iTunes Editors’ Notes

If College Dropoutwas our introduction to an underdog and Late Registration a victory lap for a newly anointed champion, then Graduation crystallizes Kanye West's stratospheric success in 24-carat surround sound. Like the teddy bear mascot being hurtled into outer space on the album's cover, Kanye's third album pushes his reflexive rhymes and musical imagination to places only hinted at on his previous two albums.Anyone can rap about cash, but Graduation sounds likes a million bucks: "Good Life" is a layer cake of silver-gilded synths that lets the listener bask in Kanye's luxurious dream life for three vivid minutes, while the Daft Punk-sampling "Stronger" beams us into a futuristic dance party, awash in neon color and surround sound audio. Though Kanye's increasing wealth hasn't helped to curb his obsession with fashion brands and jewelry, he never stops investigating himself and his motives. "To what much is given, much is tested," he raps on the hit "Can't TellMe Nothing," which resembles nothing else on contemporary radio. "I feel the pressure, under more scrutiny / And what I do? Act more stupidly." Kanye's egomania will always be a fully-fledged part of his persona, but even as the superstar in him looms large, the self-critical upstart of College Dropout is there checking his every move.

Customer Reviews

what happened to the album?

last time i checked stronger was kanye west's # 2 song and the album had a different review. Now stronger has simply disappeared from the list, and all of the reviews and ratings for the album have been depleted. simply searching for stronger in the iTunes search panel doesn't bring the song up. Also the iTunes review of the album called it the "crysallization" of his status as a star but now criticizes it calling him a "fool" for what he did on this album. I remember this album was very popular when it came out and i still enjoy listening to it. Im curious as to what iTunes did to all the sales records and reviews and ratings that were previously shown here.

Missing Track

Love this album but why is it missing track #8 "Drunk and Hot Girls" feat. Mos Def?

Great CD But...

I bought this CD as a whole a year ago on itunes and I'm disappointed in Itunes once again. First, of all "Homecoming" with Chris Martin wasn't Album Only then and now it is. And also when I bought it it had a song called "Drunk and Hot Girls" with Mos Def as track #8. Itunes is selling you less than the full product and making you buy the whole CD if you want Homecoming.

Biography

Born: June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, GA

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

In the span of three short years, Kanye West went from hip-hop beatmaker to worldwide hitmaker, as his stellar production work for Jay-Z led to a major-label recording contract and, ultimately, a wildly successful solo career. West paired his beats with tongue-twisting raps and a self-assured, flamboyant personality. His dapper fashion sense set him apart from many of his rap peers, and his confidence often came across as boastful or even egotistical, albeit amusingly so. This flamboyance, of course,...
