Young Artist Enters the Music Scene

808's and Hearbreak Could it be? A heartbroken Kanye West? Kanye’s new album reveals a completely new side of Kanye: the depressed middle-aged male side. Perhaps the change of heart was brought about by the recent passing of Kanye’s mother. West blames himself for her death, and the world now has one more sad, working, individual.
