Win Tickets To Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour

990_485_Yeezus

Beyond his production craftsmanship, his lyrical prowess, and his enticing, reckless swagger, Kanye West’s greatest talent is his unpredictability, and he demonstrated it in the biggest way yet with Yeezus, the groundbreaking record that turned hip hop’s sound on its head. At a time when the mainstream was still somewhat sensitive to the abstraction that bubbles below it, Kanye. Yeezus is a record from the near future, and in arriving early it’s allowed us to skip all the riff raff that would have come in between. Hip hop artists, in fact all popular musicians, now have a new direction to strive for.

For all his acclaim, the global audience has scarcely gained a true understanding of the creative spirit behind everything Yeezy does. In his recent interview with BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe, fans finally got an idea of what he strives for, and why so much of his passion manifests itself in sheer force. Through a few choice quotes, West articulated his view on art, its virtue, and its business underbelly.

At this moment in time, Kanye West is more of an icon than he’s ever been. 2013 has been an incredibly fortuitous year for him, and thereby for hip hop in general, and it’s all culminating in a tour that promises to be a spectacle worthy of the creativity it represents. The Yeezus tour kicks off on October 19th, and we’re giving you the chance to win tickets to the performance closest to you.
