"That was kind of thing, to me, that was so compelling about Kanye, and really the gist of the whole story, was that this guy is abrasive, and he is aggressive, and that he has to be, because what he wants to do is so much bigger than what everyone is expecting him to do."

Kanye West's new album, most recently titled T.L.O.P. , drops tomorrow, February 11, and whether or not you love him or understand his art, 'Ye's legacy in the hip-hop canon can't be denied.
Earlier today, Complex debuted a new 16-minute documentary on the infamous rapper, songwriter, record producer, fashion designer, and entrepreneur co-directed and co-produced by South Florida-native, New York-based music journalist Dan Buyanovsky and Armani Ortiz. Together, the two embarked on an 18-month mission interviewing prominent critics from New York Times, Billboard, Fader, XXL, and others to get their takes on West's journey and genius. In addition to their insights, the film also features past interview clips and soundbites from Kanye himself.
Check out the doc above, and get hyped for T.L.O.P., set to premiere during Kanye West's "Yeezy Season 3" show at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night.
