Polls: Do You Like Kanye West's 'Yeezus' Album?

Following from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy — which Kanye West recently told The New York Times wasn’t his best effort — Mr. West deliverers his sixth solo album via Def Jam Recordings. Featuring legendary artists like Daft Punk and Rick Rubin on production, amid those classified as part of the “new school” — Chief Keef, King L and Frank Ocean — the rapper’s latest effort is perhaps his most provocative. Pushing boundaries with offbeat sampling and controversial lyrics, Yeezus as a project has been unconventional from the start, with each promotional tool thoroughly thought out. Hence this begs the question on whether the album is merely another musical release, or another enticing statement? Stringing together influences of Chicago drill, dancehall, industrial and acid house, Yeezus comes in experimental departure from the likes of  Graduation, and further more Late Registration. Is Yeezus another progressive step in the rapper’s foray into hip-hop or has ‘Ye taken it all too far with this beckoning release?
