Kanye West – “Yeezus” Review


Written by Skizza 

This is the cold marble-tile of your 5 Star hotel suite’s bathroom floor pressed against your back as you slowly choke to death on your own champagne-flavored vomit.  How did you get here?  Like most great stories I’d be willing to bet this one started with a stripper.   She looks just enough like “her” to remind you how much you love “her” and just different enough that you can almost forget how much “she” actually hates your guts.  It couldn’t have been more than 4 hours ago she flipped down the passenger seat sun visor in whichever the fuck car it was you were driving that night, Instagramming herself in the rear-view mirror as you swung through traffic – first fast, and then slow, and then sideways, or maybe all three at once.   The sum total of all the substances in your stomach and your blood and your brain filtering the sound of your speakers into something metallic and alien; an electric starship motor humming and whirring, the occasional clang of clarity striking out with beautiful, discordant, ecstatic pain leaving bite marks on your earlobes.

    Loving the way you express how this album make you feel. Personally I think this album is a game changer, as well as many of his other ones. I’m not saying it’s a five star. But the sounds, attitude, lyrics etc… it all sums up a feel that we will hear more of in near future. Every “real” rap fan hated 808 and heartbreaks. But the fact is, it is one of the most influential albums since the 00s. Just listen to Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Drake, OFWGKTA, and a whole bunch of others

    Even most haters are inspired by this dude. That’s how important he is. And he ain’t even one of my absolute favourites. These are just the facts.
