Video: Pusha T’s Favorite Verse (So Appalled)

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Pusha T on “So Appalled” featuring Kanye West, Jay-Z, CyHi The Prynce, Swizz Beatz & RZA:

“Cause I’ma tell you, the truth of the matter is: it wasn’t what it was, when I did So Appalled, it was just me and Ye on it… When I heard So Appalled, it was me, Ye, Jay-Z and CyHi.”

“I feel like it was a good moment cause I don’t know if I’ll ever get on a record with Jay-z again, but if I don’t… I did.”

Kanye Releases Statement on “Mama’s Boy” Leak

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Someone got their hands on the a cappella version of “Mama’s Boy” from the MBDTF sessions (since there was more than one beat for the song) and threw it over one of their own beats – which, by the way, is the best way to add insult to injury when leaking someone else’s work. Ye hasn’t acknowledged leaks since he gave up on Twitter, but being the perfectionist that he is, it’s understandable that he would put out a statement like this:

The version of the Kanye West recording “Mama’s Boy” that arrived on blog sites earlier this week is entirely bogus and unsanctioned, and violates the artist’s creative intentions. As is often the unfortunate case, an unknown party or parties got a hold of Kanye West’s vocal track and added their own soundbed to it, effectively and falsely releasing it as a Kanye West track from the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions. The result in no way resembles the final song Kanye West intended his fans to hear, and he is deeply disappointed that one of the most personal, meaningful and special songs he has ever written would reach people in this way. Needless to say, measures are being taken to identify and prosecute the persons responsible for leaking this material.

I definitely noticed the song was really offbeat at certain points but figured it was what happens when the verse is laid before the beat is picked. Plus there was some confusion over who had done the beat in the first place.

Video: Kanye @ Bowery Ballroom

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Up top is Yeezy’s 10-minute long speech at the end of his performance last night at the Bowery Ballroom. Ye touches on first day/week sales, interviews, Matt Lauer, blogs, George W. Bush, Taylor Swift and moving 600k. (Miss Info has the full transcription.)

To do an album, right, after the year that I had… after all the “Your career is over” and “die n*gga, die! and “You’ll never make music again!” and then come back and do 100,000 the first day, digital alone… to be safe to do 600,000 in the first week, and I don’t talk about the numbers, but what that number says is that people want me to keep making music… and for me not to give up. No radio singles, no #1 record, no top 10 record!

“…I can’t be your role model, I can’t be your savior, I can’t be your anti-Christ… I don’t know what the fuck Illuminati is. I like clothes and I still like girls, I dont give a fuck what you think and on that note. I love ya’ll.”

After the jump, he does pretty much the whole album. “Dark Fantasy” with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and Teyana Taylor, Nicki Minaj comes out for “Monster”, Teyana Taylor fills in for Rihanna on “All Of The Lights”, “Devil In A New Dress” with Rick Ross, Hell Of A Life, and “So Appalled” with Swizz Beatz, Pusha T and CyHi Da Prynce.
