Kanye turns the page on rap.

Nine Inch Kanye. Got some serious “Pretty Hate Machine”-era Trent Reznor vibes from this song as well as “New Slaves.”

Kanye West, American Mozart or jackass?
President Obama votes “jackass”: A reporter for The Atlantic wanted to clarify Obama’s opinion on hip hop artist Kanye West. Three years ago, the president called him a “jackass.” A snippet from the article:

“‘He is a jackass,’ Obama says, in his likable and perfectly balanced modern-professorial voice. “But he’s talented.” The president gives a wink, poses for a few more pictures, and then glides away to meet with the rich Manhattan lawyers in the other room, leaving behind a verdict that he intended to be funny, and also entirely deliberate: even before an audience of one, the leader of the free world is still not letting Kanye West off the hook.”

The article is three pages long and it battles the two sides of Kanye, the villain and the hero. What’s your opinion on the guy? source

But, somehow, West managed to transcend the preposterous talk show appearances, the too-good-to-be-true Twitter account, the live breakdowns, the Horus chain, the free-MP3 stunt(ing), the press blitz, the breakups, the make-ups, the dick pics, the furniture pornography, the Rosewood movement, the NO NEGATIVE BLOG VIEWING, the living paintings, the short film, and the rest of the lot. Through all that noise, we obsessed first and most deeply over the eye of the storm: the album.
Pitchfork writer Sean Fennessey • Revealing what’s been a straight-up given for the last month – Kanye West has Pitchfork’s top album of 2010. Considering it got a 10.0 from the site, it would have been a shocker if it wasn’t really. Past Kanye, perhaps the biggest surprise of the top twenty is Janelle Monae’s relatively low number twelve showing. The question is, who would’ve let her in the top ten? From Titus Andronicus to LCD Soundsystem to Deerhunter, the top ten overall is pretty solid, complete with James Blake’s numerous EP releases this year. Actually, we have a thought – Vampire Weekend’s “Contra” doesn’t belong there, thanks to this ad. Put Janelle Monae in its spot and give a girl with some awesome ideas her due, Pitchfork. source (viafollow)

Pitchfork’s Kanye West review today is a rare beast

  • 04/02 the last time the site gave the marker to a new album (Wilco’s “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”); And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead got one two months earlier
  • 11/10 the last time the site gave a 10.0 to a reissue (Weezer’s “Pinkerton”), which is much more common – Pitchfork often gives the hallowed 10.0 in retrospect
  • 04/05 the last time an album got a 10.0 AND a 0.0, which Robert Pollard’s WTF stage-banter oddity “Relaxation of the Asshole" got; technically it’s a 5.0 source

Kanye doesn’t understand why retailers don’t like his album cover

So Nirvana can have a naked human being on they cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wingsMon Oct 18 03:02:27  via web

So yeah, wow. The “banned” Kanye album for “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” has a cover so weird that we don’t think that we can post it here. But Pitchfork has it, so go over there and look at the painting of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings. source
