Kanye West Slams Producer Bob Ezrin's Critique of His Music

Kanye West is firing back at music producer Bob Ezrin after he wrote a very negative critique of the rapper’s music.

“Unlike other creators in his genre like Jay-Z, Tupac, Biggie or even M.C. Hammer for that matter, it’s unlikely that we’ll be quoting too many of Kanye‘s songs 20 years from now,” Bob wrote in the Lefsetz newsletter. “He didn’t open up new avenues of public discourse like NWA, or introduce the world to a new art form like Grandmaster Flash, or even meaningfully and memorably address social issues through his music like Marshall, Macklemore and Kendrick.”

Bob noted that Kanye‘s songwriting is “sophomoric at best” and that his biggest achievements haven’t technically been in music.

“Instead Kanye‘s greatest achievements have been in the form of excessive behavior, egomaniacal tantrums and tasteless grandstanding,” Ezrin said. “What he is a true artist at is living his life out loud – and shoving it down the throats of the rest of us whether we give a shit or not. He’s like that flasher who interrupts a critical game by running naked across the field. Is that art???”

  • Kee FRIEND Leichtle

    Someone please send Kanye to a top notch psychiatrist or an asylum! He’s nothing but a bitter little fucker who can’t shut up about his opinions and learn to ignore any hate that’s thrown at him! He is not the person to look up to. Seriously, there’s nothing about this loser that’s appealing so I don’t even know why he’s even famous! He’s rude, annoying, has temper problems and just worthless!

    Jesus Christ what a crybaby loser. Grow up, Kanye. Try to stop humiliating your children with every breath.

  • Jesse Bernal

    I stopped listening to this fool’s music about 8 years ago lol. Now he just famous for public outbursts and temper tantrums. Kim and him will be divorced in less than a year.

    Maybe Kanye’s upset because most of what that guy said was true. Kanye is more famous for his public drama and for Kim then for his music these days. He doesn’t have to be so rude and full of himself. Many other artists have gotten a negative review and don’t keep carrying on about it.

    This is exactly what Bob Ezrin was talking about,Kanye thinks that he is god gift to music when he has no talent and thinks he is god which he is not and feeling sorry for Bob children everyone feels sorry for Kanye children having him as a Dad. Kanye needs to go into a secure unit and be taking care of for a few years. Wow two albums crap albums a year well done Kanye hope your children are so proud of you. Maybe you should stick to be Mr Kim Kardashian for a while that would be your gift to the world

  • Marie

    This “guy” (whoever he is) has my respect for having the balls to speak the true about this egomaniac!

  • Papaya Queen

    First of all, Kanye said he wouldn’t ever involve Kids in his Tweets again- that lasted reeaal Long….
    And second, it really doesn’t matter how known Mr. Ezrin is, he was spot-on with his Review.
    I really can’t imagine how he can look into HIS children’s eyes without Feeling ashamed about what he is saying lately…

  • Bologna35

    He is just doing these stupid arrogant pointless rants because that’s the only way people will talk about him and is duub ugly wife and her family, he rants everyone talks about him, Kanye on another rant okay lets talk what about how he has no talent and how ugly his wife his, that’s what he wants people to do no matter how bad we still comment and talk about him

    This producer nailed it!
