Black Skinhead is always

Video got taken down. People on the Kanye board are saying that it's tour visuals because "stage" is written in the url and the video is split three ways, suggesting that parts of it will be on separate screens. Not to mention the haste in removing it. It's a terrible video no matter what, but it makes more sense as background visuals. I certainly hope they're right.

Maybe he'll incorporate this into that Jetsons movie he's working on.

Update: Kanye tweeted that someone leaked the video well before it was done and "fuk you."

Which doesn't make me feel any better, it's still going to be terrible if this is the concept they're going with.

Alright I just heard Black Skinhead at a pub. Had a few beers. Got a little bit pumped up.

I've heard the album 7 times I think, but I still haven't listened to Yeezus drunk yet. That's got to make I Am A God and Send It Up way, way better, and I already like them.

So I finally gave Yeezus a listen earlier today, and I really was impressed. I would say with confidence it is the best thing he has done. It's fierce, it's taut, it's unforgiving, and it feels genuine. My main gripe with Kanye has always been that his narcissism complex feels contrived, but on this one he sounds more fragile and almost self-deprecating than on past efforts - especially Dark Twisted Fantasy. It's not like the lyrics are any more insightful or relatable than before, but rather that the intensity of the sounds around his voice seem a better reflection of the fractured emotional state he is trying to evoke. This is especially true of I Am a God: I get the feeling that the song is not so much a boast as an accusation that people are expecting him to act as such. Quite appropriately the beat and instrumentation on the track sound like the bottom is about to fall out. Black Skinhead and Bound 2 were my other favorites.

I think you're not giving MBDTF enough credit. There's plenty of fragility and self-deprecation on it: Devil in a New Dress, Blame Game, Runaway.

The role reversal in this last page is proof that no two Kanye West albums are alike.

It's probably just a matter of taste. If I am remembering correctly, Runaway has that five-minute coda that gives it a self-pitying feeling, which struck as the mood throughout much of that album. Yeezus, on the other hand, seems downright angry, which is a mood that Kanye wears well.

I'll put this way: on Twisted Fantasy, he seemed to be saying, "you don't take me seriously because I've been an asshole in the past." On Yeezus, that tune has changed to "you don't take me seriously because I am a black man with a ton of money and influence." The sense of frustration and pain is a lot more palpable in the second sense, for me anyway.

It was already absurd, but I laughed until tears began to flow when I saw how lazy the name was.

How much do I not give a fuck?
