Kanye West is in elite company with his 2010 album “MBDTF” being ranked on The 21 Albums From the 21st Century Every Man Should Hear.” OutKast’s Stankonia, Jay Z’s The Blueprint also appear in the list, but here’s why Ye’s fifth LP ranks at No. 1:
BECAUSE: It could’ve been any one of the seven albums West released this century, as fascinating a catalog of celebrity, triumph, love, loss, terrible puns, pretty decent puns, that was ever fucking put together by a single artist. MBDTF was just the record where he talked about all those things at once—a portrait of a man seizing the spotlight, drowning in it, and then somehow finding a way to turn that harrowing experience into art. Anybody who wants to be famous or make music for a living—or do both at the same time—should be forced to listen to MBDTF first. The rest of us are free to enjoy it for the bloody, hard-won, titanic achievement that it is.
