    Critics are always fighting conflicting urges. On the one hand, there's the need to be objective and evaluate each work on its own merits. On the other, there's the desire to fit each new release from an artist into an over-arcing career narrative. The trick is to find a balance between the two.

    We just heard Kanye West's new interview with Zane Lowe for BBC 1, and as expected it was full of inspirational, passionate, and hilarious moments. The most surprising moment came when Kanye spoke of his last conversation with fashion instructor Louise Wilson before her death, which caused him to nearly break down in tears, something that-- by his own admission --he'd never done in an interview before.

    Kanye West's original interview with Zane Lowe has made it's way into the canon of legendary Kanye West interviews, and we're hoping his latest sit down with the BBC radio personality will leave a similar mark on history. The interview will stream on BBC 1 starting at 3 PM EST today, with a mix from Zane preceding the interview. With a new album on the way, and Ye's debut of his new song, "All Day", just yesterday at the Brit Awards, there should be plenty to talk about. Update: You can watch the full interview below.

    Dark Sky Paradise dropped earlier this week, with Big Sean set to move just under 150,000 copies, and now comes time to break it down on "Samples Of The Week." Although the album is a bit darker and more modern-sounding than Hall Of Fame and Finally Famous, it still makes use of some dope samples, with producers Kanye West and Key Wane digging some gold

    We've reached a day and age when a new Kanye West interview is an event in and of itself. Thanks in part to his iconic "George Bush hates black people" quip in 2005 and a pair of headline-worthy outbursts two years ago, Mr. West now commands millions of peoples' attention every time he makes an appearance on a talk show, even when the discussion centers on something as inconsequential as a sneaker launch.

    Kanye West's interviews are generally more eventful than that of your average artists, and Zane Lowe interviews are generally a little more eventful than that of your average radio host's, so together, you get a pretty magical combination. When Kanye's last interview with Zane dropped back in 2013, it spawned plenty of classic Kanye quotes, and was even the source for Jimmy Kimmel's parody that launched he and Ye's brief feud.

    Big Sean has always been a gifted wordsmith. Puns, metaphors, similes--you name it. On occasion, though, he's been guilty of reaching: "ass-quake, ass-tate, ass-tray..." He's better than that. And on Dark Sky Paradise he proves it. Lyrically, this is Sean's deepest work, but he doesn't ditch the wordplay games. In fact, some of these bars are his wittiest ever. These rhymes will have you doing double-takes, and by the time the lyrics click, Sean's already bars ahead.

    Big Sean's third commercial album, Dark Sky Paradise, is in stores and online today. It's safe to say the G.O.O.D. Music rapper's past album releases didn't exactly live up to the hype, however the hype for DSP seems to be working for Sean, not against him. While it may not be an instant classic, it's shaping up to be Big Sean's most cohesive project yet.
