Kanye West’s personal life is often so tumultuous that it sometimes threatens to overshadow his musical accomplishments. The extreme hubris, the hostile attitude toward the press, the penchant for all-caps Twitter rants, the tabloid fodder than comes with dating a Kardashian—it's almost enough to make one forget how he actually made his name. That is, until he drops a new record. It's almost always the musical event of the year. Such was the case with Yeezus, a rather dark entry for a summer album and yet still managed to be the music blasting at stoplights and pool parties all season long. Within 24 hours of its release, Twitter was overrun with people quoting the more outlandish lyrics and suddenly West was either appearing as the musical guest on every popular late night show on TV or fighting with the host. It was exactly what the public needed to remember Kanye-the-artist as opposed to Kanye-the-cartoon-character. West will play what's likely the only room in town big enough to contain both his sound and his ego. Rapper Kendrick Lamar—a headline grabber in his own right—will open the show.
