    I'm in Chicago all week and am getting ready to head out to the one at the Art Institute Museum. Pretty excited. Shit like this NEVER happens in KC so it'll be neat to actually get to participate in something like this. Avoiding all the videos online so far until I see it in person.

    LOL one guy noticed that there was a giant window right in the middle of the projection, so he took it upon himself to apparently go up and down the escalator just inside the building all night hahahaha.

    Video.

    Kanye is considered innovative for projecting media onto walls, something my math teacher did every day in class...

    Still excited for new music from him - the song sounded pretty damn good (hope he plays it on SNL tonight)

    I can't see them letting him do that on national tv lol.

    "So fuck your Hampton house.
    I fucked your Hampton spouse.
    Came on her Hampton blouse.
    And in her Hampton mouth.'

    They ended up projecting it onto those spitting fountains at the one I went to last night, and it was awesome. Like 200 people showed up to this particular one and all freaked the fuck out when they realized it'd be on the fountains. I heard the one at the Six Corners was pure chaos though, and traffic had to be shut down because several hundred people overtook the whole area. So awesome.

    This is New Slaves on the spitting fountains:

    I'm watching New Slaves on SNL now. I heard the name Bobby Boucher and thought it was hilariously awkward.

    I think he's trying too hard with this one.

    Enjoyed both songs - they sounded like beefed-up versions of Death Grips tracks!

    I guess there won't be many laid-back soul samples on the new record...

    I haven't always liked Kayne, but watching his evolution as a musician has been fascinating. He's come a long way since Through The Wire.

    I love "Black Skinhead", thought it had a very KMFDM vibe to it. Yeezus is going to be the best birthday gift of all time...OF ALL TIME!

    Pre-order was up for a bit (9.99 for digital, 14.99 for cd) via his official store...taken down for some reason but I imagine it'll be back up soon.

    yeah, that was what I thought at first as well. odds of MTV not knowing what they're talking about? pretty high. looking forward to checking out the studio quality version

    Oh please. Every time there's an influx of new people here, there's always one. Someone with the generic 'I thought since this was a NIN forum you'd all listen to the most underground, real shit out there. Did I see a Kanye thread?' Yes. You did. This forum is filled with the nicest people you'll find (don't see a lot of other forums where there's a thread devoted to how much the members 'luv' each other), but it's also a place where very few punches are pulled and sugar coating stuff is most likely not gonna happen. Do you really want to be in a place like that?

    Trust me, for how hardcore you are and for the number of 'underground' artists you listen to, there are at least two people here who listen to shit you've never heard of. Start a Public Enemy thread if there isn't one already. People are discussing Kanye West because he has an album coming out in A MONTH. I bumped it up from like five pages back. Trust me, we've discussed Public Enemy...they just haven't been discussed in a while. Also, if you do, expect the possibility that someone may bag on them...differing opinions and whatnot. A few people here think that threads aren't for discussion, but just to hang off the nuts of said artist (despite how shitty they are these days or how it's 2013 and only 34 people care)...that's just the way it is here.

    Please stay, we need more people here that aren't, what was it, 'sheeple'??

    Back to bleating!! BAAA BAAAAA

    You know, I made a similar statement on the old board about Public Enemy back when MBDTF came out, I can assure you that in those three years, I was wrong. If you can't respect what Kanye is doing as a whole, there's something terribly wrong. None of his other counterparts are doing what he's doing now. While I fuck with Drake because he uses great samples and has introspective, relatable, and thoughtful lyrics, nobody is on the level of Kanye. Wordplay, forget it, I literally laughed at how awesome the rhymes and lyric sheet for "Black Skinhead" was. I used to think Hova was the best in the game, but he can't evolve like Kanye, not to mention Hova hasn't done anything memorable since American Gangster, and that was six years ago. I don't count Watch the Throne because his bits are the weakest.

    But yeah give me Yeezy over conscious hip hop like Sage Francis or Jedi Mind Tricks anyday.

    Im very interested to hear what this guy is going to do next in terms of full album.

    Dark Twisted Fantasy was a creative peak for him, perfectly reflecting his feelings on the fame and status he has achieved world wide.

    Watch The Throne is mostly pure indulgance of the level of fame him and his buddy have... so whats next?

    He either pulls something out of left field and treats us to something entire new and creative OR his head gets so big that he explodes it into a record of self glorification on a level that we have never seen before. Perhaps it will be a combination of both, though I m thinking that it will be more of the latter... I mean this is the guy who has been chanting I AM GOD in concert.
