Kanye West- New Slaves
Kanye proves once again that above all, he's the most interesting artist in the game. Somehow in wake of wifey-ing Kim K, and preparing for fatherhood, Ye is gearing up to make his weirdest and edgiest album yet. Yeezy served two drastically different performances on SNL this weekend, from the lively industrial stomp of "Black Skinhead" to the stone-faced power speech of "New Slaves". The early descriptions of the album as "dark but very good", seem silly and almost patronizing after getting a sample of what the music actually sounds like, and it's pretty exciting that it's an artist of his magnitude that's attempting it. At the very least, we know it will never fail to be interesting.
