Video Review: Kanye West – Only One

Kanye West is in a class of his own. No albums soundalike, and never will. He’s one of the few biggest names in hip-hop that still aims to push the envelope and be innovative. While we had a small sample of “All Day” in 2014, ‘Ye kept quiet on the music front until the last day of the year. “Only One” sprung up on iTunes, and featured Paul McCartney (and Ty Dolla $ign). It was entirely different from “All Day.” The song found him softly singing as his mother speaking to him, speaking to his daughter. This is one of… continue reading

Kanye West Ft. Paul McCartney – Only One

In an unexpected turn of events, Kanye West begins 2015 with his brand new single “Only One.” There were rumblings and rumors of a new single set to drop tonight, but it got a bit more authenticity when Kim K responded to a fan: @BrianSporman i will tell him — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) January 1, 2015 That was a solid promo tactic. This single is great. Something refreshing and different from what we got on Yeezus. ‘Ye is singing about his daughter with back-up being handled by the one and only Paul McCartney. Get it on iTunes now. Expect… continue reading

Pusha T – Lunch Money (Prod. By Kanye West)

Pusha T – Lunch Money (Prod. By Kanye West)

“I’m taking nigga’s lunch money/ too bad, I was fucking hungry” Pusha T has spent the entire year working on his sophomore album, King Push, so we haven’t gotten much out of him. For his triumph return, Kanye West laces him with an interesting beat. It sounds like a power-up from a Super Marios Bros. game was sampled. This is hard and Push is one of the few rappers who could body something of this caliber. “If the crown ain’t mine, tell me who am I behind” The quotables are endless! Mixing that street talk with that slick stunting that… continue reading

Kanye West on Juan Epstein

Kanye West on Juan Epstein

Anybody that’s ever heard a Juan Epstein podcast with Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds knows how amazing this sit-down with Kanye West is. We’ve gotten a lot of press from ‘Ye lately — enough to make people not want to watch or hear what he has to say anymore — but this is certainly worth listening to. In the 30 minute interview, they talk about his early career, being good at drawing but dropping out to do music, his early influences, working on “Cold” and how it timed perfectly with when he started dating Kim Kardashian, and more.

Video: Kanye West – Sway In The Morning Interview

By now, you’ve heard the audio or seen the quotes of Kanye’s now infamous interview with Sway. At around 17 minutes in is when he spazzes out about not wanting to start his own fashion company and later explains his reasoning. Don’t let him be misunderstood. He also talks about the constant hate he gets, not having Big Sean or Pusha T on the Yeezus tour and more. Previously:┬áVideo: Kanye West on The Breakfast Club

Video: Kanye West on The Breakfast Club

We’ve been waiting for Kanye West vs. Charlamagne for years. Yesterday, Yeezus himself sat down with The Breakfast Club to make this dream come true. While there’s no heavy back and forth battle, Charlamagne doesn’t hold his tongue at all. In the 42 minutes, they cover all kinds of topics, including what makes him frustrated, why he denounces corporations but still works with them, why he chose Jay-Z over Dame Dash, feeling like money makes you free and much more. It’s very entertaining. Down below is a 10 minute preview of his interview with Juan Epstein that’ll be available next… continue reading
