Now’s Your Chance To Write Lyrics For Kanye West
Kanye West‘s most recent albums, Yeezus and The Life Of Pablo, have invited glowing reviews, and rightly so. They’re complicated, confrontational pieces of work that have many layers to unpack and analyze. But they’re also his weakest lyrical offerings — TLOP in particular — so many of the Kanye complaints over the past three years have centered on his mediocre lyrical output. Well now’s your chance to pick up where Rhymefest left off and try your hand as a Kanye ghostwriter — and it’s for a good cause.
West is set to appear on Metamorphoses, a compilation album from anti-poverty charity Global Citizen. Mumford & Sons‘ Ben Lovett is organizing the project, which in addition to West will feature The National and Ellie Goulding. As for where you come in: The lyrics to the album’s 12 songs are from public submissions. So you can head right here to try your hand at an inspirational story worthy of West.
Submissions are open until March 31, and the album is due this fall.
Watch a trailer for the project below.
