Kanye West Plays “Yeezus” at Design Miami/Basel

20130613cklist-promo4-1

Kanye Holds Court in Basel: Yesterday, after taking in the fair at Art Basel Kanye hosted an impromptu listening party — built “via Instagram and a few cryptic emails” — of his new album “Yeezus” at Design Miami/Basel. In the process, he also delivered a long speech about his art world inspirations as well as the current state of art.

“What I want people to understand about sampling and producing is that it’s really similar to — and I know this is obvious what I’m going to say, because I’m a black guy so I’m gonna name the ‘most obvious artist in the world’ — Warhol, but it’s very similar to the way Warhol would appropriate a Campbell’s Soup can is the way I would sonically appropriate a Ray Charles sample or a Michael Jackson sample.”
