After “I Don’t Fuck with You” and “Paradise,” “Blessings” is the third single off of Big Sean’s latest album, Dark Sky Paradise. The single features verses from Drake and Kanye with production by Vinylz and Allen Ritter. “Blessings” is a straightforward song about being grateful for the the money and possessions in these rappers lives.
I recently got into a car accident while this song was playing on the radio. Needless to say, the situation was dripping with irony (as well as transmission fluid).
Kanye’s latest single, “All Day” is off his upcoming album So Help Me God. The track combines Kanye’s signature style of using unconventional samples with more traditional hip-hop lyrics, such as, “How long you niggas ball? All day, nigga / How much time you spent at the mall? All day, nigga”
I know Kanye’s on another level, but could you imagine spending 8 – 12 hours at the mall? There’s not enough Auntie Anne’s pretzels in the world to get me through that kind of a marathon.
Future’s latest single, “I Won,” features him and Kanye rapping about their trophy
wives fiancees, Ciara and Kim Kardashian, respectively.
It must be flattering for Ciara to be in a group with Kim K, since Ciara is a platinum selling artist who has released five studio albums, twenty-seven singles and has won dozens of awards, including a Grammy, and Kim is, you know… very pretty.
“Sanctified,” featuring Kanye West and Big Sean, is one of the biggest tracks off of Rick Ross’s latest album, Mastermind, out now.
After doing some research regarding the title of this song, I quickly realized that I don’t know anything about sainthood or religious rites in general.
…and with lyrics like, “felatio’s amazin’, make grilled cheese for you the best,” it looks like Rick Ross doesn’t either.
Never one to miss an opportunity to steal the spotlight, Kanye West remixed Beyoncé’s single “Drunk In Love” with his signature style. The song begins with an homage to Nelson Mandela (of course), then segues to Kanye’s x-rated lyrics about Kim over a reworked instrumental: “Woo! Cause you a milf and I’m a motherfucker … You reverse, you reverse, and I pregnated your mouth, girl, ooooh.” subtle.
Since the original song features lyrical give and take between Beyonce and Jay Z, I keep waiting for Kim to come in with her verse… oh, she doesn’t sing?
…what does she do?
The first single from Mr. Modesty’s latest album, Yeezus, is “Black Skinhead.” The song is a solid representation of the album overall: amazing production, crazy lyrics. Like making toast in the bathtub, Kanye is shocking for the sake of being shocking – using symbols of black power as metaphors for sex.
Although it is a pretty incredible album…
There’s probably not many similarities between Kanye West and Tina Fey. (With the obvious exception that they’re both amazing in their respective fields). But one thing the two have in common is that they rarely tweet. Kanye does this to create mystery and gravity surrounding his tweets, while Tina Fey just isn’t into it. Either way, attention must be paid when one of them tries to communicate with lowly commoners like us. Today Mr. West typed:
@kanyewest: Our family Hov brought that real hip hop shit this morning so me and Pusha wanna keep that feeling going
Wow. I can’t believe he said something so profound. Well worth the three month wait. Pusha’s rhymes are solid, but it’s the Kayne-produced beat that really shines. It’s wacky and unorthodox – typical Kanye. I also enjoy the album artwork (that’s not sarcasm). I’d rather see nothing than most album covers (ahem DJ Kay Slay).
In “Birthday Song,” 2 Chainz raps, “All I want for my birthday is a big booty ho.” Reminescent of a young Freddie Mercury, wouldn’t you say?? Anyway, now all I want for my birthday is better music, and maybe for 2 Chainz to STFU…
Later, this happened.
“New God Flow” is the first single from GOOD Music‘s upcoming album, Cruel Summer, due out September 4th. The cheerleading at the end is unexpected, right?
“I Wish You Would” is the second single from DJ Khaled’s upcoming album, Kiss the Ring, (August 21). Now that the main problem – his constant turrets-like yelling – has been cleared up, I can focus on bigger issues. Such as, what is it you actually do, Mr. Khaled?…
