Ye has resurfaced since removing himself from the eye of social media. He has released the video for his song “Life Of The Party” from the deluxe version of the 2021 Grammy nominated album of the year record Donda. In typical Ye fashion he has presented the world with something groundbreaking and artistically compelling.
The music video is presented as a melange of Ye’s artistic talents. The video is a platform that showcases a seamless alignment between Ye’s creative platforms.
Photos from Ye’s youth have been updated with inlay pieces from the forthcoming Yeezy Gap engineered by Balenciaga creative exploration.
The song originally featuring Andre 3000 from the group Outkast does not include his verse. Ye uses his own verse to thread a timeline of his life and the art he has presented to the world in the form of sketches and fashion. The oversized jackets and other pieces are prominent throughout the visual and serve as a long form advertisement for the collab. Check out the video for “Life of the Party” below.
Ye has dropped and after 2 days of taking it in I can honestly say its a great release. An in depth review is coming soon. Big Boy was fortunate enough to be in Wyoming for the official listening party and interviewed Kanye. We find a very happy and lucid Kanye in this setting. Check it out.
Stream/Buy “That Ol Boom Bap” ft Precise produced by Dj Tekwun
After the all the rants, drama, racial tension and MAGA hats dozens of influencers and media have descended upon Wyoming to listen to Kanye’s newest project. The release is also being streamed on an app called WAV. The stream started at 9pm CST. If you were expecting music you were disappointed. The stream focused on the Wyoming landscape with horses in the background while you listened to crackiling a campfire.
Chris Rock introduced Kanye with a few jokes and mentioned that hip-hop is the first art form created by free black men. He also said that Kanye has taken full advantage of his freedom and to listen to the project without prejudice.
The name of the project is Ye and the first lyric you hear behind a brooding vamp is “The most beautiful thoughts are beside the darkest. Today I seriously thought about killing you. Premeditated murder.” The production is classic Kanye and lyrically it plays like a journal he has been keeping for the past few months. A few well placed lines speaking on current issues lace the project. “Russell Simmons wanna pray for me too. But imma pray for him cause he got #metoo I wonder what if that happened to #metoo”
The inspirational Kanye that we all know and love enters with a Slick Rick sample assisted by the unmistakable vocals of Charlie Wilson. The campfire is LIT literally and figuratively and all of the people who flew out to hear the project seem pleased and content under the Wyoming sky.
Considering that Kanye has spent the last year in Utah and Wyoming it makes more sense why he has been espousing these middle America sentiments. He doesn’t get a pass for it, it just makes sense. When it all comes down to it when it comes to Kanye its all about the music and always has been.
After two listens it is safe to say Kanye delivered once again. He has captured the attention of the world and given an insightful heartfelt and honest project. Fresh off of Pusha T destroying Drake the G.O.O.D music wave continues rise with the release of Ye. Cudi and Kanye are up next. Lets see how he will top this release.
