Kanye West’s career can broke down into three parts. The first was his rise from suburban kid to producer at Roc-A-Fella, the second was his first trilogy of college themed-entitled albums, and the last is his current state, that of the constant collaborator. Through all these, Kanye West tickets for live performances have been difficult to find.
As a young man trying to establish in an industry dominated by the street persona at the time, Kanye did his time as a producer. It was obvious he had a gift for putting together hits. Otherwise, he would not have worked with Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, and John Legend. His rise as a performer only came after almost dying in a car accident in Los Angeles. This somehow enabled to write the hit song “Jesus Walks”, the track that would kick off the next stage of his career.
Finally given the support to release an album, Kanye West took his time. While working as a producer, he recorded the hit album the College Dropout. This album would strike the mainstream in a way that made it clear rap would bleed into hip hop and hip hop had become a chart topper with everyone under the age of 40. The debut is counted as the best debut album of all time and is regarded as one of the best albums of all time by Rolling Stone. Kanye followed this album with Late Registration and Graduation. The songs “Gold Digger” and “Stronger” will forever live on as a part of the transcendence of hip hop in the 21st century.
Though 808 & the Heartbreaker yielded two of Kanye’s biggest hits, “Love Lockdown” and “Heartless”, it would be his collaboration with Jay-Z as Watch the Throne that would signal his next phase of his career. He is currently working with the impressive cast of rappers on GOOD Music, West’s record label. The first of these collaborations is Cruel Summer. More of these albums are expected, as are more Kanye concert tickets. Currently, his shows are few and far between, but he manages to put on an incredible success unknown to much of hip hop when he does.
