Video: Kanye West DJs NYE Party In Las Vegas

Kanye West is one of the best Hip Hop producers in the last 10 years. His contribution to Hip Hop and the way he has helped take it to the next level is unquestionable. He's also a pretty dope MC. So when i heard that now he has joined the ranks of being a "Celebrity" DJ i was like Really????
Lindsy Lohan, Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli etc have all recently started to spin. So can they actually DJ and have talent? No. Is this another way to get a extra few grand after they ve done a show. Yes.
There are " Celebrity" DJ's like Q-Tip, D- Nice, Biz Markie who spin, who are actually good, and thats probably because they ve always been a DJ whilst also being a MC/ producer. So has Kanye got skills, or is he just another dude getting extra $$$ jumping on the bandwagon?? I dont know. All i know is if DJ'S like Funk Flex, Q-Bert, A-trak, started doing MC shows, would they be taken seriously. NO.
