KEEPING UP WITH KANYE
Has any 20-time Grammy winner ever been taken less seriously than Kanye West? Ignore the types — bloggers, Twitter trolls, late-night TV hosts — who consider his passionate accounts of racism and classism to be rants from a lunatic (all while complaining that pop stars these days aren’t as political as they used to be) and listen to the dude on his own terms: At his last New York show, West announced that his forthcoming Yeezus wouldn’t sound like what’s on the radio, and at this follow-up he displays the
glorious results, songs that pop with
elements of everything from trap to
industrial to dancehall.
