10 Memorable Kanye West Moments From The Last 10 Years

EST, February 13, 2014 THURSDAY EARLY AFTERNOON UPDATE: As of now, Friday night's Kanye West show at Baltimore Arena is still happening as scheduled, according to the arena's website . We will update this story with any new details. --------------- For the past decade, it seems no one can resist labeling Kanye West. The hip-hop forefather Russell Simmons, along with countless critics, have said he is a genius, while President Barack Obama has called him a jackass on more than one occasion, surely causing many detractors to nod in agreement. In the last year, The New York Times called him a visionary, and TV host Jimmy Kimmel reminded the rapper on national TV, a lot of people think you're a jerk , as if he was unaware the Internet existed. West would agree most with Simmons, but even then he would be unsatisfied. <br>Source: http://www.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/music/midnight-sun-blog/bal-kanye-west-remains-at-musics-forefront-20140211,0,1154169.story

According to a new Radar Online report published on Feb. 12, Kanye West is supposedly dropping in popularity as his concert venues are not selling out. In fact, there appears to be plenty of tickets available for one of his upcoming shows. He has a concert scheduled at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and it appears that the concert promoters have decided to drop the tickets fro $65 to $35 in hopes of getting more people to the concert. The tickets have been on sale for this concert for quite some time, but there are hundreds of tickets available. <br>Source: http://www.examiner.com/article/kanye-west-s-concert-tickets-are-not-as-popular-anymore
