Kanye West Debuts Yeezus Songs And Goes On Rant At Music Festival

(Radio.com) With just a little over a week out from release date (June 18), many have been wondering why Kanye West hasn't released a proper single off Yeezus yet.

At his headlining performance at New York's Governors Ball Sunday night (June 9), 'Ye revealed a few reasons. Let's just say we shouldn't be expecting "Black Skinhead," "New Slaves" or any of the new songs West debuted at Gov Ball to end up on the radio anytime soon and that's his choice.

"This is the part of the show where I start complaining about s*** justify s***, you know how it is," he started one of his signature on-stage rants during "Clique." "I'm just happy to be making music, happy to be able to perform that s*** for y'all. You know with this album we ain't drop no single to radio, we ain't got no big NBA campaign or nothing like that. S***, we ain't got no cover. We just made some real music and you know like, back when I used to make albums and s***. You know like, back when i used to make albums and s*** like couple years ago, three years ago, four years ago we'd go away and work on our album for five months or so, and we'd have to hold the album to like, August or September or 'til the perfect moment and sh*t, being like, 'I think you're gonna sell more because you have more audience and radio and s***.' Well honestly, when I listen to radio, that ain't where I wanna be no more. Honestly, at this point, I could give a f*** about selling a million records as long as I put out an album this summer that y'all can rock to all motherf***ing summer. And I don't give a f*** that the label's saying I can sell more records. And at this point, I don't really give a f*** about outside opinions. All I give a f*** about is my motherf***ing clique." more on this story
