Vinny Guadagnino May Have Illegally Downloaded Kanye West's 'Yeezus,' According To Instagram Photo

Kanye West 'Yeezus' an ugly, mesmerising, focused statement

Links to download Kanye's latest musical offering have sprung up all over the Internet, but few people are being as blatantly obvious about their music piracy as Guadagnino. He posted an Instagram photo to his account which seems to be an iPhone screenshot of him listening to a copy of "Yeezus" apparently downloaded from RapGodFathers.info, as the download information appears over the cover art. A visit to the site reveals that they have indeed been providing a download link for the album. Smooth move, Vinny. Piracy is one thing, but bragging about it is another. The comments on the photo show that many viewers have come to the same conclusion, with one user remarking, "All the money url u have and u download the leaked version lol.

West imagines himself as King Kong, a purloined white woman in his arms, dodging bullets and missiles at the top of the skyscraper. As he does, he sounds just as horrified (and fascinated) by miscegenation as any Civil Rights-era Southern sheriff. His is the voice of a genie liberated from a bottle, upending a staid social structure, simultaneously exhilarated and frightened by freedom.

Music Review: Yeezus, Kanye West

Consider the spare, downtempo ''Hold My Liquor,'' which brings together Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and the quintessentially hard Chicago rapper Chief Keef, momentarily dropping his tough-guy facade, or ''Blood on the Leaves,'' which (somewhat questionably) appropriates Nina Simone's take on Billie Holiday's lynching ballad ''Strange Fruit'' to narrate West's own bad-woman blues. Meanwhile, shout-outs to French pastries (the already-iconic line ''Hurry up with my damn croissants!'') and Yeezy-minted languages (''I be speaking Swaghili'') bring welcome moments of levity. The album ends with two tracks that showcase West's diametric talents. ''Send It Up'' is a party-starting monster, all blaring sirens and a rubbery remix-ready beat made for dystopian club kids. Then closer ''Bound 2'' flips the script, delivering a sweet, soul-sampling stunner that would have felt more at home on The College Dropout than Yeezus.
