Video: Kanye West – Coldest Winter

Directed by Nabil Elderkin, who told MTV earlier today that unlike their previous videos together (“Paranoid,” “Welcome To Heartbreak,”) Kanye was not involved in the editing process and was only presented a final version for approval.

Like the Paranoid video, this video has a new/different mix than the album version.

“This is definitely more of a haunting one. ‘Cause this is sort of a remix… This one he got into his production a little bit more.”

    Dead @ the dj khaled interview on allhiphop that interviewer was being sarcatic playing the nigga in the interview. I’ve never read a interview like that, usually these dude stay kissing these rappers and djs ass.

    You know its we are the best and not we the best?

    What exactly is your job at def jam?

    Lol

  46. The Killer Says:

    Kanye is the GOAT

  47. The Killer Says:

    Rakim retired, biggie is dead, Jay fell off, Drake is too young

  48. Sleep reps the republic of Brooklyn Says:

    AllHipHop.com: Speaking of new artists, you brought out Ace Hood. After two albums with lukewarm responses do you still think he’s going to blow? 

    DJ Khaled: I mean, Ace Hood is still 21 years old. The hoes, I mean women, they love him, and he has potential to be a superstar. It’s going to take hard work and I have his back 100%.

     AllHipHop.com: So how is Victory different from We Global? They both have very dominating names.

    DJ Khaled: It just gotten bigger. All my albums have been amazing, and incredible.

    AllHipHop.com: Okay, then how is it bigger?

    DJ Khaled: The concepts get bigger, the record gets bigger, and I make timeless music.

    AllHipHop.com: You just said, “I make timeless music.� Tell me what’s your involvement in the music making process?

    DJ Khaled: DJ Khaled’s involvement is everything in the record. DJ Khaled comes up with the concept. DJ Khaled gets with the producer and is either me making it or somebody else making it with me orchestrating the situation. DJ Khaled is bringing the energy from the artist, to me, to the producer, then to the room. I am Berry Gordy of Hip-Hop.

    AllHipHop.com: Did you just say you’re Berry Gordy of Hip-Hop?

    DJ Khaled: You better believe it.

    AllHipHop.com: Since you mentioned that. I see some sort of similarities between you and Diddy. He orchestrated many albums, and he too put in various catchphrases in them. But he didn’t directly get with the musical process. Do you…

    DJ Khaled: I wouldn’t say that. I know Diddy very personally. He is always involved in the musical process. I don’t know where you’re getting your information from, but Diddy and Khaled are 100% involved in the music-making process. I am involved 100 million percent in the music-making process.

    AllHipHop.com: Right, so if it’s a sampled record do you actually…

    DJ Khaled: It’s called direction. It’s called energy. It’s called an idea. It’s called maybe having a melody in the head. There are too many things involved. That’s why I’m trying to tell you that I’m the hood maestro. You know what I’m trying to tell you?

    AllHipHop.com: …Uh, yes. 

    DJ Khaled: This album is a f**king classic, man. We make hits!

    AllHipHop.com: You’re very energetic.

    DJ Khaled: Well, thank you, my brother.

    AllHipHop.com: Why do you always say, “We the best!�?  

    DJ Khaled: Because that’s my brand. [Laughs.] It’s like Diddy saying, “Bad Boy.�

    AllHipHop.com: Right, but you do know that grammatically speaking its “we are the best.�

    DJ Khaled: No, it’s called We The Best. And it’s not grammatically incorrect. It’s what we want it to be.

    AllHipHop.com: Who is “we�?

    DJ Khaled: “We� is the people of the streets. “We� is the people that love music. “We� is the people that love greatness.

    AllHipHop.com: Then what about those who are against your causes?

    DJ Khaled: I don’t know them guys, and I don’t entertain them guys. That’s called life, man. It’s more love than hate! We winning, baby.

  49. Harlem World Says:

    Hip Hop Interviewer: Tell us about the new album…

    Rapper: Well, basically my album is a classic, i got Wayne on a track, classic, mcClassic, classic..did i mention it was a classic? It drops tomorrow…classic.

  50. Harlem World Says:

    AllHipHop.com: What were your thoughts on the whole Taylor Swift/Kanye West situation?

    Memphis Bleek: I think that was staged man. Because if that was me with a bottle of Hennessy on the red carpet, first of all, with no bag over it – Jail! Before I even got in, to take the mic. Jail! Then I go in there witt the bottle and then I get on stage and take [the mic]…Jail again! Everything thing that happened, if it was me in that situation, jail is involved. Like he just go on stage, they blogged about him, put him on every late night show and she blows up? He just really solidified her being the princess of America. She’s America’s sweetheart now.
