Kanye Talks Cruel Summer
Here, Yeezy talks about what inspires him artistically (getting a bit angry basics), the importance of music relating to the artwork and the process of putting together an album that features (approx) 4000 different artists. "A snapshot of what's happening in our world right now, 2012," says the Chicago rapper, producer and Kim Kardashian's beau.
With guest appearances by everyone from Jay-Z to Pusha T to Ghostface, D'Banj, Chief Keef, Mr. Hudson, Marsha Ambrosius and 2 Chainz, this is, says Kanye, "Music that you can listen to on the way to work so you can deal with your boss. Music that you listen to cos you the boss so you can deal with your employees."
"We take it real serious but we light with it too. We just want to have fun."
He also makes up a word. 'Festivalise.'
You gotta love Kanye. This is a person in love with art. Good man.
