KANYE WEST PERFORMS ULTRALIGHT BEAM ON SNL [VIDEO]

Kanye West took to the Saturday Night Live stage flanked by Chance The Rapper, The Dream, Kirk Franklin, Kelly Price and a choir to perform the lead track from his recently released The Life of Pablo. It was everything you would expect from a Kanye performance as he wanted to announce the release of his album when all eyes were on him.

TIM WESTWOOD RELEASES 2004 KANYE WEST FREESTYLE

As we close in on the release of Kanye West’s next album, Tim Westwood unearths a freestyle from back in 2004 where the Chicago emcee/producer rhymed over “Slow Jamz” & “Change Clothes.” You may be familiar with the verses that he spits from spots he did with Slum Village, Dilated Peoples, Talib Kweli and Jadakiss but it’s dope to see nonetheless.

KANYE WEST CHANGES ALBUM TITLE; WILL PERFORM WAVES IN FULL IN NYC ON FEBRUARY 11

Who knows exactly what Kanye West is thinking? He originally titled his 7th studio album SWISH but apparently with a couple of weeks before the album drops, he is no longer digging that album title.

Mr. West took to Twitter to announce a new album title:

So, there you have it, Kanye’s new album is now titled WAVES and is “the album of the life” (whatever that means).

Also, Mr. West will take to Madison Square Garden to perform the album in its entirety on the day the album drops. Pre-sale tickets start today with the general sale beginning on the 29th. You can cop your tickets to the show here.

YASIIN BEY RETIRES FROM RAP IN VOICEMAIL TO KANYE WEST A

Yasiin Bey (b.k.a. Mos Def) gave Kanye West a call the other night after being arrested in South Africa for violating local immigration laws while trying to leave the country. He’s been detained in Cape Town while he and his family will have 14 days to vacate the country. The voicemail finds Bey explaining his current situation while dropping a freestyle of sorts with the same cadence as Mr. West’s recently released “No More Parties In LA.” The 11-minute message also finds Bey stating his immediate retirement from hip hop and Hollywood. He will drop one last album this year though.

Give it a listen. Hopefully this isn’t the last we hear from the artist formally known as the Mighty Mos Def.
