Hip-Hop Reacts To Kanye West’s Epic Weekend
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone when we say that Kanye West owned this past weekend. In the event that you’ve been living under a rock though, Yeezy took to 66 buildings across the world on Friday night to premiere the song and visual for “New Slaves” off his forthcoming album. On Saturday, it was confirmed that his sixth studio album would be entitled Yeezus and would be arriving in stores on June 18th. Then Saturday night, Kanye returned to Saturday Night Live to perform “New Slaves” as well as a new cut entitled “Black Skinheads.” And with that, Yeezy Season was upon us. Between the new music and genius marketing behind the Yeezus campaign, Kanye has been the talk of the town these past few days. We combed through Twitter to get the industry’s thoughts on everything that went down this weekend. Here’s what everyone had to say.
