Yeezus has been one of the most talked about subjects in this year’s Hip Hop music pool. Anyone who has even a slight interest in the genre has listened to Kanye West’s sixth studio album by now and has weighed in with their opinion.
MTV recently talked to numerous headlining artists about the album as they all weighed in. First speaking with G.O.O.D. Music signee and Kanye affiliate CyHi The Prynce, Sway Calloway and Rapfix got the scoop on some of the background meaning of the album.
“A lot of people don’t know Yeezus if you break it down is: ‘Ye-Is-us,” CyHi explained via Skype. “‘Ye will let you sit there and beat yourself up about it.”
CyHi also said that he was heavily involved in the album’s creation, claiming he contributed to the writing of nine out of the 10 songs.
“I’m just in there with him, keeping him up, keeping the environment in the room,” he said. “We wrote a booklet of different things that could be put in here. The bible just wasn’t wrote by Jesus. Inspirations came from everywhere that put this whole thing together.”
Separately, MTV also spoke to numerous other artists about the project to get their take on both Yeezus and Kanye’s legacy as a musician.
“He got one of the best musical minds, I feel in my generation,” Trinidad James said.
Atlanta native 2 Chainz also weighed in on Kanye West and his creativity.
“He’s one of the forefathers of just being creative of production and just taking extra steps on not doing what everybody else is doing,” he said.
