Wow! In a move as huge as his monsterous ego and tremendous talent, Kanye West is debuting material from his new album ("New Slaves" according to rapup.com) tonight by projecting it on buildings around the world. On www.kaynewest.com there is a map of ten cities around the world, and locations and times that the video will be projected. Check out a video of the projection here in Williamsburg, Brooklyn:
The minimalistic track features a lot of the "darkness" we've been hearing about on this record. Mr. West is angry, and he would like you to know about it. The video matches the song as it's just West in black and white, vehemently delievering his lines with an intensity to match the lyrics. Some samples: "You see there's leaders, and there's followers / but I'd rather be dick than a swallower" and "Y'all bought to turn shit up? / I'm bout to tear shit down / I'm bout to air shit out / Now what the fuck they gonna say now?". Dang son.
One can only imagine what 'Ye has cooked up for tomorrow's performance on SNL!!!
