For the fourth time in six albums, Kanye West takes the Top Pazz & Jop Prize by Village Voice. You can check out the full article here. What were your thoughts on Kanye’s latest album, Yeezus? Let us know in the comment section below.
Yeezus walked all over our 2013 Pazz and Jop poll, taking top album honors and filling three of the top 10 singles’ slots (“Bound 2,” “New Slaves,” “Black Skinhead”), impressive considering the album is nearly devoid of radio hits. (But not too surprising: Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy did the same back in 2010.) It’s Kanye’s fourth album in six that’s stunted all over Pazz, making him the most successful and consistent artist in the history of the poll. His four wins tie him for most ever with Bob Dylan. Kanye, of course, did it in a fraction of the time with a much smaller body of work.
