Does this look familiar to you? reminds you of the CDs your homeboy or homegirl would burn for you back in highschool when you wanted to cop that new Jay, Biggie, or Nas?….well your pretty close. Our music genius Kanye West is serving us the throwback vibe with his new album, apparently hes done with commercial everything!
Last night, during his performance at the Governor’s Ball, he addressed a few things regarding his upcoming album, “Yeezus” during a brief break in his set, including his decision to release his project without an album cover. He revealed:
“This is usually the part of the show when I start complaining about sh-t…justifying sh-t but you know how it is. I’m just happy to be making music. And happy to be able to perform and sh-t for y’all. You know with this album, we ain’t drop no single for radio. We ain’t got no big NBA campaign or nothing like that. Sh-t, we ain’t even got no cover. We just made some real music. And you know like, back when I use to make albums and sh-t like a couple of years ago, we would go away and work on our album for like five months or something ,and then we’d always have to hold the album until August or September, till the perfect moment and sh-t. Because it will mean that, ‘I think you’re going to sell more because you get more audience and ratings and sh-t,’ but honestly at this point when I listen to radio, that ain’t where I wanna be no more.”
Honestly at this point, I could give a f-ck about selling a million records as long as I can put out an album for the summer that y’all can rock to all motherf-cking summer[…] At this point, I don’t really give a f-ck about outside opinions, all I give a f-ck about is my clique, clique, ain’t nobody fresher than my motherf-cking clique, clique, clique. As I look around they don’t do it like my clique. And all these b-tches mad they want the d–k.
In case you missed it, this is how the Yeezus album will be packaged when it hits stores on June 18.
