You don’t have to like a person to respect their work. This is a realization many were forced to face when Kanye West became famous. But regardless of his ego, sense of entitlement and arrogance, West continues to dazzle audiences with his undeniable artistic talents—evidenced by his selling more than 30 million albums and 78 million digital tracks worldwide. His Highness of Self-Aggrandizement also possesses 21 Grammys; had six consecutive number one albums; and holds the record for the highest grossing tour in hip-hop history with Watch the Throne, co-headlined by Jay-Z back in 2011. West’s newest tour, Yeezus, with opening act Kendrick Lamar, coincides with his latest album of the same name—a critically-acclaimed digital masterpiece that is as captivating to listeners as West’s antics are to gossip columnists. Become as enthralled by Kanye in person as he is with the mirror when you watch the Yeezus tour at the Honda Center.
