Yeezus
Kanye West

Kanye West’s brand new album, “Yeezus” has hit #1 across the globe this week in cluding U.S, U.K., Australia, Canada, Germany & France!

“Yeezus is a brilliant, obsessive-compulsive career auto-correct… This isn’t just a way to stay ahead of the competition; it’s a way to stay ahead of himself.” – ROLLING STONE

“Immeasurably lofty…razor-sharpened…cohesion and bold intent are at a premium on Yeezus, perhaps more than any other Kanye album. Each fluorescent strike of noise, incongruous tempo flip, and warped vocal is bolted into its right place.”– PITCHFORK (Best New Music)

“Technically breathtaking…Yeezus charges out of the gate…a fiercely edited, assaultive, and noisy work, concerned less with grandeur than with intensity. It doesn’t sound like anything else on the charts…Twenty years from now, West’s previous records will remain important, but a new generation may first gravitate to the lean vibrancy of this one” – NEW YORKER

“An aggressive demand for attention…Yeezus arrives with all eyes and ears on Mr. West…Mr. West’s response to all that scrutiny is an album that stays as combative as its opening zap …the album is one long, efficient, inventive kick in the head.” – NEW YORK TIMES

“Yeezus is the most musically adventurous album West has ever released…Those looking for a progressive, assured and kaleidoscopic rap album… should pop it on at full volume and close your eyes…Musically, this exploration is fascinating. Yeezus is minimal but powerful.” – LA TIMES

“Ominous, mesmerizing …Yeezus is churlish and peculiarly magnetic…West’s music always keeps us thinking about the future. He’s a visionary who’s managed to tweak the serial rhythms that dictate so much of our pop culture diet. He doesn’t do cliffhangers. He jumps off…We gasp, gawk and wonder, ‘Where will he land?’”- WASHINGTON POST

“An eclectic tour de force… Yeezus is bizarre, brilliant, and like nothing you’ve heard before… It’s a sonically audacious, fascinating work of art.” – NEWSWEEK/DAILY BEAST

“Brash and bombastic, Yeezus is essentially the sound of Kanye giving everybody the middle finger and more than anything else, it’s that confrontational attitude that makes it one of the best albums of 2013.” - NEW YORK POST

Mr. Kanye West, you have been a legend since through the wire and before. Your music has inspired me to shoot a short film to your album Yeezus about a dance on Friday night. It chronicles 2 Jr. High and 2 High school students from Monday to the dance on Friday as they deal with self-esteem and relationship problems; while preparing for the first dance of the school year .

 I will post it to on youtube as a personal project so that i can generate some traffic on my blog, as you have said. If this reaches you please contact me if you have any objections. Thank you for your time and congratulations! 

 Blessed that you are here,

Phillip Cabrera
