Song writer and record executive, LA Reid, made headlines this morning after drawing comparisons between superstar Kanye West and Legend, Prince.

“Kanye West, for me, is one of the greatest if not the greatest performers, entertainers, musicians of all time,” Reid tells “Access Hollywood.” “He’s right up there with the greats. People may not recognize it today, but I promise you a few years from today we’re going to look back and say, ‘Oh my God, what an amazing, amazing talent.’ People love Kanye for sure, but he’s great, great. I mean on the level of Prince. But modern-day, he’s hip-hop. He’s not the same thing. He doesn’t play guitar, he doesn’t play piano. He’s not that kind of performer, but for hip-hop he is a king.”
