Jay-Z Recorded a Verse for Kanye’s “Guilt Trip”

Monday, October 20th, 2014

During an interview with DJBoothTV at the A3C ProAudio conference, producer S1 reveals that the Yeezus track “Guilt Trip” was originally intended for the Watch The Throne album and Jay even recorded part of a verse for it. So that’s floating around somewhere in the worl. And you know the old internet maxim: if it exists, it will eventually leak.

Malik Yusef Describes New Kanye Album

Monday, October 6th, 2014

kanye-malik-yusef

It’s YEEZY ALBUM SEASON and Kanye is being as Kanye as he can possibly be about the new project, revealing very little and letting the speculation machine do his marketing for him. There is a small group of human beings (VIPs if you will) spread across the globe (I’m assuming) that have heard a preliminary version of the album, but nobody is really talking about it. And so the internet is left to disect passing comments and tidbits from people in the know, because that’s just what the internet does.

Longtime collaborator, G.O.O.D. Music co-architect and ‘Ye muse Malik Yusef recently offered some insight into the new album to Rolling Stone. He likened to a pair of boots:

“This album is different. It’s like a pair of Timberlands; like how Timberlands are not quite leather and not quite suede. It’s not the smooth, slick Chicago music sound we have right now and it’s not the ruggedness of just ‘hip-hop hip-hop hip-hop.’ We’re still working like a motherfucker. We’ve been all around the world [recording].”

He went on to say that although he and Kanye didn’t exactly see eye to eye on the creative direction of Yeezus, they’re getting along swimmingly during these new sessions and confirmed that ‘Ye does have about 20 songs finished.

Kanye Says The Yeezy III Drops in November

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Good news if this sort of thing turns you on: Kanye says we can expect to see his Yeezy III’s (or YEEZi’s, depending on who you ask), which will be his first new shoe since inking a deal with adidas earlier this year, sometime in November. Check out the video above to see him speak on it during a performance in Perth, Australia at around the 2:30 mark. He had previously suggested that they would drop in June, but an adidas rep later corrected that estimate, saying we weren’t likely to see any merchandise until next year. Obviously, it would make alot of financial sense for adidas to get them into stores prior to the holiday shopping season, so I guess we’ll see.
