Kanye West's new album dropped today... what are your thoughts?

 

 

I think it's a lens into his mental health and he's quite candid about his experiences...

He talks about how he claimed 'slavery was a choice' and how Kim (his wife) refused to leave & her dedication to him.

 

It's an interesting listen, it's short with only 7 tracks and a 24 minute run time. To me, it feels reminiscent of older Kanye, graduation days even. The beats are really good for the heavy subject matter.

 

For me, it isn't his best work but it's raw and I appreciate it. 

 

I'd love to know your initial thoughts, criticisms or accolades. 

 

Are you over Kanye? concerned? disinterested?

I have really enjoyed it thus far. My favorite track is Ghost Town.

Does it feature the scoopity-poop? Poopdiddy whoop?

 

Heck, I'll check it out.

 

If nothing else, I kinda want to appropriate the fun quote from the album cover. He's taken it from the zeitgeist, so it's only fair that I do the same, right?

Spoiler
.....This version is probably the best, though

I really enjoyed Ghost Town, I found Yikes very enjoyable and probably one of my favs.

And juuuuuuust to make sure this piece of epic lyricizing doesn't go unnoticed, I'm going to embed the shit out of that link I posted above.

 

Jump to 1:40 for that fire.

 

 

Apparently when he's writing the music, Kanye will just scat over the beat and then go back and write the lyrics later.

 

 

This next verse? THIS NEXT VERSE THOUGH?!? These bars.... watch this ish

 

Poopidy scoop. Scoop diddy whoop. Whoop! De scoop! De Whoop!

 

POOP! .......... POOP!

I cry every damn time I listen to Ghost Town. I'm not bipolar but that need to escape all the emptiness and darkness in life has been all too familiar. Kanye has really pissed me off lately but I genuinely liked this album and Kids See Ghosts. There's definitely some great messages in these songs and I hope he starts putting them to better use in his own life.
