** In touching with his mother's passing, one can make the realization that ''this'' event is what caused Kanye to become who he is these days. If one thinks about everything (videos/performances) before Donda's death, Kanye was a lot more different before: He was a NiceGuy with a bit of the usual weirdness he had, even playful and goofier at that, granted the infamous "George Bush don't care about black people!" comment was there, but it was ''tamed'' these days compared to other controversies (Taylor Swift incident anybody?). Then when his mother died, Kanye amped up his behavior to an overblown JerkAss with a narcissistic complex, even with the implied theory that [[ItsAllMyFault he blames himself for her death]]. Makes the meme "I miss old Kanye", a lot more sadder.

** "Hey Mama" has become very retrospectively sad, considering Kanye's mother has passed away since the creation of the song, and live performances of the song are sparse. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCYAjGnvc7U His performance of the song at the 2008 Grammys]] only a few months after the passing is sad enough, but then there's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGVE5QMAFNM this more recent performance]] where Kanye starts the song but then gets overwhelmed with emotion and kneels down crying for the rest of it, even with the crowd trying to support him.

He then just motions for the [=DJs=] to skip the beat to another one.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: See [[AwesomeMusic/KanyeWest this page]].



* SoCoolItsAwesome: ''My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'' got rave reviews upon its release. And by 'rave', I mean ''almost every single freakin' media outlet gave it either a near perfect or perfect rating.''
** There are several examples on ''Yeezus,'' including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPyKAmKxOAw Justin Vernon and Kanye trading lines on the first chorus of "I'm In It"]] and the insanely groovy beat on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYUGI1mtt6c "Black Skinhead."]]

** One of the "Flashing Lights" videos. A WomanScorned {{Yandere}} abducts a legitimately terrified-looking Kanye, takes him somewhere in the middle of the desert, and murders him via multiple {{Shovel Strike}}s. Oh, and TheStinger? As soon as she's done, the music abruptly stops, and we're shown nothing but a solid-black screen with blood-red text: "FLASHING LIGHTS." Yikes.

* HeelRealization: Kanye posted a blog reflecting on how he's working on tampering down his ego back in 2008. What prompted it? The ''South Park'' episode "Fish Sticks."

** 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.
