I must admit the word genius is thrown around too freely these days. Kanye West is an interessting personality and an important figure for hip hop. But to be censidered a genius, you must at least come up with your own melodies instead of just sampling. RZAs beats contains samples as well but he makes the samples into melodies of his own.

I havn't really liked a lot of his music since his last solo album but you have to be a fool not to regocnize he pushes the boundaries of what you expect of a hip hop album. Musically MDTBF is one of the best projects the last 10 years. I just wish it beat for beat was more coherent.
