Kanye West, Despite Himself, Is Bigger Than Ever
By 1VIBE • Issue #13 • View online
Kanye has finally released his new album Jesus Is King, but of course he was late with the release, and instead made a surprise appearance on Jimmy Kimmel while fans were eagerly waiting to stream the project. To be honest, we’re just happy to finally listen to what Ye has been cooking up in the studio. On our first few spins, we’re not sure which fans Kanye crafted this album for, it sounds like a passion project more than anything but we think artists should exercise the freedom to create art without pressure, expectations or limitations, so we’re not mad at Mr. West for experimenting. Ye isn’t here to entertain anyone, Jesus Is King serves a higher purpose. If you want to go deeper behind the album, peep the full credits and check out Kanye’s exclusive interview with BigBoy.
Note: For issue 13, a total of 88 links were considered. View the full list here.
