    i think so… Prince doesn’t usually take MALES on stage with him, especially artist from THIS and make them do their OWN thing on stage… if he didnt respect them. I dont think Kanye anywhere new Princes level, but he is definitely reinventing the sound of hip just like Prince did with R&B. E.g you can hear Kanye’s 808 & Heartbreak influence on Drake HEAVY!!!
