Yeebus - m.o.d. 2018 ©️ A.Swapp

I call it "mouthful of diamonds" . . . . . . . or maybe "Yeebus"

West is the pop star for our morally implicated times; an instinctive consumer with a mouthful of diamonds and furtive bad conscience, a performer who lives the American dream to its fullest with a creeping sense of the spiritual void at its heart. [MBDTF] captures that essence in full. It's an utterly dazzling portrait of a 21st-century schizoid man that is by turns sickeningly egocentric, contrite, wise, stupid and self-mocking.
