“All Day” with Allan Kingdom
‘Ye surprised everyone across the pond last night with an one-off show at KOKO in London, but the surprises didn’t stop there. Big Sean, Vic Mensa, CyHi The Prynce, Skepta, Allan Kingdom and Raekwon were all in the building and hit the stage with ‘Ye to perform various joints including “Wolves,” “All Day,” Sean’s “Blessings,” Wu-Tang’s “C.R.E.A.M.,” and more.
Vic Mensa even debuted “Why U Mad,” produced by Stefan Ponce, Smoko Ono and D. Phelps, from his upcoming Traffic project while onstage with ‘Ye. Yeah, this wasn’t a show to be missed if you were in London. For those who did miss it and all of those outside of the UK, you can check out a few of the night’s performances above and below the jump.
Kanye West threw a secret show in London this evening, that sold out within a matter of minutes (natch). He brought Big Sean, CyHi, Wu-Tang Clan and Skepta along for the ride. But the best news is that his new best bud, Vic Mensa, is still in the cut. These two are working together at a feverish pace (at least from the outside looking in) — with Vic having grabbed writing credit on “All Day,” appearing with Ye at the Brit Awards, and featuring on “Wolves.” So it would appear there’s a lot more than meets the eye going on between these two. Could there be some GOOD things in the works? We know there’s a lot of big things happening with Vic right now, so we shall see.
Anyhoo, at the show Vic premiered some new music with Kanye, which was produced by Stefan Ponce, Smoko Ono and D. Phelps. We’re not 100% sure of the name or origin of the track, but it sounds like a monster. Here’s a quick snippet of the record. Keep an open eye for more info.
Footage of Kanye and Vic doing “Wolves” is below as well. “All Day” as well.
Update: better clips of Vic and Ye’s new song below.

The of the hottest in the music biz (period!) right now give us the riveting new video for America’s current theme song, “Blessings.” Great song with an equally dope, albeit eerie, video. If you’re able to click play, you’re way up. So enjoy this blessing up top.
Now that Kanye’s “All Day” has officially been released, everyone can enjoy the record it was meant to be heard and take a look at exactly who contributed to the track.
The record surprisingly features 19 contributors, including Vic Mensa, Malik Yusef, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Liva, French Montana and plenty of other familiar names.
Take a look at the full writing/composer credits for “All Day” below.
“It’s what you all been waiting for, ain’t it?” – ‘Ye
“All Day” is finally here, the way ‘Ye meant for it to be heard (kinda). Radio-rip only for now. You can go ahead and delete all of those live-version rips you downloaded now. Produced by ‘Ye, Velous and French Montana.
Kanye’s seventh studio album, So Help Me God, and the iTunes version of “All Day” is coming sooner than you think. Stay woke.
Update: Dirty/CDQ added.
Kanye West continued his European excursion today by speaking at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History in Great Britain. Video of the speech/discussion has not been made available yet, but these screen-capped tweets are more than worth your time.
In the speech, Kanye talks about everything from $5000 sweaters, to Obama calling his home phone, dropping the best album of the past 25 years and much more.

Yeezy season is really real right now, and now welcome to the So Help Me God era. Late last night, Kanye announced the title of his eighth solo album and shared its official artwork which you see above. Kanye tweeted “So Help Me God” with a link to this art, which is the Mother Mary symbol.
No word on an official release date, but stay tuned for more details.
Yeezus is currently across the pond making moves and doing his thing, and while on the move dropped by a Norwegian-Swedish talking show called Skavlan to perform his recently released single “Only One.” There’s just a few less flame-throwers than his “All Day” performance from a couple days ago, but still v impactful. Check it out above.
