Yeezus season is upon us! Although Kanye West‘s latest album leaked last Friday, today’s official release date has created a warm and fuzzy feeling that we can only imagine a Kanye Christmas would feel like. But just like the man himself, the record is quite polarizing. Here’s a snapshot of the rap community’s reaction to Yeezus as expressed through the wonders of Twitter. God speed.
1. Golden-era rap icons are not down with the Yeezus vibe.
2. Yeezus works if you’re prepping a studio session.
