An Updated & Pablofied ranking of Every Kanye West Song Ever

If Kanye West is allowed to continually update his new album, I’m allowed to republish this list. As before, the same Kanye rules apply (he must say a word on a song for it to count, and skits don’t count at all), but now every song from new album The Life Of Pablo is on this ridiculous list.*

I also haven’t counted any songs that are yet to have a commercial release, which means the leaks, including the All Day remix featuring Kendrick Lamar and the proper version of Wolves, are unavailable to rank.

I hope you can get to sleep tonight with that knowledge. Enjoy.

*Pablo songs are the ones in italics. And also orange.

283 – Birthday Song (2 Chainz, Kanye West)

This is disgusting. Everything about it makes me want to rip my own eyes out.

282 – I Wish You Would (DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, Kanye West)

281 – Pro Nails (Kid Sister, Kanye West)

280 – Billie Jean 2008 (Michael Jackson, Kanye West)

Why does this exist? In what world did somebody think either this was a good idea, or that it would add anything to anybody?

279 – Whatever You Want (Consequence, John Legend, Kanye West)

278 – In For The Kill Remix (La Roux, Kanye West)

277 – Anyone But Him (Mr Hudson, Kanye West)

Anyone but Mr Hudson please.

276 – Hurricane 2.0 (Thirty Seconds To Mars, Kanye West)

275 – We Alright (Joe Young, Kanye West)

274 – No One – Remix (Alicia Keys, Kanye West)

Probably the worst Kanye has ever been at singing.

273 – This Ain’t a Scene, It’s An Arms Race – (Fall Out Boy, Kanye West)

272 – Marvin & Chardonnay – (Big Sean, Roscoe Dash, Kanye West)

Sounds like somebody drowned a decent song in the bath.

271 – Lollipop Remix – (Lil Wayne, Static Major, Kanye West)

270 – Teriya-King – (Teriyaki Boyz, Big Sean, Kanye West)

269 – Candy – (Myleka, Sharpp, Kanye West)

268 – Everyone Nose (All the Girls Standing in the Line for the Bathroom) – Remix (N.E.R.D, Lupe Fiasco, Pusha T, Kanye West)

267 – Impossible (Twista, Keyshia, Kanye West)

266 – Gifted – (N.A.S.A, Santigold, Lykke Li, Kanye West)

265 – Back To Basics – (Common, Kanye West)

264 – Facts – (Kanye West)

The intro saved this from being bottom 5. It’s shite. Also, why would you send a diss track to Nike?

263 – Changing Lanes – (CHOPS, Kanye West)

262 – Freestyle 4 (Kanye West)

The Nadir Of Pablo. This sounds unfinished, unneeded and messy. Don’t bother.

261 – Nobody – (Chief Keef, Kanye West)

260 – H.A.M – (Kanye West/Jay Z)

The beat on this goes through me, and not in a nice way.

259 – Side 2 Side – Extended Remix – (Three 6 Mafia, Project Pat, Kanye West)

258 – Champions – (Damon Dash, Beanie Sigel, Cam’Ron, Young Chris, Twista, Kanye West)

257 – Facts – Charlie Heat Version – (Kanye West)

It’s still awful, it still shouldn’t have made the album in whatever form. It gains points for having a slightly better beat than the original, but loses nearly as many by ruining the sample at the beginning with that “CHA-CHARLIE HEET” shit.

256 – Diamonds – (Teairra Mari, Kanye West)

255 – Amazing – (Kanye West, Jeezy)

254 – Amen – (Pusha T, Jeezy, Kanye West)

253 – Who Gon Stop Me – (Kanye West/Jay Z)

252 – Walkin’ On The Moon – (The-Dream, Kanye West)

251 – The New Workout Plan – (Kanye West)

250 – I Still Love H.E.R. – (Teriyaki Boyz, Kanye West)

Who the fuck are the Teriyaki Boyz and why do they have more collaborations with Kanye than Eminem?

249 – Tell Me When To Go – Remix – (E-40, Ice Cube, The Game, Kanye West)

248 – Let’s Get Married – Reception Remix – (Jagged Edge, Kanye West)

247 – Buy U A Drank Remix – (T-Pain, Kanye West)

246 – On Sight (Kanye West)

Yeezus’s skidmark.

245 – I’m the Shit – Remix (DJ Class, Estelle, Kanye West)

244 – Feedback (Kanye West)

This is average to disappointing. This mini-review is as empty as the song itself.

243 – All Your Fault – (Big Sean, Kanye West)

242 – Excuse Me Miss Again – (Jay Z, Kanye West)

241 – Pride N Joy – (Fat Joe, Jadakiss, Kanye West)

240 – Selfish – (Slum Village, John Legend, Kanye West)

239 – Ego – Remix – (Beyoncé, Kanye West)

238 – Heavy Hitters – (GLC, Kanye West)

228 – The Summer League – (Wale, Ty Dolla $ign, Kanye West)

227 – I Got a Love – (Jin, Kanye West)

226 – Getting’ It In – (Jadakiss, Kanye West)

225 – Welcome 2 Chicago – (Abstract Mindstate, Kanye West)

224 – Illest Motherfucker Alive – (Kanye West/Jay Z)

223 – Number One – (John Legend, Kanye West)

222 – E.T. – (Katy Perry, Kanye West)

221 – Turn Yourself In – (Consequence, Kanye West)

220 – Punch Drunk Love – (Common, Kanye West)

219 – Deuces – Remix (Chris Brown, Drake, Andre 3000, Kanye West)

218 – Would You Like To Ride – (Malik Yusef, Kanye West)

217 – Plastic – (Really Doe, Kanye West)

216 – Coldest Winter – (Kanye West)

215 – Mula – (The Game, Kanye West)

214 – Glenwood – (Big Sean, Kanye West)

213 – You Don’t Know – (J’Nan, GLC, Kanye West)

212 – Hate – (Jay Z, Kanye West)

211 – Father Stretch My Hands pt. 2 – (Kanye West, Desiigner)

It’d be all well and good if this was actually West’s song. But for sheer laziness and nicking an entire verse of a song that hadn’t even come out yet (Desiigner’s Panda) this doesn’t deserve a Top 200 spot.

210 – Pusha Man – (Bump J., Kanye West)

209 – The Corner – (Common, The Last Poets, Kanye West)

208 – Digital Girl – (Jamie Foxx, Drake, The-Dream, Kanye West)

207 – Purrty Woman – (Kidz In The Hall, Kanye West)

206 – Pretty Girl Rock – Remix – (Keri Hilson, Kanye West)

Pointless remix. Kanye loves a pointless remix.

205 – Maybach Music 2 – (Rick Ross, T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Kanye West)

204 – Flight School – (GLC, T-Pain, Kanye West)

203 – It’s Over – (John Legend, Kanye West)

202 – Ghetto – (Smitty, John Legend, Scarface, Kanye West)

201 – Jesus Piece – (The Game, Common, Kanye West)

200 – The Way That You Do – (Carl Thomas, Kanye West)

199 – Down – (Chris Brown, Kanye West)

198 – Go Hard – Remix – (DJ Khaled, Jay Z, T-Pain, Kanye West)

197 – Grammy Family – (DJ Khaled, Consequence, John Legend, Kanye West)

As funny as DJ Khaled might be on Snapchat, you remember that this is what he gets paid for, and it’s by and large completely awful. Drags everybody down with him.

196 – I Don’t Like – (Kanye West, Chief Keef, Pusha T, Big Sean, Jadakiss)

195 – Promised Land – (Malik Yusef, Adam Levine, Kanye West)

194 – In The Mood – (Talib Kweli, Kanye West)

184 – Scape Goat (The Fix) – (D’Banj, Kanye West)

183 – Down And Out – (Cam’Ron, Syleena Johnson, Kanye West)

182 – Drunk and Hot Girls – (Kanye West, Mos Def)

181 – New God Flow – (Kanye West, Pusha T)

Where have I heard the start of that song before, eh?

180 – Higher – (Do or Die, Kanye West)

179 – I’m In It – (Kanye West)

178 – Talk About Our Love – (Brandy, Kanye West)

177 – Call Some Hoes – (Chamillionaire, Stat Quo, Kanye West)

175 – Like This/Almost – (DJ Clue, Fabolous, Kanye West)

174 – Get By – Remix – (Talib Kweli, Jay Z, Mos Def, Busta Rhymes, Kanye West)

173 – My Baby – (Janet Jackson, Kanye West)

172 – Primetime – (Kanye West/Jay Z)

171 – Kinda Like a Big Deal – (Clipse, Kanye West)

170 – Paid the Price – (Do or Die, Kanye West)

169 – Do You Have The Stamina – (B.o.B, Kanye West)

168 – Breathe In Breathe Out – (Kanye West, Ludacris)

167 – Because of You – Remix – (Ne-Yo, Kanye West)

166 – Fade – (Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign, Post Malone)

Had the potential to be the best song on Pablo. It should rip through you, and it would, if it had a recognisable bassline. Instead, it’s only memorable because it made me look up post Malone and see what he looks like.

165 – Barry Bonds – (Kanye West, Lil Wayne)

164 – Southside – (Common, Kanye West)

163 – This Way – (Dilated Peoples, Kanye West)

162 – Take It as a Loss – (Consequence, Kanye West)

161 – Pinocchio Story – (Kanye West)

160 – Never Change – (Jay Z, Kanye West)

159 – Therapy – (T-Pain, Kanye West)

158 – We Can Make It Better – (Kanye West, Talib Qweli, Q-Tip, Common, Rhymefest)

157 – We Fight/We Love – Remix – (Consequence, Q-Tip, Kanye West)

156 – I Changed My Mind – (Keyshia Cole, Kanye West)

155 – Send It Up – (Kanye West)

154 – Real Love – (Rell, Consequence, Kanye West)

153 – Guilt Trip – (Kanye West)

152 – Gorgeous – (Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Rakewon)

Worst song on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which in most cases would be an insult. Not too much wrong with this, just falls behind massively high standards.

151 – Paranoid – (Kanye West, Mr Hudson)

Mr Hudson can still piss off though.

150 – Still Dreaming – (Nas, Chrisette Michele, Kanye West)

149 – Bad News – (Kanye West)

148 – Grown Man Pt. 2 – (Young Gunz, John Legend, Kanye West)

147 – The Food – (Common, Kanye West)

146 – Live Fast, Die Young – (Rick Ross, Kanye West)

145 – Piss On Your Grave – (Travi$ Scott, Kanye West)

What a stupid title. I love it.

144 – M.P.A – (Pusha T, A$AP Rocky, The-Dream, Kanye West)

143 – Forever – (Eminem, Drake, Lil Wayne, Kanye West)

Looks fantastic on paper, becomes a sort of open mic session for incredibly successful rappers in practise.

142 – Crack Music – (Kanye West, The Game)

141 – Alors On Danse – (Stromae, Kanye West)

140 – Celebration – (Kanye West)

139 – Cold – (Kanye West, DJ Khaled)

138 – Erase Me – (Kid Cudi, Kanye West)

137 – Wouldn’t Get Far – (The Game, Kanye West)

136 – Anything – (Patti LaBelle, Consequence, Mary Mary, Kanye West)

135 – White Dress – (Kanye West)

134 – Two Words – (Kanye West, Mos Def, Freeway, The Boys Choir of Harlem)

133 – Highlights – (Kanye West, Young Thug)

It’s grown on me quite a lot in the short time it’s been out, but that horrible Ray J line, which is one of the worst I’ve ever heard, limits it’s potential.

132 – Murder To Excellence – (Kanye West/Jay Z)

131 – The Joy – (Kanye West/Jay Z, Curtis Mayfield)

130 – More – (Rhymefest, Kanye West)

129 – Good Night – (Kanye West, Mos Def, Albe Back)

128 – Last Call – (Kanye West)

127 – Get Em High – (Kanye West, Talib Kweli, Common)

126 – Everybody – (Fonzworth Bentley, Andre 3000, Kanye West)

Kanye with the Mr Steal Your Girl moves.

125 – All Of The Lights – (Kanye West, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Elton John, Fergie, John Legend, The-Dream, Tony Williams, Kid Cudi, Charlie Wilson, Ryan Leslie, Elly Jackson)

Overrated.

124 – New Day – (Kanye West/Jay Z)

123 – Street Lights – (Kanye West)

122 – My Way – (Purple City, Kanye West)

121 – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly – (Consequence, Kanye West)

120 – See You in My Nightmares – (Kanye West, Lil Wayne)

119 – Welcome To The Jungle – (Kanye West/Jay Z)

118 – So Soulful – (Consequence, Kanye West)

117 – Jukebox Joints – (A$AP Rocky, Joe Fox, Kanye West)

116 – Touch It – (Pusha T, Kanye West)

115 – Thank You – (Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip, Lil Wayne, Kanye West)

114 – Blazin – (Nicki Minaj, Kanye West)

113 – Roses – (Kanye West)

112 – It’s Alright – Welcome Back Remix – (Mase, Kanye West)

111 – Sanctified – (Rick Ross, Big Sean, Kanye West)

110 – Drunk In Love – Remix – (Beyoncé, Jay Z, Kanye West)

109 – Go! – (Common, John Mayer, Kanye West)

108 – 30 Hours – (Kanye West, Andre 3000)

First half of this song standalone would probably have got Top 50. A pity then that it envelopes into a rather awkward couple of closing minutes.

107 – Getting Out The Game – (Consequence, Kanye West)

106 – We Major – (Kanye West, Nas, Really Doe)

105 – Extravaganza – (Jamie Foxx, Kanye West)

104 – Late – (Kanye West)

103 – Wouldn’t You Like To… – (Malik Yusef, Jv, Common, Kanye West)

102 – Radio Siberia – (WestBam, Kanye West)

101 – Mercy – (Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz)

One of many cases of Kanye’s production bringing out the best in others.

100 – Back Like That – Remix – (Ghostface Killah, Kanye West)

99 – Only One – (Kanye West, Paul McCartney)

98 – One Man Can Change The World – (Big Sean, John Legend, Kanye West)

97 – Line for Line – (Grav, Kanye West)

Mr West’s first commercial song, released back in 1996. He starts at 42 seconds in, in case you don’t recognise him. He raps like Ghostface Killah!

96 – Waves – (Kanye West, Chris Brown)

DASSJUSTDAWAVVVEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Grateful to Chance the Rapper for pushing to get this on the album, but it’s nothing more than decent.

95 – Can’t Stop – (Theophilus London, Kanye West)

94 – Addiction – (Kanye West)

93 – Welcome To The World – (T.I, Kid Cudi, Jason Geter, Kanye West)

92 – Homecoming – (Kanye West, Chris Martin)

91 – Why I Love You – (Kanye West/Jay Z, Mr Hudson)

90 – POWER – (Kanye West)

89 – Good Morning – (Kanye West)

88 – What You Do To Me – (Infamous Syndicate, Kanye West)

87 – My Drink n My 2 Step – Remix – (Cassidy, Ne-Yo, Swizz Beatz, Kanye West)

86 – Confessions Part II Remix – (Usher, Shyne, Twista, Kanye West)

85 – They Say – (Common, John Legend, Kanye West)

84 – Drive Slow – (Kanye West, Paul Wall, GLC)

83 – Eyez Closed – (Snoop Dogg, John Legend, Kanye West)

82 – Rollin – (The Game, Trae tha Truth, Z-Ro, Paul Wall, Slim Thug, Kanye West)

81 – 03 ‘til Infinity – (Consequence, Kanye West)

80 – I’ma Get You – (N.O.R.E., GLC, Kanye West)

79 – That’s My Bitch – (Kanye West, Jay Z)

78 – Father Stretch My Hands pt. 1 (Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Future)

The most meme-worthy song on The Life Of Pablo is by no means it’s best, but it doesn’t commit thievery like it’s sequel, and has just as much 2016 Future in it that I will allow. Well done.

77 – Number One – (Pharell, Kanye West)

76 – Another You – (The World Famous Tony Williams, Kanye West)

75 – Gone – (Kanye West, Consequence, Cam’Ron)

74 – Wolves – (Kanye West, Vic Mensa, Sia, F̶r̶a̶n̶k̶ ̶O̶c̶e̶a̶n̶)

“I’ma fix Wolves”, Kanye said. Well, about 4 versions later from it’s unassuming original release, Wolves currently has Vic Mensa (like it should), Sia (but not how I wanted her), and Frank Ocean is subjected to his own shitty little 38 second verse/song. A complete mess of a song, which is a shame considering how good one of the versions I’ve heard was.

73 – Oh Oh – (Melbeatz, Kanye West)

72 – Make Her Say – (Kid Cudi, Common, Kanye West)

71 – Say You Will – (Kanye West)

70 – Famous – (Kanye West, Rihanna, Swizz Beatz)

The Bam Bam is incredible. Otherwise a very generic song, I just can’t get enough of the Bam Bam. Listen to the fucking Bam Bam!

69 – Hey Mama – (Kanye West)

68 – Niggas In Paris – (Kanye West/Jay Z)

One of the biggest things that Kanye has ever done is aging reasonably well.

67 – Blessings – (Big Sean, Drake, Kanye West)

66 – Gotta Have It – (Kanye West/Jay Z)

65 – FourFiveSeconds – (Rihanna, Paul McCartney, Kanye West)

64 – Sailing Not Selling – (Jhene Aiko, Kanye West)

63 – Welcome To Heartbreak – (Kanye West, Kid Cudi)

62 – Run This Town – (Jay Z, Rihanna, Kanye West)

61 – Love Lockdown – (Kanye West)

Why do people hate 808’s and Heartbreak when it has stuff like this 😦

60 – I Am A God – (Kanye West, God)

59 – Hell Of A Life – (Kanye West)

58 – The Glory – (Kanye West)

57 – U Know – (White Boy, John Legend, Kanye West)

56 – School Spirit – (Kanye West)

55 – I See Now – (Consequence, Little Brother, Kanye West)

54 – Bring Me Down – (Kanye West, Brandy)

53 – Clique – (Kanye West, Big Sean, Jay Z)

52 – Say You Will – (Kanye West, Caroline Shaw)

51 – SMUCKERS – (Tyler, The Creator, Lil Wayne, Kanye West)

50 – I Won (Future, Kanye West)

He brought the best out in Future! Wonders will never cease.

49 – Through The Wire – (Kanye West)

48 – Bound 2 – (Kanye West)

As much as I like this, how hard is it to mouth “Uh huh, honey”, Kim?

47 – All Day – (Kanye West, Theophilus London)

What is essentially a throwaway song became both the saviour of UK Grime and the best thing to happen at the Brits in over a decade. Impressive.

46 – Supernova – (Mr Hudson, Kanye West)

45 – Jesus Walks – (Kanye West)

44 – Heartless – (Kanye West)

43 – Good Life – (Kanye West, T-Pain)

42 – To The World – (Kanye West, R. Kelly, Teyana Taylor)

41 – Family Business – (Kanye West)

40 – Diamonds – Remix – (Rihanna, Kanye West)

This is what you call a non-pointless remix, ‘Ye. Do more of this.

39 – So Appalled (Kanye West, Jay Z, Pusha T, Prynce Cy Hi, Swizz Beatz, RZA)

38 – FML – (Kanye West, The Weeknd)

If Kanye and Abel’s first collaboration is anything to go by, in a couple of years I’m going to want a full on joint album. The production on this strangely heartfelt song is top tier.

37 – Otis – (Kanye West, Jay Z, Otis Redding)

36 – Can’t Tell Me Nothing – (Kanye West)

35 – Blame Game – (Kanye West, John Legend)

34 – Knock You Down – (Keri Hilson, Kanye West)

33 – Monster – (Kanye West, Jay Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Bon Iver)

Simply the best thing Nicki Minaj has or ever will do musically. She absolutely makes this song, I’d give her a Grammy just for that verse.

32 – Slow Jamz – (Kanye West, Twista, Jamie Foxx)

31 – The One – (Kanye West, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Marsha Ambrosius)

30 – U Mad – (Vic Mensa, Kanye West)

29 – Lift Off – (Jay Z, Kanye West, Beyonce)

Very under the radar song on what was in the end a very under-par album.

28 – Champion – (Kanye West)

27 – RoboCop – (Kanye West)

26 – We Don’t Care – (Kanye West)

25 – Stronger – (Kanye West)

24 – Spaceship – (Kanye West, GLC, Consequence)

23 – Flashing Lights – (Kanye West)

22 – Dark Fantasy – (Kanye West)

Is there a better intro song on a rap album, and will there ever be?

21 – Hold My Liquor – (Kanye West)

20 – American Boy – (Estelle, Kanye West)

20 – American Boy – (Estelle, Kanye West)

19 – See Me Now – (Kanye West, Beyonce, Big Sean)

Kanye should go on big, lengthy verses more often. He’s quite good at them.

18 – Gold Digger – (Kanye West, Jamie Foxx)

The most recognisable thing he’s ever done, and one of the best.

17 – Diamonds From Sierra Leone – (Kanye West)

The first Kanye West song I ever liked.

16 – Made In America – (Kanye West/Jay Z, Frank Ocean)

Where are you Frank, seriously? Makes what should be an average song spectacular.

15 – Real Friends – (Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign)

The sound that so many had waited to hear arrived a week after the shitheap that was Facts. Kanye was back, and just how we wanted him to be. Also back in the halycon days before the clusterfuck of the album release for TLOP itself.

14 – I Wonder – (Kanye West)

13 – Black Skinhead – (Kanye West)

Yeezus’s dirtiest track, it rumbles along as the musical equivalent of a tsunami.

12 – All Falls Down – (Kanye West)

11 – Touch The Sky – (Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco)

10 – Everything I Am – (Kanye West, DJ Premier)

“Kanye’s an egotistical, selfish bellend who thinks he is a God”.

Listen to this before having that judgement please.

9 – New Slaves – (Kanye West)

Best outro to a song on this list, if not ever. It’s that good.

8 – No Church In The Wild – (Jay Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean)

Seriously Frankie, you need to get your arse in gear and at least pop your head out and say hi or something. We all miss you.

7 – Lost In The World – (Kanye West, Bon Iver)

This is the song I always go back to when I haven’t listened to Kanye in a while. It’s got so much to it it’s scary.

6 – Blood On The Leaves – (Kanye West)

Yeezus gets a bad rap, because when it’s good, it’s amazing. Blood On The Leaves is undoubtedly the best song on the album, as everything just clicks as it should.

5 – Ultralight Beam – (Kanye West, Chance the Rapper, Kirk Franklin)

4 – Heard ‘Em Say – (Kanye West, Adam Levine)

A forgotten classic. It seems to me to be the song that everybody likes but nobody remembers when they think of their favourite Kanye songs.

3 – Runaway – (Kanye West, Pusha T)

I really thought about putting this first, and many people would do. In a time where Kanye’s career had gone somewhat awry, what with him storming Taylor Swift acceptance speeches, and a President of America calling him a jackass. This was his apology letter, his statement of wrongdoing. It made up for everything.

2 – Devil In A New Dress – (Kanye West, Rick Ross)

The best of Kanye, in every sense. The production, the lyrics, the structure to it all. Even making Rick Ross sound like that has to be applauded. Simply stunning and a song that is near-perfect from start to finish.

1 – No More Parties In L.A – (Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar)

If you read the previous version of this list, you might remember that this song was on it. And it was 6th. I was very wrong. This is quintessential hip-hop to the core, it flows like it was woven rather than written. Kendrick and Kanye compliment each other on what is somehow their first ever collaboration. The Life Of Pablo could have just replaced the crap with identical versions of this and it’d be the best album of 2016. As it happens, Kanye West’s finest piece of work is somewhat tainted by being on arguably his least acclaimed album.
