    I mean I was expecting the video to be a nasty video and such. Like the nudity and Penis rumors before the video and such were overrated. Its there but its not nearly as bad as I thought it would be

    Being someone who doesn't like Kanye, I liked Black Skinhead as a song, so I had high hopes for the video. I thought it was pretty boring.

    Needed more of a story, yes. But it was pretty cool with animation.

    I don't care about the story, but the animation (aside from his 3D render) was pretty sophomoric... could have been made in a college motion graphics class. And the 3D render wasn't enough to keep watching the video.

    So this isn't 100% confirmed ...

    Kanye often likes to offend people or whatever and I've always liked that ... but this is a whole 'nother level, if it's true, and even I find it questionable

    Miley Cyrus on a Black Skinhead remix... :facepalm:

    Yeezus is still AOTY.

    It's definitely still my favourite album from 2013 thus far. "Hesitation Marks" next week, though ...

    Hesitation Marks leaked. Have you heard it?

    It's not as good as Yeezus, at least for me. I was gonna buy Yeezus in Germany, but... 16 euro for something that looks like a blank CD? No way.

    Waiting 'til my CD arrives. ;)

    I struggled with paying for "Yeezus" but, once I took it home and listened to the songs, I knew that I'd chosen wisely.

    I have faith in Kanye with the Miley remix. He took a Justin Bieber song and remixed it and put Raekwon on the track and it was awesome.

    Love the first half of the album, but the Black Skinhead video was terrible.. What the fuck Kanye?

    I know this has been news for a long time, but "Bound 2" is officially the next single off Yeezus. It was released last month. And there's a tour now.

    Btw, other than the "Blood on the Leaves" performance from the VMAs, Kanye and Charlie Wilson performed "Bound 2" with the Roots and a boy choir in Late Night, and it's the liveliest and happiest public Kanye performance he's done since the Graduation days.

    ^That's okay, I guess. I think Blood On The Leaves would be much better. Plus, I'd be much happier, it's my favorite track of the year. After the VMA performance, I was kinda sure Blood on the Leaves would be the second single. I guess I was wrong. The Bound 2 performance wasn't really that great as people made it out to be.

    "Bound 2" makes a great single, I think. Imagine people hearing the song, buying or downloading "Yeezus" afterwards and, then, being thrown for a loop when they hear "On Sight" for the first time

    EDIT: but, seriously, it might grab the attention of people who really liked Kanye's first two albums but none of the subsequent ones

    And then they get to I Am A God.

    And they're like... ''what the fuck did I download?'' [​IMG]
