Wu-Tang Clan member U-God recently had some advice for Kanye West-Stop living on another planet and hop on back down to Earth.
According to The Huffington Post , the rapper claims Kanye has lost his way:
“In keeping with that theme, U-God has words for Kanye and Jay-Z. The two other self-proclaimed God MCs have both released controversial albums in the past two months, and U-God didn’t shy away from making his preference known. Jay’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail” earned a much warmer review: “Jay’s in a creative zone, and he had to adjust to the digital age. He had to make that transition like any other artist. I look at this as a transitional album for him. The man is always going to have lyrics and be rhyming. That’s just what he do. It’s all good, man.” West, in U-God’s estimation, “is getting too far away” on “Yeezus”: “Tell him there’s no sound in space. He’s got to come back on planet Earth. Space is a vacuum. There’s no sound in space. Earth is where it’s at. Come back down baby, come back.” (Huffington Post)
Rapper 50 Cent also recently weighed in on the sound of Yeezus:
“Some of the joints on the new joint that Yeezy made, I wasn’t into all that,” 50 admitted in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. “One time, the beat didn’t come on. [The screaming on there], it was creative. He came out of nowhere with that. If you see something that looks like it’s foreign — we’ll see if people can adjust to it and really enjoy it or if it’s too different. There’s a point where creative is well past your mark. You did something that’s so far out that your audience can’t hear it. Be careful what you say because it might work.” (Shade 45)
