defended Trump supporters to David Letterman and explained his reasoning for wearing the “#MakeAmericaGreatAgain
In the hour-long special for the second season of Letterman’s Netflix show, Kanye reportedly talked about his battle with bipolar disorder, his new music and long-running feud with #Drake
Letterman, who has promised in the past not to talk about #Trump
on his show, was sparring with West about the rapper’s anxiety as a man in the #MeToo
movement, when Yeezy brought up his perplexing relationship with #DonaldTrump
. “This is like my thing with Trump—we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” West said.
He then went on to explain that wearing the Trump campaign hat is “not about politics,” and he doesn’t even vote. Instead, he said he’s sticking up for Trump supporters heckled over their politics.
ALBUM: IGOR by Tyler, The Creator -
Here we go, easily one of my most anticipated albums of the year, Tyler, The Creator's 6th album, IGOR. I am very interested in Tyler's evolution since the release of his debut album, "Bastard," which featured more of a horror-core inspired style music, all the way up to his 2017 release "Flower Boy," which showed Tyler's maturity and growth in not just his character, but his music. "Flower Boy" was one of my favorite albums of 2017, so does Tyler follow through with his newest album, Igor?
Track one is "IGOR'S THEME," and is basically used to set the stage for what is to come during this musical odyssey, stating that we will indeed "feel this one." A solid opener. The 2nd track is just straight up astounding. "EARFQUAKE" blows my mind how well it works. Tyler, Charlie Wilson, and Playboi together built quite an interesting yet beautiful musical concoction. The song is mostly about Tyler talking about a lover who he needs and how she makes him feel. Easily one of the catchiest songs and one of my favorites. Track 3 is an interesting one. When I first heard "I THINK," I heard alot of Kanye West's "Stronger," both in the similarities of the instrumental and Tyler's flow. Not that this is a bad thing, as "Stronger" is a great track, as is "I THINK." On the track, Tyler ponders whether his relationship with his lover is good for him and his mental state. Another great track. After a spoken-word track from Jarod Carmichael on "EXACTLY WHAT YOU RUN FROM YOU END UP CHASING," we are lead into Track 5, "RUNNING OUT OF TIME." The title of the track accurately represents the subject matter for the track, as Tyler warns his lover that their relationship is "RUNNING OUT OF TIME." Sonically, the track is definitely pleasing, and the track is very enjoyable. Track 6, "NEW MAGIC WAND," features a grimy beat, the closest thing we've gotten to a banger on the album. Tyler tries to convince his lover not to leave him, willing to do anything to keep him. Pretty solid track overall.
