2008 became 2009, and everyone knows what happened to Kanye at the VMA’s, so we can gloss over that.  To escape the heat, he took time away from music to pursue other ventures, but landed in Hawaii for several months to work on his fifth album, the epic My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy which was released in November 2010.  It was a righteous comeback, and West poured plenty of himself into that album while bringing along a huge cast of guests.  His follow-up in 2013, the dark and skimpy Yeezus, would prove to be just as compelling, but for
