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.
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.
With Kanye West’s SWISH set for a February 11th release, Mr. West decided to cut loose the tracklisting for what he calls “the best album of all-time.”
01 “Nina Chop”
02 “Father Stretch My Hands”
04 “High Lights”
05 “30 Hours”
06 “No More Parties In LA”
09 “Real Friends”
Remember when there was a rumored remix to Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” that featured Miley Cyrus? Well, it’s finally here for you to listen to as Miley is joined by Travis Scott on the remix that is produced by John Mayer, La Flame & Vinylz.
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.
After delivering a brief snippet, Kanye West unveils the full collaboration with Kendrick Lamar titled “No More Parties In LA” that is produced by Madlib.
As Kanye West gears up to release his seventh studio album, SWISH, the Chicago producer and rapper has set a plan in motion to get everyone ready for the follow up to Yeezus.
First, Mr. West will revisit his G.O.O.D. Music Fridays and release a new joint every week until the album drops. That announcement came courtesy of Kim Kardashian’s Twitter feed.
Oh, and when will the album drop? Well, it appears that a date is set for February 11.
After the lukewarm reaction to “Facts,” Kanye returns with “Real Friends/No More Parties In LA” that has a guest list of Ty Dolla $ign and Kendrick Lamar along with production courtesy of Madlib, Boi-1da, SEVNTHOMAS, Frank Dukes & additional programming by Havoc. This is just a sample of the song as Kanye has also announced the return of G.O.O.D. Fridays in preparation for SWISH.
Kanye West return with a new joint that spits venom at Nike in the form of the Metro Boomin’ and Southside produced “Facts.” Do you dig it?
Isn’t it strange how Kanye West tends to give the best interviews overseas? At any rate, Mr. West hits Clique TV in Paris in talks about everything from Drake and Watch The Throne 2 to fashion and why the hell he wore the confederate flag during the Yeezus tour.
