** ''"Lift Yourself"'' is forever tainted for some people by it's absolutely ridiculous MemeticMutation making it impossible to take seriously. After all, how can one take a song where Kanye hypes up the last verse, ''his only lyrical contribution to the song'', only to drop '''''"POOPITY SCOOP"''''' on them?

** ''Ye'' is pretty divisive too. Depending on the listener, it's either a focused improvement on ''Pablo'' or even worse than its predecessor.

** "I Thought About Killing You" from ''Ye'' is arguably the most ''creepiest'' song Kanye's ever written. It's mostly a strange vocal mumble in the background with Kanye just...rambling about how he wishes to ''kill the listener'' because he "loves himself too much", while repeating the phrase "pre-meditative murder".
--> ''[[ParanoiaFuel But I sometimes I think bad things, Really, Really.....REALLY bad things...]]''



%%* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: And after ''My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy''... ladies and gentlemen, nuff said. He tends to be in a perpetual cycle of leaping onto the Scrappy Heap with his bizarre and narcissistic comments, then being rescued from it by his next album.

%%* * RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: To stress this trope is an understatement. Kanye tended to cause controversy and controversy, and he became the subject of SnarkBait following the VMA incident. And after ''My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy''... ladies and gentlemen, nuff said. He tends to be in a perpetual cycle of leaping onto the Scrappy Heap with his bizarre and narcissistic comments, then being rescued from it by his next album. It's even become a trend at that too.

** Initially caused by ''808s and Heartbreak'', but the rift has healed since then. This hasn't really happened among the fandom with ''Yeezus,'' oddly enough- it's largely casual fans and the mainstream audience that were turned off by the album.

** For people Ye has given a ColbertBump to who have later become well-known in their own right - LupeFiasco guested on Kanye's "Touch the Sky" from ''Late Registration''.

** ''Late Registration'' had [=DeRay=] Davis (again), LupeFiasco ("Touch The Sky" was his breakthrough), Adam Levine of Music/Maroon5, and - a major surprise considering Music/JayZ was in a major feud with him at the time - Music/{{Nas}}.

** ''Yeezus'' seems to be going down the same road. It's received more acclaim than ''808s & Heartbreak'' but the general public has been divided on its industrial influences, with some unfavorably comparing it to Music/DeathGrips. At any rate, both albums received a LoveItOrHateIt reception, and it's too soon to tell whether ''Yeezus'' will be as well-regarded in the long term like ''808s.''

At any rate, both albums received a LoveItOrHateIt polarizing reception, and it's too soon to tell whether ''Yeezus'' will be as well-regarded in the long term like ''808s.''



* LoveItOrHateIt: ''Yeezus'' inspires as much passionate anger as it does intense love.
