Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
Love him or hate him, Kanye West has made a major impact on hip-hop culture and continues to be an influence in the genre. West has always enjoyed entertaining people and he found his niche in hip-hop early in his life. With the help and support of his family, especially his mother, West was able to pursue his interests in music and his natural talent easily took him to the height of hip-hop culture. Since West’s career as a hip-hop artist began, he has been a rapper, a song-writer, a producer, and has discovered and sponsored numerous artists. West has strong opinions and has never shied away from making his opinions known, no matter what consequences may result. The strength of his convictions are admirable, but his lack of impulse control combined with his lack of sympathy for other points of view hurts his popularity. No matter what opinion his critics have about West, they cannot doubt his talent or his devotion to hip-hop. The text is filled with color images of West and the talent he has discovered and promoted and is part of the “Superstars of Hip-Hop” series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams; Ages 10 to 15.
