    Kanye is a douche. Won’t take his music even free

    • superbelt

      Yup. Also remember: Kanye is still getting paid. Google is paying for the promotion.

    • Henri Conradie

      Imma gonna laugh at that.

  • corona10

    Noway.Can’t stand this no talent knob.Even though its free, I still dont want it. Thats how much i cant stand him. His “music” will never speak to me. Its noise.

    • Jerel Butler

      I can understand that

  • blest

    Kanye should be offering it for free. As a fan.. That albums straight cheeks. Not even touching college dropout or late registration. Not even 808s.

    • J Cav the Great

      that’s what happens when a rapper goes commercial… focus is taken away from material…sad.

      • Jerel Butler

        black skinehead and new slaves was commercial? he did something different It feels artistic I feel this time more hard hitting than previous albums

  • Jason Farrell

    Guess you can’t call kanye a g4y fish without insta-moderation.

  • Alex

    I love chvrches. great to see them get some attention.

    and no thanks on the kanye

  • J Cav the Great

    I got Yeezus free two days ago..old info here…

  • worldclassflame

    You couldn’t get me to listen to his garbage even if you paid me lol

  • Aaron

    It’s free, but not a single $@#% was given by me.

  • Chimphappyhour

    I find it hilarious that normally the US only promos get a ton of “why only the US?!?” posts but this particular one is just loaded with people who don’t want his album even for free. That is a Christmas present all by itself.

    • np6s4x

      both here and in the reviews, quite funny, i’ll take the Chvrches album though

      • Chimphappyhour

        Yup, took that and a few other tracks.

  • Justin

    Definitely not downloading the yeezus album, not even for free, can’t stand Kanye West, garbage, errogant, loud mouth and completely all about himself.

    • Jerel Butler

      enjoy not even listening to the music based on how he is as a person. yeezus was very good

      • Justin

        Oh I’m not just basing it off of him as a person, I’ve heard his music plenty. I’m not feeling his music as an artist either, and his personality really doesn’t do him any favors.

    • jfelts

      Even though it is free, I don’t even want to give the guy an extra download count. Never seen such a low life as him.

  • Jmaxku

    CHVRCHES good… really, really good, Kanye bad… very, very bad.

  • JointhePredacons

    Of course Kanye is free. Do people actually pay for his music ?

    • Henri Conradie

      Trolololololololol! Hohohohoho!

    • jfrov11

      Kanye is the 2nd biggest douche bag on the planet. 1st place goes to any member of the Westboro Baptist Church. He seriously is 1 hell of a tit sack.

    Google should have promoted Immortal Technique or Apathy not Kanye.

  • dontpanicbobby

    All I got was a listen tag. No way to download the album. Did I miss the special or is there a trick to it?
