Kanye West sat down with BBC’s Zane Lowe to talk about himself. The pretentious interview lasted for an hour and Jimmy Kimmel decided to spoof it as “Kanye Kid (re)Kreation.” Two kids recited actual lines from the weird sit down.
Evidently Kanye’s new pimp, Kris Jenner, caught wind of the spoof and emailed the hilarious sketch to her daughter’s baby’s daddy. He wasn’t too thrilled about it because he fired a few angry and belligerent tweets Jimmy’s way. Read More →
Nick Jonas wants to be Taylor Swift so badly. “R.I.P.” singer Rita Ora ripped his heart out, and he laments on new song “What Do I Mean To You.” He admitted the bitter lyrics were about Rita—whose name he mentions in the second verse—in a recent interview.
The beautiful LeToya Luckett stars in Future’s video for “Honest.” The Colin Tilley-lensed video is shot so well, you almost disregard the blood streaming from your ears.
Elle Varner’s relationship with NBA player Iman Shumpert has already met its demise.
Tinie Tempah follows “Trampoline,” one of the worst records I’ve ever heard, with “Children of the Sun,” a universally appealing track courtesy of John Martin’s soaring chorus. Tinie’s inspired verses aren’t that bad either.
Lorde is the latest indie sensation on the brink of mainstream superstardom, which means she’s at the brink of obscurity. The Lana Del Rey-inspired singer has followed her top ten debut single, “Royals,” with a less infectious but equally impressive track titled “Team.”
Solange is featured on the titular track of Janelle Monáe’s The Electric Lady, but Lady Monáe felt the song needed a few more eccentric souls. She recruited rap legends Big Boi and Cee Lo Green for the remix.
Britney Spears looks bored and constipated on the “Work Bitch!” single cover.

Sam, portrayed by Tyler, the Creator, orders his goons to beat up Wolf Haley, also portrayed by Tyler, in the trailer for WOLF, the movie adaptation of his latest album.
If the members of Odd Future were less offensive and made music crafted for radio, they’d be Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. The way these guys’ minds are set up…look, they stay inspiring me. Watch Mack & Ryan’s video for “White Walls.” There are a lot of cameos
Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes recruits Jason Mraz for his new single, radio-friendly single “Rough Water.”
“Brandy’s little sister lame and he know it now,” recited a skirt-wearing kilt-clad Kanye West last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Evidently Kanye caught wind of Ray J’s viral song, “I Hit It First,” and decided to change the original opening lyrics (“All them other niggas lame and you know it now”) of “Bound 2.”
Charlie Wilson salvaged what would have been a dull performance by a effortlessly singing the hook. The soul legend even added a few of his signature “shabba dabba tweet twee twees” in for good measure. Read More →
Is Jay Z’s relationship with his prodigy Kanye West destined for the same outcome as Gucci Mane’s relationship with Waka Flocka Flame? Apparently so.
Jay Z sabotaged the release of Kanye West’s Yeezus (and J. Cole’s Born Sinner and Wale’s The Gifted) by unexpectedly announcing the release of his own album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, just days before Yeezus hit stores.
The partnership with Samsung elevated ‘Holy Grail’ to a grander playing field than other albums of its kind. The shallow deal made the actual album that much more interesting and made albums in the same category that much more obsolete. Read More →
Kanye West is coming to a city near you, and he’s bringing hip-hop’s pride and glory, Kendrick Lamar, with him. The “Yeezus” tour—’Ye’s first solo tour in five years—kicks off on October 19th in Seattle. Peep the dates here.

Katlynn Simone of BET’s The Game chatted with Megan Thomas, Kevin John and Fallon Mercedes of AfterBuzz TV to speak on her role as Brittany “Britt-Bratt” Pitts, her new single “Beautiful Lie” and more.
Big Sean sneeringly asked, “Who’s Papoose?” on The Breakfast Club, and Remy Ma’s husband responded by mentioning Kanye West’s skirt-wearing ways, Sean’s speaking voice and Pusha T’s delayed album in a scathing diss. Honestly, it’s pretty decent. The cover art is so 2007, though.
Rick Ross calls himself a “mastermind,” but everything he makes sounds like everything he’s already made. “Reductive” is a more fitting word for the Biggest Bawse. Listen to “No Games” featuring Future.
Chrisette Michele hasn’t adjusted to the modern way of promoting an album, so Better isn’t receiving the proper attention it deserves. Still, though, the jazzy singer is delivering quality videos. The latest is “Love Won’t Leave Me Out,” and the stunning clip bears a striking resemblance to Khia’s “Been A Bad Girl.” Models included.
And we thought Kobe Bryant was alone in unfollowing ex-teammates… Steelers coach Mike Tomlin unfollowed players that were cut last week.
Katy Perry wants to be India.Arie so badly. After becoming one with nature in her visually enthralling “Roar” video, the artificial pop star poses topless in a field of sunflowers for the Prism albumcover. Sorry, Mrs. Tarzan, I’m not buying it.
Speaking of earthy women, Alicia Keys speaks on what it means to be powerful, vulnerable, elegant and tough simultaneously in Originmagazine.
Meek Mill is doing all he can to make people care about Dreamchasers 3. He recruits Nicki Minaj, Fabolous and French Montana for “I B On That,” a song included on the project. A video will accompany the track.
Young Jeezy, 35, realized he’s a “grown-up now” and decided to drop the “Young” from his moniker. Personally, I think it’s a sensible and necessary decision. I’m planning a few changes around these parts as well.
Meanwhile, Jeezy appears in YG’s video for “My Nigga” alongside Rich Homie Quan. YG’s My Crazy Life hits stores on November 19th.
Speaking of the Future-sounding entertainer, Quan raps about “Narcotics” on a snare-heavy, SOS-produced track. The “Type of Way” rapper addresses the similarities between him and Mr. BugattiBentley on “Another Me.”
Nicki Minaj is trying her best to prove she’s indeed a rapper. Seemingly, the “Stupid Hoe” rapstress is taking every job that comes her way like J.Lo. She and her ever-changing style appeared in two videos that premiered this week—DJ Khaled’s “I Wanna Be With You” featuring Future and Rick Ross and Wale’s “Clappers” featuring Juicy J.
While the Feds watch 2 Chainz, the NSA spies on MGMT—at least that’s what’s going on in the outlandish trailer for their self-titled third album. A possum also loses its wits in their bathroom.
Kid Cudi and Pusha T passed up on “Vortex,” an aurally pleasing, WZRD-produced track, so King Chip plugged it into his 44108 mixtape. It’s truly a treat. Read More →
