the no singles, no promotion, no cover, and lack of other traditional promotion was so that people bought it for the sake of the music only.  the fuck you talkin about

Yawn. I guess I understand how people might think this album is "new" and "experimental", if they haven't listened to any music outside of common reach and popularity. It's definitely new and experimental in terms of Kanye, but that's pretty much it.  Lyrics were so rushed it's hilarious...Chief Keef is fucking shit outside of his "Back from the Dead" mixtape. 

I just talked to Jesus
He said, "what's up yeezus?"

Fucking cringe LOL
Most real quote in this thread. This album just sounds like shit you'd hear in a Brooklyn warehouse, maybe 5-7 years ago. No issues if you like this, but if it's blowing your mind, you should probably stop listening to hot 97 for your music fix.
kanye has never the best lyricist. I mean ya he's improved but you all act like he should be on some Nas level shit by now or something. And I actually enjoyed that what up yeezus line.

and lol @ people crucifying this album for just a couple filler lines

...see what i did there

it's also sort of phenomenon that Kanye doesn't try to stay relevant like Jay-Z, for example. But rather he creates relevance for himself. It's as if after Graduation, people look to Kanye to change the current game and send it in a different, refreshing direction. Name another artist that has this kind of power. Lil Wayne was on top of the world, but nobody expected mind blowing shit from him, just decent bars as with most other rappers. With Kanye it's as though he's expected to shift the sound of the genre in a different direction with every album he drops. I think that's why people might be so critical with Yeezus, because that expectation now officially goes hand in hand with Kanye's projects

i think you are pushing your own opinion on the whole world. there's a lot of people out there. people who love lil wayne and expect (and interpret) everything he does to be genius/groundbreaking/witty. conversely, there's a ton of people out there who think kanye west is garbage since late registration and expect nothing from him. i get what you mean, and i agree (as a kanye fan) but what you're really saying is:

Lil Wayne was on top of the world, but (i didn't expect) mind blowing shit from him, 

With Kanye (i expect him) to shift the sound of the genre in a different direction with every album he drops

also, jay-z is the king of shifting relevance. i mean, he actually raps about having good credit. in tom ford, he says "fuck hashtags are retweets. 140 characters in these streets."

come on... 

if any other rapper (except maybe kanye) said that, you'd facepalm. like... you're dissing twitter? you're relating twitter to the hood? what the fuck does this have to do with anything? if wale said that, you'd throw out your ipod.

but since it's jay-z, you're all like

"YEEEEEAAAAHHHHH!!!! 140 CHARACTERS IN THESE STREETS NIGGA!!!!!".

...see what i did there
"You know what the Midwest is?
Young & Restless
Where restless (Niggas) might snatch your necklace
And next these (Niggas) might jack your Lexus
Somebody tell these (Niggas) who Kanye West is"

VS

"i just talked to jesus. 
he said what up yeezus. 
i said nothing chillin. 
tryna stack these millions"

nah, its def a drop in lyrical quality. i mean, Late Registration had songs about how his mom was arrested as a child for racial protesting during the civil rights era.  Yeezus had songs about him getting condoms at 7-11. sure it's "a filler line" but the people who are critical don't believe in filler lines. if you get the chance to have your words heard by millions on millions of people, would you really just throw out some "filler lines"? i feel like late registration kanye was like "nah, every single second on this album has to mean something" while yeezus kanye is like "eh, whatever. it's still gonna be a hit". and some people can notice that difference. 
Jul 17, 2013 @ 06:15
college dropout/late registration kanye is gone. you'll still have glimpses of those lyrics in his songs nowadays, but ever since graduation is been braggadocios shit


But you're sort of right. MBDTF is my fav Ye album and he dropped some shit on there. I feel like that was more of a game changer than Yeezus. There's definitely more unfuckwithable lines on Yeezus, but as far as the overall sound of it, I don't think it's terrible. It's by far not his best, but I think this is gonna be 808s all over again where people are like "wtf" at first and then come around and realize it was pretty great for what it was

People gonna fuck with this because its Ye. People gonna lie and say its the dopest shit but turn around and shit on any other "artsy" or experimental thing any other artist does. People gonna hate it / love it because its on some "NEXT LVL ART TYPE SHIT" but in reality it was halfassed. It was Kanye doing some weird shit because he can. I usually eat weird shit up like bacon n eggs but this didnt do it for me. Everytime i hear its like some FAYKEART faggotry.
Jul 22, 2013 @ 06:35
The video looks like a joke.

That Black Skinhead video had so much potential.

YEEZUS WAS THE BEST KANYE ALBUM OF ALL 2013

the black skinhead video really sucks. that would have been cool circa 1999 but come on. the trailer for Wolf on Wall Street makes for a better video than the actual video.

^wtf is this post about
cliffs:
-a year or so back his friend and himself were creating an EP and art book. "its an experimental ep, real lo-fi and vulgar. essentially about the primal wild nature of human beings, mixed with my interpretations of our comparison to wild animals and false security from the beasts we share earth with. and a few things i'll leave to the imagination"
-his brother passed so he sent an email to one of kanye's reps (i think) saying he could relate to kanye with his mom's passing and sent him some of the artwork and music from the ep and art book hoping kanye would check it out. 
-it got to kanye and he replied to him saying it was dope
-fast forward a year later and yeezus drops and it's VERY similar musically and artistically 

I was skeptical at first but the more i dug into, i'm thinking kanye straight jacked this dudes entire concept

artwork from his EP:











and here's "The Wild EP" in it's entirety. listen to this and tell me it doesn't sound like a less-refined, rawer verison of Yeezus. You can clearly hear eery similarities between this and Yeezus. Like there's things on here that Yeezus clearly got inspired from, stuff Kanye has never fucked with before. I think it's a little more than coincidence.
