Kanye West has always pushed musical boundaries and achieved some pretty amazing results while doing so. His 2004 debut, Graduation helped buck the notion that only thug rappers could rise to the top, while 2008’s 808s & Heartbreak made it easier for MCs to fully express their emotions.
On June 18, 2013 Kanye offered up some more innovation in the form of his sixth solo LP Yeezus. The 10-track album was a sonic disruption to anything going on in rap at the time, and it certainly stood out from the other rap albums that were released on that day — shout to J. Cole, Mac Miller, Statik Selektah and Madlib.
Yeezus was championed by some and criticized by others, but sometimes you just need a little time to sit with the music. So we’re asking you, How do feel about Kanye West’s Yeezus one year after it’s release.
