With only a matter of only days before it’s official release, the seamingly unleaked and nearly unheard Yeezus finally leaked to the internet. Within hours the internet blew up with comments and streams of the album readily become available only (for now). This is surprising seeing as how Kanye West is known for heavily guarding his releases from leaks (take Watch The Throne, for example, which didn’t leak till after it’s official iTunes release).
What’s the verdict? Pretty impressive. What less could you have to expect from Ye? After releasing the critically acclaimed “My Dark Beautiful Twisted Fantasy,” the follow up Yeezus easily stacks up lives up to it’s expectations. Kanye West experiments with a more minimal sound taking influence from the electronic scene in his native Chicago. At last minute, Kanye West enlisted Rick Rubin to help on production and also served as an executive producer. Interestingly enough, no official single has ever been released from the album, leaving much questions about the content about the album before it’s leak. Rick Rubin explained in an interview that no single was ever released, because Kanye believes the album should be listened to as one full body of work instead of diluting it with single releases. Whatever works for you, Kanye. We love it.
