Kanye West is definitely not a disappointment when it comes to delivering hot beats, original tracks, and tunes that will blaze in your head forever. On Monday, November 22nd, his "ye-ness" released his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, that fans were raving about way before it even dropped. With "Good Fridays" by way of Kanye's website, he graced fans with weekly releases of new singles for their hearing pleasure.
An amazing rapper, lyricist, and verbal poet, Kanye West has come back with a more upbeat album that reflects his amazing talent. With great collaborations from Elton John to Pusha T, from Kid Cudi to Fergie, Kanye reinforces the fact that he is one of the best rap artists of the last decade, and arguably, one of the best rap artists of all time, along with those who precede him like the Notorius B.I.G., Tupac, and Jay-Z.
Yes, Kanye can be very "confident" in his talents and skills as a rap artist. However, can you blame him? He always delivers each time he releases an album. Of course, some modesty could be expressed, but when you're that successful, it is okay to boast, every now and then.
The music continues on with Kanye releasing a collaborative album with Jay-Z titled Watch the Throne, set to be released in 2011. Be sure to keep an ear out for this dynamic duo release.
Enjoy this short video of Kanye performing "All of the Lights" (my fave song on the album) last night, November 23rd, at a secret concert in New York City, held at the Bowery Ballroom:
