Let’s face it, Kanye West has lived long enough to watch himself become the villain. When he first arrived on the music scene, he was a breath of fresh air in the Hip-Hop community. One can argue Kanye West helped change the Hip-Hop game. No longer did you have to be from the hood and rap about cars, women, guns, money, and diamonds to be cool. You could express yourself lyrically and move to the beat of your own drum, but some where between there and now. Most people just can not stand Kanye West. People really do hate Kanye West!
So let’s start at the first point when people started to hate Mr. West.
5. The Kanye West Taylor Swift Incident
In 2009, Taylor Swift had just won “Best Female Video” over Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” video. When Taylor Swift got up on the stage and received her award, Kanye West rushed the stage and took the mic from her hand, and told the world, that he was going to let Taylor finish, but Beyone had the best video of all time! This was the catalyst of the start of people hating Kanye West. If you want to relive the moment, watch the video above.
