Video: Nicki Minaj "Right Thru Me"



A domesticated Nicki Minaj going back and forth arguing with her man (French model Willy Monfret). I wish I could see thru that shower glass in the video.

Dirty Money ft. Drake "Loving You No More"



So we're just gonna ignore the fact that Puff is doing more singing than Drake in this track? Last Train To Paris is still suffering delays. Tentatively leaving the station December 14th. I hope you got insurance for your ticket reimbursements.

Video: Kanye West "Runaway" [Short Film]



Co-starring Selita Ebanks as "The Phoenix" and narrated by Nicki Minaj in her best British accent.

Kanye's upcoming album "My Beautiful Dark Fantasy" plays as the soundtrack to the short film.

I call it a Musical because of the great sound and music selection (production), the theatrics (fireworks, fire), the emotions (Love, sorrow, lust...) and the dance. It could easily go into production on Broadway.

Great visual work Mr. West, I don't know about the acting though. Don't quit your day job, word to your buddy Consequence.

Powerful dinner table scene: white servants serving Africans ("Runaway" slaves?), inappropriate dish served to the Phoenix, Kanye's performance on the piano surrounded by ballerinas.

Must watch! Hip Hop won once again.

Kanye West "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" Cover Art


'Ye drops the gem yesterday on Twitter and was complaining that his cover was banned in theU.S. Probably more like rejected by the label and retail stores.

Art cover by George Condo.

That cover seems familiar to me, remember when Kanye was supposed to tour with Lady GaGa and they leaked the poster video promo of the tour ("Fame Kills")? there were something as controversial as this cover. (Let me check my archives).

Found it:



Close enough.

Video: Rick Ross ft. Chrisette Michele & Drake "Aston Martin Music"



My favorite track off "Teflon Don".

Kanye West Performs on SNL




Amazing visuals with the ballerinas, but the all white set was a bit painful to watch from the other side of the screen. He performed "Power" first then "Runaway" with Pusha T.





Ah! Ah! 'Ye censoring himself Live, the FCC gots to love this. Cut him a check while you're at it. Oh and he has an autotune microphone.


This man is a creative GENIUS

Kanye West ft. John Legend, Pusha T, Ryan Leslie, Lloyd Banks & Kid Cudi - Christian Dior Denim Flow


What a lineup! Pusha T for the win!

After almost canceling G.O.O.D Friday due to leaks of unfinished materials by some unappreciative hacker (all the free music we've been getting from Kanye for weeks now), Mr. West comes thru with an incredible posse collaboration.

Me myself I rather rock a Pierre Cardin suit while I jog in Lanvin high-tops. What you know about that 'Ye?

Video: Rick Ross ft. Slim Thug "Paid Tha Cost"



Didn't Slim took offense at one of Ross' line in "King Boss"?

She dated Slim Thug, but now she fucks with me/She finally made it to the biggest boss, luckily.
