Kanye West has earned many accolades throughout his career, but his latest isnt something hell be shouting from the rooftops about. The controversial Chicago rapper was awarded the No. 1 spot on Rolling Stones 50 Genuinely Horrible Albums By Brilliant Artistslist for his 2018 album Ye, which writers at the publication said marked the beginning of the most disastrous artistic and personal collapse in the history of popular music. Clocking in at a mere 23 minutes, the chaotic, half-baked album was cut in Wyoming right around the time he told TMZ that slavery was a choice and started wearing a MAGA hat in public, Rolling Stone wrote. The uproar over his slavery remark caused him to rework many of the ye lyrics over a frantic two weeks shortly before the album dropped, which explains screeds like Just imagine if they caught me on a wild day/ Now Im on 50 blogs gettin 50 calls/ My wife callin, screamin, say, We bout to lose it all. They concluded: The Kanye scandals of 2018 seem almost quaint compared to his recent issues, but hes never made music less vital than this.

RUN DMCs 2001 effort Crown Royal also appeared at No. 27, with RS describing the tape as a colossal bomb. They also placed OutKasts Idelwild soundtrack at No. 46, calling the tape the product of a creatively exhausted duo that were desperate to go their separate ways.
