Quick Thought on Kanye’s: The Life of Pablo

Quick Thought on Kanye’s: The Life of Pablo
Weixiang

Kanye has perfected all of his different styles of music, in his previous 6 albums and put all of that into this album. This is the greatest hits album that we’ve never heard of before. Kanye is a life troll, a shitposter on Twitter, the chaotic neutral of the media. His comments of Bill Cosby, of Taylor Swift, show his willingness to blow up all morals for the sake of performance. As witnessed by his postponing of producing this album from Friday to Saturday night, the modular nature of adding a song at the last minute makes this album purely unpredictable. Just like the evolution of his music. 

In the last paragraph of the New York Times’ Review:

Now his rapping is sparser, more pointed, less imagistic and more emotional. And when he truly needs to be heard, he can corral a dream team of collaborators. He’s so fluent that he can use others to speak for him, and be understood clear as day.
