Kanye West Wins Pazz & Jop Critic’s Poll


Yeezus was recognized as the year’s best project by the world’s most celebrated music critics and writers.

Kanye West claimed the top spot in the annual Pazz & Jop poll for his sonically futuristic stadium-filling artistic offering. In addition to running away with album of the year by a wide margin, Yeezus boasts three songs in the top ten in voting for best single of the year, with “Bound 2,” “New Slaves,” and “Black Skinhead.”

Not only does Yeezy’s Pazz & Jop win give him four wins in total out of six tries, but it also makes him the poll’s most consistent and successful artist ever. Only the legendary Bob Dylan has as many wins as ‘Ye, and the self-proclaimed god tied his record with a much smaller body of work.

Congratulations to Kanye West on another award!
