Guess what /mu/? Kanye West is planning on picking up where David Bowie left off and continue David Bowie's legendary work.
What do you think of this /mu/?
Their song writing style is totally different
Bowie was all weird stories and metaphors and stupid shit
Kanye just raps about his life and being him and other stupid shit
I guess it'd just be weird if kanye tried to write lyrics about something other than his direct personal experiences.
That's not too common in rap
i will finish what you started
He hero worships the bad guy from the old movies to the point that he even dresses like him. He even kept the burnt helmet from the old bad guy and tells it that he "Will finish what you started".
He also throws massive tantrums when things don't go his way.
I think in this source they are correct. Kanye has stated that Bowie is one of his main influences, and people mocked those who first posted links saying Kanye West and Justin Bieber were collaborating on an album together but that turned out to be true. I believe this.
i'd believe that he's been inspired by bowie
i don't believe he's going to make an album full of bowie covers when he has an album coming out in 4 weeks that he probably only started writing last week
>He also throws massive tantrums when things don't go his way.
bowie kept himself in rock like kanye stayed in hip hop.
and when bowie started doing weird shit like drum and bass no one liked it.
the only exception to bowie making rock music was stuff like ambient tracks in the berlin trilogy, which technically was enos work.
I woudld actually like to see what he does with African Night Flight and We Are The Dead.
Bonus points: Turning the intro to the Serious Moonlight rendition of Station To Station into a beat.
Pusha-T is Iggy:
He's this super-talented, raw-ass dude who doesn't quite get the same levels of exposure as Ye. That said, he and Ye are bros, and Yeezy always tries to place him in the spotlight.
Justin Vernon is Eno:
He's a graceful, smart musician who does his own thing and has his fingers in a couple dozen projects. His signature sounds are used so extensively in Yeezy's work, one could question who the real talent is.
>Justin Vernon is Eno
>singer with handful of features on two albums is comparable to the sound designer and producer of the entire Berlin trilogy and someone who kept prolific in his own career
