Kanye West: 808′s & Heartbreaks Style


I’ve been listening to Kanye’s Love Lockdown on repeat for the past 30 minutes. I’m trying to really get the feel of the song, and it’s deep. I actually love songs like this because we know exactly who you’re talking about… why Alexis Phifer of course. I guess he’s not loving her the way he wanted to and she’s got her love locked down, lol, jk. Anyway I love the look he chose for the album… I feel it’s appropriate for the overall feel I’m getting from the songs. The look is straight-forward, no smiles, pure classic london/american style with that urban gent twist (shoes, brooch, and shades).

His look is robotic… he’s like a modern robot.
Instead of a being made of shiny silverish metal
he’s wearing a gray suit. His posture, his look,
and the sound of the album (that whole T-pain
voice thing) is robotic.

Kanye West’s new album is entitled: 808’s & Heartbreak , and it hits stores November 25th.

You can listen to “Love Lockdown” on youtube.com while watching the video. I just listened to two more songs from albums and you can listen to them too:

“Coldest Winter”, click HERE.
“Robocop”, click HERE.

Coldest Winter… I like it enough, it’ll probably grow on me like Love Lockdown.
Robocop… WTF?

What do you all think about his style for the album and his songs?

  1. I think the style reflects Kanye’s evolution. He’s always changing and becoming a deeper, better artist to me so it’s expected that he’s gonna come out with something different each time he drops music. Love Lockdown is one of my favorite tracks and he did a mash-up of the song with Radiohead that’s even sicker than the original.

  2. I really like robocop!!!
