Kanye Triumphant In Spin Magazine Polls

Multi-GRAMMY AWARD-nominated rapper/producer KANYE WEST has another

reason to celebrate - he has been named the Artist of The Year in American

music magazine SPIN.

The JESUS WALKS hitmaker picked up more Grammy nods than any other

performer earlier this month (DEC04) and he isn't shy when it comes to

claiming he deserves all the accolades.

He tells Spin, "When you remember 2004, you will remember Kanye West... It

was Kanye West, no matter where you went."

West also claimed Spin's Album of The Year honours - his THE COLLEGE

DROPOUT album beat GREEN DAY's AMERICAN IDIOT and FRANZ FERDINAND's

eponymous debut for the top spot.

Meanwhile, American Idiot by Green Day was named the Best Single of 2004, ahead of YEAH YEAH YEAHS' MAPS and ALL FALLS DOWN by West, and THE PIXIES claimed Comeback of The Year honours.
