YEEZUS: THE SAMPLES

Kanye West held a Yeezus listening party in New York on June 10th — Beyoncé and Jay Z were there! — and this is what we learned about the album: it will drop for sure June 18, it is (as of last night) 10 songs long, it features Chief Keef and Bon Iver on the same song (!), it samples TNGHT and Billie Holiday on the same song (!!), and it’ll come with small appearances by Kid Cudi and Frank Ocean.

We should also share some choice Kanye quotables.

On the album title:

“West was my slave name and Yeezus is my god name.”

On Rick Rubin coming in last minute to produce Yeezus:

“Last, but not least that came and helped bring this whole shit together, that executive produced the album with me and the family, is Rick Rubin coming in and like finishing up the whole shit for us, which is legendary because everything we did on this project, everything I did, like when we released ‘Numbers on the Board’, from the video, to the no artwork, to the style of the song and everything, I was like ‘what would Rick Rubin do.’ What was his Def Jam shit that they would do because I remember Rick even saying, he said ‘when we did Def Jam we really wasn’t feeling like we was in competition with nobody body because our shit was so direct… ‘where we at right now?’ We in the middle of the city right now, open to the muthafuckin’ streets and nobody is shuttin’ down shit while we make real music. “So I had to go to the god Rick Rubin and play him my shit, ask him questions and allow him to take this project to an entirely new level. And he made a lot of great decisions at the end and pulled it to a new level.”

On his befuddling album promotion:

“I got a new strategy, it’s called no strategy. And I got a way to sell more music, it’s called make better music.”

On what he’s learned:

“I had to learn about giving, this whole album is about giving… this whole process is about giving … NO FUCKS AT ALL!”

Praise, Yeezus.

Barring the few brilliant moments (and there are a few), Future Brown’s debut full-length feels tired and inconclusive.
