Love him or hate him, Kanye West has been one of the current generation's most prominent members of pop culture. His influence branches out into fashion and design, but it all started with music. Kanye has a proven ear for the future, and his numerous styles have caused numerous waves in the sound of rap over the past fifteen years. 

More directly, Kanye has been able to put on a handful of rappers that have gone on to have flourishing careers of their own. He changed the life of Tyler the Creator with one tweet, prompting the "Goblin" line, "Since Kanye tweeted telling people he's bumping all of my shit these motherfuckers think I'm supposed to live up to something?" He's also helped to break Chief Keef, Travi$ Scott and producers like Hudson Mohawke and Geseffelstein into mainstream culture.
