Kanye, never shy of his creativity, presents his new song by projecting his face across different buildings in 66 cities across the globe. The cities include: Los Angeles, Toronto (CAN), Miami, Berlin (GER), San Fransico, and his hometown of Chicago. Check some of the footage below!
The rap-conscious public first heard of Pusha T after he formed a group called Clipse with his brother Malice in 1992. His rapidfire cadence is as striking now as it was then, but his circumstances have changed dramatically. As he put it in a freestyle on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 radio show, “Malice found religion” and is rapping no longer. Pusha himself was signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music in March 2010 and lent a slew of topnotch verses to Yeezy’s masterpiece, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Now a few months away from his debut under Ye’s tutelage, My Name Is My Name, (which is either a clever reference to The Wire or Exodus 3:14), Pusha is looking to generate hype in the streets with a mixtape and he does this and more on the absolutely grimy Wrath of Caine.
Toronto’s most anticipated hip hop festival, October’s Very Own is coming real soon, and I’m damn excited! I can’t stop thinking and guessing who’s going to come as surprise guests, so I decided to put together a realistic list of the 10 artists that I expect. We can obviously expect that I’m On One will be performed along with Rick Ross, and I’m really hoping that The Weeknd will perform High For This and Wicked Games sometime during their set.
A new single from Odd Future’s sole R&B singer Frank Ocean, means a lot more than it would a while back. With his single ‘Novacane’ getting radio play, along with his feature and production credits on the upcoming Jay Z and Kanye West project Watch The Throne, he is definitely reaching the level of stardom he so very much deserves. Listen to ‘Thinking About You’ below.
I’ve tried to avoid the “Where’s Earl?”, Waldo-like search by blogs and stalkers, because while some people enjoy the ignorant gossip, I only care about the music. And for all the other fans out there, this is my gift to you. Continue reading
Kanye West released his video for ‘All of the Lights’ off of his latest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Directed by the legendary Hype Williams, it also features Rihanna & KiD CuDi. It’s a great video, but hit the jump to see where they stole the idea from… Continue reading
Welp, that’s it. The year 2010 is over, and what a rollercoaster it was. We lost many great musicians (R.I.P. Guru, Teddy Pendegras, Jay Reatard, Gregory Isaacs), but just as many stood up to take their place as the leaders of the next generation (Justin Bieber, Jackie Evancho, Odd Future). T.I. got out of jail, made a terrible album, and then went back to jail. Lil’ Wayne and Gucci Mane got out of jail, while Lil Boosie got invited to stay a little longer. Erykah Badu & Ke$ha got naked, and Miley Cyrus acted like a bitch. Justin Timberlake did some acting, and Joaquin Phoenix did some rapping. Don’t ask or tell about Lady GaGa’s dress. M.I.A. got in trouble for eating truffle fries, and Willow Smith suffered a neck injury. Kanye West had a busy year: he apologized to George Bush and Taylor Swift, then un-apologized to Taylor, never apologized to Matt Lauer at all, made a movie, showed his dick, and joined Twitter. Susan Boyle emerged from the depths of… somewhere dark… and Bruno Mars failed. Cee Lo said “fuck” a lot, and Jay Electronica drank Mountain Dew. Pomplamoose made commercials, and Earl was kidnapped/died/incarerated/no one is really sure. Taylor Swift sold 1 million (bad) albums in a week, Eminem sold 3 million in 52 weeks, and no fucks were given. Oh, by the way, Lil B looks like Jesus. Phew. Glad that’s over. Continue reading
