Ah, Kanye West. Controversial as ever, he’s really been stepping up the PR shambles – remember when the worst thing he ever did was have beef with Taylor Swift?
Kanye’s changed a lot since My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy came out – there’s the MAGA hat, his relationship with Trump, his family with Kim Kardashian, his rebirth into Christianity… the list goes on.
Kanye West started the decade with MBDTF and ended it with Jesus Is King and I will never get over this

But despite all the BS, there’s a reason Kanye still has such a huge and loyal fanbase – because you cannot deny his creative genius.
The Rolling Stones and Billboard just placed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy as the #1 Album of the 2010s, on top of Lemonade.
Kanye West DID NOT disappear for a year for MBDTF to NOT get Album Of The Decade
That fuckin intro, the chords on blame game, the hype of power, the fantastical sounds in so appalled, THE ARTWORK
All of the lights, Runaway
Thank you @kanyewest for AOTD

Forget the meltdowns and the Trump support and all the rest of the drama for a second – this album was about police brutality, societal breakdown and most importantly, about Kanye’s own inability to stay away from controversy, and despite being at the end of the decade, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is still as relevant as ever.
