MONO’S MUSIC REVIEW- Kanye West’s “Yeezus” Album
Rates
Production: 10/10
Lyrical Content: 6/10
Lyrical ability: 6/10
Overall: 7.5/10
Positives-
I really enjoyed most of the production on this project even though it wasn’t necessarily Kanye’s “Sound” he once had starting out as an emcee.
Two of the more memorable tracks on this project for me were “Black Skinhead” and Guilt Trip(Ft. Kid Cudi). What I liked most about these two tracks from the others on the album is that they’re very progressive from the rest and attention-grabbing coming from Kanye’s charisma and his somewhat “lyrical sincereness”. I also enjoyed Kanye’s message in “New Slaves” about how African American people(specifically musicians) are still “slaves” in this modern time; I really enjoyed his references towards big record company execs.  and them getting people to do things for them, rich or poor.
Negatives
One thing that threw me off from this project for the jump is that, for one, he called his project “Yeezus” and has “I Am GOD” as one of the featured songs on the project. This gives me the instant impression that kanye is referring to himself as indeed, GOD.
Another thing that i didn’t like about project is that i felt like there were alot of “Empty Space” through-out each song on the album. He could have came harder on the project lyrically. Very Average in my opinion.
Two songs that I felt were most disappointing from the rest of the project were “Hold my liquor” and “Blood On The Leaves”. I felt like Blood on the leaves had alot going on at once at points in the song while Hold my liquor had not much going on and needed more lyrical effectiveness on this piece.
Overall, I would say that Kanye’s newest release, “Yeezus” is a pretty solid project but I can’t stop thinking about how selfish Kanye appears in this album. I mean, when you have a song on your project called “I am a God” on it and you are suppose to be a MAN OF GOD… something’s wrong there..
