Because Kanye West’s new album, Yeezus, is supposedly a literal work of God, I thought it was worth a good haiku review. Surprisingly, and probably unlike most other females I would typically associate myself with, I actually really like this album and listen to it in its entirety at least once a day… not even kidding. However, that doesn’t mean I’m not about to go all out HAM on these haikus.
Yeezus by Kanye West1. On Sight Aliens invade Mixed with an unfortunate Song by Depeche Mode [*note–if you have never heard an unfortunate song by Depeche Mode, listen here. The lyrics start at 0:35, but the music video is funny enough to compensate for the ear bleed. I promise, you’ll laugh.] 2. Black Skinhead Is it me, or is This song not from “The Lion King” soundtrack? 3. I Am A God (by Kanye West and God) Thank the heavens* that Hashem was able to make This recording sesh! [*Lolz, punny] 4. New Slaves Kanye gets deep with These lyrics. Also Alvin (The chipmunk) sings some. 5. Hold My Liquor I really like this. Do not understand how he is a lightweight though…? 6. I’m In It Audio track from Kim’s sex tape plus Kanye’s good time with “Asian girl.” 7. Blood On The Leaves Beauty. Kanye got Zero’s g-ma from “Holes” to Sing it. Amirite? 8. Guilt Trip Wait, what? I just got Distracted by an Insta Of Scott Disick’s beard. 9. Send It Up What is he sending Up and please tell me why it Is not going down?????? 10. Bound 2 Best on Yeezus. Sing This to me and we can get Married. Pinky swear.

Recently, I have gone through two musical phases. In last Sunday’s post, I mentioned how I could not get out of bed because I was glued to the new JT album and pretended that I was the star of the “Mirrors” music video and acted out the entire song for a few hours. My second musical phase involves none other than The Great Gatsby’s soundtrack. It is beautiful in so many ways, and has quickly made its way to the top of my “Most Played” list on iTunes. Just in case you have not heard it, I will provide you with a thoughtful review of the album, song by song, written in haiku form.1. “Bang Bang” – will.i.am Did they have auto Tune in the 1920’s? Awks for will.i.am 2. “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)” – Fergie, Q-Tip & GoonRock A warehouse rave and Moulin Rouge give birth to Fergalicious song. 3. “Young And Beautiful” – Lana Del Rey Makes me cry every Time I hear it because I Think that I’m Daisy 4. “Love Is the Drug” – Bryan Ferry with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra Bryan Ferry, who Are you and what is this song. I don’t get it. 5. “Over the Love” – Florence & The Machine Perf for the album Makes sense in context of the Movie, finally 6. “Where The Wind Blows” – Coco O. of Quadron This makes me forget That I have OCD and I feel down to chill. 7. “Crazy in Love” – Emeli Sandé and The Bryan Ferry Orchestra I think that when I Sing along I sound just like I am Sasha Fierce 8. “Together” – The xx If you are a crack Head then you will enjoy This song. LOL 9. “Hearts a Mess” – Gotye Very eerie but Like a good song you know what I’m talking about? 10. “Love Is Blindness” – Jack White This song will play in The background when I’m giving Birth in my movie 11. “Into the Past” – Nero Weird breathing at start Better suited for Twilight Or a porno flick 12. “Kill and Run” – Sia Sia thinks she is Adele in this song but it’s OK I like it
Because this soundtrack is so incredible, go and see The Great Gatsby. Especially if you’ve read the book. If you haven’t read the book, go and see it anyways. Just don’t act like you’ve read the book because that would be pretentious and annoying.
