Kanye West Yeezus album review by Big Ghost

Ayo whattup you back in the presence that never left...Its ya boy Crack Cocaine Biceps aka Big Ghost nahmean. It aint no secret that this ni**a Yeezy outta control. Son got the ego of like 72 men combined nahmean. Jus look at the song titles on this shit b. Straight up n down...Kanye done gone from walkin wit Jesus to FAWHHGIT BOWT JEEESUS AWM DA NEWWW MUHSIYAHHH... But is son gon live up to his own high standards? Lets dispense with the legalities and find out right now yo...

The views n what have you in this muthafucka is all my owns…so that aint in no way a reflection of nobody other than myself n whatever else b. No other man or woman or child represented heretofore n such hereby is sharin the opinion of the gentleman who be sayin the shit contained within namsayin. This muthafucka do be containin foul language n shit that might offend small children n old people n shit too. It should be noted by all those who is present today here today before God that yall here on ya own accord n if anybody not cool wit that they should leave now or forever hold they peace…

1. "On Sight" - Imma keep it all the way real wit yall...the way this shit started had me wishin for the days of unnecessary Mr West skits... maybe even Nicki Minaj recitin some bullshit ass limerick in a British accent or whatever... Soon as I heard the electro shits start up I knew what the fuck was bout to happen... This shit like BLOOP BLUHHH BLEEP BLOOP BLUHHH BLEEP BLOOP BLUHHH BLEEP BLOOP BLUHHH BLEEP BLOOP BLUHHH BLEEP TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK BLOOP BLUHH BLEEP BLOOP BLUHHH BLEEP...soundin like he made a beat n threw the Atari filter on that shit when it was done. The hook like BLUH BLUH BLUH ON SIGHT BLUH BLUH BLUH ON SIGHT... I kno it aint paintin a vivid picture for yall muthafuckas who aint heard the shit yet but trust me...shit is accurate. Took me bout 200 listens before I saw any value in this shit. It aint my favorite track or nothin but I aint mad at it really. Probably be kinda dope at a show.......in the middle of a desert.......on Mars......wit Chinese acrobats shootin outta cannons from one side of the stage to the other n this shit blastin out some big ass speakers at 70 billion gigahertz n whatever..Ionno...

2. "Black Skinhead" - Its like son took all the most homoerotic sounds n elements from the song Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode n added 808s to that shit... This beat is like the sound of some oiled up dudes in cowboy hats pretendin to twirl lassos in the air on the dance floor in music form n shit. This track probably sprinkled all in Chris Bosh workout playlist 10 different times by now n shit. That ni**a Yeezy probably thought to hisself....'Dis shit pruhVAWKative' tho. Apparently CyHi the Snore Gawd n Lupe "12 black belts n 10 PhDs" Fiasco had sumn to do wit this too. Bars is aight but summa this shit bogus nahmean. Like son said "I keep it 300 like the Romans" which is probably spose to be a double entendre n whatever...which is cool... I mean I aint no professor of geographical history or nothin like that but I think the Spartans in 300 was actually Greek tho fam. Thats jus minor details tho. Brother Ye on his pro black shit for this joint namsayin. Son really tryin to make his pro-BLACKest song to the pro-WHITEst music here tho. I cant say I all the way fucks wit this shit...

3. "I Am A God" - This sound like some Illuminati rap. Feel like this the song Kanye been makin for the last 3 years...except now he jus gettin right to the point n called the song what he probably wanted to call ALL his songs since Watch The Throne n shit. Like son not gon tip toe round the fact that he fell from the heavens above n now he among mere mortals that fuck wit his music. Like he feelin like IF YALL NAWT GON SAY IT AWMA JUS SAY IT FA YAAALLLL. Fuckouttahere Kanye... You wild stupid for a genius yo. You can proclaim this shit all you want but you jus a ni**a who kno how to hit some buttons on a machine that makes music REAL REAL good n can rap better than average but happen to got the decorum of a toddler b. Its like Kanye never stopped goin thru his terrible twos n shit. Son cant eem play a instrument or nothin like that or speak multiple languages so how he a GOD my ni**a? Im sittin here spinnin a vase from the Ming dynasty on my finger b. Fuckouttahere. I do this shit forreal.

4. "New Slaves" - This shit sound like ART...n Ion mean that as a compliment bruh. I feel like the Blue Man Group gon hear this n be like YO LOOK AT THIS MUTHAFUCKA JACKIN OUR SHIT B... This beat is like if you take 'Cold' n slowed it down 90% n stripped away anything that was interesting bout it. If you brought a kangaroo into the studio n tried to get it to play some notes on the keyboard it would probably play some shit like this... Shit is not exactly beyond the capabilities of the average marsupial wit no musical training whatsoever b. Only time shit gets musically interesting is bout 3 mins in when son hits us off wit some autotune bullshit n actual music n shit... Lyrically aint nothin on this song that son aint already said better on All Falls Down. If you a hipster muthafucka ya fedora probably did a backflip on ya wig the moment ya heard this shit tho. I mean...Ion HATE this shit but I aint feelin it neither yo.

5. "Hold My Liquor" - Who woulda guessed that a joint witta Chief Keef feature could be one of the best parts of a muthafuckin Kanye album bruh...? If any these tracks got that "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy-esque damn near depress the shit outta you but at the same time make you feel good" shit goin for em...this that one. Shit starts out like...aight, so I guess this ni**a tipsy... Then Keef.. who jus sounds permanently intoxicated wit or without autotune namsayin...gets his unnecessary on durin the hook before Yeezy spits a MESSAGE IN THE FORM OF A IGNORANT ASS KANYE VERSE verse that drunk hoes gon be quotin after they leave the club for the next 5 years. All a sudden shit turns into 'Lost In The World' for a minute before its jus some sad guitar or synthesizer type shit at the end. Overall tho...I aint mad at this shit bruh...

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Kim Kardashian and baby Yeezus

6. "I'm In It" - This probably coulda been on MBDTF too... Shit got that Cruel Summer feel to it too (Yall thought THAT shit was hard to enjoy...). But this shit even creepy for a Kanye song bruh...talmbout bitin n eatin ass... Son made sure he mentioned it was some Asian box he was pourin sweet n sour sauce on n a Black chick he was puttin his fist in like a civil rights sign tho. Jus so we kno he not sayin this shit bout his Armenian queen namsayin. But if he WAS describin his baby moms on this song he probably woulda stuck a lamb kebab in her ass n spread baba ghanoush all on it. Listen son....what this muthafucka wanna do in the privacy of his own domain is his business n whatever namsayin...but all I can picture is a seeded up Kim K wit her orca dress half off n a gagball n her mouth when he sayin this nasty shit yo. Ionno what purpose a muthafucka might have for this track other than to have shit to listen to at a Trojan orgy or some shit like that. If you rock latex garments n enjoy painful sex this might be your jam tho....

7. "Blood On The Leaves" - Ok Im startin to feel like the songs on this half of the album is jus MBDTF leftovers now... Shit is on that serene shit wit the dope flip of "Strange Fruit" before it switches up into that FUCK DEM OTHER NI**AZ CUZ IM DOWN 4 MY NI**AZ shit from that awkward ass era of Snoop bein signed to No Limit n makin summa the worst music of his entire life. Apparently Kanye jacked the shit from his own peoples tho...who knows tho. Like the homie Nasir Jones said...its no ideas original...theres nothin new under the sun. Either way this one of the best joints on the album up until he goes ham on the autotune at the end again yo. Fuckouttahere Kanye.

8. "Guilt Trip" - This shit sounds more like Cruel Summer Yeezy than MBDTF Yeezy. Son kept it in the family n sampled the shit from Pusha's Blocka joint n let Cudder croon some shit at the end too. Theres some opulent shit up under the synths too wit the strings n whatever. Shit is aight. I probably wont skip thru the album to get to track 8 ever but I aint gon hit the skip when it gets there neither. Word is bond...get ya dutty wine on if you wanna ma...

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Kanye West as Yeezus

9. "Send It Up" - Ionno who King Louie is but son is all types of mediocre bruh. But thats whats POPPIN right now anyways yo. Ni**as jus want hot garbage all day namsayin. Aint nobody got time for all that INTELLIGENCE shit my ni**a. Dont nobody wanna hear all that MUSICAL shit yo...fuckouttahere wit that musically sophisticated shit wit creative lyrics n concepts yo. But thats neither here nor there feel me? Then the boy Ye come in talmbout "This the greatest shit in the club...since In Da Club"... Naw bruh...shit not een the best shit since "Bands A Make Her Dance" my dude. But shit is aiiiiight which is better than the shit thats jus naaaaah on this muthafucka I guess. Not a lot to say bout this shit. I fucks wit it but at the same time I aint gon show it to my kids 15 years from now talmbout THIS THAT REEEEAAAL MUSIC NOT THAT SHIT YALLS BE LISTENIN TO.

10. "Bound 2" - This shit is magnificent yo. Word is No ID, Rick Rubin n Heatmakerz helped make this magic happen...I mean you already kno this bout to be a problem son. I aint gon go into too much detail other than the fact that if you aint feelin this then fuck you dont read my shit b. This is magnificence in its purest form. Yeah I mean...it aint musically "PUSHIN THE BOUNDARIES" of whats possible in hip hop like "Black Skinhead" n "New Slaves" but its ENJOYABLE shit you can listen to n ENJOY...right now n not after the shit grows on you. It aint gon challenge you or open up new portals n ya mind that allow you to travel to other dimensions that exist inside of some shit like a leaf or a seashell that you can only see after you align ya chakras n meditate at the top of a hill at 4am ey'day of ya life or whatever. But you can play that shit n ENJOY it. Yeah the lyrics aint exactly some groundbreakin shit neither...its jus more of that simple ass post-Late Registration shit Kanye be doin that 17 yr old  muthafuckas wit no life goals or intentions of havin careers be goin apeshit over. But ya kno what...you can listen to this shit mornin or night n still ENJOY it.

So yeah maybe that boy Kanye takin risks... Maybe he not comfortable restin on his laurels n makin shit that muthafuckas is gon be like yooooooooooooooo to soon as they hear it. I appreciate that he tryin new things n pushin the envelope n whatever the fuck...but it dont automatically make that shit poppin. Thing is...ALL Kanye old shit always had soul to it....even that weed plate 808s n Heartbreaks had soul... Summa THIS shit reeeeaaally dont got no soul yo. I kno it aint jus me... Muthafuckas wanna connect to a artists work nahmean.... Whether its a painting...some poems...or a song or whatever whatever. They wanna feel somethin when they hear music...emotions n shit. Whether it make you wanna dance, cry or duff old people in the face...music should make you have impulses to do some shit other than wanna hit the skip button 8 or 9 times nahmean. I actually HATE a lot fewer songs on this album than i thought I did tho. But I still only LIKE a couple tracks...n LOVE one joint. But see..we livin in a age where new songs, mixtapes, n albums be poppin up every .000045 seconds n not a lot of muthafuckas wanna invest they time n patience allowin shit to GROW on em. But maybe thats the bullshit that needs to stop. Maybe this was Kanye tryin to get ni**as to pump they brakes or try sumn new...like he sayin I KNO YALL LOVE TURKEY BUT YALL EVER TRIED MONGOOSE? ...but we tryin the mongoose n summa us is like NAW NI**A n summa us is like OH THIS SHIT IS POSITIVELY DELIGHTFUL...BRAVO KANYE...I FEEL LIKE KICKIN OFF MY TOMS N DOIN CARTWHEELS ACROSS THIS MEADOW n shit. Some muthafuckas is gon be more open to it. Others not so much... Somebody whose opinion I respect said Kim K box gotta be trash...cuz Amber Rose inspired MBDTF. That shit resonated wit me son. But this shit? Not so much. Then again maybe Kanye not makin music for muthafuckas like me right now. Maybe he makin shit for sensitive perverted ni**as that dont like drums. Or maybe he hopin ni**as is gon follow him wherever he goin. All I kno is son aint fall off. Like...he definitely CHOOSIN to do some other OTHER shit right now... Its like when he made 808s n Hearbreak n then bounced back wit MBDTF. Whether you fucks wit this shit or not...he definitely pushed the art n the culture forward...like pullin out a kids rotten teeth n allowin the new ones to grow in. Ion personally ENJOY this shit the way I usually ENJOY Kanye albums but he definitely got muthafuckas reevaluatin shit. We reactin to it. Even the ni**as that LIKE like this music is sayin ni**as jus dont GET it n actin wild defensive n shit... Im sayin 1) Fuck yall n 2) Maaaaaaybe yall right. First time I heard this shit I was like GET KANYE THE FUCK OUTTA HERE. Now Im thinkin hol up...did I miss some shit here? Thats art right there yo.

Aight peace.

I give this shit 3.5 Zeus Slaps outta 5
