Wait what? The Kanye West Audition - AMERICAN IDOL
Kanye Omari West is an American recording artist, songwriter, record producer, fashion designer, and founder of the record label GOOD Music and creative content company DONDA. He is among the most successful and acclaimed musicians of the 21st century, and has attracted both praise and controversy for his outspoken public persona.
West first became known as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records in the early 2000s, producing hit singles for musical artists such as Jay-Z and Alicia Keys before pursing a solo career as a rapper. He released his debut album The College Dropout in 2004 to widespread commercial and critical success, and would go on to explore a variety of different styles and musical genres on subsequent albums that include the baroque-inspired Late Registration , the electronic-tinged Graduation , and the starkly emotive 808s & Heartbreak . Along with critical and commercial success, West became a frequent source of controversy as a result of his outspoken public appearances, including his assertion that President George W. Bush doesnt care about black people during a live television broadcast for Hurricane Katrina relief, and his interruption of singer Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. In 2010, he released his critically acclaimed fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. (source : wikipedia
