Kanye West Keeps Getting Bigger
Kanye West is perhaps the biggest name in all of rap music right now, and for a good reason. His lyrics are cutting edge, intelligent, and relevant to societal trends. Right now, three of his albums rank on the top 500 albums of all-time list, and he is still actively writing and recording music. Thanks to this musical prowess, tickets to Kanye West concerts are very big money items.
Kanye grew up in Chicago, and before he become a rap icon, he briefly attended art school. However, it was as a producer that he excelled, and in the early 2000s, he produced tracks for Jay Z and Alicia Keys. However, what he really wanted was to be a solo artist in his own right. In 2004, he released his first album, and the rest is history. He has released several hit songs, like “Gold Digger,” “Stronger,” and “Heard ‘Em Say.” As far as inspiration goes, he has cited acts like Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Led Zepplin, and U2. This wide range of musical genres has given his own music a depth that you will not find anywhere else.
Kanye West is almost as well known for his strong and controversial opinions as he is for his music. In 2005 during a Hurricane Katrina benefit, he went off on a tirade against then President George W. Bush. In 2009, he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech of an award to tell the world why she was not the best person to win that award. He is an extremely outspoken individual, and this has only added to his infamous reputation.
Whether you love Kanye or you absolutely hate him, you have to admit that tickets to Kanye West concerts are a huge deal. His fans are rabidly loyal to him, and his shows are usually some of the most exciting out there. Oftentimes, they will sell out very quickly. If you’re a fan, getting a few seats for you and your friends will be a much appreciated gift. Grab yours now before they are gone and you miss a chance to see this legend.
