Pusha’s keeping awfully busy. On top of juggling presidential duties over at Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint, prepping the release of his highly-anticipated album King Push, he’s also looking to drop Darkest Before Dawn — the album before the album. That’s right, Pusha Ton is reportedly releasing an album before King Push, and it’s coming sooner than you think. According to Noisey, Pusha says that Darkest will be out December 18th and features production from Kanye West, Puff Daddy, Timbaland, Baauer, Q-Tip, and Nashiem Myrick. Read what he has to say about the forthcoming project after the jump.
Vic Mensa and Kanye West’s aggressive new visuals for their collaborative single “U Mad” perfectly match the harsh vibes the music. Deep within some mystery, dimly-lit room, Yeezy slouches out from the darkness brandishing a crowbar, while Mensa starts a riot, writhes in a straightjacket, and stares down a bull. Watch the wild visuals for “U Mad” after the jump.
In a recent interview with French media outlet Clique TV, Kanye West discussed many of his usual talking points; race, class, fashion, corporations, Drake, the state of pop and rap music, the quality of North West’s toys, etc. As usual, it’s worth a listen. It’s over a half hour, so go make yourself a sandwich and sit back comfortably. Check out the full interview after the jump.
Big Sean’s much anticipated third studio album Dark Sky Paradise drops today and to tease at some new music the Detroit player is sharing a freestyle entitled “Me, Myself & I” (it’s over Beyonce’s song of the same name.) Needless to say, Big Sean goes in, dropping bars. Rumor has it Sean also disses Kendrick Lamar. Sneak dissing still hot in 2015? Hopefully not. Listen to Big Sean’s “Me, Myself & I” freestyle after the jump.
