Kanye West has shared his love for Steve Lacy’s new album, calling the internet guitarist “one of the most exciting people on the planet.”
Lacy released her second solo album, “Gemini Rights,” on Friday (July 15). Many artists have received great praise and love.
Lacy wrote on Instagram to thank her fans for their support: gemini rights are outttt. this feels so surreal. I can’t explain it. it’s a new feeling.
“I think I will be able to tell in a few months. But for now I am going to enjoy this news. Thank you guys for all the love and support, I promise it will not go unnoticed.”
In the comments section, the likes of Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) and Kelela shared their love for the record, while Kanye also stopped by to praise Lacy and the album.
Calling ‘Gemini Rights’ “beautiful,” Ye said he thinks Lacy is “one of the most exciting people on the planet.”

In their review of “Gemini Rights”, NME wrote: “With such a vibrant musical palette at her disposal, it might be easy for Lacy to stick to the lyrics and let the music do the talking. But ‘Gemini Rights’ recalibrates the story behind ‘Apollo XXI’: on that album – especially ‘Like Me’, ‘N Side’ and ‘Playground’ – it was Lacy’s mission. find yourself and prioritize pleasure.
“However, in ‘Gemini Rights,’ he begins to understand that all is not as it seems.”
Kanye, for his part, will no longer headline this year’s edition of Rolling Loud in Miami, with Kid Cudi – an old colleague of West’s, with whom the controversial rapper shares a past – confirmed as his replacement.
The poster change has been announced this afternoon (July 17), and Rolling Loud organizers have said it was “due to circumstances beyond our control”. West has yet to comment on canceling his performance, with a statement from festival co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler noting that West “certainly will not be performing anymore.”
