Kanye West



Kanye Omari West is an American
rapper, singer, and record producer. West first rose to fame as a producer for
Roc-A-Fella Records, where he eventually achieved recognition for his work on
Jay-Z's album The Blueprint, as well as hit singles for musical artists
including Alicia Keys, Ludacris, and Janet Jackson. His style of production
originally used pitched-up vocal samples from soul songs incorporated with his
own drums and instruments. However, subsequent productions saw him broadening
his musical palette and expressing influences encompassing '70s R&B,
baroque pop, trip hop, arena rock, folk, alternative, electronica, synth-pop,
and classical music.
