Kanye Debuts New Music For Facebook Employees
As the summer comes to end , the anticipation continues to build for Kanye West’s newest album entitled Good Ass Job.
In what many over the net are called “Kanye Unplugged”, the staff of Facebook in Palo Alto, California, was treated to a brief preview of Kanye West’s newest material.
"I've been writing new stuff for the new album and I've just got a couple raps that I really like, so I thought it'd be cool just to say them for you all," West said to the Facebook employees. "All y'all turn your phones off."
While standing on a table reciting his material, Kanye essentially gave the Facebook staff a spoken word preview of the album.
"This is actually a bit more like a poem," West said at the top of "Lost," a song about love gone wrong.
"You're my devil/ You're my angel/ You're my heaven/ You're my hell," he sneers at one point, then goes on more angrily: "Lost in the plastic life/ Let's break out of this fake-ass party/ Turn this into a classic night."
"Chain Gang"Â is what many are calling classic Kanye with lines like “My teeth already white/ You gonna make me floss for nothing," and "They try to tell me aliens built the pyramids/ I swear, life's a b***h on a pyramid" )
"It took me 33 years of my life to write [this]. It means a lot to me, and it's called 'Mama's Boyfriend,'" West said of another song, as the room grew quiet. "There's a lot of use of the N-word, but I'm allowed to use it.
Afterwards, the rapper blogged about the experience.
“Many times in life I’ve had to deal with moments of doubt. And as it’s been a minute since I’ve performed any fresh material in front of an audience, this could’ve been one of those moments… but it wasn’t,” Kanye wrote. “Your energy was a gift so electric, so genuine, that it really helped me give my best. The energy was so inspiring I had to keep going!”
