Roommate, 10 years ago today, Kanye West released what many consider to be the best album of his legendary career. “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” was Kanye’s first project after the infamous Taylor Swift incident – and it saw Ye at the forefront of his game and once again changed the sound and scope of hip hop.
“My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” received multiple Grammy awards, won more than a few – and also included a full-length film to tell the story of the album. The album was named the greatest album of the last decade by virtually every music publication and media company. With singles like “Power”, “Runaway”, “Devil In A New Dress” and “Blame Game”, the album Kanye was the most vulnerable.
In 2010, the music world waited pins and needles to see what Kanye West’s next move would be after his infamous incident at the MTV Video Music Awards where he jumped on stage to interrupt Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech on Beyonce’s behalf .
While many of his critics thought his career was over, even Kanye himself acknowledged how much of his follow-up project became an enemy in the music industry after the MTV incident.
Fortunately, as with most things concerning him, Kanye had something up his sleeve that would not only change the industry, but make his fans incredibly happy and turn his naysayers into fans.
“My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” was famously recorded in a confiscated home in Hawaii where some of the greatest names in music came to bring their talents to the top-secret project.
The album also did its greatest job, putting Kanye’s antics at the center and putting his music back on the scene.
