YEEZUS?!

YeezusKanye West’s well known for controversy. So when he released the name of his sixth solo album – Yeezus, there was an obvious rage from bloggers denouncing it.

 

Weeks later, it leaked online a day before he became the father. I won’t get into why him and Kim Kardashian chose those names for their daughter, that’s a story for another day.

 

Anyway, I was quick to find a link to this album so I can give it a listen since I was months deep in anticipation for his current work of genius.

 

I have to say I was totally disturbed by what I put my poor ears through. I do not understand what Kanye was trying to achieve from this album, but I can only guess he was in a provocative mood that inspired him to do songs like track number 2 called “Black Skinhead” and track number 3 called “I Am a God” featuring…wait for it…GOD…I know!

 

When I listened to this particular song I couldn’t help but occasionally pause it to look round as if I was secretly watching porn. He contradicts himself by openly referring to himself as a god and still declaring that the One above is. He even goes on to have a conversation with Jesus Christ as though they are next-door neighbors talking on the phone.

 
The first track called “On sight” produced by the French duo Daft Punk disappoints from beginning to end. I think Kanye hoped to “get lucky” by working with them but that clearly didn’t work. After painfully listening to the other seven tracks I finally came across one that I think is the closest we’ll get to the old Kanye, the 10th and last song in the album called “Bound 2”. It reminded me so much of the poetic Kanye that made Late Registration a timeless album to listen to!

 
Whether it’s going to bring him a couple of Grammys – I don’t know, but I see it drawing in plenty of mixed reactions from a minority calling it a work of art and a majority like myself dubbing it a total waste of studio time and 40 minutes of play!
