Kanye West Says Fatherhood Changes His Approach to Making Music
Kanye West has been one of the first guests on the new Late Night hosted by Seth Meyers. Now that his Yeezus tour is done, West talked about his plans for new music, as well as fashion and other endeavors.
West’s last two releases, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Yeezus, are both on the dark side, but the rapper plans a change for his next album – one influenced by fatherhood. Regarding the type of music fans should expect, he said: "Artistic, intellectual, kid-friendly songs. You go to Europe, there's nudity on TV. So it's all in the way you raise and have an understanding and appreciation for what you're looking at and what you're hearing and why you're hearing it.”
The “Bound 2” rapper then went onto compare himself to Quentin Tarantino: "If you think about the 'Yeezus' album, cursing was definitely necessary. It'd be like if you talked to Quentin Tarantino [and asked], 'Are you gonna make G-rated movies?' It's Quentin Tarantino."
Do you think that a kid-friendly album from Kanye would work? Or could that potentially end his career?
Yeezus came out in June 2013 on Rock-A-Fella and Def Jam, reaching No. 1 in the U.S. and U.K. The release has since gone platinum in the U.S.
