During a recent appearance on The Download Podcast, the Yeezy mogul discussed his evolving musical preferences, emphasizing that his favorite artists are subject to change over time.

West’s admiration for 21 Savage was noted, but he also acknowledged the inclusion of Kodak Black and rising talent Young Moose in his current roster of favorites. The dynamic nature of his musical tastes underscores his ongoing exploration and appreciation of emerging voices in the rap scene.
