I’m surprised Kanye is able to produce as much as he has been lately… I figured Kim Kardashian’s ass would occupy most of his time. Recently dropping a collab album with G.O.O.D. Music, Mr. West is working on an upcoming solo album which I’m assuming White Dress will be a part of. This is more like the Kanye I like; very similar to his earlier work and less of the mediocre work he’s been putting out.
Apparently Kanye West will not be attending the MTV Music Video Awards tonight, but he coincidentally drops his new single right before the event. Is this part of an act that he has planned for the audience tonight? Perhaps. Clique, a track on G.O.O.D Music’s compilation album, Cruel Summer — due in stores Sept. 18th — features Jay-Z and Big Sean, and comes fully loaded with hard-hitting drums from producer, Hit-Boy.
Since we haven’t had any rap posts in a little while, here’s a handful that are fresh off the Pro Tools..
DJ Drama feat. 2 Chainz, Meek Millz, Jeremih – My Moment Beat and vibe very similar to I’m On One, and that’s a not a bad thing.
DJ Khaled feat. Kanye West & Rick Ross – I Wish You WouldKanye getting violent and buck on his verses these days.
T.I. – Go Get It Vintage T.I. swagger over a nasty beat. His latest studio album Trouble Man is coming soon.
“The whole industry wanna f**k your old chick, the only ni**a I got respect for is Wiz” Some Kimmy K. love in there too. Track’s kind of coming out of nowhere, I’m not sure what album or mixtape it’s going to be on. But the beat’s got serious knock. Sick, get the theraflu…
“Prince William ain’t do it right if you ask me, Cause if I was him I would’ve married Kate aaand Ashley” Watch The Throne dropped today on iTunes! Go and get it now!! I haven’t even listened to half the tracks yet and I’m still calling rap album of the year. Download link.
“Sophisticated ignorance, I write my curses in cursive” The latest leak from my most anticipated album of the year Watch The Throne, due out August 1st. The beat is slightly underwhelming, considering how H.A.M. H.A.M. went, but the wordplay is still top-notch. Download link
New Kanye! There was a live performance of this song last fall and speculation was that it would end up on his last album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I can see why “Mamma’s Boyfriend” wasn’t included – it’s soul samples and vintage feel would have never fit in with the lavish sounds of the theatrical Twisted Fantasy. Ye raps about how he felt resentment towards the men in his mother’s life, and how the scripts been flipped now that’s he’s all grown up. Well done, Mr. West. Download link.
A mix of Ron Pope’s “A Drop in the Ocean”, Wiz Khalifa’s “This Plane”, Eminem’s “How Come”, and a verse from Kanye makes this interesting mashup. A sweet and smooth sound for your Sunday.
