A pair of Ye cuts have been given official lyric videos.
Late Monday, Kanye West shared lyric videos for "Violent Crimes" and "All Mine" featuring the same aesthetic found on the seven-track album's Wyoming-set cover art. Catch both new videos below.
Ye arrived as the second in West's series of weekly G.O.O.D. releases, a marathon of production that began with Pusha-T's superb DAYTONA last month. After Ye, the quality of existence in this otherwise brutal universe was improved dramatically with the drop of West and Kid Cudi's first full-length collaborative album Kids See Ghosts. Through it all, unfortunately, West hasn't really explained his decision to publicly embrace symbols and voices associated with Trumpism in the lead-up to these albums' month-dominating release strategy.
Thus far, this West era hasn't resulted in any music videos or visuals. West's most recent music video, for the Life of Pablo cut "Fade," was directed by Eli Linnetz and starred G.O.O.D. Music's own Teyana Taylor. The G.O.O.D. 2018 new release marathon ends with Taylor's new album this Friday.
"I think it came from me just going against mass opinion and I was able to find my voice, my voice," West told Big Boy at the Ye listening event in Wyoming earlier this month. "I just had to stand in front of that board every morning and ask myself, 'Do these songs truly make me happy? Are these songs I want to play back? Do these songs make me cry?'" The album ultimately opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
