Song Of The Week: Kanye West ‘bound 2’


Kanye West moves his own mountains at Toyota Center

A loop pinched from an old soul song called by the Ponderosa Twins Plus One collides with a bit of Norman Whiteside and a come-on by Brenda Lee. These bits of music dont necessarily fit but West forces them together and hammers on the pads to get that distinctive trampoline-jounce sound that a MPC generates. Bound 2 is a love song, but an extremely crude one, and its a fitting conclusion to an album that is much more brutal than any in Wests discography. In 2004, West used his sampler to murmur, soothe and hypnotize; a decade later, hes slapping his fans upside the head with music. Just like a fiddler equally comfortable playing an etude or burning up a hoedown, hes got range. Kanye West is a master of an instrument that many music fans still dont acknowledge as one a true virtuoso of the MPC.

“I think my next album is going to be eight songs. It`s just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can`t take anything else away. Yeezus was very, very designed,” West said. “I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here.

People say a design is the point where you cant take anything else away. Yeezus was very, very designed. I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here.

Yes. Son me because I am the sun and I will shine bright,” West said during his tour rant. “And when I don’t have as much money as a billionaire and when I don’t have the factories that, that dude has over there, what I do have is my voice. Ain’t no corporation that can take me away from my voice and I’m going to scream at the top of my (expletive) mountain as loud as I want.” The rap mogul spoke about how Nike’s refusal to let him obtain royalties from his products because he is not an athlete caused him to sign with Adidas.

But it also felt sincere and ultimately positive. He referenced his outbursts and overall persona as that balance between patience and attack. It was also a fitting description for the show. There were big, defining pieces and darker, more introspective elements. There was darkness and light, party tracks and messages, beauty and filth.Yeezus and Jesus literally. (West finally removed his mask when white Jesus appeared before a searing Jesus Walks.) The man who moved a mountain.
