Kanye West feat. Kid Cudi - "Welcome to Hearbreak" (VIDEO) #tbt
In tribute to Ye's viral interview with Jimmy Kimmel last night, I wanted to rekindle a favorite Throwback Yeezy cut for Throwback Thursday. I realized that Kanye's Yeezus album would be the most scrutinized since his release of 808's and Heartbreaks in 2008; both albums fall under the category of Kanye's most extreme pursuits. This was the second track and a personal favorite from 808's: it embodies the vulnerable theme of the entire project, which of course came after the passing of West's mother. From his opening line Kanye taps into emotive contexts with his lyrics and vocals. I loved the instrumentation and connection of this song and album. Check out the video below. You're not safe in this zoo.
