If you are one of the few people that actually waited until today to get a copy of Kanye West's new album, Yeezus, you might not be ready for this... After debuting New Slaves (along with Black Skinhead) on Saturday Night Live, and projecting the single on buildings across the world, K. West decided that was enough publicity.
To quote the man himself, "I gotta a new strategy, it's called no strategy. And I gotta a way to sell more music, it's called make better music." You really can't argue with that.
I'm still absorbing the album as a whole, but New Slaves, has got everything you want from Kanye: menacing beat, conscious lyrics and raw emotion.
Chicago's very own Brenmar (I'll cut him some slack for moving to NY), released his "club edit" this morning, slowing it down a bit and giving it away for the dj's to spin.
Don't sleep on this one, it'll only be up for a few days.
