New Slaves (Live on SNL) Based on his tabloid per­sona, one could be for­given for writ­ing off Kanye West as a cartoon buf­foon, whereas in truth he is a cartoon buf­foon slash mu­si­cal ge­nius. The rap­per, nick­named Yeezy, has ti­tled his forth­com­ing al­bum Yeezus, which gives us a fair idea where his head is cur­rently at. And here he is dy­ing for our sins again: a mil­lion­aire su­per­star, who re­cently spent $90,000 on a T-shirt, com­par­ing his lot in life to that of a slave. (Need­less to say, it’s ac­tu­ally rather good!)
