After failed playback at an album listening session for his forthcoming project, Yeezus, Kanye—who wasn’t too fond of the sound guy for the screw up—grabbed the mic and performed an acapella of “New Slaves” from the LP which arrives in stores on Tuesday.
UPDATED: Read a transcript of a quick speech Kanye gave in Switzerland before previewing Yeezus. He criticizes the aesthetic of the Youtube player, talks about his experience in art school and his “I fight to push culture forward”.
“[I hate YouTube because] the player is so ugly, and it’s presented in such a terrible manner. I want everything I do to be presented in an art context, as this is a form of sonic art.
