    Yeezus was easily one of the best hip hop projects of 2013. Glad to see it sold so well.

    I guess Ye got the last laugh after all on u niggas

    The first time I heard YEEZUS I was underwhelmed. Second time I hated it. Third time I was able to pick some tracks I liked. By the 5th time I loved the entire project. Aside from 2 average songs, as a whole it’s a strong cd. Cohesive like his other CDs. It’ll get the 808 treatment and be loved in 4 years

  • Terry.

    Yeezus had only sold 600,000 and something by the end of 2013. How did he sell 400,000 more in a couple of weeks?
