There is no celebrity that can shock, amaze, entertain, bewilder, and infuriate quite like Kanye West. No matter what your stance on the rapper is, there is no denying that he is one of the biggest personalities on the planet. He’s definitely not one to shy away from the spotlight. He is more famous for his astonishing ego and unbelievable quotes than he is for his music, and he is never far away from the headlines for very long. Of course, this is exactly what he wants. They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, and here are 10 times Kanye put that saying to the test.

Kanye West will claim that he is the best rapper on the planet, but would still separate himself from the entire genre and put it down by stating that he does not listen to any other artists. This is furthered by claiming that his apartment is too nice for him to listen to rap in, suggesting that he feels that rap music is dirty and not appropriate for those that have wealth. Not only does he disrespect and separate himself from a genre that he is a part of, he then claims that there are certain conditions where the music can and can’t be listened to. This disconnects millions of listeners and creates further divides within the music industry.
