Listen to Bruce Springsteen on iHeartRadio | Listen to Kanye West on iHeartRadio

Rocker Bruce Springsteen is throwing his support behind Kanye West. 

In an interview with NPR's Ann Powers, "The Boss" calls Kanye "incredible" and specifically praises his Yeezus track "Blood on the Leaves." 

Apparently, Springsteen had seen Kanye perform the track on the British late night program "Later...With Jools Holland" and thought song was "fantastic." 

According to Bruce, Kanye also deserves applause for his "fascinating record-making."  Apart from West, Springsteen also says he's a fan of hip-hop acts Public Enemy, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac.  

"The Village Voice" is also voicing their approval of Kanye West.  The emcee is topping the magazine's annual "Pazz and Jop" music critics' poll.  Not only did the critics rank his sixth album Yeezus as 2013's number one album, but they also placed three Yeezus singles in their top ten list of last year's songs.
