“swerve”

If I was 22 still, I’d say the best line was the “all the bad bit$hez” part that I didn’t chop out, but I can’t get away with that anymore.

And I love the whole Big Sean verse yet again, so I’m going with this. The youngun takes on Jay Z right here.

“oh do you not think so far ahead, cause I’ve been thinking ’bout foreva”

Filtered synth and a drum pattern, but this lil ditty has soul.  He’s got an album coming out soon. You gotta respect that he told Kanye he doesn’t want him on the album, and that he’d rather do it on his own.

Thinking about You 0:50 – 1:25

100 Kanye West – All of the Lights feat. Rihanna @ 1:23

Monday, November 15th, 2010

“cop lights, flash lights, spot lights, strobe lights, street lights..
fast life, drug life, thug life, rock life, every night”

Who better to help raise a glass to the 100th post than Kanye West. I’ve been riding with him through all the BS, and hearing him come back with an absolute stomper track like this just proves how good he really is. Musically, he’s untouchable. Defiant, triumphant, ruthless – he lets it all out on this part of the song. This track is going to be HUGE, maybe his biggest yet.

0094 Kanye and Taylor Swift @ the MTV Awards 2010

Monday, October 4th, 2010

“but tonight you’ll live it all again…”

A two parter, and I know this is old, but after listening again to both Taylor Swift and Kanye’s live performances  at the MTV awards, I want to say how f’in brilliant this spectacle was. I don’t know if they’re on the same label or not, or if Kanye knew her song was going to be about him? I hope he didn’t. Listening to the lyrics of  Innocent right after reading Kanye’s twitter stream apology a couple days prior plays like a modern music version of a Shakespearean play. The PR flacks who threw this one together deserve maximum credit for getting every last cent out of the Kanye/ Taylor Swift fiasco.

Listen to the best part of Taylor Swift’s song Innocent where she forgives Kanye, I love it.

And then Kanye to close out the show, with the weight of the night on his shoulders, blows the roof off with his MPC.

Listen to the best part of Kanye’s song Runaway with Pusha  T. where he makes a toast to scumbags and asks you to Runaway. Damn!
