The best piece of music you’ll hear this year.

“Name me the last time I wasn’t in a hurry…”
Are they fucking crazy?
They’ve forgotten what it means to live in the real world, they have make believe problems.
I absolutely love the new album, but my one problem was with “Wolves”
‘I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome…’
If there is a better album this year, I would be fascinating to discover what it is…
This is 35 minutes of state of the pop art
‘I did not diss Taylor Swift and I’ve never dissed her…’
A very very solid effort.
All done in an hour. $150… worth it? Every penny.
All Kanye some of the time
‘God is doing the…work, my mom had Teddy Riley change his flight and come back to the studio.’
Yeezy Season 3 is launching a casting for up to 1200 paid extras to participate
Any music guy who doesn’t get West after reading Lou Reed’s explanation, isn’t trying hard enough
Galileo was a fool. The earth rotates around yeezy’
Yes, we found out by calling Amex!!!
SWISH in its entirety – live from Madison Square Garden in New York City
What is he, fifteen? Why “F” his “L” for fucks sake.
Some people have imagined this was announcing the success of Kanye West.
‘Our sources say the rapper is still hard at work on an album … of his own material, sans Ziggy Stardust ’16’
‘College kids today are about 40 percent lower in empathy than their counterparts of 20 or 30 years ago, as measured by standard tests of this personality trait.’
He let drop Swish was swishing on February 16th
Curbed LA has all the real estate stories of the year, and if you only consider those about pop and rock stars, all I can say is that there’s a lot of money in this town!
This is kinda on the minor side
Self-indulgent narcissistic spoiled brats? This is certainly what their children will be.
There are so many outlets, so many blogs, websites, magazines which need the attention in an over-saturated market, that necessarily anything, yes about anything, passes for news
Leno ridiculously asked West “What would your mother say about what you did to Taylor?”. Kanye’s mom, who he immortalized on “Hey Mama” from Late Registration and who died from a botched cosmetic surgery for which Kanye has blamed himself
Ellie Goulding is a ‘fucking dick’? Really Noel Gallagher? The problem is that Ellie just talked to the Sun and she told them that you were a fan:
‘Noel came up to me at the Brit Awards two years ago and said, ‘I love your music — but don’t fucking tell anyone’, she declared! Obviously telling everyone would ruin his joke and his game.
And what were we supposed to understand? All I see is a little girl licking a lollipop and her mother worrying about her getting all sticky from the sugar? I don’t know, but people got really, really mad, a line of truly offended people responded to the tweet, getting on their high horses, probably the same league of politically correct people who get offended for a ‘bad’ Halloween costume…
This isn’t the “new” new stuff we’ve been waiting for since the sublime “The Wolves” last Spring, this is more like obtuse but very good stopgaps because he felt like it, and fine by me. You won’t find em on Swish when you find Swish at all.
The brand was selling clothes with slogans such as ‘Kanye is my Homie’, ‘Pharrell is my Brotha’ or featuring nicknames like Jay Z’s ‘Hova’, Beyonce’s ‘Cayonce’, or even lyrics and the Hollywood Reporter is saying that The lawsuit ‘asserts a whopping 58 claims’.
I know that people are gonna say it was epic, but it was mostly nonsense randomness. Then, out of the blue, he announced he had decided to run for president in 2020… WTF? And why not? Kanye was joking right?
What are you thinking FYF fest, do you want to compete with Glastonbury or Coachella? … you were this cool DIY fest and now you are all grown up and so big. How much did you pay Kanye? More than Frank Ocean? I would like to know, as I was amazed to see that 2-day tickets were still available a few days before the festival,… which didn’t sell out?
‘FYF Fest’s 12th year kicks off this Saturday at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena & Exposition Park. Kanye West will now headline Saturday night’s Main Stage. Frank Ocean has decided on his own terms to cancel his appearance.’
A petition was started online and, after gaining 100,000 signatures, therefore warranted a response from the President. Optimism was shortlived, however, as the White House removed it from the We The People website, citing a term of participation violation.
‘‘I’d be biased to think that the community of Geminis is the most consistently in tune with what their spirit is telling them to do or why they have breath in their lungs. But I do think that creative Geminis—Tupac, Biggie, Prince, Miles Davis, all being Geminis—have, throughout history, been really in tune with those things.’
‘Filmed in a single nine-minute take at the Chatham Dockyard in southeast England, the video follows Mr. West through an empty warehouse as he runs, crouches, dodges, raps, rants, sweats and pants, as if being pursued by the camera or the police or in pursuit himself, until he slumps against the wall to catch his breath.’
She now has a Tumblr page with heavy traffic, and was discovered by A$AP, her first famous customer. Then Rihanna saw his mouthpiece, and from there, Dolly became the grill-maker for celebrities. All of her creations are customized and handmade, and are unique pieces, she said to Vogue magazine she will never make the same one again. Using her dentistry practice, she makes a mold of someone’s mouth and then sculpts the piece using chromium chromate, then 18K gold, yellow or white.
‘We were told we only had one guest each this time,’ said The Maccabees guitarist Felix White. ‘I’ve not got that many other friends who want to come, but I’m just making a point!’ And The Maccabees were not even performing on the same stage than Kanye. ‘We were told that this viewing platform’s been set up just for Kanye so he’s got hundreds and hundreds of guests apparently,’ added White.
“I AM THE GREATEST LIVING ROCKSTAR ON THE PLANET!” Kanye West claimed at Glastonbury yesterday and if you disagree maybe you should move on to bro country… I can’t think of a planet where that probably isn’t true and if West is the divining line in modern pop music stick me on any side he is on.
‘You’ve got more attention on that Saturday night set from Kanye than maybe anything else. Who knows what will happen? He could walk out there and have 100,000 people bottle him on stage or he could walk out there and show the world that nothing else matters except for that moment. And I’m sure that is what he will do.’
“When I walk up to people they’re like, ‘Wow! You’re nice.’ They’re acting like I’m walking actually turning over furniture everywhere I go…I’m in my own zone. I can’t go walk around trying to defend myself, chime in on everything.”
What Billboard have that other people don’t is the numbers to back up their awards, so the multi-platinum 1989 is a no brainer winner for this years awards. Billboard is all about the charts and as all about the charts go, it is where it is at. Which means the only award they didn’t hand to Taylor was Top New Artist (they gave it to Sam Smith instead).
If you are a fan, you have realized that it is actually an adaptation of his music video ’Bound 2’, into a kids’ book, and you can see the whole story here. Tebbal will be soon graduating from New York’s famed School of Visual Arts, so he is a little chicken too, with, apparently, a lot of talent and humor.
Rap is not responsible for the decline of Christianity, on the contrary they push the God agenda all the time… but O’Reilly is a simple guy with huge blinders on each side of his big head… A decline of Christianity? I see that as a good thing, may be the product of more science in school curriculum?
‘When I was giving a lecture at Oxford, I brought up this school because when I went on that mission to create in other spaces, apparel, film, performance, it would have been easier if I could have said that I had a degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.’
‘My mum came to me in a dream when she’d died years previously. I was in a bit of a state – it was the Sixties and I was overdoing it. In the dream she said, ‘Don’t worry it’s all going to be fine, just let it be.’ And I woke up and thought, ‘Woah’ and wrote the song.’ And this moving story really inspired Kanye, who said, ‘I’m going to write a song with my mum.’ Macca sat at the piano and they wrote ‘Only One’.
I would say it’s refreshing to see someone expressing his own idea, and he is right about the consensus around Mr. West! Look, it’s not possible to please everyone, although nobody is saying anything negative about him! I don’t buy a minute that everyone thinks he is this amazing genius, there must be some artists who find him not that great, right?
