Yeezus Is The Christ Of Soul Music…


By now you have listened to the new KanYe West album. If you haven’t I really don’t want to talk to you on this drop so please don’t leave me a comment. As it is I don’t think I can talk about this album with most people since rap fans nowadays aren’t particularly versed in Black music.

The Yeezus album is a tour de force in Black music that has been technofied. Acid Blues. Has anyone ever used that moniker for a musical genre? But it’s not just Blues music on this album. There’s mad Funk going on in this composition. Of course Soul and Rock are getting burn on this disk.

The album is sequenced so that it shakes off the timid Hip-Hop heads early with the experimental soundscape. If you can make it to the end you get the rewards of Kid Cudi and Charlie Wilson’s stirring soulsanging. Most people won’t make it to that point tho’. You’ll be frightened by the frankness of Kanye’s promiscuous content.

My first listens to this album made me reopen my 808s and H3artbr38k files and it was stark to my ears how raw 808s really is. I still love that album but Yeezus is on another level. Another level of production. Another level of sonic sensibility. KanYe West is the GOAT. Hip-Hop is dead like the strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees. Long live Hip-Hop.

    I’m the only commenter? Lol! That Yeezus shit sucked, 808s too.

    there are other examples but Acid Blues = “Maggot Brain” most indomitably though much later Coltrane qualifies as indomitable too.

    In case anyone here is unaware of how George Clinton goaded Eddie Hazel–

    Yeezus is not hip hop. Dunno why people keep saying it is.

    i don’t fuck with yeezus to much just like 808 but i must say i like when a artist makes music for themselves. kanye has been doing that every since he had the chance to be a solo artitst.
