Rapper 50 Cent recently spoke on his thoughts towards Kanye West’s “Yeezus” album, almost a year after its release. During the interview 50 explained why he wasn’t the biggest fan of Ye’s latest studio release.
Although 50 is a big fan on Kanye, he did admit he was a bigger fan of Ye’s previous albums.
“When asked if he was a fan of West’s most recent record, Mr. Cent replied: “He’s obviously a talent within our culture and is one of the driving forces of it, but some of that s**t is weird to me. “That last record, to be honest, I’m not playing it right now. I still play Flashing Lights, Gold Digger and that whole (College Dropout) project. But some of the new stuff is so creative and feels like he’s trying to create a whole new sound.” (MTV UK)
The G-Unit head also spoke on the problem with the overall sound of the album.
He continued: “It sounds scrambled… radio is going to play dance music, EDM – you got a lot of stuff happening in music culture that’s influencing a lot of R&B music to that tempo. It doesn’t feel like Hip-Hop to me, it feels like a fusion of something else, like a weird combination of dance music sounds and stuff. It’s just him being an artist, you don’t have to agree with everything an artist does. Like, I don’t have a favourite artist, I have a favourite moment from artists. Like with Drake, there’s songs he came out with and the timing was perfect for the record.” (MTV UK)
