Tonight at New York’s Milk Studios, Kanye West played his upcoming LP Yeezus (June 18th, Def Jam) for an audience of famous friends, fans and models. Played “fucking loud,” the album has ten songs and was “executive produced” by Rick Rubin. According to West, one of those, which he called “Hold My Liquor,” almost didn’t make the album. Placed after “New Slaves” at the record’s middle, it features both Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Chief Keef, who sings this refrain: I can’t control my niggas, and my niggas they can’t control me. Relatively short on rapping guests, Yeezus also features Chicago’s King Louie, on a song West called “Send It Up.”
After playing Yeezus twice, with a soaked-through shirt and a smile on, Kanye hopped on the mic. Watch below, via Miss Info.
