Yeah, this is random.
Word has it that this joint is a leftover from Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories sessions, but who knows. Thank and or blame, RapWAVE. Stay tuned for more details on this record.
Last night, Rick Ross brought his Mastermind to The Arsenio Hall Show for a performance of “Sanctified.” But to surprise the crowd, Rozay pulled the ultimate caper and brought out Kanye West and Big Sean. A very boss move, IMO.
Mastermind in stores now.
It took a few years, but Kanye West is finally back with the Roc. Well, in some capacity at least. It was announced this morning via Roc Nation’s website that Kanye would be bringing his DONDA brand over to the house Jay and Jay built. The press release states that the partnership “will focus on Mr. West’s international recording brand and worldwide touring ventures.”
So does that mean G.O.O.D. artists will now be separate from DONDA artists? Or will they all merge one day? Def Jam still has Ye and two of the most high profile G.O.O.D. artists (Big Sean and Pusha T) so it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out. Will DONDA/Roc get all of Ye’s producers as well? This is a very big play, but unfortunately all we have is this press release to go from for now:
A multi-discipline design and content company, DONDA saw its early beginnings seeded by the 2009 footwear collaboration with fashion house Louis Vuitton. That collaboration spurred demand for Mr. West’s design sensibilities with fashion and apparel brands around the globe, including Nike and Adidas. DONDA continues its influence in the world of apparel: two versions of the Nike AIR YEEZY – each of which has sold out worldwide in just minutes – two celebrated capsule lines with Parisian brand A.P.C. – also instantly sold-out – and the highly-anticipated new line with Adidas, slated to debut this fall.
While in Berlin for the latest stop on his Would You Like A Tour? tour, Drake surprised everyone in attendance and brought out Yeezus for a quick set. Catch Kanye performing “Black Skinhead” in the video above.

Kanyeezus just took to his website to release the trailer for his forthcoming Hype Williams-directed documentary, Yeezus: The Movie. I’m not sure if it’s actually going to be called Yeezus: The Movie, but I like that title so I’m rolling with it.
This is going straight to theaters, so it’s no DVD/Blu Ray only struggle. This is the real deal. I hope it’s akin to Backstage or Fade To Black. It may just be the actual show, though. Which will be dope for those who lived in markets where the tour didn’t run or couldn’t cop tix.
Tonight Kanye helped Seth Meyers kick off his new late night talk show, Late Night with Seth Meyers, with an interview and performance. Above you’ll find a portion of said interview, where Kanye and Seth go down SNL memory lane.
Below Kanye talks about fatherhood and how it’s going to shape his new album.

This one goes crazy — as expected. Yeezy and Mustard on the track, hoe? Yes indeed. Rick Ross’ Mastermind project is available for free stream via iTunes radio right now, so we had to bring you a stream of the Kanye and Sean-featured record.
Make sure you preorder the project now. Check out the “Sanctified” below.
Remember when everyone got a look at ‘Ye and Tyga together in the studio? Well, it seems we now know what it is they may have been working on. In a new interview with Yesi Ortiz, Tyga says ‘Ye will be assisting on his forthcoming The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty LP.
Interesting, right? Press play on the video above and hit the 4:55 mark to hear what Tyga has to say about working with Kanye on The Gold Album. Props to TKD for the heads up.
Produced by Anthony Killhofer, M-16 and Tec Beatz.
I normally skip over tracks I’ve heard before when listening to a new project for the first time, but I decided to let track three on CyHi The Prynce’s Black Hystori Project play straight through a few minutes ago. To my surprise, the previously released “Huey” now features a verse from the city’s own King Louie.
Nor the tape’s ID3 tags or original back cover listed Louie as a guest feature on the song, so I’m sure I’m not the only person that missed Lou’s verse — if I am, I’ll gladly take my late pass. Either way, it’s good to hear Lou alongside another G.O.O.D. representative. Hopefully, there are more collabs from Louie and G.O.O.D. emcees on the way. Stream/download “Huey” below.

The second leg of the Yeezus tour pushed through Atlantic City last night. And per usual, Kanye gave an inspired stream of consciousness speech to the packed crowd. In last night’s editions he talks about haters and dreamers, how the media portrays him and inspiring others. Hit the jump for the second part.
