Source – Kanye West says performing on his Yeezus tour is similar to going to war.
The 36-year-old claimed in a recent interview that he is risking his life onstage and compared his musical antics to that of a police officer or soldier.
The rapper explained that he could ‘slip’ during one of his complex routines on stage and that he is putting his ‘life at risk, literally’.
The All Of The Lights singer told SaturdayNightOnline.com: ‘Like, I’m just giving of my body on the stage.
I’m putting my life at risk, literally!’
Kanye went on to explain: ‘When I think about when I’m on the Can’t Tell Me Nothing, and Coldest Winter moment, like that mountain goes really, really high.

Nobody, and I mean nobody, loves Kanye West more than Kanye West. I can honestly say I’ve never heard someone ramble like Kanye. He’s the only person who can talk about finances, elephants and slaves in the same sentence. He’s great like Michelangelo AND Walt Disney. Interesting combination. The icing on the cake was obviously Kanye comparing his concert performances to being a police officer or a soldier in war. I wish I could say I was surprised by this, but every time you doubt Kanye, he proves just how big of an asshole he really can be. Hey Kanye: Walt Disney is dead. You can’t work with him. Get over it.
This Tuesday, Kanye West released his newest album, Yeezus. After reading the blow jobs it was getting from critics I had to see what it was all about. Admittedly I like all of this dudes albums, even 808’s & Heartbreaks. It sucks that he’s an arrogant asshole, but if I was that good at something I would let people know. Hell I do now and all I’m good at is drinking. Anyways, the album is an original. That’s the best word I can use to describe it. Lyrics, production, and even the packaging are original. My favorite track hands down? Blood On The Leaves. The only downside is that it’s only 10 tracks, but odds are ill be jamming to them all summer. Another track I really like is Guilt Trip featuring Kid Cudi. Kanye’s former protege. In the song he sings “if your love me so much then why’d you let me go?” Which brings me to Indicud.
Indicud is Kid Cudi’s latest album in which he produced every track from top to bottom. Taking a page out of West’s book. I’m a huge fan of this one. Also very original in the same aspects as Yeezus. It seems as if Cudders developed his own genre on this album. My favorite track? Red Eye. Kid Cudi’s lyrics in this song are few, but the production is unreal. He calls it his version of The Chronic, by Dr. Dre. And if you’ve actually listened to it, cudi nailed it. Earlier this year cudi and west parted ways. Bringing me back to his lyrics in Guilt Trip on Yeezus. Kanye had hoped Cudi would follow his footsteps, but with the release of Indicud, he’s made a name and style all for himself.
I’m assuming there’s no bad blood between the two, and hoping for collaborations in the future, but for me these are the two best hip hop albums of the summer so far and if you’re an adult and pay for music, they’re well worth the $10 each.
