory: People have been a ''lot'' kinder to ''808s and Heartbreak'' after the success of ''My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'' proved that [[ObfuscatingStupidity Kanye knew damn well what he was doing the whole time.]] It also doesn't hurt that it's Kanye's most influential album by far, more or less single-handedly reinventing the modern R&B scene and influencing artists like Music/TheWeeknd, Music/{{Drake}} and Music/FrankOcean.

* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: ''Yes.'' While not necessarily a ''bad'' guy, Kanye sure loves his mom in spite of all his [[GeniusDitz dumb]] and [[JerkAss insensitive]] antics.
