Kanye West - 'Black Skinhead'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.

Kanye West's new album Yeezus drops tomorrow, though it already leaked last week. If you were looking for another College Dropout or even My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, look elsewhere.

Yeezus is a visceral, tribal, rage-filled deconstruction of 'Ye's previous work, as well as modern hip-hop and all its bling-obsessed trappings. Some of it even sounds like industrial rock. It's as radical an album as 808s and Heartbreak was, but in a completely different way.


Say what you want about his ego (it's called Yeezus for crying out loud) or his behavior, but I'm a fan of Kanye West's music, and I think he's kind of a fascinating guy in general. Read his interview in the New York Times to get some insights into this crazy new album. We'll see if the Yeezy faithful embrace it or not, but I think it's worth checking out.

After all - what a friend we have in Yeezus.
