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.
Theophilus London’s forthcoming Vibes LP features a new verse from ‘Ye on “Can’t Stop”, but you won’t have to wait until the album drops to hear it. A 1:30 long snippet of Theophilus and Kanye’s collaboration is available via iTunes and it just happens that Kanye’s verse is featured in the preview.
Judging from the preview, this it may be a little difficult for me to stop playing this joint once the full version hits. Listen to Kanye’s verse from “Can’t Stop” below and be sure to pre-order Vibes (which Kanye executive produced) here.
Last night, Yeezy had a show in the land down under, and during his performance he let a very big cat out of the bag. Like lion big. After months of waiting and teasing, Kanye finally announced that the Air Yeezy 3 (now by adidas) is due out in November. Expect the world to collectively lose their shit when these things hit the market. FFWD to the 2:50 mark to hear it from Kanye himself.
Also, hit the jump to see Ye playing basketball over in Australia with some senior citizens and homies. Why? Why not.
Yes, it’s true: deep down we’re all thirstballs to hear the latest music from Kanye West. And since the masterpiece known as Yeezus, we’ve been impatiently waiting for some new material. Well, the Thirst Gods have surfaced yet again, and we can now here a brief snippet of his new record “Awesome.” A portion of this record will play tonight on the season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In the clip, you can hear Kim describing the record, which is dedicated to her, and then miraculously a high quality snippet begins to play in the background. E! — the new place to break music.
Check it out below while you can.
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.
