Kanye West – Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Imperial Remix)

UK producer Imperial goes deep on this remix of Kanye’s thought-provoking single ‘Diamonds from Sierra Leone’. He keeps the bounce from start to finish, layered with somewhat heavier drums and that good old vocal chop to smoothen things out. The vibe is totally fresh and up to date. Mad props on the beat change to keep the listener guessing what could come next.

Need I say more? Tune in and get with the program.

Music Videos That Stood Out In 2013 | video

I hate making year-end lists because my opinions often change. So instead of calling this alphabetically ordered list “The Best Hip-Hop Videos of 2013,” it’s “Videos That Stood Out in 2013,” although I will say that Bambu and Prometheus Brown’s “Books” video is my favorite. There’s no other video I’ve Tumblr’d more this year than “Books.”

Kanye West Gets Interviewed And For Once Is Asked About His Experiences And Music

So, seems as if Kanye West has taken to interviews on the radio waves all of a sudden (with the Breakfast Club and Sway broadcasts getting a buzzing reaction on twitter for the arguments and raised voices, and all the commotion surrounding him is getting kinda tedious now), but among all the hysteria is this one in which, believe it or not, Ye is asked about things other than his celebrity and his fashion, and demonstrates a sense of humility. Here is just 10 minutes of the full interview, which was conducted for the Juan Epstein podcast,..

Seth Rogen & James Franco Parodies Kanye West’s ‘Bound 2′!

Yesterday the internet went stir-crazy as actors Seth Rogen & James Franco took Kimye‘s ‘Bound 2′ video, and did a parody to it. They made it happen when they took a break from working on their upcoming film The Interview. Hopefully this video will help you get through your day with laughs. I know this is unrelated to the site, but considering the people involved and their nature is what made me post this in the first place.

Shoutout to AnimalNewYork for the side-by-side view!

Add-2 Challenges Kanye West: “Sorry Kanye, But This Verse Is Better.”

Somehow, some way, Kanye West always manage to find himself in some controversy. Whether he’s beating up a photographer, or that stunt he pulled on stage against Taylor Swift back in ’09, he just somehow manages to find himself back in the spotlight. My thing is… why? But that’s neither here nor there. Anyhow, a few weeks ago he posted this about his second verse on New Slaves – on twitter:

I open the debate… The 2nd verse of New Slaves is the best rap verse of all time….meaning … OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF..

Lupe Fiasco recently released details on his latest project titled Peace Of Paper/Cup Of Jayzus. The Chicago emcee took to twitter the other night to reveal some of the details of the project including a release date of September 13th.

!llmind – !llmind Beats For Kanye West EP

It’s been a few months since !llmind has released his last beat tape, dedicated to J Dilla, and here he is back with another one! These beats were made around the time Kanye West’s Cruel Summer LP came out. I don’t want to give too much; he explains how it went down below…

“Kanye West is undoubtedly one of the most exciting producer/artists to emerge in the last decade. His music is one of the few I can safely say I whole-heartedly admire (next to the late great J. Dilla). I had the pleasure of..
