After multiple years of shying away from cameras and interviews, music’s most outspoken and polarizing artist Kanye West is returning to the limelight as he been spotlighted in past weeks performing for late night shows and giving candid in-depth interviews. This afternoon, we have been gifted with part one of four of West’s sit down with BBC Radio 1‘s Zane Lowe as the living legend talks about crafting the most critically-denounced album of his catalog: Yeezus. Lowe and West converse about bringing Yeezus into fruition, his mindstate while crafting the album, and pushing the boundaries of artistic design. Watch part one above, the remainder of the interview will be released in coming days.
Pay attention to when West name drops famed European fashion designer Hedi Slimane towards the closing seconds of the interview. Fiery!
