Kanye West - Ye LP


Kanye West makes good on his promise of new music, dropping his eighth studio album, ye following weeks of buzz and notoriety surrounding its release. In true Kanye fashion, he premiered the album at a listening party in the wilds of Wyoming with dozens of celebrities, musicians, journalists and industry executives that were flown in for the festivities and he live streamed it for all of the world to witness. The follow-up to 2016's Life Of Pablo is not without some Kanye trademarks, sample-leaning beats and a laundry list of featured artists that includes guest appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, John Legend, Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih, Young Thug and Charlie Wilson. At only seven tracks, Kanye still manages to pack an emotional punch on ye, answering his critics and bringing to light some of his internal drama during his two-year hiatus through verse and some soulful samples.
