So the other day, I was listening to Kanye’s Bittersweet (Poetry) featuring John Mayer and Keyshia Cole (who else would think to bring these two artist together on one song) and it got me to thinking about how truly talented Mr. West is and how much the music game needs him.

Yes, I said need! Sure he has the tendency to kirk out on live television regarding a number of topics ranging from the lack of love former President Bush has for black people to objecting irately when he or a fellow artist is snubbed for an award, but he’s “an artist and he’s sensitive about his shit (© E. Badu)!”

Not only does Kanye add some excitement to the game, but he is arguably the most talented producer/artist combination we’ve experienced in a long time.

If nothing else, you have to respect the fact that Kanye is so passionate about music, that he’s willing to make a complete ass of himself, even if it may be at the expense of his career.

Listen to Bittersweet off of Kanye’s Graduation album below.

"And she claim she only with me for the currency
You cut me deep bitch, cut me like surgery
And I was too proud to admit that it was hurting me
I'd never do that to you, at least purposely
We breaking up again, we making up again
But we don't love no more, I guess we fucking then
Have you ever felt you ever want to kill her?
And you mix them emotions with tequila
And you mix that with a little bad advice
On one of those bad nights, ya'll have a bad fight
And you talking 'bout her family, her aunts and shit
And she say "Motherfucker, yo momma's a bitch!"
You know, domestic drama and shit, all that attitude
I'll never hit a girl, but I'll shake the shit outta you!
But I'mma be the bigger man, Big Pimpin' like Jiggaman
Oh I guess I figure it's..."
