Earlier this week KanYe West revealed to MTV's Sway that his and Jay-Z's project "Watch The Throne", which was originally set to be released as an EP, has now become a full-length album and some of the songs that was supposed to be featured on it is now instead appearing on KanYe's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy". But now it's Saturday and time for the weekly #GOODFridays dosage which this week features Pete Rock, Jay-Z, Charlie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield & KiD CuDi and looks like this: [...]
If any of you follow Kanye's Twitter, you might now how "All Of The Nights" has gone through dozens of mixes. According to the good folks over at The Real Frequency, this is the original version featuring Drake on the hook. Just like with the other released tracks off of Twisted Fantasy, expect the final [...]
Generalmente un video suele durar lo mismo que dura el sencillo o un poco más si consideramos la entrada al video, sobre todo cuando se crea toda una historia alrededor, unos 4 o 5 minutos siempre han parecido suficientes, sin embargo la idea de Kanye West va mucho más allá y cuando digo esto, lo digo en serio. Un mini filme de 35 minutos para promocionar un sencillo no es una cosa que se vea a diario ¿cierto? Pero, de quien más podríamos esperar algo semejante que de Kanye West , y es [...]

Along with a barrage of interceptions from Jay Beetus Cutler, this weekend also saw the unveiling of Kanye West's 34 minute film that incorporates most if not all of the songs from his upcoming album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

"Take One For The Team" (featuring Pusha T, Keri Hilson & CyHi Da Prynce) If there's any one thing to get all nit-picky about concerning Kanye West 's "G.O.O.D. Friday" joints, it's that a majority of them could benefit from some editing. Sure, no one wants to say or do anything that would tick West off and cause him to put a pause on the freebies, but once the novelty of hearing five or six different artists piled on a six-to-seven minute track has worn off, you can't help but to start playing [...]
There are acts of grandiose, extravagance, and then there's the act of Kanye. While the latter isn't exactly an adjective, the English language could have a legitimate case on adding another word into its ever growing library. The ripe, young culture of Hip-Hop has benefited greatly from an one Kanye Omari West since he officially revealed himself to the commercial masses back in 2003. Other musical genres have a had a multitude of polarizing figures and rap music has its fair share of legendary icons that defined the face of the movement, but none have consistently pushed the [...]
Pop-culture shoutouts, Selita Ebanks, a Lambo, greek mythology, dancers...farm animals, and so on. Perhaps the least endearing/most egregious scene is Ebanks spasming to "Power" as Kanye looks on. On the flip-side, Kanye running down the rural road outstrips most of what I've seen in the cinema or any other music video this year for sheer beauty. Major mileage-may-vary clip here.

Gosh, I feel really pretentious by saying this, but I actually like KanYe West's film "Runaway", if it's one thing KanYe know it's the visual language, and everything just comes together in this great piece: "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" in stores the 22nd of November.

A new G.O.O.D. Friday track is here, late as usually, but hey, I'm not complaining. The track, "Don't Look Down," features Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, and Big Sean, and has also been dubbed "(The Phoenix Story)" by Kanye on Twitter. Seems appropriate seeing as the Runaway movie, which will prominently feature the phoenix character, will be premiering tonight. MP3: Kanye West - "Don't Look Down" (Feat. Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, and Big Sean) My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is due out November 22nd.
Here’s one of the first cuts, from Kanye’s upcoming My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy LP. There is no official word yet if “Hell Of A Life” is the final version, but by listening to the sound quality it’s safe to say it’s presumably not. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy drops November 22nd. Click here to download MP3.
The Chi-Town n*gga with the Nas flow invites you to his innermost sublime thoughts where his vices and phoenix convene in unholy matrimony. It's dark, twisted and fanatical. It's different. It's Kanye. Over RZA's brooding, bring-the-ruckus production style of old and obviously refined by No I.D., we now know how My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy "allegedly" will kick off. Should counter any superfluous Pop curveballs he throws at us on the final countdown. G.O.O.D. Music makes for great diversity yet again. Download - [...]
It's Friday, or the day after and that means new Kanye, new G.O.O.D. Friday Saturday music. The latest to surface from the weekly tradition is "Don't Look Down (The Phoenix Story)." Mos Def , Lupe Fiasco and Big Sean feature on the marching beat track. Download audio file (Dont-Look-Down-feat.-Mos-Def- Lupe-Fiasco-Big-Sean.mp3) The time is getting closing closer until My Dark Beautiful Twisted Fantasy to be released. The official tracklist surfaced. We spot a few G.O.O.D. Friday releases but where is the M.I.A. feature? [...]
