Kanye West's Birthday: The Rapper's Best Sound Bites (VIDEO)

Love him or hate him, Kanye West still knows how to stoke national conversation. The rapper, fashion designer and -- who can forget, nowadays -- boyfriend of Kim Kardashian turns 36 years old today (June 8), and continues to polarize the American public with his brand of musical talent, bold fashion and unpredictable personality.

In honor of Kanye's birthday, HuffPost Celebrity has created a mashup of the rapper's best sound bites -- because who else has the ability to become an instant meme (after Taylor Swift-gate), sell millions of records (and be a critic's darling), and offend not one, but two presidents (George W. Bush and Barack Obama)?

Watch the above video and see for yourself.
