The year’s not even over and Drake is at #11 on this list, with $10.5M banked already. King Kendrick ain’t far off his heels with $9M in total. 50 Cent has also tumbled way down this list as compared to a few years ago. It looks like the young guns are taking their official place and not just some “Saved-By-The-Bell-The-New-Class” knockoffs either. Read the full list after the jump. Hat tip to TSS.
kanye west gives the best interviews of all time. OF ALL TIME! just when you think he’s gone into hiding for good, that the president throwing dirt on his name might permanently relegate him to begrudging exile, that a n*gga might be better off in Paris, he emerges more defiant than the last time.
A nationally renowned French talk show? Yea, why not. Kanye is making his Euro tour count with unique stops at places like this one. First sit through an interview with a Buddhist French author on the path to enlightenment. Then, listen to Kanye rap about Black Skinheads (starts at ~13:15 mark), strange fruit and other very American things. (I wonder what the Dalai Lama would think about “Bound 2”?)
“I know how to make ‘perfect’.” Mr. West is in the building. And he’s doing interviews. Zane Lowe sits down with Kanye for an exclusive talk with the now-public artists. After years of avoiding interviews, it seems Yeezy’s found his stride with careful press appointments like this one. It must be the Dad thing.
Yeezy’s soulful live performances are giving his Yeezus project — that of the uneven critical reception — some new life. His time with Charlie Wilson fine-tuning each song for presentation hasn’t hurt either. Check the video of him on Jools Holland performing the two singles from the album.
Kanye and Charlie Wilson go across the pond to make an appearance on Later…With Jools Holland to perform “Bound 2” off Yeezus.
Kanye admittedly gets a little loose off the Goose at Pusha’s album listening party in NYC and delivers another epic rant for the record books. That beat playing before ‘Ye interrupted didn’t sound too bad either. My Name Is My Name, October 8.
Ye stops by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform “Bound 2” off Yeezus, with some help from Charlie Wilson and The Roots. Kanye also edited his own first verse with a clean shot at Ray J.
After an unfinished version of the video leaked last week, Kanye releases the official visual for “Black Skinhead.” Directed by Nick Knight.
