    kanye deserve more. yeezus tour is one of the best tour not just in rap but in history of music. for me its that great. myself as an artist, designer i can relate to what kanye is saying now. those rants about art, design is very inspirational. and that frustration when you can create more and you cant, damn i undestand kanye. im just glad that kanye is making music like yeezus now, because its like for artists. yeezus is for designers

    Congrats to Kanye. Been a long year, hopefully the rants for next year are minimal and the music speaks louder. I dare 2Dopeboyz to report this on their site, they won’t.

    I just wonder what they are basing their rankings off of considering the red tour from Taylor swift made over 115 million dollars, pink’s tour over 170 million and several several others over the 100 million mark
