After slavery comments backlash, Kanye decided to give us a whole new LP from what he originally intended
This past Friday Kanye put out his new album ye, which has definitely garnered him all kinds of mixed criticism. However, what we got on the final product is apparently almost completely different from what Yeezy originally intended to release.
It recently came to light in an interview with Big Boy (which can be viewed in the video below) that after the comments regarding slavery that Kanye had made while on TMZ had made him reconsider the message of his upcoming work and thus he decided to take it all back to the drawing board.
West talks about the events, saying:
“I completely redid the album after TMZ and sat there and really honed in on the words. Cause also we know now, it’s all headlines. Every bar can be used.
It’s even bars that we had about [the slavery being a choice comments], I took them all off the album. It was just too sensitive to talk about that topic and stuff.
I was like, ‘Yo, Ima just chill right now. Let’s just keep making some music.
I feel like as a son and as a family member of the world, that’s the reason the world wont let me go ’cause I’m just a family member.
They might not agree with me on certain shit, but I’m their family, I been here for 15 years, 18 years. I feel like the best thing I can do is go in the studio and keep chopping that thing that only I know how to do.”
The one place where references to what Kanye had said stay though is in the song from ye “Wouldn’t Leave”.
Keep up with music at Salute.
