Kanye West — Yeezus The Cool Black Review

Kanye West — Yeezus

Yeezus, like his 2008 album 808s & Heartbreak is a departure from Kanye’s usual hip hop offerings. As Kanye classified 808s & Heartbreak a pop album, that incorporated elements of synthpop, electronica, R&B, and electropop, so is Yeezus. While the 808 tracks are primarily sung rather than rapped by Kanye, the Yeezus tracks are mostly rapped. 

While the musical styles vary from song to song and sometimes in a song itself I think the album as a whole WORKS. While not all the tracks (any?) are radio singles, the album works if you listen to it as a whole. There are several tracks that do stand out and classify as HOT that I have listed below.

I like Yeezus a lot and I applaud Kanye for trying something different—and making it work!

1. On Sight HOT
2. Black Skinhead HOT
3. I Am God (featuring Justin Vernon) warm
4. New Slaves (featuring Frank Ocean) HOT
5. Hold My Liquor (featuring Chief Keef and Justin Vernon)
6. I'm In It (featuring Justin Vernon and Assassin)
7. Blood on the Leaves HOT
8. Guilt Trip (featuring Kid Cudi)
9. Send It Up (featuring King L) warm
10. Bound 2 (featuring Charlie Wilson) HOT
