There Won’t Be a Yeezus Sequel

The Daily Beast did a nice profile on record guru Rick Rubin and he expanded a bit on his role in the creation of Kanye’s latest LP among other things. The big takeaway from the article seems to be that Kanye cut a bunch of songs from the album at Rubin’s behest and the producer does not deny the possibility that we could see a sequel or continuation of Yeezus at some point.

When he came to you with the record, did you have a sense of what needed to be done?
Initially, he thought there were going to be 16 songs on the album. But that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, “Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half.” That was one of the first breakthroughs. Kanye was like, “That’s what I came here today to hear! It could be 10 songs!”

So there might be another Yeezus in the pipeline?
Might be.

My money says that shit is not going to happen. If we know anything about Kanye, it’s that he’s not going to do anything you expect him to do. Just the mere fact that Rubin has said this in public means it won’t happen. That’s not to say we won’t ever hear those songs or they won’t end up somewhere else, but I highly doubt he’s going to put out anything that lives in the same creative space as his previous work.

    Here’s the thing tho:

    Who caused more oppression, stolen more continents, exterminated more races, setup legal systems to capture/torture/humiliate and/or defile/deface races?

    Whose responsible for racism/classism/elitism and otherwise hatred of the way of the world. The admonishment of good and the actualization of evil. Who sanction the world wars?

    So, when you say I have hatred, you get a blank stare from your own skin kiddo.

    And go head and walk it off. I’ll get an olive branch from SIKH and pole you in the eye with it.

    Bastard.

    Skin tone made from the most high silks and melinan from the kingdom. Our music let you rock sideways and provoke you to think and push.

    From our walk to our lingo, we keep the world poppin.

    Meanwhile, I’m poppin tags, they poppin a kelidoscopic spin on history.

    We know who we are. Impervious to the smear campaign on our lineage. Fact of the matter we don’t care. We don’t need the history books to reflect that. Because it don’t matter. Only one life to live. And we got it going.

    The blood of the creator himself runs deep working my veins. That devil got a hold on em. Not us. Exonerated.
