Last night Monday (June 10), music artist and fashion designer Kanye West held his Yeesus album listening party at New York City’s Milk Studios. Industry insiders, bloggers, journalists, fans and tastemakers gathered inside the legendary studio which is located in the Meatpacking District. Yeezy spoke on his unconventional way of promoting his album.
Celebs in the house included Jay-Z & Beyoncé, Timberland, Q-Tip, Busta Rhymes, DJ Khaled, Tyson Chandler, and Virgil Abloh.
During the album listening session, Yeezy kept up with his plan to boycott corporations by covering up all logos on the bottles of water, liquor, equipment and more with red tape.
According to TheYBF, “As for why Kanye skipped the corporate machines hosting his listening party, he and his designer are gung-ho about turning their back on corporations who simply use artists for cash opportunities. So he’s going rogue and doing this ish by himself. Kanye also told crowdgoers he doesn’t care if the whole album leaks. He’s dropping this music his way.”
