This afternoon the inevitable happened: Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ leaked. This is Kanye West’s sixth studio album, and he has proved that he has still as irreverent, as innovative, and as controversial. As promised it features plenty of primal screaming, classic soul samples, politically-barbed lyrical content, and the incredible mic technique that made Yeezy famous in the first place. Throughout, the production on the album is absolutely sublime, his work with Hudson Mohawke and Daft Punk make for matches made in heaven, and triumphant closing track ‘Bound 2’ proves that Yeezy still has soul. Album out June 18.
