Tag: Kanye West
Yesterday we brought you Kanye’s entire performance from Motownphilly’s leg of the Made In America Festival, and tonight we have Yeezy’s full set from his L.A. performance. Both joints were crazy, but it looks like the crowd in the City of Angels was just berserk. See just how intense it got below.
Watch the full thing under the jump…
Last night, Lord Yeezus headlined Budweiser’s Made In America Festival in Philadelphia. Obviously he pulled out all of the stops during his extended set. It looked wild. If you’re in LA, you can catch him tonight at their stop of the Made In America Fest.
Hit the jump for the second half. Shouts to Yardie.
Could two of the greatest living musicians (albeit from two very different generations) be collaborating on a project together? Well, to let Page Six tell it, Kanye West and Paul McCartney have been crafting a slew of tracks together — enough for a project. One of the confirmed tracks is a song called “Piss On My Grave.” Yikes.
Kanye West has secretly been recording tracks with Sir Paul McCartney, sources exclusively tell Page Six.
The rapper and the former Beatle have quietly been collaborating on a number of tracks that could develop into an album, we’re told.
One song, tentatively titled “Piss on My Grave,” is sparking some chatter.
West’s wife Kim Kardashian has been heard telling friends she was a little surprised they chose such a provocative name.
Kanye, whose rep declined to comment, was also present at McCartney’s show at LA’s Dodger Stadium last week.
The legend had previously revealed he would be interested in collaborating with a rapper such as Kanye or Jay Z.
As the release date for Bang 3 rapidly approaches, Keef continues to get itchy with letting his fans hear the finished product. And just last night he took to IG to give the world a sneak peek of “Nobody” his long-awaited and highly anticipated joint with Kanye To The.
The result? Well, from the few second preview it sounds like Yeezus and Keef are taking us back to 808s & Heartbreak. Can’t wait to hear the finished result. Check out a preview below.
Remember the other day when that super short, 1-800-COLLECT pay phone quality snippet of Kanye’s new single “All Day” leaked? Yeah, you couldn’t really make much out. Well, this morning we get a 2:15 rough cut of the track — which sounds like it was recorded on the same pay phone, although the connection quality might’ve been 1-800-CALL-ATT. I’m not sure.
Yes, this is 2014 when people are so thirsty to leak new Ye that they’ll go to great lengths to record it straight off their iPhone and then upload it on the internet. And I’m thirsty enough to post it so I guess a spade is a spade, or nah?
Check it out below before it’s deleted from the universe entirely. The track comes via Revolt.
Man listen. 808s & Heartbreak is one of Kanye’s best albums. I promise. So very influential (as is Yeezus right now.) One of my favorite tracks from this project was “Robocop” which was thought to have a video that never surfaced (which is standard for Kanye — he doesn’t like ‘em, he scraps ‘em.)
However, today a quick preview of his “Robocop” clip has surfaced, which stars his ex-bae Amber Rose. 3D modeler Shihan Barbee, who worked on the video, just dropped this :15 clip. Hope Yeezus doesn’t send the Yeezy Mafia after him for this one. Either way peep below.
Okay, so this track is obviously an insanely unauthorized leak and was likely recorded over a pay phone (or something of the sort.) The quality is super sus, but alas it is some new Yeezy — even if it’s only :45 seconds deep. To let josepvinaixa.com (who leaked it) tell it, this track is actually his upcoming single “All Day,” which Kanye spoke about in-depth in his most recent GQ Magazine interview. Personally, I can’t call it, because I can’t hear it, but from the lo-res version this thing sounds monstrous. Listen while you can. Hopefully the real deal impacts soon.
I think just my usual pattern is like that. It’s like a pendulum. The pendulum gains momentum by swinging in the other direction. Even lyrically, I think about certain lines that I say on my new single, which is called “All Day”, that usually Jay would say, but Jay’s not on there. So I say, All day, *****, it’s Ye, *****. Shopping for the winter, it’s just May, *****. Ball so hard, man, this **** cray, *****. You ain’t getting money unless you got eight figures. Right? Jay would have said that. And then eventually I would have came in with, like, whatever I come in with. But the balance of a meal is that when people walk in, they want water first. People definitely weren’t getting water first on Yeezus. I do fight with myself to say, “Keep fighting.” But also, you know, you can’t win every single fight. It’s a long war, and if you’re out there trying to, like, blow up every single building, you won’t win the war
Peep the preview of “All Day” below.
Lord Yeezus covers the August issue of Gentlemen’s Quarterly, which should be on newsstands any day now. Hit the jump to see the whole spread, and to steal your outfit ideas for the next four months. Real drill.
Complex just got their hands on some unearthed footage of Yeezus rocking the mic at the Fat Beats NYC grand opening in 1996. What. In. The. Hell. If you’re in the dark about Fat Beats, it was a legendary hip-hop shop in NYC that favored underground artists — it’s actually one of the most respected and revered spots ever. Says DJ Eclipse who had this footage:
“The original location of Fat Beats launched on July 14, 1994 which means FB just turned 20 years old! Business was doing so well 2 years in that Joseph Abajian decided to move the store from it’s small 9th St. basement space into a 2nd floor location on 6th Avenue. August 1996 (day?) was the grand opening of the 406 6th Avenue location. It was also the beginnings of our independent movement which had recently started bubbling about a year before.
Yesterday I started converting old Hi8 video tapes to DVD and came across some interesting footage from that day. Now we had a lot of the usual suspects in the place that day such as ILL BILL, Arsonists, Lord Finesse, Adagio, Breeze Brewin, A.L. Skills, Percee P, J-Live, Mr. Live, Chino XL, Al Tariq, Black Attack, Xzibit, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Rawcotiks, Ak Skills, Rob Swift, Roc Raida, DJ Spinna and many, many more. But what took me by surprise was the appearance of this 19-year-old kid who at that time nobody knew. At least in NYC.”
Throwback Thursday, indeed. Kanye low key had some bars here. A must watch.
So back in 2010 (which seems like a whole lifetime ago), Kanye was featured on a failed reality show about a celeb travel agent named Brett Grolsch. Somehow, someway, TMZ got their hands on it. In the clip, you see Kanye and Don C talking travel plans with Brett, and also get some scoop on how Yeezus curves fans and unwanted attention. Surprised this didn’t get the greenlight, tbh.
