808s & Podbreaks: Ye – Yeezus

With Yeezus, Ye made the loudest statement of his career. A grungy, maximalistic processing of the rapper as a fashion icon, Yeezus is a repackaging of everything hip-hop can do, how it can be sold, and how the future of music ought to sound. Grandiose in scope and outsized in personality, the album takes massive leaps toward some fundamental newness, and so often achieves on all of its goals. Our Podbreakers explore the ins and outs of one of the most divisive great rap albums out there.
