    It's incredibly ironic how artists reach their peak once they've fallen off the deep end. While we were all consumed by the tabloid coverage of his eccentric life, Kanye West was busy constructing his opus in Paris. This weekend, during his appearance on the SNL season finale, we finally experienced our first taste of his forthcoming LP Yeezus (pictured above, due out 6/18) in two new songs "Black Skinheads" and "New Slaves".

    Both songs bring us a brooding Kanye: on "Black Skinheads" we're haunted by an animalistic burst of furious distortion. It's brilliant.

    Yeezus is due out June 18th via Def Jam.
