The track list for the album is still being finalized, but the all-star crew of artists who have joined West in the studio is a who’s who of music in 2013, ranging from Daft Punk and Skrillex to underage Chicago MC Chief Keef and members of Odd Future.
Just try and imagine the Odd Future collab not being the best one.
This is the artwork for Kanye’s new track, “Theraflu”, in which he says “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor”. Then:
When PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals) learned of ’Ye’s defiant lyrics, the animal rights group lashed into him with scathing words of their own.
“What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings,” said PETA’s Senior Vice President Dan Mathews in a statement sent to XXLMag.com. “He’s a great musician but doesn’t seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes. We keep hoping that one day he’ll find his heart and join evolved style icons—including Russell Simmons, Pink, and Natalie Portman—who have dropped animal skins.”
2012 was our first Grammy Awards (launched beta in June 2011, out of beta in November). Since these are considered to be, somewhat, the Holy Grail of popular music, we can all agree that many (not all) of the artists that take a golden phonograph home made quality, accessible music. So, seeing as how MusicGrid.me is designed to serve as a conduit of critiques and approvals by you and your friends, we thought it would be interesting to compare what The Recording Academy said with what you said.
One of the only albums that I can listen to straight through without skipping a single song. Each one is my “favorite” throughout the day. And the best part is that “Rolling In The Deep” isn’t even the best song on the album. You’ll never regret listening to Adele.
Although this album was initially a little hard to get used to (I’m such a diehard “For Emma, Forever Ago” gal), upon repeat listenings it marks the evolution of a sound that Justin Vernon and company have worked hard to create. Each song is so intricate and layered and beautiful, and I find something new and lovely and moving about it with each play.
Love the album and the production. Many people are sleeping on this album, but it will definitely grow on you. Hopefully they will continue to collaborate and create another album. Definitely the best Hip Hop album of the year, and may enter top 15 of all time.
Turns out, MusicGrid.me’s pretty good at helping you find great music! Read some reviews, discover new music, and be a part of rating music socially; there’s so much great music being put out, and we know you don’t wanna miss a thing.
