During his recent interview with The New York Times, Kanye West discussed his discography in a way he really hadn't done before. He made some bold claims, but we couldn't act like most of them weren't true. He said that 808s & Heartbreak "redefined the sound of radio," while admitting that "the fact that I can't sing that well is what makes 808s so special." Meanwhile, he called My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy a "backhanded apology."
Ye's typical candor, along with the release of his new album Yeezus this week, got fans to restart the never ending debate: What is Kanye West's best album? Kanye has one of the most impressive rap catalogs ever, spanning six solo records and two collaborative efforts, all released in the last 10 years. We're sure you're tired of arguing. So as a personal favor to you (thank us in the comments!), we have settled it once and for all, ranking Kanye's albums from worst to best. And then, as a bonus, we threw a poll at the end to hear what Complex readers think.
