most overrated hip hop artist today. he’s so fucking cheesy and i don’t like his voice.
Yeezus by Kanye West review
On Sight: The strangest opening to a Kanye album to date. More of an intro than a full length track. Stars off will a dirty beat then rapidly turning to a nasty infectious dance synth. This track will have the clubs banging, people dancing stupid, and mollies popping. Lyrics are pretty damn good and oddly go with a beat like this. As a fan of dance music, this really gripped me into the album. Only flaw is the soulful sample could of been longer or added in more. The song just had me craving more. 8/10
Black Skinhead: The track I was looking forward to the most. Dark and vicious. Kanye pulls no punches on this song. A catchy dark industrial beat supports Ye’s vicious lyrics. Screams were were unsettling and the outro is just fucking amazing. This song could be a hit and can make more people realize what a genius Kanye is. Strong awesome flow. Possibly the most addicting song on the album 10/10
I Am a God. The most hyped track on the album. Definitely the creepiest and darkest sounding. However not nearly the best. Should of been the Runaway of the album. Lyrics are basic but somehow it works. Just wanted more from this track! Would of loved it be longer. Probably the weakest song on the album but I fucking loved it. 7/10
New Slaves. A light beat with meaningful and loud lyrics. Clear production. A single worthy track. Kanye kept the beat pretty simple due to the lyrics. He wanted people pay less attention to the beat and more to the lyrics. Shut the fuck up and listen to Ye. The outro has an very emotional feeling. Just wished I heard more of Frank. 9.5/10
Hold My Liquor. When I heard Chief Keef was going to be on the album I got worried. Faith was dropping. All of that went straight out of the window. Something very hypnotic, strange, and beautiful about this song. A near perfect song. It shows that Kanye can make any rapper look good. He brought out the A+ game in Chief. Beat is relaxing and beautiful. Lyrics are such a pleasure to listen. Kanye had the best part. OF COURSE! 9.5/10
I’m In It. Sexy is the best way to describe this song. Beat is scandalous. An extremely intense raw feeling. The most sexual song Kanye has done so far. I found the lyrics to be funny, honestly. Maybe that’s what Ye was going for. Kanye shows that you can make anything good. He shows it like a motherfucking beast on this track. This is how you do a dirty song. Take notes, Lil Fag.
Blood On The Leaves. The 808 track of the album. I enjoyed it a lot better than most of the tracks on 808. The autotuned song shows that Ye still has that power. A heart touching song to me. Sounds futuristic. A HUGE standout on the album. This should please anyone who is a fan of 808. Single worthy!
Guilt Trip. A blazing style track. Kanye joins up with Cudi once again and damn! They still can make magic together. Beat is straight up soulful. Lyrics are beautiful. Hook is amazing from Cudi. Maybe not as great as Gorgeous but it’s a hell of contender. 9/10
Send It Up. A highly intense song that’s supported by it’s powerful beat. A loud sinister siren that warns everyone Ye does not give a flying fuck. Can have any dumb bitch fucking everyone in the club. I could see myself jumping like a retard to this. song. Actually, I was. Lyrics however could be better but they are surprisingly good to a beat like this. 8.5/10
Bound 2. Kanye’s most original and innovative soul song to date. Lots of people that were a fan of LR, might be pleased with this song. A standout and the most easy to lay down and listen to. A somewhat cheefull sample mixed with Ye’s heartfelt lyrics. Possibly one of the best soul songs he has ever done. I can see this one being a hit. 10/10
Overally I give the album a 9/10. The best album of the year so far. Not one song is filler. Each one stands out. Will everyone like it? Probably not. This is a brand new direction that Ye has gone in. Most likely other rappers will follow. His most creative album to date. Is it his best? No. Is it better than My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy? No. It doesn’t have to be though. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is a perfect masterpiece. It is the best. You can’t beat the best.
Might take a while for a lot of fans to like this album. Some will hate it, some will love it. I for one love the hell out of it. Another Kanye West masterpiece. Worth the wait. Was not disappointed at all. I would only be disappointed if Kanye DIDN’T change his sound. He proves once again he is the bravest in the game. The most original hip hop artist in a long long LONG time. The big question is, where does Kanye go from here?
