New Kanye West Album - Out June 18
« on: May 19, 2013, 05:48:21 AM »
We've heard two new songs now and both are really different but kind of how I expected. Kanye's really diving headlong into racially-inspired lyrics.

Will it be better than MBDTF? I doubt it, but could be a huge game changer for rap.

I have never seen a bigger, whinier baby than Kanye West, save perhaps Morrissey.

Say what you will about his personality, but Kanye delivers the goods.

Kanye steals the goods from other more talented people, slaps a beat on top, and then brags about himself over it. REVOLUTIONARY. Not. He's really no better than Vanilla Ice in that regard.

Kanye is a fantastic rap producer, but I think he's a borderline terrible rapper.

What's the difference?

How can you "produce" musical samples of songs you didn't write? O.o

AH YES A KANYE THREAD.  8)

I am so hyped for Yeezus (thank god it's not called I Am God, that would have been too much), and New Slaves is incredible. This is going to be amazing. If not, I will have lost all faith in hip-hop

I was forced to endure 3 of his new songs on The Jools Holland Show last week. The immediate thought i had was....what a pile of crap all the tunes were.
And to add to his tag of being an award winning d*****bag...rumour has it...he insisted on the carpet in his changing room being ironed. What a fanny!!

I find it quite odd that Lou Reed was actually impressed with this guy.

he was on my playlist for exactly 15 mins.
that's it, that's all the time I could afford him.  after that, I deleted the entire album (Yeezus).

Lou Reed is probably endorsing him from an artistic POV. Have you heard Metal Machine Music?
