FSD Feature: Kanye West’s 25 Best Beats [2006-2012]

FSD Staff


Words by Alex Russell (@andfeedingyou)

Kanye West. Have you heard of him? He’s a rapper, like one of those guys that makes rhyming lyrics over a beat. He also makes beats sometimes. Apparently he has had some success in that field. This is the second half of our bipartite coverage of what we consider to be Kanye’s greatest successes in production for himself and others, this time within the years 2006-2012.

If, upon reading this, you encounter the questions “Why is this here?” or “Why is this not here?”, please remember that these lists are primarily opinion-based, and that our criteria may differ from yours, but feel free to enter the conversation in the comments section. In any case, take time to enjoy the samples, the histories, and the songs themselves.

If you missed our last list, highlighting Ye’s works from 1999-2005, you can catch up here.

*We didn’t include tracks where Kanye was not the lead producer (eg. “New God Flow,” “Mercy”)

    Even though he sold it, “We Gone Make It” by Jadakiss should’ve been on the list

    pretty sure DJ Toomp made “Cant Tell Me Nothing”… it was originally a Jeezy song, whikch is why the ad-lib is there… thats bad, since you have it as his #1 beat… I could be wrong though

      The song was produced by kanye AND dj toomp. plus kanye always has a bunch of people do additional vocals and what have you. that does not mean the song was originally for them. he could have had dj toomp take off the ad-libs if he really didnt want it there.

    “Live Fast, Die Young” should have made top 5, and it’s not even on the list.

  • Solo

    This list must of been made by a 15 year old hipster


    You can definitely see your skills within the paintings you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. Always follow your heart. NPVNLRITBUBOXDYJA
