Kanye West premiered his new LP, 808s & Heartbreak, at a Los Angeles loft on Tuesday night, in an event that featured more than 700 guests and a special performance art piece by Vanessa Beecroft. According to
Rollingstone.com, "All vocals were sung and treated with the electro
'auto-tune' effect. But there was no rapping or overt sampling, just
emotional waves of electronic sound, beats and occasional strings."
Once the record was done playing, West appeared alongside the 40 models in Beecroft's performance and explained, "These are pieces of real life that I'm putting out for people to judge. It's from my heart. I don't give a F— if someone rates it 'hot' or 'not.' I'm here to bring positivity that cannot be judged."
West added a bit of stunning news as well: expect yet another full-length in June.
