    Kanye West's "All Day" has been kicking around since last summer, but we finally got to hear the complete version last week, after an inspired rendition at the Brit Awards prior to that. Reception to the track has been good, as it has a little something for every type of Kanye fan. Of course, Ye always brings it with the videos, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the clip for the new anthem, and while it's yet to hit YouTube, Kanye decided to premiere the Steve McQueen (director of 12 Years A Slave and Shame)-helmed clip at Paris Fashion Week today.

    While opinions of Big Sean may still be mixed, one thing people seem to be able to agree on is that Dark Sky Paradise is a major step up from the rapper's previous studio albums. A few things fell into place that ensured the record would be Sean's best yet, including a bonafide hit, and Kanye as an active participant in it's recording, but a major part of the reason the record came together so well for Sean was being able to record in the comfort of his own home, which he explained in an interview with Tim Westwood.

    Skepta is finally getting some recognition in the U.S., thanks to co-signs from rap's two biggest stars, Drake and Kanye West. Yeezy brought him out, and publicly thanked him, during his "All Day" performance, and Drake used one of his lines, and also thanked him, on his latest mixtape. Though he doesn't need a co-sign from anyone, the increased attention has put more worldwide hype on the London MC than ever before. Skepta's moment is now, and he knows it. And it's not only high-time for Skepta, but for U.K. grime as a whole, which has been criminally ignored by mainstream hip-hop.

    Kanye West recently debuted his newest single "All Day" at the 2015 Brit Awards. The Awards ceremony, which was streamed live in the U.K. via ITV, was supposed to be censored for television. Censor Kanye West? Never a good idea. Though reports say Kanye was told to perform a T.V.-friendly version of "All Day," he instead performed the song in its entirety, expletives and all. Though ITV attempted to selectively censor the performance, they ended up muting Kanye intermittently, while still allowing a few expletives to be heard.

Part of that group was Vic Mensa, who recently featured on "Wolves," Kanye's latest single before "All Day."

    Since we've known him, Kanye West has never been afraid to express his feelings for either his mother and/or daughter, so for him to get 2 new tattoos in their honor shouldn't come much as a surprise.  On Thursday night (or more like Friday morning overseas), Kanye West did just that though, and got his daughter and mother's birth dates tattooed on his wrists. However, Yeezy was apparently "3, 4 seconds from wildin’" because Kim, who captured the photos, said she had to stop him from getting the tattoo on his forehead as he originally wanted.
