Last night, G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam held a star-studded listening session for Teyana Taylor’s long-awaited debut album, VII, at Siren Studios in Los Angeles. The party was attended by the likes of No I.D., Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West, Chris Brown, Big Sean, Nelly, Michael B. Jordan, Terrence Jenkins, Duane Martin and many more.
MTV was on hand to capture Yeezy introducing the album to the packed crowd, and no, he didn’t wild out on the mic. But he did give her a glowing review and told the crowd just how hard she worked to get the album on shelves. Straight motivation from Yeezus can be found above.
Below, we have some additional photos of the event courtesy of Chelsea Lauren and MVD Inc. VII is available for preorder now.
Good news: an official video for Big Sean’s “I Don’t F**k With You” is on the way. MTV caught up with Sean Don on the set to get a preview and speak with Sean about the concept:
MTV News caught up with Sean, who was all smiles on the song’s video set, at College of the Canyons football field in Santa Clarita, California on Sunday night.
Not only is Sean riding high after dropping four new tracks recently, he also had all of his friends hanging with him on the sports-themed set.
Sean played the role of team quarterback, while his “IDFWU” collaborator E-40 suited up as a football commentator. One of the song’s producers DJ Mustard filled in as one of Sean’s teammates and Kanye West showed of his acting chops by playing the team’s coach.
Excited for this one. Check out the behind-the-scenes clip above and look for the video to impact in the coming weeks.
Produced by Kanye West, Mike Dean, Jess Jackson and Dupri.
After a few delays, the first single from Tyga’s The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty LP is finally here. If this joint is any indication of what Tyga’s been cooking up with ‘Ye, then color me interested.
Listen to “40 Mill” below and be sure to cop the single on iTunes.
Rolling Stone recently caught up with storied Chicago poet/artist/thinker/writer, Malik Yuself, who discussed the latest Yeezy endeavor, which we’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting impatiently on. The good news? That there are at least 20 songs done. No titles or details were revealed, but ‘Sef did disclose that the album sounds like a crispy pair of Timberlands. Now, that’s my type of hype. I doubt we’ll get it before years end, but stranger things have happened.
Asked to describe the new album, Yusef says, “This album is different. It’s like a pair of Timberlands; like how Timberlands are not quite leather and not quite suede. It’s not the smooth, slick Chicago music sound we have right now and it’s not the ruggedness of just ‘hip-hop hip-hop hip-hop.’ We’re still working like a motherfucker. We’ve been all around the world [recording].” …
Yeezy season approaching?
An official version of Kanye’s “All Day” has yet to surface, but new music is on the horizon. Tyga took to Instagram today to share a preview of his new single, “40 Mill”, which features production from ‘Ye, Mike Dean, Jess Jackson and Dupri.
Sounds like a winner to me, but I’m going to need to hear this joint in it’s entirety. No word on when the single is set to be released, but you can check out a snippet of “40 Mill” below.
A few weeks back, Yeezy caused quite the stir Down Under as he was accused of tormenting an Australian fan in a wheelchair for not standing up during his performance. Well, at this weekend’s AAHH Fest, Kanye proved he has nothing but love for all humans, as he invited a handicapped fan who was being hoisted through the crowd in his wheelchair to the stage during his set. Check out what went down in the Potent Vision clip above.
Yeezus cares, if don’t nobody else care.
The content continues to roll out from yesterday’s AAHH Fest. And due to popular demand, the full run of Kanye West’s set is now available for your viewing pleasure. No matter if you missed it or just want to watch it again, be sure witness the magic that transpired last night at Union Park.
Shouts GWHH. Check out the set list below.

In case you’ve been under a rock for the past 24 hours, the first annual AAHH! Fest took place yesterday at Union Park and it was nothing short of amazing. The festival, which an estimated 9,000 people attended, kicked off with a performance from Lil Herb which was followed by sets from SZA, Jay Electronica, MC Lyte, De La Soul and Jennifer Hudson. Shortly after J Hud’s performance, Dave Chappelle hit the stage and introduced Lupe Fiasco. Following Lu’s performance, the man behind the festival, Common took the stage for his set which included a mini-set from Twista and surprise performance from Kanye West.
Yeah, go ahead and kick yourself if you missed out. Check out some dope shots from the festival and make sure you’re in attendance next year.
I’m going to have to write a full run-down of this festival tomorrow once I get it together, but for now we have to bring you a few treats from earlier this evening. During Com’s set, he brought out the likes of Twista, Jay Electronica and Vince Staples, but once Yeezy hit the stage it was game over. Seriously. Tonight was one of my favorite Kanye performances ever, quite possibly my favorite since the Graduation preview joint at the House of Blues back in the summer of 07. He was a man possessed tonight — truly inspired by the humans of his hometown.
That being said, check out he and his old buddy Com Sense running through their first major label collabo, “Get Em High.” AAHH Fest was too crazy, can’t wait till next year.
Produced by Kanye West, DJ Mustard & DJ Dahi
This is one of the craziest joints I’ve heard in a while. Cot damn this one goes. Sean just dropped four new joints, but we had to highlight this one. Flames.
