Kanye West has a new summertime hairdo, that he got during the quarantine. And MTO News has learned that so far his fans seem to hate it.
Kanye was spotted rocking a super short "fade" when he got back from a family trip with wife Kim Kardashian to their Wyoming ranch.
The rapper-designer was photographed on July 1 sporting a fresh new hairstyle, as well as a blue face mask while outside of the Van Nuys Airport, where he hopped off a private jet.
He took the face protection off to take a phone call, and his new short face was on display. The 43-year-old has been wearing his hair in a trimmed down style for months, but now he’s had his hair shaved all around his head from several inches above his ears.
But we can't really call it a "fade", because the haircut doesn't ease into the transition.
Kanye released a new song last week which featured Travis Scott. The New York Times had this to say:
Anxiety permeates “Wash Us in the Blood,” the first song from a forthcoming Kanye West album, and one that harmonizes some of his various dissonant threads. It’s a “Yeezus”-era take on “Jesus Is King” subject matter that’s lyrically impressionistic, with nods to mass incarceration and other moral concerns. (Even Travis Scott chimes in with some lines about the death penalty). Produced by West with BoogzDaBeast, Ronny J and FnZ, the song is tense, moody, urgent and purposely sloppy at the edges. The video was directed by the artist Arthur Jafa, who used West’s “Ultralight Beam” to soundtrack his devastating short film “Love Is the Message, the Message Is Death.” Jafa’s video collage of trauma and exuberance remains effective here, but where “Ultralight Beam” had a swinging, tragic grandeur, “Wash Us in the Blood” feels like a shrieking alarm.
