Jay-z Kanye West

Kanye West and Jay-Z have been working on an album together over the last few months. The album, Watch the Throne, was originally set to be released back in the summer. After some delay, we now know that it’s going to drop next week, according to Kayne himself. He made the admission during his New Years celebration with Jay-Z and Rihanna. Considering the fact that these are two guys at the very top of their games, it should be nothing short of mind-blowing.

Kanye West's Monster Music Video Leaks

Kanye West Jay-z Rick Ross Nicki Minaj Monster

Kanye West’s highly-anticipated music video for his hit song Monster, featuring Rick Ross, Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj, was leaked hours ago. Earlier this month, Kanye released a 35 second teaser for it, which drummed up a ton of controversy— namely because there appeared to be dead models all over the place. With the leak of the full video, we can see that those dead models are actually zombies. Awesome.

Take a look at the 1:55 mark to see a Justin Bieber lookalike getting attacked by zombies.

The audio quality is a little iffy, but that’s what we get for watching a leaked version of the video.

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.

Jay-Z feat. Swizz Beatz - "On to the Next One" Music Video

jay-zCheck out Jay-Z’s new music video for one of the sleeper hits off of The Blueprint 3, “On to the Next One.” The song’s main hook samples one of the more obscure lines from French duo Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.”, much in the same way that T.I.’s “Swagga Like Us” sampled M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes.”

Is it just me, or is Jay-Z going for the Kanye West look with those shades, leather gloves, and futuristic diamond-padded jacket (complete with popped collar)?

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.
