It wasn't for profit, he is worth millions. The money probably doesn't mean shit to him anymore. It's his art, his expression and feelings towards what happened to him. I'm glad 808s was an album, because NO ONE would have had the balls to make such a risky artistic move at the peak of their career.

Agreed. It wasn't Dylan going electric or anything that drastic career-wise and it really opened up pop to auto-tune (more than what T-Pain was doing) and gave rise to emotion in rap instead of bling-talk. I appreciate B.O.B. and shit like that. If 808s was a mixtape rappers would've stayed shut-in. Somebody had to do it and Ye did it very well.

co-sign and every hip hop was marketing off of the 808s sound. The mainstream consumers didn't know what an 808 drum was until the album dropped.
ummm wrong. they definitely knew. the roland TR-808 came out in like '86. every sound in that machine had been used. Kanye just so happened to use that machine. but the gen public had def heard 808s many many many many times and def people that listen to hip hop
