Kanye is the only artist to have all his albums universally acclaimed and not even one clunker. His career itself has only been present for 6 years (Solo-wise) and all his albums have been acclaimed, even 808s has a great metacritic rating no matter how you look at it.

The beatles had yellow submarine. Lil Wayne had Rebirth. Eminem- Relapse, but Kanye has not had one clunker so far.

The man's just immensely talented, that's all I can say. 5 studio albums in 6 years and each one vastly different from the other, while also inventing and defining the genre they touched on?

A lot of people have "not had one clunker so far."  You guys should get off kanye's music from time to time.

Please elaborate. All my favorite artists have had atleast one album where they lost it a bit. Not TERRIBLE albums or anything, just..not as good.

Examples? 
A tribe called quest, 5 albums. Gangstarr, 6 albums. Outkast, 7 albums. The Roots, 12 albums. You've heard of these people right? I can go on and on and on.

So does ye.

You should really get off his music one day. Cause saying you love his music is a fact, it's cool and all that. But saying he's done things that have never been done before is dumb, disrespectful and ignorant.

Nas; he's praised with Illmatic, and at the same time he's cursed with it.

Scarves speaks da truf.  Broaden your horizons.  There are a lot of groups/artists out there with pretty impressive catalogues.

Examples off the top of my head:

LCD Soundsystem
The Smiths
M.I.A.
Nirvana
The Velvet Underground (Squeeze doesn't count)
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Joanna Newsom
Tbh M.I.A's new album got bashed critically and commercially.

But I get what you're saying. It's been done before. Still, it's not an easy accomplishment in such a short amount of time.

At the end of the day it all comes down to opinions/taste

To say Ye is the only artist to have done this is foolish...but he is one of the most recent

You're absolutely right. Don't hate on me bro. It's just that, the consistency is pretty stunning for a person who's both wildly commercially and critically successful. And I was mainly talking about recent times, like this decade.

Oh don't get me wrong. I'm not as mad as I may sound through these words.

Fuck you doing comparing Kanye West to The Beatles?
It's all a matter of opinion isn't it?

They both are incredibly critically and commercially successful. Both of them are considered to be one of the best in their genres, (Although the beatles are ALL TIME)

Only time will tell, but musicians shouldn't be treated like demigods. The Beatles are my favorite band and they are the most important thing that happened to music in the past century but hot damn they didn't invent music.

I'm sorry but as much as I love Kanye there is no way he will ever do what The Beatles did too music.
The only person you can put aside of the beatles is michael jackson.
He beat them. Kanye>>>>>The Beatles.
