"Yeezus", an album only the so called "God" Kanye West can only pull off in the industry. Let's just say it's Kanye's past album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" on steroids as he fantasizes in a darker realm, that is, his narcissitic mind. If you are looking for old vintage Kanye from "Graduation" or "The College Dropout" then you've come to the wrong place because you've taken the wrong turn awhile back. Egotistical, techno, and fashionista Kanye is the one that embodies this album. West lets you delve into his narrow-minded views are about with politics, race, and religion which can only be relatable to you if you were Kanye West. Ye praises his "own" religion and Yeezus is his bible, it truly expresses the word of Kanye. Although most of us believe Kanye is one crazy motha fucka he is still a gifted producer and rapper that can change the landscape of hip-hop with one song. He may push the boundaries of the genre and others may disagree, but he doesn't give a shit, we are the ones who follow and listen to his crazy ass. Yeezus is a very unusual album but when has the usual ever been linked with Ye, yup you've guessed it, never. Expect the unexpected when you listen to this album, it is almost as aberrant to his newborn's name "North West" now that's what's up (and a little to the left).
