21 Questions (feat. Nate Dogg) - 50 Cent
If Kanye fancies himself a god, he’s apparently an angry one. Musically, Yeezus comes off as the vengeful, demonic twin to the chill minimalism of his 808s and Heartbreak from five years ago. Both albums are steeped in electronic music but while 808s was coated in a gleaming frost, Yeezus is a rusted saw blade. Befitting that dark, aggressive, industrial sound, Kanye’s rhymes pack a vicious bite as he takes the weighty chip off his shoulder and swings it like a nail-studded bat.
