Night Music: Kanye West, “Black Skinhead”

Kanye-West-Black-Skinhead-Album-ArtI posted this tune some months ago because it’s so catchy, and radical, and then there are the words.

Kanye doesn’t always make sense and isn’t always right, but he always says what he means. And in that context, this is another song where the impressionistic lyrics are brutally honest and heartfelt. Which is sometimes scary and, to my mind, admirable (even if not always defensible).

Best of all, the track is powerful and uncompromising. This is my Best cut of 2013.
