Kanye West has announced that he’ll drop his 10th solo studio album this year titled God’s Country. Judging by the lead single “Wash Us In The Blood” that features Travis Scott, it’s a mixture of Yeezus and JESUS IS KING. The video splices together footage from the protests across the country, videos of police brutality and artful visuals. The song was also mixed down by Dr. Dre.
For whatever reason, Nas decided to drop a video for each song from his NASIR album. The next video comes in the form of The-Dream and Kanye West-assisted “Everything.”
Nas blesses us with another set of visuals for the Kanye West-produced “Adam & Eve” from his NASIR project released last summer.
One of the standout tracks from the Nas and Kanye West collaboration NASIR gets a visual treatment. Nas laments about the perils of police brutality in the African American community over Kanye West production and Slick Rick makes a cameo.
DJ Green Lantern drops off a proper remix of Nas and Kanye West’s “Cops Shot the Kid.”
Speaking of Kanye West, the controversial rapper who can’t seem to keep his foot out of his mouth had DJ Clark Kent unleash a song that didn’t make the cut for Ye. “XTSY” is Kanye doing his “scoopity poop” rap but also has a line about having four sisters-in-laws that he’d consider smashing. Yeah, it’s that type of party.
Kanye West has been under fire for his controversial tweets over the past week. To kind of answer the questions regarding his tweets, Mr. West is joined by T.I. for “Ye vs. The People.” No clue if this is on Kanye’s album dropping in June or not, but does this track help explain his actions?
Remember that time that Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar were in the studio together and rhyming over Madlib beats? Out of that came “No More Parties In LA” off of Kanye’s The Life Of Pablo album. But there was more. Today, we get a session where the duo is just kicking rhymes over Madlib beats. 100% freestyle.
While we await CyHi’s next album, he teams up with Kanye West for “Dat Side” as the two trade verses.
Before Kanye West became Yeezus, he and John Legend were just a couple of guys trying to live out their dreams to become stars in this music industry. Tim Westwood captured both at their hungriest back in 2004.
