#iTunesSounds: Kanye West – “Ye” – June 1, 2018
As the leader of G.O.O.D. Music, Kanye West is in charge of marketing for an entire team of quality artists including himself. The 2018 theme is seven-track albums for releasing throughout the summer for the whole crew all executive produced by West himself. He’s in Jackson, Wyoming putting together the music. West’s personal album is the second one in the string of releases. As we’ve come to expect from ‘Ye, the music is a bit scattered at times especially early in the album. By the time we reach “Wouldn’t Leave,” Kanye settled into his bag delivering the type of sample-infused production that made him a star musically early in his career.
