Music Review | Kanye West: The Life of Pablo

G.O.O.D Music | Score: B+
Controversy. Craziness. Carefree. All of the above can be used to describe the process leading up to Kanye West’s latest project. Me, being the Kanye fanboy that I am, was more than excited when the album FINALLY dropped and could forgive this album being almost a year late. From a musical standpoint, Kanye returned to his roots, allowing his A1 music production skills to shine. The beats are on point, arranging from gospel, to spacey, to bangers all throughout. My only issue with the album are some of the wonky lyrics on it. Kanye has never been the strongest lyricist, but lines like “Now if I fuck this model. And she just bleached her asshole. And I get bleach on my T-shirt. I’mma feel like an asshole” are unforgivable. Regardless, this album gave me what I was looking for and lived up to the hype, so this is worth a listen for any hip hop fan.
