It’s 2008, and off the back of the peerless trio of The College Dropout, Late Registration and Graduation, Kanye West is set to complete the quartet of albums with Good Ass Job. The stage is set for Kanye to confirm himself as both the best rapper and best beatmaker of the new millennium. We all know what happens next - a messy breakup, an existential crisis, and an LP that completely altered the landscape of 21st Century pop. While it may not contain his biggest hits, his hardest beats or his most eloquent rhymes, 808s & Heartbreak can make a decent claim to being Yeezy’s most influential record. Without the cold, autotune-heavy anti-rap of this Gary Numan-esque record we wouldn’t have Future, Thugger or Lil Uzi Vert, and Bon Iver and James Blake would have stayed in their lanes. The empty showboating of ‘Amazing’ and ‘Welcome To Heartbreak’ also paved the way for the feast of famine that was My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. As Kanye becomes ever-more difficult to love, let us remember the moment when our hearts went out to him most. Reissued on double-vinyl by Roc-A-Fella.
