Future Hendrix and ‘Ye hit the beach in the official video for their collab, “I Won”. And no, Ciara and Kim Kardashian do not make cameos. Future’s sophomore LP, Honest, hits stores and digital retailers Tuesday.
‘Ye was in the building for adidas’ Global Conference in Germany today. After performing, Kanye spoke to everyone in attendance about creativity, what it means to him and even announced that you expect to see his upcoming Yeezi collaboration with adidas in June. Wise words here — check out the clip above.
No April Fools, but tonight the Lord Yeezus put his Australian tour dates on the back burner in order to finish his forthcoming album. Good news for us, bad news for the land down under.
A statement released to Live Nation Australia reads:
”Due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release, Kanye West regretfully announces the postponement of his upcoming tour dates in Australia.”
Hopefully we’ll see that album this year. Perhaps this summer?
That’s right — Kanye and Kim are both on the cover of Vogue Magazine‘s April edition. Pretty dope. Vogue has also released a behind-the-scenes video of ‘Ye and Kim’s (and Baby North’s) shoot with Annie Leibovitz, which you can find below. Look for the mag to hit a newsstand near you in the coming weeks.
While King Louie, Kaattttiieeee and Chano were killing it alongside the G.O.O.D. familia at Brazos Hall, The Throne took to the stage at Austin Music Hall for their Samsung user-exclusive performance.
Kanye and Jay definitely had Austin Music Hall packed for what we’re sure was an amazing show — hell, even Jay Elec showed up. Check out ‘Ye and Jay opening their set with “H.A.M” above and hit the jump to catch them running through “Otis” and closing with “N*ggas In Paris” below.
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.
