After much teasing, Kanye West is finally getting ready to release his sixth solo album Yeezus on June 18th! On the eve of his fifth musical appearance on Saturday Night Live, the 35-year-old rapper debuted his new song “New Slaves” via a visual being displayed at 66 landmarks and buildings for fans across North America, Europe, and Australia. Though they’re plenty of reasons to hate on Kanye, I have to admit that this might be the coolest thing an artist has done in awhile. In the music climate today everything is so predictable, its nice to see someone stir things up. Major props! The studio version of the single is set to feature Frank Ocean – I’d be lying if I said I’m not looking forward to it.
