Kanye West & Jay-Z - Otis

Kanye West Jay-Z Watch the Throne Otis
Here it is, a second taste of the upcoming collaborative album Watch the Throne between Kanye West and Jay-Z (H.A.M. being the first of course). “Otis,” named after the late, great Otis Redding, features heavy sampling of the soul singer’s 1966 song “Try a Little Tenderness.”

As expected, Kanye and Jay-Z showcase their lyrical prowess on this old-school sounding track. Noticeably absent is a drum beat, auto-tune, and heavy bass that typically have been accompanying the hip-hop tracks of late. The result is a raw, unfettered hip-hop track that’s destined to go down as one of the year’s best.

Watch the Throne is set to be released via digital download on August 1st, while physical CDs will be in stores on August 5th.

Kanye West feat. Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj - Monster Music Video [Official]

Kanye West Monster Music Video
Back in December, portions of Kanye’s “Monster” music video were leaked, much to our delight. We were shown a very dark, macabre kind of music video complete with hanging corpses, beheadings, and S&M.

Now, with the release of the official video for the hit single off of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, we get to see English director Jake Nava’s work as it was meant to be seen (and it’s more twisted than we could have imagined).

Broken Social Scene Performs Modest Mouse's "The World at Large"

Canadian indie rock band Broken Social Scene recently performed their rendition of Modest Mouse’s hit 2004 song “The World at Large.” They did it in conjunction with The Voice Project, which is a non-profit that raises money for women in war-ravaged Northern Uganda. The Voice Project works by getting artists to cover other artists songs and continuing one long chain of covers. The artists thus spread the word about the non-profit and advertisers, sponsors, and individuals donate on their site.

The video gives a glimpse into what it’s like to be Broken Social Scene when they’re working in the studio. They definitely put their trademark sound into the Modest Mouse classic. I love the way they can seemingly just mess around on their instruments and create they perfect melody.
