2013 was Kanye's year.

On top of releasing "Yeezus," one of the year's best and bravest albums, he dropped plans to eclipse Wal-Mart, declared war on disrespectful late night show hosts, and became a father to North West, his daughter with fiancé Kim Kardashian.

So that's why we're not really into sending him up or tearing him down.

Kanye West has cultivated a career defined by his intelligence, outspokenness, and ridiculously high standards he's set for himself. True, those have led to some questionable decision-making, egotistical exclamations and foolish outbursts. But without those moments, he wouldn't be the Kanye we know and, yes, love.

So with that in mind, here are our favourite Kanye West moments, beginning with the one that even Obama maligned him for.
