T-minus 10 days until Kanye’s highly anticipated new album Waves will be released (along with season three of his fashion line). The debut of Yeezy’s latest LP is set to take place in Madison Square Garden, with the event streamed in theaters in 25 other countries. Tickets for showings in US theaters are not yet available (*cue sadness and frustration*).
As I impatiently wait for the debut of Yeezy’s “best album of all time” (featuring fire artists such as A$AP Rocky, Chance the Rapper and Earl Sweatshirt), I’d like to share with you my #1 favorite song from each of his past LPs.
1. The College Dropout (’04) – All Falls Down
2. Late Registration (’05) – Gold Digger
I had to go with this middle school throwback. Touch The Sky comes in a close second though.
3. Graduation (’07) – Good Life
4. 808s & Heartbreak (’08) – Heartless
5. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (’10) – Lost In The World
Honestly it was difficult to choose just one song because this entire album is insanely fantastic. I wanted to pick All Of The Lights to support my girl Ri Ri, but I have to go with Lost In The World. Yeezus and Bon Iver (one of my all time favorite artists) collaborated to create such a uniquely interesting sound.
6. Watch The Throne (’11 collaboration with JAY Z) – Gotta Have It
Just look at that power duo. Look at them.
7. Yeezus (’13) – Blood On The Leaves
