In his new album, "Yeezus", Kanye expresses the incoherence of blackness which Frantz Fanon describes as a constituent element of the black experience. According to Fanon, the black man is a toy in the hands of the white man. And in rage, he explodes. Kanye in a sense explodes. In his song, "New Slaves", he elucidates that though he enjoys a luxurious lifestyle, he is still essentially owned by the white man as he manifests in his white media executive bosses, manager, publishers, and media outputs that advertise Kanye. Throughout the centuries, though black people have "advanced" in society, slavery has been a constituent element of their identity only showing up in different forms. The second track, "Black Skinhead" portrays his rage against the society that enslaves and incarcerates black people through the "DEA teamed up with the CCA" and that murders black folks through police brutality and extrajudicial killings (refer to: www.copblock.org). Finally, in the third track, "I Am a God", Kanye uses this rage to create his inner "God", the blackened version of an, otherwise, anti-black world that Fanon describes
