Kanye's Most Important Albums
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, released in 2010 to widespread critical acclaim and commercial success, snagged Kanye from falling off a cliff. This is West's definitive - and most important - record.
The aftermath of his mother's death and the VMA controversy severely affected West's mental state, and forced him to make his best work yet in hopes of being received positively by the public. Thus, Kanye set to work with all time great rappers and producers. RZA, Pusha T, Jay Z, Swizz Beats, Mike Dean, and a plethora of others contributed.
Kanye is on record saying that MBDTF would make or break his career. Had he not put all of his effort into making the album, Kanye West wouldn't be considered a great artist. Think about it. His body of work wouldn't be anything special, and if MBDTF didn't sell, Kanye probably would have resorted to making half-assed collabs and albums. Fortunately, it was critically acclaimed by almost all major publications and sold like hell.
