Kanye and Sway hash it out like men.
Kanye stops by the Power 105 studios for a lengthy sit-down with Charlamagne Tha God and The Breakfast Club. Ye speaks on a number of topics including his creative genius, leaving Nike for Adidas, the “Bound 2” video and more. Respect to Charlamagne for keeping it 100 as well.
Kanye’s media blitz continued at the Hot 97 studios as him and his future wife sat down with Angie Martinez for a short interview. Ye speaks on his relationship with Kim, being a father, leaving Nike and more. Part 2 after the jump. Read More
Covering a soul standard, Busta and The Abstract team up with famous friends (who don’t actually rhyme on the track). Still it’s a jam for the older folk and some revivalists.
Kanye stops by Philly’s Power 99 morning show for another epic sound bite. Yeezy speaks on why he decided to include confederate flags on the Yeezus tour gear, a Yeezus sequel, “New Slaves,” Watch The Throne 2, the paparazzi and more.
The genius of well-placed satire: basic re-enactment turned awesome.
Kanye premieres the visual for “Bound 2” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, complete with horses, the Grand Canyon, and motorcycle coitus. So in other words, exactly what you were probably expecting. You can check out Kanye’s sit-down interview with Ellen after the jump. Read More
That’s that Don’t Touch Anything In The Sto’. This album sounds way better live.
Kanye’s media blitz continued this morning over on the Left Coast at the Power 106 studios. Mr. West appeared on Big Boy’s Neighborhood to speak on a number of topics including his recent engagement to Kim Kardashian, Jimmy Kimmel, run-ins with paparazzi, Kendrick Lamar and more. Ye also spits a freestyle over the “Forever” and “Clique” instrumentals around the 1:09:28 mark.
Kanye and Kim are officially engaged.
West reportedly popped the question to his better half in front of friends and family at AT&T Park in San Francisco, which he rented out for the night. Nice to see Kanye kept it lowkey and personal.
With his “Yeezus” tour kicking off last Saturday night in Seattle, we finally got a glimpse of the subsequent merchandise Kanye has in-store for his first solo tour in five years. Naturally ‘Ye teamed up with artist Wes Lang for a contemporary twist on 80s metal band logos, complete with praying skulls and Confederate flags. This certainly ain’t your older brother’s Kanye tour. More photos after the jump. Read More
“Why the hell does he need those gatekeepers?” Preach, Brother Marc. “Luxury, says who?!” This is terrific. (To be fair, Marc Ecko has a color privilege that Kanye does not have.)
