DJ Samantha Ronson has heaped praise on outspoken rapper Kanye West – insisting the star’s music affords him the right to be arrogant.
Lindsay Lohan’s girlfriend first met the Stronger hitmaker before he released his debut LP College Dropout, and admits she was blown away by his musical abilities.
And the star insists West is the only hip-hop star who can move her with his tracks – likening him to folk rock legends Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake.
Ronson writes on her MySpace blog: “I have always been a fan of Mr. West. people may call him arrogant or whatever, but his antics never eclipse his talent. I met him when we were both artists signed to roc-a-fella records, he was already a respected/successful producer but hadn’t yet finished college dropout.”
She added: “He is unapologetic, takes risks and delivers albums that aren’t about a couple “radio” hits padded with filler. He makes full albums and this time has, in my opinion, put together a beautiful record that fulfills the promise made by the title. Yup, I don’t think I can recall any other song recorded by a hip hop artist that has broken my heart the way Joni Mitchell, Damien Rice or Nick Drake can. I know I am placing him in strange company, but that’s where this song falls in my ipod playlist.”
