Kanye West’s Pop Report Card: We Grade His Six Albums

53f85701a80fb6ffc252dec6086b19a0 Kanye West’s Pop Report Card: We Grade His Six Albums

With the June 18 release of Yeezus (or today, if we’re going by leaks), Kanye West has six solo albums and one joint album to his name in a nine-year span. And not a single one was a dud! It’s an incredible feat, but in all this Yeezus hype it’s easy to think the praise he has been receiving since 2004 has been overblown. So for our latest Pop Report Card, we decided to revisit West’s albums, to better understand how we got to the electro-freakout that is Yeezus, and grade them to see if all this praise over the past nine years was earned (spoiler alert: it was).

Digging back into his discography, it was exciting to relive the creative leaps taken between each album, and to chart his evolution from underdog backpack-rapping producer to The Nucleus. The biggest takeaway, though, is the staggering number of stone-cold classics in his oeuvre — they just keep piling up thanks to the great songs you forget about like “Gone” or “Hell Of A Life” or “Street Lights.”

So we invite you to take a trip down memory lane and get schooled in Kanye’s catalog up top — you’re just in time for registration.

Would you post this report card on your fridge, or do you take issue with some of the grades we handed out? Let us know below, or by hitting us up on Facebook and Twitter!
