Bruce Springsteen praises 'incredible' Kanye West

ROCK legend Bruce Springsteen has heaped praise on Kanye West, describing the rapper as an "incredible" artist who is dedicated to his craft.

The rock icon has heaped praise on the rapper for his dedication to innovation, and for putting in "a lot of hours" to make his albums to the best of his abilities.

Speaking to NPR, he said: "[He] is incredible. I mean, the record-making facility, there's a lot of hours in those records.

"And I saw him on television, he did the song called 'Blood on the Leaves' on 'Later... With Jools Holland' - it was fantastic, you know."

While the 'Born to Run' musician listens to Kanye's music because he finds it "fascinating", he admitted it's not something he puts on while he's driving, instead preferring songs he grew up admiring.

He added: "I still find him very interesting. I'm not necessarily driving [to] it in my car, you know. I probably fall back on the stuff that I listened to as a kid or something if I'm driving around.

"But I do listen. I listen to [it] a lot because there's a lot of information in it and it's just fascinating record-making."
