“Yeezus” is the sixth solo studio album by american hip-hop recording artist and producer Kanye West. It was released June 18, 2013, by Def Jam Recordings. The album was primarily recorded in Paris, with West enlisting various artists and close collaborators for work and production on the album. West enlisted the help of producer Rick Rubin a mere week shy of its release to strip down the record’s sound in favor of a more minimalist approach.
Musically, “Yeezus” is darker and sonically experimental, combining elements of Chicago drill, dancehall, acid house, and industrial music. Initial promotion of “Yeezus” included worldwide video projections of the album’s music and live television performances. The record received universal acclaim upon its release.
Dark, dark, dark. As usual, Kanye West put in the map the alternative hip-hop he delivers in every album. The production of Daft Punk is not as successful as “Random access memories”. Like in “Dark fantasy”, this is a difficult review, but we think this is not the album we expect from Kanye West: not that good.
