Ye's efforts to keep Yeezus under wraps until it's June 18th release date have been extremely impressive, but the inevitable "leak" has occurred. And the internet has already been set ablaze with people voicing their initial responses. With a range of early-judgements leaning toward "genius" and spanning the spectrum to "pure garbage" with little to no in-between, I'd like to ask the dopeboyz/girlz their thoughts.

    TRASH! GO COP ALBERT EINSTEIN FOR SOME GOOD OL FASHION HARDCORE HIPHOP!!

  • Cramp

    Yessir whatever

  • doc rovers

    Only Bound 2 sounds like an actual song. the rest just sounds like autotune rambling and screaming noise with some random microphone feedback

  • http://twitter@brainiaq9 Dallas

    I have listened to it once all the way through and I can't tell if I like it yet (as odd as that sounds). Definitely "different" but doesn't catch me as having that HEAT yet. Born Sinner is better

  • RealNiggaShitRNS

    This shit is hot garbage... Kanye's musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn't know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it's always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you're good at, but for Kanye that's his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    It's pretty fucking dope. Iono what the fuck it is I'm listening to though.

    Born Sinner is way better. This has at best 4 good songs. Probably the worst collection of music I have heard all year.

  • Henry the bloke

    this website hosts the completely wrong audience for the album. if its not an old Curtis mayfield loop then they ain't interested

    Man this Yeezus so dark. It may take me a couple of days to process it. I appreciate the artistic expression and dedication to being different. Whether or not I will ride to it in a couple of months...I don't know. Like I said...I'm still processing it.

    HOT GARBAGE

  • holdupni66asholduphos

    This album is straight dope. I'm liking 7 out of the album's 10 tracks with Bound 2 as my favorite (Uh huh, honey!). I'm looking forward to the two BONUS tracks that are to be released (we already know Eminem has a credit on the album, perhaps he'll show up?)

  • baunique

    I believe this is the point where ego and creativity interfere with making a quality product and this isn't quality material. Is it horrible? Nah but its far from good. And just because its different, ambitious or bold, doesn't make it good.

  • Kowzic

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he's been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that's what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It's dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it's got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

  • dEt0X2010

    wow this is it? some wack ass techno bs?!
    go cop Born Sinner instead...

  • http://vladtv Stop Dickriding

    I'll slap a Lady Gaga Full length album before i listen to this shitty album again.

    dopeboyz/girlz??? Ain't no females on this website!

    Just hating ass faggots

    • Duce74

      Lmfaoooo. Thats real talk tho

  • Mitch

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr - Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don't think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they'd rate it a 3/10, well I'll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

  • Mitch

    By horrible, I mean J Cole's album COULD have been so much better. Now I see why Nas was disappointed - He (Cole) really isn't anything special

    • Jack Frost

      Ur retarded.

  • ThumbsUp

    It's exactly what Kanye said it would be, something to listen to when you're angry, working out, at work, etc. It's for a hot summer, then he will drop something else new. And all you haters can suck his YET AGAIN (multi) platinum dick

  • Truth or Truth

    An ya'll were so hyped for this lame niggas album do yourself a favor a go cop that Albert Einstein and that The Separation tape

  • coolcat

    Mitch pretty much nailed it

  • MewLover34

    Yeezus > W/e the fuck else your listening to atm. Not sure if you like it? Do you know what kind of music you like? My guess is you don't. It's really not that hard. Amazing album from one of the best artists of our generation, that's about it. Also if you think anything on this is EDM, your a fucking moron. You understand you can make (e)lectronic shit without it being (d)ance (m)usic right? smh, guy above me is right, this record simply aint for this crowd.

  • hahaha

    What was the concept for this album?

    Because to me all i got from this was just someone rambling threw 10songs.

    This album sort off was a generic version of NoYrk & Death Grips

    • derrick

      It's about fighting the syetem, making new sounds like he always do, changing the game, and just raising the bar. It's that I don't give a fuck music

      • Marco

        He doesn't even sound like death grips...at all

  • http://Vladtv Hearbeat Productions

    If this shit is Hot to Yall. I bet yall thought Kevin harts "Frost without you" - was the best R&B yall heard in a min huh?

  • http://ladygreyrecords.com Jimmy

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye...and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808's, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. "I Am God" is a tad cheap and "Send It Up" is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye's best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    • DeEzy

      Jimmy this is the smartest post I ever read on this site. Well done.

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    @ Mitch He disapointed Nas Because he made "Work Out". Nas was mad because he thought J. Cole was too good to be making records like "Work Out". No offense but get the fact correct fam.

  • http://JayDtheprince JayDtheprince

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like "On Site" are not beats that are meant to be rap'd on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

  • http://Vladtv JayDtheprince

    I literally had to listen to Kid Cudis "Man on the moon" album after this so my head would stop hurting lol

  • http://soundcloud.com/joe_smo Joe The Splag King

    "Bound" REALLLLLLYYYYY sounds like Madlib or Roc Marciano. i HATE to sound like that purist. But fuck it. I gotta call a spade a spade. Specially since niggas say Ye is that genius..and rightfully so. But come on man....don't bite from talented underground dudes people probably don't know about...when you have this grand fucking stage for music....just get these dudes in the stu and mesh ideas. Bound brought to mind that Picasso quote "Good Artists copy, Great Artists steal". That's all i have to say so far.

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    @Brian -_- ... Don't be disrespectful.

  • Herpesmonster

    Sorry, all in all not good! Some tracks is good, but then beat changes in them and mostly for the worse. 6/10 fishsticks

  • WHAT!

    "not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success" - quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I'm a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

  • the realest

    808s part two pretty much. But ain't even better than the first

  • http://vladtv Ps4

    Kanye don't give a fuck and this album clearly shows that he really means that.

  • BuckNasty

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don't think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can't accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a 'genius' is how he has managed to release an 'album' with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons' hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    If this is 808's part 2 then where is the heartbreak? This nigga having a baby on the way, still with kim. Wth is heartbreak? lol

  • jobie

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from "black music" to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from "hip-hop heads" are irrelevant.

  • the realest

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success”"

    ^ that's arrogant and selfish as fuck. WE put you on and now you don't care about making music for us anymore bcuz you live in Europe and just dick riding this electronic wave going on. Wow. Okay. Yeah his ego way too big. He not even hip hop no more. Where that jay-z album at. Fuck kanye and anybody that love him.

    Sequels are never better than the fucking first, why do people keep bringing that logic up? Prequels are usually uncut, less successful and more raw. Sequels are generally watered down, but still along the lines..

  • TruthHurtsNigga

    You know the album is wack when you have Kanye apologists coming to the comment section defending the album, looking down their nose saying:

    "Oh of course you don't like it, you aren't intelligent/cultured enough to understand it...."

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn't make it 'good' or 'creative'. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn't, it's rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

  • YEEZUS

    trash, lets bash. Bound 2 is the best one, new slaves beat is nice but then it changes at the end so its trash. LETS PUT KANYE ON A CROSS!!!! to much? sorry

  • http://www.greyareaentertainment.com MASTER crowley

    SAYS HE DOESN'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT ANYTHING
    TOO SCARED OF MEDIA FALLOUT TO NAME SONG "I AM GOD"

    This guy is a living meme of contradiction. Forget him. Music was amazing. Lyrically had no theme and no substance. I've never seen a bigger hypocrite. Am I the only person who noticed how fast he went from "Murder To Excellence" to cosigning Chief Keef?? This guy has no conviction and I just don't fuck with it... But I'm prob just hating cause he got mad money to do whatever the fuck he wanted. I give it a listen for the music but I stay for the content. Won't be getting much play from me. 5/5. Man up, son.

  • BKLYN Kid

    I won't say the album's trash but it's just not for me... sonically, it's too far removed from what I classify as hip-hop. If you're more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it's boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this... too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

  • Gatsby

    My ears were bleeding.. Worst shit ever

    And i loved all his previus work

  • T9FTW

    LISTEN. If you are a strict follower of rap and rap ONLY, you won't like Yeezus. Simple as that.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I'm quite glad that it won't be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. - 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

  • THE STRAPPED HIPSTER

    808s and Heartbreak's evil twin muahahahahahh

  • iAmRafy

    If you listen to this in a car with a system....PSHHHHH Beats are CRAZY, lyrics are dark, This is sorta like a mood musik on steroids. He tried a lot of crazy shit and to me it was well placed, a couple tracks that are over my head, but damn the instrumentals got my subwoofer about to blow.

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    I just don't like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it's not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he's trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don't have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a "chance"

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    I'm on my 3rd listen and it don't sound that horrible. Still think it's his worst in a "Hip Hop" perspective. But if you open ya mind and not go in listening to it as a "Hip Hop" album. It sounds different.

  • Don

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J. Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye's album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Yeezus 7/10.

  • woop

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i'm in it his sex life is pretty Raw ... he don't seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds ...i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know ... he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead... so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

  • JHP

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he's my favorite artist by far, and I've bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye's never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don't hate Yeezus because it doesn't sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don't strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don't care if they're from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn't put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won't happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

  • http://vladtv Black SkinHead

    The album is not horrible. But it's not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i'm having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

  • http://vladtv Black SkinHead

    What is Yeezus about?

  • vre

    album sucks. my head hurt after listening to kanye rap on techno beats from track 1-4. second part of album was ok but album wasnt cohesive at all. don't mind the ratings this album is getting on mags like ny daily news and rolling stone. this album wasn't that good.

  • woop

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

  • http://vladtv Black SkinHead

    I'd have to disagree. I liked "Villuminati" GREAT way to kick off the album, "Land of the snakes" Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. "Rich Niggaz" was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said "Great" i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did'nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i'm imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that's trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does'nt sound like "God" music

  • Blue Man

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

  • Mitch

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed - I've read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop's next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn't live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

  • Mitch

    @JayDthePrince I'm not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn't lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn't completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I'm looking at it

  • NYdreamz

    disappointing.... listened to the album 3 times .... cant see why anybody could praise this weak shit unless they are some serious stans or just trolling... kanye should be ashamed of himself for releasing this wack shit > worst YE project ever...
    had to bump born sinner again because i forgot what good music sounded like for a minute..

  • GOLDCOAST, bitch!

    Don't like the bitching he does, the screaming, the auto tune and at worst the horrible techno beats that switch up at times like he was on acid. Can't rock with this trash. Take his ass out of the mentions of greatest hip hop artists. The most anticipated album of the year is the biggest let down of the century.

  • https://soundcloud.com/reachcloud9 cloud9

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I've listened to the album about five times now and it's just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

  • thereal

    Although this is definitely Kanye's worst album, it is still better than most rappers' (including J. Cole) best stuff.

  • Sammy

    seriously wtf was this? kanye better be punking us with this leak, cause this is dog shit.

  • http://aol.com Z Dub

    Kanye's album isn't trash, but it's not great either.. somewhere in between
    Cole's album there isn't much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik's album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it's frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole's album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that's being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar's GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it's replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye's albums on some "Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son" C'mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

    "Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC." 2012 already, huh?

  • woop

    for me J.cole is for the backpacker what was the game for the Ganster the limit of the "genre" to much name dropping !!! to much i wanna be like jay-z , to much a wanna be like the old kanye west production. J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough...
    i heard some people says yeezus is the worst album of kanye west ... he will be on my ipod longer that 808 that is for shure.

  • b

    ^just because you dont like a particular album or song does not mean its shit or no one else likes it. Each to there own, i been listenin to born sinner and its dope i have listened to it more times then gkmc already. Im sure lot of people will like yeezus more. Moral of the story everyone has different taste.

  • aNdUsAyChIcItY

    @cloud9 this is gonna be a grower album cuz it sounds so radically different, the more you listen to it, different layers will appear. True one cannot judge an album off of just one listen, but 4x and call it garbage? I can't get to 1.5 listens if I really had a strong dislike for it. And my name is And You Say Chi City just crunched up together geez lol.

  • QBN

    @cloud 9, I never said listen to an album only once. Imo, after 2 solid listens, you should have a good sense of whether or not you're feeling an album. What happens is some cats try to CONVINCE themselves that the bs their favorite artist put out is dope.

  • http://gtfoh.com Starks

    What is this?

  • QBN

    @Miso Kendrick's GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn't be considered for last year's Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it's not like the album isn't still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

  • LordDarko

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808's and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole's album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

  • gregory kruxx.

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools...Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site...its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.
    Art at its Finest!!

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success””

    ^ that’s arrogant and selfish as fuck. WE put you on and now you don’t care about making music for us anymore bcuz you live in Europe and just dick riding this electronic wave going on. Wow. Okay. Yeah his ego way too big. He not even hip hop no more. Where that jay-z album at. Fuck kanye and anybody that love him.

    the realest said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    ^^^^^^^^^
    The self entitlement is strong in celebrity culture, jesus christ. WE didn't PUT him anywhere. If HE wasn't TALENTED enough HE wouldn't have production credit on The Blueprint or The Black Album, amongst all the other "Big Name" gigs that HIS hard work went in to.

    HE wouldn't have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn't have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn't have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn't have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of "The Throne".
    He wouldn't have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation....... blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn't make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, ...

    This rant isn't in support of this album, I haven't heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid "WE made you" shit is the only cause for my babbling.
    Anyway, 6/18 support the individuals that have made meaningful impact in your life, whoever it may be. ONE.

    @XI that was a real sensible post bruh.. that's rare around these parts.

    Very nice I like

  • gregory kruxx.

    @XI you said it best man! I said the exact thing to this fuck boy @The Realness, or should we say The Wackness the other day on another Yeezus post. This niggah thinks he's entitled and owed shit...SMH...
    Kanye's talent got him where he is now. And this album really isnt EDM...AND if these clowns really want to go there Electronic music been around forever and alot of early Hip hop was elektro...These fuk niggahs need to do their homework and know their history..And know more about music other than just Hip Hop. Cause comments like Yeezy aint hip Hop no more hahahahahahah...Ye is more Hip Hop than ever..as Hip Hop embodies all music.
    But @Really Does right...A sensible post indeed..
    Man I hate Sheep..

  • illuminatixcobe

    Just gave the Whole joint a spin. It's art. Not mad at it. I think it's gonna do pretty well. I could be wrong. Just reading the comments i think the album serves it's purpose. The best art makes people feel a certain way. It pushes boundries in hop hop. Which is good. But who the fvck really Cares about what i think or anyone else in here........

  • the realest

    ^ this nigga co-signing that shit.

  • Loso

    The musical equivalent of a mental breakdown of an ego-maniacal self proclaimed genius. A fucking masterpiece is what this is!

  • Jamar

    This Album is FUCKIN GREAT!! for anybody who actually knows music and appreciates production. this is the best produced album since Tyler the Creators. U just gotta open your mind and intake the futuristic sounds..

  • dropdat

    sounds rushed..du makes alot of music..his worst work but not complete garbage..expect something else much better later this year *hopefully
    6/10

  • ear2ear

    Born Sinner = NyQuil
    Yeezus = LSD

  • the realest

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep "pushing the boundaries" on every album. Especially when it's not good. And especially when it's being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As "pop art", some lane kanye created, it ain't better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he's fallen off.

  • http://twitter b

    this is top 5 worst albums I've ever heard. not a hater love all of kanyes discography but idk where he was trying to go with it... i almost feel like its a joke no way he can think its good he just picked the shittys beats wack verses and put out a album with no artwork and see how much money he could make... but watch him still win the grammy for this trash of an album

  • dugan

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it's suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something. These stans are making excuses but at the end of the day look at the dops to nopes and tell me if kanye got the same ration compared to his previous work?

  • PAC Risen

    I'll take that NyQuil over LSD any day of the week.

  • gregory kruxx.

    Ahh some real music heads on here and not just dudes that only listen to the same ol same ol everyday,, thank god!!! there are other people that know music on here...And when I say this I mean really knowing music really really fukin knowing music in general ...You dont have to like it. But you should respect it. Just cause you dont like it means that the artist is wack now and that they owe you and left hip hop and all this other negative immature shit i be reading on here...sum of u niggahs must be 12 yrs old on here im convinced. Niggahs need sum edumacation on here lololllll...clown ass niggahs...

  • gregory kruxx.

    @dugan ur ignorant. music is art...kill urself

  • heyyyyyaaaa

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

  • PAC Risen

    Kanye dickrickers are out in full force trying to defend this garbage with every excuse in the book. Nobody owes anybody any respect. Chill with that shit. And niggaz on here IS voicing their opinion. It may not be what a lot of stans like but again it's excuse after excuse for this shit. Someone on here said it best, "the most anticipated album of the year and it is the biggest let down of the century".

  • dugan

    @gregory kunt, Music is a form of expression not art dumb ass. Stop with all that dick sucking.

  • DISNIQQA

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye's all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

  • gregory kruxx.

    @Dugan Guess u need sum edumacation there fuck boy.. or u need to think before you speak..I always thought art was expression...This dude really just said music is a form of expression not art...OMFG!!!
    Then why do all the dudes you listen to call themselves artists who express through music...your one of those dudes that should get slapped for the fuck of it...too bad this is the internet though..man comments like that make me realize why 90 percent of this country is completely stupid and as I always say if it didnt weigh on my conscious or I wasnt going to get locked up for Id kill people like you. Moron. LOL
    Aint not dickriding either. Just got my eyes and ears open...but again its all about your taste..sumthns truly wrong with people.learn to read.

  • Loso

    Majority of comments coming from people mention "failed expectations" based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn't simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

  • marty mcfly

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they've already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he's known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin - He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

  • dugan

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn't change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don't expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won't work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye's dick out of your mouth gregory.

  • Code

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I've accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I'm gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

  • J.Simon

    It's not wack!!!!!! Nigga's iz HAT'IN

  • rougestoner420

    The album was ill different type of Yay but very Ill

  • quicyWASmyNAME

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn't deliver.

  • gregory kruxx.

    @Fugan Homo...Again you obviously didn't read what I said. And if you would like me to whip out all my degrees and get back to good ol proper grammar for you you can kiss my ass this is a blog. I didnt realize I was back in school typing an essay. Do I need a thesis statement as well when addressing you and discussing subject matter. I was being quite facetious if you didnt pick up on it.
    You funny. Saying try put your hands on me...Man read and think before you speak fugan dumb ass niggah..you funny.
    This dude actually took what I said literally and out of context again...gettin all defensive and shit u funny..sensitive ass girl.

  • http://vladtv JayDthePrince

    Sometimes you have people that won't accept CRAP from a high class/Grad A artist like Kanye. And some are just gonna love any and everything he does and say it's innovative. Bruh could have made a collaborative ALBUM WITH Brittany Spears and they would have praised him for it.

  • quicyWASmyNAME

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don't forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya'll are big kanye fans but ya'll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

  • dugan

    @gregory kunt, you completely stepped away from the topic at hand to talk nonsense. There is no longer a need to carry on with you anymore.

  • Code

    Not.on crack at all..that's the fucking problem.You grading him on shit.that rappers do. Nigga transcends this shit as much artistically as HIV did Business wise.

  • http://jmths.wordpress.com DNLTLK

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He's been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn't necessarily made for you.

    He's proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren't you? It's like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three's? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won't like the album will make him try it again, and make it "better."

    In other words if people say they like it -- he probably won't do it again, because he's that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I'd give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

    Kayne made this shit for punk anti-establishment kids. Every album he expands his fan base. This shit wasn't for "us" . Y'all want that nigga shit you use to. He's still.giving it at a high.class. I think its ok. Considering his catalogue is near perfect I think ppl should chill.

  • j

    how is this advancing the culture or music with this? im not saying that it has to but im seeing alot of mentioning like i is..i love all kanyes music (like the album) and will never doubt this cat but im not seeing how u can say that hes doing something that is setting new waves or is soo incredible w this album...granted weve only had it for a minute and has he cobained our minds before, absolutely, and hell probably do it again, his premiering music and some of the sounds for this album were innovative...however he jumped on a wave that was already there and added his flavor (personification,puns,wit) and a few spices we know him for..im jus sayin as far as this album being profound, its not. same ish about his sex/fashion/hate..maybe the album isnt suppose to be profound and many just expect, he made us expect that from him tho

    If you like shallow lyrics and techno beats then this is the album for you. I only fuck with Blood on the Leaves. The beat is hard I can't lie

I'll wait...

  • marty mcfly

    And for people talking about they dont like the album? From your standpoint there's no where to go with your opinion. You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

  • Born Sinner

    @ marty mcfly see "Born Sinner"

  • j

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that "haven't been used" in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward...mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

  • TheJacka

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being "different" and more "creative" GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn't care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

  • marty mcfly

    @Born Sinner, umm NO fuckin Rockie Fresh is pushing culture in production far more then J Cole but again I dont hear another Yeezus out there.

  • marty mcfly

    @ J, "what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past"? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he's one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    "On site" = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    "Black SkinHeads" = Great song. Very innovative! (A++)

    "I am a GOD" = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it's potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    "New Slaves" = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    "Hold My Liquor" = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It's listenable. (D)

    "I'm in It" = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don't sound good on this (D)

    "Blood On the Leaves" = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I'll fucks with it (A++)

    "Guilt Trip" = Horrible (F-)

    "Send it Up" = Horrible (F-)

    "Bound" = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

  • marty mcfly

    Fucking Mac Miller got better production and more creativity then J Cole. Watching Movies destroys Born Sinner.

  • marty mcfly

    JayDtheprince, you said early that the shit was wack and I believe you was saying the whole album so if you think its wack from top to bottom just stay with that. You giving shit A pluses and Bs now. Come on fool you said (or implied man times) the album was wack period or the album was like thee worst music ever created so dont switch up now just hate cause thats how you started.

  • marty mcfly

    or implied manY times...

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    @Marty I'm saying it's wack because i have to press the skip button.... alooooooooot. I still don't like it as a "Whole" after (3 listens) I gave it a fucking chance bro. I'll even slap the songs i like in the future. But the majority of this album is not it playboi and you know it

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    @Marty Mcfly What i wanna ask you though. Since you think BORN SINNER is horrible. What work FROM J. COLE Do you like?

    ____________________________________________________________________

    This will let me know if your a critic or if you just flat out don't like j. cole and just bash everything he does.

  • marty mcfly

    @ JayDtheprince so its wack right, you gave it a 3/10 so its wack right so ok then. In your opinion its wack so we get it. Thanks

  • j

    mcfly I agree that the projections were brilliant, thats why i said so in my first post. All im saying is that i expected more and maybe thats my fault. I see what hes doing and i understand it but i am sick of the subject matter. it seems that hes in a meltdown state and if this is the expression of that il ride w it caz thats life i just dont beleive that its groundbreaking.. its funny to expect that on every album of an artist but many do it..there will prob be sum later this year that makes me swallow my wordds but this album is not it..my opinion

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    @Marty Mcfly You know it's wack too. You just wanna believe that it's better than born sinner and it ain't. Your on an Island! With 12 other kanye lovers with this one! .. Majority Rules..

  • Born Sinner

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is "Poppin" or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn't pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He's pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

  • i

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i'ght ima put out a album.' Then 3 weeks before its due hes like 'fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.' Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    And you did'nt answer my question about j cole. Which means your just a Cole HATER .. HATER! lol

  • marty mcfly

    @ JayDtheprince, the songs I like from J Cole, I spoke about when they came out. When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out... When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you've said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

  • marty mcfly

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

  • TheJacka

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren't going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don't know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

  • fuqoutaheere

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye's produced electric beats weren't as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

  • Sosa

    Everyone has to stop comparing born sinner with yeezus ... Two different albums that took different approaches. J cole did his thing but so did Ye. Put all of kanyes albums on shuffle and you will have the most diverse and best music that any artist could ever compare to

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    @ I LMFAOO .. I swear that's how it feels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Like he just rushed this shit B. He Made a couple far fetched techno tunes. Project "New Slaves" Tweeted "June 18" and here we have it.
    YEEZUS!

    No effort at all. Just thru it out and the stans are eating this shit up

  • GOD

    YEEZUS got played in FULL in Milwaukee at a PRIVATE BAR, dude hired wrong attorneys. He never got proper permits and got shut down nation WIDE. He needs lawyers who care about him and not his money he can pay. 1/10 of what he pays lawyers, and, as a registered and legalized attorney, i would've got that BLASTED the WAY he INTENDED

  • Born Sinner

    @ marty mcfly if you listen to James blake's new album, youd be surprised at how much it sounds like kanye bit this dude's swag. If you are actually a listener of music. that is.

  • marty mcfly

    In My opinion an album that pushes culture forward with a new approach and sound in most cases will always be better then predictable production, boring, cliche topics and regular ol sounding commercialized watered down soft sounding, horrible singing, making terrible raps over classic samples, with very little creativity or dynamic musicality. Watching Movies With The Sound Off makes Born Sinner sound like below average elevator music.

  • BruhBruh

    @Martymcfly and @Born Sinner Both of you are one sided so il be the middle. I like both these niggas, they both make dope music but for me idk they kinda the saame for me. I was dissapointed wit both and i been rocking wit these niggas for a while. Like, Coles album was iite, some of those songs were wack, some were iite, nothing crazy. I give that shit like a 7/10. ////Yeezus was iite too. we all know this nigga tryna 'push boundaries' and bullshit and hes been off that tru hip hop shit for a minute now, so you just gotta take the shit for wat it is. Some of the songs be made bump, some of the others are just 2 much and there wack. he spit some dope shit but most of it bullshit, idk i give it a 7/10 too. If yall made me choose tho, between the 2 id prob say Yezzus just cuz the nigga went out of the box for it.

  • marty mcfly

    @Born Sinner, ok but James Blake is in a different position then Kanye so regardless of the music Kanye's album is more impactful to the culture. Now some may think its unfair but as of right now you dont hear no albums like Yeezus in MAINSTREAM hip hop. The album is on its own kinda thing in THAT arena.

  • http://vladtv Huey

    This album is so inconsistent and un-inspired.

    5/10

  • ear2ear

    "Born Sinner" and "Yeezus" are literally the exact opposite albums of each other. I'll take "Yeezus" over "Born Sinner" purely because its more interesting in my opinion. "Born Sinner" sounds like a bad uninspired cover of all my favorite MCs wrapped into one. "Yeezus" has some terrible moments as well but at least when things came together here and there it sounded fresh. "Born Sinner" was generic, formulaic, conservative. "Yeezus" was pretentious, inconsistent, uncohesive, and ambitious. Neither lived up to the hype.

  • Born Sinner

    true, thats true. but when do you draw the line between making a great product, and then doing something that other people wont do just for something thats very close to shock value? I mean a lot of what kanye does , he's able to get away with it because of his first three records. point blank period.

  • zeeko

    Born Sinner is the shit . YEEZUS was so vauge and it didn't live up to the hype .I think Kanye was to trying to perfect the album so much , he fucked it up ..

  • http://vladtv JayDtheprince

    This album is un-inspired and that also shows. At least we knew WHY he was taking the direction he took on 808's seeing as he lost his moms (R.I.P) . That's why it's one of my favs. BUT THIS just seems like a BIG ... "Fuck all Yall niggas" .. Like he don't care about his fans. It's upsetting, really...

  • marty mcfly

    You could call it "shock value" but I dont think Kanye is doing that just to make people pay attention. I think in his heart he wants to sound the way he does just for him and his art first and id rather have a little shock value involved then no shock at all. I swear on everything that Cole's album was almost exactly how I thought it would sound. I knew it would be mellow and damn near depressing sounding and it would be him going back in forth about his relationships and dealing with his success and I even thought to myself, I bet this guy gonna sample some classic shit and then put some generic hook on it and also be singing horrible melodies over shit he has no business singing on. I swear I thought that just based on what he always does and when I heard the album its exactly what I thought it would sound like. So in very predictable cases like that I much rather prefer a little shock value vs no shock or surprises at all.

  • marty mcfly

    If you gonna act like -

    Black Skinheads
    I Am A God
    New Slaves
    Hold My Liquor
    Bound

    aint dope then you frontin like a mothafucka and some elements of Blood On The Leaves and Send It Up (just cause this song is gonna smash clubs into pieces when its played) are dope too but the first five are dope and nothing Cole did on Born Sinner besides maybe Villuminati can fuck with those songs PERIOD. Im gone, let the hate continue...

  • will

    marty do you have a job, I see you on this shit every single post I check writing novels. no one gives a chit bout your opinion.

    yes, yeezus is different, and Kanye is trying to do new things. doesn't mean it's good. it's trash.

    Just listened to the first half of Macs album before I got bored and switched to something else. Will finish it later. Haven't really been following or listening to Mac since KIDS (one of my favourite mixtapes of any artists) so wasn't sure what to expect. meh so far. hopefully it turns around.

    Born Sinner is dope. Period.

  • JB

    This album is basically an evolution of his music. I hear a piece of each album in all 10 songs. Take it for what it's worth. This album is theme music for the creative minds who require a mix of all music genres. It's punk rock, electro, soul, and hip hop worked into one piece. I'm a fan of 7/10 tracks. I give the album a B+

  • Joe

    BruhBruh had the best comment in the c section so far...imo

    On Sight - F (pure garbage)
    Black Skinhead - C (not feelin it at all, can see the appeal tho so sure)
    I Am A God - D (c'mon kanye....)
    New Slaves - C (same deal as Black Skinhead)
    Hold My Liquor - C+ (first half not bad, second part trash, auto tune no thanks)
    I'm In It - F (pure garbage)
    Blood On The Leaves - B (could be so much better if the autotune shit was cut and changed, totally unnecessary)
    Guilt Trip - F (garbage)
    Send It Up - F (garbage)
    Bound - C+ (could be so much better)

    overall, I give it a 3/10. Next.

    Hopefully Kanye's just fuking with us and in a couple months puts out a real hip hop album.

This nigga is a confused, psychotic, schizophrenic, possessed, homosexual, drug addicted, money worshipping, blasphemous, overrated man making music. Nothing more than that. & Yall legit idolize this nigga? Lol. Ever since his mom passed money, sex & drugs took over the nigga & the quality of his music has been declining. You can't listen to this and not hear a nigga who is crying for attention. Got no respect for that, or him.

  • fortiesandbluntskid

    I like the album. I think it's a good album. There was no song that I couldn't stand and there were a couple really dope joints (I HATED Black Skinheads when I first heard it on SNL, but I fucks with it now, New Slaves is dope as fuck, Blood On The Leaves is dope, Bound 2 is very, very dope). With that said, I don't think it has longveity, it sounds like an album that gets tedious after you listen to it 20 times, AND I hope that hip-hop doesn't go in this direction. Let Kanye do him, don't try to imitate him because this is the kind of sound that is dope because it's fresh(ish). If people imitate this... Let's say I'll stick to my old shit.

  • Jason Pack

    Kanye West has numerous Grammy awards and hip hop legend features on previous albums. So for a lot of you to think you guys have a better taste in music or ear for "good" music than he does is just foolish. The man deserves to be content if he wants to, but thing is he really isn't. He makes music out of what 'he feels' not you ignorant fucks. He's working with iconic producers and engineers. Lots of artists call him a genius. Come on, is he really that bad, or do you guys just have an acquired taste for music? Because there's so many dismissive comments coming from people who think they know it all. Keep an open mind and appreciate the entertainment, the service Kanye provides by entertaining. I personally think the album is GREAT. I can't tell an artist what to create because who am I to do so? I just listen to whatever they bring to the table and enjoy it if it took hard work and dedication to develop. Or at least skill/talent.

    Btw "kingjojo" I kind of agree with you on the part where you label Kanye. I don't agree with labeling him, but I do believe he is most of what you say he is, but that's what makes him who he is and it comes out in the music. Institutions and "experts" make labels to describe "personality disorders". What are those without a label or title? Nothing if you're still functioning.

  • poopoohead

    I like how Marty demands that someone name an album similar to Yeezus, so someone does, and then he dismisses it as "Well Kanye has a bigger stage so that doesn't count".

  • wuz

    My greatest sin about this project was expectation. Damn!

    Granted, this album aint for conservative hiphop heads but sumfin tells me it's a future classic, maybe we haven't evolved far enuff to understand it.

    thought you said you were gone? Guess not...you can't seem to let this website go.

    My point is that you asked for someone to name something with the same elements, someone did, and you dismissed it. Is it "hip-hop"? No, but the new Kanye album ain't strictly hip-hop either. And as far as the "mainstream" shit goes, Kanye said himself he didn't make this for mainstream. Fuck are you getting at? Seems as though you can't accept other people's opinions as usual.

  • marty mcfly

    @poopoohead, I said "@Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?" I said the 2nd sentence for a reason, to specific that Yeezus will be followed by this genre of HIP HOP... James Blake doesn't qualify if he has little to new impact on hip hop music.

  • marty mcfly

    little to NO impact on hip hop music. The fact is right now at this moment in time Yeezus is the only mainstream album that most mainstream fans know of that contains this amount of creativity a raw energy on one album.

  • poopoohead

    @marty
    Don't act like other music doesn't have an impact on hip-hop. You're acting like hip-hop is mutually exclusive.

    Best track (Production): Blood On The Leaves (Hudson Mohawke's horns. that is all)
    Best track (Content): I'm In It (the true artistic progression of what Lil Wayne should've become. The best (or at least the most progressive) song about sex and pussy I may have ever heard. Completely invalidates the existence of IANAHB2)
    Honorable Mention: Hold My Liquor (the first time I've listened to Keef without wanting to strangle myself)

  • poopoohead

    @marty
    Once again, he said that the album isn't meant for the mainstream.

    With that said, I actually like Yeezus. However, you seem to get mad at people who have a different opinion than you. Your comments towards other people have a condescending tone to them. You act like your opinion is superior to their opinion. This is magnified because of the sheer amount of posts you dedicate to devaluing other people's choices. If they bash your opinion...what does it matter?

    Yeezus fire. Travi$ Scott was right. Kanye is way ahead of his time. These electro beats are fire. But aye, not everybody is going to like it. I mean there is a lot of close minded hiphop fans around and they are not going to like the album. It is what it is. Alotta people hated on 808's and Heartbreaks too, but fact is it had impact on hip-hop, and Kanye was doing shit rappers went to do years later. Album got some serious bangers. Send It Up is the weakest track on the album though. Production wise the album is also on another level. Beats are 8-10. Lyrics 7-10. Good album imo.

  • gregory kruxx.

    @JayDtheprince Theres nothing wrong at all. Alot of people like it alot of people dnt..Its not for everybody. He stated that the Chicago House Scene had a huge inspiration on him when making this record that should say enough about the overall direction for it. I think its funny people shit on this just because its different. The Production is krazy. The lyrics could be better at points but he also wrote it quickly. This is what he wanted. This isn't a traditional hip hop album. Its not for everybody. At the end of the day although many do not like it it seems more people still marked it as dope...so alot do like it as well
    Its music and theres only opinion when listening no facts.

    The more I listen to the album the less I like some of the production. I do wish that Ye would have used more of his traditional soulful production.

    Dope. Constantly pushing the envelope. No one else has the balls / ability to smash their whole style and reinvent themselves over and over again. All may not like it cuz you may be a fan of his other iterations but godamn, who has the balls to completely tear down their sound and rebuild over and over again. man is brilliant. And as evidenced by the way New Slaves ends with the sample flip AND Bound 2 - he could go back and drop an album of soul joints in his old style and destroy the game at ANY TIME he wanted to. Commend this man. He's a true artist.

  • GOD SPEAKS YOU LISTEN

    I remember when cats were talking shit about Cudi's album and how he needed kanye's production skills and then here we are and kanye releases this. Oh, how the tables have turned. This sounds like an extension of Cudi's sound with techno added, sprinkled with a llittle soul loops. Exec Produced by Rick Rubin. What a damn shame. This is not a hip hop album not in any form is it or can it be. It is house music.

    Kanye himelf said, "It's like trap and drill and house. I knew that I wanted to have a deep Chicago influence on this album, and I would listen to like, old Chicago house music. I think that even 'Black Skinhead' could border on house, 'On Sight' sounds like acid house, and then 'I Am a God' obviously sounds, like, super house.

    No I.D. only partly produced one record and that is Bound. he probably did the soul loop in that song because everybody else are just techno house producers. If that is your cup of tea then fine but if you like hip hop this is not for you. Even if you like when hip hop pushes boundaries by incorporating other genres but still remaining rooted in hip hop this is not for you. Kanye is considered a hip hop artist but this album is not hip hop. There is no lyricism and it is just sound heavy. Just exactly how house music is. Hip hop in it's purest form always is lyrical it's what separates it from a lot of other genres. There's substance house music is not. Chicago house music and house music is dance music. Lyrics are always drowned out. Put this album where it belongs in the dance house techno section because it is not hip hop.

    @cloud9 I get where your coming from but honestly man. I dnt think Kanye tried to be different, he just decided to make something different..He had some ideas and he ran with them. And saying it didnt work out in his favor is a lil bit premeditated. It didnt even officially drop yet. Theres still millions of people who have not heard it yet and whether you like it or not thats the size of his audience now millions upon millions.
    If anything it did work out in his favor cause although its pretty split in terms of opinions he still has as many people who like it if not more check the dope stats and at the end of the day I dont think he really cares anymore..
    So he loses some fans. He will probably gain some new ones too.
    And when he drops another album although you dont like this one he will probably have everybody right back waiting to check for it...

    Remember Ye was never ever really the normal mc/producer he's always been on another planet. He's in that Andre 3 stacks category..

    To each his own though

  • niggaman

    fucking horrible album kanye = garbage

  • trash

    This is pure garbage but since he is on a major label mags will say its a masterpiece . 3 songs are autotunes so i cant fuck with those, dr suess simple rimes, on sight not even long enough and the last track a sample that large professor killed 4 years ago on bowne. Ye says there is no marketing which is a lie every from the c.d not.having a insert jacket, the tittle yeesus to having rick work on the project was marketing. This culture is over and done with because of egos like his. Hip hop needed a soild release to maintain its respect and instead this clown is competing with himself. Shaking my head he a couple others are thr only ones popular enough to put the culture on their backs and they wont do it and give back to the culture that made them rich. Smh

  • real talk

    my theory is that this isn't the mastered version on the album. I think when June 18th comes there will be a HOPEFULLY better version.

  • Billy

    The album is great. I'm glad people like Kanye are pushing hip hop forward. Most people probably don't like it because they're afraid things that are different.

  • CAPS

    THE PROBLEM WIT MOST OF THE NIGGAS ON HERE IS THAT THEY WANT THAT 04-05' YEEZY BACK. THAT NIGGA IS LONG GONE. YA'LL GOTTA TAKE THE MUSIC FOR WHAT IT IS.

I THOUGHT THIS SHIT WAS JUST IIITE, HE TRIED THE TECHNO BEATS IT WORK FOR SOME BUT THIS NIQQA IS STILL THE SAMPLE KING, YOU CANT DENY THAT. SHITS A 7/10 B.

    With that said, I actually like Yeezus. However, you seem to get mad at people who have a different opinion than you. Your comments towards other people have a condescending tone to them. You act like your opinion is superior to their opinion. This is magnified because of the sheer amount of posts you dedicate to devaluing other people’s choices"

    Lol.. cats are so heated. It's like a fkn civil war if you like/don't like this Yeezus album. To me it's kind of a letdown, not trash, but not really focused or even close to a classic. I give it 6 outta 10. I just gotta say at the end of the day the music gotta be DOPE. Stop giving credit just cuz a dude did something "different". Not everything different or out the box turns out to be good music. Every great artist has their share of flops, Yeezus MIGHT be one of them, but time will tell.

  • Master El

    What I grasp out of all of this is the short memory span many a listener who are either for or against this LP. I think if we all dig real deep we can all call at least 10 Hip hop albums released in the past year that were as experimental or even more so than this piece AND they did it more cohesively (Bigg Jus, Thavius Beck,El-P,Roots Manuva etc). Is it all about marketing and strategic coordination nowadays? I think alot of black artist are picking up bad habits in them poser art collector fashion circles they mingle in. Funk was futuristic from the start and so is the dynamic of hip hop being the son of that, it's waay to young to be passé and that's the pretention I find within the extreme change in direction particularly in the case of this piece of work- and I support being challenged as a listener ,but I know when I'm being blagged though!Mikkey Halsted,Vakil, Tomorrow Kings , GLC, Crucial Con , Twista, Fest and Lupe on a collossal posse cut after Bound 2 now that would of been something to make the project redeemable.Chuuch

  • YeezusdontPleaseUs

    I like some of the album's productions, but otherwise I think the album is trash.

    Kanye is wack af now. Blame it on Kim.

  • The Real TC

    It's nice to see kanye do something different and it's definitely different when you compare it to the rest of the stale landscape of Pop music, but as far as the overall music goes, every single song on there can be sourced back to songs that came before them and most have the ideas that are on the album have already been done better.
    Most of the album is reminiscent of Death Grips and Marilyn Manson, with some of it reminding me of P.O.S.'s last album, but all of it was done better by those other artists because of their execution and the fact that they sounded more sincere.

    Every time I felt like something dope was being presented, Ye fucked it up with either the lyrics, the pseudo-tribal scream thing, or the unnecessary auto-tune.

  • http://www.soundclick.com/blett B_Lett

    I'm going to give Watching Movies with the Sound Off a chance, even though I never really cared for Mac Miller. In my opinion, J Cole's, or should I say Ye Cole's Born Sinner was overall better than Yeezus. While I don't think Cole had any tracks that stand out as much as Black Skinheads or New Slaves, I do think that he had more substance and production value per track. I think some of you need to relisten to Let Nas Down, Born Sinner, Trouble, and Villuminati on Cole's album. J. Cole rapping over improvised saxophone and bringing back Jazz to hip hop. That isn't refreshing to hear? As an electronic and futuristic producer myself, I didn't think Kanye's album was all that progressive. It's pretty boring compared to most dubstep. Can't tell you how many producers use distorted 808s these days. When it comes to hip hop, J Cole actually had the more fresh album. That's just my opinion.

  • http://www.greyareaentertainment.com MASTER crowley

    Kanye really likes to jack the vibe of his newest signee, huh? I mean Owl Pharaoh was not good by any means but it sounded just like Yeezus. No one noticed that Owl Pharaoh got pushed back until right after New Slaves finally dropped?

    By far the worst K. West album, where's 50 when you need em! Haha

  • http://www.soundclick.com/blett B_Lett

    I do have to add that Kanye made a song with Chief Keef that isn't completely horrible. So that is a feat within itself. However, to go off of what MASTER crowley said, you can definitely hear how other artists' vibes rub off on Kanye. On Hold My Liquor, you hear that Kid Cudi, Ratatat sound. The Guilt Trip song almost sounds more like a Cudi song than a Kanye song. Was that a Fly Like an Eagle sample with the trippy rising synths?

    @MASTER crowley

    nigga got a point there.

    after another day to listen the shit aint that bad. still way too short. had to not look at it as a rap album and as a pop. the nigga tryna win a grammy it seems like. definitly his worst album tho. but even kanyes worst is still pretty decent. bound 2 was the standout track and was a relief by the time i got to end of the album. he sure did save the best for last. imagine if the whole album sounded like that. or atleast 5 more records like it just for balance. and the production was dope but too much at times. i thought he was suppose to be minimalizing on this album. all he minimalized was the amount of songs. music is suppose to take you on a ride but this shit is like them janky rides that give you whiplash and shit. and all that uneccesary screaming was just uneccesary. like on site. that shit was uneccessary to. overall i give it like a 6/7.

  • marty mcfly

    poopoohead, “Once again, he said that the album isn’t meant for the mainstream".

    Kanye doesn't have a choice but to be mainstream whether he likes it or not. There is no hip hop fan alive he doesn't know the name Kanye West you idiot and imo im glad he is playing his position and pushing creativity instead of making generic bullshit like this - Got me up all night, all I'm singing is love songs
    She got me up all night, constant drinking and love songs
    She got me up all night, down and out with these love songs
    She got me up all night, drown it out with these love songs

    LOL I'm the idiot...right. After seeing you whine and bitch on this site for like years with weak ass arguments, I'M the idiot. Sure.

    So you must consider Snoop's reggae album hip-hop too right? As well as Wayne's Rebirth? Since everyone knows their name that automatically makes them "mainstream" hip-hop albums...right? Even though they stated, and it's understood that they're not mainstream hip-hop albums. Seeing you use such favoritism and confirmation bias to defend your choices IS hilarious though.

    Good job ignoring the rest of my comment too...you're very good at doing that. Instead, you chose to prove my point for me by interjecting your own random condescending opinion for no fucking reason...I never said a word about Cole or Mac Miller. But please do continue on slapping your keyboard and acting like if people don't agree with you, they're idiots. That'll definitely make us value your opinion.

  • http://vladtv N.E.R.D

    I've listened to this so many times. And this album is about nothing at all. His latest work have been about nothing at all though. He just puts fresh songs on it. At least born sinner has a meaning, i mean sure this album has fresh songs but cole wins by far concept wise. Kanye is'nt inspired to make music and that shows why he only produced ONE SONG on this whole album.

  • YA BOY AKA LIFE!!

  • HateMyOPinon

    Ight, so you niggas gotta look at it from this perspective.......This nigga Kanye now considers his music to be like high fine art. Like, i feel like when this nigga makes music he thinks hes like making a painting. So this nigga is just going about it from and artistic standpoint. Like, people find certain painters and sculptures unique cuz of a certain style they bring that no one else uses and makes it their own. Like youve seen paintings that are considereed art, sometimes their just shapes and shit its not necessarily good but from an artistic standpoint it is. So in this case, the music might not be that good but hes not even going for that. Hes going for shit youve never heard before. Thats why the critics are eatin this shit up. Its not a rap album its a art album.

    7/10 for me tho. lol

  • poopoohead

    @marty
    Also, for someone who hates Cole so much (and makes it a point to put people down just because they like him) you seem to know the lyrics pretty well!

  • Jus10

    PUKE!! I really thought his solo albums would always be better than the group / collabo albums. I can see why Common left the label (which now I'm looking for the next Com' project). Mos Def better bounce before the same thing happen to him.

    Maybe all this "hatred" is seems wrong, but I stood by him with MBDTF. And I thought THAT was the weak point! The most fucked up part about all this is not matter the reception, he's going to continue on this Bullshit path. If we embrace this crap, he gives us more, he we refute it, he thinks we're hating AND GIVES US MORE! wtf?

  • ear2ear

    funny how the critics/newspapers so far have all really praised this album...I haven't seen anything lower than a score of 80. And it is not because he's on a major. I was surprised thought the ratings would be very diverse. I think it'll be right around 70 for me. the album has grown on me, but some parts still remain a bit too indulgent and self serving for me to ever like. On "New Slaves" when the track switches to that soul sound, it's almost as if Kanye couldn't help himself but to auto tune sing out of place when it sounded much better to just let Frank Ocean do the crooning. Instead you have a crooner being overshadowed by the autotune that sounds bad over that kind of beat. He just seems to get in his own way at times. I think that sums up the flaws of the album. Indulgent. Way too much autotune on Blood on the Leaves that kills the steam of the song. The beat switch on Bound for Charlie Wilson is a little weird as well. There are just moments that kill the song's momentum throughout the album. But Kanye's entitled to make a left field indulgent album. It's not as bad as people in the c-section are making it out to be but it's not as impactful as the homie marty is making it out to be either. It's just ambitious and interesting. And in some spots that leads to a great song others it leads to the skip button. I was hooping with it on and it really sounded better in that setting. To be honest, we all know Kanye could make a "Born Sinner" sounding album in his sleep as could a lot of others.

  • Jus10

    Let me correct my last 2 sentences

    Didn't produce a single track and most likely ghost written bars.

    Great Executive Producer credit for Kanye at best.

    It's obvious to me, from the first listen, this is more of an Executive album then a personal album from Kanye.

    For every rich and famous Black Man, there's an even more rich and more famous White man. In this case it's many different White men and mostly Rock musicians. Namely the White man behind this Project is the Great Rick Rubin.

  • TheJacka

    I like Daft Punk including other artists from numerous genres but the difference is their albums are cohesive and have a direction. This Yeezus shit is all over the place, screaming on tracks, auto tune here, soul there, electro here and stuff that just doesn't fit. And then the album name Yeezus doesn't fit in all but Kanye tried to force the issue with putting a feature by "God" on the album and a couple bars about him talking to Him. C'mon man, cut the bullshit. It's okay to say Kanye didn't make a good album, you can still be a fan but not like things the artist makes

  • nigga pleezus

    The sad thing about all this, is the whole game is fucked up. We're on the internet, and large choices of music still doesn't move well enough, so people are essentially only talking about kanye, cole, and mac miller.. The fact is there's a public enemy nwa type album in the cut somewhere waiting to be heard.

    The problem is the game went from labels to blogs. That was good for a moment, until the blogs turned into the new labels, and now the channels are clogged again. The blogs are acting under the guise that "you too can get your music on our blog", but that's bullshit, it's working on payola and relationships like the radio.

    When a true social platform appears and distributes music without any 3rd party involvement, then music will start to get good again, and even be profitable over time. We are currently in some political "pick the lesser of the evils" stance regarding these artists.

    It's kind of hard to see dudes talking about artists like CNN talks about presidential candidates. Three OK artists that are really too big to be where they're at (excluding kanye, but he's lost it), not hungry enough and completely out of touch with what people need.

    And then the other artists thirsty enough to spam their wack trap shit on datpiff and other sites only further make everyone feel like the shit these "major label" blogs feature are really the BEST shit in the game.

    People rarely think about the artists in between a rock and a hard place. Doper than what is being featured, but not thirsty enough to put their classic albums on crabs in a barrel sites like soundcloud, datpiff, and live mixtape. I think the answer is around the corner, but that's something for you to think about.

    As for Yeezus... Ye's been eating too many snails and his idea of fancy is what a typical nigga would think; white washed, abrasive, soulless type of music. I listen to early industrial (that's actually funky compared to yeezus) and all types of bugged out shit. This aint bugged out, this is contrived. We're witnessing a man who's lost it, and probably has no good people with his best intentions in his corner. Kim K is his child's mother. He's on the dark side now.

    I really suggest you pop on "it takes a nation" and RE-LISTEN for real, don't be like "i heard it" listen to it again. That energy they caught on that album isn't "OLD SCHOOL", that's RAP, and that vibe doesn't have an age. It aint about going back in time, it's about understanding what REAL energy is about.

    As soon as niggas get back to the basics, funky loops, funky rhymes, and really talking about shit, then things will get better. The funny thing is, there's so much shit going on like PRISM, and all types of declassified info that rappers can be tapping into to artistically address.

    Prayers for kanye, this is sad.

    As soon as niggas get back to the basics, funky loops, funky rhymes, and really talking about shit, then things will get better. The funny thing is, there’s so much shit going on like PRISM, and all types of declassified info that rappers can be tapping into to artistically address.

    Prayers for kanye, this is sad.

    In this case it’s many different White men and mostly Rock musicians. Namely the White man behind this Project is the Great Rick Rubin

    EAT SHIT, Rubin did nothing but playing with his own ass in the studio i swear on your vagina

    we suggest you GOLDEN AGE RAP LIKE PUBLIC ENEMY

  • nigga pleezus

    And one more thing, rap is not the format to push music forward sonically. Rap music is all about pushing communications forward for the under represented. To make a classic, the beats must support the rap. Rapping on top of electronic beats will always keep the beats TAME, and will always pull away from the vocals. This is why they went minimal with some tracks, and why those worked best, because there was nothing else to do. They are breaking rules that don't need to be broken.

    If he was really trying to get wild with it, the beat would of had crazy build ups, and he would of been spitting on build ups, and spitting on the drops too. That would of been interesting, but they used the EDM elements and formatted them like basic rap beats, so you're left with an anti climax, and the only thing holding this album up is PR and people trying to convince people.

    Sometimes you need to play the back to move forward. Sometimes an artist's greatest attribute in a song is restraint, knowing how to pull back for the sake of the overall piece.

    This album was like the lakers, they thought they could put great individual players on a team and win, but winning a championship don't work like that. You need your pippens, horrys, and kawhi leonards. Team players that do one thing really good with the team, but on their own wouldn't shine as much.

    rubin didn't do shit. he was strictly another name.. he's like phil jackson 2014, they called him in to sit in some practices for advice. kanye was kobe with the Achilles injury. daft punk was howard super talented, but didn't do shit. hudmo is steve nash, white boy getting too much props.. and they lost.

    The next champion of rap will be some unknown BLACK MAN making some funky ass shit harkening back to P.E. lord finesse NWA xclan poor righetous teach, using ill loops we might or might not know, and spitting hard lines that are memorable with a powerful voice using rhythm play in the delivery. Everything NOBODY IS DOING NOW.

    That's just my prediction tho.

    I feel like his use of "Strange Fruit" on "Blood on the Leaves" for his rather thoughtless autotune track was disrespectful. Someone had to clear that sample so shame on them.

  • the realest

    nigga in no way is scottie pippen in the same sentence as robert horry and that nigga from the spurs.

  • nigga pleezus

    nigga that aint the fucking point, the point is they are all supporting players on a TEAM that's won championships... neither pippen, horry or leonard would be a star like MJ on their own team.

  • wiLL dent

    too many clowns funny on here. if someone likes the album their dickriding or a stan but its still not officially out and there is still more dopes checked than nopes so like a tight game in the finals the final outcome will be the outcome

    But man people are so negative and shitty..go find something to do with your lives. maybe create something u feel is better actually,

    Yeezus is dope. Its edgy and different for Hip Hops current climate. It may not be totally groundbreaking but its different then the norm and Kanyes ego is just like it was on college dropout. aint a damn thing changed except he got more dough and he can do whatever the fuck he wants cause hes now on top... sounds okay to me. sometimes people are alienated by shit they dnt like or cant understand
    But then again he got this much hate with 808s too so im not suprised.

    Point blank period. If you're not willing to open your ears and look past that "status quo" of hip-hop in 2013, don't listen to the album. Kanye is the type of dude that wants to INNOVATE NOT REPLICATE. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion so me being a fan of 'Ye I won't sit here and attack the naysayers but honestly in terms of EXPERIMENTING, this is the best album of 2013 and will be until otherwise is proven. At the end of the day 'Ye is an ARTIST and he's doing what ARTISTS do, creating. In example, a Picasso. Everyone doesn't like it but those who do are appreciating ART. And that's what YEEZUS is ... ART .

Niggas on here are funny, most of y'all must have forgot what real hip hop sounds like ..damn shame.

  • supremeSTEEZ

    ^^^Ty.oja , BUT why does ALL hip-hop have to sound the same or have the same concepts? Differences are what make the world go around. The majority of Kanye's album speaks on racism, love, partying, anger, aggression, sex, etc. Are those not all real concepts of life that people can relate to?

  • Ty.oja

    Son kanye isn't saying shit. He said a few real shit on black skin head and new slaves, I've give him that. But come on what is he saying as a whole with this album , a bunch of nothing's with some of the weakest verses I ever heard, sounds like gucci man was writing his rhymes. Cole joint was a Album from the songs and interludes it was well plan out and executed. Kanye is now in that pop or alternative Coldplay lane now ,he isn't hip hop anymore.

    Spun the album like 30 times. I guess it helps its at a shortened length. Great quality production and occasional punchlines. People should actually listen to the lyrics and grasp the concepts instead of getting caught in the production. The album isn't trash your thought process is. If kanye had soul samples on every track with the same exact lyrics these morons would be praising and excepting yeezus as their new lord and savior. It's truly ashame that you can play one track and write off an album just because if your personal opinion of the artist. Most people claiming the album is bad didn't even listen to the album prolly played it in the background while bashing it on the Internet. Kanye wants to start a new movement in momment instead of living in the past which is useless. You want j cole listen to him you want Mac listen to him. Or better yet buy their album. Oh that's right all you elitist don't buy album you claim you love. While your favorite artist fails and labels debate dropping them ill be supporting yeezus while you dicks can keep complaining and doing nothing. 6/18

    I like Daft Punk including other artists from numerous genres but the difference is their albums are cohesive and have a direction. This Yeezus shit is all over the place, screaming on tracks, auto tune here, soul there, electro here and stuff that just doesn’t fit. And then the album name Yeezus doesn’t fit in all but Kanye tried to force the issue with putting a feature by “God” on the album and a couple bars about him talking to Him. C’mon man, cut the bullshit. It’s okay to say Kanye didn’t make a good album, you can still be a fan but not like things the artist makes
    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    This sums it up. The album to me was his weakest by far.

  • the realest

    The album ain't that bad, but ain't the best either. It's not the first to be done. It's just completely unexpected and is the cause for positive and negative reception. Negative reception bcuz we assumed we were getting a rap album instead of pop. And positive reception bcuz ppl see it as bold and groundbreaking bcuz they didn't see it coming. His best? No. But still good. Most hip hop fans won't like it not bcuz "they don't understand it". It's really not serious. They won't like it bcuz they are mostly lyrically favoring and this is a production favored album. That's where the difference is. Me, I favor production over lyrics and will be the first to admit it. And why I feel this album will grow on me. Maybe. All I know is ima just assume this is just his second pop album and I will be expecting a new rap album with tracks like bound 2 and new slaves.

  • The Realest

    Swaggering music such as Power Trip is what creates classics.

  • marty mcfly

    @poopoohead, dumbass, Kanye is a mainstream hip hop artist and has been that ever since his first album. Regardless of what you or him label this album, Kanye functions as a mainstream hip hop artist and people from within hip hop culture buy his music so is Kanye a MAINSTREAM HIP HOP ARTIST? The answer is without any doubt whatsoever clearly YES and are THERE ANY OTHER MAINSTREAM HIP HOP ALBUMS THAT ARE OUT RIGHT NOW THAT SOUND LIKE YEEZUS? THE ANWSER IS NO !!!!!!

  • marty mcfly

    I cant believe there is still an idiot out there that doesn't know Kanye is mainstream. Smh, the nigga cant even bump his head on a stop sign without it making world fucking news and this dumbass still thinks Kanye's music is fucking underground or some shit. FOH

  • marty mcfly

    Furthermore is see fools talking about what Kanye can and cant do. On some shit like well this is rap so Kanye cant do this, or this album is this so that means he cant do that... STFU, aint no rules to what a person can do artistically. And stop with this bullshit like the game is fucked up too. Ever since Nas made Hip Hop Is Dead back in like fucking 06 its always the same shit. Oh the game is fucked up, 07,08,09,10,2011... Hip hop is dead and blah blah blah. Mothafucka Hip Hop is just fine, the only thing fucked up is album sales but the culture itself is not dead or fucked up and honestly for the last decade its Kanye and artists like him that are keepin the shit poppin more so then alot other formulaic bullshitass rappers.

  • Master Lee

    I don't think you can judge Yeezus until you've listened to it at least 5 times. You cant grasp everything off one listen. Its not possible. The album has too many layers too it. Ye is trying to do some creative. You niggas don't have to hate so much. At least Ye is doing some corny ass Chief Keef shit. I still wish some of the production was more soulful though. I would have liked to see a balance between techno and soul. Bound 2 is really the only soulful track on the album. Yeezus is a good album though. Open up your mind.

    From 1992 when I first got my college radio show I had my ear to the street. I met Big and Nas and then went on to lift the lid off of under ground college radio music. Since then I have loved the under ground groups that say what they say. This album would not only never have been played on my college radio show. I would have said this is the wackest lp of the year. Sold out. 1

  • kanyestan

    honestly the production level is definitely innovative and new. however, the lyrics are definitely wack and stagnant. how can anybody argue that the album start to finish embodies new ideas and subject matter. the production, style, and beats are creative and different no doubt. but besides a few tracks (black skinheads and new slaves), the lyrics kanye laid down aren't any different from any other hip hop song. this album constantly echoes kanye's troubled past love life and him hating all the people who judge him. he didn't impress me lyrically one bit. if he actually rapped about something groundbreaking the album would totally be great. but since he struggled lyrically, i can't see how the album gets any praise minus the production and beats. this album is basically 100% love songs material written to unconventional hiphop structure and new wave, punk rock, electro production.

  • Jets72

    Incredible album. Man sets the bar for rap music. Most are to ignorant to see/understand that

  • marty mcfly

    I dont think Kanye was pushing a lyrical agenda with this album (not saying he sucks lyrically just saying I dont think that was his focus) He wrote a few songs himself in a few hours just a couple days before turning it in and he had writers add on to his ideas for the other songs (Dr Dre does the same kinda thing so no I dont have a problem with it). I think this album was more focused on coming with another form of creative marketing and meant to change the way the consumer views the creative possibilities of a hip hop albums and also to add on some new sounds to the culture. New sounds meaning new as for as Kanye's albums and new for mainstream hip hop. I think overall Yeezus was meant to be a musical art piece and not meant to be like a full out 15 plus song album with traditional marketing strategy's with formulaic cliche singles, (radio club song, girl song, song with another popular artist feature single here, etc...). The people that dont like this album dont have to like it but I think Kanye had other focus points for this album then making sure he had some punchlines you like with some predictable commercial songs. Some will say oh you just making an excuse but imo just based on the creation and roll out of Yeezus, it just doesn't seem like he was going for some kinda commercialized industry album or even a traditional 3/16s here and hook here and same ol beat loop style here, over and over type of album. Its more like a piece of music meant for the people who enjoy it and thats about it and also to add some creativity to the game to change it from being so predictable and robotic as far as marketing and expected hip hop sounds.

    Half these niggas saying " you ain't never heard anything like this" It's tired, this is a play on underground, he wants to be a Madlib, but he doesn't have the talent. I like Kanye, he's made some dope albums and his shit is generally enjoyable. This album Yeezus though, this was made for the lowest common denominator, He knows his audience, he's actively insulting them with this album, he's saying "look at me I can make garbage and all of you sheep will still buy it". He has a GOD complex he needs his existence validated, he wants to be remembered by all for his actions and his music. The problem is he is just some lowly nigga working for the man, for as much money he has, he will never be nothing more. He needs to get it into his thick head that he's not a Malcom X or a Martin Luther King, hell this nigga isn't even a George Washington Carver. I just want to say, Nigga you make music, you ain't no symbol or icon, you a dude who drops dope beats with an abc flow. It's alright, your shit is still enjoyable, but don't think for one second you are the second coming. Nigga act like he's curing AIDS or finding the solution to world hunger.

  • poopoohead

    @marty
    Mainstream hip-hop ARTIST ≠ mainstream hip-hop ALBUM all the time. By your logic, as stated before, Reincarnated is a hip-hop album because Snoop is well known as a mainstream hip-hop artist. You don't hear anyone saying "are THERE ANY OTHER MAINSTREAM HIP HOP ALBUMS THAT ARE OUT RIGHT NOW THAT SOUND LIKE REINCARNATED? THE ANWSER IS NO !!!!!!" because it's not a hip-hop album and everyone understands that. Even if most of the people checking on it are hip-hop fans, it doesn't morph the music to fit in that box just because of marketing/categorizing. Also, it doesn't NECESSARILY mean that it's some sort of revolutionary shit WITHIN hip-hop just because it's different. Yeezus has more hip-hop elements than Reincarnated, but maybe this will help you better understand where I'm coming from.

    I never ONCE said that Kanye was not a mainstream hip-hop artist. He said this ALBUM (ALBUM NOT ARTIST) was not meant for the mainstream. That's it. And saying I think he's underground? No. Take the time to actually read before you make counterarguments based on things that weren't said.

    OH and "The people that don't like this album dont have to like it" You're absolutely right. But it makes you look bad when you then turn around and bash other people's likes and opinions. Maybe some people like what you call "formulaic". Maybe they prefer it. It doesn't make your opinion superior or make you somehow more enlightened than them. Once again, this is coming from someone who likes Yeezus.

  • marty mcfly

    @Shithead, you said "Even if most of the people checking on it are hip-hop fans".... BINGO. THAT is the point. The most likely outcome of a Kanye consumer is that they are a fan of Hip Hop. Right Now at this moment and especially on June 18th, are there any other mainstream hip hop albums that those fans will be checking for with a similar sound as YEEZUS? NO. When they hear the album, and consider other records being played in MAINSTREAM HIP HOP, will they think Yeezus is unique in sound more so then everything else In MAINSTREAM HIP HOP? YES. You dont have to tell me what sounds are on this album because i've heard it but regardless the fact remains that hip hop culture and fans of it look at Kanye West has a hip hop artist therefore they look at his albums as hip hop albums. When they go to the store Yeezus will be in the hip hop section. If its up for any awards later this year it will be in the hip hop category, if some songs are played on radio, most times it will be on a hip hop station, etc... Kanye and his music is viewed as hip hop music by fans of hip hop culture. Is there another Black Skinheads, New Slaves, I Am A God etc... style of record being played right now in MAINSTREAM HIP HOP? THE ANSWER IS NO. I dont care what any other album has or what anybody else is doing. Im talking Kanye West, The sound of Yeezus, and the current sound of MAINSTREAM HIP HOP.... Shithead "Even if most people checking for it are hip-hop fans" EXACTLY. I didnt say that the music changes on the album, I implied that the people checking for it are probably hip hop fans.

  • marty mcfly

    And another myth about hip hop artists that I think alot fans get fucked up is the fans will be quick to say some shit aint "real hip hop" and they'll call it pop or something else. Now I know people believe that hip hop artists get love from other genres of music but thats not really true. Alot of times the fans of other genres like hip hop artists but the industry behind those other genres do not. Just like hip hop fans hear some shit and say thats not "real hip hop", people from the other genres say the same shit when the hear rappers. They say shit like thats not "real pop" or "real rock" or "real EDM" or "real R&B" etc... I say all that to say dont be so quick to shit on music that you dont think is "real" whatever. It takes a artists having some kinda guts to not follow the crowd and try and add on to the creativity in hip hop so stop labeling artists this and that from within the culture you claim to love so much. I fucking hate 808s and Heartbreaks but not everything is for everybody. Same with Yeezus so no im not bashing on everybody that dont like Yeezus, what im saying is dont be mad at me if I do. I like half the album but just saying. FIN

  • cmarie

    there are so many fuck boys in the dope house these days. why the penis pics? and the shots at backpackers? may i remind you that kanye is THE (LV) backpacker that made everyone sample soul beats ['if its not an old Curtis mayfield loop then they ain’t interested'-- henry blake] and people are entitled to think this is hot trash. just because something is weird doesn't make it good. i don't know why internet blogs make people forget that some things are just universally good. not everything has to be some small cultish uber unique shit that only 5 people like.

    as far as this album, there is nothing in my personal collection that sounds like it, but that doesn't make the album automatically good or bad. i do think its brave and that is laudable considering that kanye has stayed consistently courageous with his music.

If he wanted to do an industrial\idm album he should have recruited Secede or Apex Twin. This shit sounds like some failed art student experiment. Bound 2 is the best song on the album. True to life.

  • poopoohead

    @Marty
    never said anything about "real" or not. It really does sometimes seem you just like to hear yourself talk.

    My point is that just because an artist is labeled as something does not mean everything they do should or will fit neatly into one category. Yeezus clearly can't be NEATLY placed in the "hip-hop" category. I believe in the consumer's ability to recognize this, especially with Yeezus vs. other hip-hop albums. This is regardless of past releases, audience, music section, award nomination, radio station, etc. So instead of "WHAT ELSE IN HIP HOP SOUNDS LIKE THIS??? NOTHING!!!" it's "there are mainly hip-hop elements, but so many other genres are intertwined within the album that I can't view it as a strictly hip-hop album just because it says Kanye on the front. I have to approach it differently". Essentially what you're saying is that it MUST be compared to hip-hop due to all of the above things. I'm saying it's not really even comparable. Could it impact hip-hop? Sure, but so can things from other genres. Rap is not mutually exclusive.

    And nobody is mad that you like Yeezus, they're mad because you bash their likes and opinions and act like your taste is superior.

  • poopoohead

    @marty
    "...not everything is for everybody. Same with Yeezus so no im not bashing on everybody that dont like Yeezus, what im saying is dont be mad at me if I do."

    Okay, well don't be mad if people like Born Sinner then. If you want people to respect your opinion then you have to respect their opinion. You're right, not everything is for everybody, so stop tearing people down for liking what you don't like.

  • marty mcfly

    @Shithead, My 1st comment was directed at you, my 2nd comment where I discussed "real hip hop" was directed at everybody else. 3rd, Im not bashing anybody opinions (unless they bash mine), I dont even know why your talking about J Cole to me or Snoop's Reincarnated album to me when we're talking about three things which is KANYE WEST, THE SOUND OF YEEZUS, AND THE SOUND OF MAINSTREAM HIP HOP. Now I dont know where people are getting this notion that Kanye West and the sound of Yeezus is not hip hop. I guarantee you that 98% of every fan of music and every faction of the music business will label this album a HIP HOP album. As soon as they hear KANYE WEST "RAPPING" they will immediately identify this album with HIP HOP. Most people know that hip hop itself is the art of turning other sounds into hip hop form but that does not make it that music. If I sample a rock song and put bars on it, that does not mean I just made a rock song. It means I made a hip hop song with a rock sample. Yeezus can be placed neatly in the hip hop category because none of you have the authority to place Kanye West and his music in another category. You said "There are mainly hip-hop elements, but so many other genres are intertwined within the album" Guess what? ALMOST ALL HIP HOP ALBUMS HAVE OTHER GENRES INTERTWINED WITHIN THEM. So me saying what other mainstream hip hop album sounds like Yeezus? None. It makes sense that I say that because its true. Yeezus is HIP HOP music. Blood On The Leaves and Guilt Trip leans the most into another genre but every other song on Yeezus was created using a hip hop style and technique so how the fuck is that not hip hop. You call Born Sinner hip hop right? Well how much influence does R&B have on that album? Alot when you consider Cole does also sing and harmonize of the hooks, the vibe in most of the beats could've fit an R&B artist, and the themes of most of the songs center around his relationships and views on women just like a R&B album does but people still say its hip hop. Well guess what, for the most part on Yeezus Kanye is rapping, for the most part on Yeezus, Kanye is taking beat patterns from other genres and turning them into hip hop formats and then rapping on them, most of the over the top aggression while rapping is also a HIP HOP element so again how he fuck is that song hip hop. Yeezus is HIP HOP and 98% of people out there will refer to it as a hip hop album, they'll just say it contains other sounds but that never takes away the hip hop in it. The style of beats does not dictate the genre of an album. Its what a artists does with those sounds that makes it hip hop and for the most part Kanye turned those sounds into HIP HOP songs so therefore Yeezus is HIP HOP MUSIC.

    So again, what other MAINSTREAM HIP HOP ALBUM THATS RELEVANT IN 2013 SOUNDS LIKE YEEZUS? THE ANWER IS NONE. Mission completed on Kanye's part and no you aint gotta like it but you know thats what Kanye is known for doing, which is being the OTHER type of HIP HOP.

  • Martians From Earth

    @Marty

    He doesn’t play guitar at all anyways, so that was a moot point and my point still stands that IF he did want guitar someone else would play it, a la “a sample”. Also, he didn’t produce one track on this album nor do I believe he wrote the lyrics himself. If anything this is a Pop Rock album, it’s Popular artist(mainstream) and it’s Rock based.

    What hip hop techniques?

    If we are judging this using that kind of ludicrous logic then this is as much a Techno album or Industrial as it is Hip Hop, as they use the same techniques to be created(See the ‘Amen break’ so you can educate yourself). Both of your points are currently moot, try again my friend. Seem like you honestly haven’t heard much music outside of mainstream and maybe a few underground artists in Hip Hop. Go outside of that Genre sometime and get familiar with Rock, Funk, Jazz, Blues, Metal and you’ll see the bigger picture and how this is not genre changing sounds. Go look up Ziggy Stardust/David Bowie, he ACTUALLY bent genres(and genders) back in his “hay day”. I’m sure you’ll have to go google that to be able to speak on it as I’m sure you’ve no actual idea about the amount of music created in the last 30-40 years that ACTUALLY bent genres, this Kanye album, however is not one of those albums. Kanye is good at tricking kids into thinking it’s new and cutting edge just because kids haven’t heard these sounds, it doesn’t mean Kanye is the first, nor the last to.

    This is more of a “Broadway Play” styled album, played out by/Starring Kanye. A compilation of other peoples work, formed by a group of people then handed to Kanye to perform it, that’s basic Pop Music 101.

    This is not a personal Kanye album, period. He, BY HIMSELF, could not have made this album, as you are trying to paint it out to be, he HAD to have all these others come in as he is not familiar with making songs outside of Soul Based sample based music. So you see names like Daft Punk, Hudson Mohawke, Justin Vernon and Rick Rubin. He absolutely NEEDED these people to make this.

  • marty mcfly

    Correction-... most of the over the top aggression while rapping is also a HIP HOP element so again how he fuck is that NOT hip hop.

  • marty mcfly

    @Martians, ok let me ask you this do you consider Kanye West to be a hip hop artist? Now yes you could say that doesn't matter in the context of Yeezus but trust me when it comes out it will be judged and looked at as a hip hop artists. Now, is RAPPING Hip Hop? before we go any further, is the art of RAPPING hip hop? Ok well how many times is Kanye rapping on Yeezus? So surely it must be a strong element of hip hop right? Ok then. Again talking about other sounds and styles does not take away they fact that its hip hop as a matter of fact most of the songs are hip hop, they just another style OF HIP HOP but hey still HIP HOP. Kanye did what most other hip hop artists do which is take different sounds and make hip hop songs to them, the fact that Kanye did it with more intensity does not somehow make it another form of music because then your ignoring the fact that its very much so still HIP HOP.

  • Martians From Earth

    @Marty

    Using this logic, anytime someone "raps"(which is just rhyming words in a pattern) it's Hip Hop. Is Limp Bizkit hip hop? No, my friend, they are not. There is a bunch of music, that is not hip hop, with "rapping" on it. Try again.

    And quit forcing the comparison between Mainstreams current hip hop and this album. This is CLEARLY NOT mainstream hip hop and you know that's true. So to ask "who else is doing this in Mainstream hip hop" is fucking ludicrous and backwards thinking.

    Also, you keep going in and out of Mainstream hip hop and ACTUAL hip hop. You admit to them being different, yet you keep lumping them together when you are trying to FORCE your point across. There are many sub-genres of all music, even Hip Hop.

    Also you assume just because someone is known for mostly doing work in one genre they are relegated to stay in that genre. Rick Rubin is inherently Rock, and he has made hip hop albums but he is not known as a MAINSTREAM hip hop producer, right?

    There are MANY artists who have chosen to go away from what they categorized as genre wise, that doesn't mean anything. it's apples to oranges.

  • marty mcfly

    People calling this a Rock album? Well the reason I say its not and I bring up the guitar is because guitars are a strong element of Rock music. Now there are guitars present on the album but that alone does not make it rock. Traditionally, rock and roll contains a very strong sound of guitars and singing and rock n roll writing techniques. Yeezus is not quiet that. Also EDM music contains a strong element of continuous bpms and production patterns, Yeezus is not quiet that. Pop music traditionally contains certain elements when it comes to hooks that basically creates the foundation to the overall songs, well Yeezus is not quiet that either. Most of the elements of Yeezus can be associated with how a hip hop artist molds certain sounds from other genres.

  • marty mcfly

    @Martians, but again im not talking about Limp Bizkit. Not talking about Kanye West. To move the conversation over to another person takes the focus off what im talking about. Im talking about KANYE WEST and the songs on YEEZUS not what somebody else is doing.

  • Martians From Earth

    To be clear, Rapping IS NOT one of the 5 elements of hip hop.

  • Martians From Earth

    @Marty, You posted "Now, is RAPPING Hip Hop? before we go any further, is the art of RAPPING hip hop?"

    This is what I'm answering you didn't ask, Is rapping YEEZUS or is Rapping Kanye, now you're trying to confine it to this album in question. You are so stuck on forcing your point, you are spinning your wheels.

  • Martians From Earth

    @Marty

    You don't even completely read and answer peoples responses. Like a horse with blinders on, you just keep avoiding and changing the questions and forcing your point and this album into a tiny little box all on it's on. You really believe that? That speaks volumes about what you have heard and know musically. You are stuck in a mainstream bubble of the last 8 years and you prove it with each comment.

    However, I agree this album should be forced into a tiny box... and forgotten about.

  • Martians From Earth

    @marty

    Also to be clear, Limp Bizkit is not a PERSON, it's an entity. Much like this album is not Kanye, it's an entity, many people deep.

  • marty mcfly

    And people saying this album is not mainstream hip hop? I still dont know what your talking about. Of course its mainstream hip hop because its no way it cant be. Kanye West himself is almost legend in hip hop music and again for those that say that doesn't matter, it does because that means the hip hop culture is in tune with this artists music. If Kanye West is not mainstream hip hop then what is he? mainstream Rock, Underground? NO. most people associate the name Kanye West with hip hop so what do you think they associate his music with? And its not just the fans, the overall music industry itself will associate Kanye West as a mainstream hip hop artist so what do you think they'll associate his album with? The very logo on the shit says Def Jam on it and what is Def Jam to the hip hop culture? So again yeah you can make it into something else if you want but that doesn't mean its not hip hop. When you say Yeezus is NOT hip hop then what your saying is it has nothing to do with hip hop but it does very much so have alot to do with hip hop. The reason I bring up "RAPPING" is because yeah I would say that is hip hop. So if KANYE WEST of all people is RAPPING on a song well then yeah im probably gonna say thats a HIP HOP song. If its not hip hop then id assume it has NOTHING to do with hip hop musically. If it does though and on top of that its coming from KANYE WEST then yes id say most people would think hip hop music and again the songs themselves on Yeezus we're constructed by and delivered in hip hop form by a hip hop artist.

  • marty mcfly

    @Martians, but again im not talking about Limp Bizkit. IM talking about Kanye West.

    You are definitely a teenager, with a very limit scope on ALL music, especially hip hop. If not, and you're a grown man, you've been in your house for too many years with a shitty radio station on. I'm slowly starting to feel sorry for you. It's getting really pathetic now.

    Dallas said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    Jimmy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

    I won’t say the album’s trash but it’s just not for me… sonically, it’s too far removed from what I classify as hip-hop. If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye’s album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Yeezus 7/10.

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    What is Yeezus about?

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    album sucks. my head hurt after listening to kanye rap on techno beats from track 1-4. second part of album was ok but album wasnt cohesive at all. don’t mind the ratings this album is getting on mags like ny daily news and rolling stone. this album wasn’t that good.

    vre said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that’s trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does’nt sound like “God” music

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I’m looking at it

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    disappointing…. listened to the album 3 times …. cant see why anybody could praise this weak shit unless they are some serious stans or just trolling… kanye should be ashamed of himself for releasing this wack shit > worst YE project ever…
    had to bump born sinner again because i forgot what good music sounded like for a minute..

    Don’t like the bitching he does, the screaming, the auto tune and at worst the horrible techno beats that switch up at times like he was on acid. Can’t rock with this trash. Take his ass out of the mentions of greatest hip hop artists. The most anticipated album of the year is the biggest let down of the century.

    NYdreamz said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    cloud9 said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    Although this is definitely Kanye’s worst album, it is still better than most rappers’ (including J. Cole) best stuff.

    Kanye’s album isn’t trash, but it’s not great either.. somewhere in between
    Cole’s album there isn’t much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th
    And if you asked me about a month ago, I couldn’t have cared less about Mac Miller.. his album though..

This reminds me so much of 808′s and Heartbreak which I still don’t like btw, people hate it at first then finally catch up, love it, and call it genius. This album is VERY polarizing for some reason lol.

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…
    i heard some people says yeezus is the worst album of kanye west … he will be on my ipod longer that 808 that is for shure.

Moral of the story everyone has different taste.

True one cannot judge an album off of just one listen, but 4x and call it garbage? I can’t get to 1.5 listens if I really had a strong dislike for it. And my name is And You Say Chi City just crunched up together geez lol.

    @cloud 9, I never said listen to an album only once. Imo, after 2 solid listens, you should have a good sense of whether or not you’re feeling an album. What happens is some cats try to CONVINCE themselves that the bs their favorite artist put out is dope.

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

    LordDarko said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.
    Art at its Finest!!

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep “pushing the boundaries” on every album. Especially when it’s not good. And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it’s suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something.

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    Loso said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:53 am

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don’t forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya’ll are big kanye fans but ya’ll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

    Code said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:20 am

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He’s been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn’t necessarily made for you.

    He’s proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren’t you? It’s like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three’s? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won’t like the album will make him try it again, and make it “better.”

    In other words if people say they like it — he probably won’t do it again, because he’s that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I’d give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

    how is this advancing the culture or music with this? im not saying that it has to but im seeing alot of mentioning like i is..i love all kanyes music (like the album) and will never doubt this cat but im not seeing how u can say that hes doing something that is setting new waves or is soo incredible w this album…granted weve only had it for a minute and has he cobained our minds before, absolutely, and hell probably do it again, his premiering music and some of the sounds for this album were innovative…however he jumped on a wave that was already there and added his flavor (personification,puns,wit) and a few spices we know him for..im jus sayin as far as this album being profound, its not. same ish about his sex/fashion/hate..maybe the album isnt suppose to be profound and many just expect, he made us expect that from him tho

You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:42 am

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that “haven’t been used” in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward…mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being “different” and more “creative” GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn’t care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @Born Sinner, umm NO fuckin Rockie Fresh is pushing culture in production far more then J Cole but again I dont hear another Yeezus out there.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @ J, “what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past”? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he’s one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    “On site” = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    “Black SkinHeads” = Great song. Very innovative! (A++)

    “I am a GOD” = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it’s potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    “New Slaves” = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    “Hold My Liquor” = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It’s listenable. (D)

    “I’m in It” = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don’t sound good on this (D)

    “Blood On the Leaves” = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I’ll fucks with it (A++)

    “Guilt Trip” = Horrible (F-)

    “Send it Up” = Horrible (F-)

    “Bound” = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is “Poppin” or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn’t pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He’s pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i’ght ima put out a album.’ Then 3 weeks before its due hes like ‘fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.’ Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    @ JayDtheprince, the songs I like from J Cole, I spoke about when they came out. When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out… When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you’ve said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:16 am

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren’t going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don’t know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:19 am

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye’s produced electric beats weren’t as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Yeezus > W/e the fuck else your listening to atm. Not sure if you like it? Do you know what kind of music you like? My guess is you don’t. It’s really not that hard. Amazing album from one of the best artists of our generation, that’s about it. Also if you think anything on this is EDM, your a fucking moron. You understand you can make (e)lectronic shit without it being (d)ance (m)usic right? smh, guy above me is right, this record simply aint for this crowd.

    Because to me all i got from this was just someone rambling threw 10songs.

    This album sort off was a generic version of NoYrk & Death Grips

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

Specially since niggas say Ye is that genius..and rightfully so. But come on man….don’t bite from talented underground dudes people probably don’t know about…when you have this grand fucking stage for music….just get these dudes in the stu and mesh ideas. Bound brought to mind that Picasso quote “Good Artists copy, Great Artists steal”. That’s all i have to say so far.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons’ hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from “black music” to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    You know the album is wack when you have Kanye apologists coming to the comment section defending the album, looking down their nose saying:

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

Am I the only person who noticed how fast he went from “Murder To Excellence” to cosigning Chief Keef?? This guy has no conviction and I just don’t fuck with it… But I’m prob just hating cause he got mad money to do whatever the fuck he wanted.

    I won’t say the album’s trash but it’s just not for me… sonically, it’s too far removed from what I classify as hip-hop. If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    LISTEN. If you are a strict follower of rap and rap ONLY, you won’t like Yeezus. Simple as that.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    I’m on my 3rd listen and it don’t sound that horrible. Still think it’s his worst in a “Hip Hop” perspective. But if you open ya mind and not go in listening to it as a “Hip Hop” album. It sounds different.

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J. Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye’s album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Yeezus 7/10.

    Don said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    JHP said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    album sucks. my head hurt after listening to kanye rap on techno beats from track 1-4. second part of album was ok but album wasnt cohesive at all. don’t mind the ratings this album is getting on mags like ny daily news and rolling stone. this album wasn’t that good.

    vre said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that’s trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does’nt sound like “God” music

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I’m looking at it

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…
    i heard some people says yeezus is the worst album of kanye west … he will be on my ipod longer that 808 that is for shure.

    ^just because you dont like a particular album or song does not mean its shit or no one else likes it. Each to there own, i been listenin to born sinner and its dope i have listened to it more times then gkmc already. Im sure lot of people will like yeezus more. Moral of the story everyone has different taste.

    @cloud9 this is gonna be a grower album cuz it sounds so radically different, the more you listen to it, different layers will appear. True one cannot judge an album off of just one listen, but 4x and call it garbage? I can’t get to 1.5 listens if I really had a strong dislike for it. And my name is And You Say Chi City just crunched up together geez lol.

    @cloud 9, I never said listen to an album only once. Imo, after 2 solid listens, you should have a good sense of whether or not you’re feeling an album. What happens is some cats try to CONVINCE themselves that the bs their favorite artist put out is dope.

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

    LordDarko said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.
    Art at its Finest!!

    ^^^^^^^^^
    The self entitlement is strong in celebrity culture, jesus christ. WE didn’t PUT him anywhere. If HE wasn’t TALENTED enough HE wouldn’t have production credit on The Blueprint or The Black Album, amongst all the other “Big Name” gigs that HIS hard work went in to.

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep “pushing the boundaries” on every album. Especially when it’s not good. And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    the realest said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:30 am

    this is top 5 worst albums I’ve ever heard. not a hater love all of kanyes discography but idk where he was trying to go with it… i almost feel like its a joke no way he can think its good he just picked the shittys beats wack verses and put out a album with no artwork and see how much money he could make… but watch him still win the grammy for this trash of an album

    b said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it’s suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something. These stans are making excuses but at the end of the day look at the dops to nopes and tell me if kanye got the same ration compared to his previous work?

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    heyyyyyaaaa said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:40 am

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    Loso said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:53 am

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:54 am

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    dugan said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:00 am

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don’t forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya’ll are big kanye fans but ya’ll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

    Code said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:20 am

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He’s been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn’t necessarily made for you.

    He’s proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren’t you? It’s like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three’s? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won’t like the album will make him try it again, and make it “better.”

    In other words if people say they like it — he probably won’t do it again, because he’s that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I’d give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that “haven’t been used” in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward…mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being “different” and more “creative” GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn’t care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @ J, “what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past”? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he’s one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    “On site” = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    “I am a GOD” = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it’s potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    “New Slaves” = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    “Hold My Liquor” = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It’s listenable. (D)

    “I’m in It” = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don’t sound good on this (D)

    “Blood On the Leaves” = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I’ll fucks with it (A++)

    “Guilt Trip” = Horrible (F-)

    “Send it Up” = Horrible (F-)

    “Bound” = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

    JayDtheprince, you said early that the shit was wack and I believe you was saying the whole album so if you think its wack from top to bottom just stay with that. You giving shit A pluses and Bs now. Come on fool you said (or implied man times) the album was wack period or the album was like thee worst music ever created so dont switch up now just hate cause thats how you started.

    @Marty I’m saying it’s wack because i have to press the skip button…. alooooooooot. I still don’t like it as a “Whole” after (3 listens) I gave it a fucking chance bro. I’ll even slap the songs i like in the future. But the majority of this album is not it playboi and you know it

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:07 am

    mcfly I agree that the projections were brilliant, thats why i said so in my first post. All im saying is that i expected more and maybe thats my fault. I see what hes doing and i understand it but i am sick of the subject matter. it seems that hes in a meltdown state and if this is the expression of that il ride w it caz thats life i just dont beleive that its groundbreaking.. its funny to expect that on every album of an artist but many do it..there will prob be sum later this year that makes me swallow my wordds but this album is not it..my opinion

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:11 am

    @Marty Mcfly You know it’s wack too. You just wanna believe that it’s better than born sinner and it ain’t. Your on an Island! With 12 other kanye lovers with this one! .. Majority Rules..

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:12 am

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is “Poppin” or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn’t pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He’s pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i’ght ima put out a album.’ Then 3 weeks before its due hes like ‘fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.’ Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

    i said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    And you did’nt answer my question about j cole. Which means your just a Cole HATER .. HATER! lol

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    @ JayDtheprince, the songs I like from J Cole, I spoke about when they came out. When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out… When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you’ve said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:16 am

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren’t going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don’t know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:19 am

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye’s produced electric beats weren’t as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

    Again, Im talking about KANE WEST and YEEZUS. Your talking about my scope of music but apparently yours is limited considering you dont understand what hip hop music has been doing since the very beginning. Of course YEEZUS is HIP HOP. Just talking about beats and other genres does not mean Yeezus is not hip hop.

  • Fuck This Thread

    I have listened to it once all the way through and I can’t tell if I like it yet (as odd as that sounds). Definitely “different” but doesn’t catch me as having that HEAT yet. Born Sinner is better

    Dallas said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    Jimmy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons’ hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from “black music” to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

    I’m on my 3rd listen and it don’t sound that horrible. Still think it’s his worst in a “Hip Hop” perspective. But if you open ya mind and not go in listening to it as a “Hip Hop” album. It sounds different.

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J. Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye’s album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Yeezus 7/10.

    Don said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    What is Yeezus about?

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    album sucks. my head hurt after listening to kanye rap on techno beats from track 1-4. second part of album was ok but album wasnt cohesive at all. don’t mind the ratings this album is getting on mags like ny daily news and rolling stone. this album wasn’t that good.

    vre said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that’s trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does’nt sound like “God” music

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I’m looking at it

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    disappointing…. listened to the album 3 times …. cant see why anybody could praise this weak shit unless they are some serious stans or just trolling… kanye should be ashamed of himself for releasing this wack shit > worst YE project ever…
    had to bump born sinner again because i forgot what good music sounded like for a minute..

    Don’t like the bitching he does, the screaming, the auto tune and at worst the horrible techno beats that switch up at times like he was on acid. Can’t rock with this trash. Take his ass out of the mentions of greatest hip hop artists. The most anticipated album of the year is the biggest let down of the century.

    NYdreamz said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    cloud9 said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    Although this is definitely Kanye’s worst album, it is still better than most rappers’ (including J. Cole) best stuff.

    Kanye’s album isn’t trash, but it’s not great either.. somewhere in between
    Cole’s album there isn’t much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th
    And if you asked me about a month ago, I couldn’t have cared less about Mac Miller.. his album though..

This reminds me so much of 808′s and Heartbreak which I still don’t like btw, people hate it at first then finally catch up, love it, and call it genius. This album is VERY polarizing for some reason lol.

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…
    i heard some people says yeezus is the worst album of kanye west … he will be on my ipod longer that 808 that is for shure.

Moral of the story everyone has different taste.

And my name is And You Say Chi City just crunched up together geez lol.

    @cloud 9, I never said listen to an album only once. Imo, after 2 solid listens, you should have a good sense of whether or not you’re feeling an album. What happens is some cats try to CONVINCE themselves that the bs their favorite artist put out is dope.

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

    LordDarko said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep “pushing the boundaries” on every album. Especially when it’s not good. And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    the realest said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:30 am

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it’s suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something.

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    Loso said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:53 am

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Sometimes you have people that won’t accept CRAP from a high class/Grad A artist like Kanye. And some are just gonna love any and everything he does and say it’s innovative. Bruh could have made a collaborative ALBUM WITH Brittany Spears and they would have praised him for it.

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don’t forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya’ll are big kanye fans but ya’ll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

    Code said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:20 am

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He’s been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn’t necessarily made for you.

    He’s proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren’t you? It’s like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three’s? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won’t like the album will make him try it again, and make it “better.”

    In other words if people say they like it — he probably won’t do it again, because he’s that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I’d give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

    how is this advancing the culture or music with this? im not saying that it has to but im seeing alot of mentioning like i is..i love all kanyes music (like the album) and will never doubt this cat but im not seeing how u can say that hes doing something that is setting new waves or is soo incredible w this album…granted weve only had it for a minute and has he cobained our minds before, absolutely, and hell probably do it again, his premiering music and some of the sounds for this album were innovative…however he jumped on a wave that was already there and added his flavor (personification,puns,wit) and a few spices we know him for..im jus sayin as far as this album being profound, its not. same ish about his sex/fashion/hate..maybe the album isnt suppose to be profound and many just expect, he made us expect that from him tho

You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:42 am

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that “haven’t been used” in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward…mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being “different” and more “creative” GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn’t care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @Born Sinner, umm NO fuckin Rockie Fresh is pushing culture in production far more then J Cole but again I dont hear another Yeezus out there.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @ J, “what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past”? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he’s one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    “On site” = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    “Black SkinHeads” = Great song. Very innovative! (A++)

    “I am a GOD” = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it’s potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    “New Slaves” = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    “Hold My Liquor” = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It’s listenable. (D)

    “I’m in It” = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don’t sound good on this (D)

    “Blood On the Leaves” = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I’ll fucks with it (A++)

    “Guilt Trip” = Horrible (F-)

    “Send it Up” = Horrible (F-)

    “Bound” = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

I see what hes doing and i understand it but i am sick of the subject matter. it seems that hes in a meltdown state and if this is the expression of that il ride w it caz thats life i just dont beleive that its groundbreaking.. its funny to expect that on every album of an artist but many do it..there will prob be sum later this year that makes me swallow my wordds but this album is not it..my opinion

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is “Poppin” or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn’t pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He’s pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i’ght ima put out a album.’ Then 3 weeks before its due hes like ‘fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.’ Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    @ JayDtheprince, the songs I like from J Cole, I spoke about when they came out. When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out… When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you’ve said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:16 am

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren’t going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don’t know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:19 am

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye’s produced electric beats weren’t as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    Jimmy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

    “Bound” REALLLLLLYYYYY sounds like Madlib or Roc Marciano. i HATE to sound like that purist. But fuck it. I gotta call a spade a spade. Specially since niggas say Ye is that genius..and rightfully so. But come on man….don’t bite from talented underground dudes people probably don’t know about…when you have this grand fucking stage for music….just get these dudes in the stu and mesh ideas. Bound brought to mind that Picasso quote “Good Artists copy, Great Artists steal”. That’s all i have to say so far.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons’ hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from “black music” to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    You know the album is wack when you have Kanye apologists coming to the comment section defending the album, looking down their nose saying:

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

    This guy is a living meme of contradiction. Forget him. Music was amazing. Lyrically had no theme and no substance. I’ve never seen a bigger hypocrite. Am I the only person who noticed how fast he went from “Murder To Excellence” to cosigning Chief Keef?? This guy has no conviction and I just don’t fuck with it… But I’m prob just hating cause he got mad money to do whatever the fuck he wanted. I give it a listen for the music but I stay for the content. Won’t be getting much play from me. 5/5. Man up, son.

    MASTER crowley said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    I won’t say the album’s trash but it’s just not for me… sonically, it’s too far removed from what I classify as hip-hop. If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    LISTEN. If you are a strict follower of rap and rap ONLY, you won’t like Yeezus. Simple as that.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    iAmRafy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    I’m on my 3rd listen and it don’t sound that horrible. Still think it’s his worst in a “Hip Hop” perspective. But if you open ya mind and not go in listening to it as a “Hip Hop” album. It sounds different.

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J. Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye’s album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Yeezus 7/10.

    Don said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    JHP said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    album sucks. my head hurt after listening to kanye rap on techno beats from track 1-4. second part of album was ok but album wasnt cohesive at all. don’t mind the ratings this album is getting on mags like ny daily news and rolling stone. this album wasn’t that good.

    vre said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that’s trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does’nt sound like “God” music

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I’m looking at it

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    disappointing…. listened to the album 3 times …. cant see why anybody could praise this weak shit unless they are some serious stans or just trolling… kanye should be ashamed of himself for releasing this wack shit > worst YE project ever…

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    Kanye’s album isn’t trash, but it’s not great either.. somewhere in between
    Cole’s album there isn’t much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.
    Art at its Finest!!

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success””

    ^ that’s arrogant and selfish as fuck. WE put you on and now you don’t care about making music for us anymore bcuz you live in Europe and just dick riding this electronic wave going on. Wow. Okay. Yeah his ego way too big. He not even hip hop no more. Where that jay-z album at. Fuck kanye and anybody that love him.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    The self entitlement is strong in celebrity culture, jesus christ. WE didn’t PUT him anywhere. If HE wasn’t TALENTED enough HE wouldn’t have production credit on The Blueprint or The Black Album, amongst all the other “Big Name” gigs that HIS hard work went in to.

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.
    Anyway, 6/18 support the individuals that have made meaningful impact in your life, whoever it may be. ONE.

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep “pushing the boundaries” on every album. Especially when it’s not good. And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    the realest said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:30 am

    this is top 5 worst albums I’ve ever heard. not a hater love all of kanyes discography but idk where he was trying to go with it… i almost feel like its a joke no way he can think its good he just picked the shittys beats wack verses and put out a album with no artwork and see how much money he could make… but watch him still win the grammy for this trash of an album

    b said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it’s suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something. These stans are making excuses but at the end of the day look at the dops to nopes and tell me if kanye got the same ration compared to his previous work?

    gregory kruxx. said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:38 am

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    heyyyyyaaaa said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:40 am

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    Loso said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:53 am

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:54 am

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    dugan said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:00 am

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don’t forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya’ll are big kanye fans but ya’ll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

    quicyWASmyNAME said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:16 am

    Code said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:20 am

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He’s been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn’t necessarily made for you.

    He’s proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren’t you? It’s like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three’s? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won’t like the album will make him try it again, and make it “better.”

    In other words if people say they like it — he probably won’t do it again, because he’s that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I’d give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

    how is this advancing the culture or music with this? im not saying that it has to but im seeing alot of mentioning like i is..i love all kanyes music (like the album) and will never doubt this cat but im not seeing how u can say that hes doing something that is setting new waves or is soo incredible w this album…granted weve only had it for a minute and has he cobained our minds before, absolutely, and hell probably do it again, his premiering music and some of the sounds for this album were innovative…however he jumped on a wave that was already there and added his flavor (personification,puns,wit) and a few spices we know him for..im jus sayin as far as this album being profound, its not. same ish about his sex/fashion/hate..maybe the album isnt suppose to be profound and many just expect, he made us expect that from him tho

You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:42 am

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that “haven’t been used” in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward…mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being “different” and more “creative” GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn’t care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @Born Sinner, umm NO fuckin Rockie Fresh is pushing culture in production far more then J Cole but again I dont hear another Yeezus out there.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @ J, “what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past”? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he’s one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    “On site” = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    “Black SkinHeads” = Great song. Very innovative! (A++)

    “I am a GOD” = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it’s potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    “New Slaves” = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    “Hold My Liquor” = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It’s listenable. (D)

    “I’m in It” = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don’t sound good on this (D)

    “Blood On the Leaves” = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I’ll fucks with it (A++)

    “Guilt Trip” = Horrible (F-)

    “Send it Up” = Horrible (F-)

    “Bound” = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

    mcfly I agree that the projections were brilliant, thats why i said so in my first post. All im saying is that i expected more and maybe thats my fault. I see what hes doing and i understand it but i am sick of the subject matter. it seems that hes in a meltdown state and if this is the expression of that il ride w it caz thats life i just dont beleive that its groundbreaking.. its funny to expect that on every album of an artist but many do it..there will prob be sum later this year that makes me swallow my wordds but this album is not it..my opinion

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:11 am

    @Marty Mcfly You know it’s wack too. You just wanna believe that it’s better than born sinner and it ain’t. Your on an Island! With 12 other kanye lovers with this one! .. Majority Rules..

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:12 am

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is “Poppin” or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn’t pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He’s pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i’ght ima put out a album.’ Then 3 weeks before its due hes like ‘fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.’ Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    @ JayDtheprince, the songs I like from J Cole, I spoke about when they came out. When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out… When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you’ve said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:16 am

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren’t going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don’t know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:19 am

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye’s produced electric beats weren’t as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

    Dallas said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    Jimmy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons’ hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from “black music” to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J.

    Don said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    JHP said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that’s trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does’nt sound like “God” music

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I’m looking at it

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    disappointing…. listened to the album 3 times …. cant see why anybody could praise this weak shit unless they are some serious stans or just trolling… kanye should be ashamed of himself for releasing this wack shit > worst YE project ever…
    had to bump born sinner again because i forgot what good music sounded like for a minute..

    Don’t like the bitching he does, the screaming, the auto tune and at worst the horrible techno beats that switch up at times like he was on acid. Can’t rock with this trash. Take his ass out of the mentions of greatest hip hop artists. The most anticipated album of the year is the biggest let down of the century.

    NYdreamz said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    cloud9 said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    Although this is definitely Kanye’s worst album, it is still better than most rappers’ (including J. Cole) best stuff.

    Kanye’s album isn’t trash, but it’s not great either.. somewhere in between
    Cole’s album there isn’t much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th
    And if you asked me about a month ago, I couldn’t have cared less about Mac Miller.. his album though..

This reminds me so much of 808′s and Heartbreak which I still don’t like btw, people hate it at first then finally catch up, love it, and call it genius. This album is VERY polarizing for some reason lol.

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…
    i heard some people says yeezus is the worst album of kanye west … he will be on my ipod longer that 808 that is for shure.

Moral of the story everyone has different taste.

    @cloud9 this is gonna be a grower album cuz it sounds so radically different, the more you listen to it, different layers will appear. True one cannot judge an album off of just one listen, but 4x and call it garbage? I can’t get to 1.5 listens if I really had a strong dislike for it. And my name is And You Say Chi City just crunched up together geez lol.

    @cloud 9, I never said listen to an album only once. Imo, after 2 solid listens, you should have a good sense of whether or not you’re feeling an album. What happens is some cats try to CONVINCE themselves that the bs their favorite artist put out is dope.

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

    LordDarko said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep “pushing the boundaries” on every album. Especially when it’s not good. And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    the realest said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:30 am

    this is top 5 worst albums I’ve ever heard. not a hater love all of kanyes discography but idk where he was trying to go with it… i almost feel like its a joke no way he can think its good he just picked the shittys beats wack verses and put out a album with no artwork and see how much money he could make… but watch him still win the grammy for this trash of an album

    b said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it’s suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something.

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    Loso said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:53 am

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:54 am

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    dugan said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:00 am

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Sometimes you have people that won’t accept CRAP from a high class/Grad A artist like Kanye. And some are just gonna love any and everything he does and say it’s innovative. Bruh could have made a collaborative ALBUM WITH Brittany Spears and they would have praised him for it.

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don’t forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya’ll are big kanye fans but ya’ll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He’s been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn’t necessarily made for you.

    He’s proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren’t you? It’s like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three’s? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won’t like the album will make him try it again, and make it “better.”

    In other words if people say they like it — he probably won’t do it again, because he’s that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I’d give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

    how is this advancing the culture or music with this? im not saying that it has to but im seeing alot of mentioning like i is..i love all kanyes music (like the album) and will never doubt this cat but im not seeing how u can say that hes doing something that is setting new waves or is soo incredible w this album…granted weve only had it for a minute and has he cobained our minds before, absolutely, and hell probably do it again, his premiering music and some of the sounds for this album were innovative…however he jumped on a wave that was already there and added his flavor (personification,puns,wit) and a few spices we know him for..im jus sayin as far as this album being profound, its not. same ish about his sex/fashion/hate..maybe the album isnt suppose to be profound and many just expect, he made us expect that from him tho

    And for people talking about they dont like the album? From your standpoint there’s no where to go with your opinion. You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

    @ marty mcfly see “Born Sinner”

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:42 am

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that “haven’t been used” in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward…mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being “different” and more “creative” GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn’t care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @Born Sinner, umm NO fuckin Rockie Fresh is pushing culture in production far more then J Cole but again I dont hear another Yeezus out there.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @ J, “what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past”? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he’s one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    “On site” = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    “Black SkinHeads” = Great song. Very innovative! (A++)

    “I am a GOD” = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it’s potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    “New Slaves” = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    “Hold My Liquor” = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It’s listenable. (D)

    “I’m in It” = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don’t sound good on this (D)

    “Blood On the Leaves” = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I’ll fucks with it (A++)

    “Guilt Trip” = Horrible (F-)

    “Send it Up” = Horrible (F-)

    “Bound” = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

I see what hes doing and i understand it but i am sick of the subject matter. it seems that hes in a meltdown state and if this is the expression of that il ride w it caz thats life i just dont beleive that its groundbreaking.. its funny to expect that on every album of an artist but many do it..there will prob be sum later this year that makes me swallow my wordds but this album is not it..my opinion

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is “Poppin” or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn’t pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He’s pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i’ght ima put out a album.’ Then 3 weeks before its due hes like ‘fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.’ Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    @ JayDtheprince, the songs I like from J Cole, I spoke about when they came out. When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out… When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you’ve said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:16 am

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren’t going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don’t know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:19 am

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye’s produced electric beats weren’t as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    Jimmy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    Kanye don’t give a fuck and this album clearly shows that he really means that.

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons’ hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from “black music” to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    You know the album is wack when you have Kanye apologists coming to the comment section defending the album, looking down their nose saying:

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

    This guy is a living meme of contradiction. Forget him. Music was amazing. Lyrically had no theme and no substance. I’ve never seen a bigger hypocrite. Am I the only person who noticed how fast he went from “Murder To Excellence” to cosigning Chief Keef?? This guy has no conviction and I just don’t fuck with it… But I’m prob just hating cause he got mad money to do whatever the fuck he wanted. I give it a listen for the music but I stay for the content. Won’t be getting much play from me. 5/5. Man up, son.

    MASTER crowley said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    I won’t say the album’s trash but it’s just not for me… sonically, it’s too far removed from what I classify as hip-hop. If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    LISTEN. If you are a strict follower of rap and rap ONLY, you won’t like Yeezus. Simple as that.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    iAmRafy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    I’m on my 3rd listen and it don’t sound that horrible. Still think it’s his worst in a “Hip Hop” perspective. But if you open ya mind and not go in listening to it as a “Hip Hop” album. It sounds different.

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J. Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye’s album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Yeezus 7/10.

    Don said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    JHP said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    album sucks. my head hurt after listening to kanye rap on techno beats from track 1-4. second part of album was ok but album wasnt cohesive at all. don’t mind the ratings this album is getting on mags like ny daily news and rolling stone. this album wasn’t that good.

    vre said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that’s trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does’nt sound like “God” music

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I’m looking at it

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    disappointing…. listened to the album 3 times …. cant see why anybody could praise this weak shit unless they are some serious stans or just trolling… kanye should be ashamed of himself for releasing this wack shit > worst YE project ever…

    Don’t like the bitching he does, the screaming, the auto tune and at worst the horrible techno beats that switch up at times like he was on acid. Can’t rock with this trash. Take his ass out of the mentions of greatest hip hop artists. The most anticipated album of the year is the biggest let down of the century.

    NYdreamz said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    Kanye’s album isn’t trash, but it’s not great either.. somewhere in between
    Cole’s album there isn’t much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

    LordDarko said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.

    The self entitlement is strong in celebrity culture, jesus christ. WE didn’t PUT him anywhere. If HE wasn’t TALENTED enough HE wouldn’t have production credit on The Blueprint or The Black Album, amongst all the other “Big Name” gigs that HIS hard work went in to.

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.
    Anyway, 6/18 support the individuals that have made meaningful impact in your life, whoever it may be. ONE.

    Kanye’s talent got him where he is now. And this album really isnt EDM…AND if these clowns really want to go there Electronic music been around forever and alot of early Hip hop was elektro…These fuk niggahs need to do their homework and know their history..And know more about music other than just Hip Hop. Cause comments like Yeezy aint hip Hop no more hahahahahahah…Ye is more Hip Hop than ever..as Hip Hop embodies all music.
    But @Really Does right…A sensible post indeed..

    Just gave the Whole joint a spin. It’s art. Not mad at it. I think it’s gonna do pretty well. I could be wrong. Just reading the comments i think the album serves it’s purpose. The best art makes people feel a certain way. It pushes boundries in hop hop. Which is good. But who the fvck really Cares about what i think or anyone else in here……..

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep “pushing the boundaries” on every album. Especially when it’s not good. And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    the realest said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:30 am

    this is top 5 worst albums I’ve ever heard. not a hater love all of kanyes discography but idk where he was trying to go with it… i almost feel like its a joke no way he can think its good he just picked the shittys beats wack verses and put out a album with no artwork and see how much money he could make… but watch him still win the grammy for this trash of an album

    b said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it’s suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something. These stans are making excuses but at the end of the day look at the dops to nopes and tell me if kanye got the same ration compared to his previous work?

    gregory kruxx. said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:38 am

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    heyyyyyaaaa said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:40 am

    Kanye dickrickers are out in full force trying to defend this garbage with every excuse in the book. Nobody owes anybody any respect. Chill with that shit. And niggaz on here IS voicing their opinion. It may not be what a lot of stans like but again it’s excuse after excuse for this shit. Someone on here said it best, “the most anticipated album of the year and it is the biggest let down of the century”.

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    Loso said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:53 am

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:54 am

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    dugan said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:00 am

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Sometimes you have people that won’t accept CRAP from a high class/Grad A artist like Kanye. And some are just gonna love any and everything he does and say it’s innovative. Bruh could have made a collaborative ALBUM WITH Brittany Spears and they would have praised him for it.

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don’t forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya’ll are big kanye fans but ya’ll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

    quicyWASmyNAME said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:16 am

    Code said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:20 am

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He’s been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn’t necessarily made for you.

    He’s proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren’t you? It’s like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three’s? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won’t like the album will make him try it again, and make it “better.”

    In other words if people say they like it — he probably won’t do it again, because he’s that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I’d give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

    Code said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:25 am

    how is this advancing the culture or music with this? im not saying that it has to but im seeing alot of mentioning like i is..i love all kanyes music (like the album) and will never doubt this cat but im not seeing how u can say that hes doing something that is setting new waves or is soo incredible w this album…granted weve only had it for a minute and has he cobained our minds before, absolutely, and hell probably do it again, his premiering music and some of the sounds for this album were innovative…however he jumped on a wave that was already there and added his flavor (personification,puns,wit) and a few spices we know him for..im jus sayin as far as this album being profound, its not. same ish about his sex/fashion/hate..maybe the album isnt suppose to be profound and many just expect, he made us expect that from him tho

    And for people talking about they dont like the album? From your standpoint there’s no where to go with your opinion. You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:42 am

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that “haven’t been used” in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward…mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being “different” and more “creative” GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn’t care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @Born Sinner, umm NO fuckin Rockie Fresh is pushing culture in production far more then J Cole but again I dont hear another Yeezus out there.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @ J, “what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past”? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he’s one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    “On site” = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    “Black SkinHeads” = Great song. Very innovative! (A++)

    “I am a GOD” = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it’s potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    “New Slaves” = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    “Hold My Liquor” = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It’s listenable. (D)

    “I’m in It” = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don’t sound good on this (D)

    “Blood On the Leaves” = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I’ll fucks with it (A++)

    “Guilt Trip” = Horrible (F-)

    “Send it Up” = Horrible (F-)

    “Bound” = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

I see what hes doing and i understand it but i am sick of the subject matter. it seems that hes in a meltdown state and if this is the expression of that il ride w it caz thats life i just dont beleive that its groundbreaking.. its funny to expect that on every album of an artist but many do it..there will prob be sum later this year that makes me swallow my wordds but this album is not it..my opinion

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is “Poppin” or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn’t pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He’s pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i’ght ima put out a album.’ Then 3 weeks before its due hes like ‘fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.’ Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out… When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you’ve said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren’t going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don’t know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye’s produced electric beats weren’t as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

    I have listened to it once all the way through and I can’t tell if I like it yet (as odd as that sounds). Definitely “different” but doesn’t catch me as having that HEAT yet. Born Sinner is better

    Dallas said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    Jimmy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons’ hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from “black music” to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J. Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye’s album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Don said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    JHP said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct.

    disappointing…. listened to the album 3 times …. cant see why anybody could praise this weak shit unless they are some serious stans or just trolling… kanye should be ashamed of himself for releasing this wack shit > worst YE project ever…
    had to bump born sinner again because i forgot what good music sounded like for a minute..

    Don’t like the bitching he does, the screaming, the auto tune and at worst the horrible techno beats that switch up at times like he was on acid. Can’t rock with this trash. Take his ass out of the mentions of greatest hip hop artists. The most anticipated album of the year is the biggest let down of the century.

    NYdreamz said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    Although this is definitely Kanye’s worst album, it is still better than most rappers’ (including J. Cole) best stuff.

    Kanye’s album isn’t trash, but it’s not great either.. somewhere in between
    Cole’s album there isn’t much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th
    And if you asked me about a month ago, I couldn’t have cared less about Mac Miller.. his album though..

This reminds me so much of 808′s and Heartbreak which I still don’t like btw, people hate it at first then finally catch up, love it, and call it genius. This album is VERY polarizing for some reason lol.

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…
    i heard some people says yeezus is the worst album of kanye west … he will be on my ipod longer that 808 that is for shure.

Moral of the story everyone has different taste.

    @cloud9 this is gonna be a grower album cuz it sounds so radically different, the more you listen to it, different layers will appear. True one cannot judge an album off of just one listen, but 4x and call it garbage? I can’t get to 1.5 listens if I really had a strong dislike for it. And my name is And You Say Chi City just crunched up together geez lol.

    @cloud 9, I never said listen to an album only once. Imo, after 2 solid listens, you should have a good sense of whether or not you’re feeling an album. What happens is some cats try to CONVINCE themselves that the bs their favorite artist put out is dope.

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

    LordDarko said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep “pushing the boundaries” on every album. Especially when it’s not good. And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    the realest said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:30 am

    this is top 5 worst albums I’ve ever heard. not a hater love all of kanyes discography but idk where he was trying to go with it… i almost feel like its a joke no way he can think its good he just picked the shittys beats wack verses and put out a album with no artwork and see how much money he could make… but watch him still win the grammy for this trash of an album

    b said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it’s suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something.

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    heyyyyyaaaa said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:40 am

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    Loso said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:53 am

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don’t forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya’ll are big kanye fans but ya’ll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He’s been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn’t necessarily made for you.

    He’s proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren’t you? It’s like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three’s? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won’t like the album will make him try it again, and make it “better.”

    In other words if people say they like it — he probably won’t do it again, because he’s that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I’d give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

    how is this advancing the culture or music with this? im not saying that it has to but im seeing alot of mentioning like i is..i love all kanyes music (like the album) and will never doubt this cat but im not seeing how u can say that hes doing something that is setting new waves or is soo incredible w this album…granted weve only had it for a minute and has he cobained our minds before, absolutely, and hell probably do it again, his premiering music and some of the sounds for this album were innovative…however he jumped on a wave that was already there and added his flavor (personification,puns,wit) and a few spices we know him for..im jus sayin as far as this album being profound, its not. same ish about his sex/fashion/hate..maybe the album isnt suppose to be profound and many just expect, he made us expect that from him tho

    And for people talking about they dont like the album? From your standpoint there’s no where to go with your opinion. You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

    @ marty mcfly see “Born Sinner”

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:42 am

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that “haven’t been used” in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward…mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being “different” and more “creative” GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn’t care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @Born Sinner, umm NO fuckin Rockie Fresh is pushing culture in production far more then J Cole but again I dont hear another Yeezus out there.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @ J, “what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past”? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he’s one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    “On site” = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    “Black SkinHeads” = Great song. Very innovative! (A++)

    “I am a GOD” = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it’s potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    “New Slaves” = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    “Hold My Liquor” = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It’s listenable. (D)

    “I’m in It” = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don’t sound good on this (D)

    “Blood On the Leaves” = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I’ll fucks with it (A++)

    “Guilt Trip” = Horrible (F-)

    “Send it Up” = Horrible (F-)

    “Bound” = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

I see what hes doing and i understand it but i am sick of the subject matter. it seems that hes in a meltdown state and if this is the expression of that il ride w it caz thats life i just dont beleive that its groundbreaking.. its funny to expect that on every album of an artist but many do it..there will prob be sum later this year that makes me swallow my wordds but this album is not it..my opinion

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is “Poppin” or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn’t pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He’s pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i’ght ima put out a album.’ Then 3 weeks before its due hes like ‘fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.’ Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    @ JayDtheprince, the songs I like from J Cole, I spoke about when they came out. When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out… When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you’ve said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:16 am

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren’t going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don’t know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:19 am

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye’s produced electric beats weren’t as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    Jimmy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons’ hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from “black music” to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    ^ that’s arrogant and selfish as fuck. WE put you on and now you don’t care about making music for us anymore bcuz you live in Europe and just dick riding this electronic wave going on. Wow. Okay. Yeah his ego way too big. He not even hip hop no more. Where that jay-z album at. Fuck kanye and anybody that love him.

    Sequels are never better than the fucking first, why do people keep bringing that logic up? Prequels are usually uncut, less successful and more raw. Sequels are generally watered down, but still along the lines..

    You know the album is wack when you have Kanye apologists coming to the comment section defending the album, looking down their nose saying:

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

    TOO SCARED OF MEDIA FALLOUT TO NAME SONG “I AM GOD”

    This guy is a living meme of contradiction. Forget him. Music was amazing. Lyrically had no theme and no substance. I’ve never seen a bigger hypocrite. Am I the only person who noticed how fast he went from “Murder To Excellence” to cosigning Chief Keef?? This guy has no conviction and I just don’t fuck with it… But I’m prob just hating cause he got mad money to do whatever the fuck he wanted. I give it a listen for the music but I stay for the content. Won’t be getting much play from me. 5/5. Man up, son.

    MASTER crowley said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    I won’t say the album’s trash but it’s just not for me… sonically, it’s too far removed from what I classify as hip-hop. If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    LISTEN. If you are a strict follower of rap and rap ONLY, you won’t like Yeezus. Simple as that.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    iAmRafy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    I’m on my 3rd listen and it don’t sound that horrible. Still think it’s his worst in a “Hip Hop” perspective. But if you open ya mind and not go in listening to it as a “Hip Hop” album. It sounds different.

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J. Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye’s album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Yeezus 7/10.

    Don said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    JHP said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    album sucks. my head hurt after listening to kanye rap on techno beats from track 1-4. second part of album was ok but album wasnt cohesive at all. don’t mind the ratings this album is getting on mags like ny daily news and rolling stone. this album wasn’t that good.

    vre said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that’s trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does’nt sound like “God” music

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I’m looking at it

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    disappointing…. listened to the album 3 times …. cant see why anybody could praise this weak shit unless they are some serious stans or just trolling… kanye should be ashamed of himself for releasing this wack shit > worst YE project ever…

    Don’t like the bitching he does, the screaming, the auto tune and at worst the horrible techno beats that switch up at times like he was on acid. Can’t rock with this trash. Take his ass out of the mentions of greatest hip hop artists. The most anticipated album of the year is the biggest let down of the century.

    NYdreamz said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    cloud9 said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    Kanye’s album isn’t trash, but it’s not great either.. somewhere in between
    Cole’s album there isn’t much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th
    And if you asked me about a month ago, I couldn’t have cared less about Mac Miller.. his album though..

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…

    @cloud 9, I never said listen to an album only once. Imo, after 2 solid listens, you should have a good sense of whether or not you’re feeling an album. What happens is some cats try to CONVINCE themselves that the bs their favorite artist put out is dope.

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

    LordDarko said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep “pushing the boundaries” on every album. Especially when it’s not good. And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    the realest said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:30 am

    this is top 5 worst albums I’ve ever heard. not a hater love all of kanyes discography but idk where he was trying to go with it… i almost feel like its a joke no way he can think its good he just picked the shittys beats wack verses and put out a album with no artwork and see how much money he could make… but watch him still win the grammy for this trash of an album

    b said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it’s suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something. These stans are making excuses but at the end of the day look at the dops to nopes and tell me if kanye got the same ration compared to his previous work?

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    heyyyyyaaaa said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:40 am

    Kanye dickrickers are out in full force trying to defend this garbage with every excuse in the book. Nobody owes anybody any respect. Chill with that shit. And niggaz on here IS voicing their opinion. It may not be what a lot of stans like but again it’s excuse after excuse for this shit. Someone on here said it best, “the most anticipated album of the year and it is the biggest let down of the century”.

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    Loso said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:53 am

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:54 am

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    dugan said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:00 am

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don’t forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya’ll are big kanye fans but ya’ll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

    Code said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:20 am

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He’s been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn’t necessarily made for you.

    He’s proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren’t you? It’s like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three’s? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won’t like the album will make him try it again, and make it “better.”

    In other words if people say they like it — he probably won’t do it again, because he’s that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I’d give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

    how is this advancing the culture or music with this? im not saying that it has to but im seeing alot of mentioning like i is..i love all kanyes music (like the album) and will never doubt this cat but im not seeing how u can say that hes doing something that is setting new waves or is soo incredible w this album…granted weve only had it for a minute and has he cobained our minds before, absolutely, and hell probably do it again, his premiering music and some of the sounds for this album were innovative…however he jumped on a wave that was already there and added his flavor (personification,puns,wit) and a few spices we know him for..im jus sayin as far as this album being profound, its not. same ish about his sex/fashion/hate..maybe the album isnt suppose to be profound and many just expect, he made us expect that from him tho

You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:42 am

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that “haven’t been used” in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward…mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being “different” and more “creative” GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn’t care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @Born Sinner, umm NO fuckin Rockie Fresh is pushing culture in production far more then J Cole but again I dont hear another Yeezus out there.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @ J, “what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past”? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he’s one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    “On site” = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    “Black SkinHeads” = Great song. Very innovative! (A++)

    “I am a GOD” = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it’s potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    “New Slaves” = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    “Hold My Liquor” = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It’s listenable. (D)

    “I’m in It” = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don’t sound good on this (D)

    “Blood On the Leaves” = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I’ll fucks with it (A++)

    “Guilt Trip” = Horrible (F-)

    “Send it Up” = Horrible (F-)

    “Bound” = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

I see what hes doing and i understand it but i am sick of the subject matter. it seems that hes in a meltdown state and if this is the expression of that il ride w it caz thats life i just dont beleive that its groundbreaking.. its funny to expect that on every album of an artist but many do it..there will prob be sum later this year that makes me swallow my wordds but this album is not it..my opinion

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is “Poppin” or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn’t pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He’s pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i’ght ima put out a album.’ Then 3 weeks before its due hes like ‘fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.’ Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    @ JayDtheprince, the songs I like from J Cole, I spoke about when they came out. When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out… When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you’ve said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:16 am

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren’t going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don’t know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:19 am

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye’s produced electric beats weren’t as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    This album is straight dope. I’m liking 7 out of the album’s 10 tracks with Bound 2 as my favorite (Uh huh, honey!). I’m looking forward to the two BONUS tracks that are to be released (we already know Eminem has a credit on the album, perhaps he’ll show up?)

    I believe this is the point where ego and creativity interfere with making a quality product and this isn’t quality material. Is it horrible? Nah but its far from good. And just because its different, ambitious or bold, doesn’t make it good.

    baunique said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    By horrible, I mean J Cole’s album COULD have been so much better. Now I see why Nas was disappointed – He (Cole) really isn’t anything special

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    It’s exactly what Kanye said it would be, something to listen to when you’re angry, working out, at work, etc. It’s for a hot summer, then he will drop something else new. And all you haters can suck his YET AGAIN (multi) platinum dick

Amazing album from one of the best artists of our generation, that’s about it. Also if you think anything on this is EDM, your a fucking moron.

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    Jimmy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    @ Mitch He disapointed Nas Because he made “Work Out”. Nas was mad because he thought J. Cole was too good to be making records like “Work Out”. No offense but get the fact correct fam.

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

But come on man….don’t bite from talented underground dudes people probably don’t know about…when you have this grand fucking stage for music….just get these dudes in the stu and mesh ideas.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons’ hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from “black music” to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    You know the album is wack when you have Kanye apologists coming to the comment section defending the album, looking down their nose saying:

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

This guy has no conviction and I just don’t fuck with it… But I’m prob just hating cause he got mad money to do whatever the fuck he wanted.

    I won’t say the album’s trash but it’s just not for me… sonically, it’s too far removed from what I classify as hip-hop. If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    LISTEN. If you are a strict follower of rap and rap ONLY, you won’t like Yeezus. Simple as that.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    I’m on my 3rd listen and it don’t sound that horrible. Still think it’s his worst in a “Hip Hop” perspective. But if you open ya mind and not go in listening to it as a “Hip Hop” album. It sounds different.

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J. Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye’s album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Yeezus 7/10.

    Don said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    JHP said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that’s trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does’nt sound like “God” music

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I’m looking at it

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    Cole’s album there isn’t much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th
    And if you asked me about a month ago, I couldn’t have cared less about Mac Miller.. his album though..

    This CD sounds like the future. Whether you think its good or not don’t even matter. Its Yeezus, its timeless. Nothing like it has ever existed. Kanye can make anything he wasnts and have it respected because he has reached messiah status in the rap game.

    Lmao @ people who say this album is such garbage but gave it 4 or 5 listens straight. GTFOH if it’s hot garbage I’m not listening to it more than once. This album shits on anything out this year. This reminds me so much of 808′s and Heartbreak which I still don’t like btw, people hate it at first then finally catch up, love it, and call it genius. This album is VERY polarizing for some reason lol.

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…

True one cannot judge an album off of just one listen, but 4x and call it garbage? I can’t get to 1.5 listens if I really had a strong dislike for it. And my name is And You Say Chi City just crunched up together geez lol.

    @cloud 9, I never said listen to an album only once. Imo, after 2 solid listens, you should have a good sense of whether or not you’re feeling an album. What happens is some cats try to CONVINCE themselves that the bs their favorite artist put out is dope.

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

    LordDarko said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.

    Oh and not all the time niggaz need to keep “pushing the boundaries” on every album. Especially when it’s not good. And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    the realest said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:30 am

    this is top 5 worst albums I’ve ever heard. not a hater love all of kanyes discography but idk where he was trying to go with it… i almost feel like its a joke no way he can think its good he just picked the shittys beats wack verses and put out a album with no artwork and see how much money he could make… but watch him still win the grammy for this trash of an album

    b said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Fuck all that excuse that the album is art it’s suppose to be music. If he wanted to create art then kanye should have picked up a piant brush or something.

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    heyyyyyaaaa said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:40 am

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    Loso said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:53 am

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Taken rap to a place not even Hov, Pac or BIG could have taken it. Are you are crack? Hov, Pac, Nas and BIG paved the way for a lot of the artist you see today. From the marketing to the merchandising they opened the door. Kanye influenced drake. Who gives a fuck? You acting like kanye is pushing or has pushed the genre of rap. Don’t forget what Cudi did in lieu of kanye. What about Dre? I understand a lot of ya’ll are big kanye fans but ya’ll are talking nonsense. everybody keep saying kanye pushed boundaries before this. On what albums? 808s = Cudi. Kanye himself said that the rating on Yeezus when put to music would be like KRS-ONE. Nothing on this album is original. 5/10.

    Code said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:20 am

    Firstly. Kanye is making his own genre, and the critics will eat it up.

    I felt like Bound was the easiest track for him to make/record on the LP. He’s been on that soulful sample shit since ever (alliteration), even MBDTF was a deviation from College Dropout, Graduation Kanye; so for all you people thinking Kanye let you down, etc., realise the album wasn’t necessarily made for you.

    He’s proven he can make a hip-hop head album, more that a few times to be honest, and as an artist/musician/entertanier/etc, you are given license to expand aren’t you? It’s like LeBron leaning how to post. We all know he can dunk over anyone, but can he get you points on the block, shoot free throws and/or knockdown three’s? I feel Kanye, much in the same way, is experimenting with where his line isas an artist and crossing it; the fact some people won’t like the album will make him try it again, and make it “better.”

    In other words if people say they like it — he probably won’t do it again, because he’s that creative and, by all accounts, that arrogant.

    I’d give the album a 7.5/10 on the first spin, and an 8.25/10 on the second.

    how is this advancing the culture or music with this? im not saying that it has to but im seeing alot of mentioning like i is..i love all kanyes music (like the album) and will never doubt this cat but im not seeing how u can say that hes doing something that is setting new waves or is soo incredible w this album…granted weve only had it for a minute and has he cobained our minds before, absolutely, and hell probably do it again, his premiering music and some of the sounds for this album were innovative…however he jumped on a wave that was already there and added his flavor (personification,puns,wit) and a few spices we know him for..im jus sayin as far as this album being profound, its not. same ish about his sex/fashion/hate..maybe the album isnt suppose to be profound and many just expect, he made us expect that from him tho

    And for people talking about they dont like the album? From your standpoint there’s no where to go with your opinion. You dont like the album so of course you feel some kinda way about the album and of course you only look at it as wack an cant see much artistic about it but for those that actually like some of the songs, they just not as turned off as you are. If you dont like the album thats great cause nobody is making you listen but stop with this notion that there is another album like this thats poppin in mainstream hip hop right now cause I have yet to hear or see it.

    @ marty mcfly see “Born Sinner”

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:42 am

    @mcfly just because it has components of music that “haven’t been used” in something relevant doesnt mean its pushing music forward…mf doom could come out and make a album purely composed of underwater/rewinded church organs/and bowel movement sounds and just because it hasnt been done before doesnt make it great or innovative if it isnt properly put together and cohesive..what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past? infact the screaming and distortions are the same dynamics used on 808s

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    You Yeezus dickriders remind me of the movie PootieTang when dude put out a silent album and people thought it was the best album ever just because it was PootieTang and was being “different” and more “creative” GTFOH.

    I listen to all genres of music but Yeezus was a Fail from a production and lyrical standpoint. Kanye alluded to the fact that he didn’t care what the media or people in general thought about the album because he was bucking the trend, well I think I know why was because this album was an experiment, Not For General Consumption, Still in Beta.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @Born Sinner, umm NO fuckin Rockie Fresh is pushing culture in production far more then J Cole but again I dont hear another Yeezus out there.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:44 am

    @ J, “what did kanye do on this album that he hasnt done it the past”? Project the first offering on 66 different buildings and locations around the world with a song called New Slaves. Now you mite think thats already be done but Kanye has not done that and musically Kanye cant help but push culture forward because he’s one of the biggest artists in the game. If a underground artists drops they album on the same date as Kanye, your talking two totally different levels of impact so of course his music pushes culture forward. A song like Black Skinheads is gonna circle the globe in a matter of a day and anybody that says you know what im gonna combine Punk Rock and hip hop and see what happens when I do it. That right there as an effect on the overall music of the culture especially if a bunch of songs like it start poppin up.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    “On site” = Worst fucking song on this album (F-)

    “Black SkinHeads” = Great song. Very innovative! (A++)

    “I am a GOD” = Started out VERY GOOD. Techno sounds made it lose it’s potential to be a GREAT record. I Can do with the screaming. Ok song i guess, could of been better. (C-)

    “New Slaves” = Great concept. Good beat. Solid Song (B+)

    “Hold My Liquor” = Solid song. Nothing special. Boring as fuck. The hook is trash. But It’s listenable. (D)

    “I’m in It” = Wack. Hooks clean but kanye don’t sound good on this (D)

    “Blood On the Leaves” = Best song on the album! .. Dope ass sample .. Banging drumbs. I’ll fucks with it (A++)

    “Guilt Trip” = Horrible (F-)

    “Send it Up” = Horrible (F-)

    “Bound” = Very Nice. (A)

    4/10 (After 3 listens)

    (Just a Quick Report card check. From my view)

You giving shit A pluses and Bs now. Come on fool you said (or implied man times) the album was wack period or the album was like thee worst music ever created so dont switch up now just hate cause thats how you started.

    mcfly I agree that the projections were brilliant, thats why i said so in my first post. All im saying is that i expected more and maybe thats my fault. I see what hes doing and i understand it but i am sick of the subject matter. it seems that hes in a meltdown state and if this is the expression of that il ride w it caz thats life i just dont beleive that its groundbreaking.. its funny to expect that on every album of an artist but many do it..there will prob be sum later this year that makes me swallow my wordds but this album is not it..my opinion

    j said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:11 am

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:12 am

    @marty mcFUCKBOY you said poppin in mainstream hip hop. Born Sinner is “Poppin” or else it wouldnt come up in dicussion. I dont disagree that kanye isn’t pushing the culture further. He always does. But yeezus is driven musically. He’s pushing the culture in different directions musically. As far his lyrics go, theyve gone in a misyonginistic dark place, where you couldnt really call it pushing the culture further because it mirror his last album. heavily.

    Born Sinner said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think that Rick Ruben interview really hurt the perception of this shit. Like from what he said it sounded like ye was like i’ght ima put out a album.’ Then 3 weeks before its due hes like ‘fuck i gotta put this shit out, lemme get Rick to help do it for me.’ Then Ye has to go to Milan for a night? And then lays down half the album verses in 2 hrs. How do you not put more time into it?

    i said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    JayDtheprince said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:14 am

    @ JayDtheprince, the songs I like from J Cole, I spoke about when they came out. When Blow Up, Im On It, See It To Believe it, Return Of Simba, Miss America, Too Deep For The Intro, and even Work Out… When all those songs came out, I said they were dope in my comments and it was a few other songs as well cause lets keep in mind he been out for a while. 98% of my comments about Cole are about two things, the beat and the rhymes. Its not my fault that im not a huge Cole stan I just dont hear to super amazing lyricism and incredible beats that you people claim he has. But again @jayDtheprince, everything you’ve said about Cole I heard you say already so I dont know what else you can say in regards to Cole because its already been said.

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:16 am

    @Born Sinner, the overall notion that people are now saying is that Yeezus is nothing new because its already music out there like that. Ok well we all know Kanye will be followed by this genre of hip hop so if there is another album out that sounds like Yeezus then what album is it?

    marty mcfly said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    This is what I think Kanye was going for. Name your album something that will draw some type of emotion, have the content be all over the place with no real focus, artistically take a shit and call it an album with some of the worst production and lyrics and watch as the people/industry you said you weren’t going to cater to give you a Grammy. And then throw that shit back in their face for praising a black man creating a shit-piece of an album and being praised for it to prove to us that they don’t know music and that he should have gotten way more recognition for his previous work that he actually put his all into.

    TheJacka said this on June 15th, 2013 at 2:19 am

    For the electronic beats i thought the ones Daft Punk did were niice (On SIght, Black Skinhead I am A God, New Slaves). Ye’s produced electric beats weren’t as good at all, hes always been and always will be the sample king. Thats why Blood on the Leaves and Bound 2 are so good. Theres like 4-6 good songs on here depending how wide your music palette is. But Black Skinhead, New Slaves, Blood on theLeaves and Bound 2 are the best songs on it.

    Dallas said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    This shit is hot garbage… Kanye’s musical downfall will be in his creativity; sooner or later, he doesn’t know how to just make dope music without trying to top what he previously did. I mean it’s always good to try and top yourself in whatever it is you’re good at, but for Kanye that’s his one major problem with Yeezus. So in other words him trying to top MBDTF is the exact reason this album sucks from beginning to end.

    baunique said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    At first when I turned it on I was confused cuz I was expecting grandiose and horns from heaven. I was met with EDM. Kanye is gonna make a killing with reviews/sales in Europe which is where he’s been targeting every since MBDTF. The sound is different but that’s what makes this bitch a gem. I dare someone to find me an album with so much variety with every song still an absolute heater. It’s dope because not only is it Kanye West quality, but it’s got Daft Punk originality. 10/10

    Born Sinncer was horrible. Not saying Yeezus is THAT much better, but I think J Cole is overrated. No offense, he has great lyrics, but his delivery is terrible. He sounds the same on every single track, and his beats are somewhat repetitive. I just think Cole is boring. He has a couple good songs, but to listen to him for a full 18 track album is impossible. He sort of reminds me of Guru from Gang Starr – Good lyrics but monotonous tone.

    Yeezus was very hyped up, and I don’t think it lived up to it, but it was still a great album. It reminds me of his 808s album where people either loved it or hated it. Somebody above me said they’d rate it a 3/10, well I’ll give it a 7/10 since I only really disliked 3 tracks on the whole album. I think people are too critical of Kanye because of his everyday lifestyle, but all that aside, the man makes great music. Great music is all that I care about.

    End Rant.

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Hearbeat Productions said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Each and every album that Kanye has released has been its own entity, differing completely from its predecessor and Yeezus is no different. If you had expectations of this being a newer Dark Twisted Fantasy then you are foolish. If you want College Dropout Kanye, listen to College Dropout. If you want Late Registration Kanye listen to Late Registration. if you want graduation kanye…and so on and so on. Yeezus is its own entity. What makes Kanye Kanye is that no matter what his album is going to take you on an experience you havent been on before. Yeezus is no different. It has elements of past works with the bassy drummy feelings of 808′s, the progressive synths of graduation, and then Kanye adds his own new spin to everything. The intro, I will say, is the worst of any of his albums and starts the album off at an awkward place. Black Skinhead saves the day and hooks you in at track #2. From there on, there is a lot of solid, and sometimes amazing work. “I Am God” is a tad cheap and “Send It Up” is just kind of there. Blood on the leaves is by far the best work on the album. The ambient auto tune intro switches with one of the illest switch ups ive heard when these huge brassy horns drop and Yay takes you for a ride. Overall, the album is a solid work. Not Kanye’s best work, but a new work that needs to be experienced. 8.5/10

    Jimmy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    The album is bad. The type of beats he chose to rap on like “On Site” are not beats that are meant to be rap’d on. Techno is all about the production. The beat, It sits alone with nothing ontop of the production. Rapping on these types of beats just sounds bad and makes your head hurt really really bad from trying to hear what kanye is rapping about in a few of these songs.

    “not caring what the outside world had to say, the release not being about commercial success” – quote from Onsmash on what Kanye feels about this album, and I applaud him for doing this. I think the album is great. And I’m a hardcore hip-hop fan. This is what I expected from Yeezus. It kinda reminds me of what El-P and Killer Mike are doing right now with their music, and they make ill shit. Kanye pushes boundaries. Just my opinion, whether you like it or not.

    The album is trash.

    The only people that don’t think the album is mediocre AT BEST are Kanye Swallowers i.e. KTT members, and people who spent the last 6 months stroking themselves to thoughts of how dope this album will be, who are in-denial and can’t accept the fact.

    The only passable song is Bound. Even that sounds like a College Dropout throwaway.

    The only way in which Kanye is a ‘genius’ is how he has managed to release an ‘album’ with only 10 tracks of substance-less rhymes on 2nd-rate techno beats, with no promo, no single, no cover, and his brainwashed fans still think it is dope.

    1/10

    (Charlie Wilsons’ hook on Bound is the only good thing about this album).

    kanye officially made the jump to pop star. in the way michael jackson went from “black music” to the king of pop. This album is beyond genres. i think of punk when i listen to this. or some metal. add in some of the kanye soul and the elctronic production. some true music that is for the world. If i didnt know it was kanye, i could imagine this being played in some grimey hole in the wall club in chicago. kanye is more than a rapper. thats why opinions on this site from “hip-hop heads” are irrelevant.

    “Oh of course you don’t like it, you aren’t intelligent/cultured enough to understand it….”

    GTFOH. Just because something is different doesn’t make it ‘good’ or ‘creative’. 808s was creative and different in a good way. Yeezus isn’t, it’s rushed and is void of any cohesion at all.

    I won’t say the album’s trash but it’s just not for me… sonically, it’s too far removed from what I classify as hip-hop. If you’re more of a progressive minded person, you might could rock with it. As for me, I prefer my hip-hop a little more traditional, whether it’s boom-bap, trap or ratchet. Just not this… too bad too cause I fucks with Kanye.

    LISTEN. If you are a strict follower of rap and rap ONLY, you won’t like Yeezus. Simple as that.

    I, on the other hand, fell in love with Yeezus. The album is extremely different than others (in a very good way) and I’m quite glad that it won’t be on radio. I will still buy this album on Tuesday, definitely. I believe this is one of his best albums in his discography, if not the best. G.O.O.D. is on top!

    P.S. – 808s & Heartbreaks was terrible to me. There were like one or two good songs on there. If it were a part two, this would be the greatest sequel to anything ever.

    iAmRafy said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    I just don’t like the album being classified as Hip Hop. Because it’s not. I honestly think there is some kind of seceret agenda behind this. I think he’s trying to win album of the year at the grammys this year. And if that is the agenda at hand that i FULLY applaud kanye for being a true genuis. Hip Hop albums don’t have a chance to win album of the year but something like this. (In a grammy point of viever) Definatly has a “chance”

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    I’m on my 3rd listen and it don’t sound that horrible. Still think it’s his worst in a “Hip Hop” perspective. But if you open ya mind and not go in listening to it as a “Hip Hop” album. It sounds different.

    JayDtheprince said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Production wise it should be compared to none he did his thing, But lyrics is good at some points and the rest ehh. Mac Miller, J. Cole and even all the artist on Statik Selektah joint is far more better, I know why people will pick Ye’s album better than the rest but I like lyrics better than production.

    Yeezus 7/10.

    Don said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    cool i can give my tought on this album for of all this is a good album and its better than born sinner.
    the first thing that come too me when i listen to the album is how angry kanye west is , he is not nice at all in this album he is angry but i dont understand about what .
    secondly for what i undersand in those two song Bound 2 and i’m in it his sex life is pretty Raw … he don’t seem to be somebody who make love , but more somebody who fuck hard like porn time.
    He is talking a lot about Racism, i personnaly was one of folks that what a more politically involve kanye west. but i still mess the clever of is first two albums.
    now talking about the sound , its Strong really strong you can practice, make sport , put you on a winner mode with that type of sounds …i personnaly mess some ballads, you know, some soft thing you know … he is screaming all around the album, there is a lof of energy but the messaeg is not really clear. my favorites songs are On Sight // New Slaves // Blood on the leaves //Send it up // Bound 2 !!!! great Songs .musically i can understand where he is from watch the throne to cruel summer /// hype new producers /trap music and electro vybs i miss the soul electro can be soul , trap can be soul but kanye dont seems to wanna be soul. i dont really undersand how the production process is been done there is a lot of producers on every songs but in the same times its musically very simple /// i think that something that mess is real musiciens its a computer , electronic boom bap trap album but no music. i still think its better than J.cole effort , i also think that Mac miller album is great in term of the new generation and new energy that it cristalyse. lets say it like that i would had prefore the type of productions and the featuring of the mac miller album with kanye west playing the lead… so kanye west album is a good album to be strong and make sports , but not really to be clever.

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    I am a huge Kanye fan, he’s my favorite artist by far, and I’ve bought every album from him. College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and MBDTF are Hip-Hop Classics to me. Watch The Throne and 808s are fantastic albums and among the best of the respective years they came out, and Cruel Summer a solid compilation. Kanye’s never made anything whack to me before, and all that being said, based off the first listen, Yeezus was complete garbage to me. I don’t hate Yeezus because it doesn’t sound exactly like his past albums, I just thought it sounded terrible in general. The constant screaming, autotune warbling, the mindless psychotic lyrics don’t strike me as the genius at all. The production is all over the place, and the features are terribly executed. Chief Keef and King Louie are terrible artist, I don’t care if they’re from the Chi or not, Ye shouldn’t put those fuck niggas on his album. As somebody who has loved every other Kanye project, he seriously let me down with this one. I wish this album would receive universally bad reviews and completely flop in sales. I know that won’t happen, but if it did maybe that would convince him to stop going so far out his way just to be different, and just make some good music for a change.

    JHP said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    The album is not horrible. But it’s not great either. Born Sinner actually touches on that. It talks about the duality of being a born sinner. Concept on that album is incredible. He touches on all angels. What i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around is what in the world is this about about?

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    album sucks. my head hurt after listening to kanye rap on techno beats from track 1-4. second part of album was ok but album wasnt cohesive at all. don’t mind the ratings this album is getting on mags like ny daily news and rolling stone. this album wasn’t that good.

    vre said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    @black skinhead I personnaly have the sme question what is Yeezus about, but I still surching .
    why i say that I preferd yeezus from Born sinner
    its simple mathematics i like 5 songs on yeezus that i already talkj about in my first post .
    on the other hand on born sinner i just like two songs Mo money , i wish it was a song and not an interlude
    and secondly forbidden fruit Greats songs !!! the rest of the album sorry to say it but its garbage

    woop said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I’d have to disagree. I liked “Villuminati” GREAT way to kick off the album, “Land of the snakes” Good story telling. Runaway fit in nicely. “Rich Niggaz” was nice to. Showing how i personally think at times. Fobidden fruit as you said “Great” i like the transition to that. Crooked smile even had a place. Did’nt mind that song. Let nas down? (Whoo) maybe you should go back and listen cause that song was man.. smh.. Born Sinner was perfect to end the album with. Had that i’m imperfect but i can only be me type of feel.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    But me and you agree on something and that’s trying to figure out wtf yeezus is about. Which is likley nothing. The name is a God name and this does’nt sound like “God” music

    Black SkinHead said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    If you dislike Yeezus you have a serious case of j.coles dick in your mouth. No one can make an album that sounds like Yeezus and you lames know it. Every single track is a masterpiece. This will be just like 808s all you fuckers are gonna hate then all of a sudden love it. Yeezus will outsell, outlive and have a bigger impact then coley coles album as well as mac.

    @JayDthePrince I know why Nas was disappointed – I’ve read all the articles. J Cole was supposed to be New York Hip-Hop’s next huge blow up artist that was going to progress the genre. All he did was make Work Out, which was a pretty lame song for the standards that were expected. Nas has every right to be disappointed because Cole didn’t live up to his expectation. All he did was make a radio friendly single to generate buzz.

    Pretty lame if you ask me

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    @JayDthePrince I’m not trying to completely rip on the guy and say he is a horrid artist and should stop making music. I just feel that he hasn’t lived up to expectation and he can do better. My comment about him disappointing Nas was only to back my argument on how much better he could be. Sorry it wasn’t completely correct. I should have written it differently now that I’m looking at it

    Mitch said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    disappointing…. listened to the album 3 times …. cant see why anybody could praise this weak shit unless they are some serious stans or just trolling… kanye should be ashamed of himself for releasing this wack shit > worst YE project ever…

    Don’t like the bitching he does, the screaming, the auto tune and at worst the horrible techno beats that switch up at times like he was on acid. Can’t rock with this trash. Take his ass out of the mentions of greatest hip hop artists. The most anticipated album of the year is the biggest let down of the century.

    NYdreamz said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    People got to stop using genre as an excuse for this album. I listen to a plethora of genres, but the problem with this album is that it has no direction. I’ve listened to the album about five times now and it’s just not a solid body of work. This album has three interesting songs at best(Black Skinheads, Blood on the leaves, Guilt Trip), but other than those everything else is just mediocre. At least 808s was fluent and consistent in its approach, this is just a scattered mess.

    cloud9 said this on June 14th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    Although this is definitely Kanye’s worst album, it is still better than most rappers’ (including J. Cole) best stuff.

    Kanye’s album isn’t trash, but it’s not great either.. somewhere in between
    Cole’s album there isn’t much to say about.. At the least its highly consistent, but what we all expected
    Statik’s album is hit or miss track to track (for me at least)

    Like it or not.. Mac Miller is dropping the best album June 18th
    And if you asked me about a month ago, I couldn’t have cared less about Mac Miller.. his album though..

This reminds me so much of 808′s and Heartbreak which I still don’t like btw, people hate it at first then finally catch up, love it, and call it genius. This album is VERY polarizing for some reason lol.

    Honestly this album is weak.. not feeling the techno beats and it’s frustrating that dude is SO talented that he just threw this album out all rushed and half-assed.

    Now J.Cole’s album got mixed reviews, this album is getting mixed reviews (and that’s being kind). Album of the year right now is Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC.

    The simple test of a good album is it’s replay value, how often does it MAKE you want to go back for more. People are forcing themselves to listen to Cole and Ye’s albums on some “Yo after 9-10 listens that shit is dope son” C’mon son.. both those albums will be forgotten by the fall.

J.cole is a good kid he had magnificient songs that he usually put on mixtapes unstead of albums. but at the end of the day we all no he is not strong enough…

    @cloud 9, I never said listen to an album only once. Imo, after 2 solid listens, you should have a good sense of whether or not you’re feeling an album. What happens is some cats try to CONVINCE themselves that the bs their favorite artist put out is dope.

    @Miso Kendrick’s GKMC dropped in October 2012, so late that it couldn’t be considered for last year’s Grammys but should definitely be nominated this year. And it’s not like the album isn’t still on the charts and in rotation everywhere. So yeah, GKMC album of the year. Way more replay and better singles than Born Sinner or Yeezus or anything else that dropped imo.

    QBN said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    this album was amazing. Pushing the boundaries of conventional music all throughout, and making an exciting experience for the listener. It reminds me of 808′s and Heartbreaks in a way, but more dark and gritty. Cole’s album was dope in a traditional way, but this something new all together.

    LordDarko said this on June 14th, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    @Piff said it best. Werd up. I feel like people want the same ol traditional bs all the fukin time and kanye will never give you that..This dude gets better album by album..If you cant understand that real artists evolve and experiment then I really dnt know what to tell u fools…Kanye West just changed the game again. This album is not for everybody..especially alot of sheeple on this site…its def gona get the same backlash 808s did which was krazy.
    And although the way the started first caught me off guard after listening to it all I see why he did it like he did.

    HE wouldn’t have a list of hit records.
    HE wouldn’t have changed the genre.
    HE wouldn’t have gone from a nigga Jay-z didn’t have faith in as a rapper, to THE guy who is now one half of “The Throne”.
    He wouldn’t have been able to make College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation……. blaahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh

    I hate when people think people owe them anything.
    This is HIS art that HE busted his ass of to create.
    He gained commercial success from being IN DEMAND.
    YOU bought HIS work because YOU WANTED it.
    YOU didn’t make him, or anyone else who happens to be super rich from their hard work.
    The way you CONSUME music may be differ from other products you have interests in, but you would ever be stupid enough to claim that WE MADE the Palmolive company, Apple, Google, Microsoft, …

    This rant isn’t in support of this album, I haven’t heard it yet. My will may weaken by tomorrow, but I want my opinion formed from an official release. That stupid “WE made you” shit is the only cause for my babbling.

And especially when it’s being pushed as a rap album with a racially challenging theme. Niggaz called this shit yeezus. Wtf does that have to do with the music he put out. As a rap album this shit is hot gabage. As “pop art”, some lane kanye created, it ain’t better than 808s. 808s was a great album with kanye talking about some real shit he was going thru. This just not touching 808s so if compared to previous work he’s fallen off.

    Listened thru this about 3 times, its kind of exactly what I expected. First of all if you had expectations for this alum to be like Dropout, Registration or Graduation your too busy living in the mid 2000s, that Kanyes been done for a while. For production i thought it was good overall, for me Daft Punk really did a good job. Some parts of songs were just too distracting and kind of annoying. As far as rapping and lyricism its just typical Ye post Graduation. A couple of good lines but the majority of it is just ranting. Overall its good nothing really special IMO id give it 7/10.////Truthfully all of the albums coming out on June 18th are just solid, nothing trash and nothing amazing.

    Kanye dickrickers are out in full force trying to defend this garbage with every excuse in the book. Nobody owes anybody any respect. Chill with that shit. And niggaz on here IS voicing their opinion. It may not be what a lot of stans like but again it’s excuse after excuse for this shit. Someone on here said it best, “the most anticipated album of the year and it is the biggest let down of the century”.

    @gregory kunt, Music is a form of expression not art dumb ass. Stop with all that dick sucking.

    dugan said this on June 15th, 2013 at 12:43 am

    Like I want to know what people who are disappointed with it expected from this album. From the songs that we knew before it leaked were New Slaves and Black Skinhead. From those two alone you could tell he was gunna go darker and more electronic with it. Like if you were expecting a true hip hop album youve been fooling yourself since Late Registration. Ye’s all about pushing the genre to new boundaries, thats all he cares about now.

    Majority of comments coming from people mention “failed expectations” based on previous work. Artist have the right to free will, you pigeon hold the music when you come into it expecting one thing and being close minded to anything else. This isn’t simply just rap anymore its everything. I applaud you Yeezy

    @the realest, with some artists they cant really push the limits on music unless a level of musical risk is involved and im just talking about the few artists that are extreme talents. If you ask them to create something they’ve already done or use a regular formula or try to do anything simply to please the traditional ears of the crowd, the kinda artist im describing is gonna go totally into another realm instead. Kanye is playing his position musically which he has always done and what he’s known for. I dont see anybody saying you know what im gonna push the culture forward by doing a bunch of things thats already been done but I do see someone hearing this album and getting inspired to add on to the direction Kanye was going in. Anytime you take musical risk then you risk pissing people off and not really being victorious in bringing in a new sound. I dont think it was an artistic loss for Kanye but for those who do, you still gotta consider that Kanye did add on to a more creative lane musically in hip hop. Some people will still be mad about it, yes but those that get it and feel inspired by it will use that energy to further push culture in a more creative direction. Rick Rubin – He is pure in his art and in a form where so many choices artists make are often the result of business consideration. Kanye chooses to let his art lead. He didn’t want a premeditated commercial (single) for his album as he looks at it as a body of work. I like it anytime an artist follows his own vision of a project and doesn’t use the cookie cutter template expected of most artists. Kanye proceeds on the road less traveled and I applaud him for it.

    @gregory kunt, you talk of getting an education but yet your own comment is riddled with poor grammar and what not. Look up the definition of the word art and then music either of them elude to being joined. You can call yourself whatever you want to call yourself. Artist, dumbass, bigot, cocksucker it doesn’t change shit. The person talking about education and music is the one who needs a lesson the most. Pushing boundaries? What boundaries? The entire album is a collection of what has already been out there but I don’t expect you to know that.

    Oh, and f.y.i. nothing you say will effect my opinion. You want to kill me. Try your best. Because I doubt you will be able to put your hands on me so all that kill yourself nonsense won’t work. The album is trash. do us all a favor and get kanye’s dick out of your mouth gregory.

    After bitching about the lack of a hip hop vibe. I’ve accepted Yeezus for what it is. Most artist wish they had the freedom to experiment like this. Once again Kanye has taken rap to a place not even Hov Pac or BIG could have taken it. You think Drake or any rapper out right now could exist without Kanye stretching out the lane for artist. Might not be his best but always a step forward as far as hip hop is concerned. I’m gonna stop putting him in the hip hop genre all together.

    @loso, it is failed expectations because of the hype that built up to this album which yes is partly built upon previous work but hype was built on this album by calling Yeezus, holding it in secrecy and the worldwide marketing on building. Kanye put up the high expectations for the album and yet didn’t deliver.

    Sometimes you have people that won’t accept CRAP from a high class/Grad A artist like Kanye. And some are just gonna love any and everything he does and say it’s innovative. Bruh c
