The Latest from Kanye West & Dark Twisted Fantasy

Kanye West

Every Friday for the past month or so, Kanye West has been releasing tracks off of his upcoming album, Dark Twisted Fantasy. I’m particularly stoked because up until all of this, he seemed to be laying low and keeping out of the spotlight nearly a year. Maybe it’s due to the fact that he’s now obsessed with Twitter.

In case you haven’t been keeping up, below is a rundown of the stuff he’s released. I’m really loving “Monster,” a track that Courtney first gave me a heads up on, and “Runaway,” which was performed at last night’s VMAs.

Kid Cudi Performs Live at RSVP Gallery in Chicago with Common & Consequence

Last night at the grand opening of RVSP Gallery in Chicago, a star-studded line-up of artists performed including Really Doe, GLC, Mr. Hudson, Consequence, Big Sean, Common and Kid Cudi. Cudi’s set was pretty epic, and it included familiar songs such as Jay-Z’s single “Already Home,” “Down & Out,” “Pursuit of Happiness,” A Tribe Called Quest’s “Buggin’ Out,” “Day ‘N Night,” and “Make Her Say.” If the free show with Cudi wasn’t enough, surprise appearances by both Consequence and Common nearly blew the roof off of the place. Check it out.

makehersay-videoshoot-1-kid-cudiEarlier today KiD CuDi’s “Make Her Say” music video was released by Universal Music Group. It’s the rising hip-hop star’s third music video out there, with the first two being “Day ‘n’ Nite,” and its Crookers remix counterpart. When I first heard “Make Her Say” back in May, I thought it was a hilarious, novelty song. Since then, it’s definitely grown on me, and I feel like the song is blowing up. I mean, hey, with the unbelievably talented team of Kid CuDi, Kanye West, Common, and A-Trak, it’s pretty much expected that an amazingly hot song will be birthed. Check it out.
