Kanye West Is The Voice For Our Generation?


If Generation’s Have Voices, Who Are We Listening To . Levin

   The great philosopher and part-time rapper Kayne West announced earlier this week that he will be the voice of this generation.  In an interview on Wednesday, the king of white sunglasses said, "I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade, I will be the loudest voice.  It's me settling into that position of just really accepting that it's one thing to say you want to do it and it's another thing to really end up being like Michael Jordan."

We realize that this is Kayne being Kayne.  His new album, 808s and Heartbreak was released yesterday, and this is just the circus act that we can count on prior to any album delivery of his.   What Kayne did suggest is that there is no voice of this generation.  

After recent years of war and political head-butting which artist will be remembered as a voice of this generation?  We decide to make a short-list of who was the voice of their generation, who did we miss, who should be on it, who will be the true voice of this generation?

Recent to not so Recent:

Eddie Vedder
Bob Marley
John Lennon
Bob Dylan (voice of every generation, voice of mankind)
Elvis Presley
