The guy has literally never said anything that has made me think. It's a constant stream of verbal diarrhea

I guess every generation needs one

Has Triumph the Insult Comic Dog messed with Kanye yet?

I like a lot of Kanye, don't really see him as some unbridled genius though, sometimes I think he is aiming at satire but he doesn't really provide the contrast to make it work.

I don't really buy that he is particularly candid or raw or that self aware, it comes across as the emperor's new clothes, we'll look for deeper meanings behind some of the quite embarrassing things he says and does, because we never want to look foolish for buying into it.

I don't think it detracts much from some of his really good tunes though.

That's a well-reasoned stance. It's near impossible to read into intent, though I think he's delivered on every record that he's put out. Watch the Throne & Cruel Summer are inessential, singles-oriented summer jams overall with their share of killer tracks between the two.

This pretty much. Just placeholders between two opuses. Though they still showed artistic progression and map the journey from MBDTF to Yeezus.

The fact that in the intervening years he could put out two "filler" albums that contained tracks like Niggaz in Paris, No Church in the Wild, Otis, Clique, and New God Flow is incredible.

I think you're both underselling Watch the Throne.

I'd put it below all of the solo albums, but it is a lot better than Cruel Summer.

That being said, NEW GOD FLOW

It doesn't have the laser focus or ambition of Yeezy's solo work. Seeing him languish in his success, like in the "Otis" video, fucking rules. The track was a personal anthem after a particularly rough summer for yours truly.

Nothing wrong with team-up albums or compilations by any stretch, I just don't find them as thrilling as Graduation or 808s, for instance. The point of view is scattered.

Guess she won't be his White Kate Moss tonite.

I'm so tired of these videos of people quitting. Sorry you hate your job? Glad you can walk out on it...I guess.

I feel you on that.

I like her dance moves, though.

I enjoy the video, too. That's probably the worst part. I just know behind every video like that is an article like this, that won't get half the views the video does:
