This is the a short and simplified sample of Love Lockdown, Heartless and Coldest Winter Overture, based on Kanye West’s songs from his new CD 808’s and Heartbreak. Pretty sick if you ask me, especially the Heartless part.

808’s & Heartbreaks - Kanye West New Album

Posted in Blog Entries  by Adi

Kanye West’s upcoming fourth album will be called “808’s & Heartbreaks” and is set to be released on December 16th, 2008.

As I’ve posted before, it’s not going to be called “Good Ass Job” as many thought. Kanye West is obviously going to take a different standpoint for “808’s & Heartbreaks.” Although nothing specific has been announced, I’m sure his mom’s death and his break up with his fiance will give this album a more love-like and unique flow. Kanye will also use auto-tune a lot more on this album. I have even read that he’ll use it on the entire album. I hope it’s not true, but even if he does, I won’t mind too much. Kanye West pulls off the auto-tune the best at the moment.

“Good Ass Job” Not the Title for Kanye’s New CD

Posted in Blog Entries  by Adi

Although most people say “Good Ass Job” will be the title of Kanye West’s new CD, apparently it’s not true. Reports are saying Kanye will use some other title for his new CD.

Kanye’s 4th CD is schedule to be released around December. That’s much sooner than most had initially anticipated. Jay Z will be dropping his new album around that time as well.

As far as Lupe Fiasco is concerned, there is still no news on the release date for his remix album with Justice.

We have yet to hear a definite answer on this. Here are the dates for all you Europeans!

Lupe Fiasco said CRS is shooting a new video on Wednesday. I really hope it’s true. There’s no news on what song, and it shouldn’t be “Us Placers.” Who knows, maybe they got a new song that they’ve been hiding from us.

Nas: “I Think Kanye West Saved Rap”

Posted in Blog Entries  by Adi

From Starbury at Baller Status:

Nas is the rapper who said Hip Hop Is Dead a couple years back, but according to him, someone has saved it.

In a recent interview with Complex, the Queensbridge rapper said he thinks Kanye West has saved the genre.

“I think Kanye West saved rap. I think Lil Wayne is showing there is a future for all kinds of artists to continue doing this. You know, I love it,” Nas said.

So if the genre is no longer dead, who still gets Nas excited when he hears them? Kanye, Outkast, and Eminem.

He later touched on the issue with his the controversial title he chose for his upcoming album — which was later changed from Nigger to Untitled — and said if had had it to do over, he wouldn’t.

“I think the Hip Hop Is Dead and the Nigger album, they were for that time. … People may think it’s a controversial title, but it’s really what I’m feeling,” he told the mag. “I’m not going to make the title less controversial because it’s going to offend people.”

The interview took place during a Kanye-esque photoshoot for the magazine, and while it’s not usually Nas’ style, he had fun with it.

“That’s not how I dress, but for a magazine spread, it’s out there to be fun,” explained Nas. “… I always do what I do, so I just wanted to change it up a little bit. Get people talking shit, so it’s cool.”

Nas’ upcoming untitled album hits stores July 15.

——————————————–

What do you all think? Leave a comment with your thoughts. I don’t think it’s only Kanye but a combination of a few rappers, including Lupe Fiasco,  Common, and Jay Z. There are plenty more but those are the ones keeping me interested lately.

Kanye West, Lupe & Pharrell - Sky High Graduates

Posted in Blog Entries  by Adi

This is a brand new song by Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, and Pharrell called “Sky High Graduates.”

The song can be officially found on the Dub Floyd, Hevehitta, & Kanye West “Fast Forward” mix tape. You can download the full mix tape by clicking here. I highly recommend this download/buy. There are tons of good mixes on with Kanye West and a few featuring Lupe Fiasco. There are about 30 songs on there and all are worth a listen.
