I’m a fan of this one, it has that old school feel like an old Q-Tip record. Busta, Q, Yeezy and Wayne team up for Thank You, a track which will feature on the long awaited Cash Money record Extinction Level Event 2.

Oh boy, get your eyes ready for this one. This is brilliant, there are no other words.
Hey look everyone! It’s the new Kanye West video for Bound 2 featuring Kim K! Kanye was on the Ellen show today and let the world see it for the first time everrr.
So a few scenes are a bit “ERRR WTF” for example, 2 minutes 35 seconds in where it looks as though Kanye and Kim are actually DOING IT, is Kanye mental or…? Watch and make your own mind up.

This is SO interesting. I was driving home on Monday night through the streets of London listening to this on BBC Radio 1. The brilliant Zane Lowe sat down with the biggest ego of the century, Kanye West. They chatted about literally everything from music to fasion to Kanye being a God. It was serious.
Listen back to parts 1 and 2 here:

During the week we got to see Yeezy and Charlie Wilson perform the massive Bound 2 on Jools Holland, on Friday night we got to see another two performances, New Slaves and this one, my second favourite record from the album, Blood On The Leaves.
Kanye performed the 6 minute track with the vocoder in full effect.

Last night Jools Holland had three amazing performances on the show, 16 year old NZ talent Lorde and these two, Yeezy and Uncle Charlie performing Bound 2.
So glad this is the next single! Uhh Huh Honey.

Whilst I’m 38,000ft up in the air on my way back from Morocco, here’s my favourite record in the world right now.
This weeks pick is from Kanye’s latest offering Yeezus. As I’ve already said on here, there are a few stand out tracks from the new album, Bound 2 being my personal favourite.
From the Charlie Wilson hook, to Kanye’s flow to the overall production of this piece – it’s Hip Hop/ Kanye heaven.
Have a listen here.

Kanye’s new 10 track album Yeezus has been a big talking point this week. I was surprised to hear my friends (who aren’t avid Hip Hop or Kanye fans) also talk about this new album. There’s some common themes which reoccur when the album is mentioned:
1) Themes of racism
2) Weird and random noises
3) Kanye talking about himself in a God like form
I’m not going to talk about either of those points, though the weird noises are, as always with Kanye – very random! Instead I wanted to post up my three favourite picks: Black Skinhead, Blood On The Leaves and Bound 2.
Blood On The Leaves

I have to admit straight away, I haven’t been a huge fan of Game’s music for quite some time now, to me it got a bit samey/ boring, I was looking forward to something new and exciting from him.
With his 5th album coming out on Tuesday I’ve finally heard something worth posting up and talking about. Jesus Piece featuring Kanye and one of my favourite rappers of all time, Common.

I won’t lie to you guys, I didn’t like Diamonds on my first few listens. It has to be said though that it has really grown on me and with Yeezy jumping on the remix, I think it just shot up in my books even more.

Following on from Cruel Summer Kanye gets us ready for the Winter with this shorter trailer by Austin Christianson.

Kanye has had his ups and downs hasn’t he, that wasn’t so much a question, more a statement. The rapper sometimes say’s the wrong thing (or something which us normal folk deem wrong in some form), he sometimes posts some weird videos and photos (yes, those photos) but he never fails to let us down with his music.
White Dress will feature on RZA’s Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack and is produced by RZA and Ye. This is true Hip Hop bliss, the production is sublime and the flow from Yeezy is nothing short of world class.
This montage of pictures is also amazing, even though this isn’t a video of any sort it takes you on a great journey.

This video shows Kanye break down the brand new Cruel Summer album by G.O.O.D Music. I would love to get inside Kanye’s head for just the day, I can just imagine I would feel fried from all the strange thoughts and goings on.

It’s a Thursday, nothing new there, but wait, there’s a brand new Kanye West track to get your ears around. From the forthcoming album Cruel Summer Kanye teams up with Kells for this banger To The World – a very uplifting anthem.
