Opinions are still very much divided about Kanye West. Fans and fellow celebrities alike have had trouble interpreting his immense musical legacy in the face of his controversial antisemitic comments. In fact, that exact subject was at the core of a recent TMZ documentary called Unhinged But Unstoppable. The trailer for the doc asks fellow celebrities and rappers why West is seemingly incapable of being canceled.
His complicated legacy hasn't stopped those advocating for the quality of his music though. That included Childish Gambino, who brought West up during a recent Complex interview. When asked about who his GOAT rapper is he didn't hesitate to say West. Despite acknowledging the controversy he claims that almost none of the rappers who are around today would be where they are without West. It was a surprisingly uncontroversial statement with fans in the comments agreeing that at the very least, you have to give West credit for how influential he's been.
