Singer-songwriter Dan Sultan has clashed with Tasmanian senator Jacqui Lambie and Attorney-General George Brandis on Q&A over the best Kanye West pre-2013 album.
Senator Brandis has been outspoken on the topic for many years, especially following the release of West’s most divisive album yet, The Life Of Pablo.
“Kanye released Yeezus around about the same time I was offered the role of Attorney-General” he said.
“Granted, I was going through some big changes in my life, but I don’t think it was quite at the level of my Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
Dan Sultan, who has in the past actively put his support behind ‘College Drop Out’ says he doesn’t necessarily agree that the synth heavy fifth-studio album, MBDTF, was anywhere near the Louis Vuitton backpack-era Kanye.
“Pardon the pun, but Jesus walked on that album”
“The gospel choirs, the content – everything was a lot more pure – this is how artists and musicians feel”
Brandis, who kept interrupting Sultan during his most crucial points, says while he respects the opinion of a practicing musician on this issue – majority of Australia disagrees with him, and so does most of the silver-haired caucasian baby boomers in Parliament.
“Dan, frankly and respectfully, if you don’t think Nikki Minaj’s verse in Monster is the most fire thing to come out of the Roc-a-Fella dynasty – I would have to notify you that there are rocks in your head”
Jacqui Lambie was quick to point out that anyone who doesn’t think 808s and Heartbreaks was the best Kanye Album of all time doesn’t know what real love-making music is.
