Even if you're a fan of his music, it's easy to write off Kanye West's numerous public rants this year--whether at his concerts, another artist's listening party, or via Twitter--as mere publicity stunts, aimless babbling, or whatever. But if you read between the lines and actually think about the topics he's been bringing up during the Yeezus album cycle--including in his music--and especially if you paid attention to his interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, it's increasingly obviously that writing Kanye's rants off as such is in fact a lazy misrepresentation of what he's been trying to do.

Further proof of this emerged last night when Kanye sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to clear the...

Following on the heels of their highly publicized Twitter feud, Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West are set to either reconcile or take the feud to another level face-to-face on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight. Be sure to tune in, as it seems very unlikely that we won't get at least a few classic Kanyeisms out of this appearance.

In a new interview, Rick Rubin stated that Kanye West recorded enough music for another full album while working on Yeezus. This should all be taken with a grain of salt considering how much material Kanye records for each album that never sees the light of day.
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!”

I think you got to make your case. Seventh grade, I wanted to be on the basketball team. I didn’t get on the team, so that summer I practiced. I was on the summer league. My team won the championship; I was the point guard. And then when I went for eighth grade, I practiced and I hit every free throw, every layup, and the next day I looked on this chart, and my name wasn’t on it. I asked the coach what’s up, and they were like, “You’re just not on it.” I was...

The Huffington Post has written a well thought out article detailing the rise Kanye West, how he has become the most "egotistical" man in music, the lyrical messages behind "Black Skinhead" and "New Slaves" and more. If you've got a spare ten minutes, I highly suggest giving this a read.
And for as miserable as his wealth has made him by this point (see "Hit the mall, pick up some Gucci/ Now ain't nothing new but your shoes" from 2011's "Murder to Excellence"), he anticipated this back in 2003 in the College Dropout days. Despite being more narratively framed and mildly worded, "All Falls Down" is very thematically similar to "New Slaves" a decade prior: "Shine because they hate us/...
